So far posters have pointed out various technical and time constraints preventing 10 minute long songs, along with data pointing out how infrequently this length track has popped up in RB. The only compelling counter argument is "10 minutes is really not more than enough time". Please feel free to elaborate and maybe that will produce more worthwhile discussion than telling other members of the community that they are lazy.
You should close the thread, or let it drag further into the miasma, whichever you would prefer.

The only more-than-ten-minute song that I personally hoped to see on RBN is Albuquerque, but I still think that could be solved simply by speeding the song up slightly.
I'm not trying to martyr myself. I obviously can't win here, so what other action would you like me to take? What would satisfy you?
I still feel strongly that if 10+ minute songs belong in real life, and they certainly belong in mine, than they belong in this game. And there probably hundreds of RBN testers who would be more than willing to run those charts through their paces, because they're doing it for the love of Rock Band, the love of the community and the love of the music. One fifteen-minute song, or three five minutes songs - I really don't see either column as more deserving, because they're all equally deserving.
Obviously the ten or so people who posted on this thread cannot be convinced of that. As Miles Davis used to say, "Some people, if they don't know, you can't tell'em."
I'm not playing the martyr, I am literally surrendering. Is there another ending you would prefer?
Jeez, if you feel that strongly about getting songs over ten minutes in length, then use one of the other avenues for trying to get songs into the game. Use the Ultimate Setlist forum or the Request page or something. HMX is in a better position to getting extended length songs than RBN is.
Really, just close this thread before it gets any more petulant.
Name 5 10 minute songs that you would play on a regular basis.

There has to be some limit, and I'm sure if it was 20 or 30 minutes, people would list songs they want to play that are even longer.
