Rock Band 3 kicked off with The Doors DLC

With Rock Band 3's new keyboard peripheral, it seemed like a sure bet that we'd see downloadable songs from The Doors sooner or later. Harmonix has opted for "sooner," announcing the release of twelve Doors tunes on Rock Band 3's October 26 release date.

Three of the songs, "Light My Fire," "Riders on the Storm," and "Touch Me," will not only feature downloadable Pro Guitar and Pro Bass functionality, but will also be free until November 1. The rest of the songs, which have yet to be officially priced, will be designed for traditional Rock Band guitars (and Pro drums and keyboards), and will be released as a nine-pack on October 26. After November 1, all the songs will be available as a twelve-pack. All this is part of a promotion for the November 22 release of the new Doors "Live in Vancouver 1970" CD set.

Break on through to the other side of this post (we're so sorry) to see the list of tracks. Spoiler: yes, "L.A. Woman" is in there, for those of you desperate to have an excuse to chant "Mr. Mojo risin'" in your living room. [Update: Pricing info added.]
