About Us

RockBandRelief.org is a fundraising initiative originally developed in response to the May 2010 flooding in Nashville, Tennessee. The original mission of RockBandRelief.org was to convert songs submitted by participating musicians into playable tracks for the Rock Band video game series. These tracks were then sold through the Rock Band Network (RBN) in-game store and on the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace website, with a portion of the profits being donated to the American Red Cross to support their worldwide disaster relief efforts.

During the initial campaign RockBandRelief.org enabled musicians to have their songs authored, tested and submitted to the Rock Band Network free of charge in exchange for a 50/50 split of any commissions earned from the sale of those songs through the Rock Band store. Any portion of the sales commission which the artist chose to donate to the Red Cross, up to 100%, was matched by RockBandRelief.org.

The amount donated varied by song and was at the discretion of the artist and their management. With matching in place, the final donation varied from 5% - 30% of the total purchase price of the song. Songs ranged in price from $1 to $3 and were purchased for download from the Rock Band 3 in-game store.
