I could have sworn How You Remind Me was already on Rock Band. But I could have also sworn they said music games sucked and wouldn't ever be in them either.

I never could get into them but I hear Jerry Sandusky is a real big fan.

edit: oh, i see what you are saying. TAoRDM was released recently without pro, good catch.

"By the Way" was in that "I'm With the Chili Peppers" pack as well.

I think that you're right, NoThru22--this probably is the first time they've issued a pro upgrade for post-RB3 DLC after it was released. I'm sure there's lots of chatter about that on the RB forums . Nice to see that it's something that they might do.

They were already in RB with a pack of 6 released pre-RB3 on 6/29/10. We discussed it for a while in this thread (here) at which time you also mentioned them saying that they hated music games and would never be in them .

I know, I guess I thought their mega-big single was in that 6 pack. I actually thought they had 2 packs by now.

Awesome way to slip in a Sandusky reference. That type of punchline is going to be a gift that keeps on giving for at least a year.

I was checking out the "Setlist Checklist" feature on RockBandAide, and goddamn that "Guitar Hero Rocks the 80s" PS2 exclusive has a kick-ass soundtrack.

It really sucked they didn't put that out for 360 after give us a taste of the genre with GH2.

"Gh2" and "GH2 Rocks the 80s" both had great set lists. There are so many songs in both that i would love in RB.
post #12009 of 12395
There are dozens of songs from the GH series that I would love to have also. Maybe we will see them on DLC someday. It's probably all tied up legally though.

Most of the songs were covers back then, so I'm sure the licensing was a lot easier. I don't know exactly how it works, but they probably only had to license the song from the copyright holder for a cover versus copyright, performers, and performance label/studio for a "master track".

Correct, you only need to license from the publisher, not from the artist (which are not always the same.) In fact, you can't even copyright a style! Take for a example, the version of Train Kept a Rollin in Rock Band 1: Tiny Bradshaw and a few others wrote that song in 1951 and Aerosmith licensed the rights and did a cover of it in 1974. Aerosmith never wanted to be in the game Rock Band, so Harmonix only had to license the rights from Tiny Bradshaw (or whoever currently owns the rights) and then they could have the cover band do it in the style of Aerosmith and Steven Tyler without paying them a dime. That kind of blows my mind a little.

Oh, I forgot that so many were "as made famous by".

I just picked up the A.c./dc track pack disc for $4, can't go wrong at that price.
post #12017 of 12395
I'm hosting a Rock Band 3 Endless Setlist party this Saturday... just wondered if doing the 'all instruments mode' for the setlist makes it a permanent 'music video' background with the '5-4-3-2-1' countdown and crazy effects for every song. If so, I'm thinking of dropping a bass player so we can just get a normal concert background.

Has anyone done the Endless with all 7 playing? I know the game lets you see the stats between each song now; can instruments also drop in-and-out as the setlist goes on? I guess I can tinker with it when I'm back home Saturday, but was hoping some AVS folks could drop some knowledge earlier than that.

Not sure if I'll buy the whole pack but some of these are very long awaited. Don't Stop Me Now and Stone Cold Crazy in particular.
post #12020 of 12395
Vid!



Yeah I might cherry pick but even then I'll be getting five or so songs. Before I'd always get packs just to get the extra song or two at a discount, but at over 1,500 songs, perhaps I'm regretting that philosophy.
post #12021 of 12395
That's a lot of Queen in this game now!

Not a complaint...
post #12022 of 12395
Not being an omnivorous Queen fan--love the big radio hits--I'm not in for the whole pack. I'll take "You're My Best Friend", "The Show Must Go On", "Radio Ga Ga" (one I'm most looking forward to) and "Bicycle Race". None of the others ever impressed me before and still don't upon listening to them just now, but I might get "Long Away".

All I'm missing now is "A Kind of Magic" and "These Are the Days of Our Lives" .

Yeah, mostly due to my limited play time, I've been going only with the tracks that have pro guitar. But there has to be an exception for epic packs. Queen and Rush 2112 are definitely epic.
post #12024 of 12395
I'm all in for the new Queen pack. All the songs are good.

One thing that concerns me now though is that pretty much all of Queen's big hits are now on the RB roster. So, I hope this won't be the last release because there are still some tracks we need

Brighton Rock (I think they should release the whole "Sheer Heart Attack" album though
Death on Two Legs
'39
Sheer Heart Attack
Spread Your Wings
It's Late
Let Me Entertain You
Dead on Time
Dragon Attack
A Kind of Magic
post #12025 of 12395
Hah, Dragon Attack, I almost forgot about that one!

Funny, I'm not a huge Queen fan but Brian May was an amazing guitarist on some of those songs.

The official blurb on rockband.com says "These three tracks are just the tip of the iceberg for Rush fans; we'll have even more exciting Rush/Rock Band news before the year's out, so stay tuned!"

Sounds like it's coming, and soon!

Stone Cold Crazy is tons of fun on medium pro-guitar and hard pro-bass. Highly recommended.

I'm also working on Johnny Cash's "Walk the Line" and "Tennessee Flat Top Box" pro-bass. The charts are easy enough that I can play on expert, so that is fun.
