Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Eh, I'm pretty decent at Expert and I don't even use the RB guitar. Another tip is to incorporate strums at the beginning of a pattern, whether you need to or not. This helps with consistency. If it is a bunch of triplets, strum the first note in each even though you don't have to. Now you don't have to worry about re-strumming when you miss because you will have done that already.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'll probably grab a lot of those. At least the Offspring pack anyway.

It also looks like my copy of RB2 finally arrived, so let's do that TBBS band.

Random note - the Rock Band 2 20 song download key thing is online now. Still no idea when the actual songs will be made available.

Also, I'm sure people here know more about music than I do, so I'm just wondering of all the album downloads so far, (Rush, Megadeath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Who, Pixies, The Cars, Judas Priest) which are the best single(s) to grab from each?

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

There's always the option of going onto YouTube and looking up every song because all the Rock Band tracks are there somewhere.

But if you are interested in songs you've heard before, these are the hits:

RUSH
Limelight
Tom Sawyer
Vital Signs

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS
Under the Bridge
Breaking the Girl
Suck My Kiss
(Note that Give It Away isn't available to download)

PIXIES
Here Comes Your Man
Monkey Gone to Heaven

THE CARS
Just What I Needed
My Best Friend's Girl
Good Times Roll
(Moving In Stereo, while not a hit, was the song used in Fast Times at Ridgemont High for the famous Phoebe Cates pool scene)

I downloaded the entire pack of The Who even though I didn't know half the songs. You'd probably know Baby O'Reilly and Who Are You (the CSI: NY and CSI theme songs) and Summertime Blues.

If you haven't gotten it already, in my opinion the Boston pack is the best one of them all.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Guitar Hero: Aerosmith... Guitar Hero: Metallica... Rock Band: AD/DC?

.....

The AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band Track Pack will be available as a stand-alone product for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 2 in North America for $39.88 and the PlayStation 2 for $29.88. A Wii edition will arrive on November 16 for $39.88 in the US and Canada, with all four versions hitting the UK, Europe, and Australasia in December.

......

While the game will be available at "most major retailers" internationally, domestically it will only have one source. The The New York Times reports that in the US, the AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band Track Pack will only be sold at Wal-Mart, its Sam's Club subsidiary, and its online store. The megaretailer has struck a deal with AC/DC's label, Sony-owned Columbia Records, to promote Black Ice through dedicated stands in its stores peddling AC/DC albums, DVDs, T-shirts, and other merchandise--including games.

.....

Gamers who want to incorporate the songs from the new game into their regular Rock Band and Rock Band 2 repertoires are in luck. "All tracks from the AC/DC LIVE: Rock Band Track Pack will also be available for play in Rock Band and Rock Band 2 by entering a special export authentication code for the Xbox 360...and PlayStation 3," said MTV Games in a statement. No mention was made of the versions for Wii and PS2.

.....

"Thunderstruck"
"Shoot to Thrill"
"Back in Black"
"Hell Ain't a Band Place to Be"
"Heatseeker"
"Fire Your Guns"
"Jailbreak"
"The Jack"
"Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap"
"Moneytalks"
"Hell's Bells"
"High Voltage"
"Whole Lotta Rosie"
"You Shook Me All Night Long"
"T.N.T."
"Let There Be Rock"
"Highway to Hell"
"For Those About to Rock (We Salute You)"

Even practicing at 70, 80, 90 percent doesn't help too much. Not on expert.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

More album downloads... gyack. Honestly, I wish they would go back to doing the genre packs. There are all these <genre> 1 packs but they haven't done any more in that vein.

I can't wait for this. WalMart exclusive or whatever, I'm all over it.

I like the album downloads. I don't buy the whole thing, but if I know the songs I'll download them and usually these albums have a couple hits. I downloaded three songs of The Cars and will get two from Motley Crue.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I was going to say I was wondering when we in Europe would get this AC/DC edition but given that EA has not exactly treated Europe well when it comes to Rock Band, I won't hold my breath.

We still don't have a date for Rock Band 2 yet. PS2, PS3 and Wii owners have only just seen Rock Band 1.

Well, when they do come, at least you don't have to buy them at Walmart.

See, I'd rather have them pick and choose the songs that are "good". Even a best of mega pack would be better than an album for me, especially since these songs don't mean anything to me just from looking at them.

Go to YouTube and you might recognize Dr. Feelgood and Without You. Their other hits from the album are Kickstart My Heart, Don't Go Away Mad and Same Ol' Situation, but I can't place them.

When they release DLC by the album, you can always wiki the album and it'll tell you all the hits.

Nah, they'll just be Asda exclusive instead which is the same thing.
