After 21 Months of Inactivity, the Rock Band Music Store Adds New DLC

Rock Band 3 (PS3)

One of the things I like the most about the video game industry is its ability to not make any sense and this is definitely one of those instances. After being inactive for almost two years, the Rock Band Music Store has added three new songs to its large library, developer Harmonix has announced.

The tracks in question are Arctic Monkeys’ “R U Mine?”, Avenge Sevenfold’s “Shepherd of Fire” and Foo Fighters’ “Something from Nothing” and each of those songs is available for $1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU, depending on where you live. Note that these tracks, which are coming to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live later today, are compatible with Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz.

I recently got into Rock Band again when I purchased both Rock Band 3 and Rock Band Blitz for the Xbox 360. Since I missed most of those games back in the day, I was hoping to get back into the series, by buying pretty much every Rock Band game ever released and playing them in the order they came out. Weirdly enough, I don’t have most of the plastic instruments, so I’ll probably end up playing karaoke. Nevertheless, if you’re like me or if you’re remotely interested in playing Rock Band games in 2015, new DLC sounds like a great idea.
