How Rock Band DLC works

Buy individually or in packs.

MTV has confirmed that you will be able to buy individual downloadable songs from Artist Packs rather than buy the whole lot.

It also stamped its seal of approval on the leaked list of downloadable albums, which is due to be available after the game is released later this month in the US.

Unfortunately there is still no word on how much the Artist Packs or individual songs will cost, but we do know that Harmonix, MTV and EA are keen to offer new selections as regularly as every week.

According to 1UP, the first wave of downloadable content will look like this:

Artist Packs:

  • The Police: Roxanne, Synchronicty II, Can't Stand Losing You (masters)
  • Queens of the Stone Age: 3s and 7s, Sick Sick Sick, Little Sister (masters)
  • Metallica: Three-to-six song pack, no songs announced (TBA)
  • Black Sabbath: N.I.B, Sweet Leaf, War Pigs (covers)
  • David Bowie: Moonage Daydream, Heroes, Queen Bitch (TBA)
  • Punk Pack: The Buzzcocks' "Ever Fallen in Love," (cover) The Clash' "I Fought the Law," (master) The Ramones' "Rockaway Beach" (master)

Single Songs:

  • Credence Clearwater Revival: "Fortunate Son"
  • Foreigner: "Juke Box Hero"
  • The Knack: "My Sharona"
  • The Runaways: "Cherry Bomb"
  • T-Rex: "Bang a Gong"
  • Wolfmother: "Joker and the Thief"
  • Pretenders: "Brass in a Pocket"
  • Radiohead: "My Irong Lung"
  • Weezer: "Buddy Holly"

EA and MTV also recently unveiled an ever-so-nearly-complete track list for the game, which crawls out of the 1960s right up to the present day where we have computers and things.
