- The "American Pie" DLC was the last released in the original Rock Band run. The idea here is that the end of Rock Band represents a blow for its fans, if not nearly to the extent of the tragic plane crash of 1959. There is however a second, nationalistic meaning. Rhythm games are generally in the domain of Japanese companies. Guitar Hero and Rock Band were the American exceptions, and Guitar Hero DLC was discontinued earlier, so, other Harmonix properties notwithstanding, the end of Rock Band DLC did indeed represent a shift away from American rhythm games.
- This could also simply just be a reference to the song. American Pie talks about the day the music died, and this is the last DLC song.
