    Rock Band now has my two favorite songs of all time: "Light My Fire" and "Love Will Tear Us Apart." Thank you Harmonix. You are the best. Go banana!

    Nice to see so many Pro upgrades. May get some if the charts are good and the songs are fun to me.

    3 pro guitar upgrade songs? Hell yes, definitely getting them all!

    When can we get another batch of legacy upgrades??

    All but Joy Division. That song just kinda bores me.

    LOL! Grand Funk doing Loco-Motion!

    Anyway, big J Geils fan here, love their older stuff. Best party music ever! So, I will put Freeze Frame on my list of songs that I must have... but, I would rather have stuff from older albums.

    Nothing else excites me. I might get American Band some day.

    Oh, I AM surprised. Surprised that we got three Pro Guitar Upgrades this week.

    Getting them all.

    3 upgrades: Good.
    Not knowing what ANY of these songs: Not so good.
    Um, Should listen to them and see if there's anything I might enjoy. Seriously doubt it though. Ok. See you next week

    Edit: Have listened to them. Should have recognized the Loco-Motion, though I had no idea GFR had recorded it. Knew both Little Eva and Kylie's versions though. Too bad it's the only one this week without Pro upgrades. May pick up American Band & FreezeFrame later once I get the Squier - both songs were OK and with the Pro upgrades they might be worth the admission fee.

    Don't worry, as a counterweight to your selection, that's the only song I'll be getting next week.

    I've brought balance to the Force.

    I gotta say, I appreciate HMX not putting out some April Fools Day gag announcement. With that said, this had better not be a gag cause the first couple pages of this discussion are all people excited for these songs, so if it WAS a gag, ya'll better get out there and chart these for real cause now we expect them. :)

    Great songs, but expected something more humorous to be honest.

    Love Will Tear Us Apart is definitely going on my list of songs to get in the future. I have less than zero interest in the other songs.

    No "Friday"?! Didn't have enough time to chart it I suppose.

    Great group of songs, getting them all!!!

    Wow, I'm really psyched to see pro guitar upgrade for Love Will Tear Us Apart, a song I might actually be able to play on at least Medium when I get my guitar.

    I think "The Locomotion" will officially be my least favorite song now, it might not be an April Fool's gag but it makes me want to gag, thinking of the horrid wedding DJ job I had in Florida in the 90s. But I'm sure it will be popular with extremely young Rock Band toddlers.

    #1 burning question: Who will be the first drummer to FC "Freezeframe" with paint splashing in their face?

    Grand Funk and J Geils are musts.

    The Joy Division song I've never heard before the annnouncement and as I am being a little tight with DLC money it's a pass for me. Sounds okay, so I may pick it up later.

    Coolness.
    ""Freeze Frame" is a definate must and will more than likely also get "An American Band".

    Woo. Definite instant buy on 3 tracks. "We're an American Band" is a great party song (and a no-brainer for a game called Rock Band), "Freeze Frame" will be a crowd pleaser, and "Love Will Tear Us Apart" is a song I've always wanted (due to my unnatural love for 80's and alternative/new wave).

    Plus, pro upgrades on the three tracks is gravy.

    Gonna be a good week.

    What about me? I'm not getting it, either. In fact, I only made it to 1:15 and had to turn it off. Glad it's coming for the folks who like it but it's definitely not for me. J. Geils and Grand Funk, however? HELL, YEAH!

    At least HMX has returned to sanity after last week's DF. ;)

    Well Joy Division is more or less required reading so I'm getting that for sure. May pick up J. Geils Band too. Most likely will pass hardcore on Grand Funk, not a fan.

    Not exactly a surprise song list, but I'll gladly buy 3 out of 4. Never been a fan of any version of Locomotion. "Love Will Tear Us Apart" more than makes up for that. I'll buy any Joy Division (and New Order) you throw my way!
