Rock Band DLC: 30 Seconds to Mars, Rubber Soul

I hate it when Nick Chester makes me do the Rock Band DLC post. So anyway, here is some music and stuff from some musicians and stuff. You get music from Green Day, All-American Rejects and 30 Seconds to Mars this week. Good for you! The 30 Seconds to Mars song is that one in Dragon Age: Origins commercials. Excitement abounds. 

Rubber Soul is also coming to The Beatles: Rock Band on December 15. Including such tracks as “Nowhere Man” and “In My Life,” it’ll be an easy download choice for fans of the game. 

If you like music, you will certainly be interested in downloading music for your music game so that your music game will play the music that you downloaded for your music game. Music game. Music music music. Music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music music.
