    Never heard of Kenny Loggins so will check that out via Youtube. Congrats on managing to work out some Green Day pro upgrades even though the choices were very far from the best imo (If I had to choose 1 from Dookie and 1 from American Idiot of which both were singles, I would have chosen "Longview" and "Jesus of Suburbia").

    Why are you not cutting loose

    Everybody's got to cut loose

    Because I cut loose at a primary schoool talent show in 2005 and all I had to show for it was extreme stagefright. So that'll be fun to revisit all over again.

    Thank you so much HMX for listening to us and releasing something new!

    Love Kenny Loggins! Getting both....hopefully Danger Zone will come someday.

    We could got the themes of two great films today: Footloose and Caddyshack.

    Now we're just missing Top Gun.

    Also, y no "Return to Pooh Corner"? That's been my favorite Kenny Loggins song since I was two.

    I'm surprised, said no one ever.

    Already got GD:RB exported, and unless there's serious clamoring amongst my RB friends, this is a no-go. But judging by the reaction so far, this is another good get. I'm glad those who are stoked get Kenny Loggins. There's a chance I'll grab the Pro upgrades for the two that got them. But probably not "When I Come Around." That song was overplayed so much when it came out, I'm still sick of it, not that it's a bad song.

    Thanks again to Harmonix for continuing to release DLC 5 years into the franchise. No matter whether I like it or not, I'm always happy when this streak continues another week.

    "Jesus of Suburbia" is 10 minutes long. Give 'em a break.

    Will I have to repurchase American Idiot in order to upgrade it?

    Also, never heard of Kenny Loggins.
    You shouldn't have to buy American Idiot to purchase the Pro upgrade. DLC team worked some magic, so you should be good. Holler if there are any issues come release day.

    Also, jealous for your ears to meet Loggins for the first time. He was an 80's soundtrack staple and one of the smoothest dudes on the planet.

    21st Century Breakdown remainders are singles-only for Wii. Too big to be a pack?

    Not too big to be a pack, just some bizarro Wii store sorting issues preventing us from bundling previous DLC with new DLC to make full album DLC. Each console handles their store stuff different and this is just one of those things.


    Also, re: Danger Zone, yes, that is also a song Kenny Loggins recorded. It's an awesome jam and we would have loved to include it with these releases but the masters weren't available. We hunted for them for a good long time and prayed nightly to the Yacht Rock gods, but it wasn't meant to be. I know I, for one, will be enjoying the 2 essential Loggins tracks that we did get. Give them a listen if you're not familiar, then watch Footloose and Caddyshack and your life will be better for it.

    I hope this shows that we do listen to forum feedback and that we'll always respond to community issues when we're able to.
    I never doubted you for a second! No seriously, the gang at Harmonix is consistently awesome. In those rare instances where you have a choice to do something, and choose something that I don't like? That always seems to be because of "forum feedback" too. It's just that you wind up listening to the "wrong" (i.e., not my) side of forum feedback in those rare cases... and I can't be mad about that, just disappointed. But who could possibly still be saying that you don't listen? Nobody but the trolls!

    And I'm really glad that adding Pro upgrades was something you were able (and willing) to do. Same with bumping up Loggins on the schedule. I'd already stated that 2012 DLC was already a success, and anything else would just be gravy ... this is some serious gravy. THANKS!!

    LOG willing, we'll see more of Kenny in the future.

    HMX dudes: "Whenever I Call You Friend" (duet with Stevie Nicks) for next Valentine's Day, please???

    Had an "Oh, THAT song" moment listening to "Footloose", though I've never heard the original before.

    I like the song, but not quite enough to buy it in RB (making it the first time I've gone 4 weeks in a row with nothing).

    Will grab "Footloose" if the "wife" tells me she wants it, otherwise echoing the disappointment at the lack of Danger Zone. Own GD:RB+ so no go on that one for me.

    Listened to the Kenny Loggins tracks. Wow.

    I'm Alright has to be one of the worst songs I've listened to this year. Everything about it either screams obnoxiousness, from the boring guitar work, the awful vocals, and the mind blowingly atrocious duhduhduhduhduhduhs that the song throws at you. It just REALLY doesn't sit well with me at all in any way. Oh well.

    Footloose fares a lot better since it's decent. A great guitar riff, but nothing else about it comes off as fun, especially not the very meh vocals. I'll consider buying it in the future, but at the moment, my money will be only be massively thrown at the Pro Upgrade for American Idiot which is one of my biggest requests of all time. Thank you Harmonix. You rock.

    Footloose
    I'm Alright

    Well done HMX. Thought for sure Green Day would be used as holiday filler instead.

    Footloose is an instabuy. Can't place the other Loggins song, but I'm sure it will be a "that song" moment.

    Also looking forward to hopefully farming a crap ton of Blitz coins by playing Green Day songs next week! Havent played hardly any of them yet, so new song + double song bonuses? Cha-ching!

    Congratulations to Kenny Loggins for making it to Rock Band.

    Well, if anyone wanted to fully cherry-pick Green Day: Rock Band, here's your chance.

    Thanks for shuffling the schedule to get Kenny Loggins this week. It would have been thoroughly disappointing to just get a ton of Green Day and nothing else.


    Not that it's a big deal, but do we know if "I'm Alright" starts immediately with the acoustic guitar, or with the "dreamy" vocal chorus before it kicks in? I thought the latter was originally just for the intro to Caddyshack, but I've heard it a few times that way on the radio over the years.

    Koko Goldstein is smiling in heaven right now.

    Still need some Michael McDonald Doobies stuff, though.

    Hall & Oates and Loggins setlist on Tuesday. Life is good.

    Keep the Loggins coming, music ops guys.

    So I'm assuming that, because the export will show up as purchased in the store, we can just buy pro upgrades them as normal. I exported, so i'm wondering how easy it'll be to buy "When I come around"

    Footloose is such a guilty pleasure to listen to. Looking Forward to it :)
