Van Halen!!!

edited February 2013 in Your Ultimate Setlist
I think that Van Halen is the prototypical band for Rock Band, as it is often the first band that comes to mind when one thinks of a "rock band". With a singer, guitarist, bassist, and drummer, it would be perfect for Rock Band. So post your comments here, and what songs you would like to see (popular and lesser known) for DLC. Try to limit it to a small number though.

1. Panama
2. Little Dreamer
3. Dance the Night Away
4. Ain't Talking Bout Love
5. Romeo Delight

    Also, Panama should definitely be in Rock Band. I'm surprised it wasn't.

    There are so many VH songs that would be great for Rockband. When people hear the name Van Halen, they only think about guitar. But all the instruments would fun to play.

    If I had my wish, they would release the whole "Fair Warning" album.
    1. Mean Streets
    2. Dirty Movies
    3. Sinners Swing
    4. Hear About it Later
    5. Unchained
    6. Push Comes to Shove
    7. So This is Love
    8 One Foot Out the Door


    Some good ones not on Fair Warning:
    1. On Fire
    2. Romeo Delight
    3. Little Guitars
    4. DOA
    5. Beautiful Girls
    6. In a Simple Ryme

    Good selection - been a big fan of Fair Warning since the first time I played the cassette in my boom box (heh).

    I'm gonna have to dig up Romeo Delight - I haven't heard that in years and can't think of why people are bringing it up (I know its on Women & Children First, but that's about it).

    And I hope you're including the Little Guitars intro along with Little Guitars?

    EDIT: Okay, now I remember it - I LOVE THAT SONG

    Really? I don't think so at all. Bands like Led Zeppelin, The Who, Boston, and AC/DC definitely come to mind before Van Halen.

    The only Van Halen song I like is "Hot For Teacher".

    Amsterdam, Aftershock, Good Enough, Black and Blue, Finish What Ya Started, "5150". I thought I would add some Van Hagar to the discussion because Van Hagar is good too.

    I've said this before, but the problem with Van Halen is that Michael Anthony bass parts only come in one difficulty: very easy.

    I would pay 40 dollars for this Van Halen 6 Pack:

    Hot For Teacher
    Ain't Talkin' Bout Love
    Panama
    Runnin' With the Devil (mainly for vox & i think the gtr solo would be fun)
    Jump
    Pretty Woman (Include the Opening SOLO)

    :)

    Panama is one of the greatest rock songs of all time, of course it has to be in this game. I dont know about hot for teacher though. Its kind of overrated and im a bit iffy on it now. Mean street would be fun as hell on drums but im thinking too hard on guitar.

    im suprised nobody has said eruption, the entire song is basicly a solo!
  • m00pm00p Banned
    edited April 2008
    yes, its basically a GUITAR solo. This is rock BAND. Each instrument has to at least play a couple notes.

    Eruption/You Really Got Me (they have to go together)
    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
    Unchained
    Panama
    Hot For Teacher
    Good Enough (sure it's Van Hagar, but Sammy's alright, too)

    I know Eruption is a guitar solo, but you could do the same thing they did with Fourplay/Long Time and drop the instrumental in the single player vocal/drum modes.

    jump, hot for teacher, panama, right now.

    Eruption... just because everyone but the guitarist will be bored isn't a good reason to exclude it. oh wait having the band fail every time is.

    Can you imagine the drums on Expert with Hot for Teacher? My arms and leg get tired just thinking of it...
    But, hell yeah, I'd give my best shot. I always wanted to be Eddie, especially after he married Valerie.

    I want the 1984 album, and the Van Halen album.
    and if i can't have that, then i could settle with:
    VAN HALEN NOT VAN HAGAR SIX PACK:
    Hot For Teacher
    Runnin With The Devil
    Panama
    Ain't Talking Bout Love
    Beautiful Girls
    Jump (just so I can jump in everybodys way when i sing it, just like david lee roth)
    and if not jump, i want their cover of Pretty Woman.

    all this would make my rock band.

    I'm a huge Van Halen fan...although my setlist would stray from the mainstream VH tunes. These songs, even though relatively unknown to the mainstream, would just be insanely fun songs to play through, whether it be drums, guitar, bass, or vocals.

    1. I'm The One
    2. On Fire
    3. Loss of Control
    4. So This Is Love?
    5. Mean Street

    For mainstream hits...

    1. Jump
    2. Panama
    3. Hot For Teacher
    4. Unchained
    5. You Really Got Me

    I just can't believe there is still no Van Halen in this game. This band, at least in the DLR-era, played heavy riffed, driving rock songs, ones that just get your blood going. In my opinion, a perfect fit for a game like this :)

    2. Dreams
    3. When It's Love
    4. Poundcake
    5. Right Now

    No love for Top Jimmy or Romeo Delight?

    Van Halen & 1984 would be the most obvious album downloads. Both are chock full of 80's hard rock and 4-peice band goodness.

    We at least need: Panama, Hot for Teacher, and You Really Got Me though, if not a full album release.

    I am in full support of Van Halen in Rock Band. I'd prefer anything from the first 6 albums (the David Lee Roth years) because let's face it those hits are the better songs and will offer the best and most enjoyable gameplay. I'm really pumped because I'm seeing Van Halen again tomorrow in NJ, first time I saw them was in November at Madison Square Garden... their first time back to the greatest arena in the world in 22 years... It was an amazing show and I'm sure tomorrow night will be no different. Come on HMX, let's see some Van Halen in Rock Band!
