Other (please specify)
I've already contacted: Porcupine Tree (via a band member who is a friend), IQ, Marillion (who has responded), Spock's Beard and Pendragon.
These extend by solo project associations to: Transatlantic, Neal Morse, Flower Kings, Jadis and perhaps even Dream Theater (since Mike Portnoy moves in the whole Transatlantic circle).
Poll is silly because it only accepts one option. Anyways, answer is metal of course. (pass the death and thrash though)
ps. I hate dividing music into genres..

Id also like to see some Primus.
because Primus is a genre of its own.
I'd really like to see new genres and neglected genres get some lovin'....RBN may be the best bet to see some ample helpings of stuff like metal sub-genres (death, black, melodic, etc), techno, synthpop, industrial, singer-songwriter/acoustic, jazz, reggae, fusion, hip-hop, R&B, indie, world music, country, disco/dance, pop....just off the top of my head.
One genre that I *wouldn't* expect to see much from (unfortunately) is Classic Rock, except for modern revivalists like Bang Camaro. The simple fact of the matter is that the true classic rockers from the 80s and earlier are probably (a) dead; (b) too old and crotchety to get involved in that newfangled music video game stuff; (c) impossible to obtain working masters from; or (d) too damn big and rich and famous to take the DIY route on RBN; the classic rockers interested in the game are far more likely to go through HMX channels for RB2 instead of RBN.

Freaky as it may sound, I definitely would like to see more Emo and Glam.
I'd really like to see Electronica in the game. I'd love to see some Plaid, Boards of Canada, Future Sound of London, Autechre, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Meat Beat Manifesto and Orbital.
I may have helped bring Rust in Peace to Rock Band.
