Rock Band DLC, Week of 26 July 2011

Coming in late today, but with some good news. Or potentially anyway, depending on how much you enjoy progressive as a genre and/or this week’s artist specifically. As though repenting for last week’s keyless options, Harmonix more than makes up for it with a five-pack of Yes.   The Songs * Yes – “Heart of the Sunrise” * Yes – “I’ve Seen All Good People” + * Yes – “Owner of a Lonely Heart” + […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 19 July 2011

Harmonix has been talking about this batch of DLC for a couple weeks now, so the only real surprise is how many pro charts are available this week (four total, one legacy). It’s a pretty simple test to gauge your excitement level about the DLC. Do you like Soundgarden? If so, congratulations! If not, tune in next week because that’s all we have.   The Songs * Soundgarden – “Blow Up the Outside World” * […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 12 July 2011

Another singles week coming for DLC. These are overall my favourite weeks – so many different kinds of songs, and my musical tastes typically run broad enough to snag me several tracks. This is a pretty slim week overall, but with a 50% “get” ratio, I can’t complain.     The Songs * Erasure – “A Little Respect” * Frankie Goes to Hollywood – “Relax (Come Fighting)” * P.O.D. – “Boom” + * P.O.D. – […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 5 July 2011

Singles singles singles, that’s what we have this week. Three that are pretty awesome additions, and two from the band that I detest more than any other musical act in the history of human existence. So that’s a thing. But the rest? Awesome!     The Songs * Buffalo Springfield – “For What It’s Worth” + * R.E.M. – “Man On the Moon” * System of a Down – “Aerials” + * System of a […]

And lo, there was new DLC, and Jet Wolf was pleased, for long had she wanted Poison, and now it had arrived. (And also 3 Doors Down, but LEGO already gave me the only song by them I know.) Poison!   The Songs * 3 Doors Down – “Here Without You” * 3 Doors Down – “When I’m Gone” + * 3 Doors Down – “When You’re Young” * Poison – “Nothin’ but a Good […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 21 June 2011

A fairly sedate week of DLC, at least for me and my tastes. It’s always nice to see bundles from bands at differing ends of the music spectrum though, even if nothing can ever possibly hope to beat the brilliance that was the Disturbed/Jimmy Buffet week. Coming our way will be three-packs from hard rockers Puddle of Mudd and pop superstars Maroon 5.   The Songs * Maroon 5 – “Misery” * Maroon 5 – […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 14 June 2011

Some fun, fun DLC this week, running the gamut from 80s pop to to 00s metal. Guess which I’m more excited about. – A-Ha – “Take On Me” + – Avenged Sevenfold – “Unholy Confessions” + – Avenged Sevenfold – “Welcome to the Family” – Chumbawamba – “Tubthumping” – Live – “I Alone” + – Live – “Lightning Crashes” + = pro-guitar/bass chart available It almost seems ludicrous to give up any opinion other than […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 7 June 2011

A pretty straightforward week of DLC, but it’s still nice to be back to the weekly unknown; a chunk of DLC announced ahead of time is always cool for the first minute but drags the hell out of the month. And hey, E3 next week! Harmonix have been hinting they have something to announce and we know it’s not Rock Band 4. Another major artist on the way? Excited to find out. But before then […]

Next week is all Ozzy Ozzy Ozzy, in a pack timed for the release of his two classic albums, Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. But it’s a little different than usual. Check the track list, then we’ll talk. – “Diary of a Madman” – “Flying High Again” – “I Don’t Know” – “Mr. Crowley” + – “Over the Mountain” – “Steal Away (The Night)” – “Bark at the Moon” + ** – […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 23 May 2011

For the second week in a row we have a non-typical date for the new Rock Band DLC. Last week it was server migration. This week, it’s to coincide with Lady Gaga’s new album. Which, as you might expect, means we’re getting Gaga, and we’re getting it on Monday. * Lady Gaga – “Born This Way” * Lady Gaga – “LoveGame” * Lady Gaga – “Paparazzi” * Foreigner – “Hot Blooded” + * Foreigner – […]
