Harmonix song license requests hint at non-rock music game

Harmonix song license requests hint at non-rock music game photo



You think Harmonix is working on the next Rock Band beyond Green Day: Rock Band? Yeah, me too. But how about a game featuring the music of hardcore hip-hop duo M.O.P.? Didn't see that one coming, eh?

According to The Royalty Network, Harmonix Music Systems recently put in license usage requests for the following songs:

  • M.O.P. - "Ante Up"
  • Cascada - "Evacuate the Dance Floor"
  • Trey Songs - "Say Aah"
  • Timbaland feat. D.O.E. - "The Way I Are"

You might notice these aren't tracks that would fit anywhere in Harmonix's current Rock Band titles without some serious imagination. So what could they be for? Well, it may be for nothing at all -- requests for license usage doesn't mean they'll actually be used... they're simply requests. But what if they're looking to create the next Amplitude, or a new music franchise entirely?

Or maybe Harmonix CEO Alex Rigopolos just really likes M.O.P.; who can resist lyrics like "Fool what you want? Your life or your jewels?" Not me, that's for sure. First Family, fools. First Family.

When contacted about the songs licenses, a Harmonix/MTV Games rep threw out the expected "No comment" right before he yanked my gold chain and ran off.

Tell Harmonix to put the entirety of '...Like Clockwork' in Rock Band 4

Looking forward to Rock Band 4 just as much as I am? You're probably wondering how the upcoming roster is going to look. Me too. In fact, I'm pretty concerned. I dropped a pretty penny on hundreds of songs, with 70% of them i...more

Rocksmith will turn you into a guitar legend like Hendrix or the guy from Papa Roach

Rocksmith 2014's getting some DLC songs by Papa Roach today. One time in eighth grade, a kid in my class started a speech by saying "Cut my life into pieces, this is my bat report. Echolocation, no seeing. Vampire bat bite your arm, now you're bleeding." I wonder what he's up to. Probably not playing Papa Roach songs on Rocksmith, if I'm being really honest.more
