    Uh, seriously though...why doesn't the Wii get the free tracks?

    Is the HMX pack available as singles? In other words, do I really have to download Visions, Shoulder to the Plow, and Get Clean again?

    Great songs choice by an awesome artist... but for me it doesn't fit with rock band (or at least, with my vision of the game) so I'll just pass. I'm glad that we finally have some different epic artists in this platform. The awesomeness never ends.

    Also: VISIONS PRO DRUMS! JAGGED GORGEOUS WINTER WITH HARMONIES! FINALLY!!

    Doesn't Nintendo not allow free content in their online stores? Sounds like Nintendo's issue, not Harmonix's fault.

    I don't think that's the problem, I can remember downloading a couple of free tracks from the RB2 music store.

    Another little question: does anyone knows if the HMX free pack contains pro G/B without the upgrade?

    It makes sense that the free RB2 songs will have RB3 features. It was said that all DLC post RB3 would have keys and harmonies where applicable. This is DLC post RB3. Basic deduction?

    I was hoping for (free) Pro Guitar/Bass for the free songs, as well. I wonder how hard 'Visions' is to play for real, compared to other shredtastic songs.

    Nintendo doesn't allow any free DLC. For reference check the free GH DLC, which is nowhere to be found on the Wii.

    I hope that the free songs are available individually, because there is no way I am putting up with Visions or Shoulder to the Plow.

    And I really dislike Johnny Cash or any country for that matter, so a pass for me.

    Johnny Cash + Updated versions of old songs for free = Win in my book :D

    Lots of people mentioning ring of fire (we know it's coming) but personally I would have loved to see more songs with June Carter Cash - am I the only one who thinks 'Jackson' could rival 'under pressure' as top RB3 duet?!

    Really? Because GH5 has free DLC.

    Why no free pack for Wii!?!? I'd gladly pay for those songs!

    Check when the last free content was released. It was a long time ago and the Wii has not received any of the free content released on the other systems since then.

    Wow! Nice surprise on the cash.. Maybe Hurt and Cocaine blues at some point??

    I may get a couple of Cash songs, but I am snatching up Souixsie/Band on the Run [I'm on the PS3].

    I also am excited to play Visions of my keyboard, I guess. But it's good to get the RB2 songs back, that's for sure.

    Will definitely get "Folsom Prison Blues" and "I Walk The Line", not terribly interested in the rest.

    Looking forward to finally having "Get Clean", "Night Lies" and "Supreme Girl" back!

    No on Johnny Cash, and Hurt is better when it's the NIN version.

    But, I can FINALLY have Visions back, and ignore everything else.

    I thought that the Wii had the free Doors pack through the in-game store for the first week?

    Lie, i have 21 free songs on rock band (including still alive) and 16 free songs in guitar hero. And the free pack of the doors, fanboy catch-22? Long time ago too? Another major disappointment from HMX....

    Wow... Just wow (in a good way).

    I am a headbanger from the 1980s but I have been loving the classic rock recently and now Cash. I am not a country guy but I learned to respect Cash's work after watching "Walk The Line". I am on the PS3 so I will have a lot of downloading to do next week. All of the Cash, the free stuff (thanks HMX). I will be picking up Siouxie but not sure about which McCartney stuff I will snag.

    Even though I am not a Country fan for the most part I am happy to see it here. I did not buy any Snoop Dog but I am sure there are those that love being able to play than on Rock Band.

    Good job HMX. What a wat to bring in the new year! :)

    Johnny Cash is great, this will the oldest DLC in Rock Band, and if they are the original recordings, our first 50's songs (Technically Orbisons are the first but they were re-records). I'm kind of low on money so I'll add some of the songs to my DLC buylist, which is around 100 songs still. But its great to get those RB2 HMX songs back, I will enjoy those.

    And how old are those songs? Guitar Hero hasn't had free dlc since before GH5 Neversoft thank you pack? Oumette stuff? Muse, MCR stuff? The Doors songs are the only exception within at least a year. Any example old than that is irrelevant things change.

    Johnny Cash?

    Best. DLC. Ever.

    Hey Guys and Gals!

    Glad you're excited about this pack. I saw some questions so here's some clarification:

    The HMX Pack does not contain keys/harmonies/pro-guitar or bass. It is also only availably as a pack, not individually as singles.

    I'm still wrangling the RBN Tracks list, so stay tuned.

    If there's no upgrades what was the point of releasing it after the export?

    I actually jumped out of my seat when I saw Johnny Cash. DLC is back to awesome!!! Can't wait for when Ring of Fire is released as a single. I would have liked A Boy Named Sue as well but never mind.

    Well, thats a letdown, we waited 2 months for these tracks and we don't even get some harmonies? Oh well, I shouldn't be complaining, they're free.
