American Pie concludes regular updates to Rock Band 3

That sacred store plays the music one last time

As I have been lamenting, the regular DLC updates for Rock Band 3 are coming to an end next week, but it's going out with a bang. Don Mclean's classic 1971 ballad chronicling the disappointments of counter-culture movements in the prior decade (and all-around good time sing-along tune), "American Pie," will conclude the historic 281-week run of content releases.

There's no better way to go out, in my opinion. "American Pie" releases to the Rock Band Music Store for PS3 ($1.99), Xbox 360 (160 MSP) and Wii ($2.00) on April 2nd. Long live the Jester.
