    You really got my expectations up for this week - and then exceeded them. WOW. Buying the whole pack + both upgrades + 1 of the RBN songs. Biggest week since Blitz, 2nd biggest week in years ... wow!

    Awesome that a big band still finds life in Rockband, my issue remains the same as it was when GH Aerosmith was released. Where are the modern songs, the ones that made me interested in Aerosmith, the vocalists dreams

    Cryin
    Crazy
    Love in an Elevator
    Janie's Got a Gun
    Don't Wanna Miss a Thing
    Hole in My Soul

    I'll pick up the 3 big songs from the pack at some point though for sure.

    And in anticipation of questions about the live version of Dream On, we don't have a ton of specifics. It's being credited as a recording "from the vault", but we don't have a specific year or album that it's tied to. But it is likely that it's the version some of you may be familiar with from a previous music game.

    Enjoy!

    It was a live version in GH:A?

    Definitely getting all 4 of the old songs, REALLY great stuff, and just in time for me getting a new guitar. Dream On might be a maybe depending on the quality of it, but that's about it.

    Hey, that's a pretty big deal. Good job HMX.

    Wooooo! Looks like everyone in the prediction thread was spot on. Pumped we're getting more than 3 tracks too! I'll be buying them all, thanks HMX! :D

    I'm not even a huge Aerosmith fan, but I absolutely love half of these songs. If this were the end of 2010 or the beginning of 2011, I'd be like "Okay, cool, I guess." But right now, I literally cannot contain my excitement. This is the best thing. In this time in Rock Band's life, this is a gosh-darn miracle. Thank you for this, Harmonix! You are literally the best company.

    The preview trailer is up, and the version of Dream On used is not the Guitar Hero version. I think it actually sounds a little worse.

    I'll definitely get this pack, though, the only song I don't like here is Lover Alot. It'd be nice to see some of their eighties hits, though.

    I think the one available for download in GH3 (only for 1 weekend) and the one in Aerosmith were different ones as well. I know for sure the charts were slightly different

    Well, I was right about the band (most people were) but wrong about the songs (except Dream On) and I am glad I was wrong about it being only three songs! Buying the whole pack!

    I thought it was a rerecording in GH:A, or that's what they said because a lot of the masters from their younger days couldn't be found.

    Great get and glad we got the original version of Walk This Way.

    A live version for Dream On isn't surprising as Aerosmith re-recorded the studio version for GH, by the way what's the source (e.g is it from Classics Live?). I haven't listened to their new album yet so I don't have an opinion on the 2 songs from it.

    As we got this, I really doubt the end will be the end of March.

    Getting the entire pack. First time I've gotten everything in a week since the Iron Maiden pack last May (not including Blitz), which also happened to be a 6-pack.

    Wow. Been waiting for this one for a long long time. Great work HMX! I'll probably grab the 4 classic tracks. Hopefully it sells well enough to aid the possibility of a second pack with Dude (Looks Like A Lady), Rag Doll, Jaine's Got a Gun and Crazy.

    You people should check out the tracks from the new album. They picked out IMO the best two songs from it.

    Guys, we should all just be thankful that none of these songs are Crying,I Don't Want to Miss a Thing, or Amazing

    Fixed that.

    I'm actually happy, I didn't think an Aerosmith pack could make me happy. But this song list is far better than expect, not perfect, but close.

    first of all, congrats to HMX for getting aerosmith and (non-fake) steven tyler in the game. additional congrats and thanks for giving us a six-pack. and finally, thanks for TWO pro upgrades once again.

    i'm not an aerosmith fan but i'll probably pick up a few of these tracks. won't bother with the new ones, but i'll get walk this way (wish it had been picked for a pro upgrade though), sweet emotion and dream on. it's too bad dream on is a live version, but i'm assuming that had something to do with availability of masters. i'll listen to the other 3 but doubt i'll be getting any of them. can't really say i'm excited about these songs, but they're good pickups anyway, and definitely huge songs for the game.

    What do you mean? That's like the only song that I wanted but isn't here. At least we got Walk This Way and Sweet Emotion. I'm so excited for those.

    Awesome! This release by the way is 100% proof that GH exclusive bands have a 5 year period of exclusivity as previously rumored. The game came out in July of 07. So 5 years means July of 2012 the exclusivity ends. They license Aerosmith and it’s been confirmed DLC takes 6-7 months from contact for licensing to being released, so that means July of 2012 license is going to be released Jan of 2013. Perfect. I guess that means we can expect Metallica’s exclusivity to end in March of 2014, as Metallica was released march of 2009, and a Metallica pack to come out September of 2014, remember this post everyone, I’m calling it now :)

    Also, does 6 songs next week mean we've exceeded the maximum DLC pipeline allowance for the month of February, too?
