    Easter = Christian Rock Bands that (for the most part) are pretty awesome! Pleasant surprise, especially for Skillet. I've been a fan of that band for 13 years...nice to see them get their moment (although it's not even CLOSE to their best song...check 'em out!)

    But by that same token, most weeks shouldn't be utter crap weeks.
    Damn it! have You listened to the SONGS, please do before you say that these are utter crap, Meant to Live is a very poular song that alot of people know and these artists aren't some indie acts, they are pretty popular but not like some huge bands.

    I'm familiar with the Switchfoot track and a friend of mine is huge on Amberlin other than that I really don't know what to make of the week. It's not really that diverse, but there's still 6 new bands, I'm sure there's some people happy.

    I wonder which version we're getting of "The Feel Good Drag"? The original 2005 version or the 2008 re-record? I'd guess probably the latter one.

    Edit: I didn't noticed the title didn't have "the" in it. That definitely confirms we're getting the 2008 version. I much prefer the original, but oh well.

    Very excited for Skillet, TFK, and Anberlin, although it would have been nice to have a better Skillet song. Might get Switchfoot as that was the only song I ever appreciated from them. I'll have to check out the other two.

    Total crap. This should come out on RBN. Give us good stuff!
    Seems like a well thought out post. Did you even listen to any of the songs?

    At first I was like "Oh ****! That's disappointing!"

    Then I did the reasonable thing and actually gave the songs a shot. Yay YouTube!
    But I was still all like "That's disappointing!" Which means... Yay songs from RBN week!

    Oh, and this only reminded me of how we don't have "Fire It Up" by Black Label Society. (From GH1 for those non-GH buffs out there) That song was moderately awesome.

    Not popular with me. Never heard of them before. They might be good...I might actually listen and buy them (but I doubt it). But that's not why I started playing RB. I don't need to learn new songs just to play a game, when there's so many more well-known songs (read: older songs) out there that haven't seen the light of day in RB.

    When I say utter crap, I mean that it's another week of relying on the Network for maybe 1 new song. It's crap to wait another week for HMX to deliver the goods, only to find myself staring at the computer screen in complete confusion and/or disappointment. No offense to the actual bands, but I could really care less about current music for the most part. I'm not in their demographic.

    But you see, that would be making an informed judgment, and such a thing went out of fashion years ago, especially on the internet. It's much easier to lash out blindy with unsupported dogma...because after all, Rock Band revolves around him and only him!

    I admit I didn't see the Easter connection right away, I suppose that's appropriate.

    So far, until I Youtube all of them.... all I can say is...Thank you RB for saving me hundreds of dollars this year.

    Guess I need to find a different game for a few months then check out the offerings.

    This is a pleasant surprise. I'll have to get the Superchick track for my sisters. I am somewhat familiar with the other bands with the exception of Skillet.

    These bands don't appeal to me in the slightest, but I can't complain with how awesome last week was for me.

    One of my favorite DLC weeks ever, I'm shocked at the reputation of this week so far...

    They could have used a better Superchick song (but Stand in the Rain is not too bad!), I would have preferred Alive, just because it is amazing. It is sung by a female, which is nice for variety in Rock Band.

    I HIGHLY recommend everyone take a listen to Feel Good Drag by Anberlin. One of my favorite songs of all-time.

    I haven't heard Switchfoot in a while actually. Thousand Foot Krutch is in NHL, I don't mind that song.

    I'll probably get about 5 songs this week. Which is a huge addition, honestly.

    All I've heard is the Skillet track and the TFK track. Both are absolutely terrible.

    Will definately skip this week. It'll take a while for DLC to get back up on it's feet after Hendrix....

    Oh, boy. Modern bands that I don't care for. =/

    Oh, well. Whatever makes HMX the most money, I guess...
    Um...what? That doesn't begin to make the slightest bit of sense, you know...if HMX were out to get the most money possible, they'd be releasing songs that people have actually heard about, by bands that have some name recognition.

    And to everyone here who said it: Stop with the "this should be on RBN", please. Did anyone honestly believe HMX would completely turn their publishing strategy on its ear after RBN started? That would be a ) pretty odd after over two years of DLC, b ) pretty damn stupid and c ) a slap in the face to the PS3 and Wii players. RBN is not generally available for everyone, it would be nice to remember that every once in a while.

    I'll have to listen to all of this, since I've actually not heard of even one of these bands. Surprise me, HMX. And please not in the Little Fish kind of way.

    A Christian band week.....Awesome since I'm a believer, Switchfoot is awesome, Definete buy, Anberlin's a maybe, Hawk nelsons okay, I wish relient K had been included this week
    Same! :D Except for Hawk Nelson. I used to love them, but lately (as in their last two cds) they've been crap (not to mention their lead singer is a complete jerk...).

    I wish it would've been some RK instead of HN as well. But hey, beggars can's be choosers :rolleyes: I'm just glad we're getting some the songs we're getting!

    I'll never forget the time I went to see Switchfoot (they played with Emery, another amazing band imo). That was one of the best shows I've ever been to...unless the RK/Paramore show I'm going to next month tops it! haha :p
