Hey Harmonix. We need to talk. I'm pretty disappointed in you.
I sent an e-mail to the manager of one of my favorite bands, Mindless Self Indulgence. I asked if they had considered getting some MSI songs in Rock Band.
Here's the response I got this morning:
"We'd love to but have not been asked by Rock Band to do so."
So here's a band - a rock band with several Billboard #1 singles - where we have clear proof that the band is ready and willing to get some songs into Rock Band, but they have not been approached at all by HMX/MTV. Now, I understand that there are a ton of bands out there to consider...but when we're getting additional tracks from bands that have already had several tracks on discs and as DLC already, this makes me sad.
So, my dear Harmonix: make this happen.
Here's MSI's contact page: http://www.mindlessselfindulgence.com/contact.html
Their manager's name is James Galus (with DAMN! Management), and his e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org
