Rumor: cracked Rock Band DLC reveals future songs


Over at the ScoreHero forums, user laconic has apparently cracked open a .bin file from the Rock Band "(Arguably) Punk 02" song pack, and discovered a song list for the game, including a large number of tracks that have yet to be revealed.

Unannounced tracks include "Zero" by The Smashing Pumpkins, "Pinball Wizard" by The Who, "Smells like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana, and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones. Songs in the cracked file were reportedly listed without artist names, but we're assuming each is based on the original artists' version (as opposed to, say, Britney Spears' cover of "[I Can't Get No] Satisfaction"). A song called "Still Alive" is also listed, which we can only hope is in fact Jonathan Coulton's song from Portal.

If true, it's a pretty sweet list of songs being added to the game. Of course, until Harmonix tells us officially, we'll keep this list next to the skeptical sauce; wouldn't want to get our hopes up if "Pinball Wizard" doesn't ever make it. Check out the list of possible new songs after the break.

[The original list didn't include artist names, but we've gone ahead and included the original artists of these songs]:


  • Beetlebum

Def Leppard:
  • Hysteria (could possibly be by Muse)

Foo Fighters:
  • D.O.A.
  • Why Do You Love Me?
Grateful Dead:
  • Alabama Getaway
  • Casey Jones
  • China Cat Sunflower
  • Franklin's Tower
  • I Need a Miracle
  • Sugar Magnolia
  • Truckin'

Iron Maiden:
  • Wrathchild

Jonathan Coulton (?):
  • Still Alive

  • Breed
  • Come As you Are
  • Lithium
  • Lounge Act
  • On a Plain
  • Polly
  • Smells Like Teen Spirit
  • Stay Away

If you're keeping score, the tracks listed here would make the entirety of Nirvana's Nervermind available in Rock Band.
