2/15/2013 9:27:00 AM
Looks like Harmonix is doing a bit of housecleaning next week by releasing three singles from three bands for Rock Band
DLC. Tracks from Barenaked Ladies, Collective Soul, and Fall Out Boy will all be available at the standard $1.99/160 MS Pt/200 Wii Pt price per song. Only the Barenaked Ladies’ “One Week” will have extra, supporting keyboards. Those with a Wii will be familiar with it, as it was released on the platform last August, but not on the 360 or PS3. Here is the complete list:
