Grundy The Man writes, "After an eight year absence from recording, on October 20th 2008, AC/DC released their sixteenth studio, Black Ice. This was a return to form for the band and a marketing milestone for the music industry. While selling their new album exclusively at Wal-Mart, over 784,000 copies flew off of store shelves in the first week. Not only was Black Ice the best selling record that week, but it was the second biggest album debut of the entire year and marked only the second time in the band's 30-year history, that they managed to hold the #1 position in weekly sales.
In hopes of riding this gravy train to more pay dirt, Harmonix recently released the AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack. This standalone product consists of eighteen of the band's biggest hits, all digitally remastered from the groundbreaking Live at Donington record. So will this game cash in on the revived legacy of one of the greatest rock bands ever, or is it nothing more than another chance to help subsidize the retirement fund for a group of rapid aging rockers?"
