Rock Band DLC to cost me next week with Maroon 5 and Puddle of Mudd

Oh Boy, Harmonix is going to get some cash out of me next week, as they are releasing new Rock Band DLC from two of my favorite groups. Puddle of Mudd and Maroon 5 will both be getting the three-track DLC treatment, with PoD making their debut with the Rock Band franchise. All six songs are radio hits, so don’t expect any deep tracks here. In fact, if they bleep it out of the lyrics, I guarantee you that major league F-Bombs will be dropped during many a rendition of PoD’s “She hates Me.”

Pricing will be the traditional $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for the Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade, $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii PTs per song and $5.49/440 MS Pts/ 550 Wii Pts for either the Puddle of Mudd Pack 01 or Maroon Five Pack 02.

Maroon 5 – “Misery
Maroon 5 – “This Love”X
Maroon 5 – “Won’t Go Home Without You
Puddle of Mudd – “Blurry
Puddle of Mudd – “Control
Puddle of Mudd – “She Hates Me” X

Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
