There will soon be over 2,000 songs available through the Rock Band Network. The milestone is marked fittingly with next week's release of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s seminal album, Are You Experienced. Hendrix is one of over 800 artists who have tracks in Rock Band and Rock Band 2.
"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."
Are You Experienced, will be available as a special Rock Band edition album download Tuesday, Oct. 12 through the Rock Band Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and Wii.
