It seems everyone now realizes "Stomp X2" is a great way to advertise their song twice. A mammoth ELEVEN (2x Bass) versions passed this week (although at least a couple will get pulled).
Release complications aside, that bumps us up to 72 (2x Bass) versions, and we'll probably be at a hundred before the summer's out. Each and every one considered a "new song" by the website, when it's really just a "chart alternative" for a song that already exists.
Yeah, I know. It's a minor detail and I'm quibbling over technicalities.
Just irks me that the website claims there are "2,984" songs available right now when the number's actually much different.
If you include musically unique content, you get 2,948. (That number drops by about ten if you omit songs that are no longer available, like Atomic or Snoop's Upside Ya Head.)
If you included ALL content (pre-RB3 versions and 2x Bass versions), you'd get 3,035. (The website's count misses a lot of songs like Country Pack 02 and the Ozzy Pack exclusives, and probably isn't adding this week's RBN songs yet. Not to mention that it still thinks Enter Sandman is in Rock Band 3!)
Right, meaningless rant over. You can go on to more relevant topics now.
