Starting May 10th until June 28th, each week in Season 6 will be focused on the 'History of Rock Band' and there won't be a spotlight pass. It seems to be entirely dedicated to rewind tracks, i.e. tracks previously part of a setlist in an earlier Rock Band instalment (RB, RB2, RB3, LRB etc).

May 24th:
Creed - "Higher" (Rewind track from Rock Band Network 1.0)

Other Notes

The History of Rock Band continues plus we will now be receiving the highest requested tracks from the Rock Band Network era included as official DLC. Both "Bodies" and "Higher" were the most downloaded titles from RBN and they were released during 1.0. 1.0 are the songs authored during Rock Band 2 while 2.0 is during Rock Band 3. The 1.0 tracks have corrected Pro Drums gameplay while the vocals are left the same as they were with some getting tweaked for Harmonies.

It’s nice to see rewind tracks getting pulled in from RBN, seems there’s a few good tracks in there that have been lost to time when RBN got shuttered. I’d love to see the Jonathan Coulton stuff come back.
