Rock Band DLC For August 26th
Written By

Another week and some more Rock Band goodies for us to sink our teeth into.  This upcoming week, we will be treated to another full album download.  This time from Rush with their album Moving Pictures.  Each song will be available for the standard 160 MSP ($2), or the entire album can be downloaded for 880 MSP ($11).  The following tracks will be available on the album:

  • Tom Sawyer (Original Recording)
  • Red Barchetta
  • YYZ
  • Limelight (Original Recording)
  • The Camera Eye
  • Witch Hunt
  • Vital Signs

Definitely good news for any Rush fan, but also some very good songs from those that aren't quite fans.  The album will be available to download on Tuesday, August 26th.

I assume Toemass14 is disappointed because he wants songs by his favorite bands, including No Doubt, Nickelback, and *insert talentless band here*. This is some good news, I would have liked to see a whole different Rush album, personally, such as Signals or Permanent Waves, but this will do for sure. For those out there that aren't diehard Rush fans, give Red Barchetta and YYZ a chance, and heck, The Camera Eye is over 10 minutes long studio version, that might be worth your money too. Either way, you can't go wrong with Rush, especially master tracks.

Willace you obviously have a weird taste in music. They have released DLC through pretty much every single music genre ever.

Anyway, can't freakin' wait to get this. I love RUSH!!!!

hehehe @ 15. I was thinking the same thing. I'm stoked cause I really liked YYZ. I'll probably download this whole thing cause rush pwns so hard and for the off chance that we'll pick random songs and the guy singing will be screwed!

@10, how can you call nickleback talentless? theyre new album is abysmal but the long road and silver side up were both masterpieces.

anyway.. what is the difference between the tom saywer on the disc and this one?

and rockband need more metal.. please bring some slipknot, in flames, children of bodom, or at least bullet for my valentine

So, is YYZ going to be all cowbell and percussion? If so, then I'll finally be able to get 100% on an expert song!

This is stupid whats the point of releasing songs twice. They should have released a best of Rush pack, like they did with The Who.

I have to agree with #27, I think it's kind of odd how we can buy the master recording of Tom Sawyer. I wonder why they couldn't have it on the disc in the first place?

I will be getting this though. Rush is fantastical.

@34, you're right... never heard that CD. All I hear by them is four power-chorded songs with 4/4 time signature. Boring.

Everybody got, mixed feeeelings! (Rush - Vital Signs)

I thought they covered Rush really well, and I already got the Limelight cover, but I'll get a few of the others. How did they find the master tracks of several Rush albums a year after they needed to? No reason to complain I guess...

Glad to see some more 80's music in there, which a few idiots decide to shit on making my whole generation look bad.

at#20, Debaser by the Pixies, entirely talky parts and an easier rhythm than Sabotage.

Definitely buying on release. I'm a huge Rush fan, so this is really a plus for me. It's going to suck that /everyone/ will now have only YYZ, and maybe Working Man for the instrumentals. Sad how everyone downs Geddy Lee's voice, when it's pretty epic tbh.
