    Since there are bound to be a few additional questions about next week's Green Day DLC, I wanted to pop in with a few preemptive details here. I'll be responding to further questions as they pop up in the official discussion thread as usual.

    Q: Why are you releasing songs that were previously available on Green Day: Rock Band?

    A: As we've done with several of the Track Pack releases in the past, we wanted to release these Green Day songs as DLC to make them available to as many people as possible. GD:RB was released over 2 years ago and may not be readily available at retail any longer, so offering songs as DLC will give all RB3 and RB Blitz players access to these highly requested tracks.


    Q: Will you be releasing more songs from GD:RB as DLC? Will you be releasing more new Green Day songs?

    A: Yes, we will be releasing the full GD:RB set list as DLC at some point in the near future. Keep posted to future DLC announcements if you'd like to grab songs from Dookie, American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown. We don't have any other new Green Day content on the schedule, but that doesn't mean we can't revisit once Oh Love is out.


    Q: Will the GD:RB songs have RB3 features now that they are available as DLC?

    A: The GD:RB songs will function as DLC just as they did if you had exported them. That means pro drums in all songs and harmonies where applicable. None of these tracks will have keyboard charting since 1) they are pre RB3 files that would have been incredibly difficult to update and 2) from what the Music Licensing team has told me, only one of the GD:RB songs had keys recorded.


    Q: Will "Oh Love" be playable in GD:RB?

    A: No, "Oh Love" is being submitted as RB3 DLC, which means it's not compatible with pre RB3 titles like GD:RB, RB2, RB1, etc.


    Q: Is this Green Day DLC compatible with the same tracks exported from GD:RB?

    A: Yes. If you snag this DLC, it will be playable online with your friends that have exported the same songs from GD:RB. They are compatible in online gameplay and they share the same leaderboards.


    Q: What will happen if I already own these songs via GD:RB export and try to buy them again as DLC?

    A: You will get charged money and nothing will happen. As with other DLC packs and singles, the store will sometimes allow you to repurchase content you already own. Nothing will change in game, and you won't get something cool like double the Green Day listings in your library. So double check and make sure you're not paying money for something you already own.


    Q: How will this Green Day DLC sort in my library?

    A: Strangely enough, this Green Day DLC will sort under Green Day: Rock Band as the source in your library. "Oh Love" is the only track that will show up as DLC, but all other songs should display as if they were part of Green Day: Rock Band.
