Apologies for being behind on this, but sometimes things pop up. That said, another song came out, so I get to include that here! Anyway, this week’s DLC brings us three early 2000s rock songs, featuring the returns of Audioslave, Godsmack, and Linkin Park! There is also a promotion with the dating app SCRUFF that allows you to get a free song from The Barbazons. Included below is the review of this week’s singles, as well as playthrough videos from the super awesome SpectrosRockHero! Definitely check out and subscribe to their channel!

All tracks are available for $1.99, except for Bad Catholics by The Barbazons, which is currently only available (for free) through the dating app SCRUFF.

This morning we heard from the official Rock Band Twitter account that they’d partnered up with gay dating app SCRUFF to deliver an exclusive free DLC song. All you need to do is create, or use your pre-existing account and head to the events page and RSVP to the Rock Band 4 event. You’ll then receive directions on how to download your free track.

What’s nice about this is that it’s not just a $2 code, it’s actually a brand new song that’s not available through any other means (yet). Below is the song available through the promotion:

  • The Barbazons – Bad Catholics

Now, if you’re not necessarily in the target demographic to be using a gay dating app, you’re not completely out of luck. Whether or not this is intentional, you can head over to http://www.rockband4.com/scruff where you can enter your email address and get a code for the song on the console of your choice sent to you.
