Rock Band 4

Here’s my dream setlist for RB4, fit with 140 songs!

Note: I know, there are too many 80s songs and that metal is overbalanced, but it’s MY setlist. Nonetheless, I want to have a relatively balanced setlist, so any CONSTRUCTIVE criticism on the variety will be taken into consideration.

Songs with asterix following imply having a Big Rock Ending. Note: BRE labeling in progress.

    Well I really like the setlist, one). because it has a lot of Metal I like and 2). most of the non Metal choices I like also. Though this would never work for a real game's setlist because of the unbalance in genres. But I have to say that this is probably in the top 3 of the ultimate setlists that I like, though it's sort of unfair to others that are more balanced, but still I like it :D.

    Also if you want to make a setlist that's more balanced, one day. Then also consider genres like Indie Rock, Emo, Alternative, Grunge and others.

    Far too much metal.

    And the fact there is absolutely no alternative and indie on your setlist is unforgivable. Ridiculously unbalanced.

    1/5

    @Megalron

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Main reason I didn't put any indie rock, emo, alternative, or grunge in here was because i absolutely loathe those genres. I mean, RHCP, Foo Fighters, and My Chemical Romance are like my least favorite bands in the world. But I'll still try to implement a little grunge or something, cause I want a more balanced setlist.

    @Fly Guy

    Well, Muse does suck. I can see you dominantly like Alternative. Well, I don't, and it is my wish list. But, as I said before, I do want to make it more balanced.

    HOW DARE YOU?! Alice in Chains or Pretty Girls Make Graves could add some balance but To Each His Own

    Did somebody change the rules to these threads lately? Setlists are about simulating what the next Rock Band would be for the entire audience, not a bunch of songs you want in the game.

    Those aren't the only 3 alternative bands in the world. Alt/Indie is an incredibly wide scope of numerous genres. To say you hate the entire genre, in truthfulness, you haven't looked hard enough through it.

    @GameMaster

    I thought you liked my setlist! But in all seriosity, I do have some appreciation for Alice in Chains, so I might put one of their songs on there.

    @Fly Guy

    RHCP, Foo Fighters, and MCR aren't the only alt bands I've heard of, they're just some of the most popular ones. I dislike alternative music because the music is neither pleasant to listen to (like rock or even pop) or displays any instrumental talent (when was the last time there was an Alternative guitar solo?). But that's just my opinion.

    I know how to take criticism, I will add some grunge, pop, punk, and (shudders) alternative.

    And it would be helpful if I could have feedback on the songs that're actually ON the setlist, not the ones that didn't make it.
  • FlyGuyLXIFlyGuyLXI Headl!ner

    Most alternative music is about integration and not about guitar solos. What one could lack in instrumental talent can make up for songwriting ability.
  • coolsnoopy97coolsnoopy97 Rising Star
    edited August 2011
    In my opinion, alternative songs aren't lyrically deep, but each to their own. I just prefer metal, due to the incredible talent required to play each instrument (sometimes even keys!) to sing (metal isn't all rasping, heard Ronnie James Dio?) and equally deep lyrics.

    If you want alternative in the set-list, I'm open to suggestions.

    I always thought that a person's ultimate setlist could be either way. It could be a simulation of what would be pleasing to as many audiences. Or it could be just almost like a setlist/wishlist or just a setlist you'd like to have in a game, but not realistic. I may be wrong on this though.

    Edit. The ultimate setlist thread is also to say what songs you want in Rock Band too so I don't see a problem with this setlist, I just don't consider it a realistic one.

    Oh and to the OP, Flyguy is familiar with Metal from what I've heard him say and he's in to a variety of genres. If I remember correctly.

    Well, I added 5 songs. To add some hip-hop, I put Bring the Noise by Anthrax. For some grunge, Black Rain by Soundgarden, and some more punk, Deadfall by Snot. I also remembered there was one Alternative band I liked to a certain degree, Jane's Addiction, so I put one of their songs in too (Stop!). And, although it's rock, I also added Call Me the Breeze by Lynyrd Skynyrd, because I was feeling this setlist needed some Skynyrd.

