    Sweet... although Parallel Universe is probably my least favorite song on Californication.

    Also, this will be my first full pack purchase since David Bowie.

    Nice, By the Way, Californication, and Scar Tissue are some of my favorite Chili Peppers songs. I'll definitely have to pick up the whole pack sometime.

    So excited about this pack, probably the most excited i've been for DLC since the big Bon Jovi pack. Can't wait to sing on Otherside, Californication and Parallel Universe and Fleas bass is always brilliantly charted and fun to play

    I like the Chili Peppers, but are there any keyboards in these songs? I don't remember hearing any, but that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't.

    Nice. Looking forward to Californication and Scar Tissue, and I'll check out the others too. Shame not to get Dani California back. I totally understand how that isn't easy to work out, but I didn't really start liking the song until around the time when RB3 was about to come out.

    Going by the leaks, the following songs have keys:

    Californication
    Look Around
    The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie
    Monarchy of Roses

    Oh yeah, I'm superexcited about the five older tracks. I'm not sold on the new tracks, though.

    Epic pack, but I'd love to pay to get Dani & Give It Away back :S

    Yup, it's already been said on here, but I was hoping for news on Dani and Give It Away. Would gladly pay for RB3 versions. Make it so, Harmonix. :P

    I agree. I'm excited about new Chili Peppers - but I really want to play the songs again that I already bought. This would have been the perfect opportunity to upgrade them too.

    It's the same beef I had with the Soundgarden pack.

    Really excited for By The Way and Californication! Judging by the leaks, INCUBUS SOON FTW!!! Back to RHCP, I really do hope that the giveaway will be extended worldwide for this. I love RHCP but I don't have the money to shell out for the pack, and the last two giveaways did not allow UK RB players to get free 100 songs. :(

    If I get the money, this pack will be an insta-buy!

    Wanted "Can't Stop" more than any of these.

    Unless the charts on the three new tracks blow me away, I expect to cherrypick Californication, Scar Tissue, and Otherside.

    Sucks that my favorite song isn't in it though, really want Can't Stop. Would've settled for Higher Ground as well, but I suppose Scar Tissue is an alright third prize

    ....not much of a fan of the RHCP...so I guess I just saved myself $16...looking forward to the next batch of DLC...

    Love this pack. Parallel Universe is freaking awesome. Insta-buy

    I'll skip this since "Give It Away" is still absent. It means an album in RB3 is still not complete that was complete in RB2. Licensing new songs for the band should of started with the re-license of those old ones.

    So until "Give It Away" becomes available in some form on RB3, I wont buy RHCP songs.
