No Train in Vain? :(
 
I would like to play Spanish Bombs though. Best song on that album.

Well, no RB3 version of it.  The song was released as DLC a couple of years ago.

Ok, Harmonix alone is coming very close to convincing me to update my PS3 so that I can use the store...
 
But goddamn it I've been on 3.15 this long. Its more punk to not update than it is to buy The Clash, so I hope they understand.

Way to alienate the people that supported them by making all the new DLC for only RB3.

It's been that  way since RB3 came out, and I'd be interested to see who is still holding out on getting RB3 at this point anyway.  It's sort of like complaining that other games DLC isn't supported by earlier versions (Madden, Halo, CoD, etc.)
 
Pretty cool that they're coming out with this.  Harmonies should be fun.

Not a big fan of the Clash, but London Calling is pretty sweet.

Lots of pro guitar in this one for those who have one.

This makes me ridiculously happy.  London Calling is one of my favorite albums of all time, and unlike The Colour and the Shape, pretty much all of it should be RB-friendly.

Yes! It took 2 fucking years but we finally get some more of The Clash.

Happy to see more Clash, but disappointed they went with London Calling.  I'm in the minority, though, so I'm not surprised.

Cool! I have very little knowledge of any of these tracks... but cool!

I may be wrong, but I think most of the supporters bought Rock Band 3.

There totally should have been a RB3 version, that song's got some nice harmonies & keys.
 
other than that, definitely gotta pick this pack up, and then eventually the Rock Band 3 version of Train in Vain, which they'll probably do down the line (hopefully in a pack, so I don't feel quite as bad about re-buying it)
 
Edit: oh, also, that pack with the Train in Vain (RB3 Version) totally needs to have Rock the Cashbah on it too... oh and Know Your Rights... actually, maybe they should just put out the whole Combat Rock album next, haha!
