E3: Weekly DLC Planned for Rock Band

MTV Games and Harmonix have revealed their plans to release weekly download content for EA-published Rock Band, introducing new full-length albums to the game. The first album for download will be The Who’s Who’s Next, which MTV Games says will be available soon after the game’s release. As a refresher for those who haven’t dusted off the vinyl in a while, the album sports the following Townsend-iffic tracks: 1."Baba O’Riley" 2."Bargain" 3."Love Ain’t for Keepin’" 4."My Wife (Entwistle)" 5."The Song Is Over" 6."Getting in Tune" 7."Going Movile" 8."Behind Blue Eyes" 9."Won’t Get Fooled Again" "Offering entire albums for play on the Rock Band platform is a monumental step forward in Harmonix’s ever present quest to provide new ways for people to interact with music and creating the most authentic music experience possible," stated Alex Rigopulos, co-founder and CEO, Harmonix. "This will give players the opportunity to play through the entire album set list of arguably some of the most influential rock albums of all time and brings them one step closer to what it feels like to be a true rock star." The trio of games companies also revealed the first 16 licensed tracks you won’t have to download (i.e. they’re shipping with the game). Here they are via the magic of Ctrl + V: 1970s The Who "Won’t Get Fooled Again" Mountain "Mississippi Queen"* David Bowie "Suffragette City" Black Sabbath "Paranoid"* Blue Oyster Cult "Don’t Fear the Reaper" The Ramones "Rockaway Beach" 1980s Rush "Tom Sawyer"* Bon Jovi "Wanted Dead or Alive" 1990s Nirvana "In Bloom" Stone Temple Pilots "Vasoline" Weezer "Say It Ain’t So" Foo Fighters "Learn to Fly" Metallica "Enter Sandman" 2000s The Hives "Main Offender" The Strokes "Reptilia" Queens of the Stone Age "Go With the Flow" Great stuff then. According to MTV, Rock Band is still on track - peripherals and all - for a Christmas release on Xbox 360.
