Thread: Legendary Classic Rock Band Coming Soon! | Forums

    I kinda hope it's ELO. I would call them my guilty pleasure band. Seriously is it possible to listen to Mr. Blue Sky and not have a smile on your face?

    Bands that I can think of that fit this criteria:
    Black Sabbath
    The Who
    CCR
    AC/DC
    Aerosmith
    Van Halen (crossing my fingers!)
    The Eagles
    Queen
    Pink Floyd
    ZZ Top
    The Doors
    Led Zepplin (unlikely unless Jimmy Page has had a change of heart regarding music games)
    Jimi Hendrix Experience (unlikely because of tuning)
    The Beatles (unlikely because of cost)
    Good list, but I would add 'unlikely' next to AC/DC and Pink Floyd as well.

    AC/DC doesn't like to release individual songs so unless it's a full album release, they're out.
    Pink Floyd is similarly grumpy about their music being split up into separate tracks and have no history of collaboration with a game.

    I guess we'll know in a little over 7 hours.....

    You need to add a band to the list

    KISS

    whom also has a promo contract with Gibson Guitar, who in turn has a promo deal with Rocksmith

    Extremely speculative oddsmaking on the announcement...What is the best bet?

    Black Sabbath: 3 to 1
    The Who: 3 to 1
    KISS: 4 to 1
    Queen: 4 to 1
    AC/DC: 5 to 1
    Aerosmith: 5 to 1
    Van Halen: 10 to 1
    Led Zep: 25 to 1
    Pink Floyd: 30 to 1
    Beatles: 50 to 1

    I'd be happy with any of these.

    What about Grateful Dead? They're sort of legendary, their sound is arguably "classic rock" and they already have a lot of songs in Rock Band. Not to mention that Jerry Garcia was a beastly guitar player.

    Because both of them have huge catalogs, are easy to license (At least, RB and GH have tons of their songs) and they are definitely VERY classic rock. The only other one that I would put at the same odds would be Queen. Otherwise, RS will have pulled a major coup by getting one of the ones that we think may have exclusivity agreements, but don't, or someone who has been steadfast against having their stuff in music games, period (ZZ Top, Led Zep, Pink Floyd)... I just don't think that's happened.

    I'll be holding my breath till this evening.

    Can we name a drink for each top bet band? Such as whiskey (in the jar o) for Metallica for a toast after the announcement?
