    "The Day I Tried To Live" is already in rockband via dlc. Other than that, great setlist.

    I actually quite like it, to be honest. One of the few setlists that remains consistently strong through the decades and it seems to have a pretty good balance of metal, unlike most. I would buy it.

    One thing, Symphony of Destruction was in the 90s, not 80s.

    Fixing the misplaced decades, adding a new song, and with the announcement of the August 30th DLC, replacing the RHCP pick. Also replacing the Soundgarden pick.

    Really? Huh. For some reason, I thought it was written about Bush Jr.'s presidency. Fixing that.

    Edit: Also, added a new song in the 00's section.

    This setlist is pretty good. A lot of good choices here. And it's well balanced, too. There's not that much challenge here that I know of, though, and I'm such a glutton for breaking my fingers on dem devil-heads.

    Oh well, the setlist is pretty damn good.

    9/10

    I don't really listen to the harder shredding stuff, and I didn't feel comfortably putting songs based on reputation rather than my own personal feelings. Still, "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida" and "Octivarium" should satisfy, by sheer length if nothing else (respectively, 17 minutes and 24 minutes long).

    OK, I haven't heard In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, so I didn't know if it'd be cchallenging. And also, what I said about the "lack of challenge" is only a very, very minor setback, and looking over the setlist again, I'm starting to see that I was wrong, anyways.

    LOVE One Winged Angel. I own the original MIDI tune on my iTunes, it was that awesome!

    BTW, are you thinking the "Advent Children" version, the Longer version of that, or a completely different version I can't think of ATM?

    It was originally called "In the Garden of Eden", but it was changed due to many people's misunderstanding of the lyrics.

    I hope that info MIGHT help you remember if you've heard it.

    Your 90s and 2000s are kinda bad. Plus I didn't see any progressive rock or indie outside of Arcade Fire.

    Deep Purple, Pink Floyd, and Rush aren't prog rock? And Stabbing Westward isn't indie?

    Advent Children version, preceded by the J-E-N-O-V-A piano line if possible.

    Deep Purple and Pink Floyd aren't really prog, Rush are but you didn't choose a prog song for them.

    Nope. Unless you're confusing industrial with indie.

    DP is according to Rock Band, and most people will say that Pink Floyd is one of the first prog bands, if not the first. However, fair enough on the indie side. I usually don't think in terms of genre. Again, if I haven't heard it, I won't put it on the list, and I don't listen to indie all that much.

    On a different note, what is your problem in general with the 90's and 00's? Like I said, I'm open to constructive criticism.

    They called Stone Sour Metal. They're not always accurate labeling genres.

    Even if Pink Floyd were a progressive band, there were numerous bands before them that played progressive music. Pink Floyd doesn't have the same artistic merit as some of the many progressive rock bands out there, plus they're not very keen with changing time signatures in the middle of songs. They're more influenced to the genre if anything.

    It's way too heavy with popular rock and nu-metal that shows little contrast in terms of originality.
  • thebobmasterthebobmaster Unsigned
    edited August 2011
    Fair enough. I'll try to get some heavier metal and original stuff on there.

    Got some more songs under the 90's and 00's, as well as one 60's song.

    I don't know how late I am responding to this, but EVERYONE has a problem with everyone else's 00s section on someone else's setlist. I don't really know why. I think it's because music became much more personalized in the 2000s. I don't have a problem with yours though.

    As for the list, I liked it! It could use some formatting and links, but it's a good list as far as the song choices go. I believe you have some 80s songs listed in the 70s though (I remember seeing "Video Killed the Radio Star" there).

    And the list gained like 100% approval when I saw "The Edge of Glory".

    "Video Killed the Radio Star" could work either way. It was released as a single in '79 and in the album The Age of Plastic in '80.

    By the way, asking a music nerd called "my brother in law" it seems I was in error when I said Pink Floyd and Deep Purple were prog, so I admit my error. As well, he agreed that "Roll the Bones" is not a prog rock song.

    As for the idea of links, that's a really good idea. It will take a while, but I'm on it.

    And I put "Video Killed the Radio Star" under 70's because of the single being released in the 70's. I go by initial release date, not initial album release. Also known as "what Wikipedia says".

    Very nice setlist. I wouldn't mind having this as RB4. One thing though is the song by The Decemberists. The song that I would rather have is Mariner's Revenge Song. It's long, but there is a couple of reasons. 1) It has accordian which hasnt been used much/at all. 2) It has good harmonies section.

    I'm not a huge Decemberist fan *dodges knives and flames* so I'll check that song out. If I like it more, I'll put it in place.

    OK, my list has officially hit 150 songs. That's enough, I think. I'll be replacing songs as they get added via DLC, but I won't add any more.
