    Posted on August 28th, 2009 Shawn 2 comments

    Wow, Harmonix continues to impress with their weekly Rock Band downloadable content. Next week (as I’ve said many weeks before) is one of the best weeks I’ve ever seen for DLC. Some of my favorite bands made the cut from several genre’s too. I will be picking up DLC from at least 4 of the 5 bands (regular readers, can you guess which ones?)
    Here’s the official announcement from HMXSean:

    Default DLC Week of 9/1 TALKING HEADS!

    Hey all,

    Awesome week a’ comin’. Especially if you are as big a fan of the Talking Heads as me (I own every release they ever put out in just about every region on vinyl… just a little obsessed). In addition we’re kicking some new flavor in your ear holes with Avenged Sevenfold, The Jam, Oasis, and Rage Against the Machine. The Wii is getting Tom Petty, Judas priest and more in a epic week as well. And we have not forgotten the PSP – Guns ‘N Roses and Franz Ferdinand. Believe it.
