    So has there been any official word as to the in-game RBN store not actually updating? I know people keep coming up with excuses (Not updating on weekends, They only update in clumps, etc...) but I haven't seen an official explanation yet and this leads me to believe it's a technical problem.

    What do I know though? I'm just a nerd wanting to play some Flight of the Conchord :/

    My thinking at this point has to be that they are waiting for x amount of songs before updating the store.

    Possibly 10?

    We just hit that number so we'll see if the store updates to day to back that theory up.

    I got tired of waiting for the store to update so from this point on I'm going to include songs in the OP as soon as they appear on the songs page here on RB.com.

    Not excuses....:rolleyes:

    People are wondering what's going on, and others are discussing possible reasons. Not everything has to be an excuse you know.

    And also, did HMX ever say it was guaranteed that the service would update daily? I always figured it was based on how quickly content could be pushed through the system.

    I'm pretty sure there hasn't been anything like the RBN before. So is it any surprise that MS/HMX have some kinks to bang out of the system. Rock Band isn't the only game that has content it needs put out on the store front after all.

    Oh hey...LOL. I just realized that the Conchords are the first band to make use of the "Novelty" genre! :)

    Which means we now have a song for every category on the RB2 list. ("Top Back" for Urban, "Stray Cat Strut" for Jazz, and "Demon Woman" for Novelty).

    I was wondering if they were ever going to use it.

    Now I just wonder why the other fairly-obvious Novelty songs haven't been tagged as such (Coulton, Colbert, Spongebob, Frontalot, etc)

    It's a bug that HMX and MS are looking into. Hopefully they'll fix it soon.

    Also, FotC - The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room) is up on XBLM.

    Well, "Novelty" carries with it a certain connotation. I mean, if it's just another word for "Joke song" or "Funny song" why wouldn't Tenacious D also be there?

    I guess 10 is the magic number.
    Haha, I had a stupid grin on my face the entire time I was playing Most Beautiful Girl in the Room

    Did the RBN store update?

    EDIT: "AFRICA" by Quartered is listed as approved, so it should be up soon-ish. Drummers should be very, very, very excited about this.

    EDIT: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/games/offers/80000185-0000-4000-8000-000045410869?cid=RockBandCom&partner=RockBandCom link for Africa - Quartered. It doesn't work yet, but it should in a few minutes.

    If the store has updated today, that's it for the releases. I doubt MS would be happy with HMX wanting them to push songs out multiple times a day.

    Because the D is the greatest and best band in the world.

    Also, nice to finally get some Conchords in the game

    hey, when i go to the X-Box Live page for "The Most Beautiful Girl In the Room" it says "Trial Song / Free" what exactly does that mean compared to say "Demon Woman" that cost 160 points i'm hesitant to download until i know exactly what's going on with it

    The "Trial Song" is what you download when you choose "Download Demo" from the RBN Music Store. Demos are obviously free.

    If you know Hex, the full version so far has been found by adding 1 to the current value in the URL. It's also available by going to "The Music" and finding the song's page there.

    For my own sanity, I will always post demos when linking to RBN songs. This is to avoid any situation in which people accidentally buy songs because they weren't paying attention. And it's also because the demos are there...so people might as well use those to really get a feel for the song.

    I went to the song page on this site (http://www.rockband.com/songs/UGC_5001646) and it had a link to the full song.

    Temper temper...
    Also, it's a bug that HMX and MS are aware of and are working to fix.

    To whet your appetite, here's the expert guitar chart for Mordecai.

    Blondie - Atomic

    It's 240MSP. Which absolutely sucks. No way am I buying it now. EMI are the new WMG.

    Not unexpected at all, I won't buy it either :(

    I'd pay 240msp for epic 10min songs, but for Atomic? No, thanks.
