New "Beatles: Rock Band" Trailer Arrives, Alleged Track List Leaks

August 17, 2009 3:11 PM ET

Another sneak peek at the upcoming The Beatles: Rock Band has been released, which again shows the amazing attention to detail that went into producing a game worthy of the Fab Four's esteemed catalog. The newest trailer, via IGN, shows clips of "Twist and Shout" being performed in Liverpool, "Can't Buy Me Love" on the Ed Sullivan Show stage, a "Yellow Submarine" dreamscape and a "Revolution" filled with wartime imagery. Additionally, we also see how the actual gameplay will look on-screen, including the three-part harmony feature that will make its debut with TB:RB.

In addition to the new trailer, the full video for "Ticket to Ride" as performed by the in-game Beatles at the digital Shea Stadium has also been posted on the game's official Website. As Rock Daily reported last week, The Beatles: Rock Band will also unearth previously unreleased audio and studio banter from the Beatles, as well as a "story mode" that gives the back-story of the band's songs. The Beatles: Rock Band will be released September 9th, the same day the Fab Four's entire remastered catalog is reissued.

Look back at all the LPs in the Beatles catalog, with their RS reviews.

Video game blog Worth Playing has an alleged complete The Beatles: Rock Band 45-song track list that comes from an upcoming issue of Game Informer. If it's accurate, as advertised, it spans the Beatles' entire catalog, from "I Want To Hold Your Hand" to the "Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows" mash-up from 2006's Love compilation. "All You Need Is Love" will also be released as downloadable content, with proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders, while the entire Abbey Road will be available for download soon after 09/09/09. UPDATE: Harmonix and MTV Games have confirmed 44 out of the 45 songs on Rock Band's Beatles playlist, meaning the list below is accurate. The last song, however, remains a mystery.

Song Stories

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
