Well that should make a lot of people happy.  I don't like Avenged Sevenfold's music very much, but their stuff is tons of fun to play in RB.  No idea who Juanes is, but If they use Spanish-style guitar work, though, the songs could be really interesting.  BTW, I had some yerbatero the other day.  Muy caliente!

I do really like all my other Avenged Sevenfold songs on RB, but I'm not motivated to buy any more DLC, probably until RB3 is released.

This actually sounds like a fun week, too bad my 360 just decided it doesn't want to display any video at all :(

Hate Avenged Sevenfold, but I've never heard Juanes before so I'll check those out.
 
No more DLC for me until Rock Band 3, though.

NO BEAST IN THE HARLOT!!?!?? 
 
Oh well, Avenged Sevenfold's got some really fun songs on Rock Band, whether I do or not like their music. 
 
As for Juanes, I know my mom listens to him but I haven't really checked him out lol.  
 
EDIT:  OH YEAH!!! I remember La Camisa Negra!  That song was tight lol.  Maybe I might look into Juanes then haha =D

The Juanes pack sounds interesting, I like a lot of his songs. Now if only I had Rock Band.

Picked up the Avenged Sevenfold pack out of boredom. Pretty much a complete regret at this point. If you've ever played any Avenged Sevenfold song in this game on guitar, you should have picked up on the pattern:
 
Chord sequences.
 
Awkward ho-po sequences.
 
 Chord sequences. 
 
More chord sequences.
 
Perhaps a fast strumming part.  

Time for an awkward solo with moments of fun.
 
Slower chord sequence.
 

I'd say Nightmare is the more redeemable of the bunch. Still bad music, tho :P. The best description of this band I ever read was 'boy-band with guitar solos' it holds up quite well :)
