$3 is only catered for awesome songs that everyone knows. "Atomic" is not one of those songs.

Everything HMXHenry said, I respect, just because he likes Dr. Doom, and that makes him awesome.
In my case, I have yet to spend any money on the RBN, because I'm having problems getting online with my xbox.
I'll never pay 3 bucks for any song, and I might spend 2 bucks for some songs, but they all get push back into my queue list of songs to buy because songs with a $1 price tag have more priority to me.
Since the price tag can change, I'll wait until then. If they never go down, then I'll just buy other awesome songs instead.
The thing for me is I bought three AWESOME All That Remains songs at one point for the same price as this one song.
It's like going to Taco Bell when you're drunk, you're always going to get 5 things from the 89 cent menu instead of one large item...
"Atomic" is a great song. I mean I had it on my RB3 list and everything.

"The $3 song is apt to sell only 80% as many as it would at $2 but based on the profit per track it would be a good idea"
It's all speculation at this point. I agree that for some (and probably most) tracks selling them at $1 could sell more then twice as many as it would at $2, but it's its conjecture. EMI putting tracks at $3 to see how they sell could be a way for them to get hard numbers.
And for a band like Blondie, which is a big name who is no longer producing music and is already in the game, generating new fans is not as much of a concern. If you are playing RB you know who they are and I don't think putting "Atomic" at a cheap price point will create new fans.
