According to rock band Motley Crue its new track “Saints of Los Angeles” sold 5 times as much as downloadable content via Rock Band than it did on traditional music services like iTunes or Amazon.

According to the band the Xbox 360 version of Rock Band alone sold 47,000 copies of the track. Sony wouldn’t divulge the number of tracks sold for the PS3 version. The track cost GBP 0.99 for Rock Band and couldn’t be used on MP3 players.

"The resurgence of rock has happened because of Rock Band and Guitar Hero, and the reason is because of the interaction with the audience," said Allen Kovac, boss of Tenth Street, the record label-like company handling Moltey Crue.
