From HMX: "While the schedule released by OXM includes a variety of tracks that are currently being worked on by our development team, we need to remind everyone that our internal list can and will change (daily even) until the songs are certed and approved by Sony and Microsoft. Unless you hear it here from a member of the HMX community team (myself, Sean, HMXJohnD), assume that things are unconfirmed rumors."
Its very possible that the reactions heard from the community concerning this OXM article may effect that internal list (which is possibly already completely different from the OXM article). I see you have recently joined. Welcome to the community and I hope you'll stick around and continue to post. Though some may consider your post harsh, HMX is always on these boards listening in and they appreciate all the feedback they get :)
i can't believe any of you people actually like this dlc this week no wonder why george bush is president this country is full of mindless tv zombies
Also, who do you think has more money to d/l the songs? A 16yo kid or me, a 25yo DINK(Dual Income No Kids)? I think the B52's song will be great...they totally remind me of the roller skating rink in middle school. This will be an awesome party song, which is what should help make up Rock Band's(a party game) library.
I'm not a big fan of the other two songs, but two of my coworkers actually had this on there mp3 playlists at the time of the announcement...so I'll certainly get them for parties.
Please re-read my previous posts on that matter though, and what HMX has posted in the past, and just the nature of the music industry. There are record labels/artists to get past.. everyone ignores that and keeps going:
- WelL Id ont recoGniz3 thees sungs!
Not every week you're going to get "Limelight" or "My Sharona" though, even that Metallica pack which is their best seller as a pack, I think if you asked the most casual fans out there to pick their favorite Metallica songs "Enter Sandman" and probably a couple of their more chilled out songs from the Black album. They can easily check billboard charts and see what was the most popular... and just churn those out but again.. record labels/record companies/artists.
The only thing I will say about this is that some artists are totally on board... Look at Metallica, Enter Sandman is on the main setlist, with a metallica pack already out, One is announced, so is an unnamed Metalliac album... AND probably when their latest songs are ready it will debut on RB as well. Personally I've grown to detest Metallica but I have newfound appreciation for their apparent approval of RB... perhaps as RB's popularity grows you'll see more artists follow the path QoTSA and Metallica have apparently taken.
