The Beatles were, and arguably still are, the most popular band on earth. The first videogame bearing their name went on sale just under two weeks ago and is already making records. One of the band’s most iconic songs – the anthemic, era-defining â€œAll you need is loveâ€ was released as a timed exclusive DLC on the Xbox 360.
Well, that song has now become the fastest selling Rock Band DLC – and it only took two days. It’s a good thing too, because as we mentioned previously, all proceeds from the sale of the song go to â€œDoctors without borders,â€ and while there are no concrete facts yet as to how much has been raised for the humanitarian organisation, it is said to be â€œtens of thousandsâ€ of dollars.
Dr. Matt Spitzer, of the organisation had this to say : â€œWe are incredibly grateful for having been selected as the beneficiary of this promotion. Funds generated from initiatives such as this can go a long way,â€ he added. â€œSeverely malnourished children will be treated, people displaced by war will receive life-saving medical care, and people living with HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and other neglected diseases will have access to the medicines they need. On behalf of our patients, Doctors Without Borders says â€˜Thank You.’â€
Did you buy the song? If so, smile – you’re contributed to saving the lives of people in need.
