(hope there’s no thread on this matter already)
I know there’s a ton of DLC on the way (500 songs by the end of the year including RB 2, or so they said), and I know this thread will be completely useless, but just for the sake of it and the pleasure of arguing/dissing our musical taste : what would be the 10 tracks (or track packs) you would absolutely like to see in Rock Band and its sequel ?
Not the perfect set list nor the objective set list, just songs you would love to play, and why. It can be anything of course, since the game already cover a wide musical range, from Duran Duran to Machine Head, but at least let’s keep things believable - no Stairway to Heaven, since we all know where Jimmy Page stands on using his masters for musical games.
My dream list as of today :
AC/DC - Squealer. Best Angus Young solo ever in my book, probably a bore for everyone else though (vocals, drums, bass)…
A Deep Purple pack, with at least Lazy & Child in Time. Like Squealer Child in time would be pretty boring for the most part (and rather hard to sing), but I would love to play the solo. As for Lazy, well, just listen to the song, what’s not to like ?
A UFO pack with Boogie for George/Rock Bottom, self explanatory, great guitar riffs, great guitar solo for Rock Bottom.
Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing. Come on, 6 Guitar Hero games, two Rock Bands, no Mark Knopfler ?? Perfect in almost every area, guitar, singing, drums, bass…
Suicidal Tendencies - Lost Again. I need to work my double strums and on my endurance as a drummer…
The Cramps - I was a teenage werewolf. This game needs some psychobilly !
Soundgarden - Rusty Cage. Many Soundgarden songs would be good of course but this one clearly has the energy required. I can totally picture me and my friends playing it.
Girls against Boys - Kill the sexplayer. Sexy and noisy as hell, love the drums.
And I would also love some Mclusky, more Queens of the Stone Age, but that’s definitely not going to happen.
