    Guitar Hero has a "Rock's the '80's", and it didn't do very well. I doubt Rock Band will venture into that territory since having one band on a majority, if not all, of the disc is the boxing ring Harmonix and Red Octane are slapping each other in at the moment.

    The Beatles
    Grateful Dead
    Led Zeppelin (However if you are trying to be realistic then do not)
    Grand Funk Railroad

    its still a shame though that many people look at any of my lists, with many great songs and artists, they see one artist missing and they are like
    "zomg fail!!!!! you didn't include (insert artist)!!!!, put (one song) on there!!!!"

    I am not surprised it did not do well. Out of 30 songs there are only 5 I would want. I wouldn't pay $50 for 5 songs. There are a couple more that they hit the band but missed the song. The 80's are the years when I went through high school and college. My husband was playing and performing a lot of this music during that time. Another problem is there aren't many master tracks and several songs are going to be so hard to play they will be more frustrating than fun.

    Devil in Disguise by Elvis Presley (1963) would be a really good song too. Or Viva Las Vegas (1964)

    And good job for putting a Link Wray track in there; he's incredibly under-appreciated.

    im kinda iffy bout putting an Elvis track on there, I really wanted to put Viva Las Vegas, but i dnk why, but I'm unsure about putting him on there (and I like Elvis)

    Pretty cool idea, Schiz. And very good picks. If I understand correctly then I think I get why there's no Hendrix, Beatles or Roy Orbison on there, for example.

    A couple of things though

    If you're gonna have Beach Boys I would put California Girls, I Get Around and Fun, Fun, Fun ahead of Little Deuce Coupe.

    Why not Like a Rolling Stone from Bob?

    I'd like Shapes of Things from Jeff Beck Group, but since you've got that from Yardbirds I'll take Rock My Plimsoul from that band.

    Two more from Bay Area bands: Omaha by Moby Grape and Pride of Man by Quicksilver Messenger Service.

    Also like to see Livin' in the USA from the Steve Miller Band.

    My personal favorite of Killing Floor is by Electric Flag. Love to have something from their debut album in the set list.

    Did I miss Kinks?

    Bluebird is the best Buffalo Springfield song, hands down. But Mr. Soul would be awesome in Rock Band.

    How about RIck Nelson -- Hello Mary Lou or Travelin' Man from 1962?

    No Traffic?

    i have traffic, the kinks, roy orbison, and moby grape, lol

    i chose a few on the songs to get good songs by the bands while still spanning the entire decade (ie. my Beach Boys and Who song picks), while I agree there are better Buffalo Springfield songs, For What It's Worth is most recognizable and would make a fun, easy song

    i will add Rick Nelson, Electric Flag, and Steve Miller (totally forgot them all for some reason) as well as Quicksilver Messenger Service (i was thinking Dino's Song originally, but wasn't sure) and def. I'll add a Jeff Beck Group song and maybe a song by Beck Bogert and Appice


    thanks for the input Fogey!

    D'oh -- that's what I get for trying to scan visually instead of just searching. I see them now. :o

    I know For What It's Worth is the most well known Springfield song, but for RB play it would be pretty boring, IMO. I think it would be cool to put in one of the songs that would show just how good these guys were as musicians. Bluebird would be my pick.

    Also for RB play I think I Get Around is by far the best Beach Boys tune, with Fun, Fun, Fun second.

    Dino's Song isn't a bad choice -- if I had my druthers we'd get the Fool. A 12 minute epic for Rock Band!!! But again for Rock Band I think Pride of Man would be great. All parts have good stuff to play, and it's a lost classic, IMO.

    For Beck -- aside from Shapes, stand out tracks are Let Me Love You, Morning Dew, Rock My Plimsoul (which I mentioned) and I Ain't Superstitious. Way better version of the latter than Megadeth's, btw.

    I think we should get that whole Truth album, actually.

    The more I think about this the more cool it seems. Getting usable masters would clearly be the problem in most cases :(
