Rock Band Music Store (ALL) DLCs Come To A Close With "American Pie"

by Rainier on April 2, 2013 @ 9:19 a.m. PDT

Featuring an 83-song set list and access to far more music than ever before, as well as innovative new gameplay modes and instruments, Rock Band 3 will change the way fans think about and play music games.

Though this marks the end of new weekly DLC releases, Harmonix plans to continue support for the thousands of active Rock Band fans through ongoing Rock Band Network releases, server support and back-catalog promotions. Rock and Roll never dies, and Rock Band will keep rocking for years to come.

Rock Band DLC Additions for Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii

Singer-songwriter Don McLean’s signature hit, “American Pie,” is now available on the Rock Band Music Store. From McLean’s 1971 album of the same name, this legendary folk-rock track spent four weeks as a number one song on U.S. Billboard’s Hot 100!

The release of “American Pie” marks the end of a 281 consecutive week run of weekly releases of new music content, resulting in a catalog of more than 4,000 playable tracks from music’s biggest artists! Harmonix is proud to release this song as our finale to a 5 year labor of love, and we’ve created a video that celebrates this incredible milestone, takes a look back at more than five years of the award-winning Rock Band franchise and celebrates the people that made this streak possible.

Available on Xbox 360, Wii, and PS3 (April 2nd): 

  • Don McLean – “American Pie”*

(This track will be available in Europe on PS3 April 3rd)


  • $1.99 USD, £1.19 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points, 200 Wii Points) per song
