    I can't stand Second Chance anymore and the others I could care less, so pass for me, but I will get The Massacre for sure.

    It's no Iron Maiden, but "Second Chance" will be a great deal of fun on vocals. I don't know if I've heard the other two songs, will have to check them out later.

    What a shame.

    Last DLC for SCEE for a long time... And it's... Well.

    Edit: Might be another week it seems

    Hey look, a 3-pack! Wasn't expecting that!

    I wouldn't recognize these unless I listen to them.

    There's also been a lot less songs this year.

    It's awesome that we are finally getting more Shinedown! I only hope we will get another pack in the future featuring some of their older hits along with Sound of Madness:

    45 (This is a MUST have for Shinedown!)
    Fly From the Inside
    I Dare You
    Heroes
    Burning Bright

    However, I will definitely be picking up the whole pack to show my support for the band! Thanks Harmonix!

    Not a fan but they are on the radio constantly here in Charlotte so I am guessing they are pretty popular and alot of people will be happy about this.
  • nascargo19nascargo19 Road Warrior

    This easily leaves Sound Of Madness and Fly From The Inside for a second pack. (Second Chance pack?) The third song would not matter as long as we got those two.

    Probably the last one I'd ever want from them.

    Never heard of them....took a listen. Pass for me and my list not all that 'catchy'.

    Comes from one of their album names, Sounds of Madness, from which Second Chance and The Crow and the Butterfly are from. I find it a bit refreshing when packs are named something else than Pack X.

    I can think of some modern returning acts that deserved a pack first, but I can think of a ton more that havent even made it to Rock Band yet

    Mediocre week for a band I believed we had already covered with its one popular single. Oh well

    Gonna do guitar solo this week because I don't really wanna deal with the stress anymore

    What's up with Bully needing to wait an extra two weeks? Can someone (HMXHenry?) awnser that?
    There was an issue with the DLC submission. Sony actually has a 4 week test period, so they've actually agreed to rush this to make sure there's only a 2 week delay. These issues are incredibly uncommon and we'll double down to make sure delays are less likely in the future.

    Another vote for "never heard of 'em," but them I'm an old codger anyway. Since every song offers keys, I'll give 'em a shot.

    You, I like. Completely agree. :) Good pack, but might have been better.

    That feel when Shinedown is a repeat band and nobody on the forums remembers

    Rock Band is old and I feel old and that feels bad

    Hehe, wow, you're right, Shinedown already has two songs in the game. Oh well, I didn't buy them so I don't remember.

    Sorry, Riles! :)

    I remember.

    Rock Band DLC is amongst the few things I strongly remember from the last 3-4 years.

    Might get Second Chance but not a particularly exciting week for me.

    It's gonna be a slightly above average pack. Better than the 3DG one, The Crow and The Butterfly was unexpected. I liked that song when I heard on the radio some months ago.

    The sad thing is that I expected something really epic before the SCEE switchoff. Whatever. I have so many songs to get from the back catalog. ;)

    AWESOME!!!

    Thanks so much for these great songs.

    Going to be some of the best vocal tracks in the game.

    Shinedown is so underrated, Brent Smith has one of the best voices ever to sing a song.

    This has been on my wish list for a long time.

    Now if we can only get some Halestorm to balance out the greatness with some great female vocals.

    Thanks again for more Shinedown!

    Yeah. This is Shinedown. Not 3DG.

    I'd rather have replaced "Second Chance" with "Sound of Madness," but otherwise, I agree. I don't know about the whole pack, though.

    I'm not a huge fan of the band overall, but those two would be instant buys. The drums on "Sound of Madness" are awesome, if not that difficult, and I'd love to try that one out on vocals as well.

    Agreed. I'm not baffled with the picks for the songs, but I will admit to being disappointed.

    But...you are old, aren't you? ;)

    Having already said that I would have preferred different song choices, I'm not going to beat that horse anymore, but:

    Thank you to Harmonix for continuing to put out DLC every week without fail. You guys are awesome. I will at least be buying "Crow & the Butterfly," if not the whole pack.

    I am 50 and they are just about my favorite band.

    Going to see them live next week in S.F.

    They are traditionally styled rock and roll with modern riffs, and dynamic vocals.

    Every word can be understood, and the songs actually tell a story, what a concept!

    Check them out, they are truely a shining light in a sea of crap which is modern music.

    I was thinking this too.

    So many people saying never heard of them and they're part of the game already. Sure it's optional DLC, but that just strengthens my theory that hardly anyone listens or gives music they aren't familiar with a shot >_____>
