All of the songs are currently--and possibly *forever*--exclusive to this disc, so don't expect to find them in the DLC updates. According to an article I read online, AC/DC refuses to put out individual tracks (either in music games like Rock Band or Guitar Hero, nor individual mp3s found in services like iTunes) because they consider themselves a 'full-album band'... which is an unusual attitude to have, but I get it, I guess.
The only qualm I really have with this Track Pack is that, since it uses the Rock Band 1 system, you need to play through a Career-style menu in order to unlock each song. (Eg. You start off with Song 1 and can't advance until you beat it, which then unlocks Song 2 to play.. then Song 3.. and Song 4, etc.) Although, once you've completed all of the songs, they're yours to play in Quickplay, but don't expect to be able to create your own tracklist once you have unlocked them all--you'll need the Rock Band 2 functions for such things.
Luckily, the game comes with a one-time use transfer code--as mentioned in the description--to let you download the entire set as one giant file to your 360's harddrive for use with either Rock Band game in the series (and supposedly future Rock Band games as well, but we'll see about that), keep in mind that you'll need to connect to Xbox Live Marketplace to use the transfer code however.
Fairwarning: ac/dc has rare technical drum moments but is basically an endurance test + fun. The guitar is a blast to play, more veried and technical than the drums -- but I don't like technical, tho, so I tend to love the simplicity of ac/dc on drums. If you love complexity, mathmatically and musically-speaking on drums (off-beats and 8th notes etc) this track-pack isn't going to be your cup of tea at all. However, the songs are really LONG and you get a great work out and have an awesome, but non-technical time just beating away to simple beats. I played all 18 songs the first night on Hard and beat the trackpack. Easy and medium are really slow if you play rockband drums often. Expert offered more challanging moments. But if you're what I deem a 'problem-solver' or if you have a great ear, like my piano-playing-genius-with music-great-at-patterns daughter, you'll probably find this trackpack unvaried and boring - if on the other hand you're not a problem-solver, hate patterns, and are just a wild drum beater and like to have fun without thinking too hard (like I do) you'll love it.
On the other hand, what I should have but did not realize before I bought this is that the whole album is nothing but live tracks.
This means none of them quite sound right. They don't sound like you remember. This isn't so bad on the guitar, drums etc. But it makes a BIG difference on vocals.
If you want this so you can sing your favorite AC\DC songs like you know them... you're in for some disappointment. They aren't really even remotely the same live.
It caused me to nearly fail out of a few tracks that I know I'd have aced if they had been true to the album versions.
That said, I really wish Rockband wouldn't put live tracks out at all. It throws we vocalists for a loop. (Plus live is only good if you're actually, you know, there. Live.)
Worth the meager price? Sure.
Is it a major let down that they did the live versions? Definitely.
