Confirmation of The Who DLC comes from the official press release announcing Rock Band 2, where they mention that twelve songs from The Who including "My Generation" and "Who Are You" will release to the XBLM for $1.99 a track (160 MS points) or as a bundled download for $19.99 (1600 MS points). Note though that The Who DLC will NOT be the entire Who's Next album but will instead be a compilation of twelve tracks. The reason being that (as rumored) they had troubles locating the master recordings of certain songs. No matter though, we're getting twelve tracks from The Who, so be happy!

So technically this isn't really Who's Next at all... it's more of a Who compilation? Oh well. I wonder what else they managed to get on it.
I can't remember what songs were on the lost masters either, personally.

Here's the Wiki for Who's Next. It contains the original track listings.

Well yeah, but the master for one side of the two sides. I forget which one it is, but I feel like it was side 1.
Who Are You and My Generation are from a different album entirely. So I don't know, I'm just wondering what else they've stuck in here to get 12 songs.

Gemini Ace should be happy. I know I'll be grabbing the pack. Great Job, Harmonix.

Actually, this is pretty cool. I always wanted to be able to play the CSI songs in Rock Band. :-p

Good call. Forgot about The Who doing the CSI themes. Does anyone know the song and show for each one?

all i can say is that Pinball Wizard better freaking be available.

If there is no Pinball wizard in this I am not buying it! Pinball Wizard or bust!!! Who are you would be nice too.

Great, we get white British guys playing "Maximum R&B" but still no actual R&B...

Is it just me, or does the monolith in that picture bear a striking resemblance to a certain white console?

~but i am a little disappointed, we have been promised a Who's Next album since Rock Band was introduced over a year ago! Too bad they just went half-ass but its better than nothing...

If HMX went half-assed, we wouldn't have received any of The Who. HMX teamed up with The Who to deliver a 'best of' pack since some of the masters went missing. It was a good move if you ask me.

dont get me wrong... i have been waiting for this for a long time; this was just the first I heard of the replaced tracks and I am let down. I am still a buyer!!

i've been saying for ages to my mates their should be some more Who on her and finally we're getting some now all we need is some of The Beatles and Queen.
