    The store is still showing 116 songs.

    So it hasn't updated here in the states yet.

    I'm going to wait until the store updates to update the OP.

    Can someone here tell me where in the xbox.com store exactly RBN songs are located? (it's not under rock band 1 or 2 or rock band music store) I want to see what's new today before I have to leave for work

    If not, that's cool too. I can wait...but I'd rather not :p

    They're all under RB2 but for some reason you have to search through google's "site:xbox.com" to find them.

    HMX said they probably won't update the store at weekends, but they will probably update most days for the first few weeks and then less frequently from then. Which really means that they should make the RBN songs on XBLM more accessible if they aren't updating the in game store everyday.

    Just go here (http://www.rockband.com/music/songs) and sort by date. Each song has a link to the xbox.com store for it.

    Today we got:

    Flight of the Conchords - Demon Woman (160)
    The Shins - So Says I (160)
    Winds of Plague - Approach the Podium (160)
    Uniform Motion - Roll Over (80)

    Hmmm...if Demon woman just popped up then that means it takes about 3 days from a song being approved to appear in the store.
    We'll still have to see how weekends affect the time of post-approval "quarantine". We just got James William Roy's "Shiny Dark Bar" through Friday afternoon, so that will be a good test.


    And one request on the listing: could we get it in reverse chronological order? Newest at the top?

    Thanks for doing this. Wish that HMX had something for it themselves already in place, but it's good to have awesome community volunteers!

    It takes them an extra few hours to show up in Canada I guess, because they aren't up in the store yet (FofC, others that came out today) and I can't access the page on xbox.com since it's not in my region yet. Also, Code Monkey and Cali Girl are both still listed as 0 MSP and crash the system when i try to access them.

    Well, partially so: that's the raw data, but I'd like to be able to see the day's releases all on its own.

    So what noble's doing is cool with me, but it takes his attention to do so. It could be automated fairly easily by HMX! And then we could point some twitter or RSS feeds at it (or even email list), so you get notified via your favorite channel.

    I suppose we could write some sort of process to "scrape" that data off the page and poll it regularly. Hrrrmmm...

    Good idea on putting the newest stuff first. I'll get the original post changed.

    Also until the songs physically show up in the store I won't post them in this thread as being 'available'.

    I know there's a work around of some sorts to find the songs on xbox.com, but I'm not going to list those as available.

    I'm glad there are all these songs, however alot of them charging 160, have just lost a purchase, mostly the ones that I was on the fence about such as Glass Hammer and Steve Vai. I realize they need to make money, but charging 80 instead of 160 for non HMX made songs makes sense, in the long run they'll probably make more at 80 rather than 160, with that in mind im glad the Flogging Molly songs are 80 along with some others, I'll still get JoCo at 160 each but his reg. DLC songs are 80, so w/e RBN still rules.

    I don't really considering going to a HMX page and clicking a link a workaround.

    See I didn't realize this option was available.

    Last I knew there was some links on xbox.com and people were changing numbers around in the link to find the songs on the site.

    Yep, they fixed up the song pages sometime yesterday so that they all have working links to the xbox.com page for the song.

    I don't know why it matters. I find them just as fun as if HMX would've made it. And it's not like it's just indie bands that are on/coming to RBN either.

    Yeah, 80 MSP will help push me over the fence if I find the song only just mediocre. But that same thing is even true for me with HMX produced DLC. I love JoCo, so I don't mind paying 160 points for him. He's worth it to me. Same with Amberian Dawn and other songs I paid 160 points for on RBN.

    Okay I'm not sure where to ask this, so I'll just throw it in this thread. I guess there isn't going to be weekend releases?

    Makes sense. There's likely nobody at HMX or MS to update the marketplace with the new tracks.

    Yes, i posted in thread this morning, we got 4 new songs. I think you have to buy through the website though.

    It has not been officially released as RBN DLC yet as it is not in the songs list. Has someone found a link to it on xbox.com?

    Also, from what the author said, it's not in the store due to rights/legal stuff. So, I'm not sure if there are any ramifications of people downloading a song that has not been OK'd for release by HMX yet.

    They mean you can find them on the website here by following the link.

    I think I'll wait until the songs actually show up in the store to post the info in the original post.

    I don't want to be answering a hundred posts a day wondering where song x is in the store ;)

    I will post the info on how to find the songs outside of the store in the op though for those that want to find it.

    I can understand not wanting to post ones that people have had to search through xbox.com to find, but putting the ones on HMX's songs page should be fine. Just put next to the date, "Available on xbox.com and not in-game store" or something like that. Seems like a lot of people don't know 4 songs have come out today.
