  • Toast says:

    This setlist is like if Indie had a baby with Pop-rock and then they just threw in some metal and classic rock for good measure. It’s very mediocre, and the “Pro” features are not that exciting. Sure they’re new, but do you expect the majority of the general populace that gets this game to also spend $150 on a guitar with only 17 frets? I have a bunch of friends who don’t play guitar at all and still have at least one instrument lying around in their house. The comparison between the easiest pro song on RB3 and the hardest song on GH:WoR is not even close to being true. Power chords and simple fret changes don’t compare to a wall of notes and alternate strumming that would take years to get to the level of being able to pass it. I can appreciate the effort put into Pro Mode, but in my opinion, it won’t fare compared to the normal modes. The Pro mode doesn’t specifically appeal to me because I already play guitar and I’d rather not play really, really simple songs compared to stuff that i like: Metal. The lack of metal is dissapointing, especially because one of my favorite metal bands, Dream Theater, has keyboards, harmonies (in some of their songs) and really, really tough songs. Meh.

    • skydog says:

      What’s funny is I’m opposite. I’m glad there’s less metal.. RB2 didn’t appeal to me whatsoever with how much metal was actually on that game.

    • Mcmax3000 says:

      I’m with skydog here. I’m also glad there’s less metal. I liked RB2’s setlist but I’d rather have less metal in the main setlist and save that for DLC where people that want it can get it and for someone like me who doesn’t like it, I can skip it.

      • RockBandAide says:

        I agree with both you. While metal is one of my favorite genres to listen to, it’s just not as fun to play in-game.

        Plus, with GH:WoR coming out soon, would people really want TWO games filled with metal?! If Rock Band 3 had been filled with metal, the same people complaining “list sucks, no metal” would instead be complaining that it’s “moar GH repeats.”

        • Croq says:


          • Game!Ov3r says:

            I like Metal just as much as the next guy, but I realy liked the feel of Band Hero, and this is starting to fall into that same feel. I really hated being stuck on Tour Mode having to play Visions and constantly getting 3-4 stars! I am pretty sure that Slipknot is going to be the Metal monster of this game.

    • Dark Fox says:

      I don’t think you understand how badly Octavarium needs to be in there. Unedited, I must add. I don’t care if they separate it into all 5 parts. I’ll play that shit as a 24 minute setlist that consists of really only one song. Do you agree?

    • Adam says:

      Dream Theater IS NOT Metal, they are definitely just prog rock. Guitars don’t determine the genre, the lyrically content and aggressiveness of the material determine the actual genre. Mike Portnoy just refers to it as metal because he writes the parts as metal.

      • Hines says:

        Lyrical content RARELY defines the genre.

      • Xzyliac says:

        Prog metal? That’s what I consider Dream Theater.

        Prog rock is more along the lines of Yes and Crimson King in my opinion. Dream Theater definitely plays a fine line and since prog metal is a very established genre. Just sayin’.

  • Jimmyinnernets says:

    Wow, Phish and Primus! Color me happy.

  • Aw says:

    Holy shit. I just got way more excited about RB3.

    Hopefully John Lennon DLC is on the way. “Oh Yoko” would be perfect for Rock Band.

  • chedita says:

    getting better with each leak slowly, but surely. I doubt this will all be on the final setlist since some songs weren’t released as dlc and had piano (have you ever seen the rain?).

    • Yankeesniper57 says:

      Sorry, but this setlist is probably final. But I still don’t get why the rush song has not been announced yet.

  • TheHypester says:

    We get John Lennon!? This is AMAZING news! Best rumor ever!

    • TheHypester says:

      Also! If this and other rumors prove true, it leave only _1_ song unknown from the RB disc.

  • Dark Fox says:

    Freebird. Absolute win.

  • T says:

    Free Bird!? YEAH! Also, interesting to see our first Live on-disc song in RB. Can’t wait!

  • Saphion says:

    Anyone from NeoGAF posting on here? Can they ask on my behalf, why a lot of people in the ‘Massive RB3 setlist leak’ thread keep saying ‘Too many songs from previous Rock Band games’ when not only is this not true, but practically all Rock Band songs are forward compatible anyway?

  • Finalizer says:

    Download for the video file that was removed from YT.

  • Steve C says:

    “HUGE Rock Band 3 Setlist Leak” – “… have come up with a MASSIVE list”

    am i blind? i don’t don’t see anything huge or massive here.

