Three power singles hitting Rock Band DLC next week

Now this is what I am talking about.  Harmonix is bringing two power ballads from the 80’s along with one of Hoobastank’s most popular songs to Rock Band Music Store next week.  Joining Hoobastank's “Crawling in the Dark” will be Cutting Crew’s classic “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” and Whitesnake’s “Still of the Night”.  Needless to say, I will be investing some points to spruce up my Rock Band music collection next Tuesday. 

All three songs will be priced at $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts with “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” costing an $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii Pts for the Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade.

Available on August 7th, 2012:
Cutting Crew – “(I Just) Died in Your Arms” O X
Hoobastank – “Crawling in the Dark
Whitesnake – “Still of the Night” O
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.
