The Phish Live Track Pack features
live recordings of “Sample in a Jar,” one of their few studio recordings
released as a single, “Down with Disease,” which appeared throughout pop culture
in the mid-90’s and led to a surge in the band’s popularity, and “Chalk Dust
Torture,” the song lead guitarist Trey Anastasio once called his favorite to
play on stage.

time in the virtual spotlight on the Guitar Hero stage features the following
three tracks off of White Lies for Dark Times: “Number With No Name,” “Shimmer &
Shime” and “Fly One Time.”
