    So were they saving the big stuff for the weeks leading up to RB3? Perhaps to get more buzz and preorders?
    Well it makes sense in terms of good publicity. And the key/harmonies heavy stuff will probably come out first few weeks of RB3 (things like either The Doors/Elton John/Queen etc)

    And since we've gotten songs from some RB3 artists, there won't be as much of an immediate demand for MOAR!

    Might be a bit Ultimate setlist but - my hopes for upcoming DLC (according to rumours)

    Bob Marley -
    Slogans
    Natty Dread
    Buffalo Soldier
    Coming In From The Cold
    Stop That Train
    Concrete Jungle
    (Would have picked more obvious ones but I think they would benefit A LOT from keys)

    MCR -
    I'm Not Okay
    Teenagers
    Famous Last Words

    Sorry, but having his material in Rock Band without harmonies or keys is just really stupid. This pack is easily going to end up being one of the most requested content packs to be updated. It would just be boring without RB3's features.

    Seriously? This is depressing. Why would they get a song by Bob Marley (and this weeks dlc Dio) and feature it in RB3 when they are just going to release more DLC by them before RB3. This doesnt make much sense to me....

    Absolutely fantastic. I've been waiting for my chemical romance to have a chance in this game for the last three years. And now that its finally happening i have no idea how im going to contain myself for the next few weeks. Thank you sir, thank you very much :D
    Hold your horses there, buddy. You never know if MCR has had a Soundgarden/Miley Cyrus situation where it got pulled/delayed

    People need to chill on the *****ing about no harmonies and such... Until you load up RB3 and see that harmonies arent already coded in to some of these late DLC songs then begin your complaining please. Thanks.

    I remember before Rock Band 2 came out, we got DLC from System of a Down, Megadeth, Dream Theater, Devo, and Duran Duran, all before they showed up in Rock Band 2. I think this is similar because we've already seen DLC from The Vines, Juanes, Ozzy Osbourne, and now Dio and Bob Marley.

    Maybe there will be harmonies and keys charted in already. The closer we get to RB3, the bigger the bummer it is if there are at least not harmonies and keys. Green Day export has harmonies but RB2 just doesn't see them.

    Please HMX, for the LOVE OF ALL THINGS HOLY, do NOT release a Yes or Elton John pack BEFORE RB3!

    Hey, where are all those guys who predicted/ are still saying HMX is releasing crappy songs and "cleaning out the closet" before RB3?


    good luck with that

    I'll grab a few tracks maybe.

    A note for those wondering, "No Woman, No Cry" is a live version on the Legend album.

    One of the PAX panel answers said that they have the facility in RB3 to bring up old DLC w/o keys/harmony/pro up to versions with those features for RB3.

    It could be that all these DLC for the last few weeks - while all strictly RB2 compat, have mirrored DLC for RB3 sitting on HMX's computers (not XBL/PSN/Wii stores yet) that will be out on RB3 launch and that this feature of the RB3 library - to upgrade songs - will automatically redownload the improved versions.

    Between the various packs of the last few months and this Marley pack and the album cover hints like Chemical Romance, there *are* a lot of harmonies and keys that doesn't make sense to have not included, so this double track would keep HMX on the forefront of good DLC releases without looking like they are slacking.

    Um, they are cleaning house. They have to release these songs now since they'll be irrelevant in late October. If they had their way, these songs would be released post RB3, you know

    I know, and aside from a single tiny moment of feedback, it would be pure awesomeness for the keys and vocals.

    Maybe it is just me but for almost the past month each set of DLC has had some sort of new RB3 feature be it harmonies or keys or both. The fact this keeps occurring has me thinking HMX might be up to something like "Oh btw the past months DLC will upgrade to RB3 on launch". It is a long shot I'm sure but I can't help but think it. And I know that since RB3 DLC won't be RB2 compatible the recent songs aren't already RB3 ready... but I'm still curious and keeping my eyes open.

    Aww, again, I feel like it's a waste to release material that could use the RB3 features before RB3 drops.

    Although if they update it eventually, I'd be fine with that. Still, any Marley is good Marley. :)
    When you look at it, just about any song could use RB3 features (harmonies, keyboard, pro guitar/bass) at this point, so no matter what they do, they're going to run into that scenario. Best to keep releasing good DLC (albeit maybe not the most highly-demanded DLC) to keep interest up until RB3 comes along.

    Still no picture proof, huh? I can't watch VH1 Classic in any room but the family room, and all that TV ever plays is Disney Channel.

    Meh. I will get I Shot the Sheriff if it is one of the songs but I will do the very best I can to pretend I am actually playing the vastly superior Clapton version.

    Niiicceee Marley is a legend and it's great to have him. All the good DLC and the quotes lately makes me thing, maybe they figured out the update thing... so they want to give RB2 users last really good weeks of DLC, knowing that it would be updated sooner or later with RB3 features.
