As if the reissue of Pearl Jam's Ten wasn't massive enough, the Seattle quintet revealed today that the 1991 album will be playable in its entirety on Rock Band 2. The Rock Band download package will be available March 24th, which happens to be the same day the reissue of Pearl Jam's debut album is released. "Just hearing the first few notes of 'Jeremy' or 'Alive' brings back all the raw emotion of this incredible, hugely important album," said Paul DeGooyer, Senior Vice President of Electronic Games and Music for MTV Networks. "We are honored to be working with Pearl Jam to deliver Ten as it is re-issued."
The album's "Alive" was previously playable as an in-game song on Rock Band 2. The announcement comes just hours after Guitar Hero and Metallica revealed they were hooking up for a new GH game. As for the Ten pack, we're already counting the days until we can inevitably score "Weak" while trying to emulate Eddie Vedder's high notes during the chorus of "Oceans."
