Free DLC for Xbox 360 and PSN for Guitar Hero 3 for the St. Patricks Day weekend!!!! Irish Songs

Just in time for your weekend St. Patrick's Day celebrations (you're not really going to party on a Monday are you?) comes a trio of Dropkick Murphys songs for Guitar Hero III, available right now on Xbox Live and (we're assuming) a little later in the day on PSN.

The pack includes "Famous for Nothing", "Flannigan's Ball" and "Johnny, I Hardly Knew Ya", all master tracks and all from their album The Meanest of Times. Now, before you go complaining that they're not the DKM songs you would have chosen, you should know that the pack is free, free, totally free. Not bad for a holiday usually only good for "you're not wearing green" pinches from the 55-year-old woman in accounting.

Take what you can - give nothing back.

Opinion/=fact

Lots of people love DKM. Personally I'm indifferent. But will download the songs and see how they are Anything free especially on xbl is not to be sniffed at...

Lets hope they do the same for St.Georges, St.Davids and St.Andrews day....

Oh and isnt St.Patricks Day Weekend a bit of a contradiction....

well i can see your point but they should be available to download now until Tuesday :thumbsup:

This is really good. Not quite as good as the Goldie Lookin Chain free song downloads on St Davids Day though.

Its a good thing to hear because the game will keep its value longer them most

So the more free releases the better :thumbsup:

I will fight you, thats no lie.

Dropkick Murphys are friggin great live! I've been to quite a few concerts in my life, and seriously the Dropkicks are up there. One of the best nights craic I've ever had!
If you ever get the chance to see them - go for it. Also I'd recommend checkin out Hayseed Dixie, those guys are a hoot! Brilliant craic all round.

My next mission is to get to a Dan Band gig.

Keep an eye on it mate because i am sure it will become available sometime soon :thumbsup:

Remember, folks, paddy's day is on the 15th this year, not the 17th!
My brother nearly put his foot in it, he got married on paddy's day last year and was all set to celebrate his 1 year anniversary on Saturday!

Been released on the US version but this isn't compatible with PAL versions of the game. Guitar Hero 3 content is released a week later in Europe! Typical. Blame Activision

Hmm... mods are being inconsistent again... see this thread

Is the US version definately not compatible with UK verson of the game ? I can't see why it wouldn't work.

Haven't got the game, but voted hot !

Definitely. It'll download ok and install but guitar hero won't recognize it. If you have the US version of the game you can download it fine though. I'm presuming so anyway as its been that way with all the other downloads so far.

yay for freebies!

Fine. Name the time and place. I've seen them all. I am a live reviewer. NOFX, Pennywise etc... all dull American pop-punk responsible for more bad bands than they produced good songs. End. Of.

Ahem! Both of you should look at this:

The date of the feast is occasionally moved by church authorities when … The date of the feast is occasionally moved by church authorities when March 17 falls during Holy Week; this last happened in 1940 when Saint Patrick's Day was observed on 3 April in order to avoid it coinciding with Palm Sunday, and will happen again in 2008, when it shall be held on either March 14[2][3] or March 15.[4] After 2008, March 17th will not fall during Holy Week again until 2160.[5]

"Holy week" is the Easter week, with good friday and Easter Sunday. Can't very well start the holiest week of the year by getting pissed now, can we?

What has you being a reviewer got to do with anything? I think you're missing the point of the Dropkicks. Fair enough, they sound like any other US pop punk band, a genre I'm not overly fond of myself. But what sets them aside is their Irish cover tracks and ability to get an Irishman's patriotic blood to reach boiling point. The "You can take our lives, but you'll never take our freedom!" sorta feeling.
If you are a live reviewer, you of all people should know that you don't always have to like the style of music to enjoy the concert. I'm not particularly a fan of U2 but I've seen them live twice, and they easily put on two of the best shows I've ever seen.
How's dinner at mine, eight thirty shall we say? If you read NME, don't bother coming.
