I thought it might be interesting to hear what people think about the music of the 'other generations' in Rock Band. Personally, I grew up listening to Nirvana, Radiohead and so on, and I still listen to a lot of music today so I'm familiar with most of the 00s bands in there. But I've been having a lot of fun hearing the older songs in the game - stuff like Foreplay / Long Time and Gimme Shelter are great great rock songs. I do listen to older stuff but it's mostly more obscure than that - most of the 70s bands in Rock Band are ones I haven't listened to before.
What's everyone else's take? For the younger people, what do you think of the 60s-70s stuff in RB? For the older people, what do you make of the 90s-00s stuff? How do bands like Pixies and Queens Of The Stone Age sound compared to the stuff you know inside out?
Be interesting to hear everyone's take.
edit: placed this here rather than history of rock because it's really supposed to be about *the songs in the game*. If you want to go for a broader Decade X vs. Decade Y comparison, please start a thread in History of Rock.
