    Technically, the other thread focuses on albums, not songs.

    Alright, I'm pretty sure I covered everything. If I missed anything, feel free to tell me, and I'll change it right away.

    Edit: And no, I don't think there's been anything else like this. I searched for it and nothing else came up.

    There has, I just think it died and wasn't updated, so this is for the better.

    Well, yeah, I did, but I didn't type out everything. I copied it from another site.

    I'm way too color blind to read most of the list, let alone denote the differences between the songs.

    ...you better hope nobody links the other thread covering this (I know there was one, and also one covering the 500 greatest albums).

    Sadly, the rolling stone's list is ALMOST COMPLETELY utter crap. After top 50 they came out with random songs that I can't really stand. Anyway, good job.

    Would you like me to do something about that, like put (RB2) in parentheses if it's an RB2 song?

    I think it would be cool if at the end you put something like [xxx/500] to denote how many of the tracks we currently have.

    Aight, I will, but I'm warning you, it'll take a while.
    Edit: Actually, that took a lot shorter than I thought.

    Why not keep away from having the whole list being multiple colors, but keeping it still constructive? I think it would be better to keep the unselected songs gray, with the RB inclusions bolded and white. Having the [RB1], [RB2], [DLC], [TBRB], [LRB], and [RBN] following the track being color coded (keeping colors in check since lime green or blue are hard to read for me, IDK about other people]

    Example:

    1. Blah -- The Blahs
    2. Whoot -- The Whooters [RB1]
    3. Yahoo -- The Yahoos [RBN]
    4. Sucky Example -- Is A Sucky Example

    Around 45 of those songs are on GH, only like 3 are pre-GH3
    GH also has the "second greatest song"

    RB has more though, I'm looking at the thread while your editing it, doesn't look pretty

    You can add all Experience songs into our list, since it's been confirmed we're getting at least Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland.

    Wow at the Rolling Stone. That list is God awful. Do they REALLY think Smells Like Teen Spirit is the 9th greatest song of all time? Really?

    No, sadly, it's all too real.

    I was thinking of holding off until after their release date was announced, but I guess I will.

    I don't think so. My list is accurate, I'd say, unless they're releasing more DLC for that game.

    I just ignored that because I'm not a Hendrix fan.

    So glad that song is coming.

    I hate to be the guy that does this, but how many Hendrix songs have you heard? How can you only like that one song, i mean its possible, but i'd suggest listening to other songs from the Experience, unless you have already done that.

    I gave the entire listen to the album that came out and didn't like any of them. I've also listened to a few others out side of that album and nothing has caught my ear. For whatever reason, I love All Along the Watchtower, but no other Hendrix songs.
