I really hope matt bellamy is not on there :( he's too pretty and awesome to be associated with this

Wow @ Artist Characters. 

Songs look solid too!  2 Nirvana Songs, Megadeth, and Iron Maiden! :) 

Wish they coulda put in a Korn song though, Freak on a Leash was fun to play in World Tour. 

Also, wtf is that AFI Song!?  I have all their Albums and never heard of it... is it new!?

You should try judging the game as a individual product, not with spin off games in mind. Yes WT was lame, but on the evidence of this, unofficial list, it looks like it's going to be pretty good game. How good it will be will depend on what else it will offer.  I really think GH needs to do something new, a new hook of some sort, a touch of innovation that makes it distinct from the Rock Band experience.

Is this the actual setlist or not? The whole "unofficial" thing keeps throwing me off.

If it is real, then most of the songs are hit or miss. Some are great choices, others are terrible ideas, and then there are some artists which are on the list and they picked a terrible choice (Megadeth, I'm looking at you)

Im not on about the quality of the game - at this point they are all the frigging same - i just dont want to see my beloved bellamy in a bad anamotronic versoin of himself miming badly to avril lavigne or whatever it is the kids listen to these days - not to sound too elitist but every time in the past 2 iterations one of the stars has come out -i've died a little

That would look pretty horrific. You would think such artists put restrictions on that sort of thing, by that I mean making sure their image is used only to mime on male performers and certain tracks chosen by the artist.

Only one A Perfect Circle song? That is kind of disappointing.

@Linkyshinks: Sounds Awesome!

Meh.

Gamma Ray's cool.

Sunny Day Real Estate finally gets some love. However, I don't feel like buying an all new rhythm game for a very long time. Hopefully some of their material comes out as Rock Band DLC at some point. I thought Harmonix were supposed to be the ones who cater to the indie crowd anyways.

EXACTLY!!!! I saw Megadeth on the initial artists list and I thought to myself "Holy Wars is the obvious choice, hell it's enough for me to buy the game." and then they pull out Sweating fucking Bullets?! Really? Same thing with Rammstein, Du Hast is going to be boring as hell to play, there's a multitude of other great songs buy them that they could've picked. At the very least they finally put Smells Like Teen Spirit in.

I really don't know on this one. The fatal flaw with me for GH4 was the shitty set list, this is better, but I just don't know.
