Thisnameislame's RB3 setlist

ThisnameislameThisnameislame Rising Star
edited April 2009 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Yeah, I couldn't resist making one of my own. Designed to be somewhat plausible and cater to mainstream as well as hardcore. Doesn't include HMX bands partly because they tend to include the bands' most current songs, and RB3 isn't releasing for at least a year. 105 songs because its divisible by 7 so with the RB2 tiers they could still have equal songs per tier.

*Updated with You're Gonna Go Far, Kid replacing The Kids Aren't Alright for obvious reasons. I expect the next time I'll have to update will involve Lithium turning out to be DLC.

**And I was wrong, Would? is now Rooster and Blue Collar Man is now Grand Illusion. So even though I'm not getting much attention I'll still try to keep this up to date because I can.

***More updates to keep all songs new to RB.

****changed the BR song now that 21st Century (Digital Boy) is DLC.

    This setlist is...okay.

    Now, it's good, don't get me wrong, but I feel like you mostly just picked the songs
    everyone would know from these bands.

    Don't be afraid to take risks, my friend.

    Well I did that for bands I'm not familiar with, and a lot of times the songs everyone would like is the song I would like as well. I think there's plenty of instances where I didn't pick the obvious song. Digging the Grave, Suffer Some, Living in The Past, Looks That Kill, Stand Up, Ring of Fire, and Long Live Rock for example.

    Stricken is a terrible choice for Disturbed. And we've had it.

    Hmm...true, my friend.

    Also, I can't help but notice that quite a few songs are reused from Guitar Hero.
    Those should be changed.

    But hey, props for Freewheel Burning. Love that song.

    (Psst. Go look at my setlist. Psst.)

    Yeah I but I never played GH1 or 80s and thought a lot of the songs would be good for drums and vocals anyway (Of course GH: Greatest Hits being recently announced kind of kills that point, but I wasn't exactly aware of it when I started composing this list.) So yeah, maybe tomorrow I'll consider swapping some of them out.

    Nice list. Some of you're picks were songs I personally would've preferred for mine but felt my pick would make more sense for some reason (I.E. Like the Angel vs. Paper Wings,)

    What makes it so terrible besides already having it? I think we should get something from 10K Fists because the first 2 albums don't seem to have particularly interesting guitar (based on the songs I've heard), and we already have 3 songs from Indestructible. What do you suggest instead?

    Here's a possible final band tier as a shameless way of trying to revive this. I may do specific instrument final tiers in the future, but I doubt I'll do full tier lists. I'm not necessarily good at judging how hard songs are, so feel free to suggest corrections:

    Rainbow in the Dark
    Spirit of the Radio
    4 Words (To Choke Upon)
    Deadly Sinners
    Hocus Pocus
    Paradise City
    Jesus Built My Hotrod
    Practice What You Preach
    Bat Country
    Cowboys From Hell
    Indians
    Holy Wars... The Punishment Due
    Motorbreath
    Slaughter of the Soul
    Metropolis Pt. 1

    Pretty good list altogether.

    Alice in Chains song should be Angry Chair or Dam That River.
    Blue Oyster Cult song should be Black Blade or Burnin' For You.
    Bon Jovi song should be Raise Your Hands, Keep the Faith, or any of the infinite number of other Bon Jovi songs that are leagues better than YGLaBN.
    Deep Purple song should be Speed King or Woman From Tokyo.
    Dio song should be We Rock.
    Europe song should be Rock the Night.
    Guns N' Roses song should be Think About You or Nightrain.
    Journey song should be Seperate Ways or Stone In Love.
    Lynyrd Skynyrd song should be Saturday Night Special.
    Pat Benatar song should be Hell is for Children.
    Quiet Riot song should be Mama Weer All Crazee Now.
    RHCP song should be Coffee Shop.
    Rolling Stones song should be Brown Sugar.
    Smashing Pumpkins song should be Geek USA.
    Scorpions song should be Bad Boys Running Wild.
    Soundgarden song should be My Wave or Flower.
    Tom Petty song should be Mary Jane's Last Dance.
    ZZ Top song should be Just Got Paid or Cheap Sunglasses.

    Overall, just an OK setlist. Most of the picks are decent, but there are some glaring mistakes (especially Final Countdown).

    @SonicRocker: No. Shut up. What he has is leagues above what you suggest.

    The name may be lame, but the setlist is not. All bad puns aside, I'd buy it.

    It's not exactly my cup of tea, though there's a few gems in there (Wheel in the Sky is a personal favorite).

    There's one real glaring error though...

    No Dire Straits=FAIL

    Considering that at least 90% of people don't give a damn about any other Europe songs, but love The Final Countdown, I fail to see how it's such a "glaring mistake." This isn't designed solely to be the best selection of songs, or even the most fun, it's designed to sell the game as well, and The Final Countdown would definitely help sell the game.

    Until some poor, unfortunate guitarist plays it.

    He would have to wait. And wait. And wait. And-OH CRAP SOLO TIME

    I'm pretty sure there's guitar outside the solo. It's just not prominent, but they could mix down the synth like they did with Hungry Like the Wolf. As for the first minute with just synth... look at Baba O'Riley's DLC sales.

    That was the Papa Roach song of the same name. (Yay for delayed response as shameless attempt to revive this #2)
