Today, Harmonix Music Systems has issued an official response addressing the rumors and speculation on the supposedly final Rock Band 3 set list that had allegedly been revealed.
 
Earlier this week, GottGame.com posted a video interview with RB3 Project Lead Daniel Sussman during a recent Rock Band 3 press event. The interview in question contained shots of players scrolling through a massive list of on-disc songs for Rock Band 3--way more than the 41 songs that have been officially revealed--leading many to believe that what was on display was the in-game song selection menu containing the full RB3 set list. Rock Band fan site RockBandAide dug through and decoded the words on the selection screen from the high-res stream of the interview and put together a list of songs that the site suspects is the full track list for Rock Band 3.
 

 When you play Rock Band 3, we think it might look something like this. But wait for official word from Harmonix--we could be lying.
However, the team at Harmonix wishes to remind its fans that they should not put any stock into these unofficial video leaks. Any firm information regarding the full Rock Band 3 set list is going to come from the Harmonix, not from the misinformation provided by a video camera filming a screen. After all, Harmonix is a competent and successful developer. Would they really jeopardize their marketing plans by forgetting to look over their shoulder and checking what was behind them?
 
Though the PR team is over at Gamescom showing off Rock Band 3, Harmonix staffers John Drake, Aaron Trites, and Daniel Sussman have prepared the following official video response to officially comment on this unofficial set list rumor allegation. They just want to get the message straight: the information percolating out there on the internet is both "bad information" and "misinformation." if you see what looks like a full Rock Band 3 set list, it's because Harmonix wants you to see it.
 
 
When asked what he thought about all this, Giant Bomb's Jeff Gerstmann stated that Drake was "history," and that he was going to "cut [Drake] on his moneymaker, and by moneymaker, I mean face."  He then challenged Drake to a Dance Central dance-off during The Big Live Live Show: Live, which is some sort of all-day broadcast that Gerstmann and his "Whiskey Media" cohorts have been planning for September 9.
  
Either way, that's the official word from Harmonix. Don't listen to websites like Giant Bomb or RockBandAide, which claim to have the full Rock Band 3 set list. When the time comes to announce the full Rock Band 3 set list, you're going to hear it from Harmonix first. But probably not from John Drake. Because that guy will be dead.

This is viral genius. <3 Harmonix.
 
 ANTHRAX! Awesomely enough, it's the original version of Caught In A Mosh too! Better vocals, slightly less awesome sounding guitar. I'm guessing the final song to beat in the game? :D

#12 Posted by MaFoLu (1858 posts) -

I still think Giant Bomb is just a cover for drug smugglers using twinkies to smuggle cocaine. 
I mean, have you seen those guys? They have drug smuggler written all over them...

He's now Giant Bomb's new freelance journalist.

Best official denial of an information  leak ever.

#27 Posted by NickLott (792 posts) -

Very surprised and excited they got The Smiths in the game. I was of the thinking that Morrissey would never allow it. Hope they get more for DLC.

This is the Too Human fiasco all over again.

#29 Posted by DevWil (842 posts) -

lol.

#30 Posted by TadThuggish (904 posts) -

I can't tell if they're trying to be funny or not.  Yeah, Joystiq is UNCONFIRMED and Harmonix is CONFIRMED, but that's all the information they gave.
 Can't wait for Harmonix to reveal the exact same track listing...but this time, official!

#31 Posted by blaakmawf (543 posts) -

Harmonix is fuckin' cool.

@MaFoLu: 
So what you are saying, that all those Mailbag videos is just a way to get into contact with there cocaine suppliers? Dam! They must of had a great moth, if all those Twinkies were sent to them.
#33 Posted by pbhawks45 (736 posts) -

Prog Rock people just creamed themselves after seeing Yes on this set list.

#34 Posted by Kung_Fu_Viking (697 posts) -

I gotta ask why there's a link to GiantBomb.com in a GiantBomb.com news story. 0.o

#35 Posted by DonutFever (3550 posts) -

I think the last time I remember an ad on GB (Other than the quests, which don't require clicks) was for ODST.

Very much this.
#37 Posted by nutter (122 posts) -

Outstanding way to embrace a gaffe.
 
Also, that dance-off better not be just talk. After seeing the E3 clips of Jeff and Ryan playing Dance Central, I'm really looking forward to hands-on, video reviews, etc. I'll be home for the Big Live Live Show: Live taking care of my second kid and I'm planning on watching as much as I can while I have 6 pounds of sleep n' eat laying on my stomach.

Yea and they said people shouldn't come to their offices without contacting them first, that must be because the cops are watching them. Therefore they have to meet somewhere else... It all makes sense now!

It be a joke. Sounds like Giant Bomb got the list, posted it, then Harmonix went "Oh...wait....shit. Wasn't supposed to go out yet." and then posted this video.

Yep, I went through the leaked video, compiled a list of my own, and posted it on the Rock Band 3 forum. So I guess it's all my fault! :/

Can't we all just get along?  
 
Also, I've got money on Jeff. Vested interest and all.
