Oh, and the Xbox 360 Rock Band Wireless Fender Wooden Stratocaster Replica by Mad Catz is the Deal of the Day, priced at $99.99.



Wish I could get this, but will have to pass.

Trying to burn through them before the new guitars hit. To reiterate, if you have no interest in the Pro guitars, the Madcatz one is the best fake guitar out there. I wouldn't trade mine for anything. The Gibson and Strat truly feel like Playskool toys next to this thing.

+1 I've only had mine for a week or two and I've only used it a few times, but damn if it isn't incredible.

I thought you passed on it in favor of the Pro guitars.

Nope. I will get one eventually, but I needed another wireless guitar and my Les Paul won't last forever and I wanted to transition to RB hardware and I wanted something shiny.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

So I was listening to the Grooveshark playlist yesterday, and while the setlist is amazing, I'm sorely disappointed in the lack of Billy Joel and Meat Loaf. I thought those two would be shoe-ins. Plus, a while back, didn't a HMX developer let it slip that Joel was already in?

So the Christian rap song isn't playable in Lego RB? That kind of cracks me up.

I'm happy to have Eels, but I hope we get a few others from the first couple albums at least down the road. Hells yeah on the Eagles of Death Metal!

I'm just still loving that apparently Goodbye Yellow Brick Road will be in the game. It's always awesome to see your all time favorite song in one of these games. Actually between that and BohRhap I got them both covered.

KMFDM for me, and I'm betting the wife will want Blondie. Another (older, but remastered, I guess) Inkubus Sukkubus song came out on RBN, need to pick that one up. Still waiting for GWAR

Excellent news! Never thought we'd see Decemberists in the game! And Bulletproof FTW!

Holy crap! "Jesus Freak"! Man, that takes me back. I may have to pick it up just for nostalgia's sake.

Great list. I wish we'd get a few more of these crazy mix-tape DLC offerings.

With dc Talk, we really need some Jars of Clay (Flood) and, in the same spiritual vein though not necessarily Christian, it's about time for Live.

Good call. I'd prefer The Beauty of Grey anyway probably. (And all the non-Live fans don't even understand how fucking awesome this exchange is.)

The Beauty of Grey is easily my favorite track off of Mental Jewerly.
