Bullet For My Valentine headed to Rock Band this Tuesday

When I first saw that Bullet For My Valentine was coming to Rock Band 3, I somehow managed to confuse them with My Bloody Valentine (alt-rock darlings from the very early 90's). But then I saw the tracklist and thought, "Wait, 'Tears Don't ...

Rock Band 3: A bunch of Country music

I've always wondered why Country music is called Country music. Saying the name twice in one sentence already makes it sound weird, but if you think about it any more it completely stops making sense. See? It does make sense that Harmonix w...


Super sexy Mega64 song coming to Rock Band 3 DLC

Rock Band DLC: Soundgarden tries to live, does

Can anyone confirm that Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell is not immortal? Because I'm pretty positive that this guy doesn't age. Guitarist Kim Thayil has always looked like he was 79-years-old, but the frontman himself looks pretty much as ...


Rock Band DLC: Erasure, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, P.O.D.

Next week's Rock Band DLC is not only set to rock your face off, but arm you with a bit of music trivia. You're probably already familiar with Frankie Goes To Hollywood's 80s hit, "Relax." But did you know that the version included on the b...


Rock Band DLC: Maroon 5, Puddle of Mudd

Review: Rock Band 3

With 15 years of developing music games under its belt, saying that Harmonix Music Systems has some experience with the genre is a bit of an understatement. Launching into the spotlight with Guitar Hero in 2005, the Boston-based developer h...
