Rock Band DLC continue its swan song with singles from Chili Peppers, Blink-182 and A-AR

As we continue to count down the demise of Rock Band DLC in April, Harmonix is giving us three more singles from the previously released Rock Band Blitz for DLC next week.  As our own Cyril Lachel has said repeatedly, unless you only want  one of these specific songs, invest the 1200 MS Points for the entire Rock Band Blitz game and its 20 track catalog instead of buying the songs piecemeal.  However, if you only want these songs, you can pick them up for  $1.99\160 MS Pts\200 Wii Pts per track as well as the option to add on Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade for $0.99\80 MS pts\100 Wii per song.
 
Here are the tracks Available on March 5th, 2013: 
  • All-American Rejects – “Kids in the Street” O
  • Blink-182 – “Always” O
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers – “Give It Away” O X
Tracks marked with “O” feature support for keyboards; tracks marked with “X” will offer Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
