SoConfined's Lego Rock Band 2 setlist

SoConfinedSoConfined Opening Act
edited December 2012 in Your Ultimate Setlist
Hey folks. Been working on a wee tiering project lately, since I figured it'd be a good warm-up for getting back into updating my old tiering thread. (Yes, I plan to update it soon.)

I created a setlist for a Lego Rock Band 2, if ever one was made. It contains 63 songs (less than RB3 due to being a gimmick, and also perhaps a smoother engine), 54 of which have keys-support. While the setlist is still dominated by Pop/Rock songs, like Lego Rock Band, I decided to expand the table of genres included in the setlist, in hopes of embracing Pro mode better. The goal was to pick radio-friendly songs that would appeal to a younger audience, while still having the potential to teach them many methods, chords, scales, and tricks on all the instruments. I also adhered to these rules while making the setlist:

- No cursing or vulgarities in the lyrics, songs name, band name, album name, or album art.
- No references to drugs, and no overly violent or sexual themes in the lyrics. Lyrics expressing anger or feelings of love are fine.
- Keep songs at 5 minutes or under. (Only a few songs barely break the 5-minute barrier.)
- Avoid including songs previously tiered in my tiering thread.

I think that's it. Bear in mind that these songs are tiered relative to each other, and are not predictions of what the songs would be tiered as DLC. There are 63 songs and 7 tiers, meaning 9 songs per. (Keys has 8 songs per tier, except for the first tier which contains 6 songs.) Everything had to fit, so some things might seem off. blablabla, anyway, here's the setlist!

Orange bricks are devil-head-equivalent, if you didn't figure it out.

I tried to pick realistic artists/newcomers (hence no Stones, Dylan, ELO, Springsteen, Chuck Berry, etc.), although Muse was added just for shiggles.
