    I took a listen to the Abbey Road songs that aren't already in the game, and they don't seem that interesting to me except for one song.

    ^You are wrong.

    The medley is worth the price of admission by itself.

    The medley is freaking epic! I'm so happy Harmonix has let us play this.

    Because someone has to be the opposite of Neversoft?

    Hopefully, Lego Rock Band will be better than Guitar Hero: Warrant, Guitar Hero: Jonas Brothers, Guitar Hero: Avril Lavigne and Kenny G Hero.

    I'll get 'Dragula' for the camp value, but otherwise I'm not much into Rob Zombie.

    Nice to see some more Nirvana, but how many Foo Fighters songs are there on RB now? 20-something? They should've just released it on a disc like AC/DC so people could complain about it on the Internet...

    Guitar Hero? Guitar Hero? Srsly? We don't take kindly to Guitar Hero 'round these parts.

    But seriously, that just sounds like a bunch of crap nobody has ever heard of. I remember An Endless Sporadic from previous GH iterations, and Impulse in GH3 was a lot of fun to play, so that might be interesting. But I preferred the GH3 free stuff which was all stuff I somewhat knew, Dropkick Murhpies, Top Gun Theme, Halo Theme, etc...

    Well, The Touch was a freebee.

    Anyway, the Lego Rock Band export is based on the RB1 technology, so it's a disc rip for anyone curious about it.

    Rock Band 2, game only, is currently on sale for $20 at Best Buy for PS2, PS3, 360 and Wii. Seems to be selling out fast.

    Well, i wont buy any GH DLC either, since HMX charts songs better, but it is a free trackpack, so i will probably get it...
    And overall the GH guitars seem to be better then the RB ones...
    I still use the GH3 Les Paul...
