Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

It's the first time I've played in a while and I'm like around the 400s on the Cartman leaderboards.

^X is 80s punk, which I only know because "Los Angeles" was in Guitar Hero 80s.

One Republic is music for girls. The really really boring ones.


Ace Frehly is a guitarist from Kiss.

Little Fish... no clue.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I've been gone at Army basic training and AIT for the last 7 months, and finally got home 2 days ago. Sat down to play some RB2... I was bored after like 10 songs. That's not good.

The biggest hit to appear on RBN so far is Third Eye Blind's "Semi-Charmed Life," but it's not that great of a recording.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Someone did a leaderboard comparison and I thought Bang Camero had the most downloads?

Yeah, unless you're into perfecting expert runs or you can get drunk with people and sing Lady Gaga songs... there's not much there for extended play.

I'm looking forward to RB3 for the improvements, but I treat it just like itunes at this point... I use it when I'm bored and want to listen to music for 20 minutes.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I didn't mean hit as in "Rock Band downloads," I meant it as in "top of the charts" or most recognizable in pop culture.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Ahh, well, they've charted a few other big songs on RBN as well. I suppose they're the most populist though.

I just wonder what will happen though - going through RBN means your song will hit the store faster (if at all, since they seem to be picky) but you will make less money. It's a trade off for sure.

Well, I recall reading that songs that were appearing in these games were leading to music sales by the artist on iTunes and such. So bands may be making less money through the game, but they consider it worthwhile if people start buying their songs/albums. Lesser-known bands indie may find that particularly appealing.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Honestly I've still been waiting for foreign language songs to hit either platform for ages. Of course Rock Band Japan/Asia has been cancelled or whatever, but there's no reason why some dudes can't just cheaply put their songs up on the network and hope for the best.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There have been a couple of foreign language songs in Rock Band... but yeah, in general it's lacking for that.

So far the best track I've found on RBN is easily Unearth's We Are Not Anonymous. I'm not a big screamy metalcore kind of guy, but the song is awesome, and the chart is insanely fun (but not for the faint of heart).


Yeah, that's fuckin' metal!

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Jimi Hendrix!

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/03/25/ji...-next-week-up/

In addition, a previously unreleased single, "Valleys of Neptune," from a new CD of the same name, will be made available as DLC. So, not only will you try to play Jimi Hendrix solos in Rock Band, you'll play one you've never heard before. Good luck with that! "It's a whole new level of difficulty unto itself," MTV Games' Paul DeGooyer said. The thing about these tracks is if you're a Hendrix fan you know that really what powered that vibe is that he kind of just closed his eyes and flowed from his fingers, and we really tried very hard, especially on the expert level, to recreate that effect."

Only 6...
2 French, 2 German, 1 Spanish and 1 Italian song...

Platero y Tú - Hay poco Rock & Roll
Finley - Tutto e Possibile
Die Toten Hosen - Hier Kommt Alex
Juli - Perfekte Welle
Pleymo - New Wave
Les Wampas - Manu Chao

And:
Janie Hendrix, in an interview with the Los Angeles Times, revealed that she has let Jimi Hendrix's works to be used for a Rock Band game to be released later in 2010;[28][29] Harmonix later clarified that this content is not for dedicated standalone game.[30] It was revealed in March 2010 that Harmonix and MTV Games had reached an exclusive licensing agreement to release several albums for the Rock Band series, starting with Axis: Bold as Love in late March 2010, in conjunction with re-released remasters of these albums by the label, Experience Hendrix. There is also an option for Harmonix to utilize a Hendrix avatar within the series, leaving open the possibility of a Hendrix-centric title

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I hope they just keep it as DLC. No reason they can't have a download of the character/avatar.
