Aerosmith jumps from Guitar Hero to Rock Band

Now that the Guitar Hero franchise is well and truly dead, a lot of artists that may have been tied in to exclusive deals are now free to do what they want with their music.

Aerosmith is one such band.

After the enormously successful Guitar Hero Aerosmith, Rock Band owners have been chomping at the bit to fret away at Steve Tyler numbers. Now they can with a mix of classic and new songs from the band.

A massive six pack will be available via the Rock Band Network this week, as well as a bunch of other tracks.

Rock Band DLC for 29th January

  • Aerosmith – Back in the Saddle
  • Aerosmith – Dream On (Live)
  • Aerosmith – Legendary Child
  • Aerosmith – Lover Alot
  • Aerosmith – Sweet Emotion
  • Aerosmith – Walk This Way

All songs are $1.99 on PS3, 160 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360, and 200 Wii Points on Wii. You can also get the full “Aerosmith’s Greatest Dimension” 6 pack for the standard $9.99/800 MSP/1000 Wii Points. Both Dream On and Sweet Emotion include Keyboard Support. The live version of Dream On also has a pro guitar upgrade for $.99/80 MSP/100 Wii Points.

Not enough? Well, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners will also be getting much more variety this week. All songs, bar one, go for the normal RB prices.
