Top 10 Most Wanted Rock Band 2 Cover Songs

Gamer 2.0 writes: "Rock Band 2 has just hit stores and it looks to be the most complete and definitive collection of rock artists compiled in one game to date. But while the developers have improved the vitality of the songs (by making them all master track recordings) and have included an astounding 84 tracks on the disc alone, what more could possibly be added? Sure, there is downloadable content complete with full album tracks and exclusive songs from top bands, but many fans want more than just song after song. To help boost creativity in an attempt to grab Harmonix's attention, we at Gamer 2.0 have developed a list of our Top 10 Most Wanted Cover Band Songs that we would like to see in Rock Band 2."

What an awesome article. Oh my god, I would love to play Jimi Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower. That would be crazy! I'm going to go listen to the Experience album now. Hahaha.

I remember when my uncle introduced me to Jimi Hendrix. I thought I had never listened to him and he threw in a "Best Of" CD and I had already known and loved just about everything on it. I just didn't know it was him.

I like the choices, and I have an additional recommendation. Foo Fighters cover of Fade to Black by Metallica.

Soundgardens cover of Into The Void (Black Sabbath)
TOOLS cover of No Quarter (Led Zeppelin)
Metallicas cover of Bread Fan (Budgie)
A Perfect Circles cover of Ashes to Ashes (David Bowie)
Type o Negatives cover of Summer Breeze (Seals and Croft)
Clutches cover of Money (Pink Floyd)
Pigmy Love Circus' cover of 21st Century Schizoid Man (King Crimson)

haha, I loved the version of Breadfan Metallica. It freakin rocks.
ANY Type-o negative would rule. Haunted would be cool.

AlexQuevedo3702d ago

I have some others in mind: Weezer's Velouria, RCHP's Higher Ground, and some others I can't think of. Perhaps I'll comment later

The main missing song that I'd love to see that's not on this list is Marylin Manson's cover of Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This, which he turned from a fairly cheerful song into his own sick, twisted version.

Bennosaur3702d ago

I thought his cover of Tainted Love was better than his cover of Sweet Dreams.

Also how about Whiskey in the Jar-O by Metallica
I quite enjoy Children of Bodom's cover of Rebel Yell too
Led Zepplin's cover of You Shook me (all night long)
Faith No More's cover of War Pigs
and I know it wouldnt be really one for RockBand but Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt is outstanding and in my opinion far superior to the original