    Obviously, there's more to come.

    But really, I could use some feedback on the actual song choices, as I know there's some inbalance to resolve.

    This isn't exactly about the selections. But you could get rid of a few songs from the 80's and 70's and put some more in to the 90's, 00's and possibly a couple more into the 10's. For a balance between decades.

    Deadfall is a song I'm begging for in Rock Band, great add same thing with Stop! and I do like it, it's just the hate on Alternative hurts me alot (Seeing Faith No More and Red Hot Chili Peppers make my top 10 artist of all time) Possible add some Faith No More like Easy or Surprise! You're Dead! or for the lack of Pop-Rock try Hey Superstar by Madina Lake. Also for the 2010's how about Fairy Tales by Hypernova

    Might add some Faith No More, they're not horrible. But I simply can't stand RHCP, mainly because people think they're rock when they're just alternative rap. But it's just my opinion.

    Im gonna go out on a limb here and say youve played Guitar Hero a lot?

    Nearly half the setlist is from a GH game haha.

    Also we already have For The Love Of God

    I do play Guitar Hero, but several RB players do as well. And yeah, I admit, there are several songs here on GH games, but well, Guitar Hero has such awesome setlists anyway, it's difficult to avoid them completely.

    And I didn't know we had For the Love of God! RBN? Gonna buy it immediately, lol. I'll look for a different Steve Vai song.

    It was released as a single in 2010. It's kinda weird, though, that the song took six years to be released outside of the Halo 2 soundtrack and illegal online downloads.

    I generally dislike metalcore bands (which, contrary to popular belief are NOT metal) like Disturbed, but I do like A7X and a little Slipknot, so I might add some of them. But metal is the last thing this song list needs, lol.

    It's actually true: bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, and Slipknot are NOT metal, they're metalcore, a big difference. If you told any metal purist that A7X was metal, they'd immediately flame you on your 'stupid taste in music'. I'm not that obsessed, but I know they're metalcore. I never heard of this Map of Metal, but the Metal Archives do not have Slipknot catalogued and those bands have been defined as metalcore in the past.

    Ted Nugent-Stranglehold (Southern Rock, 1975) Ted Nugent
    ZZ Top-La Grange (Southern Rock, 1973) Tres Hombres- I think Sharp Dressed Man is more suited, but this is okay.

    Some songs I haven't seen on a GH game, but I like new songs too. There are a lot of GH songs here, but I couldn't care less. No pop here, and glam? I'd only consider one of these bands glam.

    Whitesnake-Still of the Night (Metal, 1987) Whitesnake
    Yngwie Malmsteen’s Rising Force-Black Star (Metal, 1984) Rising Force

    -There are some songs that I know from GH, and ones I've never heard before. Oh, and hardly any pop and glam here, or lack of. I'd consider maybe 2-3 bands here glam.

    1990s (15 songs)

    Anthrax feat. Public Enemy-Bring the Noise (Hip-Hop, 1991) Attack of the Killer B's
    Buckethead-20th Century Boy (Metal, 1998) Great Jewish Music
    Death-Suicide Machine (Metal, 1991) Human

    Symphony X-Sea of Lies (Metal, 1997) The Divine Wings of Tragedy
    Warrant-Cherry Pie (Rock, 1990) Cherry Pie

    No alternative and or pop? One questionable glam band. And I only know like half of the 90s here.

