So sorry for the extended absence of this series. My time on Destructoid has been diminished thanks to awesome internet restrictions at work. Hooray!


The Mother Hips - Time Sick Son of a Grizzly Bear



Analysis: I hate when this happens. I hate when I hear a song I don't know and then end up liking it and then end up spending more money on this DAMN GAME. This is good song, it reminds me of the kind of unlockable music in the first Guitar Hero game. Just a straight up chill rock song. IIRC the other song The Mother Hips have on Rock Band is pretty solid too. Might they join the ranks of Freezepop, Bang Camaro, and Honest Bob and the Factory-to-Dealer Incentives? I suppose a solid third song could make that happen...

The Mother Hips - Red Tandy



Analysis: Bam. I will now look for The Mother Hips in future Harmonix games. This is a good song, it is a little weird at parts, but this I show my favor upon. However, if you aren't a fan of the Grateful Dead (and I know that a shit load of you are not) then you may not like this song as it sounds kind of exactly like a Dead song. Red tandy makes me wish there were back-up vocals in Rock Band.

Smashing Pumpkins - Zero



Analysis: I once said about a classic rock DLC song on here, that if you heard that particular song on a radio station, you were most likely going to get quality songs on that station. I would put Zero by the Smashing Pumpkins in that category as well. It's kind of one of those songs you hear the name and you don't think you know it, but then you hear the song and it clicks. A lot of people (me) wish Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness had been comprised of songs more like this and Bullet with Butterfly Wings. But I suppose diversity is good too. Anyway, I expect this song will sell very, very well. Good choice Harmonix.



This week's DLC gets a:

B+

...because the Mother Hips are surprisingly good and a solid rock out song like "Zero" will bump the score any day. A good week for DLC. Unfortunately, the songs are not available as a pack so you have to pay $6 if you want all three. But after listening to them al
