...wait. Isn't YYZ fully instrumental? What will the singer do? Tambourine the whole song?

My thoughts exactly.

If this news it true, this will be an easy "100% vocals on expert" achievement for anyone who doesn't already have it. Sorta like how Silver was on drums...

oh the news is certainly true, u dont think someone would actually spend that much time making up a fake poster like that do you?


As we have announced in the first issue of the Rock Band Community Zine, next week's DLC - for Tuesday, August 26th, will be Rush's Moving Pictures.

Here's the track-list:

Tom Sawyer (Original Version)
Red Barchetta

The Camera Eye
Witch Hunt
Vital Signs

The album, which is comprised entirely of original master recordings, will be available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms and will cost $10.99 (880 Microsoft Points) for the full album, or $2 (160 MSP) for the individual tracks.

well.... I can't say that I don't thinks its weird that we'll have three rush songs now with multiple version..... but meh...

I love Rush and they are great fun to play..... I'll probably be buying this.

I actually never expected YYZ on Rock Band because it's fully instrumental. But, I love the song, so can't complain.

I wish I had waited for the vault edition of Working Man before getting the cover. I don't have enough money, especially with all the new games coming out, to fork over more money for an original of Tom Sawyer and Working Man. I'm fine with my cover.

Dan Teasdale said in the Rock Band Forums:

"One of the secret features that we introduced in the Music Store patch was the ability to play "instrumental" songs. This means that the song itself doesn't have a vocal part, but does have all the other parts.
What does that mean for you? Well, it means you can't play YYZ as a vocalist because there's no vocal part. There's no leaderboards for Solo Vocal YYZ, no difficulty slot for it for vocals (in RB2, the notches disappear and it says "No Part"), and if you try and play YYZ as a vocalist it'll remind you that this is an instrumental track.
Hope that clears things up!"


Don't expect to get any vocal achievement and/or score for YYZ

Haha damn I was looking forward to getting an easy achievement. Cheers for sharing that Dex.

Good. It's one thing to buy an song (Silver) where it's absurdly easy to earn 100%, but it's another thing altogether to essentially allow you to buy the achievement without putting any effort in whatsoever.

Not only that, but now I think it's safe to say we can probably expect more non-vocal DLC songs in Rock Band.

That was my one concern with the game, even before it came out. How are we going to play any instrumental songs, i.e. Metallica's Orion, Van Halen's Eruption, or Eric Johnson's Cliffs of Dover?

YouTube - Metallica - Orion live

Well... now we have our answer :woop:

But they're usually treated like two separate songs, GHII had You Really Got Me, but no Eruption. And their greatest hits CD doesn't have them together.

I still don't think we'll ever see that in Rock Band, seeing as how there's nothing for any of parts that aren't guitar to do.

The delay of this DLC is really showing how spoiled the Rock Band fanbase really is. You've been given 3 (now 4) songs a week every week (except for April Fools day). Is it that hard to wait patiently for this to come out? Sure I was disappointed when I came home from work to not find it there but I'm not complaining, would you rather have a buggy album or a flawless album? Anyways, it's not like Harmonix did this knowing everybody would be busy the next day so they purposefully delayed it. No. They found a genuine problem and wanted to fix it so that people would be able to enjoy it without worry of whatever this technical problem is. Ugh....

nightmare975
08-27-2008, 02:11 AM

Harmonix is loyal to their fanbase, they wouldn't delay DLC on purpose knowing that it is so anticipated.

I think we're also spoiled as 360 owners. PS3 folks always have to wait till Thursday after all...

Unfortuantely not. The vocals are essentially a non track. There are no vocals to play so they're eliminating it entirely somehow. Once again, that's why I think the technical difficulties. HMX probably still has some stuff to iron out regarding the lack of vocals that they didn't anticipate.

Of course it will let you choose it, but your brother will have nothing to do... the song has no vocals. Have him go to the kitchen and make you a sandwich or something.

They still having problem, They have not given a update yet, As far as i know the Market place updates once in the afternoon, (i dont know what time its at) My guess would be around 2PM PST, But i know that the market place updates at 2am PST, so if it was not out tonight, Check tomorrow after noon somtime and if not by 5PST then try again at 2am PST.

"we just want what we were promised"? That's pretty much what "spoiled" means.

One definition of spoiled is "To be eager for"
Another definition is "To do harm to the character by overindulgence"

Well, here are this week's replacement tracks:

Locksley Pack 1 (240http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/media/2007/11/microsoftpointslogosmall.gif / $3)

"She Does" - Locksley (80http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/media/2007/11/microsoftpointslogosmall.gif / $1)
"Dont Make Me Wait" - Locksley (80http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/media/2007/11/microsoftpointslogosmall.gif / $1)
"All Over Again" - Locksley (80http://www.xbox360fanboy.com/media/2007/11/microsoftpointslogosmall.gif / $1)

The songs should be available soon for download on Xbox 360

while im not a fan of this new band i think this is a highly subjective opinion. In a failing market artists are looking for new ways to market their music. Ask yourself this, when was the last time you actually went to best buy or your local record shop and actually bought a CD. Personally for me its been years. i either download them or often purchase them through itunes.

Bands have the right idea looking to new mediums to get their songs released. I enjoy the fact that many up and coming artists have listed their songs on rock band or guitar hero at a modest price (in the case of rock band its usually only a buck a song) and im willing to pay a dollar to listen to some new music and possible have an hour or two of entertainment off a song.

We are starting to see this kind of thing with a lot of other bands too. Metallica will be debuting their newest album through rock band and guitar hero. motley crue has marketed their songs thru two new releases on rock band both costing 1 dollar at release time.

so i guess what im trying to say is that yeah, there is a high likelyhood that you might not like the songs of some random band that is released as DLC, but if for whatever reason you like it, support it because its a new viable option for artists to still get paid for the music they are creating.
