1/11 DLC will include a 6-Pack of Linkin Park

#1 Edited by skrutop (3615 posts) -

The @RockBand twitter account leaked a six-pack of Linkin park for next week, including:
 

  • Crawling
  • In the End *
  • Numb
  • Somewhere I Belong
  • Waiting for the End
  • What I’ve Done *
 
* = pro guitar/bass for an extra $1.
 
Update: That's officially it this week.  Songs are $2, pack is $10.  

I liked Linkin Park a few years ago, but I'm pretty much over them now.  In The End is a cool song and will work well with keys and harmonies.  I call screaming guy!

I will almost assuredly be picking out at least a few songs and then screaming them into my microphone.

Rock Band and Guitar Hero are played out (pun intended). In the end it doesn't even matter (clever use of lyrics intended).

I hate my parents so I fully support this pack.

I still really like Hybrid Theory, but Waiting for the End is tempting because of the harmonies. Might pick up the first three tracks from this pack eventually, I have to finish the rest of RB3 first though.

Well, I guess some people still listen to nu-metal?

Man they should have just released the whole Hybrid Theory album as DLC!

They should've included 'Given Up' :p

I really do hate myself for being a fanatic of this band when I was young and stupid, but Hybrid Theory at least had some semi-interesting songs on it at the time. Meteora was definitely the highlight of their career though. 
 
That being said, fuck this band's lack of talent.

They picked the right ones. I don't care for that band now but I'll pick these songs up.

Idk, they probably just had a bigger appeal to a younger audience back then.  I know because I was part of that audience.
 
I still like their old material to be honest though, I could care less if anyone criticizes me for liking old Linkin Park or not but I definitely will say that their newer material has been pretty weak and they're just not the same like they were when they first came out.

Well, that sucks.

At least it's not from their latest album. 
 
Yuck.

My roommate had the DVD-audio version of Meteora.  Listening to that in 5.1 surround was amazing.  I'm with you now; I left this band in the dust a long time ago.

All looks like pretty good stuff, although I'm not a huge fan of 'Waiting for the End'.

They should have chosen Numb/Encore instead.

Shocked to see an actual decent selection of Linkin Park songs here.
