*flips a table*
Yes they are awesome.
The band very much want their music in the game. They approved it and everything was going great, then the label went :
Talked to the band with the new album. Still very much want their stuff in Rock Band.
Label still says
So yeah again.
*sets table back up*
*FLIPS TABLE AGAIN!*
See? I warned you.
If I can't have Protest the Hero then how about Snot? They had Deadfall in the newest Guitar Hero and would be a blast for everything (well not Keys or really Vocals unless you like Hardcore Punk/Thrash Metal vocals). They are basically a Thrash Metal meets Hardcore Punk band and I love it :D
Some lesser known bands I'd love to see in RBN:
Giuffria - when Call to the Heart became a hit in 1984, everybody thought this was Journey. I'd love to get that and I Must Be Dreaming. TRIVIA: Giuffria's vocalist sang the SpongeBob song "Sweet Victory."
Autograph - I'm pretty sure this band was mentioned in the TAG kickstarter thread (which I just bumped). Their big hit is Turn Up the Radio, but I'd buy a full album Sign In Please DLC without a second thought.
Angra - Brazilian power metal, I particularly like "Rebirth" but they have several albums. I'd love Nova Era.
l'm like to see these bands in RBN
Nile ~ (A USA Technical Death Metal Band)
ALLEGAEON ~ (A USA Melodic Technical Death Metal Band)
Decapitated ~ (A polish Technical Death Metal Band)
More songs of Septicflesh too
And J-Music....(Can't I Dreaming?)
jajaja and my list never ends ^^
I can't remember if I mentioned this one already, but I don't think I have...
With Ozone's success in bringing John Parr to the RBN, I wonder if Billy Vera might be in reach. He's best known "At This Moment", which I would buy in a heartbeat. Sure, it's a little slow, but it's got great keys and a great vocal track.
Rhino has put out a few Vera compilations, but originally "At This Moment" and its album were released on Alfa Records, an independent label. It seems Sony has distribution rights to Alfa's back catalog now, or at least they did as of 2001. Either way, perhaps Vera and other Alfa artists have some control over their old recordings?
Do we know if Heart of Cygnus was ever contacted by a group?
New Hollow - "She Ain't You"
I looked around a little to see what label this band is on, and to my great surprise they're actually still unsigned. I first heard this song at work, at a major department store, between Green Day and Taylor Swift, so they're a fairly big deal. Yes, they're the biggest deal to screaming 15 year old girls, but come on, listen to the freaking song. It's not half bad. I'd instabuy it for $2.
