Harmonix has announced two new songs for Rock Band 4 through its official Twitter account. They are both U2 jams. “Cedarwood Road” from the group’s debut and “I Will Follow” from 2014’s Songs of Innocence, which I assume people are only familiar with because it became a running joke after automatically adding itself to all iTunes libraries with the iPhone 6.

I was looking at the fancy cheese section of my local grocery store last night, window shopping a bit because money’s got me curbing that cheese lust, and “Sunday Bloody Sunday” was playing at which point I thought, 1) weird song to be casually playing in a grocery store, all things considered, but so inoffensive no one really notices, and 2) U2’s a bit of a silly band. Then I bought three carrots, a zucchini, and some milk to make a delicious carrot soup.

I wonder if U2 is the only band trickling in (and with two songs!) ahead of Rock Band 4‘s launch next month, given that we supposedly got a final (U2-free) set list recently.
