"Please stay tuned for confirmation of Rock Band DLC closer to their release," the representative noted.
Original Story: The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 editions of Harmonix's Rock Band will soon receive such long-requested tracks as Metallica's "Fuel" and Nine Inch Nails' "March of the Pigs" and "The Perfect Drug" along with more tracks from Black Sabbath, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden, and others.
Word of the songs emerged from the latest issue of Official Xbox Magazine, which contained a calendar detailing all of the downloadable content scheduled for March. Each track is expected to sell at the traditional rate of 160 Microsoft Points ($1.99), with the occasional three-song bundle offering a slight savings at 440 Microsoft Points ($5.49).
Shacknews has contact Harmonix for more information and confirmation of the schedule. Read on for the full list.

March of the Pigs? The Perfect Drug?
Holy shit, *NOW* I am buying Rock Band.
Drums on TPD should be hella nice!
(not that I could keep up though...)
It should be interesting. I don't think they've ever played TPD live on account of the drums.
Yeah, even on expert I don't think they could match that one 1 to 1. ;)
This is true. On the NIN site they used to do a section where they answered fan questions. One question that was asked was if they would ever play The Perfect Drug live, and the drummer said something along the lines of they'd play "Anything that wouldn't make his arms fall off afterwards." Effectively saying "no, I would die"
Yep, eff Guitar Hero 3 --- It's Rock Band time baby!
no fucking shit i'm pumped
I predict both of those songs will give me a seizure when I play them on drums... And I will love it.
STEP RIGHT UP
I can't wait to sing and drum on this one.
CRAWL RIGHT UP ON YOUR KNEES!!! I can't stop pumping cum.
I can't wait to play March of the Pigs. I actually threw my arms up in the air when I saw it listed.
I was very pleased to see both those tracks... Now, how about downward spiral as a full album download pls thx.
Honestly, I don't understand how the drums are possible in 'March of Pigs'. It's so fast and unrelenting.
