Ugh track packs, the Activision method of DLC. I hope they don't charge 6.25 as activision does for 3 songs.

DLC?!  But isn't that IMPOSSIBLE?!!

I think I'm going to mock Rock Band about this forever, even if Rock Band 2 on the Wii has DLC.

This DLC will probably be in the game disc and be unlocked with a monetary fee.
