King Tony's RB4 Setlist

edited February 2011 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Alright, so here is my latest RB4 setlist. I was going to start with a LEGO 2 setlist (which I posted) but I thought about it and really I'd prefer to just have RB4 next. Doesn't have to have anything too innovative, just some tweaks to the new RB3 engine. A few fixes, new goals, new road challenges, etc. The return of World Tour mode (with some tweaks). Maybe the return of Solo Tour.

I think a cool idea would be to have a new Road Challenge pop up every week. It would help a lot with people who think the challenges were over too quickly.

Anyways, here is my setlist! 105 songs total and what do you know, not too 2000's heavy :D I tried to get some songs in here that I haven't used before and I think almost every song has harmonies. Most have keys of some sort! What does everyone think?

    Wow, 105 songs? The one I just put up had 98 and I thought that was a lot.

    But I like this. Great Scorpions choice, love that Nightwish and Within Temptation are on it, and I remember from your LRB2 setlist that you also realize the sheer vox glory that is Pat Benatar's Invincible.

    One thing - I think All Along the Watchtower will be DLC at some point before RB4 comes out, unless HMX holds off on it until afterwards.

    Pretty good, but I wouldn't use Don't Stop Me Now. We have lots of Queen already, and the guitarist would be sitting there until the 2-second solo kicks in

    And way to much bubblegum pop. Avoiding Amy Whinehouse was one thing, but having to avoid Hanson, Taylor Swift, Coldplay, Britney Spears, Avril Lavigne, and the Bravery would be too much.

    It's okay, I think your progressive could be a little more flexible. I would probably move "Bailamos" to POP, world is assumingly, really reserved for purely native music.

    Yeah, I think 98 or 105 is a pretty good number actually. Since I added the new genres I had to go bigger or I would be cutting some variety out, which I already had to do anyways.

    The Hendrix track could come out before RB4 I guess, but we'll see.

    I wanted to get all new bands in with the nu-metal category. It's why I didn't have SOAD, LP, Limp Bizkit, Korn, etc. :)

    Husker Du was a hardcore punk band, but with their Candy Apple Grey album they slowly transitioned to more of an alt rock type band. It was one of the earlier examples along with The Replacements of punk-type bands evolving their sound to more of an alt-type sound (Green Day, AFI, etc).

    I thought about this but in watching the video it seems that Brian May is playing something before that solo. Maybe it's just low in the mix? I dunno.

    I'll give you Britney, Avril, and I guess Taylor Swift but the others aren't really bubblegum, imo. Check out that Hanson track, it's certainly not "MMMbop" :)

    Fair enough. I guess prog rock really isn't an area where I'm too deeply versed. I'm not sure but Latin might be it's own main genre now, I'll have to check the RBN 2.0 stuff but if it is I'll just switch it there.

    Brian May plays more when he plays live so he doesn't get bored, but only live. The studio version has nothing except the solo. Maybe find a live version to put in the list?

    And I didn't mean they were all literally in the genre of bubblegum pop, just that there are a lot of bands you'd find on pop radio. A lot of this seems like Lego Rock Band with some extreme metal, which isn't exactly a good combo

    I like this list :D

    The 80's are my favorite set and I didn't think there was too much "bubble-gum pop."

    Sorting the songs into genres is really cool, but everyone will have a different opinion of what the song should be categorized as... Personally, I don't think anyone should comment on the genre a song is in on this list, mainly because it's mostly based on opinion, but that's just my opinion...

    Oh okay, I see what you mean. Maybe, I'll see what kind of live versions I can find out there. Or maybe I'll just change the song entirely.

    I did try to include some more popular artists. I kinda feel that it would give RB a kick in the pants if there were some bigger name modern artists in the setlist. Not too many though, again it was all about variety.

    The 50's and 60's were amazing, and the rest was... Still good, but not quite as great. Worst case scenario, it has Nightwish which would make it an instant buy anyway :). And I really respect that the song you picked wasn't Nemo.

    Other notes:

    Thank you for not picking Knights of Cydonia.

    Oh and the Queen and Santana inclusions are great too. I'd really love this.

    --

    Ooh look, people complaining about the pop music. I have no complaint there, it makes for good variety. And worst comes to worse, they're at least really funny songs to get your drunk (or in my case sober but really stupid) friends to sing.

    I agree. Find a live version of Don't Stop Me Now. But you damn well better make sure it's perfect!

    I have admit though, Britney Spears brings the lulz, but also the *barf*. I'm okay with stuff like that, but just not Spears. Spice Girls would be more accepted at least from me (though, that's not to say I'm exactly a "fan" of their's). Besides that, great set!

    I'd buy it and then block like 3 songs. Good work!

    Ooh look, people complaining about the pop music. I have no complaint there, it makes for good variety. And worst comes to worse, they're at least really funny songs to get your drunk (or in my case sober but really stupid) friends to sing.

    The problem is that it's overshadowed with too much power pop/pop punk. A couple are acceptable, but as for a decade with a lot of variety, he could've gotten a little more creative. A few deep cuts would've been nice to see too, Rock Band always had a history of adding such deep cuts.

    I've got to admit, the 80s and earlier choices are quite impressive, above-average. Usually the classic material is the hardest to keep interest in. The 54 tracks alone are worth the purchase.

    You, my man, should be on staff. The only thing I would add would be some MegaDeath, Symphony of Destruction.

    It's pronounced Megadeth.

    The 50's and 60's were amazing, and the rest was... Still good, but not quite as great. Worst case scenario, it has Nightwish which would make it an instant buy anyway :). And I really respect that the song you picked wasn't Nemo.

    Other notes:

    Thank you for not picking Knights of Cydonia.

    Oh and the Queen and Santana inclusions are great too. I'd really love this.

    I usually go with newer Nightwish cuz I feel that's what the band would want. I know the pop stuff toes a line, but I feel that for variety's sake the line needs to be crossed sometimes. Gotta have songs for everyone :D

    haha Britney would be a hot button issue here on the forums if it ever happened, I just figure she's a major artist that would come out of nowhere to show up in RB

    I admit I could have done a few deep cuts, usually I include a few but this time I really didn't. It was not intentional but I guess I just thought of these songs first.

    Great song. Wanted to get Metallica back in the action on this one though and since they do the same sort of metal, I had to choose one. I think we'll get that as a full album eventually anyways.

    I would buy this just for Fire Woman.

    Great choices once again! I hope I could bother to finish my RB4 setlist soon, your setlist sure motivates me to do so :D

    alright, here we go

    "Don't Stop Me Now (Live)"

    Sacrificing a bit of vocal integrity for the guitar, which is not to say that Freddie sounds anything less than awesome but the vocal structuring is all over the place. Lots of ad-libbing.

    Yeah, I guess all the teen divas would be a little controverisal...but at least they would be easy haha. Visions was obnoxious and borderline impossible.

    Tony, if you get a minute, I'd be curious to see what you thought of my RB setlist since you're like the most prolific setlist creator around here heh. I think it's already fallen off the first page, but I got a link in the signature.

    Same here. I'm this close to finally finishing my newest (and, I think, best) one.

    Considering you have my three most wanted bands (U2, Coldplay, Depeche Mode), I would buy this in an instant.

    Oh you have Muse as well. Good choice.

    Do you like The Killers? I'm curious as to why we haven't seen a pack of them with keyboards pop up yet, I think they would be perfect for it preferrably Read My Mind or Jenny Was a Friend of Mine.
