Flogging Molly? 5FDP?

edited March 2010 in The Rock Band Network
I don't understand. I thought the Network was for unsigned bands. Why is Flogging Molly and 5 Finger Death Punch in the Network?

    It's not for unsigned bands, it's for anyone who can get the rights and chart the songs.
    ANYONE, not just unknown bands.

    It's primarily for unsigned/independent artists, but bigger bands can use it as well. Hell, there are songs by Blondie and Smashing Pumpkins in playtesting.

    It's for whoever wants to use it. Regardless of their celebrity status. You'd think we as the RB community would be doing a better job of making sure that people were aware of this instead of perpetuating the stereotype that the RBN is "primarily" (or "only") for indie/unknown artists.

    The EMI record label their under has one of their employees charting songs for the RBN. So expect more artists from them, and if these 2 songs sell well then it safe to assume they'll include more from that artist.

    Bigger then flogging Molly? Only people who obsess over arguing who is the greatest guitarist/drummer/singer would really believe that. I know his name, but I don't know a single song from him even after buying 3 from him and watching him on TMS. If you want big names, you'll have to wait for EMI to release their songs, until then it's going to be primarily in the moderate to groupie crazed following bands (stroke 9, flight of the concords, amberian dawn)

    I wasn't familiar with Atomic, but after peer reviewing it this morning, it is a definite day one purchase for me when it hits the store.

    Fun little song.

    In terms of big-name bands on board, there's also Billy Idol with "Dancing with Myself," Finger Eleven with "Paralyzer," Drowning Pool with "Bodies," Third Eye Blind with "Semi-Charmed Life" and "Jumper" re-records, and a couple songs by Creed, Seether and Evanescence that I don't remember right now.

    that's generally where his name comes into topics of discussion the most, heaven forbid I openly admit I'm not a fan either to help illustrate my point.

    I was referring to flogging Molly and Steve vai to be on the same level of well known bands rather then making it seem like one was better then the other. I only recently discovered flogging Molly at warped tour and Float so I can't really say I'm the bbiggest fan neither

    Are you disappointed? Should unsigned bands be the only ones allowed to use RBN? :rolleyes:
