Listed Queen and Bowie DLC Inactive

edited January 2010 in LEGO: Rock Band
Just a quick question. I have both the Queen and David Bowie DLC and these all show as greyed out in my LEGO Rock Band track list.

Since both of these artists appear in the game it seems odd to me that they'd be permanently unavailable so I'm assuming that I have to unlock them somehow?

Do I need to complete the game to do this?

    When you unlock Queen and Bowie in the game, you can then play those songs.

    Just chillax untill then.

    I've played sets as both bands and that had no effect. I guess you mean unlocking actual figurines of the dudes?

    I have the exact same problem.

    Queen is the first band that is played so all of my other Queen songs should have opened then. They didn't.

    I've unlocked Bowie and Heroes is still grayed out.

    It seems to only happen for setlists. One of my guesses is the Queen, Bowie, and Spinal Tap songs are meant to be played by their respective in-game band characters, which wouldn't be possible in setlists... but then, their on-disc songs CAN be chosen in setlists, so that makes little sense.

    OP: Can you play those songs as single songs in free play? Or are they greyed out as both single songs AND in setlist mode?

    I'm going to have to test that out tomorrow. Off to a ball game tonight.

    Yes I think it is really weird. I did a 3 random setlist and it picked Under Pressure as the first track.

    I beat the game but still grayed out, but not in free play, just setlists. If I do random setlists, those songs can still pop up (Suffragette City came up for me, then a Spinal Tap song one)

    They don't unlock after the 2nd time either.

    For whatever reason, it seems like they're just not supposed to be playable in setlists (which oddly includes the 1-song Build-a-setlists early on in story mode, which despite being only 1 song are still considered a setlist). Even in Free Play mode, they're grayed out when you choose Make a Setlist.

    Why you can still pick their on-disc songs in Build-a-setlists, and why they still come up in random setlists, is a mystery, though... possibly an oversight? I dunno.

    Yeah I don't think my Spinal Tap works either even though I've played Heavy Duty twice in random setlists. I've played the Spinal Tap thing in the Zoo but they're all still locked. I'd like to know howtf to get all these songs unlocked.

    They're only blocked in custom setlists (which is every custom setlist in Story mode, including 1 song sets). They should be available to play right from the start in Free Play... I went and checked with a new profile and new save, and they were all playable there.

    I don't think there's any way to unlock them for setlists though. I don't know why not.

    i think you have to play them separately in free play in order to be able to play them in free play setlists. as i said earlier, that happened with we are the champions. i tried it with i want it all earlier, and after i played it, i could play it in setlists.

    Confirmed, I just tried that with Cups & Cakes, and it worked. Unfortunately, that only enables them in Free Play setlists (which I don't often use anyway), and not Story.

    The latest patch (for the PS3, at least) fixes this issue.

    We already know about the patch. Don't necropost unless you're adding something to the thread.

    He did add something to the thread - there was no mention of the patch in it. Sometimes useful to add information like that to old threads, if it's relevant to the question, as these threads come up on Internet searches. Indeed, "Rock Band Queen Bowie DLC" in Google takes me straight here.

    And, I'll add my own info - the patch currently isn't available, at least in the EU. It was for a short period at the end of last year, but has since vanished.
