With today's release of Don McLean's "American Pie", Harmonix is ending its weekly releases of DLC songs for the Rock Band series.
The tale of the tape is astounding. 281 consecutive weekly releases, and over 130 million songs sold through the Rock Band store since 2007. In terms of cultural impact, its effect has been immeasurable.
I was late to the Rock Band party. My household had done Guitar Hero on the PS2, but I had downplayed that sort of thing when we moved to the 360 due to the fact that we lived in an apartment and we already did enough stuff that would annoy the neighbors. But I got a kickin' deal on a full The Beatles: Rock Band set, a couple extra mics, and the base Rock Band game. The rest, as they say, has been history.