    2000s (15 songs)

    Alice Cooper-Detroit City (Rock, 2003) The Eyes of Alice Cooper
    Amon Amarth-The Pursuit of Vikings (Metal, 2004) Fate of Norns
    Avenged Sevenfold-Dancing Dead (Metal, 2008) Diamonds in the Rough
    Black Label Society-Suicide Messiah (Metal, 2005) Mafia
    Bullet for my Valentine-Scream Aim Fire (Metal, 2008) Scream Aim Fire

    Sonata Arctica-Wolf and Raven (Metal, 2001) Silence
    Spongebob Squarepants-Goofy Goober Rock (Rock, 2004) The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

    Only two songs I know here. Gooofy Goober Rock is a parody of I Wanna Rock, and it should be a "novelty" song. And there's not even alternative or pop.

    2010s (1 song)

    Breaking Benjamin-Blow Me Away (Nu-Metal, 2010) Single
    Soundgarden-Black Rain (Grunge, 2010) Telephantasm

    I only know Black Rain by GH6.

    Up until the 90s is where I love the set-list. There is not enough variety, which I should like. There is maybe too much metal and maybe classic rock. And last, what about R&B/Soul/Funk? Unless you're not a fan of that.

    It's actually true: bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, and Slipknot are NOT metal, they're metalcore, a big difference. If you told any metal purist that A7X was metal, they'd immediately flame you on your 'stupid taste in music'. I'm not that obsessed, but I know they're metalcore. I never heard of this Map of Metal, but the Metal Archives do not have Slipknot catalogued and those bands have been defined as metalcore in the past.

    But you don't understand: Metal "purists" are just close-minded fans of usually three or four types of metal. Metalcore is metal, and I don't really trust the Metal Archives. Everything but the Metal Archives list them as a genre of metal that fuses hardcore punk.

    EDIT: I did find Metalcore in the Metal Archives: http://www.metal-archives.com/search?searchString=metalcore&type=band_genre

    Metalcore is one of the most controversial genres in the history of rock music in terms of debate. Some argue it's a metal/punk fusion and others say a metal influenced punk genre. It really works for both sides of the coin.

    I should point out that Disturbed and Slipknot aren't metalcore. No longer is A7X either.

    @DanMan

    There were a few songs I was considering relabeling as Glam and I'll probably make the Spongebob song Novelty, lol. I'm not a huge fan of soul or funk, but I might be able to find some fitting songs.

    @LiveHomeVideo and FlyGuy

    I suppose it doesn't really matter whether metalcore and nu-metal is metal or not, I'm just relatively obsessed with metal and therefore don't consider Slipknot or Disturbed metal. But it's all down to perspective.

    I agree with the others. Remove some metal.

    Then we'll talk.

    Disturbed is more Alt.Metal and Slipknot is Nu-metal.

    All I know about Metalcore is that its the 3rd most hated genre in metal among "true metalheads''. 2nd is Nu-Metal and 1st is Deathcore. Also it has alot of breakdowns and melodic parts.

    Also I would try to avoid Metal Archives like the plague. The forums in particular because its packed with "true metalheads''.

    Setlist aint bad though. Its still better than RB3.

    Yes, I understand there's an abundance of metal, like I stated in the first post. In general, though, I'd love if people could comment on the specific song choice and whether there are songs you'd enjoy playing in addition to all the talk about lack of balance.

    @SneakyLooter

    Yeah, the Metal Archives have some really defensive metalheads. And I agree, RB3's setlist was a major disappointment, so I'm glad mine exceeds it, lol.

    Okay. I like the '50s. The '60s are good, but I'd rather have "Sunshine of Your Love" or "White Room" as the Cream choice. Good '70s choices, though I don't like Motörhead, Judas Priest or Rainbow. I'd rather have "Free Ride" by Edgar Winter Ride, "Jet Airliner" by Steve Miller Band and "Cat Scratch Fever" by Ted Nugent. From the '80s, I like Bruce Springsteen, Dire Straits, Guns 'n' Roses, Michael Jackson, Poison, Quiet Riot, Rush, Stray Cats, Twisted Sister and Van Halen. I'm sorry to say I don't like any of your choices from the '90s onward.

    And more Spongebob... just, no

    There's my opinion on your choices.

    No. It was the best setlist yet, in my opinion.
