“I had a boyfriend who told me I’d never succeed, never be nominated for a Grammy, never have a hit song, and that he hoped I’d fail. I said to him: ‘Someday, when we’re not together, you won’t be able to order a cup of coffee at the f***ing deli without hearing or seeing me.’”

Boy, was Lady Gaga right. Now the poor bastard can’t even surf the Rock Band Music Store safely, as Harmonix and MTV Games just announced that four of Lady Gaga’s tracks will be featured in their downloadable track list.

The tracks include “Bad Romance,” “Just Dance,” “Monster” and “Poker Face.” In addition, Eric Cartman from South Park will also be making his debut in the Rock Band Music Store with his version of “Poker Face.” Personally, I think he gives Lady Gaga a run for her money.
Cambridge, Mass. – March 9, 2009 – Harmonix and MTV Games today announced that a four pack of songs from pop sensation Lady Gaga, as well as a special Lady Gaga cover by COMEDY CENTRAL’s South Park’s own Eric Cartman will be added next week to the Rock Band Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™.

Lady Gaga joins the more than 400 artists currently available through the Rock Band platform. With more than 1,100 songs available, Rock Band is, without question, the industry leader in providing the best selection of interactive musical content, songs and artists.
