Official Response to the "Leaked" Rock Band 3 Set List

edited September 2010 in Announcements
Hey gang,

Sorry for not posting this response sooner, but nearly the entire Community / PR team is showing off RB3 and Dance Central at Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

So in the last day or two there's been a lot of speculation about a supposedly "leaked" Rock Band 3 set list. As with all rumors, it's all worth taking with a grain of salt, and I think for the most part you guys in the community know not to believe anything until you see it officially confirmed by us.

Here is our video response, the OFFICIAL reaction, to this "leak" that surfaced the other day. Please check it out and let us know what you think.

To help stem the continued flow of misinformation please spread the news by cross posting the above link to Twitter and Facebook. We're just a few fans away from hitting 500,000 followers on Facebook, at which point we'll release an exclusive RB3 trailer. Thanks in advance for helping to spread CORRECT info about Rock Band 3.

    Okay, Henry, I have to bow to you and John Drake, you guys have some of the best senses of humor this side of the games industry, and the class you've shown has proven to be...epic!

    anyway, keep up the good work, can't wait to play "Angel is a Centerfold" and "China Groove"

    Thumbs man, Thumbs!

    But shame on you for a lack of Rush!

    Imagine? Really? I know we wanna use the keyboard, but think of the other instruments. Instant Karma!, guys.

    But I love this. So much.

    Great response guys. I was also surprised at the two songs we didn't know about, but in a good way. I love every song on the setlist, and you guys are the best. :D

    Oh god, I would love more Radiohead so much more than almost anything else. But It's too strange we didnt have anything since Rb1 and GH never had any Radiohead to begin with.

    I have the bad feeling that there are licensing problems... :(

    That was soo hilarious!!!! You guys are awesome!!! Thanks for starting my day off with a laugh. I wonder what will you guys do for the RB2 export "announcement" (or "leak" if there is one), since that's the only other set list news were waiting for you to "not confirm" Ha Ha Ha Ha.

    Have a safe trip back from Germany, so you can finally tell us what the setlist is when you're not busy over there.

    Dave ghrol is in two songs already. I would not be surprised if we would get a huge foo dlc pack right when rb3 launches because the guitar is alot of power chords so it would be great for pro guitar.

    On the other hand thank you Harmonix you are my heroes

    To Henry...John... and all the rest of you at Harmonix...

    I seriously can't tell you how grateful I am that you chose to do the right thing and address these horrible rumors directly and with forthright honesty. It speaks so highly of a company that you would be willing to stand out in front of your customer base and handle these rumors head-on. There just aren't many others out there who would handle this with such dignity, class and grace.

    ....

    Oh, and your collective awesomeness in this video totally owns my soul, now. :-) Well played, and thank you!