  • Kirksplosion says:

    Nice. Looks like you got some Kotaku coverage.

  • Tom Whitaker says:

    Spotify playlist for UK fans…

  • Daedalus40 says:

    I hope this is not true, because it’s a Horrible, Horrible setlist. Of the 83 songs total, I’m only looking forward to 3! Looks like Warriors of Rock is getting my money.

    • RockBandAide says:

      You forgot one more “horrible,” as in “This is a horrible attempt at trolling.” Best of luck in your future endeavors!

      • Daedalus40 says:

        Lol. I’m not trolling, I’m giving my honest opinion. Rock Band 1 had 4 songs I loved, and that was roughly half the size of Rock Band 3, Rock Band 2 had around 15+ of my favorites and it was well-balanced, best in any rhythm game. Rock Band 3 is a nightmare to my eyes.

        Again, if my opinion is the equivalent to trolling, then you’re just a Rock Band fanboy.

        • Kirksplosion says:

          The difference between just stating your opinion and trolling can be quite subtle.

          For example:

          Opinion: “I don’t like this setlist at all”
          Trolling: “This setlist is horrible. Not buying!”

        • Zomg bbq says:

          You have a very limited range of music then.

          What songs do you like from gh6? It might just confirm what I think.

          • Daedalus40 says:

            2112 – Rush
            Burn – Deep Purple (RB3 gets “Smoke on the Water”,overplayed, uninteresting and another repeat)
            Burnin’ for You – Blue Oyster Cult
            Call Me the Breeze – Lynyrd Skynyrd (I’ve played Free Bird enough)
            Children of the Grave – Black Sabbath
            Dance, Dance – Fall Out Boy (guilty pleasure really)
            Indians – Anthrax (And HMX gets the repeat)
            Money for Nothing – Dire Straits (Walk of Life is okay, but I like this far better)
            There’s No Secrets This Year – Silversun Pickups
            Unskinny Bop – Poison
            Wish – Nine Inch Nails

            Everybody Wants to Rule the World – Tears for Fears
            I Feel Good – James Brown (Didn’t see it the first time on the list)
            Low Rider – War
            Rock Lobster – B-52s

          • RockBandAide says:

            “Unskinny Bop?!” I definitely like Poision more than the next person, but if you think Rock Band 3’s setlist is “horrible,” you gave yourself away by stating your preference for this song. Like I said, I love Poison, but you’re going to lose a lot of street cred for admitting that. I’ll see you in line on October 26th! ;)

        • RockBandAide says:

          “…then you’re just a Rock Band fanboy…” You noticed the name of the site, right? ;)

          Also, I support trolls on the site here. Each time they come back to reply, they drive the hit count up. So thanks!

          • Saphion says:

            Heh, that guy just doesn’t learn, does he?

          • skydog says:

            Hahaha :)

            Oh.. and this dude is worse than me and I’m kidding when i troll O.O
            He beat me!!! :'(!!!

            Really those songs you selected from Gh6 are what’s “Horrible”… because

            A) You’ll be looking at World At Warcraft Characters
            B) Most likely they’ll go back to overcharting
            C) No ones going to buy GH except you fanboys. :)

          • Saphion says:

            Half the reason I visit this site is to watch RockBandAide slap the trolls! Hilarious stuff.

        • Saphion says:

          If only Rock Band has a near endless store filled with downloadable tracks…!

          • Saphion says:

            Oops, that should have read ‘had’. Not ‘has’. Derp.

          • Daedalus40 says:

            Already picked out what I wanted from the store, thanks for offering.

          • skydog says:

            Oh and you can enjoy your 200 music store songs that suck…
            A) Selena Gomez
            B) Miley Cyrus
            C) That horrific Kiss Pack you guys got…

            Man GH is just HORRIBLE and so are the fanboys.

          • TuleRune says:

            Thats funny Skydog, beacause GH had one Miley Cyrus song and you had a 5-pack including the song we got anyway! The Kiss pack wasn’t horrific either. Lick it Up is undoubtedly one of their most famous tracks, I Was Made for Lovin’ You was pretty famous too and they probably chose Modern day Delilah to treat fans to something new. And we only got 1 Selena Gomez song too. Go and shred to Spongebob, Lawl.

