Rock Band: 1,000 Songs And Growing

Harmonix and MTV Games promised more than 1,000 songs for Rock Band by the year 2010, and they have delivered with more than a month to spare.

Today Harmonix and MTV Games proudly announced reaching and surpassing the goal they set back in August, with more than 1,000 songs from from nearly 400 different artists available for purchase and play between the Rock Band Music Store and the songs included on the Rock Band and Rock Band 2 discs. This week also marks the 105th consecutive week of new Rock Band DLC releases. Impressive!

"When we launched Rock Band two years ago, we made a promise to create a music gaming experience that delivered on a weekly basis more songs and artists than ever imagined," said Alex Rigopulos, co-founder and CEO of Harmonix Music Systems. "We're extremely proud to pass this remarkable milestone of over 1,000 songs in Rock Band and will continue to innovate and bring more of the best music to Rock Band players all over the world."

With the impending launch of the Rock Band Network Music Store, which will allow bands to upload their own music for purchase, expect that number to explode in the coming months. Enjoy the milestone while you can, cause we're more than likely going to leave it in the dust real soon.

    Anybody got the number of DLC tracks released for the numerous Guitar Hero games? I figure it'd be nice to know, especially if you remember this:

    “Harmonix has 200 people working on these projects, we have 2000 people just dedicated to note tracking, introduction of hardware and software, and so we just have a lot more available to us to continue to dominate the category." - Bobby Kotick

    Makes him sound like a bit of a moron these days, doesn't it?
