Lego Rock Band song predictions.

With LRB being confirmed as exportable, anyone wanna take bets on songs that will be on the setlist? (besides the ones confirmed of course.)
Please have some reasoning behind your songs. No Ultimate Setlist material here.

My predictions:
"Time of the Season"- The Zombies
We recieved two of their songs, but not their biggest single. Much like Tom Petty, I'm sure this is the classic case of 2 DLC, 1 on disc.

"Zombie"- The Cranberries
We recieved Linger over the equally popular and infinitely more fun to play Zombie. I highly doubt HMX would license one without the other, and it seems like a good song for this game (with the whole challenges aspect of the game, they could have a lego zombie or something).

"Somebody to Love"- Jefferson Airplane
Again, I doubt HMX licensed just one song from them. This is a pretty recognizable song, and would be fun to play for children and adults both.

Of course, any of these songs could show up in RB3 instead.

    Wait! There are rumors of a Lego Rock Band? The humanity!


    So I'd say Dancing With Myself - Billy Idol and Burning Down the House - Talking Heads for the same reason as your predictions.

    While those could both be true, both of those artists had songs on RB2 as well. So it could have been a case of HMX licensing a Talking Heads six pack and deciding to put Psycho Killer on disc. Although it is odd that they left out Burning Down the House.

    This is one of my favourite songs ever! Haha, I hope you're right about this prediction :P.

    This, though my senses are leading more towards Beverly Hills than Island in the Sun.

    Wouldve been Buddy Holly but we already have that.

    This'd be a good game for a few bands to make a comeback:

    B-52's - Rock Lobster
    Devo - Whip It
    Kiss - Rock And Roll All Night
    The Mighty Mighty Bosstones - The Impression That I Get
    The Go-Go's - Vacation


    Also, I won't make specific song guesses, but here are some bands that seem likely to me, based on the sort of songs they produce:

    All-American Rejects (Swing Swing?)
    Barenaked Ladies (One Week?)
    Journey (Separate Ways? Stone In Love? I dunno)
    R.E.M. (It's the End of the World as We Know It?)
    Freezepop (Science Genius Girl?)

    Also, while not a returning Rock Band artist, Joe Esposito's "You're The Best" (from The Karate Kid) would be a great fit for this game

    Actually, seeing the way things are working with that setlist, combined with the way it'd work with RB2:

    B-52's - Rock Lobster (We've had a semi-confirmation of more of them, it's an incredibly recognizable song, and pretty fun to play)
    Blue Oyster Cult - Godzilla (It's, again, one of their most recognizable songs, and would finish off a tour challenge as their third song)
    R.E.M. - (It's The) End of the World As We Know It (Seriously, I hate to use the "very popular hit, not yet in RB, would round off a challenge" card, but it fits SO WELL with SO MANY SONGS)

    Peter Gabriel- "Sledgehammer" - a popular song by someone who hasn't been in RB yet plus they could have construction workers breaking blocks with sledgehammers.

    Weezer- "Island in the Sun"- I would have guessed Pork and Beans would have been the Weezer song for this game but it came as dlc. There are plenty of lego sets that involve palm trees and boats so they could incorporate that into the background.

    Sammy Hagar- "I Can't Drive 55"- Im not sure if there is already an opening song for this game but it would fit with the car openings the regular rockband games get.

    Paramore - Misery Business
    Fall Out Boy - Dance, Dance
    Queens of the Stone Age - No One Knows
    Ramones - Rock N Roll High School
    Weezer - Beverly Hills
    R.E.M. - (It's The) End of the World As We Know It
    Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Gold Lion
    Talking Heads - Burning Down the House

    And I think we'll see tracks from Nirvana, The White Stripes, Pantera, Talking Heads, Korn and The Raconteurs. Well maybe not a few of those but Iggy Pop, Elton John and Tom Petty are already in.

    Nirvana - Rape Me

    general idiocy aside, I like the R.E.M song. Itd be a pretty good one for Lego

    why yes I would

    Also, you can count all of these bands out from being in Lego.

    Reason being we got the newly leaked songs from the GH5 comparison chart, so we know all of the songs we're getting from the GH5 bands for the next few months.

    Burning Down The House - Talking Heads (odd omission from Talking Heads pack - most well-known song by them and fits in with general theme of building/destroying things).

    Shiny Happy People - R.E.M. (Legos are a kind of shiny, happy person, right? If not, ITEOTWAWKI (AIFF) or Stand are possibilites).

    Dashboard - Modest Mouse (fun modern indie track - if Float On weren't already in RB2 I would have said that)

    DARE - Gorillaz (to me, anyway, an odd omission from the Gorillaz pack - could find its way into L:RB)

    Rock Lobster - B-52s (A B-52s song was promised over a year ago in an interview with Fred Schneider - L:RB seems a good platform for more B-52s to be released).

    Aerosmith - Dude (Looks Like a Lady)
    Cheap Trick - I Want you to Want Me (Live)

    Third Eye Blind - Semi Charmed Life
    U2 - Vertigo
    Weezer - Island in the Sun
    The White Stripes - Seven Nation Army
    The Who - The Kids Are Alright
    most of it, just hopeful wishing, some of them might actually get a place in LRB

    I'm betting on Love Shack. It's always played at our dances at school, and it's more well known by our generation. (thats up for debate thanks to Family Guy)
    But I would prefer Rock Lobster.

    "Zombie"- The Cranberries?

    It's for kids do you know what zombie is about,war, what did you think the phrase "in your head" meant shes refering to getting shot in the head. But theres a chance it could be in it but still.

    Exactly.

    I don't know why people are still predicting teen to adult material for a songlist that is aimed at KIDS. CHILDREN, people.

    Kids are NOT going to sing about death, about sex (explicit or suggestive), about drugs, about booze or any of that stuff. And they're not going to sing sad songs or slow songs.

    PEPPY, people! Think PEP
    wheeeeee

    Given the nature of LEGOs...."Love Shack" seems more appropriate than "Rock Lobster" if you think the B-52s will have more songs.

    True, it's a protest song about violence, but I don't think it has anything to do with getting shot in the head. And I wouldn't necessarily rule it out, kids (and adults) would have a ton of fun with this song.
    A lot of the other predictions on here make a lot of sense though, I'd love to see songs like Rock Lobster and Vacation. Whip It, something by Journey, One Week all make a lot of sense too...

    My thinking was that Rock Lobster is a whimsical song where Love Shack is a bit "suggestive" for a kids game, but I could see them overlooking that and using the more popular song.

    Also, I'm personally hoping that they save Love Shack for a game with 3-part harmonies, since it's really not the full experience if you don't have multiple vocalists on that song.

    Apparently theres a part where you summon rain to destroy a robot, so i am crossing my fingers that the song you play is Rusted From The Rain by Billy Talent.
