While we'd love to have the sale start in time for fourth of July parties, it's tough to get angry at Microsoft for slashing the prices on hundreds of music game tracks, as 50 Guitar Hero tracks, 123 Rock Band tracks, and 38 Lips songs. From July 6 through12 Xbox 360-owning game musicians will be able to score the songs for up to 50 percent off.
The 211 songs on sale as part of Microsoft's LIVEapalooza promotion encompass only a handful of single tracks, with 10 Guitar Hero tracks, two Rock band tracks, and 8 Lips songs each dropping from $2 to $1. The savings for the other 191 songs are only applied when purchased as part of a track pack or album set, with three-packs selling for $3 instead of $6. Rock Band track packs featuring more than three songs have dropped to $6, while all albums have been cut to $10. On the Guitar Hero side, Metallica's Death Magnetic Album has dropped from $18 to $12, while the Rolling Stones Live pack is $5 instead of $9
