Harmonix released more details about Rock Band Blitz this week. We now have 15 of the 25 songs revealed, as well as info on some of the powerups.
Known songs: • All-American Rejects - Kids In The Street • Barenaked Ladies - One Week • Blink-182 - Always • Collective Soul - Shine • Elton John - I'm Still Standing • Fall Out Boy - A Little Less Sixteen Candles, A Little More "Touch Me" • Foster The People - Pumped Up Kicks • Great White - Once Bitten, Twice Shy • Iron Maiden - Wicker Man • Living Colour - Cult Of Personality • P!nk - Raise Your Glass • Quiet Riot - Metal Health • Rick Springfield - Jessie's Girl • Shinedown - Diamond Eyes • Tears For Fears - Shout
And while they may SAY that they included Cult of Personality to suck up to CM Punk, we all know who's really responsible:
In addition, here are some of the powerups in the game: • Bandmate: takes over a track and plays all notes for you • Blast Note: blows up any notes it touches • Bottle Rocket: explodes and clears notes it hits on tracks • Flame Note: burn everything with fire to keep • Jackpot: play absolutely perfect to earn 3X points, but flub up and lose it all • Pinball Note: keep a pinball bouncing to clear touched notes • Point Doubler: 2x points • Runaway Note: chase a note to get a bonus • Shockwave: sends out a wave that scores on all notes it touches • Synchrony: switches tracks without breaking your note streak
And a brief video about said powerups:
So yeah. You probably don't care! But I do, so go start a thread about something else if that's how you're going to be.

It's hard to tell, since it's an entirely new gameplay mechanic. You use a standard controller, not a plastic guitar. I think it looks fun and arcadey, but even if it sucks, it should still be a fair-priced DLC add-on for Rock Band 3, so it's a first-day purchase for me.

Unless I'm misunderstanding things, the songs work in RB3 with no export fee, just like DLC. So even if Blitz sucks, you're exsentially getting a sweet RB3 DLC pack at a big discount. And they should still have more songs left to announce.
Also, all of your existing Rock Band songs (with the exception of the songs on the RB3 disc, since there's no export licence for those yet) will automatically work in Blitz.

The last six Rock Band Blitz songs: • Foo Fighters – These Days • Kelly Clarkson – Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You) • Maroon 5 – Moves Like Jagger • Queen – Death on Two Legs • Red Hot Chili Peppers – Give It Away • Soundgarden – Spoonman
BIG markout over here for the returns to Rock Band of Spoonman and (especially) Give It Away. Blood Sugar Sex Magik is whole again and I am delighted.
