i really liked the intro song !! :)

I know people have probably said this a lot, but I know there are so many "hardcore" fans who would metaphorically 'die' if some folks would go back and start trying to plug-in the Pro-Mode notation for the songs starting from Rock Band 1 and then slowly move up through Rock Band 2 and so on. It doesn't even have to be the old DLC just yet- just the tracks from the discs. I admit I don't understand all of the paperwork and back-and-forth that goes into getting a single song made available, but it seems it wouldn't be as difficult to do it if the 5 button versions were already 'Okay'd, you know what I mean?

Where Is The Sekshun 8 Tracks If You need A Sample Of There Songs Take A Listen To The Guitar Rifs In There Song Black Wing Butterfly In This Link

Thanks for filling us in on what's coming. Enjoyed the DLC request exasperation starting at 34'; haha I can only imagine!

That is why I only say that I am surprised when I don't see certain material in rock band that I request. I can't imagine the kind of hoops it takes to get the stuff in the game legally.

you guys should just throw us Wasting Light in its entirety. can never have enough Grohl.

Bark at the moon...?????

An RBN song by a non-HMX-related band featured in a podcast?! Spiffy.
