edited December 2012 in Your Ultimate Setlist
I've been playing the hell out of Rock Band Blitz lately, and it inspired me to make a NEW Ultimate Setlist. Please, contain yourselves.

I've avoided including tracks from my previous setlists and tried to keep the artist choices realistic. I also tried to do the setlist with Blitz in mind, as opposed to a typical Rock Band game (lots of modern stuff, lots of pop). Anyway, let me know what you think. I didn't bother pointing out harmonies, since they're not used in Blitz anyway.

O = Keyboard track

-David Bowie – Starman (1972, Glam) O

    Man, 200+ views, only 6 votes, and no replies? The Ultimate Setlist game ain't what it used to be...

    Fine, here's a comment.

    There's a few songs in there I like, but for the most part it's a little too pop oriented for my taste for a setlist this short, especially the 2010's. I'd still buy it for Shadows Fall, Lostprophets, Andrew W.K. and Talking Heads.

    Would buy only for camisado, the rest would be a bonus.
    Seriously, how do we not already have Panic!'s entire discography? Well, the answer is obvious but even so, we need more by them, and only keeping blitz in mind Camisado was certainly the best choice, good job

    Setlist as a while is overall what I'd like in a game: not necessarily songs I'd buy but certainly songs I'd play.

    That's what makes it a Blitz setlist. RBB was full of modern, pop hits (most of which don't even play that well in RB3, in my opinion). So saying it's too pop or to modern is like complaining Lego Rock Band was too family friendly. That's sort of why I did it. Personally, I wouldn't want Bruno Mars or Katy Perry in a RB game, but in Blitz I'm sort of okay with it.

    Honestly, I HATED PATD when that album came out (I was in high school, so I hated everything), but that album has held up surprisingly well overtime. I was going to go with one of the releases off the album, but mainly picked Camisado out of difficulty on keys and vocals. Plus there's that fun little drum solo in there.

    I understand. I'm just saying "in my opinion" it's too pop heavy. I didn't like the Blitz setlist much, either, though I still ended up buying it for maybe five songs. I'd buy this setlist, too.

    But then again, everyone I talk to thinks I'm a hipster, so maybe I'm just "that douchbag."
