    I was expecting Machinehead but Everything Zen is a sweet surprise!

    Here's to hoping that this sells well and we'll see more Bush in the future!

    Ahh, neither of the two I wanted most, 'Swallowed' or 'Glycerine', but I'll probably pick up 'Comedown'.

    Y'know, I just listened to Machinehead, and aside from some sequencing at the end, I can't for the life of me hear any keys.

    Not bad, but not exactly good either.

    Also, I loled at this in the blog description: "riding on the success of the 90s grunge movement"

    That's putting it lightly.

    Message me if you want to play on Tuesday morning. Actually, don't.

    Ha! I gotta find that punk on RockBandAide who gave me such attitude when I predicted that the new single wouldn't be in the three pack. Nice selection of tracks.

    Edit: Machinehead was actually on my RB4 wishlist and I had it down as a key-less song. Since it does apparently have keys, I'll be interested to see where they are.

    I'm happy with the song choices. I thought Sound of Winter would be in it for sure.

    Same here. And I'm glad it's not there (decent song, but not needed). Everything Zen is my favorite one from Sixteen Stone so YAY!

    Love the picks HMX. Another band that I wouldn't want the job of narrowing down to 3 songs for the game. Hopefully it sells like hotcakes and we get another 3 pack in the future that would include "Little things that kill". Thanks HMX, DLC has been on a serious roll lately! Love this friggin game!!!!

    I like this pack a lot, though I may be a dissenter in that I wanted "Sound of Winter" to be one of the songs. I think that's a surprisingly good song. But I'll be getting the whole pack.

    three very good songs, but none of them scream at me to buy them. This week is a skip.

    I guess MachineHEAD was what Henry was referring to on twitter regarding being careful with the search terms. Unless he wasn't being a perv and meant the band Machine Head. 2 more to cross off the GH list.

    Worldwide success? Maybe I'm missing something, but I never hear other Bush songs than Glycerine on the radio. I know the album was a success in the United States and maybe the UK, but in the rest of the world? Really?

    Zzzzzzzzzz

    The only Bush song i would have to have it "Chemicals Between Us", which i would have been really stoked for :)

    Maybe we will get another great Valentine's pack like last year. It was the 2nd best week of DLC we had in 2011. Make it happen again HMX!!!! :)

    Didn't think I was getting any of it, but after listening to the songs they all were "Oh yeah, I remember that song" songs. So it looks like I'll pick up all three.

    I'm glad that the Bush fans are happy. It isn't for me though. I want to be supportive but at the same time, I'm relieved that I don't have to worry about it every Friday anymore :)

    Looking forward to the VDay pack. If it's as good as last year's, I'll be a happy camper. On with the show!

    Awesome. I would have preferred Chemicals between us to Everything Zen, but this is still an awesome pack!

    Yeah, you are missing something. 1994-1995 radio was ruled by the five singles from this album, not just Glycerine.

    This is a great pack! I just wish it was a 5 pack so it could have included Little Things and Glycerine too. Maybe (Hopefully!!!!) they'll be in another pack someday with Swallowed, Greedy Fly, and Mouth.

    Great pack.

    We still need more 90's artists!

    No HMX DLC this week, but a number of RBN songs for me. Hooray for RBN! :D

    Edit:
    The 90s were a time I didn't listen much to the radio, so I never really heard Bush much, and I've never actually heard any of these songs. A couple sounded decent, so they will go on the list of "buy when I have extra cash" list.

    Ehhh bush! Nice choices, and probably the most obiovus ones. Comedown and Machinehead were quite fun on GHWOR, even if somehow easy.

    I thought that "the sound of winter" would be included, but Everything Zen is a much better choice.

    I should say, I'm Dutch and I can honestly say the only Bush song I ever hear is Glycerine.

    Just about all of their albums made the album top 50 in the Netherlands as well, so I'd say they sell well enough here. Everything Zen also made the single top 50, but like Glycerine, never got past the 40th spot or something, so they're definitely not a successful single band over here.

    Their videos got a lot of airplay on MTV Europe back in the day, though.

    Also, count me among those who can't really hear any keys/synth in Machine Head.

    FYI, the song's title is just "Little Things." As a drummer, I was hoping for that one, too, just for the intro. Ah, well. Next pack.

    I'll be buying all 3. I'm not a huge fan of the band but these songs take me back to my Junior year in high school when this album came out and I do like them. They should be fun.



    Why am I not surprised that Lowlander2 has already registered a complaint?

    They sound like mediocre Nirvana/Pearl Jam clones to me, not as bad as Creed though.
