Rock Band Getting 2,000th Track Next Week

Posted on October 10, 2010

MTV Games and Harmonix have been churning out weekly Rock Band DLC since the series launched in November 2007. Nearly three years later, the in-game music catalog has hit an impressive milestone. Next week, when Jimmy Hendrix’s album Are You Experienced is made available for download, there will be more than 2,000 songs playable within the Rock Band catalog, between the game’s on-disc tracks and DLC songs.

“The success of our song downloads has afforded us the opportunity to approach Rock Band as an interactive music platform and reshape the way gamers think of expansion content,” said Paul DeGooyer, senior vice president of electronic games, music and programming for MTV Networks. “Our commitment to weekly releases, disc export, forward compatibility of downloads and the launch of the Rock Band Network were milestones in the development of Rock Band’s vibrant digital business. Now, with the release of our 2,000th song, we are reaffirming our commitment to present new music every week – and with the new features in Rock Band 3, there will be more ways than ever to experience it.”

Even if you aren’t that interested in music games, you have to admit that Rock Band has set an exceptionally high bar for post-release support.
