    Ever since the music store shut down, I've regretted not getting some of the DLC.
    My question is, is it possible to get the DLC with some kind of homebrew?

    Sorry for the late replay, (and I doubt anyone will read this) but I've managed to obtain a .wad file of all the Beatles Rock Band DLC songs. I've configuring with my Wii, I still haven't figured out how to get the DLC songs yet. However, I managed to get the DLC songs to work on Dolphin 5.0 (GameCube/Wii Emulator). If you do happen to read this, let me know and I will give instructions on how to do it!

    It may be possible to hack them in like RB3 customs, however that depends on if the generation the DLC is tied to can be cracked. I think I've seen people experimenting with adding non-Beatles songs to the game to see what happens, so it might be possible.

    You would lose the actual Beatles playing the songs, but there's a Beatles Rock Band to Rock Band 3 customs project available with all the songs, plus customs for songs we didn't get.

    I have seen videos of that before. I did see someone play Hey Jude on The Beatles: Rock Band on YouTube, but the audio was modified for copyright reasons. Sadly though, it doesn't seem like the animation has been changed to sync in with the songs or any of the songs that I have found, so hopefully the animations will be improved. So far, I only found the PS3 version having custom songs, but I'm pretty sure there are version for the Xbox 360. Also on an update of trying to get the DLC songs to work, I'm not having much luck. There was a way to get all The Beatles: Rock Band DLC songs for free when the store was open. You needed the .wad file along with a Wad Manager. Install the WAD and you should get a certain error code. Then you had to go to the Music Store and every song will be free to download. I've tried doing the same thing only with the Music Store closed down and no success. Like I said before, I did manage to get all the songs working (expect for Abbey Road which just softlocks the game when trying to load any of the DLC songs) and it's completely different from doing it on an actual Wii. I've tried replicating it but I still haven't gotten them to work. I'll keep trying other methods and will hopefully figure out a way to get the songs. Here are these two screenshots taken from my Dolphin emulator which includes some of the DLC songs.

    I'm not entirely sure, but I wasn't the only one experiencing the problem. After reading through some forums, other players were complaining that the songs wouldn't load. I'm assuming the Abbey Road songs are corrupted. I'll probably find another .wad file, but for now Sgt. Pepper, Rubber Soul and All You Need Is Love work just fine! Like I said, I'll try to get these songs on my Wii and will report back instructions on how to do it. If I can't get them on my Wii, the only option is using Dolphin 5.0 or higher.

    In case any of you don't believe that I got the songs to work, here is a video of me playing You Won't See Me on Dolphin 5.0-7524-x64:
    Sorry if I manage to miss notes, I forgot to calibrate the game. Also, it might lag mainly due to my computer not being a good computer for recording games, so I had to edit some parts.

    I posted a link to the download in the video description to the DLC songs. It includes Beatles: Rock Band along with other Rock Band DLC!

    UPDATE: If you downloaded Clone Hero (which I recommend if you want to play custom songs) and want to play The Beatles: Rock Band songs including DLC, the download is in the same video's comment section! (The files contain Multi-tracks as well.)

    EDIT: The songs also work with Phase Shift!

    This will probably be my last post. If you need some help on trying to get the DLC songs to work on Dolphin, here is a video I made:
