Country music is coming to Rock Band

After staying true to their rock music selection roots (for the most part), the Harmonix crew is looking to expand their music offerings and bring a new twang to the Rock Band DLC library. That's right, according to HMXHenry, the sweet twang of country music will be headed to a Rock Band DLC music store near you.

"We'll have Country in RB sooner or later" says Mr. HMXHenry, "why would the addition of Country be such a huge shock?" Well, HMXHenry, one could argue that country music is a shocking addition seeing that the your gaming platform is called ROCK Band, but we say bring on the country. One can never get enough music that's all about cowboy boots, booze and tragic love stories.

Rock Band USB hub starts electrical fire

Blogger at THEBBPS Jim Squires was in for a rude awakening while playing Rock Band when the included 4-port USB hub began fuming during a 10-minute play session. Playing with four instruments connected and plugged into an open wall outlet the device began to smoke as the wires burnt through the casing. Upon notifying the EA Support site of the situation Squires received a form letter -- which is basically an automated response -- urging him to plug the unit in and try again.

"Congratulations EA, your form letter just killed me," Squires wrote in his story about the problem. A second reply pointed Squires to an automated replacement site ignoring his request for information regarding the electrical fire. Let's hope that warranty isn't expired otherwise he may be forced to pay for the luxury of another blaze.

Rock Band DLC: Nirvana seven pack

A Nirvana pack of DLC consisting of seven master recording will be value priced at 800 Microsoft points or purchasable individually for 160 points. No more speculation, Nirvana is coming to Rock Band next week!
  • "Breed" by Nirvana
  • "Lounge Act" by Nirvana
  • "On a Plain" by Nirvana
  • "Polly" by Nirvana
  • "Something in the Way" by Nirvana
  • "Stay Away" by Nirvana
  • "Territorial Pissings" by Nirvana

Rock Band 2 AC/DC achievements add 250GS

Achievements for the Walmart exclusive expansion Rock Band 2: AC/DC Live have made their way onto the internet and we now know that the game is being treated as an all out expansion as far as achievements go.

AC/DC Live will only add twelve new achievements (viewable after the jump) worth 250 Gamerscore, which is the maximum Gamerscore a game expansion can offer. Interesting is the fact that the achievements do not all pertain to the AC/DC Live songs, as some actually refer to purchasable DLC. So, Rock Band 2 owners will be receiving a few more achievement challenges without an AC/DC Live purchase.

Rock Band 'Dr. Feelgood' album DLC now available

Rock Band receives new DLC, now with Offspring [update 2]

Update 2: The long lost Offspring DLC is now available for purchase off the XBLM. Celebratory "HUZZAH!" Original article viewable below.

According to the Harmonix crew, the Offspring tracks should be available, so it looks like it's an error on Microsoft's side. Still waiting for answers ...

It's Rock Band DLC Tuesday today, and that means all the new musical DLC that was announced last Friday releases today. Or so that's how it usually goes, today is the exception though, because the Offspring tracks have gone missing.

For whatever reason, only six of the promised nine Rock Band DLC tracks are available for purchase off the XBLM. The six tracks from bands including Against Me!, Free, George Thorogood, Harvey Danger, Screaming Trees and Static-X are all available, but the highly anticipated Offspring three pack is nowhere to be found. And we aren't exactly sure why they aren't available, because both Major Nelson and Harmonix are nowhere to be found. Let's just hope that there's a bug in the system and all nine tracks release later today, because denying us our Offspring is NOT a way to make friends.

Continue reading Rock Band receives new DLC, now with Offspring [update 2] updated, order custom merch

Earlier today, received a major website renovation that has added new functionality, new information and a much sleeker Rock Band presentation. (beta) is more feature-rich than ever, allowing gamers to browse and get information on every RB song, browse the improved forums, check out your stats, and create real-life custom merchandise including figures, tees and posters. Get learned about all the new features here and exercise patience, because the site is in beta and occasional hiccups are to be expected.

Rock Band 2 bug erases your band without mercy

The Rock Band 2 forums have been buzzing in anger for the past few weeks in regards to a game bug that erases your entire band.

Briefly, the bug seems to be affecting 360 copies of Rock Band 2 where the primary band member has a Live enabled account and another band member is rockin' out without any Live membership. Then, for no reason and usually further into the game, the bug glitches and deletes your entire band and all of its progress. Major, major bummer. Harmonix hasn't acknowledged or addressed the problem yet, so we have no clue when or if a patch will be released. For the time being, we recommend playing Band World Tour with all Live enabled or all non Live enabled accounts. Please, rock out carefully.

