Crossover of the Year? (Rock Band DLC)

E-mail

Fans of Valve's The Orange Box are no doubt familiar with Portal and its lighthearted ending theme, "Still Alive", written by nerd rock icon Jonathan Coulton. (At this point, you would be hard pressed to find someone who isn't familiar with the song, even if they've never played Portal.) It has swept the recent Game Developer Choice Awards in San Francisco, picking up the coveted Game of the Year award, among others.

What does all this have to do with Rock Band?

Developer HMXSean and the Harmonix staff were in attendance at the event and joined Jonathan Coulton on stage at a nearby nightclub, plastic instruments in hand, to perform "Still Alive" in Rock Band. Sean says in his Rock Band blog that the song was played as a preview and does not give (or know) a release date for the DLC.
