So, yeah. It's huge, I know. Here is some information about the list before we start:
1: Yes, I used obscure songs by mainstream artists. They're better, so if you haven't heard 'em, snap to it.

    Meh, go with Let Them Eat War or Los Angeles is Burning.

    "Best of You" by Foo Fighters, 2005 (Alternative)

    Use In Your Honor or The One



    You need some Placebo and Alter Bridge. Great choices for Audioslave, Finger Eleven and Muse though, man.

    "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by The Stooges, 1969 (Punk)

    Your Pretty Face is Going to Hell is better.

    "The Seeker" by The Who, 1971 (Hard Rock)

    5:15 and Squeeze Box are better.

    "He-Man Woman Hater" by Extreme, 1990 (Glam Metal)

    Decadence Dance is a good song that doesn't have a two-minute tapping fest that would be a nightmare to play.

    "Heart Full of Black" by Burning Brides, 2004 (Alternative)

    If I'm A Man is better.

    "Best of You" by Foo Fighters, 2005 (Alternative)

    No Way Back and Generator are better.

    "Classico" by Tenacious D, 2006 (Metal)

    Wonderboy and Tribute aren't better, but they DO have drums and bass, unlike this song, and would be better suited for an on-disc appearance.


    Overall, Great list, there's a lot to love here, and not a lot to dislike.

    Tarantula? Really?

    That was really the only thing I had to complain about... nice job. ;-)

    Um, that's not what happened. I chose each song for a reason, here are the stand-outs:

    Garden of Eden: INSANE vocal part, and the rest of the instruments would be doing something fun the whole way through.
    Breakout: Great vocal part, and the rest of the instruments... well, it's a Foo Fighters song. You know what to expect.
    Headfirst for Halos: It's the only MCR song I've heard that would be any fun for the guitarist (besides Dead!). And the vocals would be pretty hard, methinks.
    Frantic: It's my favourite Metallica song. St. Anger was awesome, we need some material off that in a rhythm game.
    White Lace and Strange: If you question this, you haven't heard the song. Even non-Nirvana fans like it.
    UPS Man Blues: Who doesn't love UPS Guy's singing about the struggles of being an UPS man, while Jake Adjutant eats a nice breadstick, Jessica Schleiden plays and awesome blues-y progression, Brandon Lehman displays some awesome drum mastery and Cactus plays a groovy bass riff?

    170+ songs and not a single Indie Rock song.

    That seems to be pretty common though, so oh well.

    Here's some Indie/Alternative stuff that I like

    Franz Ferdinand - The Dark of the Matinee
    Lush - Hypocrite
    Maximo Park - Apply Some Pressure
    Modest Mouse - Ocean Breathes Salty
    The New Pornographers - The Jessica Numbers
    Silversun Pickups - Little Lover's So Polite
    The Stone Roses - Waterfall
    thenewno2 - Choose What You're Watching


    e: Really good song choice with Green River's This Town. I just found out about that song a few days ago with last.fm's Recommend feature and it's pretty badass.

    too much glam metal for my liking. i would keep a few but maybe go past nu metal and power metal and add some death metal or black metal or progressive metal to make your list appealing to people out of the mainstream as well.

    I love Glam Metal, I'm sorry. What I picked is very rockin' and would be fun for all instruments. And, er, I loathe Death and Black Metal. And I don't know many Progressive Metal songs. The whole Prog thing kind of goes over my head.

    Also for indie, try some The Hold Steady, My Morning Jacket, Kings Of Leon, Vampire Weekend, Death Cab For Cutie, TV On The Radio, Snow Patrol, Starflyer 59, The Flaming Lips, The Decemberists, and Arcade Fire, just to name a few.

    I added more Alternative, some bonus songs (from GH2, yeah, I don't care), another Country song, and now twenty-first century has almost as many songs as the 1970s.
    Plus, I changed some songs by on-list artists (Hold on Loosely to Wild-Eyed Southern Boys, etc.).
    PS: I'm pretty sure Indie is just part of Alternative. So, yeah.
