    This is one of the only times I can ever remember where cherry-picking straight up makes no ****ing sense. I just can't fathom how anyone could cherry pick from this. Get one third of the song, without Pro and without any chance at getting the medley, for more than one-third of the pack price? And why would you even want only one-third of the song??

    Seriously HMX, I would have paid easily twice this pack price for everything you're putting in it. Maybe even thrice this price. I mean, I won't :p But I'll spend that other ten bucks on other DLC :D

    Read his sig, and then read the announcement again. He's on Wii. The medley will only be available on PS3 and Xbox.

    I'm right there with ya :D The ONLY drawback is that it's going to be a very long time before anything even comes close to this level of epic. Forgetting topping it, I legitimately think that may not ever happen.

    ozzy had them too? didn't know that, i got the pack though

    And you're just figuring this out now?

    Anyway...excellent work, Harmonix. If I hadn't caved in and gone with permanent no-fail mode already, I would certainly do so now...
    No...I figured that out years ago when I got my PS2 and threw it out the window! I know what Ill be doing during the 11 o'clock hour on Dec 31! Drinking beer and pretending to be Mr. Peart! =)

    HMX, you did us right!

    Is it wrong that I've never listened to 2112?

    If it is indeed as epic as you folks make it to be I guess I'm happy haven't heard it, this way I only have to wait a week or so before I get to enjoy it in RB YAY

    If I create a setlist; yes, I'm on Wii so even if I bought the pack I can't play it as one song

    No, we'll settle this like gentlemen with a stroopwafel eating contest. While playing 2112.

    Well I didn't listen to it until last week.

    But seriously, this is awesome. We all knew this was coming so it's not as exciting, but hell yes. Can't wait to watch the trailer.

    "Bark at the Moon" and "Mama, I'm Coming Home," the two pack-exclusive songs, had built-in Pro upgrades. "Mr. Crowley" had a normal add-on Pro upgrade.

    I hate the word fathom, but I will agree to this. The only other time cherry picking is pointless is London Calling full album. (Not to the extreme as 2112, but still worthy in its own right).

    Amazing. Simply amazing.
    I'M SO HYPED FOR THIS :D

    No need for first impressions for this week, cuz I already know and love the song.
    BUY IT AND DON'T LOOK BACK :3

    Oh and the full 20 minutes just kicks ASS! AND PRO UPGRADE FOR FREE! AND I JUST BOUGHT A MUSTANG<333333333

    This month is easily the best month of DLC of all time.
    Queen, Rush, Hendrix, Paramore, AND NOW 2112 (still Rush)!

    Harmonix, you guys are super special mega hyper coolio.
    Never forget it :D

    I dare you to top this DLC, HMX. Freaking dare you.

    Not sure how you'll do it, but if you can, my god do I want to see it :D

    I'll probably be hounded to death by the elite but i think this selection is a poor way to end 2011.
    Not a big fan of Rush anyway (i like a couple of tracks) but i found this to be noodly self-indulgent trash. I won't be buying.
    I make no apologies. That is my opinion. nuff said.

    Roll on 2012. Thanks for a good year HMX. Long may it continue.

    So we get a 20min song plus pro upgrades for only 440MSP?

    Awesome, thanks HMX :)

    Thanks so much for this. The pack is presented in the ideal way. And with all Pro thrown into the pack too!

    Can I ask why there is a few week delay on PS3 in Europe? 18th seems like a long delay, I rather thought it might land on the 4th Jan, or at the latest the 11th.