          • skydog says:

            Who said I shred?
            Hmm.. interesting.
            I will enjoy my 1,500 compared to your 200 piece of shits.

          • Daedalus40 says:

            And they said I was trolling? You don’t even know what music I bought. Pathetic skydog, pathetic.

          • Saphion says:

            No, I believe Skydog was referring to the low selection of songs in the Guitar Hero store compared to the massive amount in the Rock Band equivalent.

  • Saphion says:

    If anyone buys one plastic-toy instrument over another because of the setlist, then they’re buying it for the wrong reason. Especially as Rock Band has so much DLC… it’s just a dumb argument to have.

    Really, people will buy WoR over this because of the setlist? They’re completely ignoring the massive engine upgrade, countless improvements and streamlining of the entire genre, AND 1000+ DLC because of the on-disc songs (which everyone gets sick of anyway).

    I can’t fathom it.

    • Daedalus40 says:

      I don’t need pro-mode, I play a real guitar, and if I wanted to play a song for real, I would pick up my real guitar and go look for tabs on my computer. Keyboards don’t look the slightest bit interesting. I just want to play the game just for what it was meant to be, a game. At least Guitar Hero is consistent.

      And don’t use the DLC excuse, I’ve said I picked what I’ve wanted, I have 200 DLC from the game.

      • Saphion says:

        So, you think keyboards and Pro Guitar are the only upgrades, huh?

      • Saphion says:

        Also, I play guitar, and still fully intend to get heavily into Pro Guitar. I don’t understand this mentality. Why do people think Pro Guitar is intended only to teach people to play guitar?

      • skydog says:

        I don’t see how you say GH6 is better…

        A) It’s the same game
        B) it’s like putting Barbies in a game (world of warcraft creatures.. really?)
        C) The setlist will get old on GH6 and you won’t have anything to buy in the store.

        ENJOY! :)

      • Maztuhmind says:

        lol @ guitar hero being consistent.

    • Saphion says:

      The reviews will reflect this.

  • D00k13 says:

    ABSOLUTELY EPIC! Imagine (WHOOOO!) Smoke on the Water! Free Bird! YEAH!

  • Hanzo says:

    Aha! I new Heart of Glass was en-route. Called that (told ya RBA! via Twitter). Good to see Radar Love on there as well, that should have been a staple Rock Band song from a long way back. Also nice to see Misery Business finally made its way in. Now I don’t feel bad about getting rid of my (used) GH:WT disc.

  • TuleRune says:

    Just like to point out how hypocritical Rock Band/Harmonix are. They said GH DLC has AORB right? Well…
    * Lynyrd Skynyrd – Free Bird
    * Faith No More – Midlife Crisis
    * Paramore – Misery Business
    * Queens of the Stone Age – No One Knows
    * At the Drive-In – One Armed Scissor
    * Elton John – Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)
    * Deep Purple – Smoke on the Water
    are AOGH.

    Seriously, the only good originals are Midlife Crisis, Jerry Was a Race Car Driver, Good Vibrations (and even thats a live version, when there are masters about anyway) and Imagine. I hate them for putting Imagine in there though, because it’s way to meaningful.

    P.S. I think they have just gone through the Rolling Stone Top 500 Songs. Imagine AND Good Vibrations. I won’t be surprised if Johnny B. Goode and Smells Like Teens Spirit are in it)

    P.S.2. Honestly, have none of you seen the GH:WoR setlist. I’ll list out the non-metal songs:
    2112, Again, Aqualung, Been Caught Stealing, Black Rain, Bohemian Rhapsody, Burn, Burnin’ for You, Calling, Cherry Bomb, Cryin, Dance Dance, Dancing Through Sunday, Deadfall, Fascination Street, Feel Good Drag, Feels Like the First Time, Fortunate Son, Free Ride, Get Free, Ghost, Graduate, How You Remind Me, I Know What I Am, I’m Not Okay (I Promise), Interstate Love Song, It’s Only Another Parsec…, Lasso, Listen to her Heart, Losing my Religion, Love Gun, Lunatic Fringe, Machinehead, Modern Day Cowboy, Motivation, Move it on Over, No More Mr. Nice Guy, No Way Back, The Outsider, Pour Some Sugar on Me, Re-Ignition, Renegade, (You Can Still) Rock in America, Rockin’ in the Free World, Savior, Scumbag Blues, Self Esteem, Seven Nation Army, Sharp Dressed Man, Slow Hands, Stray Cat Blues, Suffocated, Theme from Spider-Man, There’s No Secrets This Year, Tick Tick Boom, Tones of Home, Unskinny Bop, Uprising, What Do I Get.
    Yep, definitely ALL Metal. Morons.

