Say Yes to a five-pack of Rock Band DLC

More On: Rock Band Rock Band 2 Rock Band 3
Way back in October of 2008, I put together a list of artists and songs that were MIA from the band games such as the Rock Band series.  Since that time, a lot of the artists and songs on my list have made it to one of the platforms, but this week finally brings a big one song that I was hoping for within the five-pack of hits from Yes.   The one I wanted was “Owner of a Lonely Heart”, but we got four more classic Yes songs to go with it.

There is a solid chance I will be getting all of these, as the songs are so intricate and equally tough for vocals as well as instruments.  Pricing will be $8.99/680 MS Pts/900 Wii Pts for “Yes Pack 01”, $1.99/160 MS Pts/200 Wii Pts per song and $0.99/80 MS Pts/100 Wii for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade.  The five songs coming on July 26th are:

Yes – “Heart of the Sunrise
Yes – “I’ve Seen All Good People”X
Yes – “Owner of a Lonely Heart”X
Yes – “South Side of the Sky
Yes – “Starship Trooper
Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.
