from hmxhenry on rockband.com: 

Rush – “Subdivisions” X
The Doors – “Light My Fire” X
The Doors – “Riders on the Storm” X
The Doors – “Touch Me” X
The Doors – “Hello, I Love You” 
The Doors – “L.A. Woman”

The Doors – “Love Me Two Times” 
The Doors – “Peace Frog” 
The Doors – “People Are Strange” 
The Doors – “Roadhouse Blues” 
The Doors – “Soul Kitchen” 
The Doors – “The Crystal Ship” 


(All tracks are original master recordings)
(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation 3 system Nov. 3)     
 $1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points) per song
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points™) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, €0.75 EU per song for Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade

So this morning's announced Rush track is the only new song next week.  The change to the Doors is that you can get them individually, and Light My Fire, Riders on the Storm, and Touch Me won't be free anymore (so get them now!).  Take note that Subdivisions will have pro guitar/bass.

Yeeeeah. Ah well, it's worth waiting for. 
 
So, to clarify, future DLC with keys and pro-keys support will still be $2, but to add pro-guitar and pro-bass it'll be an extra dollar?
#4 Posted by Falconer (1704 posts) -
@JJWeatherman: I was wondering the same thing. I would guess so, since keys aren't mentioned.

Yes, that's true.  At least you don't have to make that decision right away; you can get the regular song then add pro guitar later if you feel like learning a new song.  I like that.  I was worried that you'd have to buy one version or the other.

I hope they add 2112 sometime as a way to stick it to Guitar Hero even more.

Yeah, that's a really cool way to handle it. Thank you, Harmonix!

I'm guessing this is a teaser for more Rush DLC to come (or old DLC to be patched?). Seems odd that they'd just throw one mere track in the same week as The Doors.

I hope its a teaser. Honestly Subdivisions should've been Song #84 on the setlist, and the fact that it has Pro instruments charted just provides all the more reason it should've been included on disc.
 
i'm still buying it though...
#10 Posted by Falconer (1704 posts) -
@Timma1083: I agree that it should have been on the disc. I was shocked (well, mostly disappointed) when I saw it wasn't on the set list. It's fine that they put out sets/full albums by artists right after launch. But yeah, any singles put out this soon were done soon enough to have been put on the disc. 
 
While I would pay literally ANY amount of money for more Rush in Rock Band, I don't think this is really any sort of definitive indication that there's more to come.

You should keep in mind that they just launched effing Rock Band 3(!). That means more players potentially visiting the Music Store than ever before, and they need some draw to get people in there. At least Harmonix isn't an evil company. If that were the case, we would probably get all no-names on disc and all the good stuff would be DLC.

@JJWeatherman: Ooooh, this is true.

I guess I'm just a little mad that a band like The Muffs, who never make an interesting song for Rock Band, got a spot whereas Rush didn't. I'm more mad about the lack of genre-diversity in the setlist, as 1 Prog and 0 Grunge songs doesn't really sit well with me.
 
I'm still glad it's coming, but some of the decisions Harmonix makes really just baffles me.

I definitely agree about The Muffs. gtfo Muffs!  :P 
 
If you need more grunge and prog, go download 'Ten' and 'Moving Pictures'. That's what I did.

Trust me, I did the same the day they came out :)

Okay, that's a little unfair. To clarify, I'm not a big Muffs fan, but it probably wasn't in their power to take up a spot instead of Rush; there could be a number of reasons why Rush wasn't on the disc, like legal contracts or sound mixing issues. At least you can download them onto the game now, right?

I'm not trying to say it's their fault, and if it's coming off like that I apologize. I'm just upset that a game that prominently features the keyboard has such a lack of genre diversity, where Southern Rock, Prog, and even some form of Electronica/Techno could've been put in to maximize the instrument's potential, but instead we have "Outer Space" which, in my opinion, is flat out boring no matter what instrument you're on and doesn't even have a keyboard part.  
 
I have nothing against the band personally, but I've had people over to play the game and whenever this song comes up in a random setlist or someone listens to the preview, every single time they ask me why its on disc.
#18 Posted by Falconer (1704 posts) -
@Timma1083: I'm a little surprised that there wasn't a Freezepop song on there too. Especially considering their past with Harmonix, and the fact that they got their hands on that keyboard early to promote the game. I played Super Sprode the other day and it was even more fun on the keyboard.
#19 Edited by 234r2we232 (3181 posts) -

Who's casting aspersion on Outer Space? >:(
 
I have a bunch of Rush songs in my game and only one by The Muffs. If you're saying the game is lacking diversity by wanting MORE Rush... well, I don't think that's how it works!
 
Edit: AND in terms of prog music, I would much rather have Opeth than more Rush :P

You just reminded me I haven't played Less Talk More Rokk on the keyboard yet. That needs to change.
 
Freezepop would've been cool to have on disc.

Anti- Muffs and Ramones statements?!
 
Very disappointed with this topic :(

" the songs all sound and play pretty similarly. Maybe it's for those into Pro guitar or something. "
You hit the nail on the head there. Ramones songs were designed to be simple for fans to play with ease, it was a backlash to the Blues based music scenes at the time.
As for the Muffs, well for the shit show that the post first wave of punk became they ain't all that bad.

Yay!! Subdivisions on RB3!
 
Yeah I do agree that it should have been included on the disc but oh well.
 
Hopefully they release 2112 on Rock Band sometime in the future.  Either 2112 or Permanent Waves would be great.

#24 Edited by Falconer (1704 posts) -
@Blueprint12:
Power Windows > Permanent Waves, just sayin' 
 
I would totally lose it if they put all of 2112 (the album, not just the song) in there. It would become the best game ever then. 
 
 
 
Ever.

Is it sad that I'm more excited about this than I was for effing Halo? And I love me dem Haloz. I will potentially hop out of bed in the morning to play this. Very little can get a student out of bed in the morning. Well, other than maybe being late.
