There have been many threads about this but none have really taken off, so I figured it was time to start an official thread in honor of this one simple Rock Band truth:
Modest Mouse needs to be added as DLC!
Seriously, if I was a HMX developer and starting a tracklist from scratch, Modest Mouse would without question be my first choice of bands from '00's. They're not even my favorite band or anything (although I do love their music), they are just simply perfect for the game.
The most clear testament to how great they are for Rock Band is that diehard fans will always request different songs. Why? Because so many of them work for the game.
If most bands have five or six great songs for Rock Band, Modest Mouse literally has five or six ALBUMS. Their guitar riffs are catching, their songs have phenomenal vocal melodies and their drums parts are great. Always.
Not to mention their last two albums have been platinum hits in the US and both "Dashboard" and "Float On" were huge radio hits (please don't turn this into an anti-new stuff thread, as the music is still great regardless of the stardom).
All that said, I'll start it off with some of my choices (excluding the obvious Dashboard, Float On and Ocean Breathes Salty):
Paper Thin Walls
3rd Planet / Gravity Rides Everything (both are slow and not ideal, but what a great start to a GREAT album)
Never Ending Math Equation
Talking **** about a Beautiful Sunset
Lounge (Closing Time)
If you agree with me and think Modest Mouse would be perfect for Rock Band, please join the thread and voice your opinion!
