Have Your Cake and Sing About it Too

Last week a massive list of possible Rock Band tracks were discovered in a data file on the game disc. Many of the songs have been released as DLC in the weeks and months since the game launched leaving the remaining songs as safe bets for future downloads.

One of the songs in that list was "Still Alive" but since the list didn't include artist names, there was no way of knowing if it was *the* Still Alive. Surely, it couldn't be.

Turns out it's the real deal, as some of the guys from Harmonix got up on stage at one of songwriter Jonathan Coulton's shows last night and performed it in Rock Band with him. The song is listed in game as "Still Alive by GlaDOS".

It doesn't really lend itself well to the game (unless they rerecorded it?) but it should be fun to play regardless, whenever they get around to making it available. This Tuesday's lineup is still up in the air so we could be playing it sooner rather than later.
