I didn't get a chance to post about it earlier this month, but the news we've been expecting has finally arrived: Weekly ROCK BAND DLC is ending as of April 2. I've gotta say, this saddens me, even though it's long overdue. ROCK BAND has enjoyed an incredible run, with over five years past the release of the first ROCK BAND game, which happened to have been the reason why I got an XBOX 360 in the first place. I have some great ROCK BAND memories that I'll share at another time, but until the last track arrives in April, I'll keep updating on what's set to hit on DLC. This Tuesday, tracks from THE FLYS, QUEENSRYCHE, and STAIND will be available.

Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii
Four singles are hitting the Rock Band Music Store on February 26th, starting with “Got You (Where I Want You),” The Flys’ first single from their second studio album, 1998’s Holiday Man. Queensrÿche’s epic “Silent Lucidity” – a Grammy-nominated track from the band’s 1990 album, Empire – will also be available. Finally, two tracks from rockers Staind will be available: “It’s Been Awhile,” the lead single from 2001’s Break the Cycle, and “So Far Away,” from 2003’s 14 Shades of Grey!

Available on Xbox 360, Wii, and PlayStation®3 system (February 26th, 2013):

  • The Flys – “Got You (Where I Want You) X
  • Queensrÿche – “Silent Lucidity” O
  • Staind – “It’s Been Awhile”
  • Staind – “So Far Away” O

That track from THE FLYS really takes me back... let's spin that one now:
