    I predict Nirvana- Man Who Sold the World to be the non-RBN song, and likely Bodies (but maybe a Seether song since we got one recently and they may have knocked them out on one licensing pass) as the RBN rewind if those start this week.

    Nirvana's MWStW would be a "look back" at two bands from the RB1 disc at once. People have been asking for that song and Bowie A LOT and it kind of ties that all together in a way.

    We really should get more from unplugged! MWStW would probably be the best pick too.

    I'd take Bowie's TMWStW over Nirvana's any day, but I love them both, so I'll take that song in any form we can get it.

    I think if we get anymore Nirvana, it's going to be the rewinds first. Album DLC releases were a very big deal back in the pre-RB4 era and look how excited people were at Everlong completing The Colour and the Shape back in December.

    Rewinds. Wait. I thought the season was starting this week? So no more Spotlight Passes? No more new songs? Bummer week.
  • grumblevolcanogrumblevolcano Headliner
    This week's DLC is rewinds:
    Duran Duran - "Hungry Like the Wolf"
    Radiohead - "Creep"
  • bonethug0108bonethug0108 Headliner
    Everlong was also a hugely popular FF song.

    I could see getting In Bloom some day since it was a single, but Drain You would probably be near the bottom of the rewind barrel.

    Albums WERE a part of RB, back in the day. Nowadays they have to go with what will sell (which is why we'll likely never see relicensed songs that had expired save for a rare few because a large chunk of the dlc buyers already have them).

    I think most would agree they'd rather get Dumb, Lake of Fire, MWStW, and Pennyroyal Tea before Drain You.
  • bonethug0108bonethug0108 Headliner

    I'd also love to get Lake of Fire.

    Definitely. And Dumb. Bundle those with MWStW and that'd be an ideal 3 pack.

    Meat Puppets Lake of Fire would be great too

    My prediction for next week is replacing Any Way You Want It with Pearl Jam's Alive now that no spotlight pass allows double rewind weeks to happen. While Hungry Like the Wolf is a RB2 song, it could be that discs are the boundary and so the RB2 disc appears in 2 separate challenges.

    My prediction for next week is replacing Any Way You Want It with Pearl Jam's Alive now that no spotlight pass allows double rewind weeks to happen. While Hungry Like the Wolf is a RB2 song, it could be that discs are the boundary and so the RB2 disc appears in 2 separate challenges.

    It could also just be that instead of splitting by disc releases, they're splitting by calendar year.

    2007-2008
    2009
    2010
    2011
    2012-2013
    2015-2016
    2017-2018

    And then one week that doesn't belong to the theme, or where everything counts, as they've done in some themed seasons in the past.

    My guess is we'll get 2 LEGO Rewinds next week (A-Punk plus something else?) and then either 1 RB3 song in 2010, or no more rewinds at all (except RBN which I expect we'll get for the 2010, 2011 and 2012-2013 challenges at least). Plus, strictly speaking there is nothing they can release on the 2015-2016 week that fits the theme so that could be anything.
  • I reckon next week we'll get a Lego and an RBN 1.0 rewind, then the week after RB3 and RBN 2.0, with the following specifically if I were to guess:
    • KT Tunstall: Suddenly I See (LRB)
    • Evanescence: Going Under (RBN1)
    • Spacehog: In the Meantime (RB3)
    • A Day to Remember: If It Means A Lot To You (RBN2)
    I think that might make more sense if it's chronological.
  • grumblevolcanogrumblevolcano Headliner
    @MemoDLSG That could work, as for the 2015-2016 week you could have the 3 songs that were going to be released as DLC if the RBN Fig was successful:
    Freezepop - "Phantoms"
    Inter-sect ft. Noelle LeBlanc & Naoko Takamoto - "Astrosight"
    Kabbage Boy - "Girlfriend"

    Then the final week could be RBVR songs.

    Just change the adtr song for all i want and i really love your choices, i think all i want was a bigger song and will sell more so it would be a better choice for the return of rbn (but imo any adtr is big and should sell very well so let's get them all back!)
  • patl175patl175 Unsigned
    I think they might split the challenge like this :
    Week 1 - rb1 to rb2
    Week 2 - rb2 to gdrb or lrb
    Week 3 - gdrb or lrb to rb3
    Week 4 - rb3 to blitz
    Week 5 - blitz to rb4
    Week 6 - rb4 to rivals
    Week 7 - after rivals
    Week 8 - everything available

    I don't know how many songs would be available every week this way but i think it could be a good way to play songs from every games and dlc from in between every games

    I was torn between that and All Signs Point to Lauderdale, but the other one has more Spotify plays. Assuming Spotify's a good way of telling how "big" a song is, and that alone dictates what we'll get.

    I'm not too bothered about ADTR really, but I thought they'd add a bit of variety to the other choices I'd done, and they are a pretty well-known band so any of their bigger hits should be a big seller. KT's just there as the first thing to come to mind, partly because of Rocksmith. Going Under's one of the bigger RBN 1.0 songs in general and me just being a bit selfish with the song choice. In the Meantime fits nicely with some of the 90's alternative we got in season 5.

    Great news, I lied. Harmonies will be added to RBN1.0 songs should RBHP have them.

    First glance, My eyes scanned something about “RHCP”. Got my hopes up that it was being re-listed.

    This is very good news. Though by looking at their YouTube page, it looks as though RBHP only did 53 RBN upgrades.

    Among the stuff I like, they did the two New Pornographers songs, one of the Band of Horses songs, all the Flight of the Conchords, all the Third Eye Blind, Evanescence, OK Go, and one Seether song.

    A lot of songs from that 53 are songs I don't see moving forward. And if we do get some of the Shins' songs in RB4 without harmonies, I riot.

    I feel a bit out of the loop. I know RBN songs are supposed to be coming back, but do we have any confirmed timeframe as to when, how often, etc?

    Just this season, and probably not for another few weeks.

    Only HMX know for SURE.

    There new blog says this..
    While there’s a lot of great RBN content we’re excited to release, we also have an awesome line-up of non-RBN songs for release this year.

    It almost sounds like they are making RBN Content permanent (which would be awesome.. more likely to get more content from it) and not just for Season 6.

    Yeah, seems to be just like how rewinds were promoted as a 2017 thing and continued into this year.

    I wonder if this is outside of rewinds... hmmm...

    Am I the only one who never interpreted it as RBN tracks were only happening this season? I figured they'd keep em going for a long time.
