    Harmonix let slip early this week.  There's a Toby Keith 6-pack comin' out, plus some additional tracks that they'll announce on Friday.

    Man, a 6-pack for Toby Keith? He must be popular or something...


    It's skip-city for me next week, country ain't my thang. Kudos to HMX though for continuing to hit a lot of different genres with DLC.

    Probably people who like Toby Keith and also happen to own Rock Band or Rock Band 2. I might be wrong though, it's been known to happen.

    Dude, there are a TON of country fans out there.  I'm not surprised about this announcement at all.

    I doubt it. If anything it'll probably be some random singles. I don't think Harmonix would overshadow the Toby Keith songs like this especially since the Toby Keith tracks were released in a press release.

    There are people who don't listen to metal out there, you know. Might sound weird but we're not all 'Oh, fuck yeah, bro, this fucker from the 1980's can brutally shred.'

    You're right, but I can still dream. :]

    Oh well, I'll be playing Pearl Jam and Don't Stop Believing for a while.

    Black Tide, eh?  Shockwave is still one of my favorite songs on guitar, and I got it when I first picked up RB.

    Yeah that's a wicked fun one on guitar, the second solo gets me sometimes though if I didn't bring my A-game.

    I'll get the singles, the rest is meh.

    Kind of wishing we got Scream, Aim, Fire. Mainly because I like playing that song on GH:WT yet hate playing GH:WT.

    I guess this'll give me some time to buy some single that I still need to pick up from previous weeks.

    I'll probably buy Waking the Demon. I'm not that familiar with Black Tide, but Shockwave is a very fun song on guitar. Might buy Warriors of Time as well.
