This week we have some DLC that will doubtlessly be a hit at parties. Seriously. First off we have The Raconteurs (you are looking at huge Brendan Benson fan right here - seriously listen to the album One Mississippi and tell me he's not a genius). We also have two big hits from the Alanis Morissette catalog, a debut hit from the Flobots, and three from the Electric Six (who have been really highly requested as of late). For RBU we have a track from Green Day and anotehr from Rush. ENJOY!
