edited August 2009 in Your Ultimate Setlist
so with the AC/DC track pack being out, I thought there could be another track pack that's worth your money
(not saying AC/DC sucks, they could just include more songs for what Im paying)

some of these are pretty common on most RB3 wishlists Ive seen here, and some are songs that come to mind when I think of the 80s

1980 (2 Songs)
  • The Police – Don’t Stand So Close to Me (New Wave)

1983 (4 Songs)
  • Billy Idol – Rebel Yell (Rock)
  • David Bowie – Lets Dance (Pop)
  • Quiet Riot – *** on Feel the Noize (Heavy Metal)
  • Suicidal Tendencies – Institutionalized (Punk/Metal?)

1984 (4 Songs)
  • Echo & the Bunnymen – The Killing Moon (Punk?)
  • The Scorpions – Rock you like a Hurricane (Heavy Metal)
  • Van Halen – Panama (Hard Rock)
  • Twisted Sister – Were Not Gonna Take it (Heavy Metal)

1985 (3 Songs)
  • A-ha – Take on Me (New Wave)
  • Oingo Boingo – Dead Mans Party (New Wave)
  • John Cafferty – Hearts on Fire (Rock)

  • Poison – I Want Action (Glam Metal)
  • Beastie Boys – No Sleep Til Brooklyn (Hard Rock)
  • RUN-D.M.C. – Walk This Way (Rap Rock)
  • Metallica – Master of Puppets (Thrash Metal)

1987 (4 Songs)
  • R.E.M. – It’s the End of the World as we know it (and I Feel Fine) (Alternative)
  • Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar on Me (Hard Rock)
  • Whitesnake – Here I Go Again (Glam Metal)

    Will this be a expansion pack. If its DLC I would definitely grab a bunch of these.

    Some good songs in there, but I'm not sure if a Track Pack is the way to go. Fair enough for those without internet connections or who use PS2, but I would just rather see this available as regular DLC other wise. It just strikes me as so utterly wasteful of time, money, resources etc. to manufacture a disc with tracks that most people would then just redeem a code for to download into their games (a la the AC/DC pack) if they are a 360/PS3 user.

    I'm all for releasing Track Packs for those who can't get online or who play RB on PS2, but to make it the only option should be as avoided as much as humanly possible in the future.

    i WOULD prefer these songs as DLC because there a like 5 or 6 i would buy, the rest are garbage, and instead of the joan jett song you put, it should be i love rock and roll

    Billy Idol and Micheal Jackson as rock? MJ is just pop, that is really out there. Cough* King of pop *Cough. Billy Idol I think is new wave.

    1: Change to Living After Midnight; almost as popular, way more fun for everyone.
    2: Change to Run for Cover (for fun) or Metal Health (for popularity and fun).
    3: Get rid of. You have a good Aerosmith song; no need to put one that got completely ruined by bad rapping in.

    Michael Jackson and Billy Idol are both available in Guitar Hero and Rock Band, respectively. Just because a song isn't rock doesn't mean it can't be included.

    Your opinion sucks.

    Instead of Walk This Way, change the Run-D.M.C. track to Rock Box.

    I haven't heard much Run DMC, but their version of Walk This Way is terrible.

    Maybe you don't think the rapping fits the song, but there's no such thing as "bad rapping" when it comes to Run-D.M.C.

    I'd buy it, but I'd like to see a Ratt or Cinderella song included though.

    I'm pretty sure "doesn't fit the song" makes it "bad" in that context by default.

    We definitely need more 80s representation in the game (for the life of me, I can't understand why HMX shows so much love to the 70s and 90s but continues to obliviously skip over the decade in-between), but this track pack smells too much like retreads from earlier Guitar Hero games.

    Queen: not a duet. "Under Pressure" is great and all, and coming to GH5, but Freddie deserves his own spotlight, not to share one with Bowie. Try Another One Bites the Dust; Hammer to Fall; Radio Ga Ga; Crazy Little Thing Called Love...anything from Wembley '85 would work.

    Michael Jackson: again, no more GH retreads. Go for "Bad," "Thriller," "Billie Jean," "Dirty Diana"....

    John Cafferty: "Hearts on Fire"? Instead of "On the Dark Side?" Really?

    The Cult: Not "Love Removal Machine" AGAIN. As overplayed as "She Sells Sanctuary." Really, folks, The Cult had a LOT more than just those two songs. "Big Neon Glitter," "Love," "Black Angel," "Lil Devil," "Sweet Soul Sister," "Edie (Ciao Baby)", "Fire Woman," "Peace Dog"....anything but LRM or SSS *again.*

    And where's U2, for pete's sake? And Bryan Adams? Depeche Mode? Bruce Springsteen? Dire Straits? Cyndi Lauper? The Eurythmics? The Clash? Guns N Roses?

    And if you want to include hip-hop, "Walk This Way" don't cut it. If you want RUN-DMC, "King of Rock" or "It's Tricky" are much better choices. Also, where's LL Cool J? Grandmaster Flash? Afrika Bambaataa? Kurtis Blow? Public Enemy? Doug E. Fresh? Kool Moe Dee? Even The Fat Boys....?

    New Wave: needz moar Adam Ant, Howard Jones, Kajagoogoo, Simple Minds, Naked Eyes, Tears for Fears, The Fixx, Ultravox, Thompson Twins, Culture Club....

    Nice Cult choices. Adam Ant would also be great. I also very much agree with your Run DMC choices.

    Beat It is a rock song, since when was Eddie Van Halen in a pop song?
    On that note, i would like Dirty Diana to replace Beat It, its far superior
