Best songs you'd never heard before RBN?

Musically speaking (i.e., not the funness of the chart), what are your favorite songs that RBN introduced you to?

I think that's the best part about RBN: discovering music you never would have heard of.

Personally, I really liked:

The B.O.L.T - Genius
Mark Mallman - Do You Feel Like Breaking Up?
Reverend Horton Heat - Indigo Friends
Longwave - Secrets Are Sinister
Cetan Clawson - White Heat
Fake-Shark Real Zombie - Angel Lust

I also ended up buying both Main Drag CDs because I liked their songs on RBN. I'm considering getting the You Shriek songs because they're really good (based on the previews) but they seem like they'd be kind of boring in-game so I might just end up buying them through another medium.

    "He Sleeps in a Grove" by Amberian Dawn

    Sounds like something that belongs on my Pandora playlist.

    Kirstin Hersh - "Fortune" and "Mississippi Kite" both get very honourable mentions from me, but so far You Shriek's "No Heroes" has been that track that came out of nowhere on me and I can't stop playing it right now.

    Have only bought 12 tracks so far, but haven't been disappointed by any of them. So many more are on the list of one's I would like to get but my MSPoints are quickly running out dangnabbit! :(

    Anyone know of any good sales on them.....?:)

    I was already addicted to Rock Band, but the Network is reminding me of just how much I'm addicted to music.
    Keep up the good work to everyone inviolved and thank you!

    I'm really digging this Eulogies song released today. Really enjoy the sound. I think I'm going to examine the rest of their catalog on LaLa.

    Also like "Tongue Twister Typo" by Black Market.

    Any time I hear about someone learning about KH in Rock Band, it makes me happy. She's been rocking well enough and long enough that a lot more people ought to know about her, and if just a few more people do, then I figure RBN's worth the sweat.

    (Also, I'd LOVE it if she decided to put some of her 50 Foot Wave material in RB; that'd teach EVERYONE how to rock.)

    Since purchasing 25 of the launch songs from RBN, I've only 5-Lightered two of them: Even Rats and River of Tuoni. One of these I know from Guitar Hero; I'll let the audience at home figure out which one I hadn't heard before RBN...

    If Trucks Drank Beer by Error 404 is, by far, the most fun song in RB. Folks, just remember that rock is NOT to be taken seriously. This song is true to R&R tradition.

    i listened to the song clips of over 80 songs that first day, got that children of nova song, and then got their ep/lp. it's only 6 songs, but they are in the 5-7 min range, and it is really awesome... thanks RBN!!!
