1. rickroll 2601 up, 312 down
To post a misleading link with a subject that promises to be exciting or interesting, e.g. "World of Starcraft in-game footage!" but actually turns out to be the video for Rick Astley's debut single, "Never Gonna Give You Up". A variant on the duckroll. Allegedly hilarious.

2. Rickroll 1351 up, 410 down
When you're looking for something interesting on youtube, and someone sends you a link, it's usually the video to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up"
You just got Rickrolled

Of course it's that song! Don't be silly.

It's a good way to keep things in perspective. We're into Rockband, we're serious about it, and we assume the world shares our views. In reality we are a tiny niche group of enthusiasts who are easily rolled over by a two year old meme. And there's nothing wrong with that!

I'm excited by this . The past few months have given me a LOT of highly requested cheese: We Built This City, Head Over Heels, the Hall & Oates pack, and now RickRoll

Along with some other songs I actually requested (Have You Ever Seen The Rain, Machinehead, All Along the Watchtower), I feel I'm on a streak, so I just submitted a few more that hopefully we can get soon: Steely Dan: Reelin' In The Years, Blue Oyster Cult: Burnin' For You, and A Perfect Circle: 3 Libras

DocsRockBandMods.com is live, and I found this notice there. DocsRockBandMods.net gets you to a dead domain kind of site--the "Modding Forum" link at the top of the .com site is that same URL, but the one at the bottom of the page leads to that note.

DLC Week of 2/21 - Megadeth 3 Pack! Symphony of Destruction w/ Pro & more!
Hey gang,

For close to 30 years thrash metal pioneers Megadeth have wowed listeners with their brutal yet melodic sound, recording a number of platinum records and selling out arenas worldwide. On February 21st, “Megadeth Pack 01” brings three of the band’s tracks to the Rock Band Music Store.

1992’s Countdown to Extinction was an instant hit, debuting at #2 on the Billboard charts, thanks in part to the strong single “Symphony of Destruction,” the first track in this three pack of headbangers. The second track in the pack is “À Tout le Monde,” from Megadeth’s sixth studio album, 1994’s Youthanasia. This collection is rounded out by “Public Enemy No. 1” from the band’s latest record, 2011’s TH1RT3EN.

"This is an awesome game and fans get to play a cross-section of our best songs ever," said Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine. "I am going to have to learn my songs all over again!"

These three tracks add to an ever-growing library of Megadeth’s music that's playable in Rock Band; their classic records Peace Sells… but Who’s Buying? and Rust in Peace are also available for download in their entirety on the Rock Band Music Store. The band is currently touring North America, headlining the traveling festival Gigantour alongside Motörhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil.

Available on Xbox 360, Wii™ and PlayStation®3 system (February 21st, 2012):

• Megadeth - "Symphony of Destruction" X
• Megadeth - "À Tout le Monde"
• Megadeth - "Public Enemy No. 1"

(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system February 22nd)

Tracks marked with “X” will offer Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.

Price:

$5.49, £2.49 UK, €3.99 EU (440 Microsoft Points, 550 Wii Points™) for “Megadeth Pack 01”
$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points, 200 Wii Points™) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points™/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, €0.79 EU per song for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade

** Dates for Rock Band game tracks are tentative and subject to change. **

2 out of three already available in Rocksmith, including the one with pro guitar charts.

I wonder how close they are chart wise. If you learn it in one you should be able to play it in the other, right?

Is anyone here running Rock Band on a Samsung PN##D550 plasma? I've got one and am looking to confirm some autocalibration lag results in regards to Game Mode or PC labeling on the display.

Thanks!

RS usually has 2 or 3 arrangements available for each song, with varying amounts of rhythm. I just thought that it was interesting to make the comparison in that fashion.

That pack is definitely an instant buy. Perfect for the RB party crowd.

I've started getting a disc read error on my RB3 disc. Can't find it on sale for $19 anymore. Friends tell me you can download it for $19 but I guess because I have it installed to my hard drive it doesn't give me the option to buy it in the market place. Has anyone downloaded it? Do I need to uninstall the game from my hard drive before it gives me the option to download the game for $19? Don't want to have to download 500 songs again. Any suggestions?

Edit... Once I uninstalled the game the option to download it came up....all is good now

Of the three bands, I'm only familiar with (and a fan of) Everclear; I don't know that song but it sounds typical of their work (EDIT: it's from their first album--I got on the bus with their second, So Much for the Afterglow). Good Charlotte's "Girls & Boys" was on-disc in Lego and I like that so I'll give that song some consideration. The band name Mastadon has hugely negative connotations for me--it smacks of metal, nearly all types of which I detest, though I've liked the occasional song. I try to listen to at least a few seconds of every new song before rejecting it .

Its been a while since I worked on career mode. I've been stuck on Break On Through pro-bass hard for a long time. In fact I was no where close to getting the required 3*

Finally beat it yesterday, so happy!!!

Everclear's first album Sparkle and Fade is great.

If you look at the list of XBL Marketplace Games on Demand sorted by "Best selling all-time" (here) Rock Band 3 comes up as #2 in the list, behind the freeby Rock Band Music Store, followed by Halo 3 and Halo Reach. It's only been available for 2.5 months, versus Halo 3's nearly 2 years.

I only noticed this because I brought up the list to sort it by release date, to see what had been offered most recently. The default sort was "Best selling today" and RB3 was 2nd on the list behind Madden NFL 12 so I thought I'd see where it stood all-time. If this isn't some kind of mistake, color me surprised .

I created a thread for this topic at RockBand.com, here, but I thought I'd mention it here for those who don't participate there.
