    Yeah, not all of those are the band's huge hits.

    Nice setlist, one of the best I've seen on here. Got any ideas for DLC?

    theres alot of older rock stuff, old rock is cool and all, but theres not alot of other genres songs in there though. theres very few metal songs for instinse. i could be that im a major metal head and some of the songs dont appeal to me. i dunno, it just looks like gh3 setlist, cool when you play it for the first time, but a few weeks later your like, this game sucks a big one dude.

    Like:
    *Jefferson Airplane (YES, YES, YES!!!)
    *The variety
    *Knowing I'm not the only one who knows The Cardigans

    Didn't really like:
    *The amount of reccuring tracks from Guitar Hero
    *Misirlou
    *Black Sabbath choice (I would suggest Supernaut but really there's alot out there better, and more interesting as far as composition, than Iron Man)
    *Freebird

    Favorite:
    Sympathy for the Devil

    Edit: Also as far 00's I would throw in just a few lesser known, up and coming bands, from the last 2 or 3 years. Like how RB1 did The New Pornographers. We all bitched and it turned out to be awesome and not they keep growing. Oh and it needs more VAGIANT.

    I'd go for Trashed or The Mob Rules over Supernaut or Iron Man, myself, but nothing's wrong with either.

    Misirlou? I thought I deleted that. And all of those songs from Guitar Hero have never been in a full-band game.

    I put Iron Man because I thought it would be awesome to play drums on.

    That guy would hate my setlist, then. But, yours is pretty well fleshed out, I must say. And I agree with your stance on the Guitar Hero tracks being included. "Message In A Bottle" was in GH2 and is a total blast to play on Rock Band. There a re tons of songs that have been in the first three guitar hero games that still haven't appeared in a band game yet, so I look forward to revisiting the likes of Primus, RATM, Audioslave, Sum 41 and more.

    And btw, your DLC list was pretty good. Nice picks for the Doors.

    Right and I get that but because they have been in a game before it just seems better to put the "redoes" for DLC and bring original stuff from those bands to the on-disc stuff.

    I love the variety~ and there are a ton of amazing songs that I like, but I'm gonna try and criticize your list~ because that's what makes it better

    First thing, there are only two songs from Indie artists. There could be more~ and shouldn't Bloc Party be Indie as well?

    Also, it's nice that you included Run DMC as Hip-Hop, but I think a Funk song or two would be most welcome~ maybe a song from Kool and The Gang~ how about Jungle Boogie?

    Or Funkytown. I know it seems cheesy but on an honest note that song does have some really fun drums.

    Upcoming pack? Do you mean the GHWT one?

    Listen to Geek USA, Tristessa, Mayonaise, and Soma and pick your favorite... or if you don't want to listen, just add Geek USA. ;)