AC/DC pack will include unique achievements

When the AC/DC standalone expansion disc was announced for Rock Band 2 we silently wondered, since the pack is its own title will it have its own achievements? The answer is yes.

According to the Rock Band forums, one of the Harmonix developers has confirmed the AC/DC pack will include its own achievement list. HMXHenry wrote: "There will be unique Achievements and Trophies for the AC/DC Track Pack, as well as several that are song specific."

Now the question remains, will it add a gamerscore to Rock Band 2 during transfer or will the achievements only be available while playing from the AC/DC disc? We'll update you as more details are released.

[Thanks, HazyCloud]

Rumor: Crüe's "Dr. Feelgood" album lands as Rock Band DLC Oct. 14

According to a post on, Mötley Crüe's 1989 album Dr. Feelgood is being prepped as the latest album for Rock Band, set to release on October 14. No price for the album is listed but the standard $2 per track seems most likely if the information is accurate.

While the information seems plausible, we're waiting on confirmation from Harmonix before we throw confetti in celebration. Our sister site Joystiq has contacted the developer on the matter and we'll keep you informed of any updates.

Rock Band DLC: Offspring three pack and six others

Next week's Rock Band downloadable content was just announced by the Harmonix crew and, well, we're in for a treat!

On October 7th, there will be an Offspring three-pack released and it actually includes GOOD Offspring tracks like "Self Esteem", "Gone Away" and "Pretty Fly". The pack is 440 MS points or each song can be purchased individually for 160 points. On top of the Offspring DLC goodness are six other tracks from bands including George Thorogood ("Bad to the Bone" FTW!), Harvey Danger, Static-X, Free and more. Each will cost 160 MS points apiece. Check the complete listing of next week's Rock Band DLC below and be sure to support the Offspring.
  • "Gone Away" by Offspring
  • "Pretty Fly" by Offspring
  • "Self Esteem" by Offspring
  • "Stop!" by Against Me!
  • "All Right Now" by Free
  • "Bad to the Bone" by George Thorogood
  • "Cream & Bastards Rise" by Harvey Danger
  • "Nearly Lost You" by Screaming Trees
  • "Push It" by Static-X

Rock Band's AC/DC package comes complete with fine print

Some of the fine print for Rock Band's upcoming AC/DC track package has been clarified thanks to a report by Variety. What we can now confirm is the 18 song pack will be a standalone product that can be played by itself or transferred to an Xbox 360 and act as downloadable content for Rock Band or Rock Band 2.

The standalone version will feature most, but not all, of the features found in both Rock Band titles. Players can play all four instruments (vocals, guitar, bass and drums), will not play as AC/DC themselves but as standard in game avatars because the product features no character customization. Players can participate in a tour style mode which plays through the entire set list, participate in tug-of-war and a score duels mode but the disc itself does not support online play.

In order to get online with the AC/DC tracks players must transfer the songs to their hard drive, as was required to play Rock Band songs in Rock Band 2 - which also opens up other restrictions such as character customization. Where things get hairy is that transferring the package can only be activated "once per disc," to prevent players from buying one copy and sharing the music with other machines.

The information was parsed from Paul DeGooyer, senior VP of electronic games and music at MTV who also stated the AC/DC tracks were only exclusive to Rock Band for "a term."

AC/DC Rock Band expansion exclusively releases to Walmart this holiday

Harmonix and MTV Games just made an announcement this morning regarding the release of a special edition of Rock Band. This "expansion" of sorts will be releasing this holiday EXCLUSIVELY at Walmart stores and it's called AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band Track Pack. So, yes, the rumor was true.

This new AC/DC themed edition of Rock Band will include 18 AC/DC songs that were pulled from their "Live at Donington" DVD and will retail for $39 at, again, Walmart stores. The game will ship to North American retailers in November and to our friends in Europe and Australia in November.

Interesting too is the fact that this retail AC/DC Rock Band edition is being called a track pack yet the game's description reads it's a "fully-featured, standalone extension" of Rock Band and Rock Band 2. But the game also comes packaged with a keycode to download the songs straight to your HDD and import the 18 tracks into your current Rock Band setlist. Speaking of setlists, check out the 18 AC/DC tracks that'll be included in the AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band Track Pack after the break. Oh, and uh ... hurray for Walmart?
