Cost will average 1.99 per song, 5.49 if you buy a bundle (you can buy bundles as individual songs, unlike Guitar Hero 2 or 3.)
Here's a selection of the stuff available the first week. Total of 15 songs will be available the first week and 27 within a month of launch:

Metallica Pack
"Ride the Lightning"
"Blackened"
"And Justice for All"

The Police Pack
"Can't Stand Losing You"
"Synchronicity II"
"Roxanne"

Queens of the Stone Age Pack

Some songs will be cheaper, some more expensive. ($0.99-2.99)
Harmonix is going to own my soul by the time this is over.
