Stuff I'd Like To See As Rock Band Dlc

Regardless of what anyone says, the Rock Band series is fun. But it lacks enough metal. The Iron Maiden package was a step in the right direction, but there are songs that are desperately needed that we haven't gotten yet.
1Volbeat
Back to Prom

Yeah, it's not one of their more recognized songs, but it gets a spot on this list because it's a fantastic party song. I once had it stuck in my head for three days straight. It's also short enough to not become a problem if you and your friends have been drinking (and let's face it, you probably have).
2Megadeth
Headcrusher

Endgame was awesome. If you disagree with me, you can stick your junk in a garbage disposal. For sheer balls-to-the-wall metal, it doesn't get much better than this. Headcrusher would be a fantastic addition to the game.
3Slough Feg
High Passage/Low Passage

Harmonix do their best to give some stage time to worthy bands that don't get enough press, so I nominate Slough Feg for some DLC love. High Passage/Low Passage in particular is one of their best songs and makes a good intro to their music for a newbie.
4Iced Earth
The Dragon's Child

Horror Show was when Iced Earth had their tightest line-up and Jon Schaffer still knew how to write a good song. The signature galloping riffs, Richard's characteristically great drumming, and Matt's range would all make this song in particular a fun challenge to play. Runner-up off the album would be Frankenstein for those who like that mid-tempo groove better.
5Edguy
Rocket Ride

Edguy have lately been straddling the line between power metal and hard rock, but they've stuck true to their determination to experiment. The title track off of Rocket Ride is another one of their great roof-raising songs.
6Sabaton
Primo Victoria

Sabaton lately have been a bit hit-and-miss since Joakim doesn't have much variation in his vocal melodies, but Primo Victoria was a solid album all around. The Wagnerian drama of the title track begs for DLC and a group of friends to headbang with in between shots of whatever cheap crap you can get your hands on.
7Nevermore
Believe in Nothing

Warrel Dane would be a tough act to emulate, but Believe in Nothing is one of the band's more accessible songs. It's much less gloomy than some of their other material, but still gives a good impression of what they're capable of while also delivering a great chorus.
8Armored Saint
Reign of Fire

Simply put, this song is fucking metal. It has some memorable riffs, great solos, and enough melody to please even the newbies.
9Dio
Don't Talk to Strangers

Dio of course had to make this list. This song was always one of my favorites and bands like Blind Guardian have done some great covers of it, but for now let's keep to the original.
10We Rock

Needed to get in one more party song, and this is one of my favorite opening tracks of all time. Now granted, you might feel a little silly boasting, "We rock!" while holding an under-sized plastic guitar controller, but then again... who cares?
