My favorite genres of music aren't based upon the most musically talented artists. Thus stuff i'd like to play in RB/GH wouldn't fit well because they aren't technically difficult usually.

I want more punk, all varieties, except shit made past 1995 pretending to be punk. Stooges, Rocket from the Tombs, Misfits, Sex Pistols, Clash, Joy Division, Buzzcocks, Fugazi, maybe even get into the punk bands turned New Wave: Television, Misson of Burma, etc.

I also want some post-rock. Mogwai, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Silver Mt. Zion, Explosions in the Sky, Mono.

Then random stuff like Appleseed Cast, 65daysofstatic, Amusement Parks on Fire, David Bowie, Dinosaur Jr.,Procol Harum, and the Biggest: Pavement.

If you don't know who 90% of these people are, don't be surprised.

I think more artists are going to follow 0(+>'s lead and not release their music for these games.

I disagree. I mean if McCartney is on the wagon, that says something. There will always be some artists that are opposed to it for whatever reasons but I think the majority see it not only as another income stream, but an excellent way to expose their music to new audiences.

That's part of his problem with it. He does not want to engage in shameless self-promotion in a way which encourages kids not to learn to actually play the guitar.

Not only is that completely wrong it is ignorant. These music games do encourage people to learn to play. There are reports like these (link below) and I have seen it and experienced it myself first hand. No you won't learn to play guitar from Rock Band but you will learn rhythm, learn to listen to music differently and most of all be inspired to actually learn to play a real guitar because you'll want to play it for real, not just clacking away on a plastic controller.

Singing will not help you train your voice properly but, again, it will help you with some of the nuances of timing and pitch, much better than just doing it by yourself in the shower anyways.

Now as for drums... THAT's another story. Games like Rock Band go beyond leaps and bounds to getting people started on the basics of playing the drums. My nephew for example, taught himself to play drums, Rock Band being a major factor in that, and he is now an effin sweet drummer and plays in a real band. The kid blows me away at how good of a drummer he is. It is absolutely amazing.

So that argument you mentioned is total BS imo. I think these games have done more for inspiring budding musicians than anything else. Look at our school systems. Here anyways arts and particularly music programs are being hacked and chopped away to extinction due to budget cuts. Games like RB are filling the void and doing a hell of a job too.

To the current topic, I don't know if it's encouraged or not to view yourself as a musical expert after playing Guitar Hero/Rock Band/whatever (I don't own any of these games, and I've only played Guitar Hero a couple of times), but it's incredibly irritating when someone does that. I know someone who is a huge Guitar Hero fan, and he considers it the same as a real guitar. He considers himself to be a masterful guitarist, as he has played through Guitar Hero on all difficulty levels. This makes me want to rewire his controller.

To the original topic:
Bananaphone.

I agree, i love to listen to music and always have. I first got guitar hero 2 for the 360, and it got me interested in music in a way id never thought i could. I got rockband on the day it was released, and when i sat down to play the drums, that was the most fun i have had in a long long time. If i had the time, id consider taking either drumming lessons or guitar lessions. But at age 37, i guess im a little too late, so rockband is my release.

I believe that is exactly what the artist formerly known as 0(+> is objecting to and why we will not be seeing any of his songs in these games.

Lol Prince has got a bad attitude about everything and anything. That's ok I can do without Little Red Corvette and Let's Get Crazy in my RB. What I would LOVE to see is:

Roundabout - Yes
