RB4 setlist: http://www.rockband.com/forums/showthread.php?t=214620
I would just like to say: please don't yell, name-call or get angry.
I've been attempting to express what I would have liked to see rather than telling Harmonix that they are stupid and shouldn't have released this DLC. Instead of losing it, I tried taking the "constructive criticism" path.
Follow my lead.
So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, good night.
Re questions, concerns, nervous conclusion jumpers worried about how we're going to roll out the rest of GDRB: the current plan is to release all of the remaining tracks in one week in the near future.
Additionally, if there had been Pro guitar upgrades, they wouldn't have worked with the exported tracks, which wouldn't have served the hardcore community the upgrades would likely be intended for.
Yay the two songs from Green Day Rock Band I wanted are DLC!
I never need to get it
THANK YOU HARMONIX

Oh and for the record I've got about 102 degree fever and I'm all jacked up on NyQuil. Take nothing I say to heart as a few minutes ago Gene Simmons busted through the wall Kool-Aid man style and then beat up a flaming Pegasus using Alice Cooper as a singing sword. Then they flew off on a four headed panda bear while screaming free Popsicles for everyone. Leaving me to clean up the Pegasus mess.
It's been a weird morning.
Check out the TAG website here! :
Harmonix releases a fully exportable Green Day title. People whine about them being lumped together in one giant export.
Harmonix announces intentions to release the entire setlist as Cherry-Pickable DLC. People whine about having previously bought the game. Other people whine about there not being any new Green Day. Other people whine about not getting Pro upgrades. And yet others whine about it being Green Day.
Let's look at the perks for people who bought the GD:RB disc:
1) You got an entirely new game.
2) You got achievements, goals, online.
3) You got first crack at the setlist both on the disc and as an export.
Now let's look at the perks for people who didn't buy the GD:RB disc:
1) You get to cherry pick the tracks you wanted.
2) You're "versions" of the song will be fully compatible with those who exported.
If you're in the first group, why are you complaining? You made a decision that having 45 Green Day songs in your library was worth taking on. Nobody held a gun to your head to tell you this was what you had to do. You could've have said no, Green Day wasn't worth that. You had the option to wait for inevitable price drops.
If you're in the second group, why are you compaining? You decided it wasn't worth the full disc price, or perhaps didn't want to deal with that many Green Day songs. Hey good for you. You can either cherry pick the songs you want as they come out, or find a cheap copy of the disc and get everything for a lower price. Just like how DLC packs work now.
There's also the third group that just doesn't like Green Day at all. Which makes this week no different than any other week they get offended that a band they don't personally approve of gets DLC.
I've already got my Green Day export sitting on the HDD. And I'm glad that now others who hesitated have options to add some songs. Because now it means I have a better chance of encountering these songs during online play.
Not to mention this now sets a precedent that HMX could potentially use when negotiating rights to other artist's songs. Who knows, maybe the same timer is running on The Beatles: Rock Band. I'm not going to get my hopes up, but I'll certainly keep my fingers crossed.
Learn to take what you dish out. And considering the venom and vitriol behind a large number of the complaints from the "fanbase", I think HXM's responses are relatively tame.
