Rock! Rock! Rock! We just can't get enough rock! T. Rex bring some lovely rock of the '70s glam variety to the Rock Band Store next week to remind people that "20th Century Boy" is featuring in Rock Band 3's setlist. There are three T. Rex tracks on the way next week, all taken from 1971 album 'Electric Warrior', which features in Rolling Stone's 500 greatest albums list.

There's also an eight pack of REM tracks from seven of the band's albums, including their 1981 debut 'Murmur', third album 'Fables of the Reconstruction', 1988's 'Green', 2008 album 'Accelerate' and more. Bottom line? REM fans are being spoilt rotten next week.

I'll pick up "it's the end of the world as we know it." I'm not a huge R.E.M. fan but they're okay.

"Children of the Revolution" isn't from "Electric Warrior"... it was a stand-alone single, later ending up on the CD reissue of "Tanx". Nonetheless, three great songs from one of the greatest acts of the 70s.

No "Man on the moon"? or "The Great Beyond"?

"What's the frequency Kenneth" is the only one I might get
