Queen's unleashing a great 10-track pack for Rock Band next week and that means I have to add more points into my MS points queue. 10 of their greatest hits will be available and they are as follows:
  • Another One Bites the Dust
  • Crazy Little Thing Called Love
  • Fat Bottomed Girls
  • I Want It All
  • I Want to Break Free
  • Killer Queen
  • One Vision
  • Somebody to Love
  • Tie Your Mother Down
  • Under Pressure
Cool, that means I don't have to pick up Guitar Hero 5 for Under Pressure. I love that song so I'm happy to see that and the others make it out next week.

Rock Band Unplugged will get a Blink-182 and The Offspring song for their game next week. They are:
  • The Rock Show - Blink-182
  • All I Want - The Offspring
