it up spectacularly, but maybe, just maybe, the song selections for the non-rock genres won't suck complete balls.
And if the inclusion of R&B gets me one step closer to having Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" in Rock Band, it will all be worth it.
I'm sorry, but some people still see hip-hop as a beat tape and a guy rapping over it... there's so many acts now that use live instuments.
How awesome would a Roots track like "The Seed 2.0" be on Rock Band? I would love it. You can also have awesome songs from acts like N*E*R*D or Gorillaz... all considered "hip-hop" but definitely are birthed from an actual band playing instruments.
Hell, depending on the beat, you could have a good playable song of Eminem's "Lose Yourself."
And Prince is dead-on, I'm sure he would get involved. Or look at the Micheal Jackson songs that have actual instruments.
I'm definitely getting Rock Band 2 with all the new equipment... it's all wireless and more sturdy and quiet... also, now that it's confirmed you can use all the Rock Band 1 songs, how can you go wrong?
Can't wait to see E3 next week, luckily I have vacation. sweet.
