Harmonix song license requests hint at non-rock music game

0

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.
