Made you look! I made this post because I want this suggestion to ripple anonymously out into the world to the people who decide these things, especially after I read a 1up news story where (God forbid) U2 expressed interest in being the next spotlight band for a Rock Band game.
This must not happen.
So, instead, I suggest to the universe: Rock Band: Pink Floyd. And I suggest it here because I have hopes that this forum will have a lower number of people who stare with blank non-recognition at the name of one of the greatest bands of all time, certainly a band that could take on the Rock Band treatment with amazing results.
You even have all the imagery already established in the same way as the Beatles. The Wall? Oh my god (that flower scene). Animals (flying pig). Dark Side of the Moon (license Wizard of Oz footage). Meddle, Sid Barrett stuff (acid trip visuals yo).
Plus you'd be playing David f*@king Gilmour guitar! Give fair representation and follow David Gilmour with "Pink Floyd," while you give me some tracks and visuals from Roger Waters solo albums Pros and Cons of Hitchhiking (guitar track by Eric Clapton) or Amused to Death (guitar track by Jeff Beck)!
Maybe not a party atmosphere game but I think there's a whole squad of goth kids out there these days who think the Cure is as far back as they should bother to go.
Universe! Rock Band: Pink Floyd. Make it happen.
