Pretty much just post what band local to your area you'd like to see on Rockband DLC. The catch, they have to be unsigned (and/or generally unknown).

Provide a link to some of their music so others can listen and give feedback.


Here's mine:

Band: Prylosis
Song: Torn in Two

This is a Sacramento, CA band that is currently in the running to open up for larger named bands in the upcoming Aftershock Music Festival. If you like them, please rate their video in the link a 5 so they can get in.

    While I don't know any of the local bands in my town, I am working with two bands from the same state as me (Ohio): Last N Line and Latenight Symphony. Well, Latenight Symphony is technically one guy now. Used to be two.

    Also, there's a thread in the Rock Band Network forums for general requests. You can request your local bands there if you wish.

    My friend's band Failure by Design. They're recording a demo soon and I'll probably talk to him about RBN stuff.

    Also Lights Resolve is from around my area and you probably know them as that band with the free song on Rock Band.

    I know of no local bands. So I would like them in Rock Band.

    Started as a potentially fun wishlist, but unsurprisingly, once you get into the thread, OP is just fishing for votes.

    I didn't click on the link, so I didn't notice.

    I actually sent an email to Acorn Project about the RBN, making sure to push Pro Keys, but they never replied.

    The first song on their player on that link, I've heard them play it live. It's 8 minutes here, from their album, but it extended to close to half an hour with the (possibly improvised) jams they stuck into it. It was really awesome stuff. Slightly faster tempo live, too.

    How do you read that from the 4 posts above yours? Isn't that essentially what all wishlist posts are?

    Anyway mine is Enrage , Staten Island's longest running hardcore band. They've been doing their thing for close to 20 years.

    How did I read what? How did I read the part of OP's post that said, "Vote for this band, guys!" By READING. Try doing it to entire posts. Third time I've had to inform you reading helps on a forum.

    I noticed it first. Didn't click on the link because that's all these threads ever are. Promotion.

    But I guess it's cool if we're all promoting local bands.

    But not cool if "RATE 5 PL0X".

    So every link to every video in any thread is just fishing for votes? Or is that all you saw? Did you miss all the rest of the post where he said "Hey, what are your suggestions?" It's not a "what do you think of my band" thread, and not everything is a conspiracy.

    If he didnt want us to vote for his band he would have just posted the youtube link.

    That's just a general statement about everything anyone's ever posted on the Internet: "hey, if you like it, click the cheeseburger or whatever" Sometimes it's implied without being expressly stated but it's always there. Doesn't mean every post is a fishing expedition. Why even argue this without contributing anyway?

    DI I'm surprised at you, as someone who is (in) a local unsigned band. I'd like to hear more about Yogurt with Sprinkles.

    You havent been around long enough. These threads happen all the time. They try to disguise it in anyway they can, but they never do a good enough job.

    You don't have to vote for who's ever (or is it whom's?... I never understood that rule) band is in the link just to listen to it. No harm no foul. I certainly wouldn't vote for it, cause its not my kinda music, but I don't think it was an issue to have posted it. The thread idea still has merit.

    Whose ever, or if you're feeling formal/stuffy, whose soever.

    Thanks... I didn't in school and still don't get that rule. :)

    Ehh, this is one that's evolving. Strictly speaking, only "whose soever" ought to be considered correct, but "whose ever" is certainly showing up in speech, as is "whoever's" (I don't care for that last one). I doubt you got particularly good instruction on it.

    I actually had three purposes for the post. Yes, I do want them to get more votes, so I mentioned it. As most unsigned bands would like their music to be heard by many people not necessarily in their immediate sphere of influence to get the word out about them, these guys would too. As a friend of there's I am trying to help them with that.

    The second would be that I would indeed like to see their music get in the game's downloadable content, so if along the way I can get them some attention on this forum and get some useful info as to how to get them in the DLC then I will attempt to do so.

    The third is that I enjoy hearing smaller named bands, and branching out from the mainstream music that I am getting relatively tired of, as Im sure some of you are aswell. So by others sharing their music on this thread we all get a chance to hear some good music from smaller bands without trolling around searching everywhere for actual quality.

    It takes little effort to dismiss someone, but significant effort to hear them out and give them a chance.

    Well as far as the DLC part goes, I'd definitely recommend checking out the Rock Band Network.

    It basically lets bands put their own music into the game, or, alternatively, they can have an authoring group (you can find several of them on the forums here) put it into the game for them in exchange for a (hopefully) small percentage of the proceeds.
