omg Alanis!!!111ONE1!11!

Cough.

Holy Wars/The Punishment Due would be choice, but Peace Sells is fine with me. WHADDYA MEAN I'M BROKE...HUHH?

And I guess that answers the "where the Fuck is the Nirvana stuff" question. It's becoming more clear why current DLC is getting more underwhelming and "specialized" (timely promotions, etc)...all the top-notch, big name shit is being held up for RB2. Not surprising but kind of disappointing. If nothing else I'd suspect Nevermind will now be Week One DLC when Rock Band 2 arrives.

Hopefully somehow Spoonman gets deleted. That song can burn in hell.

Crap. One week after I buy Rock Band (Yes, I'm late to the party), I get this news. Oh well, at least my Boston track pack will still work with it.

I've held off on rock band and was going to get it this month, but now decided to wait till this releases. I expect it to be good especially since the old tracks can still be played.

Rock Band 2 = Garbage. What is new other than songs and minor tweaks? GH4 is gonna kill it with a whole new drum set (cymbal pads), new vocals, and a whole new guitar they won't even release info about yet. Its said to have all new notes and new features making it more like a guitar.


The GH4 drums only has one more cymbal. New vocals? How? Maybe different songs, but vocals aren't new. The 'new' guitar is the only thing different. The only way it'll get closer to being a guitar is having a way to palm mute, having multiple buttons per color (fret) to mimic the strings on a guitar, or buttons near the base of the neck. Oh wait..

remind me again - what was so earth shattering going from GH1 to GH2 or GH3?

Not disappointing at all, actually. I'd rather pay $60 for 60 kick ass songs on a disc than $120 for the DLC versions of the same shit.

Testify by Rage is nice, but I'd love to have Township Rebellion as DLC or something. It has a lot of F bombs in it though, so a censored version would kind of suck.

I was going to make it myself since I'm one of the few that will actually update the damn thing, but I guess this guy wants to jump the gun. So, hockeyfun66@, I hope you prove my suspicions wrong. Keep your shit updated. If that doesn't happen, hopefully LinkinPrime will take over this post once E3 rolls around (or someone will just make another one).


Go for it and get this shit closed down. An OP that will update track listing, features and whatnot would be great.

While the Strat isn't perfect, we've grown anti-click at the Courageous household. The GH guitar's click just takes away too much from the feeling of playing unless you turn up the sound really loud. I would like them to find some middle ground. A strum that is silent but not so mushy.

The Strats 3/4 scale size also wins over GH's fun size.

Harmonix plans on "broadening the musical genres of available downloadable content" for Rock Band, with MTV president Van Toffler mentioning that they plan to take the Rock Band platform and open it up to "the genres of music to country, hip-hop and R&B".


That made me make a "I just smelled a really bad fart" face. Come on, let's stay at least a little focused? Please? Make another game for that shit, I don't want G-Unit DLC for Rock Band clogging up a release week that could be occupied by something worthwhile.

Yeah, I probably will once we hear more. I don't think many people would object. This thread can be a speculation/leaked news house for now.

Agreed. Only song about a big ass that I want to hear is just Big Bottom from Spinal Tap and that's it.

Feel free to lynch me, but I'd love to play some "Bad Boy For Life."

Haha I'm not even joking... it would be fun.

oooh and how about Cypress Hill doing "Rock Superstar"??? Or the similarly titled "Ghetto Supastar" with Pras/Mya/Wyclef (there could be a fun bass chart for that one)? Haha def not for everyone but there's plenty of possible songs on the hip-hop side that I could see myself downloading.

There is nothing worse than playing songs on rockband that have very little or no real instruments actually used in their recording.

Agreed. As long as these other genres don't take the place of our regular 3 rock tunes and are in addition to, I don't care. Once they start creeping into being the only thing for that week, then I have a problem.

Totally disagree. It's a game, not a music simulator. If the song is good and the charts are fun/challenging, that's all that matters.
Also, as a musician myself, I will take issue with the term 'real instruments' as being meaningless.

I'm sorry, it just feels lame when I'm drumming to a synthesizer or strumming a guitar to samples.
