  • Between the Buried and Me - "Prequel To The Sequel"
  • The Cab - "Bounce"
  • The Chevelles - "Get It On"
  • The Cocktail Slippers - "Give It To Me"
  • Dealership - "Database Corrupted"
  • Endeverafter - "I Wanna Be Your Man"
  • The Ghost Hounds - "Ashes To Fire"
  • Hollywood Undead - "Young"
  • Kutless - "The Feeling"
  • The Len Price 3 - "If I Ain't Got You"
  • Lesley Roy - "I'm Gone, I'm Going"
  • Opiate for the Masses - "Burn You Down"

Wow, kind of a let down really... Too bad.
Wow, that list is horrible. I don't recognize a single song. I won't even bother getting these. Oh well, at least we finally get a Nirvana pack this week.
Wow. They must really be trying to attract the non-mainstream crowd. As a semi-professional musician, I only recognize 1 band from that list. Wonder how many Rock Band players will recognize...:confused:
Even though I've never heard of any of those bands or tracks I'll be downloading them. I found some of my favourite tracks from Rock Band were the bonus tracks that I didn't know.

If they aren't fun to play or I don't like the music they'll be erased, but I'll at least give Harmonix the benefit of the doubt.
Yeah, unfortunately you can't erase songs on the PS3. I wish I could have erased some of the imported RB1 songs!
More songs is always a good thing. My favorite songs on RB1 were all songs Id never heard before. Its also a great way to get interested in new bands.

If you want songs from your fav bands, thats what the store is for.
These are not great... but I will d/l them just to have more tracks to play. You can never have enough I suppose. And with my upgraded HD have more than enough room so why not.

Unfortunately my experience in general with RB2 has been disppointment... the songs are just not that great. Yes, there are some good ones on there but the vast majority are kind of... meh. My friend who has a PS actually took his name off the pre-sale list after playing my XBox version.
