I had gotten started working on this in a reply to a Blitz thread, and was told it was better suited for it's own thread, so here it goes.

I'm not going to continually update this, as the list is constantly fluctuating and completely guesswork. I have one floating wishlist point that I add and delete to find the ranking of random bands that I type in. I'm not done yet, will try to finish soon. This should give a rough summary of the requests now that we can't see a leaderboard for them any more.

    Edit: I'm also an idiot, how the heck do you add bands again if you have points? For the life of me I can't remember and I can't find anything that tells me how. Is it on Facebook, or does it come from the rb.com site?

    On Facebook in the Rock Band World App. Search for the artist in the songs tab.

    Ohh, that's how you do it. Thanks! I wish they just had an "Add Artist" button under the actual Wishlist area. :p

    Also:

    63 Halestorm

    And I don't know how much it matters, since it's fairly fluid, but I have Taylor Swift at 127.

    Not only is the list constantly changing, there are also ties. I try and put things as close to relative order as possible, even if the number doesn't exactly match in the end.

    It's a shame, but wasn't this information freely available before the app update?

    Anyways, I have The Offspring at 211 and Cage The Elephant at 107.

    Some of it may be because a lot of RB players don't play rival music games (or as often). Muse has a few tracks available in the GH series and yet we only have one. On the flip side that is more than a lot of artists end up getting a slice of the action.

    IMO, my likeness for this band has gone right down now. Their new album is the worst album they've ever made. I still like the classic Muse tracks from Origin of Symmetry and BH&R though.

    I can only add A Perfect Circle to #54. The others all have been already listed.

    So sad to see Deep Purple over #300. :(

    Looks like the list has already shifted, as it shows Static-X at 147 above, but I see The Tragically Hip at 147 today.

    The Tragically Hip - 147
    Wilco - 222
    Porcupine Tree - 78 (Oops, someone else already claimed it above)


    And since I posted this ten minutes ago it's shifted again. Right now Tragically Hip is 148, Static-X is 145.

    How often do they recompute these things?

    People want what they cannot have.

    There's no way to keep this list totally up to date (the rankings seems to adjust dynamically as people re-allocate their points) but getting a rough-cut of how the top 250 looks right now would be pretty damn cool. Once you've got 250 different bands listed in (approximately) the right order, I would suggest updating it no more than once a month. You'll go crazy if you try and keep track of every time artist #170 moves up to #165.

    I suggested this mostly as a joke, but not totally as a joke, and it brings a tear to my eye every time I see people even more obsessive than I am jump into this kind of project.

    121 is Andrew W.K.? On mine anyway, so maybe the adding subtracting points to figure out bands might not be a good idea.

    32 - Arctic Monkeys

    139 - Streetlight Manifesto

    230 - Toadies

    250 - Misfits

    (Best I got)
