“Rock Band” To Breed A Whole New Batch Of Riot Grrrls (Maybe)

Sure, the riot grrrl standard-bearers Bikini Kill didn’t necessarily have proficiency at the top of their priority list, so putting their songs in the “hit your marks” music videogames that are selling so many copies today seems a little bit silly. But that doesn’t mean I’m not pretty excited about their girl-crush ode “Rebel Girl” officially being on the set list for Rock Band 2, which will also include tracks by Lush, L7, Paramore, and Joan Jett as well as Judas Priest’s insane “Painkiller,” Megadeth’s “Peace Sells,” and that new Guns N’ Roses track we mentioned earlier. (Hey, is there any way that we can modify this thing so that I can have some friends over for a rendition of “Suck My Left One,” or maybe a Bratmobile track or two?) Full list after the jump.
