New Song For RBN?

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.


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.
Video 1-
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.
Superdrag- "Aspartme"
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.
