More Rock Band Tracks to be Delisted Soon

By Michelle Balsan, 3 years ago
As we explained back in April, and then again in May, licensing for music games, such as the Rock Band series, is a tricky business. Tracks are often licensed for only a set period of time. As a result, once that licensing period expires, the tracks in question get pulled from the Marketplace. Compared against the entirety of the Rock Band catalog, the number of delisted songs is tiny, but it still has an impact on those who want those tunes in their libraries.

Unfortunately, the time has come for another round of delistings. First up, we have a single track getting delisted on August 28th:

T.Rex - "Bang A Gong"
Next up, we have a long list of delistings coming up on September 30th. This is mostly because a bunch of songs from a single band are leaving the Marketplace at once.

The Janitors - "Get Your Rock On"

Locksley Pack 01
Locksley - "All Over Again"
Locksley - "Don't Make Me Wait"
Locksley - "She Does"

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Snow (Hey Oh)"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Tell Me Baby"

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magic Album Pack
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Apache Rose Peacock"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Blood Sugar Sex Magik"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Breaking the Girl"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Funky Monks"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "I Could Have Lied"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "If You Have to Ask"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Mellowship Slinky in B Major"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "My Lovely Man"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Naked in the Rain"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Sir Psycho Sexy"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Suck My Kiss"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "The Greeting Song"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "The Power of Equality"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "The Righteous and The Wicked"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "They're Red Hot"
Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Under the Bridge"
Don't forget that once you've paid for a track, it's yours forever. This means that if you've downloaded a track previously, but have since deleted it, you can always access it by going to your download history. Unlike May's delisting notice, none of these tracks will affect your ability to earn an achievement, so picking any of these up would be based solely on your desire to have the song in your collection.

Thanks to all the community members who sent this one in!
