    Yea I know that, I'm on here everyday :p But thats not the point. The whole Muse album Absolution would kick arse on Rock Band. I'd like to have these song in ADDITION to hysteria. Muse rock. period!

    Looks like they beat Harmonix to the punch on this one. If this was on RB I'd probably get the whole pack for myself but the only song my friends would know would be Supermassive Black Hole.

    Watch us get a Tribe 3 pack today haha..........:(

    I don't want to bash NSFT, because this is a pretty good start on getting some non-KoC Muse in GH/RB, but let's just say that I'm not afraid to make the obligatory "they better not screw these charts up" comment.

    Anyone think that they'll chart the synth in the chorus of Stockholm Syndrome? *raises hand*

    While it does suck tremendously that we'll only get overcharted guitar sections, at least it's Muse, and they are good songs. I love Exo-Politics. I'll be paying close attention to that one since I can play it on my real guitar, so it will be a good gauge of just how crappy GHIII is.

    On the plus side, this means that Muse does like the idea of having their stuff in these games. And just because GH gets it doesn't mean there's not the possibility of us getting it down the road...look at how many songs are on both games.

    I don't see this as an exclusivity thing... they seem willing to work with whomever. And that's good.

    Muse, while being a great all-around band, is definitely up there in terms of quality guitar work. Makes sense for them to appear in both games.

    this sucks. i didn't know who muse was until i started reading these boards and saw how much people were requesting them. i figured let me get their albums and i listened to them and was very much impressed and understood why they would be great on RB and after hearing this news it's disappointing. Muse quickly became one of my favorite bands. GH sucks i don't like it and HMX needs to get some more Muse songs in this game.

    I'm glad to hear you like Muse. We are getting Hysteria, most likely this month, and as killer_roach said it doesn't seem like an exclusive thing.

    The only downside to this is going to be the overcharting, and the lack of vocals and drums. In all honesty, it's not that bad...at least we get to play something by them, even if it's not on RB.

    at least that's a good thing, i really do enjoy Hysteria. I'm sure we'll get more songs, i'm just upset that GH beat RB to the punch with a Muse pack. But i'm open to all kinds of music and Muse just blew me away and in the other thread i've heard how you guys say that their live performances are amazing. i can't wait until the come to Los Angeles because i definitely will be going to their concert.

    Worst thing is, I can't even buy this. I have the EU version of GH3 (which I never play), but Iceland doesn't have a PSN store.
    I can use the US account to get songs for RB because it's a US game, but I can't get this pack because it won't work from the US store and I can't buy things from the UK store.

    Wasn't there a similar uproar when GH got Peace of Mind? Then RB got basically Boston's entire first album.

    Hell, we already know there's muse on the way. I wouldn't worry about this much.

    Meh. There's plenty of other things to be upset over.

    GH is dead to me, this isn't an exclusivity agreement based on the sources, so who F'in cares.

    Uh...yes and my point still stands. Stockholm is good but black hole...nowhere near as good as Hysteria.

    very good news for GH wich I don't own... expect this to be a heads up for HMX to put them in RB!!!!

    Muse really needs a pack... 3 or 6 songs... for me an album (origyn of symmetry, specially)...

    MUSE ROCKS!!!

    Anything of the new album doesnt make me want too buy it in the slightest.
    It looks like another one of those 1 good song out of 3 track packs.

    Roll on hysteria!

    I'm reaaaally hoping the RB DLC for this week is Muse.

    I boycotted the GH franchise because of the PS3 fiasco but if no Muse comes to RB in the next couple of weeks, I'm buying GH3 again and downloading the DLC.

    Props to go Activision, no cookie for HMX. (I will retract that statement if we get a good announcement today!)

    What the Hell? Activision is not supposed to release quality DLC!!! Doesn't matter..i won't buy for guitar hero. In fact, i won't ever be buying another guitar hero game.

    I wish I could just download "Stockholm Syndrome". Kudos to Activision for recognizing what a great guitar track that would be in GH. "Hysteria" is great, too, thankfully.
