edited May 2009 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Granted, I know that there will be a RB3 coming out in the near future. I broke this list down by genres to make sure it has been more leveled out in terms of variety. And I do recognize that this list by far exceeds what is normally put in a game, but I think this has the closest to having a great variety of tracks.

    What do you mean about the genres? Granted, I split them up where I best saw fit, but I could not distinguish metal that well. I am not versed in that.

    Awesome... That is nice to hear...

    Like, I avoided picking songs I want. I tried to make the fairest collection out there. Tried to get an even assortment of rock, classic rock, metal, alt, indie, etc.

    you put paramore as alternative (pop rock)
    you put queensryche as metal (prog)
    a lot of stuff you put as rock could have been in other genres (classic rock, indie, alternative)
    and you put asia's poppiest (i just made up that word) song as prog instead of pop rock



    but i'd definitely buy this game

    This

    1985 should go to Punk, Sex on Fire to Alternative, and Tuff Enuff should go to Blues.

    It is a pretty good list overall.

    Try to choose a different Quiet Riot song though, like Slick Black Cadillac or Metal Health.

    No Progressive Metal? You should put some Dream Theater and Cynic in there!

    breaking the law by fightstar would be a lot better then the original because the original is so boring.

    Yeah, I get confused when bands are considered several genres. BFS is mostly Pop-Punk. Sex on Fire should be there. And Tuff Enuff should be there.

    And my personal bias is in the QR song choice. I really love that one, although I know Slick Black Cadillac would be the most fun.

    As for Classic Rock, I could do sooo much more. I chose to limit myself because I did not want the majority of the list to be the 60's or 70's.

    If I had to add more, these are some of the ones from my iPod playlist that would be included:
    Strange Brew by Cream
    House of the Rising Sun by the Animals
    Tequila Sunrise by the Eagles
    Evil Woman by ELO
    One Vision by Queen
    Long Cool Woman by the Hollies
    Straight On by Heart
    Dust in the Wind by Kansas
    Destroyer by the Kinks
    Strutter by KISS
    Hey Hey, My My by Neil Young
    Motor City Madhouse by Ted Nugent
    Refugee by Tom Petty
    Stone Cold Fever by Humble Pie
    For What It's Worth by Buffalo Springfield
    Presence of the Lord by Blind Faith

    Pretty much all of those choices are mainstream and cliche.

    Granted... I know, but I do know lots of people who want to play those songs... Cliche would be picking Bohemian Rhapsody for Queen... There comes a point where song selection from classic rock becomes more centered on the ones that still get radio play today. Most of those I heard on the radio yesterday doing errands in the car. Anyone can deem anything cliche unless it is neither a track that is not a single nor from an album that never got on the charts. There also comes a point where you want songs to be selling points, and usually you pick the minor hits and such as DLC. That is what I understood from reading the tracks they mention on the RB1 and RB2 box.

    If you want, I could probably mention artists I'd like to see in Rock Band...
    Alarm, Television, Richard Hell and the Voidoids, The Church, Bahaus, The Heartbreakers, Massacre (No Wave Band), The Damned, James Chance and the Contortions, or Teenage Jesus and the Jerks...
    I can get pretty non-mainstream. lol

    At least have a couple of gems. Try to balance hits and deep cuts.
  • citybugcitybug Opening Act
    edited May 2009
    I look at that list and I see some interesting choices other than hits... Strange Brew over Sunshine, Motor City Madhouse over Stranglehold or Cat Scratch, Destroyer for the Kinks... And this is one of the first times I have seen Humble Pie mentioned. lololol
  • timmay9timmay9 Washed Up

    Humble Pie? I've mentioned them a bunch. And I don't see Cream, Nugent, or the Kinks on your setlist.

    Also White Light/White Heat is by Velvet Underground, not just Lou Reed.

    That is good to hear. Oh, I have been meaning to edit the setlist. I mentioned them after hearing about the lack of Classic Rock in the post right before your first post. Thought you saw that listing. Lemme edit the main setlist.

    And I was referring to the version of White Light/White Heat from his album, Rock N Roll Animal.

    Granted, that is the case. But I think the Lou Reed version has a more prominent sound for the guitar which is lost in VU version.

    o Deadbolt by Thrice - That's not metal. Great song choice, but put it under alternative or rock.

    Also, you spelled Megadeth wrong.

    Overall, some pretty solid picks.

    Thanks for those fixes... It must have been a night where I was really asleep to put Thrice in there. LOL.