    • RockBandAide says:

      How many of those GH repeats feature keyboards and real guitars?

    • Fleat says:

      RBA makes a good point. I love certain selections from the RB3 set, but it overall the GH6 list is a little better. I would probably buy GH if it weren’t for pro drums, keys, and all the future dlc to come along with RB.

    • Saphion says:

      Just to confirm that TuleRune is a troll; in a previous comment he said “Thats funny Skydog, beacause GH had one Miley Cyrus song and you had a 5-pack including the song we got anyway!”. Notice how he said ‘we’.

      I fail to see how more choice is a bad thing.

      • Saphion says:

        Not that this wasn’t blatantly obvious anyway, mind.

      • TuleRune says:

        1) Not everyone has internet to get DLC.
        2) Nobody likes every single song released as DLC (unless you are a mega troll)
        3) RBN is (quite) exclusive to Xbox, showing that Harmonix are goody-goody with Microsoft (Dance Central being another example)
        4) They hate wii users. No RBN or exporting? At least GH gives as much as possible (the only thing not avaliable is free dlc and that’s Nintendo).
        5) More choice is a bad thing because some people have less money so if they like more-songs-than-affordable they are just gonna feel disappointed.
        6) I do enjoy Rock Band. I have 1, 2, Lego and 2 Track Packs (I even preferred Lego to Band Hero). I just really dislike the constant abuse of the GH fans on everything that is GH. All you see now is “Rock Band 3 has keyboards and real guitar so its better”.

        • RockBandAide says:

          …so you come on a pro-Rock Band site (not an Anti-Guitar Hero site) to bash it? Um… OK.

          • TuleRune says:

            In another post I praised Rock Band 1 + 2. They both had extremely good setlists. I even shown my love for Lego over Band Hero. I seriously dislike the setlist of Rock Band 3. Pro Mode looks like an absolute mess. Keys are a great addition, but they are missing out on keyboard pioneers like Erasure, Kraftwerk (Tour de France ftw on drums), Pet Shop Boys, Yazoo. Heck, even Jean Michel Jarre!

        • Tim says:

          “5) More choice is a bad thing because some people have less money so if they like more-songs-than-affordable they are just gonna feel disappointed.”

          Lol! Yes, in video games (and in real life) companies should limit their available products because poor people might feel slighted.

  • this guy says:

    Imagine. Wow. Great to see we’re getting an overindulgent piece of shit on-disc rather than a good song. I mean, I know they’re pushing the keyboard, but, shit, are they even thinking about the other instruments?

    • this guy says:

      Oh, and, I should add, I’m a huge Beatles fan. However, I don’t follow everything every Beatle did mindlessly. Lennon became an overindulgent ass during Sgt. Pepper, and Revolution was him prepping for Imagine, the king of overindulgent “masterpieces”. Can’t say I have a problem with Revolution 9, though. That was kind of brilliant.

    • Stuff says:

      Ever heard of an “easy song”?

      P.S. Don’t care

  • ForeverBeatles says:

    @this guy

  • ChiefSlayer says:

    I think this setlist sucks too. But i think all the setlists kinda suck. In every game theres usually only less than 5 songs i like. Theres a few i will love to have with rock band like free bird ( pro mode guitar will be awesome). Theres 3 songs i like from this list, and looking at the grand master list, theres about 10 songs i like, including whatever the rush song is because i love rush. In comparison, theres 11 songs i like out of the fully revealed gh6 setlist. about 7 of those songs i already have on rock band. The rest are not extremely interesting. I wish there was some new metallica, instead of the dumb performencce from the rock and roll hall of fame ( sorry not that they preformed poorly, but the fucking people were sitting down and watching, and just not responding at all.. idiots) There is only 1 erason i consider buying or at least renting gh6 and that of course is only because of 2112. I dont know why that piece of shit game series that just wants to milk the shit out of the whole industry always gets so many good bands and songs. If only they know the fans love rock band way more. I doubt ill buy it right away if anything, because within months its going to drop to 20$ just like every other gh game. (blocbuster selling gh aerosmith for 2$…)

