You might want to update your master list, a lot of those bands should marked as Confirmed.

Well I emailed the metal band Obituary and got this back.
Thanks for the info, we will definitely be checking it out!!
So Obituary might be coming to RBN or so I hope.
added the e-mail in attachments for the proof
Just emailed Beggars Group, a conglomerate that used to be known as Beggars Banquet. Beggars Group now houses Matador, Rough Trade Records, XL Recordings, and 4AD. Just so you know, that's a ****load of major talent, covering bands like The Cult, Radiohead, Beck, MIA, The Breeders, Adele, Sigur Ros, My Morning Jacket, Sonic Youth, Vampire Weekend, The Strokes, Mission of Burma, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, Arcade Fire, The Decemberists, and pretty much every band Jack White has ever been in.
Hope to hear back from them soon.

Sent an email to Season of Mist records and they told that they're already working on getting some music in RBN.
Some Cynic would be nice...
I see on the long list of bands that are either interested or undecided the name Jeff Buckley. Does anyone have new information weather or not he will be in RBN???
Labrador Records is very interested - will hopefully have a list of which bands will be involved by the end of the week.
anything at all to say on the topic.
On the subject of contacting bands - dead or alive - I wonder if it wouldn't be constructive for enthusiastic & articulate members of the community to be contacting music bloggers, as well. I know that the gaming blogs have been pretty well on top of developments with the RBN, but I've not noticed that much of a response among music writers. Pitchfork, for instance, has reviewed RB: Beatles in the past, but I don't see any mention of the RBN on their site. Perhaps they aren't aware of it: perhaps they don't see Rock Band as a relevant venue and are ignoring it. (What a mistake that would be!)
I've been emailing a lot of music blogs about the RBN, pointing out the uniquely intense and social interplay between listeners, (both with each other and the music itself) that Rock Band offers. What musician *wouldn't* want fans to be learning their songs well enough to sing them, and to be enjoying their songs with friends? But I just worry that a lot of the musical community can't see past the plastic guitars.
I think that were bands to see a good writeup of the RBN on a few of the major music 'zines online, they might be more responsive to our invitations, and might just invite themselves!
You can add Pantera to the list! Nice to see skid row on there!
