Which Rock Band spinoff is the best?

My personal favorite spinoff would have to be Rock Band Unplugged. I just have too many good memories of playing that game at my loneliest times while on the go.

    Beatles, and it's not even close. You could chop the Beatles game into three separate games each with one third of the setlist and the resulting three games would each still win my vote over anything else on this list.

    Yep, going for Blitz as well considering it is the one I find myself keep playing and coming back to even after importing the tracks to RB3. Beatles and Lego comes close behind (surprise, surprise)

    The Beatles by far. The whole game is a love letter to the band. It really immerses you in their whole career.

    I don't know if the last one is a real thing or not but I voted for it.

    I would have to say Blitz though.

    No question - The Beatles Rock Band

    Lego by faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar.
    Has the best setlist of any Rock Band game outside of 3, has one of the most amazing art styles in any game ever, and has setpieces that made me drop the controller down and say wow, which no other game this console generation has ever done.

    Green Day. Not because it's the best setlist or anything, but because damn, full motion capture. It's really nice.

    Let's face it. If it had paramore on the setlist, it would have been the perfect game for you, wouldn't it?

    I chose Blitz for the RB tunes... not the arcade game.

    I am kinda shocked Lego has so many votes.

    Yeah, that's about how I feel. I'd introduce The Beatles: Rock Band into any videogames-as-art conversation.

    They even capture the facial expressions so well.

    I'd have to say Beatles or Blitz because you can't export Beatles and Blitz is a different type of game.

    I was going to vote Beatles, because at a time, they were my favorite band, and I got a lot of play out of that game.

    But in the end I had to vote Blitz, because it's completely different from anything we've seen, anyone can play without having to search high and low for instrument peripherals, it gives your entire RB library a second life, and it's crazy addictive.

    It had a deep lacking of Paramore, yes.

    Lego for me.
    I consider the setlist the best of any music game - every RB game setlist has at least 2 or 3 songs I 1 lighter and hide (even the Beatles have 1 even if it exported) . Lego does not have any.

    The career mode in it is the best of all the games. The Challenges with songs were really cool. It was my number one.

    Beatles would have won expect it didn't export.

    It wasn't that good but playing as Legos is more entertaining. I loved the lego versions of the RB premades, especially Lego Duke.

    It's real. I forget what it was called, but it was pretty crappy. There were the five different instrument icons as gems and you had to swap 2 gems to match 3, and rows would be added from the bottom as samples of RBN songs were played in the background. It was mentioned on PlasticAxe once and I never heard anything about it from either RockBandAide or Rock Band themselves. It's kind of peculiar.

    Oh, also you could only swap horizontally, not vertically

    Sounds a bit like that tetris-esque minigame on Rocksmith.

    Eh, sort of. There aren't any falling blocks, and you match in rows and columns intead of clusters. Let me try to find it...

    ...So yeah, it's been taken down. It was called Rock Band Icons. The game is gone, but there's still this video

    I loved Lego gameplay! I loved the Rock Power Challenges! Lego minifigs are very cute imo! The setlist (FOR ME) was pretty good! The only problems were the lack of online gameplay and the Family Friendly songs being the only ones avaiable to play! I'm still hoping we get a Lego Rock Band 2 or something alike in the future! :D

    LRB for the wii ain't a blast as much as I thought, but with Green Day I could spend the whole day playing and it still fun to this day.

    TBRB wins, hands down.

    Blitz almost wins, but it can't to TBRB.

    Lego was fun (on a non-wii), but the limit on songs was annoying.

    Green Day was pretty well done, but it exported, and was quickly made obsolete by RB3.

    Green Day for the songs(though The Beatles are a very close second), The Beatles for the visuals, Lego for the customization, and Blitz for bringing in new gameplay(on the consoles; Lego is a close second for this).

    Being that I don't switch discs often, I went with Green Day(since it exported) with my second choice being Blitz.

    Now if we are talking just the game in isolation, it'd be Blitz then Lego since The Beatles and Green Day didn't do much different.
