Sure… I leave the office for a few hours and there’s a Rock Band DLC leak! Anyway, looks like the metalheads over at MetalUnderground.com got a jump start on next week’s DLC, which as you can see by the title, is Judas Priest’s live album “British Steel.” Next week is the 30th anniversary of the album, and the release of the DLC coincides with its re-release. The full track listing is below, as well as the album for your listening enjoyment:

Now that there are over 1,400 songs available for Rock Band, what does everybody use to track their Rock Band library, if anything at all? I know there are a number of options available: websites, iPhone apps, Excel, etc. I was using some leaderboard sites, but those only work if you have scores for all your songs, and I’ll have to admit that some weeks, I purchase DLC online and never get around to playing the songs until several days or weeks later.
Sound off in the comments and on what everyone likes the best and I’ll try and highlight some of the more popular options.
It’s been a few days since the last RBN updated, due to “pipeline issues,” per Harmonix. There are a few more that have been approved that have not yet been released, so expect another handful in tomorrow’s post.

Spinner.com is reporting that B-52′s frontman Fred Schneider apparently is no good at covering himself in Rock Band. Per Spinner, Fred commented:
“I sang ‘Love Shack’ and got booed off the stage. I was like, ‘Well, screw this.’”
“We had a wedding party, and I walked by and they were paying ‘Love Shack. They wanted me to sing with them.”
Now, I’m no big fan of the B-52′s, but if you’re like me, you would have noticed if “Love Shack” came to Rock Band as DLC… which it hasn’t!
So what does that mean? My first instinct was “OMG, ‘Love Shack’ coming as DLC,” but I’m not so sure this is the case. If he was playing on a dev kit, this would be possible, but doubtful at a wedding. My second thought was “He must have been singing ‘Roam,’ which IS in Rock Band,” but most of the vocals in this song are by Kate Pierson. So where does that leave us? I doubt he was singing in Rock Band. He was probably singing the recently released Lips: Party Classics game, which DOES feature “Love Shack.”
