Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Mozart & more coming to Fantasia!

If you’ve been on Twitter for the past couple weeks, you might know that Harmonix have been at PAX East with their upcoming game Fantasia: Music Evolved. What you might not have seen, though, is that the demo they brought with them seems to have included 5 unannounced songs, and as seems to be the case with the Fantasia setlist as a whole, they’re super varied. From more modern pop, to great classics, there continues to be something for everyone in here!

Journey Leaving the Music Store (UPDATE)

journey-2

And here we thought we were safe! Unfortunately, it was announced tonight on the livestream that Journey’s classic Don’t Stop Believing will be removed from the music store on April 30th, 2014. While I suppose we all might have seen it coming, what with Any Way You Want It not exporting from Rock Band 2, it’s a shame nonetheless to see tracks leave the music store. If you haven’t picked it up yet, I strongly recommend it. It’s just one of those songs that every player should have! Plus, it’s a dollar now. You owe it to yourself to pick it up.

Song leaving the music store on April 30th:

  • Journey – Don’t Stop Believing

UPDATE: Well, it looks like there’s one more bit of relicensing info. The offer for free 20 song DLC pack bundled with new copies of Rock Band 2 has expired, and as such, the package can’t be redeemed anymore.

Songs that are no longer available to download:

  • The 88 – Sons and Daughters
  • Authority Zero – No Regrets
  • Between the Buried and Me – Prequel to the Sequel
  • The Cab – Bounce
  • The Chevelles – Get It On
  • The Cocktail Sippers – Give It to Me
  • Dealership – Database Corrupted
  • Endeverafter – I Wanna Be Your Man
  • Ghost Hounds – Ashes to Fire
  • Hollywood Undead – Young
  • Kutless – The Feeling
  • The Len Price 3 – If I Ain’t Got You
  • Lesley Roy – I’m Gone, I’m Going
  • Opiate for the Masses – Burn You Down
  • Semi-Precious Weapons – Magnetic Baby
  • Shaimus – Like a Fool
  • Thenewno2 – Crazy Tuesday
  • Tickle Me Pink – The Time is Wrong
  • Underoath – Desperate Times, Desperate Measures
  • X Japan – I.V.
