Iggy Pop, Bon Jovi, Vampire Weekend, More On Board for LEGO Rock Band

Call him the Godfather of Punk or modern-day rock's weird uncle. Either way, Stooges frontman Iggy Pop is set to hit the stage for yet another generation, this time in Lego form.

Both Pop and his song "The Passenger," the David Bowie-produced track from Lust for Life, are officially joining Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Vampire Weekend and The Hives for the upcoming LEGO Rock Band. The game, which was first announced in April, is now set for a Nov. 3 release.

In the meantime, Harmonix and MTV Games will be overseeing its full release of Pearl Jam's Backspacer through the Rock Band Music Store, as Pop prepares for some Stooges shows in London.
