Harmonix has finally decided to pull the plug on the online features for its longtime party favorite, Rock Band.

With 2,121 songs and four years of downloadable fun, Harmonix is pulling the plug on the Rock Band Network. Harmonix admits being surprised by what Rock Band Network authors were able to create online that ended up being even more enjoyable than the game's official tracks. Harmonix is glad to see so many fan-made stages and songs get their official stamp of approval over the years.

Unfortunately, the Rock Band Network was met with tremendous technical and licensing issues throughout the years. Harmonix has decided to close down the Rock Band Network, stop accepting new submissions and will halt all new RBN content. Previously released songs will still be available, but even those might be eventually pulled offline.

Want to know who the real Guitar Hero is? Eric Calderone.
