    Definitely a Must, and not the first thread about it at all!

    I say it again, my most wanted song by them is a b-side called Rhododendron:

    i've been requesting Bloc Party since the original song requests page was up b4 there was even a real website. Bloc Party is so perfect for RB, it would really be ashame if it never saw the light of day for dlc. they've had "Helicopter" in GH3 and "Banquet" in Singstar, so they're clearly open to licensing their songs into video games. along with the excellent songs already linked, here are some more great Bloc Party songs for RB:

    Like Eating Glass (this is a user video)

    I like bloc party but those songs would be terrible for roc band, this modern love, hunting for wirches, song for clay, skeleton, positive tension, kreuzeberg and so here we are would all work alot better than the ones you mentioned

    He actually mentioned "This Modern Love". But I agree that "The Prayer" and "Banquet" would'nt be the best choices. I hope it's not going to be Helicopter either, since I am bored if that song.

    Every other song would be awesome though.

    Meh. Not a huge fan. Of course, the only song I know is "Helicopter." Enlighten me if they have different material.

    The only song of theirs that I really like is the one song that probably would work the least on RB. Flux. It's more house music than rock, so wouldn't be a great selection.

    I would really like to see Bloc Party in RB, preferably stuff off of their first album. Please not "The Prayer". Top three would be:

    Like Eating Glass
    Positive Tension
    Pioneers

    Did I already mention "Rhododendron"? I think I did. :D

    Best Bloc Party song ever.

    great, thanks for u're opinion! my opinion is that u're wrong and Bloc Party is awesome. for all the others that share my opinion, i REALLY hope we see at least ONE Bloc Party song some time this year. alot of good songs have been mentioned already in this thread, so lets keep it alive and kickin for some more votes!

    Yeah, there is a new Guitar Hero 3 commercial on TV in Germany with one song in the background, yes, Helicopter.
    Everytime I see this commercial it just makes me want Bloc Party even more in Rockband. Although I hope it's not going to be Helicopter. Argh, Rhododendron would be so sweet. But I take everything.
  • FatWilmaFatWilma Road Warrior
    edited March 2008
    yeah, i wouldn't get u're hopes up for Rhododendron, being that its a B-side (at least in the US). however, u're persistance for that song has motivated me to try and download all of Bloc Party's b-side material. i have both their albums and a few EP's/singles, but there are still a few songs out there i dont have. i'm kindof a completionist, especially with my fav bands (Bloc Party is DEF in my top 5, yes, of ALL TIME).

    It's also just a b-side here, but I still have hope for it, since NIN's Perfect Drug isn't on any of their albums either!!
    Oh, and yeah, you really have to download Bloc Party's B-Sides, especially the one from Weekend in the City, which IMO are even better than the A-Side stuff!!

    And I know what you are talking about, I have the same thing going on with MEW. I have every single song by them. I even have 3 songs that they recorded for their first demo, which was on a compact cassette and of course never released.

    But Bloc Party is the band I have the second most songs from. Like I said, the Weekend in the City B-Side stuff is amazing, the best Bloc Party songs if you ask me.

    I voted yes, because Bloc Party represents a new breed of music, good modern rock.

    My Ideal pack would be something like:

    This Modern Love
    Pioneers / The Marshals are Dead / Storm and Stress
    Positive Tension (I've requested this song already)

    Oh and I agree that BP has a mess of great b-sides, The Marshals Are Dead, Storm and Stress, Cain said to Abel, Staying Fat, Version 2.0, all are amazing songs, IMO a lot of the "AWITC" b-sides are better than the actual album.

    Exactly what I said. It is true.

    I would say:
    AWITC B-Side songs > Silent Alarm > AWITC A-side > Silent Alarm B-Side

    Forget just a couple songs we need both full albums and slient alarm remixed. Sorry if that seems like a little much I just love Bloc Party. Their music is just begging to be on rockband.
  • ColdplayerColdplayer Headliner
    edited March 2008
    I love the remix of So Here We Are, but there are also some remixes I don't like.

    Well, we won't get the Remixed album anyway, no chance. If there would be any chance, then it's probably going to be Silent Alarm. Which is good, but I'd like WITC too.

    Wait, I want WITC B-Sides! :P

    As long as it's not the American-hating song "Helicopter" then I'm fine with it. I actually really liked that song until I bothered to listen to the words.
  • FatWilmaFatWilma Road Warrior
    edited March 2008
    man, i dont understand all this Helicopter hate. i would LOVE to play helicopter in RB. that, knights of cydonia, and cult of personality are the only reasons i pop in GH3 anymore. but thats cool, i can live without Helicopter as long as we get at least SOME Bloc Party dlc.

    to xbadx1233 (from another thread): why don't u just post in this thread and help keep it alive then? this thread's got all kinds of different songs listed as well as videos and a flippin' poll. what more can u ask for?
  • ColdplayerColdplayer Headliner
    edited March 2008
    I don't hate Helicopter because of it's lyrics. I actually don't hate the song at all. But I just listened to it to much. And I think it's one of their weakest songs. I think they have so much better songs than Helicopter. Also, Helicopter was already in Guitar Hero, time for something new.

    Haha yes I have, I own Silent Alarm, but I haven't been listening to them for a while now. I didnt even realize it was on GH3 as I bought the bundle solely for the Les Paul guitar haha.

    yeah, a friend of mine who loves Bloc Party has GH3 for ps2 and asked me about why 360 had songs on the disc that ps2 didnt. he didn't realize u need to unlock them in co-op tour.

    Coldplayer, i hear ya, but Helicopter and Banquet are what got me into Bloc Party in the first place, so i'm a bit partial to them. they are probably the 2 songs i've listened to the most as well, but only becuase i was obsessed with them at first. i've grown to love all their stuff so much now, like i said earlier, they are definitely in my top 5 favorite bands of all time.

    and btw, i just got most all the b-sides and i must say, they are indeed very good! i can't believe i didn't know about these until today. My favs so far are The Once and Future King, Version 2.0, Cain Said to Abel and Rhododendron.

    Yep, those are good. Mine are, of course, Rhododendron ;) but also Selfish Son!

    yeah, Selfish Son is really good as well. I'd put that behind Rhododendron in my current order of faves on the B-Sides. there are still a few songs i dont have yet, but i'm working on it...

    i don't get it tho, why would they have excluded some of these songs from Weekend? it makes no sense, a few are definitely better than some of the tracks on Weekend. maybe when HMX is gettin Rhododendron for RB, they can ask them directly and let us know ;)

    helicopter was one of my favorite GH3 to play.
    like how Bloc party sounds (I know of other of their songs, can't remember their name) I'd enjoy some for rock band for sure
