The track that will be leaving on August 28th is:

  • T. Rex – Bang a Gong (Get It On) (cover)

The tracks that will be leaving on September 30th are as follows:

  • The Janitors – Get Your Rock On
  • Locksley – All Over Again
  • Locksley – Don’t Make Me Wait
  • Locksley – She Does
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow ((Hey Oh))

  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – Under the Bridge (pro)

UPDATE: @HMXhenry has posted a FAQ about this batch of DLC that’s leaving.

  • Yes, “Bang A Gong” is an As Made Famous By recording, not the original studio master.
  • The Pro guitar upgrade for “Under the Bridge” will be coming down with the rest of the RHCP tracks listed above on 9/30.
  • DLC codes included with the Mad Catz manufactured Mustang bundles should still redeem “Under the Bridge” and the associated Pro upgrade as normal. So if you haven’t redeemed your code, or if you track one of these bundles down at retail, the codes are expected to function normally.
  • “Snow ((Hey Oh))” will still be exportable from Rock Band Track Pack Vol 2. As mentioned in previous rounds of re licensing, disc based content operates differently from downloadable content.
