    Wow, can't believe the (main) list is finished now. Feels like yesterday when we started.

    Btw, a link to the first setlist in the OP would be nice. ;)

    No problem at all, I know it was much easier for you if I made the threads because of the time difference.

    It's your call, I know necker put up a poll for the first setlist.

    Yep, Poll would be nice, if you can still edit it in legend.

    I think this setlist is a little little bit weaker than the first but still awesome.

    EDIT: Or maybe it is just as good as the first one. With the exception of the Radiohead song choice. :p

    I'm disappointed there's no Bloc Party, MMJ, Wilco, Interpol, or MGMT :(

    First setlist was full of Bloc Party. Almost all the important Bloc Party songs were on there, I guess that's why nobody voted for them anymore.
    Guess you could say the same about Radiohead, but well... it's Radiohead. (Although Everything In It's Right Place is a bad choice anyway)

    Wilco pack is on there now as well and I'm not a big fan of MMJ or MGMT. Interpol is good, but I don't miss them much.

    I'm just really happy about that Post-Rock pack. Especially about the Mighty Rio Grande. Probably the best Post Rock track ever. Wish this would be real, but unfortunately this will never happen in reality. :(

    Why do you only count DLC songs btw?
    Shouldnt we count all the songs on the main list as well? (it says "with DLC" after all, which kinda implies that it's a list of "something" plus DLC.) ^^
    Good catch, it should be correct now.

    Yup, think that's correct now. (There is an "s" missing in "2 songs" though ^^ )

    EDIT:
    ...but one thing... I was just thinking if we should count the bands from the first setlist and DLC as well? After all, we are not allowed to vote for them right now if they were on the first setlist or DLC which makes it like a whole platform of songs.

    I mean, I don't want it to be complicated or too much unnecessary work, but if I would just see this list of songs, I would say "Damn, there is not enough Radiohead in this game! Or no Bloc Party at all!" although the first setlist plus DLC has a lot of Radiohead and Bloc Party songs. Know what I mean?

    But well, it's not a big deal, so if you don't want to do the work or if you are afraid that it may become to complicated because people could ask themselves "where are all those numbers from?" (although you could write "Number of Songs per Band [First setlist and DLC included]) than I don't care much if you don't add it.

    EDIT2:

    Although I would be very curious to see which bands have the most songs on our "music platform". Pretty sure it's still Radiohead. xD

    CP, I think Legend has it fine with linking the first setlist in the master thread. And I have the new master thread linked at the bottom of every DLC thread, so there's ample opportunity for people to check and see what the indie/alt songs are among the first and second setlists.

    If Legend wants to, I guess he could use his last reserved space to tally total songs by band among the first and second setlists/DLC, giving an idea of which bands are best represented.

    EDIT: also, LoR in the song tally, Wilco has 3 songs

    The total for each band should be correct.

    The current totals for each band should be correct, and I'll update as each week of DLC is completed.

    I just noticed that Oasis are on both setlists and Animal Collective had DLC for the first "game" as well, but they are not listed as bands who have 2 songs in the game?

    It's fixed, if there's anything else that needs to be corrected, let me know.

    Ok, I will. It was just something I noticed when I quickly looked through the list. Not sure if there are some more missing, but I will let you know if I notice anything else. ;)

    EDIT: SSPU actually have 4 songs. One on both setlists and two as DLC. lol ^^

    Done, I must've forgotten to count their song on the second setlist when I cross-checked both lists. Another thing I wanted to mention was if you guys want to see the genre breakdown for both setlists, that can be done as well.

    Well, of course not bad to have, but not really necessary as well. Don't think the interest in that is really high. But it's your choice. If you want to do it, do it. I don't necessarily need it though.

    EDIT: Some others missing: Mogwai with 3 songs and This Will Destroy You with 2 songs. (Just noticed that because theyre two of my fav bands - I may double check the whole lists for you if I find a little bit more time)

    Great job LoR!

    I just hope HMX takes a look at this and finally stops to release Metal, Classic Rock and Lady Gaga and starts giving us good music.
