The new Mötley Crüe single, “Saints Of Los Angeles,” is being made available as a playable track in Rock Band, a first in the world of marketing music through videogames.
The song, from the band’s upcoming album of the same name, will be available for download for $.99 on April 15 via Xbox Live Marketplace and on April 17 via the Playstation Store
Coming out through the band’s own Mötley Records, Saints Of Los Angeles (the album) is the first album in nearly a decade to feature all four original members of the veteran hard rock outfit: Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx, Mick Mars and Tommy Lee.
With the addition of "Saints" to the Rock Band library, there are now more than 80 tracks available for download in addition to the 58 tracks in the original game. In three months since its release, gamers have purchased more than 6 million downloadable songs for Rock Band since its launch on November 20, 2007.
It goes without saying that the people at Harmonix and MTV Games are very, very happy. Like, Tommy-Lee-driving-his-boat-with-his-willy-while-Pam-Anderson-stands-naked-nearby happy.
