If (by some great fortune) The Mars Volta got dlc what would be the top 3 songs you'd like to see? I know its difficult because the names of the songs are so weird but whatever.

    Inertiatic ESP, hands down. Oh and I've stated it before, can't remember where exactly so I can't give a source, but i read that HMX got the rights to an unspecified number of TMV's record labels library of artists, so there's a high probability it could happen.

    Any song by them would be great. I'm too tired and lazy to list my top three

    best song ever written

    ok less tired now

    top picks:
    -Goliath
    -something off deloused (maybe Roulette Dares or Apparatus)
    -Tetragammation
    - any song off Frances the Mute (minus Cassandra Gemini....too epic for me)

    You gotta think about it, Harmonix probably won't want to add some of their 10+ minute songs to Rock Band. They'd either have to edit them or go with some of their shorter ones.



    Contradicting what I just said though, I think "Viscera Eyes" would be great.

    Roulette Dares would work pretty well for rock band, I think. And most deloused songs.

    And the new album would work well too, I think. Amputechture and Frances don't go well in a rock band context, I do not think.

    I heard that too, so fingers crossed

    My want list goes

    Inertiatic ESP
    Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt,
    Roulette Dares (The Haunt of),


    As the more reasonable songs, length wise, while if say

    Tetragrammaton

    got put in RockBand I would go absolutely ape **** over if this I mean I would pay like 300-350 Microsoft Points for Tetragrammaton alone, with it being a 16 minute song.

    Mars Volta are not The Grateful Dead.

    I would take any song from The Mars Volta, but these are my picks.

    -Take the Veil Cerpin Taxt
    -Concertina
    -Agadez

    Concertina would be amazing.
    How about Metatron? Its one of my favourite TMV songs along with Roulette Dares.

    Yea, they are actually good. The games called rockband not bluesband. I don't mind The Grateful Dead in the game, I just think they don't need 6 songs and neither does Judas Priest.

    Metatron, Askepios, Day Of The Baphomets

    Basically anything by them would be glorious.
    And I dare Harmonix to chart Cassandra Gemini ;)

    I'd rather have At the Drive-In than the Mars Volta

    One Armed Scissor - by At the Drive-in

    This is a good list, as they're all great songs and fairly realistic in terms of length.

    Any TMV would be a dream come true, but man would they ever be tough. The drums would put The Perfect Drug to shame. :)

    How did I forget Day of the Baphomets?! That song would convince me to give singing a try!

    ha. if time wasnt a problem id say l'via l'viaquez.

    as for the reasonable list, you guys have a good pack pegged. i might switch inertiatic and cicatriz. maybe
  • stonepwnystonepwny Unsigned

    Cicatriz ESP
    L'Via L'Viaquez
    Tetragrammaton or Viscera Eyes
    Goliath or Wax Simulacra

    The whole band is incredibly intense you could qualify most of these songs in the Impossible to play category. C'mon Devs give us a challenge: GIVE US THE MARS VOLTA!

    The Widow
    Goliath
    Vermicide

    Although it's tough to choose only 3. Day of the Baphomets, Roulette Dares, and Tetragrammaton would be my alternates.

    Mars Volta would be awesome on all instruments, almost any song

    The Mars Volta is a fantastic band and easily deserves a few songs in Rock Band. Nearly every song of theirs would be incredibly fun on every instrument, but I'm sure the singers would feel a little silly singing the odd lyrics. I think this would make a pretty good three pack:

    Son et Lumi

    i would love to see:

    Ilyena (from Bedlam in Goliath)
    Viscera Eyes (from Amputecture)
    Goliath (from Bedlam in Goliath)

    Viscera Eyes is amazing, would work well with rock band. Drums are IMPOSSIBLE though.

    Would love to see some Mars Volta in RB.

    Drunkship of Lanterns is a personal favorite, would be wicked on guitar.

    My three: "Roulette Dares", "Drunkinship of lanters" "Eriatarka"
    But good God man. If they ever released anything by the Mars Volta I would just completely freak out. That would be the best news of all time.

    Great musicians...but I hate the lead singer. He is worthless.

    that song would be so amazing in this game!
    any of their songs would be top tier for vocals and drums, with guitar and bass also being rough...
