Just got the stems for yet another rapper to put in #RBN. BUT WHO???
I dropped a couple hints on Twitter:
@The_Ozone OK, OK, I'll drop one hint: Remember that band I "thought" you got for #RBN the other day? He's worked with them.
Another hint, I've mentioned this band on this site before.
Anyways, it's GAMES OUTSIDE MY JURISDICTION NEWSTIME!!!
We now know the FULL Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock soundtrack, due to a YouTube video that has since been taken down. Regardless, some standouts for me:
"Cryin'" by Aerosmith- THis one sounds like it'd be a fun number. It alternates between between hard and soft, and the vocals will be hard, but it's not jumpy.
"Burnin' For You" by Blue Oyster Cult- Hey, this guy was at my school! Although it sounds like one of those songs better suited for Rock Band 3 than Guitar Hero, unless they're doing the whole "WHAT KEYBOARD? IT WAS GUITAR THE WHOLE TIME" thing.
"Fortunate Son" by Creedence Clearwater Revival- Meh. It's already in Rock Band DLC, so I'm not terribly excited. Not even a hard song either.
"How You Remind Me" by Nickelback- Fuck. This. Noise. Next Topic!
Scrappy underdog Power Gig: Rise Of The Six String also released some more of it's tracklist, let's check it out!
P.S. The Expendables looks awesome. Looks. That's the keyword.
The Black Keys- "Strange Times"- Meh, indie's a big risk in these games. It'll either be really interesting, or... gulp... shoegaze!
Paramore- "Ignorance"- They're going for some deep cuts, huh? At least I can remember hearing it somewhere before. also, at 0:54 in the first video here, grafix fail.
The Academy Is...- "His Girl Friday"- Sounds like Fall Out Boy.
Bad Religion- "I Want To Conquer The World"- Boy, for a Bad Religion song... you think there would be a lot more intensity.
Video 2- "Be prepared to have a Mangasm?" Really Ain't It Cool News?
Black Sabbath- "The Devil Cried"- Boy, for a Black Sabbath song, you think there would be more intensity.
New Found Glory- "Listen To Your Friends". At first it looked boring to play, but then they showed a shot of the fingers on the fretboard and it looks a lot better than Rock Band 2. 3's what you need to worry about.
Mastadon- "Crack The Skye" These trailers are at least showing us some other guitarists, but he looks more like an art critic than a metalhead.
Video 3- "This movie [The Expendables] has ALL THE HEROES" NO WAY!!! Too bad I'm already seeing Scott Pilgrim the 13th and Green Day the next day. Shit, I think I might be a pussy.
Queens Of THe Stone Age- "Long Song Name"- Now, I SWEAR I've heard this in a Tony Hawk or something. I guess with Guitar Hero and Rock Band already so huge, the "I think I heard this in another game" is the best they can get.
Surfer Blood- "Swim"- See my comment on The Black Keys
The Get Up Kids- "Martyr Me"- NOPE.
3 Days Grace- "Break" My little brother likes this song, therefore I've already heard it 100 times today.
Mute Math- "Chaos"- Well, at least they named the song right.
