edited June 2010 in The Rock Band Network
So, I have a US RB2 and I live in Ireland. I frequently can't look at the RBN store for some reason as it always times out. I was wondering if people could list some really good songs for RBN that are available on PS3, I play expert guitar. I already have Australia, Business Time and Code Monkey. Thanks people...

    "Even Rats" and "Push Push (Lady Lightning)" are solid.

    I haven't played them all on Guitar, I've been focusing primarily on drums, but these are all good songs:
    Demon Woman
    Lady in a Blue Dress
    Energy (repetitive but fun)
    Push Push (Lady Lightning)
    Most Beautiful Girl in the Room
    Both songs by Third Eye Blind
    If you're a good (read, GREAT) expert guitarist, anything by Steve Vai

    There really needs to be a universal standard set for whether songs are noted Artistname - Songname, or Songname - Artistname. Because some of these I know are the former, some of these I know are the latter, and (as a result), some of these I have no idea which is the artist name and which is the song name.

    Because bands can choose their pricepoint, and some bands (for reasons entirely their own) wind up going above the $1.99 standard.

    See the enormous Tragically Hip thread that's largely about their choice to release "Blow at High Dough" at 240MSP.

    That was from the list of RBN released songs.

    When HMX posted the first batch it was artist, then song.

    From there on out it was song, then artist.


    Hence the cock up.

    I'll get it fixed.

    I'd highly recommend The Complexity of Light by Children of Nova, especially if you're a drummer.

    I second the motion, as a guitarist.

    Other suggestions (mostly previously mentioned):
    • "Drunken Lullabies (Live)" by Flogging Molly. Slightly tricky rhythm is really fun and easy to get into.
    • "Even Rats" by The Slip. Nothing spectacular. I like it for the GH nostalgia.
    • Tracks by Steve Vai. I have "The Attitude Song" and "Get the Hell Out of Here". If you're concerned about difficulty, and would call yourself "borderline" on whether you can handle it, get "The Attitude Song". Maybe 2-3 short spots that might give you trouble.
    • "He Sleeps in a Grove" by Amberian Dawn. Fun song with a bit of a nasty solo.
    • "Push Push (Lady Lightning)" by Bang Camaro. If you've played GH2, this pretty much goes without saying.
    • "The Mob Goes Wild" by Clutch. Just really, really catchy.
    • "We Are Not Anonymous" by Unearth. Depends on whether you like this type of music. I like the solo.
    • "Business Time" by Flight of the Conchords. Initially looks like the nightmare that is "Kung Fu Fighting", but manageable once you get the HoPos down.
    • Tracks by Third Eye Blind. Caution: These are re-records, and therefore might not bring you all the way back down memory lane. I still like them. The vocals are VERY different, however.
    • Tracks by All That Remains. I love this band, and love the tracks released.
    • "Remedy" by Seether. I love the daylights out of this band, and this is one of their bigger hits. Neat little guitar solo, as well.
    • "I Know What I Am" by Band of Skulls. Simple but catchy. Neat little solo.

    I really enjoy Collapsing, Disengage, Push Push, Stick Stickly and Complexity of Light on drums and We Are Not Anonymous is like the most fun guitar song I have ever played, drums aren't too bad either

    For vocals, Austrailia, Flight of Concord songs, Talk About, When I Get Home You are So Dead, Third Eye Blind songs, and Mechanical Love are all really good.

    For guitar, most are pretty good but I'll tell you the ones to avoid:
    Mordecai - stupidly hard and then pretty easy, just not a good combo.
    He Sleeps in a Grove - the whole song is fast paced forced strums, stupid solo as well
    Business Time - Kung fu Fighting riff mostly
    All Jonathon Coulton except Ikea - boring chords almost entirely, Ikea actually has some variety and a solo though
    Sequestered in Memphis - very standard chordfest
    Being Here - chords the whole time
    Day of Mourning - some parts are fun, but overall the strumming kills it
    Disengage - very repetive and the patterns you play aren't even that fun
    Energy - standard chords
