Rock Band 4 is bringing back popular songs as DLC to celebrate the franchise's 10th anniversary

Lady Gaga, Blue Oyster Cult, and other artists will have tracks re-released.


Correction: This report erroneously stated that all twelve of this month's songs would be available today, for a combined price. The pack released this week is the "More Metal One" pack, which includes three of the twelve songs (Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth, Slipknot) for a combined $5.49, or $1.99 individually. The other tracks will be coming throughout the rest of the month, with their own price tags attached. Shacknews regrets the error.

Original Story: Rock Band developer Harmonix announced that several popular tracks will be coming to Rock Band 4 as DLC to celebrate the franchise's 10th anniversary.

All tracks come from on-disc track lists from throughout Rock Band's history, 12 of which will be available in the Rock Band 4 store on Thursday, January 5. The full list is available below.

Individual songs cost $2 each. You can get all of this month's offerings in one fell swoop for $5.50.

Harmonix plans to keep the party going all year long. "Stay tuned for more of your favorites coming to the DLC Library in the coming months," wrote developers in the announcement blog.
