    Okay I am seriously considering picking up the American Idiot pro upgrade. Looks like a solid week all in all for all parts

    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!!

    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.
    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).

    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.

    I has a sad =(

    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

    Oh, and RBN will be bringing the St. Elmo's Fire theme as well. It's movie theme week next week!

    Yes, that's finally gonna be released? Perfect timing! It's like a themed week at Rock Band!

    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 :)

    Oh, 21st *is* a full album?? That's weird as hell. So the 6 songs that were released as Green Day 01 and 02 three years ago are effectively seeing their second store release. That's kind of strange. Too bad there's no option for someone who has the two packs from '09 to just buy the remainders of the album.

    Yes it is. Check the OP. The six songs released with Green Day 01 and 02 are included when you purchase the album.

    YES. I second that emotion. "Whenever I Call You Friend" is so good. I want it, since we can't get "Danger Zone".

    It will take quite a while to listen to all of these. As of now, I may hit Wikipedia, see what the biggest hits are, and start from there. However, given that the only GD songs I like thus far are "Brain Stew" and "Know Your Enemy", and I have both...

    Once again proving that if the public wants it, and you are ABLE to do it, you give it to us.

    It's really good to have this information, so people will know not to keep begging for it. Of course, people are allowed to dream that the masters will be found, someday.

    I'm sure there are many songs that are in this exact same situation, but I assumed there was some legal reason why you were unable to let us know which specific songs were impossible to add to Rock Band, for technical reasons. That was always going to be my first question for the Harmonix gang, when I finally see you in person: "which popular songs have you tried to get, and been held up solely by unavailable masters"?

    That will still be my question for you, someday, assuming that you aren't ever going to be able to publish an extensive, official list here.

    Love the Kenny Loggins but we really needed "Nobody's Fool" from Caddyshack II as well. That song is very awesome.

    LOL! I guess you just had to be alive at the time it was released to really enjoy the song. Love your reaction :) The duhduhduhduhduhduhs have been going through my head since the announcement.

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.
    (chest heaving as I hyperventilate)

    OK. I am so very pleased to hear that you tried for DZ. Any "live" versions available? Want me to try and break into Rick Rossovich's basement or something?

    The Yacht Rock gods are a fickle crew. I believe that a sacrificial offering of Christopher Cross' "Ride Like The Wind" as DLC would sate them, however.
