While the headline may make it sound as if next week’s Rock Band Music Store update is going to be a massive pack, the truth is that what Harmonix announced today is merely a three track update featuring songs from the late 70s and early 2000s. The good news is that these were all hits (or relative hits) during their time. The update kicks off with a Pro guitar and bass upgrade compatible version of singer/songwriter Eddie Money’s Two Tickets to Paradise, off his self-titled 1977 debut album. Leaping forward in chronological order brings us to an upgrade compatible version of Train’s 2001 Grammy-winning single Drops of Jupiter (Tell Me), which is followed by Yellowcard’s earworm hit Only One (which, I kid you not, is now stuck in my head), off their 2003 album Ocean Avenue. All of the tracks are also Keyboard compatible.

The tracks will be available, individually, for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Wii on May 1st, for the standard $2 USD equivalent. The Pro upgrade will also be its usual $1 USD equivalent per compatible track.
