The record contained two of Winters’ biggest hits – “Free Ride” and “Frankenstein” – both of which are headed to the Rock Band Music Store with full support for keyboards. A Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade will also be available for the instrumental jam, “Frankenstein.”

More than 25 years later, metal band KoRn was getting its first taste of mainstream success. “Freak on a Leash,” off of 1998’s Follow the Leader, was one of the band’s most successful singles. The group found success again with its single “Falling Away From Me,” from 1999’s Issues, which peaked at number one on the Billboard charts.

Due to ongoing holiday store outages and related submission issues, the content below will be released on PS3 in Europe (aka SCEE) on 1/25/2012. Some of this content was previously announced for 1/18/2012 and we apologize for the confusion resulting from the holiday schedule.

Rush's 2112 (from 12/31)
Hall & Oates Pack 01 (from 1/10)
KoRn and The Edgar Winter Group (from 1/17)

The DLC announced on 1/20 should release in 1/25 as scheduled, adding 4 weeks of DLC to the SCEE store.

Something for the freaks on a leash as well as the classic rockers.

I will be snagging them all but am especially looking forward to Frankenstein & Freak on a Leash.


Snow in Texas story - Edgar Winter - He was born in TX.

Dragnet - Korn - Korn was formed by the members of a band called LAPD.

Deadliest Catch - Edgar Winter - My favorite person on the show was named Edgar.

Raymond Vid - Korn - The drummers name is Raymond.

    Yay, Edgar Winter Group! Korn isn't too bad either, but I'm not enough of a fan to pick those two key-less tracks up.

    Hint explanations:

    Hint 1: The quote is from The Colour out of Space by HP Lovecraft (a horror story, which hints to Frankenstein), and the colored letters form the names of the Power Rangers from Power Rangers: The Movie, which had Free Ride in it.

    Hint 2: This is a double Caesarian shift code! (the 'emperor' part alludes to it. Heaven means the regular letters are shifted by 7, Hell that the italicized letters are shifted by 6.

    The text as a whole is a quote from the movie Queen of the Damned, which featured a lot of songs by Korn's Jonathan Davis. The italicized letters, when decoded, are the names 'Al Simmons' and 'Jason Wynn' in reverse. These are two main characters from the movie Spawn, which again featured Korn on the soundtrack.

    Psyched for the Edgar Winter Group tracks!

    Hint explanations:

    Hints 1 and 2 were posters for the movies "Take Me Home Tonight" and "Back to the Future." They were placed next to each other in subsequent posts because the two would eventually need to be joined.

    Hint 3 was a link to "Music," which just meant to look at the soundtracks of the two movies.

    Hint 4, "What's Your Name," was the final clue. This was a clue to look for songs within each movie's soundtrack that featured names in the titles. Two such songs were "Johnny B. Goode" (Back to the Future) and "Bette Davis Eyes" (Take Me Home Tonight). Combining the names gives us Jonathan Davis, the lead singer of Korn.

    What? I would have never guessed these!

    Getting it all.

    And as for that guy who started the "Rock Band 4 should be M-rated" thread:

    There's the Korn.

    Will definitely be buying the Edgar Winter songs, been waiting for those for a while now, might get Freak on a leash even though that song is a bit weird for my liking but played it quite a bit on GH WT.

    Not a fan of that Korn song when I played it in GH:WT. Will give it another listen when the full charts are up, next Tuesday.

    Never heard of Edgar Winter Group, but initial responses deem me hopeful.


    Both Edgar Winter Group songs sound delicious to me! It's been a while since an unkown artist came to Rock Band, completely blowing me away.

    Edgar Winter Group? I've heard of that band before but I've never actually listened to them. ON YOUTUBE!

    Ah, finally some good Korn. I'm getting these ones for sure.

    Well, Freak On A Leash is decent, albeit an extremely low priority. No idea who The Edgar Winter Group are.

    Sweet, a surprise week!

    "Meh" on the Korn, but the two EWG tracks are delicious and very much appreciated.

    I can cross EWG off my list. Foghat gets bumped up a spot.

    AWESOME - I have been wanting Edgar Winter since RB3 announced the keyboard addition. Now i'll actually have to use the keyboard as a keytar as Edgar does in concert.

    Isn't Frankenstein a GH-repeat? Might get it because of the Pro Guitar though. KoRn - No Pro No Sale.

    I managed to pull Korn out of Queen of the Damned, and someone came up with the movie Spawn as well, but missed that it was also a Korn connection.

    Manget, you are an evil genius. Those hints were complicated enough to be unsolvable but still totally fair.

    I'll be getting Frankenstein and Freak on a Leash soon if not immediately, for the others I'll have to poll my bandmates.

    Whoa. Korn REALLY surprised me. Awesome news, and awesome tracks! I've been wondering why we've only had Word Up until now. Will get both tracks!

    I have no idea who The Edgar Winter Group is. I'll have to listen to those tracks.

    If you've seen any movies the past 20 years which are set in the 70's, you've heard the Edgar Winter Group songs before. Both include memorable guitar and/or keyboard riffs.

    I have to admit, I didn't recognize EWG by name, but I listened to both and recognized them. Super stoked for this week, buying everything.

    I'm the one who found the Spawn clues, and I even looked towards the movie for more clues, but I looked at the actor names instead of the soundtrack (don't know why I didn't think to do that).

    Edit: I only can get one right now, since I just got the H&O pack and, since I favor getting new artists over existing, I am going to get one of the Edgar Winter tracks (probably Frankenstein)

    Nice to see some more Korn songs! Hope this opens the door for some of the better tracks later.

    This will be the first new release songs I have bought since The Darkness.
