    Just when I thought I was out.

    They pull me back in.

    RIP Fake Steven Tyler.

    Never forget.

    Guys, we should all just be thankful that none of these songs are Dude (Looks Like a Lady).

    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?

    ;)

    no, this is 100% proof that 1 of the bands had a 5-year exclusivity deal

    This news is so incredible that I won't even ***** about John Parr's "Man In Motion" still not being made available for PS3! Great job Harmonix! Day 1 for sure!!!

    I was thinking more of what wasn't in GH Aerosmith.

    Wow, where'd that come from? Pretty cool. "Dream On" is a definite buy for me, the others I will listen to and ponder.

    Surprised its a six pack. I don't know Aerosmith well enough, but I'll probably get the pack. I reckon we'll see Metallica in the next few months, once that exclusivity runs out.

    Pack price makes little sense for Europe. It's cheaper to buy the singles individually!

    I'm not a lawyer, but I'm pretty sure that just because one contract says something, that another contract doesn't necessarily say the same thing.

    I was hoping they'd get "Janie's Got A Gun" which wasn't on Guitar Hero:Aerosmith... that would've been awesome to play & sing. Oh well.

    When will Bad Religion get a 6 pack? Seeing that they've just released their 16th album and have a ton of hits over their 30+ year career, I would love to have songs like "American Jesus", "Generator", "The Answer", "Punk Rock Song", "True North" and "Dept. of False Hope" (with the last two coming off their latest CD).

    Nice work, guys.

    Charts (specifically for the new tracks) will determine if this is a pack purchase or a few cherrypicks, but either way I'm definitely buying something. With the addition of "Dream On", RB now has my four year old son's four favorite non-Christmas songs (along with The Jackson Five's "ABC", Bob Marley and the Wailers' "Get Up, Stand Up", and Meat Loaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light").

    Also yes, great pack but, Janie's Got a Gun, Rag Doll, Dude looks Like a Lady, Love in an Elevator I wish were included. A few of the songs I just mentioned were used as DLC for the Full Band GH games so those masters are usable to be separated properly. Maybe now that they are free from
    Activision, maybe we'll see another pack next year, or maybe an Aerosmith song in the next RB game :)

    Nice to see "Sweet Emotion"~! That was the one song I was hoping for from Aerosmith~

    Nice, grabbing all 4 of the old tracks. It feels good to throw money at HMX once again (though I'm sure Captain Morgan will be jealous!) Good get, excited.

    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.

    but WHEN will you pick them up? you're still boycotting DLC, right?

    Pretty safe to say never, I like Bad Religion better than Aerosmith, but I'm realistic enough to know its never going to happen

    As long as a Bad Religion pack has Let Them Eat War, I don't care what else is in it. haha

    Not a huge Aerosmith fan, but I'm not gonna complain. Probably pick up a couple of songs as well. :]

    You are correct, but I was making a pretty safe assumption seeing as how, we've seen it with the "likeness" of No Doubt with that contract being released, and now this timing of Aerosmith perfectly lining up with this release. I can only assume they contracts are mostly the same
    In length, same goes for Van Halen I'm sure.

    Bob Marley and the Wailers' "Get Up, Stand Up",
    Interesting band/song choice for a four year old.

    Keep him away from Rage Against the Machine, or else you might find his playroom wrecked.

    Don't know the last 2 songs, but will certainly get the pack. Hopefully on Tuesday if I can get a card. Dream On is amazing! Hope it's the same live version from the one CD I have. I like that one much better than the studio version.

    You can satiate the Captain by playing Aerosmith in Rock Band with him. It never fails.

    Your son sounds awesome. Might I ask, how did he come to love those four particular songs so much? They're quite varied.

    Also - KILLER week, I'll be picking up the entire pack. I only like about 3 of the songs, but what's the cost of 1 beer to support HMX and have future tracks I may one day want to play?

    This has been my mentality lately - buy extra songs to support HMX. Just yesterday, I spent about $40 on DLC sale tracks and some RB3 DLC that I initially decided weren't worth cherrypicking, but will add some wonderful variety to my library. I only have about 600 songs currently; so I could use more and HMX could use some money :D. I know it won't make a huge difference for them, but every little bit counts.
