On the Rock Band store next week, there's another selection of single tracks to download with two from Staind from their 2001 album 'Break the Cycle' and 2003's '14 Shades of Grey'.

Joining the brace of Staind tracks are one from The Fly's taken from the band's second studio album 1988's 'Holiday Man', and a Grammy-nominated track from Queensrÿche's 1990 album, 'Empire'.

Make the most of these Rock Band updates while they last. There won't be any more after April. Check out the next week's tracks below.

Single Tracks - 160 Microsoft Points each. X = 80 Microsoft Points per track for a Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade O= support for keyboards

  • The Flys – “Got You (Where I Want You) X
  • Queensrÿche – “Silent Lucidity” O
  • Staind – “It’s Been Awhile”
  • Staind – “So Far Away” O

(All tracks are original master recordings)

Look out for them on the Xbox Live Marketplace from February 26th.

Staind! Nice! At least they got some in before the closure.

The week of umlaut and incorrect spelling.

But great songs. So sad Rock Band DLC is ending..

It's Been Awhile is good, but Outside is Staind's best song (I'm by no means a Staind fan and know next to nothing about them, but Outside is one of my favourite songs of all time).

I can see why they picked "It's Been A While", but personally I think that's a pretty disappointing choice. But I'm happy with "So Far Away" though. Glad they added some more Staind before they stop the DLC!

Too much radio rock on this game. I wish they had heavier stuff. Oh well. I do like me some Stained from time to time so I might pick up one or two of them.

After all these years, we finally get Queensrÿche…and it's their lame sell-out song. My hopes for a full album release of Operation Mindcrime are never going to be realized.

WHOO Queensryche! Good song choice.

@12 Already do. I have a fender I use to play Rock Band 3, my IONs have a brain so I can use the drums separate from the game, I am a pretty good singer, and am finally learning to play keys. All thanks to Rock Band. Maybe you should get your head out of your ass before you make yourself look even stupider than you already do.

It kills me that whenever great bands are added it is ballads. Staind's Mudshovel would have been awesome, Queensryche has a bunch of great rockers (or offerings from Cinderlla, Extreme, etc., in the past. It never used to bother me because I figured if it did well the band would put more on later. But now... it really sucks because I know the end is near.

Should've been Eyes Wide Open or Not Again by Staind. Another pass for me, hopefully they'll put out something I want to buy before it goes away for good.

I'll definitely get Silent Lucidity by Queensrÿche (Given a choice, Queen of the Reich would've been preferred). Like #10, I would've loved to have bought Operation: Mindcrime* in RB3 DLC form.

* Operation: Mindcrime got MUCH more play from me than the Queensrÿche Greatest Hits disc did.

Staind are my all time favourite band. To pretty much everyone else I know they are just a two hit wonder.

Ill buy Rock Band 3 when they put a bunch of songs by Horse the Band ;)

But they'll probably just add more LAME bands that viacom owns :(

Pretty excited to get these songs this week, only ended up picking up the REO Speedwagon one for valentines day.

@18 It never bothered me when people say to go play real instruments. It's like me saying go fight a real war to people who play COD and Battlefield. I never really hear that though.. hmm..

@14, I never bought the brain to go with my ions.. do they actually sound pretty decent? I've been curious but suck at drums so haven't wanted to spend the money to really try them out, outside of the game.

the stained cover of pearl jam's black is their best IMO, Wish they'd put more Poets Of the Fall or some Tool on there. Hed pe would be sick too. (wish they were more popular)

It's about time they got Pink Floyd on Rock Band. Never thought I'd see the day. Oh wait....
