Music from Bob Dylan, Guns N’ Roses and AC/DC are among the latest artists to be added to the Rock Band game franchise on Xbox.

Rock Band 2 – the follow-up to the hugely successful Xbox video game will see Bob Dylan’s debut on a video game, with the 1975 song “Tangled Up In Blue”, from the album Blood On The Tracks being made available to play.

Highly anticipated new material from Guns N’ Roses‘s long long awaited Chinese Democracy album is also to appear on the game. The track “Shackler’s Revenge” will be the first track to be officially released from the album.

AC/DC have also signed up for an exclusive deal licensing their material to the game, where players form a virtual band and play along to famous songs on ‘console’ instruments.

Since it launched last year, Rock Band is reported to have generated over $200 million for its developers, Harmonix Music Systems.

Rock Band 2 is released in September.
