    I'm really hoping a lot of the Rock Band Network songs have drum solos. I will keep track of those in this thread as well.

    Here's a vid of some of my favorite solos, but I saved the harder ones for the second video (and I guess the hardest ones for the third video in the far future.)

    I knew this existed but didn't know where. I need to pick up Iron Maiden (live). The solo is gravy.

    I played Ghostbusters for the first time this morning before heading to work. What an awesome surprise to have a drum solo in there. I'm glad you added it to the list.

    Doesn't one of the other Queen songs have a solo? I could've sworn I played one. It wasn't One Vision because I haven't played that yet.

    Edit - Under Pressure already there

    The Foo Fighters song is called "Word Forward", not "Word". Just so you know.

    Doom, I thought you meant We Are The Champions maybe had a drum solo, but I just doublechecked and it doesn't.

    Wow the Ghostbusters solo was fun. Didn't know they'd chart that part as such as I distinctly remember it from hearing that song 243241324x. :D

    I think YYZ by Rush identifies drum solos in practice mode. I know it's not from RB1(like the list you have) but I just thought I'd mention it.

    I meant to say before whatever cut-off point that songs could have identifiable drum solos, which is why Tow Sawyer (Original Version) made the cut. I will check YYZ when I get home. Thanks!

    I really wish there were more drum solos in Lego Rock Band, just because i want them. Though i sadly can't remember any that really qualified for it. Also, if drum solos are identifiable in the game, why doesn't play like that in the game. It would have been cool to have said drum solos in game.

    Real Wild Child and Ghostbusters both identify their drum solos and turn the note highway blue just like drum solos do in Rock Band 2 (one caveat is that Ghostbusters doesn't do this in the Rock Challenge if you play as band, not sure about solo, but it does it fine in make a setlist and free play.)

    That song in L:RB Real Wild Child has a pretty 'Wild' (pardon the pun) pair of drum solos. It's especially tough when you have never heard the song before in your life... :)

    I've heard part of that version, but when I saw the solo come up (decided to go for it on expert first), my reaction was almost akin to the first time a lot of people saw the drum chart for "What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse"..."How in the holy f*** am I supposed to do that?!" Somehow passed the entire song on my first run, but on my second run, I went into LEGO Recovery Mode during the second solo.

    Real Wild Child Song = a reason to add a vomiting emoticon to these forums.

    the beatles abbey road medley

    Doesn't count separate, since it's in "The End", which is part of the "Abbey Road Medley". "The End", yes. "Abbey Road Medley", no.

    Just saw this thread...

    A song I have been charting for RBN, which is now just waiting for the open beta to be reviewed, has a drum solo in the beginning that's short but particularly gnarly.

    "Rude Awakening" by Squeezebox

    The End is not only available as a stand-alone song and the Medley, but also in Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End. So it sort of counts 3 times, rather than two.
