Harmonix has announced Rock Band 3 owners can download Light My Fire, Riders on the Storm and Touch Me from The Doors, for free during the game’s launch week.

Pardon the cursing, but fuck yeah!

“I’m very excited that keyboards are finally a part of Rock Band,” said Ray Manzarek, keyboardist for The Doors. I”t’s about time you guys got hip to the necessity of keys in rock. This is going to be great for all the gamers, because it’s a lot more difficult. Rock Band 3 will require some brainwork, so let’s ‘Break On Through!'”

On Oct. 26, 12 of The Doors’ songs, including three tracks with the Pro Guitar and Pro Bass feature, will be added to the Rock Band 3 Music Store. It was previously announced that The Doors’ Break On Through (To the Other Side) is featured in the on-disc soundtrack of Rock Band 3.
