Kariodude;3580547 said:Well, I guess my main point was that this doesn't really interest people that are already doing RBN stuff or are already in the RBN.

LittleCowDog;3584763 said:Well this is pretty lame. I assumed it was just a contest to showcase bands whose songs are already available but might not be getting much visibility in the store.
cherokeesam;3584930 said:Promote the bands you've already got, guys! Heck, even get the RBN Forums involved -- let the forums vote on next month's T-Mobile Artist, from the pool of the current month's available tracks....
Konador;3584975 said:If the forums got to vote, it'd be metal, metal, and more metal.
HMXHenry;3605803 said:Hey guys, just wanted to clue you in to today's announcement about the T-Mobile Artist of the Month.Also, to clarify, any band that submits a track through the link above will be included in the running for free authoring and inclusion in RBN. T-Mobile will have featured Artist of the Month picks through out the year to increase the visibility of groups already in RBN, but only one band is eligible for the grand prize. I think having the additional Artist of the Month picks will be a great way to showcase those bands that are already in RBN.

cherokeesam;3610911 said:Just picked up "Tongue Twister Typo" from Blackmarket, this month's T-Mobile AOTM. Great song, great choice. But that *is* different from what the contest rules originally laid out.....this track was authored by The Authority, and released on Day One (March 4). So.....HMX *isn't* authoring the tracks....??? And it doesn't have to be a song that hasn't already debuted on the RBN....??? Just seeking clarification.
DragoonXD;3610971 said:There are artists of the month that are picked from songs already released. Then there is the 'grand prize' for songs submitted that aren't in Rock Band yet. They are two separate things. Or at least that's how I interpret it.
davidshek;3611389 said:You interpreted it corrected. The Artist of the Month promotion and the Grand Prize (having your song authored by HMX) are two different things.
