Rock Band DLC: Phoenix and a live Tom Petty track pack

Another week, another bunch of Rock Band DLC. If had any ideals, I'd refuse to post about DLC since it's obviously just a ploy by the Man to squeeze you for your precious banana dollars; but, apparently, this game is popular. You guys dig on Rock Band it seems. I'm a populist if nothing else.

I'm like, y'know, the Sarah Palin of Rock Band DLC posts on Destructoid.

The "big" news is that there's another Tom Petty pack, but we'll get back to him: what I'm really interested are two Phoenix songs making their Rock Band debut: "1901" and "Lisztomania." Both songs will also be available in Lego Rock Band.

I know I'll lose cred since it was in a Cadillac commercial, but "1901" was one of the catchiest songs of last year (and, to date, my only real experience with Phoenix, even though they've been around for almost a decade). Actually, Harmonix should release a "Cool Songs that were in Commercials" track pack -- it could feature Nick Drake, Seawolf, Architecture in Helsinki, and Blur, off the top of my head.

Rock Band obsessive Nick Chester thinks songs in commercials are lame, but he's obviously wrong.

But anyway, back to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Their second anthology pack comprises six live recordings of songs that don't include the words "Oh my my, oh hell yes." Which is too bad, because there's something satisfying about saying "oh hell yes," whatever the occasion. Here's the list (songs marked with + are also in Lego Rock Band):

"A Woman in Love" +

"Breakdown" +

"Century City" +

"Jammin' Me"

"Nightwatchman"

"The Waiting" +

There's also "Blue Jeans" by Silvertide available this week, but nobody's ever heard of them.

Individual tracks will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and the Wii for $1.99, or however much moon money you need to make $1.99 on the 360 and the Wii. The Tom Petty track back will set you back a ten.
