If HMX didn't announce Muse at a European convention, at the same time they announced other popular European bands, I don't think the chances of Muse being on disc are any better.
All that being said, there are still about 40+ songs to announce. HMX not having the likes of Muse, Coldplay and Radiohead on disc (especially with the new keyboard peripheral) would be a HUGE waste.
it just might not be on disc, but it might be DLC
I wonder if Muse knows that they are in such high demand for the RB series
Rock Band 3 not having Muse makes me a saaaaaaad panda.
I mean, seriously, 1 song wouldn't hurt anybody. HMX had an array before them:
- "Sunburn", "Muscle Museum", "Fillip" or "Cave" off of Showbiz
- "New Born", "Bliss", "Space Dementia", "Citizen Erased", "Feeling Good" or "Megalomania" off of Origin Of Symmetry
- "Apocalypse Please", "Sing For Absolution", "Stockholm Syndrome", "Butterflies & Hurricanes" or "Ruled By Secrecy" off of Absolution
- "Take A Bow", "Starlight", "Map Of The Problematique", "City Of Delusion", "Hoodoo" or "Knights Of Cydonia" off of Black Holes & Revelations
- "Resistance", "Undisclosed Desires", "United States Of Eurasia", "Unnatural Selection" or "MK Ultra" off of The Resistance
From a total of 5 albums, there's a pool of 26 songs they could've picked to show off keys and harmonies and they can't even scrape up 1? Seriously, WTF?
(And don't even get me started on the lack of Coldplay [a great band for keys] and Radiohead [a band I might not care for, but that has a metric crap ton of keys in their music])
Now that I'm about 99% sure we aren't getting Muse in RB3, I can't wait for October 26th, so I can finally go back to hopelessly anticipating Muse DLC each week... :(
Curse You HARMONIX/MUSE!!!!
Muse not making RB3 makes me very sad... our hopes and dreams are crushed. Have we lost the fight y'all?
There is still definitely one song we don't know about yet, and possibly as many as 4. As long as they fall between A - C, there is still a possibility of Muse appearing on disc. Though its not looking that likely...
Maybe Muse isn't in RB3 because they're preparing a huge 12-pack DLC for launch? Grasping at straws? Not I. :/