  • David says:

    If we get The Smiths on disk, does that mean we’ll get more songs as DLC?
    I would absolutely love that <3

  • Yankeesniper57 says:

    i always thought “radar love” was “red hot love”

  • Herbert says:

    guitar hero warriors of rock better be happy they are getting themselves compared aggressively to rock band 3. in stark contrast there is near to zero awareness of another rhythm contender which is power gig: rise of the sixstring.

    in my opinion there is little to compare, because every company is different, have different design and working philosophies and their products (their games) reflect that. from getting guitar hero 1, 2 and rock band 1 and comparing with guitar hero world tour onwards, i have always felt that harmonix understands and does music better. guitar hero 3 is fun, to be sure, but i’m getting rock band 3 for its design in allowing gamers, who also love music, to be more deeply connected to the music.

  • Herbert says:

    i assume that most people are resource-pressed and are constrained and practise economics, so at least in the near future only one game will be bought.

    those who choose guitar hero warriors of rock are not wrong, either, because the emphasis of the game seems to be frantic shredding, which can be exhilarating, and role-playing elements such as the incremental stat boosts and some modifications of star power usage and scoring. and of course, in GH the guitar is centrestage.

    erm … i struggle to find anyone who are well-informed about these 3 games to favour power gig the most.

  • Stephen says:

    If anyone is following Rock Band on facebook, they posted a nice official response about the leaked setlist.

  • woo says:

    Well… there’s so much crap in there.

    And, Harmonix always has been talking crap about Guitar Hero having songs they already had (just like some weeks ago in twitter) and now this setlist (and some of the already announced) is full of songs already used in Guitar Hero.

    A little hypocritical, I think.

  • Chucklestyle says:

    Some of these songs were no brainers, especially considering the pro mode and keyboard enhancements. It’s a give and take with any of these games. For every “Midlife Crisis” there’s a “Bohemian Rhapsody”. (Yes I was intentionally ambiguous with that statement.)

    I’ll never understand the GH vs. RB noise… I guess people just like to feel smarter or better than someone else for buying something different. All I know is I’ve made my choice already, and if the other games can make a compelling argument for me to scoop up their game as well, then I will vote with my money. Until then, RB3 is the most exciting rhythm game on the horizon for a long time.

  • Herbert says:

    regarding repeating songs across games, i’m glad that many of these songs repeated are in the guitar hero 1 and 2, not 3 and after. anyway it’s no crime to repeat songs, the games rock band and guitar hero are now different, and now with the latest incarnations the engines are even more different. so having the same songs on two different games is not a problem.

    regarding the issue of having very little ‘nice’ or ‘good’ songs on either rock band or guitar hero, considering some of the strict tastes of comments or gamers out there, i believe part of the experience of getting a music rhythm game is to explore and learn about new songs. i remember getting my first guitar hero or rock band games and only knowing barely a handful of songs at first, but by the time i’ve finished working through the game i found that many of the songs are quite likable and taken overall, they reflect a wide variety of musical styles. at the end of every game i just felt that my music exposure just increased bit by bit. and it’s going to increase even more when i get and play rock band 3.

    i can’t speak for others but for me i’m going to put down my money on rock band 3 and give its gameplay and setlist a chance. if i turn out to be wrong, and it’s a highly personal judgement too, then at least the money was mine, not yours!

  • Scone527 says:

    I think the setlist looks pretty solid. I’m especially pumped for “Llama”, as I’m a huge Phish fan.

  • xerrt says:

    so are we getting a rush song?subdivisions or new world man would kick ass for rb3 pro mode

  • HiHowAreYou says:

    I’m disapointed in the new setlist. The only thing that appeals to me is paramore. Usually I can find like 20 songs that like. I wish they would put on some Three Days Grace.

  • FrankDelirium says:

    This will definitely be earning my money. I used to like GH (I had GH3, GHWT, and GH5). The only thing that had be for GHWT was two Ozzy songs and two Hendrix songs. And the only thing that had be set for GH5 was the extensive music creator (which wasn’t that good in the end unless you are a master) and two Tom Petty songs. And GH3: I was just bored. So in November of 09, I got RB2 because of the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers pack (sorry, I am f*****g crazy for them).

