Go broke on discounted Rock Band DLC this week

Massive Rock Band halfoff DLC sale
You'll probably have the same reaction we did upon learning of the half-off sale Harmonix is holding on over 1,100 Rock Band tracks this week: "Oh, no." More than one Joystiq editor expressed despair in response to the discounts on both individual tracks and artist packs, on Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, because it means an inevitable purchase of too many tracks that can be played not only in Rock Band 3, but in the new Rock Band Blitz, as well.

The situation became even more dire when we remembered that the Rock Band World Facebook app lets you build shopping lists for DLC, which then show up in Rock Band Blitz for easy, convenient purchases. Instant ramen, anyone?
