    Yes it does. A lot.

    Emi had some great hair/80's bands that are cut off from RB.

    With the news that EMI is being sold off to different companies, there's hope that their catalog might end up at a RB friendly corporation. So it's not all doom and gloom I guess.

    Let's hope so. Because its terrible when we miss out on great bands, just because some corporate fat cats hate gamers.

    Oh, while I'm here: can anyone comment on whether communications between the RBN and Sub Pop Records are permanently finished, or is there ever a chance of a reconciliation?

    I'm not debating that there may be a problem between EMI and music games, but I was just looking through their list of artists and we have quite a few of them.

    How is it then that we can get some, but not others?

    Not every band on that list is signed to EMI. Some labels have publishing deals through EMI, and it seems like a lot of artists on that list are signed to other labels that have, or had, those deals.

    Actually there's some reasons (that we're not going to get into publicly), but just know that there's no chance of ever seeing Fly to the Angels (or any of those other EMI bands that were up then disappeared) either on RBN or as official DLC.

    How can you know that there's "no chance of ever" seeing those bands as official DLC?

    How about "Preachin" by "The Answer"?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GbQmjr9lC80

    They are pretty similar to Free Spirit in the sense that they take the older rock sound and modernize it. I just heard it on Planet Rock UK radio station a few minutes ago and now I want it on Rock Band.

    They are on a label called "Albert Records" which I don't think is a huge label like Universal or Sony Music.

    Is there any chance that this could be potential RBN material?

    I think he means those specific songs since we've seen Blondie re-appear afterwards. Licensing is complicated, so I'm guessing here.

    Yes please! In my top 3 artists Guitar Hero has, that Rock Band doesn't. I'd kill for "Nowhere Freeway" (since I assume new material would come first).

    So no hope for a $2 copy of "Atomic" with the bass solo intact? That sucks.

    I've just listened to that song on Youtube. I'm stunned, thats now 3 songs i've heard from them I really like. One of there songs I'm sure I came across on the ATV/Motocross game, "Pure".

    I'm a huge fan of Rishloo and love that you guys were able to bring them into the game, so I thought I'd throw some requests/suggestions your way:

    I am requesting the band Sloppy Seconds. They are a punk band from the 80s that had just starting touring again a few years ago. I saw them live and they are awesome. My friends bought me their album "Destroyed" and I couldn't stop playing it. Here is a sample off of Destroyed: Black Roses

    By the way, is there any chance of getting any Dethklok in RBN? I know that they had a few songs in Guitar Hero.

    Also, what about Green Jello/Green Jelly? If you don't know who they are, they had a hit in the 90's called "Three Little Pigs", but the entire album called the Cereal Killer Soundtrack was pretty awesome.
    Here is the Three Little Pigs video: Three Little Pigs

    That's...a weird choice. Not that it's chiptune, because that's a staple of RBN2, but...the side project to an internet reviewer?
    Not that weird really. RBN has the intro to Psyguys podcast on it.
    Although, it is still an odd band request. :)

    Is GamerBeats still around? If not can someone contact Bloom? I love the song we have and would really love more.

    Weird about EMI, didn't we just get Coldplay? Poison is also an EMI band IIRC... Is it a recent falling out? Was really hoping for Slaughter and Great White :(

    Anything come of me sending Junkyard your way? :)

    As for requests..

    Dangerous Toys
    Warrant
    Ratt
    Slade
    Quiet Riot
    Robert Palmer

    The post specified artists that almost came through RBN.

    Those last few words would seem to indicate something more serious. The other posts also indicated the problems were with EMI as a whole. Not just Slaughter...

    Here are some independent artists (as in they retain the rights to their own music for the most part) I'd love to see in the game:

    Stemage - aka Grant Henry, guitarist and arranger for Metroid cover band Metroid Metal. He has composed the music for XBLIG release Alpha Squad, released an original album called Zero Over Zero, and has written other original stuff previously.

    chunkstyle - Bandmate with Stemage, has an original album of material released under the name Yes, Mayhem.

    Jake Kaufman - aka virt, sound designer and composer for game developer WayForward. He's written (and still retains the rights to) the music for Shantae: Risky's Revenge, Mighty Milky Way/Flip Champs/Switch Force, Bloodrayne: Betrayal, and has written dozens of other original songs, some of which can be heard on his album Kwakfest.

    I Fight Dragons - A pop-rock band with chiptune elements, similar to Anamanaguchi.

    Frank Klepacki - Composer for the Command & Conquer game series, he has also independently released six albums of original music which would make keyboardists and guitarists very happy.

    Teleidofusion - A mindblowing meld of 8-bit chiptune and guitar that seriously NEEDS to be in Rock Band.

    Danimal Cannon - Guitarist for game cover band ARMCANNON, Dan has really come into his own as of late with writing original material. I'd love to have some of the songs from his album Roots in the game, especially Danimal Across America.

    EDIT: Also, I'd personally love to see some Homestar Runner songs like Trogdor and Because it's Midnite return from Guitar Hero, if only to have them with full band parts.

    6. Sugarcult
    7. Electric Touch
    8. Eve 6 ( new cd coming out in april is on fearless records)

    I know that TAG doesn't work with many instrumental artists (if any now that I think about it) but one artist who I'm pretty sure is not signed to a major label and who might be interested in the rbn is a guy named Neil Zaza. This guy's been around for a while and has made some pretty cool stuff. I think that any one if not all of his material would be great for RockBand especially the RBN, one song in particular called "I'm Alright" (I've put a link in my post for the song).

    By the way, this is actually my first post on the forums, so if I have neglected any forum etiquette in any way, I do apologize, just bear with me because I am new at this.

    victory is partnered with rhythm authors, if you want taking back sunday you'd best be talking to them.

    the other two... well, I'll see what I can do

    A few more from me:

    Broken Social Scene
    Peter Murphy (new song "I Spit Roses" would be amazing)
    Gogol Bordello
    Danko Jones
    Peachcake
    Ladytron
    ...And You Will Know Us by the Trail of Dead

    Okay, I'll restrain myself, for now.

    I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to request, but I'd love more Anarchy Club :-) (Including the songs that were going to be released by Kario Charts before they stopped)

    As for bands not yet released on the RBN, I don't suppose Prong, Flaw or Spineshank would be worth a go? I'm sure they would have been contacted in the past at some stage by fans but maybe being approached by an actual authoring group would be more successful? (Although I think at some stage Prong was coming to the RBN but so far I can't find anything released?)

    Good call on Tonight Alive, I dig them. Picture Me Broken is definitely down for more songs too, at least I know Brooklyn is. Since their new label released those Black Veil Brides songs I'd assume that it's just a matter of contacting them.

    As far as some other bands...

    Aria (Canadian band, similar to VersaEmerge): "Escaping The Transience" // "Your Underling" // "E.T." (a cover we unfortunately couldn't use)

    The Missing (great local band, I know they are similar to someone I've heard but I'm not placing it): "Black As A Crow" // "Spiderbites"

    Ready,Set,Fall! - "Buried Alive"

    Fit For Rivals - "Damage"

    Maybe Halford/Fight stuff? It seems its record label is Metal God Records so it only selss Rob Halfords stuff (non Judas Priest).
    Maybe he would be interested in RBN as we have many Judas Priests songs in game already...?

    I know offspring isnt possible, we've already fished for the used's new album, but they decided to use a bigger label whose not interested to release it, we've gone after eyes set to kill's label multiple times only to be continuously ignored, the others I didnt mention because they're still in the 'have to send them an email' phase, whereas we're working with fearless records already.
