Yeah, so a little bit of something for everyone.  Or nothing for nobody.  I like the Eels, so I'll have to check out that track.   Not sure about any of the others.

Am I the only one getting the vibe that these were rejected RB3-disc songs?
Regardless, I'm really digging La Roux's Bulletproof, and the Eagles of Death Metal, KMFDM, and Blondie songs are all pretty good. 
I still can't get into The Decemberists. Never have, seems that I never will.

I love that Blondie song... up until the point where she starts rapping.
And they picked the wrong The Perfect Crime

Will buy "Bulletproof" by La Roux, even if I don't really play RB2 anymore. I'll surprise myself with its awesomeness later down the road.

I'd like to see how Bulletproof is tracked.

@Timma1083:   Funny, I wouldn't have thought of that until you mentioned it.  Could be!  Think they'll have pro-mode stuff and harmonies when RB3 comes out?

Hm, lots of diversity this week. I'll have to check them out.
