February 2019 DLC Prediction Thread: ValenTen's Day (Because Season 10 of Rivals, Get It?)

13456
The final week of January DLC has been unveiled, so I will waste no further time: it's time to start looking towards February.

Is it too much to hope that this is the year I finally get Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me" for Valentine's Day? Fingers crossed!

  • Well next Tuesday is my birthday, so I have to hope we are getting Ayreon... but realistically I am sure it is just gonna be some modern country stuff, or some pop music that I never heard before

    I had the Kane Brown and Old Dominion week fall directly on my birthday, so I feel your pain.
  • I hope for a Valentine's Day pack. Those always bring great stuff.

    I'm listening to The Bends as I type this, and it's been a while since "Karma Police" and the "Creep" rewind, so I'd like to predict/request Radiohead taking Heart's place in Season 10, and giving us "Paranoid Android" and "Just".

    If each season had two classic songs from a big act, it'd be a lot easier to stomach all the new pop/rock singles we get. "Crazy on You" and "Magic Man" were like an oasis in the middle of the desert in Season 9.

    Any Radiohead is good Radiohead. High and Dry would be my first "popular" choice.
  • Hmm, the Season 10 spotlight pass is the same price as the Season 9 spotlight pass so I think Valentines Day will be an exception from the usual modern discounted songs on odd number challenge weeks.

    2/7 - Bring Me the Horizon
    Pray For Plagues
    Mantra (spotlight pass)

    2/14
    Paramore - "Misery Business" (rewind)
    Mayday Parade - "Miserable at Best" (spotlight pass)

    2/21 - RBN
    Attack Attack! - "Stick Stickly" (spotlight pass)
    Arch Enemy - "Nemesis"
    Mastodon - "Megalodon"

    2/28 - 2018
    Mumford & Sons - "Guiding Light" (spotlight pass) (25% off for 2 weeks)
    Arctic Monkeys - "Four Out of Five" (spotlight pass) (25% off for 2 weeks)

    I really want something, anything, from the Arctic Monkeys' newest album.

    But do you think that "Miserable at Best" is actually something we'd ever get in RB? It's probably one of Mayday's most popular tracks, but it's only vocals and piano. It would require a lot of alt-charting and wouldn't be a good pick for RB in my opinion.

    I think it could be possible, Three Lives showed us that spotlights don't need to have all 4 parts and you could split the piano between guitar and bass like plenty of RBN songs did.

    The Australians will be letting us know in about 24 hours (?) how many songs are in the Season 10 pass.

  • 2/21 - RBN
    Attack Attack! - "Stick Stickly" (spotlight pass)
    Arch Enemy - "Nemesis"
    Mastodon - "Megalodon"

    Stick Stickly as a Spotlight Pass song would make people so mad lol

    If I had my pick I'd have Street Spirit as the side piece with Paranoid Android.

    But damn, they could pair Paranoid Android with Baby Shark and force me to buy both together and I'd do it with glee.

    That's a pretty awesome Valentine's week.
  • Dream Theater's new album comes out in February. Maybe Fall into the Light with a Panic Attack rewind?

    11 songs confirmed in the spotlight pass with the same price as last season so that's a confirmed 5 $1.99 and 6 25% off for 2 weeks songs.

    Technically it can't be "confirmed" unless they outright say it, but it IS likely.

    Hope we get a Valentine’s Day pack this year.

    2/14 Kiss me it’s Valentine’s Day pack 01
    Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer
    Kiss Me Deadly- Lita Ford (spotlight)
    Love Gun - Kiss

    Such an instabuy for me.

    And for my obscure 80s hard rock suggestion:
    Vampire Kiss by Baton Rouge
  • Hope we get a Valentine’s Day pack this year.

    2/14 Kiss me it’s Valentine’s Day pack 01
    Kiss Me - Sixpence None The Richer

    10/10 would buy

    What is possible in the world of Rock Band?

    Keys return: no way!
    Beatles DLC exports: never!
    Led Zep: not anytime soon, probably never. even if "something" were to change, the timing is all wrong for something so expensive
    Christmas-themed DLC: nope! the current set of decision makers all seem to be convinced that those kinds of songs will only sell for a few weeks out of the year, and that model just doesn't work out right

    Valentines Day themed DLC: hmmmm. That is NOT IMPOSSIBLE: Love is timeless! So is the agony of love gone wrong.

    ...

    but

    ....

    there has been no comment so far.

    What should we interpret this silence to mean re: getting themed DLC on the 14th?
    YES, but:
    1) the last time someone asked them [reddit?] it was too early to give an official response / the DLC wasn't locked in place yet
    2) they can't comment before the 12th, because "licensing is hard"
    3) they can't comment before the 12th, because that would stir up excitement, and they never want to take attention away from the most recent DLC offering

    NO, but:
    1) there hasn't been a swarm of public requests to give a firm answer, so they don't feel compelled to comment
    2) they can't comment before the 12th, because that would bum people out and take attention away from the most recent DLC offering

    MAYBE [= the DLC still isn't locked into place 100%]

    So, believe what you want to believe, no guess is impossible! Well, unless your guess involves getting a huge pack from well-known artists [or any of the features specified at the top]
    Doesn't hurt to ask.
