That's an awful lot of DLC tracks.

Say It Ain't So. Things were different When You Were Young, nowadays you can't bite The Hand That Feeds otherwise it could lead to Sabotage. Some companies just Can't Let Go though, so I doubt they'll ever just Go with the Flow. These music games always seem to be Flirtin' with Disaster. I Think I'm Paranoid but hopefully Harmonix Won't Get Fooled Again.

What, you can't agree to pay someone x amount and then decide you know what i've changed my mind several years after the fact and ask for most of it back. Any Sensible judge would throw this case out in an instant.

I saw you as an innovator too ElMag..
For shame.
I got a warning for saying what most people have probably thought.

They were about the only songs I could play properly on Rock Band, not singing though, never singing. If it was Guitar Hero I suppose I could have said something about Bobbys race...no wait, that's been done.

I'm more shocked that Charlie Sheen is getting a massive payout from the tv network he called!

@iucidium
I'll always remember the news story Mag and rbt2 got locked by doing puns back and forth to each other, then others joined in, then Bosker locked it. So they both were the innovators of the random pun on this site iucidium, others followed.

@Mag
How could you not have fit the best song on Rock Band in, Don't Fear The Reaper by the Blue Öyster Cult.
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.
