Wait a minute.... HORRY SHIRT! "Do You Believe In Love"? well I just had a total "Oh, that song" moment when I listened to it. Dat bass pedal interlude at 0:43, love it! Gives me a total ELO vibe overall. Not a fan of "Heart Of Rock And Roll" at all. "I Want A New Drug" is okay then.

So one fantastic song (Do You Believe In Love)
One alright song. (I Want A New Drug)
And one song I don't care for. (Heart Of Rock & Roll)

May get the whole pack, considering I get a bit of a discount on that song I don't really like.

Power of Love has a pretty cool Pro solo, I Want a New Drug sounds even moreso focused on lead guitar, I can easily see myself picking that up for the upgrade. Do You Believe in Love? is probably for parties. Heart of Rock and Roll will probably be a pass.

Now we have no idea what's coming next week!

Actually, there was that kind of potential slip of "Men At Work" coming to Rock Band on a HMX blog post about a month back, so I have a feeling folks'll be predicting that constantly when it comes to DLC prediction topics in the future.

ALso, how many people have honest to god, cross their heart and hope to die, seen American Psycho? Because this is getting really overused.

I can't say it didn't get too unintelligible for me to turn off after an hour and a half, btu I've seemingly seen more than anyone else.

The first time I saw it was in 2002. I've seen it about 15 times.

Seen it, was like 13/14 at the time, and it was a few years after the original theatre release.

Skipping everything. Huey Lewis was one of the more boring artists of the 80s for me. Time to catch up on old songs I missed.

I thought Lou Reed was the Lou Reed of rap.

Even though I'm not a fan of "Heart Of Rock & Roll" I just gotta say "DAT KEYS CHART"! Looks great from the preview video.

Not my favorite, but given the harmonies and keys this is really the kind of stuff RB3 was made for.

I think this is the first time that we're getting both a potential Weird Al parody and the other side of a plagiarism case (especially when we have the other song in the case already)!
