I love the RBN for artists HMX refuses or just doesn't care to add. it opened the door for a lot of my fave bands to release songs (Clutch, Seether, Nonpoint, ect.)
And aside from all the awesome, there's a few issues I've decided bother me.
1. Contacting bands that no longer exist.
There's a lot of great bands out there who just simply aren't possible to contact for the average joe.
I love bands that HMX will most likely never add like Stereomud, 8 Days Gone, Apartment 26, Bloodsimple, Spineshank, ect.
How do you contact bands that either don't have contact info or only have an old outdated myspace pages that no longer get updates?
2. non-USA bands.
GH seemed to have no issue with foreign bands, why is it that HMX doesn't add almost ever? they either aren't able to access the RBN tools or the fees make it not worth it.
Will we ever see bands like In Flames, Backyard Babies, Rock n Roll Soldiers. ect.?
3. the lack of HMX support...
Well, this one is more of a gripe... with the RBN in existence, HMX is less willing to stick their neck out and add indie music or even a lot of other mainstream music they just don't like... which leads to a lot of iffy music being pumped into the game... officially by HMX... purely for revenue... like Lady Gaga... and Snoop Dog... (and coldplay *gags*)
well, there you have my top 3 issues...
feel free to now attack me with fanatical fanboy support of how perfect RB is...
