Here's how I look at it. Many more people are likely to buy a song they're on the fence about for $1 than $2 (let alone $3).
If you get 30% that's 30 cents for a $1 song, or 60 cents for a $2 song, clearly you get more per $2 song.
The $1 song is apt to sell at least 4x as much, thus the band would actually make twice as much money. Not to mention the increase in numbers of listeners to that band, which could lead to increased sales in their other music and products, and an increased chance that their songs will make it to the PS3 / Wii (due to high number of sales) and thus be even more profitable.
And more on topic, I don't think I would've bought Blondie tracks anyway. $3 is a definite no for me, I still have a bunch of great tracks from regular RB DLC I haven't been able to afford yet.

Now can we get 'Rapture', id pay 3 bucks for that song too. Hitler's dog rules.
It really come down to how badly you want the song. I really dont have any bad feelings towards the labels who will be charging 3 bucks.
Then again its not the smartest way to sell the tracks.
Yeah I am not sure we needed a whole thread on this.. People that dont like the 3$ vote with your wallet. People who like the song and dont care the cost buy it and dont feel bad in the least.
I think the main uproar on this is(for me atleast) the first Major Label on RBN to post a song in the store is 3$. That dosent mean all by them are going to be 3$ but the excitement of bigger labels using the network has been taken back just a bit but its way too early to tell if this is a trend or blip on the radar.
For the most part DLC costs are ridiculous. Unfortunately gamers still pay it so they will keep over charging. Take a stand, and then stick by it, if you don't like it. If enough people pay the $3, get used to paying $3 for everything.
It shouldn't bother me...BUT IT DOES!

Of Montreal, Prince, Ween, & Pavement for DLC
No way in hell I'd pay 240 points for something like "Atomic". While I like the song, I wouldn't pay a third more than most songs just for this tune. Hopefully this pricing scheme will fall flat on it's face, and EMI will force themselves to low it.
Not buying into it EMI. Sorry.
I would've bought the song, if it weren't for the price. 240 MSP is way too much for just one song.
