DLC for 6/29

No witty repartee today… just some Nickelback DLC for next week…

  • Nickelback – Burn It to the Ground
  • Nickelback – Figured You Out
  • Nickelback – Never Again
  • Nickelback – Photograph
  • Nickelback – Rockstar
  • Nickelback – This Afternoon

I’m REALLY hoping that in my defending of Miley Cyrus as DLC last week that I didn’t say something like “Well, at least it’s not Nickelback.”

Where the Party At?! Sony Showing Additional Miley Cyrus DLC Song

Not sure if we’ve beat this Miley Cyrus DLC issue to death yet, but as a big “non-fan” of hers, I have to admit that like many of you I have at heard and am somewhat familiar with her “hit” “Party in the U.S.A.,” mostly due to the large flash mob at nearby Marquette University. But I have to admit that I was surprised when I didn’t see the track listed among the other DLC songs of hers. Once I saw it missing, my fear was that it was going to be on the Rock Band 3 disc (and it still may), but a few rumors have been popping up that it should have been DLC.

I first from @TheChrisGlass that using a hack to view the Xbox 360 Miley Cyrus DLC pack, you can see that “Party in the U.S.A.” should have been included.

Now @toymachinesh has pointed out a link on the official Playstation site that “Party in the U.S.A.” was clearly supposed to be part of the track pack, or at least available for download.

UPDATE: @BillTVShow sent me the link to the thread over at Scorehero where “rastabot1″ was able to purchase the DLC pack in its entirety with “Party in the U.S.A.” (also officially listed in the PS3 pack here), as well as post a video of the song in-game! I checked, and this is DEFINITELY different than the custom Miley song from awhile back.

Is it possible that it was pulled from the pack to add to Rock Band 3? Would this change your impression of Rock Band 3 (“OMG, I’m totally not buying RB3 becuz of this!!1!”)? And should we stop reporting on Miley Cyrus now?

This Mom is a Real Rock Band Buff!

Most bloggers wouldn’t waste an opportunity such as this to make a classless “Yo Momma” joke, and far be it from me to break the trend:

“Yo momma is so bad at Rock Band, she has to take off all her clothes when she plays! “

OK, apparently I’m no good at “Yo Momma” jokes, but it does accurately describe the somewhat NSFW-ish video after the break.

Also, is it odd for me to notice that she had a set of IONS before I noticed she was naked?

Sound Off! What Do You Want to Happen With Rock Band 3 DLC?

There’s been a lot of chatter around about what’s going to happen with existing, current, and new DLC now and when Rock Band 3 comes around. Thought I would throw a few questions out there to see what the community’s feelings are like regarding the state of DLC for the genre.

Also, feel free to add any comments you’d like at the bottom.

What’s in a Name? That Which We Call a Game by Any Other Name Would Play as Sweet?

Yup. We’re doing this…

OK, here’s the deal. The game is called “Rock Band.” It also has rock music in it. However, just like your radio, your iPod, and your local concert hall, more than just rock music is played. When I hear people complaining about DLC every week, this is the probably the “argument” that I hate the most. And it comes up a LOT. I don’t mind if you don’t like the music each week… really. I dislike Miley as much as you do, if not more. But I’ll let you in on a little secret… I don’t like the same bands as you. People freaked out about Iron Maiden DLC awhile back… Me: “Meh.” Megadeth DLC! Me: “Yawn.” Sorry, there’s just some bands I don’t get excited for. Doesn’t mean I’m going to claim the franchise is dead and squat on the corpse (I guess I can’t, since I’m a little more vested in it than the average person). But let’s take a quick stroll through Twitter to see what people are saying. The names have been hidden to protect the “innocent…”
