    Yay, Rush!

    As for the hint explanations this week:

    Hint cycle one was pretty straightforward, these are all RBN artists of the month (in consecutive order, if I didn't mess that up) authored by The Authority. The artist of the month this month is Black Veil Brides, who are also authored by The Authority. Also, 'Rush, BUT not 2112 was a code (barely) hidden in the first clue.

    Hint cycle two consists of pairs of songs that refer to the three song titles of the Rush pack. BohemianMatt nailed this, even if he went a bit too far in guessing it were six songs. Let's see if you can figure out yourself which pairs fit which songs.

    Oh boy, that means 2112 is still coming.

    Awesome week, though

    That's not 2112. Excited for Rush. I hate that Volbeat song, and Black Veil Brides should stay in RBN.

    Just what I needed: A week full of songs I cannot afford.

    Would get Rush and Black Veil Brides, but I'll have to listen to the other one.

    Though the 80 Point price tag for two of the songs is amazing.

    So it really was "Rush, but not 2112." Anyhow, this is pretty cool! But I wonder what the deal is with 2112 now....the mystery will continue.

    Volbeat is the best surprise ever! Even if it is one of my least favorite songs. And only 80 points!

    And BVB and Rush! Amazing week.

    Hmm...wonder if something's wrong with the Permanent Waves masters, since "The Spirit Of Radio" is a live cut here and in GH5, not that there's anything wrong with live Rush recordings.

    Anyway, I can't wait to see what the other Rush and RB news is... :D

    Will be getting Rush... Bummed it's not 2112... but sounds like that still could be coming so I'm hopeful. And I didn't expect we'ld get pro-upgrade on Rush... so MAJOR excitment over having not one but two of them....

    The two singles I'm not familiar with so will have to listen first then we'll see.

    Really glad for Rush, but looks like it shows that Permanent Wave master tracks are unusable :(

    What year/concert is the live track from?
  • V8VANTAGEV8VANTAGE Road Warrior
    edited December 2011
    I'd much prefer the studio version of the Spirit of Radio. Why was the live version chosen, and if so is it the same one which is on Guitar Hero 5?

    Just this song for me this week.
  • fcmleftyfcmlefty Road Warrior
    edited December 2011
    I'll probably pick up Fly By Night, but that'll be it. Don't know why, but I've never really cared for Spirit of Radio. I'll also give the other 3 songs another listen, but odds are I'll pass.

    The upcoming Rush news should be interesting.

    We asked that question as well. The audio team is still looking it up.

    I have to admit that out of the three tracks in this pack, Caravan is probably my favorite, because it sounds similar to Snakes and Arrows and I really like that album.

    Glad I didn't impulse buy 2112 in preparation for its release. Don't worry Rush fans... I'll get it whenever we do get 2112. :)

    Gotta check out the tracks on RBA. Rush is one of those groups where I don't like most of the songs, but if I like it, I LOVE it. Pretty excited to check out more of their stuff.

    MOTHER OF GOD...
    I'm sorry, I got stuck with the first 251 pokemons.

    This week's pretty good anyway. Spirit of the Radio was cool on GH, and the other rush songs are gonna be a blast to play. I'm always in for more Rush.

    the Volbeat's song is like Nickelback but without Kroeger's good voice. It's a pass for me.

    BVB... oh, well... I didn't bought their songs already on RBN yet, I guess i'll just wait more for this one. I'm sure that this will be fun to play.

    I know that an X after a song means Pro Upgrade available. But what does an O mean?

    Any word on whether the live version of The Spirit of Radio will be from the new Time Machine 2011: Live In Cleveland CD/DVD? (The only other one I was thinking of is the same one that's in Guitar Hero 5)

    Stoked for the Rush pack nevertheless!!!

    The "O" means there's keys on that track.

    I love the Rush songs! Well I love 2 of them, but I'm sure I'll like the new one too. I enjoyed the new songs they played when I saw them in concert earlier this year. Not sure if "Caravan" was one of them. I don't know the other 2 songs, but will check them out after work.

    I'm still annoyed with no Black Keys, but can't complain when I get more Rush...
