System of a Down, R.E.M., Buffalo Springfield, & The Vapors Add Tracks to Rock Band

Rock Band continues to offer amazing variety in our weekly DLC offerings, and this week is no exception! Two stand out singles from fan favorites System of a Down - “Aerials” and “Hypnotize” - make their way to the store. SOAD’s modern rock riffs are offset by the pop hooks of R.E.M.’s “Man on the Moon” and The Vapors “Turning Japanese.” A classic cut, “For What It’s Worth,” from Buffalo Springfield, rounds out the offerings for July 5th!

As always, songs available as downloadable content for Rock Band 3 feature five-button guitar and bass parts, drums, Pro Drums, and keys, Pro Keys and harmonies, where applicable. Some songs also feature Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades available for an additional $0.99 upgrade download. For more information about Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades, visit our support section. Rock Band 3 Pro Mode requires Rock Band Pro-compatible instrument controllers.