    I realized in Guitar Hero games that I only liked about 10 of their songs, while in Rock Band 2, I liked twenty. In Rock Band 3, I LOVE about half of them. The only bad part is that it’s stuffed to the gills with a lot of fluff I don’t really like… I think GH:WoR is more consistent (it has Tom Petty AND Aerosmith [my two favorites]) and a whole bunch of hard rock tunes.

    To be honest, I like GH:WoR’s list a LITTLE bit better. But um, GH fanboys can have fun with their plastic buttons. Cause RB3 has Tom Petty AND a real guitar. I’m amazed.

  • FrankDelirium says:

    ALSO. ENOUGH SLIPKNOT. I HATE SLIPKNOT. I want to feed Slipknot and Avenged Sevenfold and A Day To Remember to Cradle of Filth. We need some CoF in RB.

  • Obelisk362 says:

    I welcome this new kind of Game. I think Harmonix summed it up when they said there’s been a ‘staleness in the music game genre’ and so with a new set of features, which look awesome if you’re willing to shed the cash, we can look to this as the stepping stone to better games in the future.

    Also with the changes, a change in genre to what I’d call more ‘mainstream’ and well known songs (Well to me anyway) is what they should be doing. I feel that the disc itself should contain songs for loads of people and the more specialist songs to upcoming bands or not such popular genres are there in the DLC and RBN. Plus this is helped by what may only appear as a small compromise for all types of music, it provides a basis to add.

    In my opinion this is much better for the Music game genre and I welcome change and CAN’T WAIT for the game to be released :)

      I agree that this is going to be an extremely good game, and I simply can’t wait for this game either… But what I think has gone wrong with this setlist, is that the introduction to keyboard has made the setlist so specified on exactly that instrument, that the new pro guitar and drums have almost been forgotten in the midst of the pop-hell… I definately prefer the GH6 setlist, since it’s far more “rock”, and far less “pop”, because I really don’t get as big a thrill from the (kinda) boring and easy mainstream music as i do from the (IMO) more exciting and challenging rock music… I also like the guitar-centred attitude of GH, but I’m still looking more forward to RB3 because it’s way more innovative, and as mentioned many times earlier has good DLC to spice up the setlist :)

      What I hope for this game is that all of the earlier content is upgradeable to the new pro-instruments. Can’t wait!:D

    George Michael appears as though he night go down (lol!) because of driving about stoned. Hey, is this a threat or a promise? It’d be like putting most men in a harem! Lol!

    Roundabout is an amazing and perfect choice.

    other than that and a few others this set list reeks of diarrhea.

    “Before I forget”? wtf man, that song was in gh3 and Slipknot is horrid.
    “Beast and the Harlot”? A7X sucks and that song was in GH2, yeah it was a cover of it but who cares.
    “Caught in a Mosh”? okay song from an okay band but it was in gh rock the eighties
    “Free Bird”? amazing song, but too bad it was already in GH2.
    Walk of Life? it should be known that dire straights only ever released one great song and that song is Sultans of Swing, why pick this horribly obnoxious pop song over the greatness of SoS. oh i know why it was picked.. it has keyboard!

    why not included some real metal bands like emperor, death, opeth, megadeth, cynic, atheist, nevermore, enslaved… and so on. Oh that would actually please their metal fanbase, they can’t do that. a lot of metal has keyboard so it is fitting, how they failed to include Dream Theater in this is beyond me, it’s frustrating and stupid. I saw some people up top say metal doesn’t translate well and isn’t fun but I completely disagree, I’ve always found the metal songs the most fun to play since they are fast and challenging. Hanger 18 was the most fun song to play on gh2 and i’ve yet to see another song that is as fun in a rhythm game, panic attack and painkiller were both great fun on rb2 but not quite as fun.

    prog is the perfect genre for this game but I only see Yes represented, this is a huge failing on the part of the creators.

    guitar hero has 2112, that song alone beats this entire game. I’m no GH fanboy because I found RB2 to be way better than gh world tours set list.

    lol yay a proghead. I want me all the stuff you suggested but also between the buried in because imo they are the 2nd best prog band based on talent next to dream theater but their songs are harder to play because I just learned obfuscation by btbam and octavarium by dt. obfuscation to my surprise was much harder

  • Marc says:

    I was really against this at first (I love metal… although the metal choices in RB2 were, for the most part, really bad). But having listened to all the songs, there are some serious gems, and I’m really excited to get my hands on this.
