The full soundtrack for Rock Band 3 will feature 83 songs, including a mix of tracks that will make use of the new keyboard peripheral.[1][2] Prior to the 2010 Gamescom convention in mid August, 2010, Harmonix had officially revealed about 50 of the songs in the game; however, inadvertently during a video interview at the conference, most of the remaining set list was determined from a Rock Band 3 demonstration screen showing the song list in the game in the background of this interview.[3] The next day, Harmonix members, including John Drake and Dan Sussman, created a makeshift video from Gamescom, officially rejecting the reliability of the list from the previous interview, asserting themselves as "communication professionals" that would "never accidently leak" the full setlist—while at the same time, scrolling through all 83 songs in Rock Band 3 in the video's background as a means of confirming the full setlist.[4][2]

Existing content for other Rock Band games, including on-disc songs, downloadable content, and songs from the Rock Band Network will be playable in Rock Band 3.[5] In particular, Rock Band Network songs will not be as restricted as they currently are in Rock Band 2, and can be used in random setlists, challenges, and customized setlists.[6] Downloaded content released after the release of Rock Band 3 will no longer be compatible with previous games in the series due to changes in the song format.[7] The Rock Band Network will gain new features to support vocal harmonies, keyboards, and Pro drums and keyboards, but will not support Pro guitar or bass due to complexities with authoring and the testing userbase.[8]

The Nintendo DS version of the game will feature a 25-song subset of the consoles' setlist.[9][10]
