"Don't forget that we're celebrating when we hit 2 million fans by announcing DLC artists early! If we hit 2 million by 9/19, we’ll announce FOUR artists coming to Rock Band in the next few months. If we hit it by 9/26, only three artists. By 10/3, two artists. And if we hit it by 10/10, we’ll announce one artist early. So invite your friends to become a fan and spread the word!"

Hopefully we get four.

Currently at 1,937,307, so we've got 60,000 people to go in 5 days. I don't think we're getting all four. Three most likely.

I suspect we'll get two. But I'd rather none, I prefer the surprise.

Also, why is this is in the RBN forum?

Time to bug all your friends who aren't crazy about RB, at least until they announce the artists. They can remove it after that if they want.

I don't mind the surprise.

At least it's less nebulous than the last time they announced something. Folks all thought they'd get free DLC if they got to 1,000,000

Not only that, but if they announce artists that are coming "in the next few months", but don't tell us when, it could become an agonizing wait for some people, and a repeat of the "WHERE'S MY TEXAS FLOOD ALBUM?!?! I WANT IT NOW!!" on this forum.

Maybe I'll sign up anyway, just for fun.

Nah, they way they have it setup, it sounds like they're prepared to announce artists for only a month's worth of DLC, but reading into it more, yeah, it could be artists coming in fall.

Unless they're big names though, folks aren't going to care that much. Which hopefully means they'll be big names.

Indeed, I take this to mean that we'll be getting four big or heavily-requested artists within the next two months. Or maybe even the next four weeks, given their way of revealing fewer artists if it takes longer to hit 2M fans. Can't preview something that's already been released, after all.

Here's the ideal announcement:

Muse
Dream Theater
Tool
Buckethead


Here's what the announcement will be:

Four bands no one cares about.

I know, and I'm so excited, but Buckethead's RBN appearance won't be for a long while. Also, I'm on PS3 so I'd like it to be available for me at the same time as 360, but that's just a selfish thing

Yeah, it's confirmed, but Buckethead himself will be choosing the songs and he's on tour at the moment so the songs haven't even been decided on. However, it is DEFINITELY happening.

Ugh. Pass. Outside of Pull Me Under, there's nothing there I'd want. (It would make some hardcore fans happy though)

Lex mentioned that Nirvana was probably a band they would have announced, and plenty of folks care about that.
