I'd quite like to see "No One Knows" as well. I remember struggling to 5-star it on Medium in the original Guitar Hero!

Harmonix really should try to get some more QotSA songs in Rock Band, especially from Songs for the Deaf and Lullabies to Paralyse.

Agreed on Maps being a tit-annoying song. But I'll still play it. But a track I actually despise? That Black Hole Sun one. Or whatever it is. The Soundgarden track. Before that song, I never thought anything conceivable by man could be so soul-suckingly dull.

Aneurin, you're dead to me.

Black Hole Sun is an amazing song.

The songs I hate playing in Rock Band:

"Dead on Arrival"
"I Think I'm Paranoid"
"Say It Ain't So"
"Should I Stay or Should I Go?"
"When You Were Young"
"Won't Get Fooled Again"

Special mention goes to GG&HT, but only because I'm rubbish at it on Expert guitar. :cry:

Wahey, you've just reminded me. I've more or less mastered the sliding back/forth solo bits now. If I have the time, I'll bother you for a challenge a bit later tonight.

Won't Get Fooled Again is the worst song on Rock Band.

That keyboard (?) solo is the most pissing annoying thing ever.

Not to mention the fact that the song lasts an absolute eternity and isn't any good.

I could've went the rest of my life believing that everyone loved Maps just as much as I do, and I would've been happy. It's just such a pretty song. You're both really terrible people, probably sex offenders as well. Stop it.

Stare directly at the sun. Good for you. Vitamin D.

I love Soundgarden but it was a crap choice of song for rockband, it's just dull to play.


I'm stuck on Vaseline on hard drums and have been for ages, I just can't get enough play time on drums to improve either. :cry:

Another vote for "No One Knows", my very first hurdle in Guitar Hero. It took me an embarrassing length of time to pass on medium. Would also like to see "Crossroads" taken over from the first game too, by far my favourite song in the game.

I'd have preferred Rusty Cage by Soundgarden but Black Hole Sun is fun to play on expert.

And instead of Crossroads, I'd have Sunshine of Your Love, that was amazing in GH3.

RE: liking Maps - Why though? Seriously - I physically, mentally and emotionally cannot understand why anyone would like that tune. And usually I'm quite tolerant with other people's tastes and like variety in my genres, but with that song I have a complete block.

The lyrics are repetitive ("he don't love you like I love you, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah he don't love you like I love you" ad infinitum) and the song doesn't go anywhere at all. Seriously. Even Brian Eno's Apollo's and Atmospheres had more of a rockin' edge to it than this song. It doesn't even have the saving grace of being more interesting in RB on the Expert level like some of the slower songs in the pack (Black Hole Sun definitely being one of them - it's a brilliant song, but on the earlier difficulty levels it's pointless).

Oh, and for My Human, as I can spot a Morrisism a mile away...

I finally got round to buying this the other day! Expert Guitar is as expected, considering I'm an old hand at the Hero games, it isn't too bad.

Drums on the other hand, I can pass Hard easily but some of the expert rhythms are absolute killers! Managed to 5 star Hysteria on Expert though, that's me happy. Me and my Girlfriend are enjoying playing Band World Tour with me on Drums (Hard) and her on Guitar (Hard).

Downloaded Wolfmother: Joker and the Thief and SOAD: B.Y.O.B with some spare points I had as well.

I'd be grateful for any Cream to be honest. Shocking that they haven't appeared yet when more than a few people at Harmonix are big fans.

Organ, actually. :P

But I agree with you, though. I'm glad they cut most of it out when singing the song solo.

Did anyone else fail the first time they did Brainpower on expert guitar? That mental bit came out of nowhere...
