Australian DLC for RockBand?

Posted by SgtReznor (210 posts) -

There was an interview this week from one of the creators of Rock Band, who just happens to be Aussie, discussing how they're looking at releasing more localised songs to be downloaded for RockBand in the future. Being a) Australian, b) a big fan of Aussie rock, and c) a big fan of Rock Band, this excites me no end.

(Here's the story, btw: http://www.kotaku.com.au/games/2008/11/rock_band_getting_more_localised_ie_nonamerican_songs-2.html)

So, I decided to put together a little bit of a top ten Aussie tracks I'd love to be able to play on Rock Band from bands that have yet to be featured in a RockBand/GH title. I've tried to keep it slightly mainstream for the sake of having some of these tracks be genuine guesses at what could make it, so most of you should pick at least 75% of these...

1. Roquefort - Karnivool

  

  
2. Berlin Chair - You Am I
  


3. Sam Gribbles - Spiderbait
  


4. Living Type - Powderfinger.
For some reason, there's three versions of this on YouTube, and all of them have disabled embedding. Fuckers. Anyways, you can watch it here:

5. Tomorrow - Silverchair
  


6. It's Because I Love You - The Master's Apprentices
  


7. Come Anytime - Hoodoo Gurus
  


8. Cheap Wine - Cold Chisel
  


9. Captain (million miles an hour) - Something For Kate
  


10. One Second Of Insanity - The Butterfly Effect
