“Hey hey, you you!” Canadian singer-songwriter Avril Lavigne is making her Rock Band debut in the Rivals Expansion .  Avril Lavigne Pack 1 brings 3 of her biggest hitsComplicated, My Happy Ending, and What the Hell. 

According to the blog post from Harmonix, each song makes the greatest use of Rock Band techniques for both beginners and experts.


The pack starts with Complicated, which was the second most successful single and was nominated for two Grammy’s in 2002.  Harmonix emphasizes the bass in this song, with enjoyable harmonies.

My Happy Ending was the number nine single in the United States in 2004 for four weeks.  The song provides plenty of opportunity for Hammer On’s and Pull Off’s, and is the second song in the pack that emphasizes the bass.

Last but not least, What the Hell, is the second-highest selling single of her career.  According to Harmonix “the handclaps have been replaced by the drums.”  Vocally challenging, the song provides plenty of opportunities for soloists and harmonies to shine.

The first pack will be available for $5.49 as a bundle, and $1.99 for each song.  Rock Band 4: Rivals is currently available for PS4 and Xbox One.

About me: Christine "smollbirb" Marten is a recent college grad that has been playing video games since she was gifted with her first NES console in 1999. Known as LuxAterna on Steam, she started as a games journalist in 2012 and has been writing about games and the industry since. In college, she acted as the president/clubmother for the gaming club, and hosted her own gaming radio show called SoundWave Games. When she is not gaming she can be seen cosplaying at conventions, working with non-profits that fundraise through video games (like Extra Life and Child's Play), acting as community manager for The Senpai Project, playing League of Legends with friends, or serenading passerbyers with her violin skills on the streets of NYC. She will literally play anything that is thrown at her (but please don't throw to hard she is smoll). She enjoys indie games and horror games especially, and her favorite series of all times is Kingdom Hearts. Her third love, after video games and violin, is puns. Although it is a dangerous life she makes them whenever she hears the opportunity to do so. Christine hopes to bring her own spin on storytelling to the GAW community as she continues to seek out whatever the world has to offer!
