L'Via L'Viaquez? Seriously?

Am I the only one who thinks they could have picked a better song from The Mars Volta for this? What about Roulette Dares, Inertiatic ESP, Eriatarka, The Widow, hell even Tetregrammaton and Cygnus... Vismund Cygnus would have been better picks. Does anyone else find this confusing? Are their any other strange picks you think they made?

Why would they pick The Widow that would be so fucking broing

It would have been better L'Via L'Viaquez full version rather than the 4 min version

Anything from De-Loused in the Commatorium would be better. But...


"it's better than no mars volta..."
There's that.

The full version had like, 2 minute long breaks between guitar sections. I would have picked Inertiatic ESP or Roulette Dares. Seems like you just picked one song from my list and criticized the whole thing.

Personally...I hate The Mars Volta...so it's whatever.

We finally got a copy of World Tour at work (game and guitar only)...and to be honest, the only songs I enjoy playing over and over so far are Paramore's "Misery Business" (although I wish they'd have used the Sea of Treachery cover of it), Michael Jackson's "Beat It", that "Fur Elise" custom that came with it, and the Tool songs.

Maybe once we get the Ion Drum Rocker kit in the store, I'll enjoy the game a little bit more.

the drums are adequate, imo.

back on topic however, i'd say anything off bedlam, all nice and loud and mostly guitar-based, and not too long whatever they chose.

i reckon they should have had the full cassandra gemini as the 'epic' track, i mean, who likes dream theatre anyway?

the full 30 minute Cassandra Gemini would have been amazing

L'Via has some freaking amazing solos, showing the skills of both Frusciante and Omar Rodríguez-López. The only thing about that song that doesn't fit, are the long breaks, which they apparantly cut out, so I don't see the problem.
