  • Fleat says:

    Wow. This would be amazing. Remember all the covers found in the DLC web folder. Stands to reason that we’re getting a big Marley pack eventually even if this isn’t true. I thought it would be after RB3.

  • Travis says:

    Whoa! This would be awesome.

  • Whizzer says:

    So, before Rock Band 3, eh? I imagine people will want the Pro upgrades and keys support now.

    I’m not a fan, so I don’t mind, but I can imagine what I’d feel like if this happened to a different album of a different artist.

    • Xanadu says:

      Couldn’t agree more. If Harmonix releases any Rush before the addition of pro-mode DLC I won’t be very happy.

    • Fleat says:

      Any chance they are charting DLC with pro support and not telling us?

      • SebastianSB says:

        Pro DLC doesn’t work in RB2, so no.

        • MaximusDM says:

          But they have claimed to have a solution for upgrading legacy DLC to RB3 feature support. So I’m pretty sure Fleat was referring to possibility that Harmonix could be making ALL the charts for Rock Band 3 and then retrofitting it to work as legacy DLC.

          Which is what I would personally be doing at this point. But that is really Harmonix’s decision. Obviously this is just refering to harmonies and key/pro keys since pro guitar/bass is a whole other beast.

          • SebastianSB says:

            He didn’t word it that way at all, so I assume otherwise.

            Why not guitar? I don’t understand the logic where you think they’d be charting pro stuff in the background but then leave an entire facet of it out.

    • BathTub says:

      I really hope HMX are going to surprise us that a lot of the DLC in the run up to RB3 is RB3 ready, as this is just going to get worse and worse in the weeks running up to release. Can you imagine if the DLC like the week before release was another Hendrix album, or Metallica?

    • Aw says:

      I AM a fan so I DO mind. Not so much for pro-guitar/bass support (reggae isn’t very technically demanding for guitar), but for keys support. I’m Jamaican and I grew up on these songs. They deserve the best.

      • Dorkmaster Flek says:

        I’m with Aw on this one. What are they doing releasing obvious keyboard heavy DLC a month before RB3 releases? Not only that, but it’s the entire album of a song that is on-disc already. We’ll have one song on the album upgraded on day one. What’s the deal here? This is really bad timing for this album if they’re not planning on upgrading it.

        • chas says:

          I’d assume Get Up, Stand Up wouldn’t be included, similarly to how they did “full albums” after RB2 came out that were missing a song that was on disc. (Blood Sugar Sex Magick without Give it Away; The Colour and the Shape without Everlong; etc.)

          As for hidden RB3 features, I suspected this when Jesus Built My Hotrod came out a few weeks ago and the keyboard part of the song (which you can barely hear on the album) seemed very loud in comparrison to the guitar. That being said, I think they said RB3 DLC would be “different enough” that RB2 wouldn’t recognize it.

          • Sorixas says:

            See, what I’m hoping Harmonix is doing is programming the songs like Green Day: Rock Band. It’s treated as RB2 DLC, but underneath, it has coding for harmonies and Pro-guitar/bass/keyboard.

          • Sorixas says:

            Uh, nevermind, I just remembered what Dan Teasdale said. It’s sad, though. They’re releasing an influx of songs with keyboards… with no keyboards.

    • Masem says:

      I can only speculate, but I’ve mentioned at the rockband.com forums that HMX has hinted enough that RB3 can automatically bring in updated versions of existing DLC when the upgraded versions are put out to the console’s storefront. Also, authoring RB3 tracks and then reducing down to an RB2 compatible track should be trivial based on all we’ve heard. It could be completely possible that all this DLC for the last few months have been based on the steams built for RB3, while we’re getting the RB2 version, and as soon as RB3 is out, bam, the RB3-built versions are put out and automatically downloaded.

  • EternalDarkness1 says:

    This is true

  • Yanulevich says:

    Marley fans rejoice! We have won our album dlc!

  • James! says:

    I’m a fan of Bob Marley but I don’t they’ll be that fun save for the vocals.

  • HeyRiles says:

    Not sure if it matters, but this poster broke the news nine hours previous to ScoreHero, I think


  • Shawn says:

    Easy Skankin, my favorite Marley song…yes, I listened to it a ton in my college days. Not so much, since.

  • SteveMightSay says:


    Here’s some proof crappy quality but you can make out a few of the songs

  • skydog says:

    I’ll pass on this.. but I know a lot of people will enjoy this.. never was a Marley fan.

  • Game!Ov3r says:

    Jamming…. SWEET!

  • River 0tter says:

    Most excellent. These should make great stoner party songs

  • Nick says:

    if true, i cant wait to play could you be loved

  • Xzyliac says:

    Okay, if this is true I’m automatically assuming Legacy DLC past a certain point is gonna get upgraded or something. Because that…that doesn’t make any sense otherwise.

  • Saeglopur says:

    This will be totally awesome!! And maybe it even has keyboard in it, and it will be there when you start RB3. ^^

  • Folkeye says:

    I’m not a huge Marley fan, but I’d grab a few of these.

  • The Psycho says:

    Awesome news, but would have been even better if “Iron Lion Zion” was included.

  • gordofredito says:

    I must sing “Three Little Birds”

  • The Witticus says:

    I can’t think of “Buffalo Soldiers” without thinking of an episode of South Park. But this is truly epic DLC!

  • Triforce179 says:

    I GOT ONTO ROCK BAND AIDE?!?!? My life is complete!!

  • Dark Reality says:

    First, weren’t we supposed to get Linkin Park next week? These ambitious rumors seem to be real hit and miss.

    Second, awesomeness detection. That’s how reliable Harmonix’s word is. Not calling them liars, just saying I’m not putting red herrings past them. You know, since they’ve done it before. Now we are getting songs with keyboards and harmonies in them prior to RB3. Could be Teasdale’s right, but if he is, Harmonix aren’t nearly as smart as we give them credit for.

  • MCA76 says:

    This is great news!! But no harmonies and no pro mode does suck:(

  • Alex H says:

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Easy Skanking and Punk Reggae Party were bonus tracks on the cassette release and the 2002 reissue, and thus likely will not be part of this DLC. You can see in the screenshot, too, that the song listed below Stir It Up is far too long to be Easy Skanking, and it likely One Love/People Get Ready.

    • cherokeesam says:

      That’s not bad news at all…

      This is most likely the original 1984 release, and will feature Exodus and Jamming instead. Jamming, in particular, is a much better song — Stevie Wonder did a great cover of it, too.

  • sduk72 says:

    its certainly a million times better than som of the DLC of late…a sign of things to come???
    maybe i will forgive them for banning me for saying i didnt like the snoop dog DLC…Oh and im sure ALL the DLC of late has the RB3 functions built in so i wouldnt worry about the pro mode etc… i doubt they are that silly… but then they got MTV backing them so who knows.

  • yasmanian says:

    hoping that hmx still have a few surprises up their sleeves, namely that the recent dlc can be updated after rb3 is out with the new features (maybe for an additional fee if the dlc price is going up to implement the new modes).
