“All You Need Is Love” Becomes Fastest-Selling Rock Band Download

The first downloadable track for The Beatles: Rock Band, “All You Need Is Love,” became the fastest-selling download in Rock Band history just two days after its release, Kotaku reports. Sales of the Xbox 360-exclusive track benefit Doctors Without Borders, which provides emergency medical care to war-torn regions and developing countries.

In addition to the tens of thousands of dollars raised by song purchases, an online auction of a one-of-a-kind Beatles-themed Xbox 360 pulled in at least $17,600 for the organization. That amount will cover 86,500 immunizations or about 15 days of drugs and medical supplies for 2,800 people.

“All You Need Is Love” will run you 160 Microsoft Points (about $2). A great song for a great cause at a great price.
