I am a metal freak you know Metallca, Megadeth. I also am a child of the 80's-90's so do any of you have any suggestions for me to look for on RBN? I'm not looking for uber fast songs, ok maybe a few, but I am looking for something that has a good beat, is fun to play, and over all just a fun song.

    If you're looking for 80's and 90's rock on the Rock Band Network, you're better off searching the "Official" Harmonix DLC instead. Unless you don't know the difference between RBN songs and regular DLC. In that case, lemme explain:

    The Rock Band Network is a program created by Harmonix that allows actual musicians (and some kids with access to computers) to upload their own music onto the platform. They release them onto Xbox first, then if the songs sell well enough, can be ported onto the PS3. Note, though, that the Rock Band Network is no longer supported on Wii, if that's your console of choice.

    Now as for suggestions, while most songs on the Rock Band Network are from relatively unknown artists, that doesn't mean they don't kick ass (in fact, a lot of them in my opinion kick a lot more ass than most popular artists). Some names you may know are on this list, as well as some obscure metal (not metalcore or death metal here. If you want some of that, I can make a great big ole list for you) that I've picked up that I find fun, if a bit challenging.

    John Parr - St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)
    Stan Bush - The Touch
    Third Eye Blind - Never Let You Go '09
    Third Eye Blind - Semi-Charmed Life '09
    Lich King - Act of War
    Holy Grail - Fight to Kill
    Majestic - Voodoo Treasure
    Nevermore - The Obsidian Conspiracy
    Prototype - The Way It Ends

    The Halcyon Way and Nevermore songs might be to your liking. Maybe Firewind, too.

    Also Over the Top by White Wizzard and Omega Wave by Forbidden. As far as 80'sish metal goes.

    If you like Thrash go check out the Evile songs, though they might be a tad to hard for the most part (same goes for "Betrayed" by Musica Diablo, awesome Thrash song but very hard). Can't come up with any suggestion for easy RBN Thrash Metal songs at the top of my head lol, sorry

    "Henchmen Ride" by Testament. Should've thought of that sooner. I've only played it on vocals but I'm sure it's very difficult on the other parts.

    Definitely look into Halcyon Way. It has a very 80's-metal vibe, like Ozzy, Dio, etc. Riffy and soloy and melodic without being too difficult. Lots of fun, and lots of songs to pick from.

    I get more of an Iron Maiden vibe than a Dio or Ozzy vibe from them myself.

    As you can tell I am new here to RB. I have many years of experience in the rhythm genre on expert, you know that other rythm game and I am able to hold my own. With that beeing said I'm not necessarily looking for easy songs by any means as I really do like a challenge. Though easy songs are fun every once in a while so I dont strum my arm off!! I have taken note of all your suggestions and I will definatly be checking them out. Keep them coming guys. I would like to build an expansive library of songs.

    Also most of the Devin Townsend aren't super ridiculous so those could be up your alley, also the 2 Five Finger Death Punch tracks we have are also really fun (we really need more of them).

    This man speaks the truth!

    Also Cynic seems to be pretty cool if you can handle some overly high falsetto vocals, though might be a bit to "young people music" sounding in the production. Kind of a wild card based on general opinion on that one.

    Thank you I already spent my points but I will keep all of these suggestions on my list. Suprisingly once I sat down and started to listen to the previews I was blown away by some of this RBN stuff. I thought for sure it would all be Screamin punch you in the face metal but there were a few that just blew me away with out being overly fast and I could actually understand what they were saying. You guys freakin rock!!!! :-)

    Unlike TAG, we at Chart Toppers actually don't have much metal at all.

    What we do have, however, is Winter Crescent. They draw influence from bands like Death, Nevermore and Fates Warning so if you like those you may like these guys.

    Whatever songs off that album aren't in the game yet, will be. We should also be doing the second album whenever it's done, and I'm told it will be much more intense than anything off of Battle of Egos.

    If you like it, tell the band. They love hearing from their fans.

    I also suggest looking up Alt Strum Productions releases as well. They have a massive amount of kick ass metal in the game as well.

    Yes, if you want metal, we may just have what you're looking for. We've brought songs from the likes of Mastodon, Deadlock, Arkaea, Alestorm, Charlie Drown, Sonata Arctica, Thunder and Lightning, and so much more. Way too much more to list here!

    You can check out and sort the songs we have here at our website (click "Genre" above the genre column to sort them all alphabetically by genre), or search Alt-StrumProductions at rbnreleases.com to see a full list of what we've brought.

    Iunno what you're into, but The Agonist - Thank You, Pain is probably one of my favorite metal songs to play.

    My wife and I like the All That Remains songs on RBN, but they're more modern-sounding. Mystakin and Bluefusion also have some darn good instrumentals. Though they're alternative, maybe you should also check out Drugstore Fanatics, who are very quality.

    Ahhhh, well he's been asking for 80s metal, and I wasn't sure if there's any of that in the RBN.

    If you like prog metal, Andromeda is a pretty good bet. If you play guitar it's melodic, if you play drums it's technical, and if you play keys well, good luck.

    I'm not a big metal fan, and this song is pretty cool.

    Also, try anything by Alestorm. Pirate Metal!

    I agree on Alestorm, they are unique compared to the other metal on the RBN.
    They also kind of throw some older metal sounds into their songs in parts.
