  • Always cool to see another wishlist thread and there are some pretty good tunes on here. DEFINITELY not going to copy some of these into my wishlist spreadsheet, not at all! ;)

    As for your genres, most of them look okay but there are a few that I'd alter, mostly for consistency with RB4, but a couple because I think they're a better fit.
    1970 - 1979
    • 1972: Rocket Man - Elton John ROCK -> Classic Rock
    • 1973: Live and Let Die - Paul McCartney & Wings ROCK -> Classic Rock
    • 1979: Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! (A Man After Midnight) - ABBA POP/DANCE/ELECTRONIC -> Pop-rock
    1980 - 1989
    • 1983: Cum on Feel the Noize - Quiet Riot GLAM -> Metal (though I would count Slade as glam)
    • 1983: Mr. Roboto - Styx POP/DANCE/ELECTRONIC -> Classic rock
    • 1983: The Walk - The Cure POP/DANCE/ELECTRONIC -> New Wave
    2000 - 2009
    • 2006: Beelzeboss - Tenacious D METAL -> Rock (though only for the sake of consistency)

    In addition "Down Under" by Men At Work is already available as DLC. At least, it was - I don't think it has been delisted, but I'm not certain on that one. "Bodies" by Drowning Pool was available on the RBN for Rock Band 3, but since RBN tracks aren't exportable to RB4 I can kinda let you off on that one. ;)

    Overall I'd say this is a strong 8/10 song list. Not too keen on most of your 1990s songs, but the rest looks pretty good. Quite a few there are ones I'm amazed we haven't got yet.

    Thank you! I'll make those changes :)
    Oh wow cool, hmm I get a new slot for kicking out Down Under!
  • Yes to Toxic!

    Also I'll add On Top of The World by Imagine Dragons as I see you have Best Day of My Life by American Authors.

    Also Drive By by Train popped up in my head reading your list.

    I replaced it with:

    1982: Living on the Ceiling - Blancmange NEW WAVE
