  • Linkin Park 6-pack, Next Week on Rock Band 3

    Posted on January 5th, 2011 Shawn No comments

    Thanks to a failed test from our friends at Harmonix, we get early news of next weeks DLC. This is great news, in my opinion.  In fact, to me, this is the best music news from Rock Band I have heard since the announcement of Green Day Rock Band.
    SIX PACK OF FAN FAVORITES FROM LINKIN PARK HEAD TOROCK BAND NEXT WEEK!

    Cambridge, Mass. – Jan. 7, 2011– Harmonix today announced that Linkin Park will bring a six pack of songs to Rock Band, available beginning Jan. 11 in the Rock Band 3Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii.

    American rockers Linkin Park will drop some much-anticipated songs in the Rock Band 3Music Store next week. The band, formed in 1996 in California, has sold more than 50 million albums worldwide and holds two Grammy® Awards.  Linkin Park is touring the United States beginning Jan. 20.

    Linkin Park Pack 01 features “Crawling” and “In the End” from their 2000 debut album,Hybrid Theory, which was certified Diamond in 2005. From the band’s second album,Meteora, the pack features “Somewhere I Belong” and “Numb,” the biggest song of the year in 2003 on the Modern Rock charts. The pack also features “What I’ve Done,” from their third album, Minutes to Midnight, which topped the Billboard charts when it was released in 2007. And from their latest album, A Thousand Suns, which was released in September 2010, the pack features “Waiting for the End.”

  • No more Linkin Park in Rock Band?

    Posted on August 16th, 2010 Shawn No comments

    As we watch the ticker above (Ticker deleted because it got rick rolled.) showing the countdown to Linkin Park’s new album, A Thousand Suns, fans of the band and of the game Rock Band learn that the album is not coming to Rock Band game add-ons (aka DLC) as previously announced.

    In a post from forum moderator Joe on the Linkin Park Association web site, it looks like something fell apart at the 11th hour.

    It appears that Linkin Park will not be featured on any upcoming Rock Band DLC after all, as we previously reported a couple weeks back. This is not going ahead and will not be happening, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and wanted to keep you guys up to date on the situation. We will keep you posted on any official announcements regarding ATS and video game features / DLC in the future.

    As a giant fan of both Rock Band and Linkin Park this is quite a disappointment. We still only have One Step Closer in the game, and looks like we will have to wait longer before we get something else.
