    This is actually a pretty good setlist. It's a good mix between popular songs and lesser-known songs, with a good variety of genres. I only have a couple nitpicks.

    Daft Punk's "Harder Better Faster Stronger" wouldn't really work well. It's repetitive, there's hardly any bass, the vocals would be...interesting to try to pull off, and whatever the guitar part would be would be rather boring. Really, most Daft Punk songs are like that, and any techno in general.

    dc Talk's "Jesus Freak" is a bit too...preachy, I guess, for an on-disc song. If you're going to include it, I would only put it in as DLC. I would include something less polarizing and more interesting to play, such as "It's Killing Me" or "My Friend (So Long)".

    Vampire Weekend's "A-Punk" would be so boring on guitar. That's about the only thing I can think of for that one, but I would still pick something a bit more interesting for every instrument, like "Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa".

    that is a very good setlist i must say. but i would not buy that game, due to lack of at least 1 new age metal song. slipknot i think should deserve a place before sonic youth. but i love how you added beach boys i give you props on that i would love beach boys <3 :)

    You win everything forever, this is the best RB3 setlist I've seen. Kind of odd choice for a Pavement song though, I'd personally have gone with either Stereo or Trigger Cut.

    ...Why? For one, they aren't in even remotely similar genres. Secondly, Sonic Youth was one of the most defining alternative rock bands for the alt/indie scene of the late 80's/90's, while Slipknot is a fairly generic alt/nu-metal band.

    I mean, I don't mind Slipknot being in Rock Band, but not above bands like Sonic Youth.

    I'm assuming your frame of reference is Teenage Riot, which means the above can be read as "I don't like Sonic Youth because their songs actually require you to pay attention and understand the lyrics."

    I have yet to hear a Sonic Youth song that was remotely repetitive or dragged on too long. Teenage Riot is sort of long, but it certainly doesn't drag on and it's not repetitive.

    You might personally want Slipknot over Sonic Youth, but I guarantee more people would rather have Sonic Youth. Daydream Nation helped define an entire genre of music after all, while Slipknot is just another alt/nu-metal band. There's nothing wrong with that, it's just not something that should be considered over more defining bands.

    As for your earlier comment, there is most certainly a nu-metal song on his list. System Of A Down is one of the most interesting and unique nu-metal bands out there. Along with Korn, they're one of the few exceptions to the generic nu-metal sound that seems to plague most bands in the genre.
