Rumor: Upcoming Rock Band DLC discovered

Dustin Burg

L33t haxor laconic over at the ScoreHero forums fired up his data mining program, poked around the latest Rock Band DLC's data files and discovered some newsworthy goodness. He found that within' the DLC's data file was a list of current Rock Band DLC as well as (surprise!) a few tracks that haven't yet been announced. Songs including "Pinball Wizard" and "El Scorcho", oh my!

After the break, we've posted what we feel to be the best guess to what the unannounced and unreleased songs are which was compiled by Xanthous over at the Rock Band forums. We say best guess because the DLC data that was found only listed the song names and not the artists. As a result, there are some song titles that could be associated with a few different bands. Also, remember that this list is by no means official (even though data like this has predicted future Rock Band DLC) and was discovered through semi-hacking means. Then again, we're rather confident that these songs will get a Rock Band release seeing that Harmonix's hmxsean already acknowledged the leak saying that these tracks are "unconfirmed and subject to change" and to "stay tuned for confirmation of Rock Band DLC closer to their release". An official statement that sounds more like an "oops, we're bad at keeping secrets" remark than a flat out denial.

Anyway, quit reading and get clicking! There's rumored Rock Band DLC to analyze after the break ... now go!
