The Strokes and Foster the People Tracks are Headed to "Rock Band"

When we read that Foster the People are making their Rock Band debut, we naturally expected "Pumped Up Kicks," the best song to come out of last summer, to be at the top of the list of tracks being imported. But instead it's the band's "Helena Beat" and "Don't Stop (Color on the Walls)" that are making it over to the music game.

"Pumped Up Kicks," though, will be in Rock Band Blitz, the upcoming new entry for PSN and XBLA.

The Strokes, on the other hand, are sending their semi-recent single "Under Cover of Darkness" to the game.

All three tracks are compatible with Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz, which will use a controller instead of the bulky plastic instruments we're used to.

The Foster the People tracks feature keyboard support, and the Strokes track has the option to upgrade to Pro Guitar/Bass versions for $1. All three base songs are $1.99 and will drop in July 24.
