December Rock Band DLC Removal

By Michelle Balsan, 1 year ago
Many of us look forward to this time a year due to being given things. Unfortunately, due to another round of licensing expirations, Harmonix, sadly, has to be the one to take something away (Not that we're implying they're grinches or anything!).

As always, plenty of notice is being given with regard to the tracks being pulled, a full list of which is included below along with download links. All of the tracks cost $1, with the exception of "Electric Six Pack 01", which includes "Dance Epidemic," "Gay Bar," and "I Don't Like You" and costs $2.99, and "Lights Resolve", which is free.

• Dinosaur Jr. – "Pick Me Up"
• Dinosaur Jr. – "The Wagon"
• Electric Six Pack 01 (download here)
• Electric Six – "Dance Epidemic"
• Electric Six – "Gay Bar"
• Electric Six – "I Don’t Like You"
• Joan Jett & The Blackhearts – "Fake Friends"
• Just Kait – "U Suck"
• Lights Resolve – "Dreaming of Love"
• Morningwood – "Best Of Me"
• Morningwood – "Sugarbaby"
While DLC removal is always sad news, this one is even more so. As it turns out, Lights Resolve's "Dreaming of Love" is a free track, so the following achievement will be discontinued if you don't download it as a result:

Rock Band 3Live Free or DieThe Live Free or Die achievement in Rock Band 3 worth 46 pointsBeat all of the free downloadable songs for Rock Band.

This isn't the first song that's gone missing that is needed for this achievement, as Vesuvius' "Promised Land" was pulled last May. Just as in that case, if you download the song before it is delisted, you won't have to worry about losing access to the achievement. You can also find a friend who has it and play it at a later time. If, however, you're concerned about the achievement becoming difficult for you, just go ahead and grab the track yourself by clicking on the link above.

These tracks will become unavailable on December 23rd, so grab the ones you want while you can!

Thanks to all of the community members that sent this news in!
