- Maiden, Mother and Crone
- The Black River
They are featured in Guitar Hero 5 and Guitar Hero Metallica respectively.
FeelAbout, who already has a song on RBN, has a new album coming out in a few months. I don't think the authoring group who did their first song (Stop) is still active. It'd be awesome if another group could get more.
Has anyone looked into Viking Funeral Records?
They are now the home of Death By Stereo, and Authority Zero, who has a song in rockband already.
Pennywise also has a record on the way under this label.
Not sure how hard it would be to get into contact with a dead band, but has anyone tried going after The Fall of Troy? They've had DLC in GH, a disk song in GH3, and their label Equal Vision Records has had their other bands go through RBN as well, i.e. Texas in July and Chiodos. If it's not possible, you could try going after Thomas's new band Just Like Vinyl, but that's last resort kind of stuff lol.
Example songs from different albums (A.K.A songs I would prefer to have on RBN lol):
I Just Got This Symphony Goin'
Reassurance Rests In The Sea
Anything of this kind of genre would be nice, I know we have songs from Dance Gavin Dance, and they're pretty similar I think.
I'll recommend a few.
The Classic Crime is currently independent, though their first three albums were on Tooth & Nail Records. I'm unsure whether they own the rights to their songs or if you'd have to ask T&N, but I've attempted contacting the band before and they haven't responded. Some of their amazing work includes The Fight, Medisin, God and Drugs, Solar Powered Life and Seattle
I also would reccomend
The Ting Tings, they are a British duo who had the hit single "That's Not My Name" that received a lot of radio airplay, has been in several movies such as Horrible Bosses, and in general is just an awesome song. I think that they currently are on Roc Nation right now. Some more of their popular work (many of which you may have heard in various commercials) includes "Shut Up And Let Me Go" "Hands" (Hands was in a FIFA game and gained a lot of popularity because of it) "Fruit Machine" "Great DJ" and my personal favorite, "Hang It Up"
And finally, I would absolutely love "L'Via L'Viaquez" by The Mars Volta* (Which was formed by former members of At The Drive-In, a band that is already part of Rock Band's ever-expanding library). Though I don't know what label they are on, so they very well could be on one of the labels that doesn't trust the RBN.
*= The version of the song in the link is the Radio version, the album version is twelve minutes long, and it would be grand if that could be the version we get if this song is brought to the platform
For any Authoring Groups that took the time to read this post and follow the links for consideration, I thank you.
