    No single year stands out immediately. I probably got 2 or 3 songs from each year and that's it.

    Damn. They were all great. But I think I'll go with 2010.

    I'll go with 2008 again for the same reasons (The Colour and the Shape as well as The Killers 01) but 2012 would probably be 2nd because of "Cry Thunder".

    • 2007 – 18/18 - Just great! all songs are good, even those covers. Lost the first position because 2010 have more than 18 good songs and aren't covers. ;)

    • 2012 – 10/53 - Green Day, The Band, Allman Brothers Band, Modern English, NIN, Kenny Loggins

    • 2008 – 27/54 – Dead Kennedys, Mission of Burma, Foo Fighters, The Killers (20 songs are those free)

    2008 - 1 (+20)
    2009 - 11
    2010 - 31 (and 1 I keep pondering)
    2011 - 8
    2012 - 8 + GD (Export)

    2010 wins on quality and quantity, as GD was an export, and I wouldn't have gotten them all otherwise.

    No obvious choice here. I picked 2009, mostly due to the AFI pack. The Tom Petty live packs are pretty good, too...I wish I hadn't taken so long to get them.

    07 was amazing, how is it not winning? The Police, Metallica, CCR, The Knack, T. Rex, Bowie... incredible picks, I would've bought some Qotsa too but I didn't care for those songs.

    09 actually is probably second. The Bleach pack is among my favorite songs to play in the game, The White Stripes, The Damned, Tom Petty and Go-Go's were all pretty damn awesome too.

    Then 08 for sure, I really dug that Foo Fighters album, and the Dead Kennedy's and Mission of Burma packs were the best surprises Harmonix ever gave us. Outside of that, I guess Database Corrupted was a cool song, but I never cared for the rest of the 20 free, or the rest of the month for that matter.

    2010 comes next pretty closely after 08, the Rush single was great, loved the New Order and Talking Heads, Procol Harum was real nice, Imagine was a good album, and I really dug the Skynyrd pack as well as Hold On Loosely.

    2011 comes crawling up after... I like Mama Tried and Ring of Fire out of the country pack, although I much prefer the Johnny Cash songs from that January, the Stevie Wonder pack was a fun surprise, and I even thought We Built This City was pretty cool.

    And in last, just like every other month is 2012. Still some great songs, but really only from the singles week, The Weight, Jessica, I Melt With You, and Closer were all really fun and among my favorite songs of that year.

    "Like A Fool" by Shaimus and "Sons and Daughters" by the 88 were pretty fun to play. The rest... Not so much. Maybe " The Feeling" as well. It's been A while since I played that one.

    probably 'cos half those artists you mentioned were released only or mostly in cover versions.

    Because a lot of those are covers, some of which we've gotten the original versions of since. Beyond that, those were hardly the strongest Police or Metallica tracks.

    At least, that's my guess.

    I got a lot of play out of about half of them. Some were good when you were learning things (Ashes to Fire or The Feeling for example when learning HOPOs), others were ok songs, and there's a few that are just fun tracks to play ("I'm Gone, I'm Going" on guitar).

    Hey, they were free, I won't complain too much.

    From worst to best...

    2010 was absolutely awful. Only 1 week with even remotely tolerable songs, and even then nothing that I wanted to buy.

    2011 wasn't much better, but I've at least bought 1 song, and might buy a couple more.

    2012 had its ups (Green Day, Closer, Cry Thunder to an extent) and downs (pretty much everything else). Decent month overall though.

    2008 had Monkey Wrench, The Killers and a whole bunch of free stuff.

    2009 was amazing for the first 3 weeks. Foo Fighters, Nirvana, The White Stripes, Kasabian, AFI and Them Crooked Vultures all bringing very solid contributions to the table.

    But the winner is 2007 for having such outstanding launch day DLC. Sure, there's a bunch of covers of songs I don't care for, but the packs from The Police, QotSA and Metallica are fantastic, and Joker and the Thief is pretty good too. '09 would've had more songs I bought, but '07 had a much better strike rate.

    Hmm, do I go for the year that brought us Rush, Skynyrd, Bee Gees and Bon Jovi...or the year that brought us Ghost of Perdition?

    No, if you give me a choice between Ghost of Perdition and every other song that was ever in Rock Band, it isn't a choice at all.

    There is no other set of months in which one song which nullify all else. That's how much I love this song.
