    Blink-182. Everyone was right! But only Rock The Casbah for me.

    Everyone knew Blink182 was coming.

    Rock the Casbah is really exciting though

    Awesome week just for The Clash – “Rock the Casbah”.

    Will probably pass on the blink stuff.

    Nice predicting skills by the forum in regard to Blink 182. That said, I'm not a huge fan so I will probably skip it.

    But Rock the Casbah is NICE. I was surprised that didn't turn up on the RB3 disc, to be honest. Finally some quality keys!

    Oh, and Doc, we need an explanation for those wacky number clues.

    Rock The Casbah!!!! Finally!!!

    No thanks for the more Blink 182.....

    So my first prediction turned out to be true! Blink 182 it is! :D

    Rock the Casbah!!! Great addition to the already kick ass Clash we have!

    Hard to dislike Rock the Casbah! The Blink songs are fine, though I think RB has released every song I wanted from that band.

    Not a fan of Stay Together for the Kids (one of their whiniest songs), but still a great week, everything for me.

    Blink 182, called it like 80% of the other people in the prediction thread.

    Although, I thought it was going to be:

    Up All Night
    Stay Together For the Kids X
    Always

    Would have also liked some more pro upgrades for legacy DLC but oh well

    Rock The Casbah for sure. Maybe Stay Together For The Kids.

    Awesome, been waiting for Rock the Casbah for a while! And more Blink-182 is always welcome. Thanks HMX!!!

    The Party Song hehe. Didn't ever expect that song in Rock Band. But I'm really disappointed that it's not a bigger Blink pack. I know everyone's gonna complain that they have too much DLC already, but they have so many other great songs in my opinion.

    Knew it. Totally called it.

    Well, don't see how Harmonix can possibly think up of more DLC that I hate. They pretty much released track packs from every band I hate with a vengeance. I was just practically waiting for Blink-182, as the only band I hate more than them is RHCP.

    So, the non-DLC streak continues...

    When are we going to get some Metal? I can't stand RBN being the ONLY source.

    Rock The Casbah! Yay!
    Blink-182... Yay? STFTK is a good song, but I always felt like it really got ruined at the chorus by the loudness war. The other two I am not familiar with.
    (PS3) RBN... That's a lot of metal. Good for you metal-heads. I'll have to listen to all the RBN tracks to see if I like any of it, but it's a good possibility that I won't get any of it. The non-metals are cheap, though, so I might bite on those...

    Am I "that guy" this week?

    Once again, pass on official HMX DLC...(must be like 4 weeks now, if not more)

    BUT F*** YES DOPPELGANGER NEXT WEEK FOR PS3! :D

    The Party Song? Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.... man. Thought we'd NEVER get that. Probably one of my favorites from them. Awesome. Drums will insane, but amazing.

    "Some girls try too hard! (Vagina! Vagina! Vagina!)"

    Rock the Casbah's great too.

    Man, that Party song is gonna be hella challenging, lol! It's so quick!

    One guy, who comes to almost every Rock Band party I have, always asks if "Rock the Casbah" is available yet, and I always have to tell him no, so this is pretty awesome. Might pick up Stay Together For the Kids also.

    Weak week again. Rock the Casbah maybe in the future, but another PASS week for me. Four in a row HMX, c'mon get it together guys!

    The Clash and Blink 182 are both well known for their killer pro-keyboard riffs. I for one am super excited about this announcement.

    How do you have Blink 182 and not pro upgrade everything? I figured they be the easiest stuff to chart.

    Yesterday, people were criticizing my innaccurate math in the prediction thread. I am now fully vindicated, and anyone who wants some math lessons can shoot me a PM.

    I was thinking the same. Always or Carousel.
