As you know, Harmonix and MTV release a new pack of songs as Downloadable Content for Rock Band every week. Sometimes it seems like a random set of singles. Other times they are themed around band or sub-genre.
However, they can’t get every great song into the game due to availability, price of licensing or the time to get it into the game.
It’s really hard to narrow down to just 3 choices a week, but here’s what we want in Rock Band next week:
THE GUITAR SOLO PACK
We know playing the drums and singing vocals are amazing in their own right, but the roots of the game were built on the ‘ol six string and we want to so some classics that represent the very best of the guitar solo.
The Eagles - Hotel California
A nice laid back song that progressively builds to one of the greatest guitar solos of all time. Bonus points for good vocals and drums.
Cream – Crossroads
A great main riff with an amazing solo makes for a perfect song we’d like to see in Rock Band. The drummer gets to stay busy, too.
Jimi Hendrix – All Along the Watchtower
Any Hendrix would be amazing, but this song would definitely rock the hell out of the solos. Not the mention the fact that the drums & vocals stand out as well. We’re saving Purple Haze for our “Misheard Lyrics Pack”.
Led Zeppelin – Stairway to Heaven
If only to completely annoy the drummer while he waits over 4 minutes for his first note to play. The solo is definitely one of the most powerful in rock, but are you willing to wait about 6 minutes to get to it?
As much as we'd love these songs in the game, this list does NOT represent any inside information about the forthcoming DLC for Rock Band, and is just a wish list.
