Remember earlier in the month when we mentioned that the eleventh season of South Park on DVD would include three mystery Rock Band tracks? Well, the mystery has been solved and those songs are ... nothing, nothing at all. Yes, it seems a studio spokesperson has confirmed the three-tracks were not happening after all and that retailers actually had incorrect information.
If we could speculate for a second as to why. Considering South Park had an entire episode dedicated to Guitar Hero and that the concept art for the eleventh season DVD set shows Stan and Kyle rocking out to Guitar Hero-style controllers it's possible that the tracks were never intended for Rock Band but for ... you guessed it, Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. But why would a retail insider say Rock Band? Well, for the same reason your mother calls all your videogames Nintendo. They just don't know the difference.
The studio spokesperson did say new details on the set are coming soon, so stay tuned.

Umm maybe I dont remember the episode to well, but wasnt south park making fun of people that play guitar hero... Remember the "You Are Fags!" ending?

I think the real purpose of that episode was to poke fun at guitar hero with liscensing from Harmonix, so the Guitar Hero name would be getting bashed but without any harm to rock band. That's my theory.

Good. I hope the news is that the South Park tracks are actually on Guitar Hero not Rock Band.
I know everyone loves Rock Band and hates GH but Harmonix can suckle on my sweaty bollocks. This latest farce with the Euro exclusive tracks is just icing on the cake.
