Harmonix and MTV Games announced this week’s line up coming to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content, including new tracks from legendary classic rock band Journey and Pat Benatar, as well as music from Scottish rock band Glasvegas and alternative band Von Bondies.

The track reached #8 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and also recently became the first catalog track in history to achieve online digital sales of more than 2 million. Journey made its Rock Band debut with “Any Way You Want It” featured on the Rock Band 2 soundtrack.
