MTV Networks has just announced an upcoming service for Rock Band called the Rock Band Network. This service will help bands create and release tracks that are compatible with Rock Band and allow fans to rock out to their favorite artist no matter who they are. But let’s be clear, this is not a fan service, it is entirely up to the band to take control and produce the tracks.
