For those of you who like both video games and cleverly worded, steel-guitar-friendly music that isn’t quite country, yet isn’t quite rock and roll, “Rock Band 2” has got you covered.

For those of you who like both video games and cleverly worded, steel-guitar-friendly music that isn’t quite country, yet isn’t quite rock and roll, “Rock Band 2” has got you covered.

This week, the game’s developers announced the debut of “Alt Country 01,” a song bundle from five alternative country acts, in the Rock Band Music Store. Players can now step into the simulated shoes of Neko Case, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams, Drive-By Truckers, and the Old 97’s.

That’s entertainment, y’all!

“Alt Country 01” Tracks:

Neko Case “People Got A Lotta Nerve” Middle Cyclone (2009)
Steve Earle “Satellite Radio” Washington Square Serenade (2007)
Lucinda Williams “Can’t Let Go” Car Wheels On A Gravel Road (1998
Drive-By Truckers “Three Dimes Down” Brighter Than Creation’s Dark (2008)
Old 97’s “Timebomb (live)” Alive & Wired (2005)
