Default Is Lego Rock Band tainting the DLC?

I'm beginning to be a bit resentful of the apparent mandate they have to bring out more pop-rock "family" friendly songs each week. This is supposed to be ROCK Band after all...

Rock Band is played by many people who like many genre's. You are not forced to buy it all.

I'm still trying to figure out which tracks are pop-rock. Certainly not Slipknot (which in my opinion doesn't even qualify as music) and not Simon & Garfunkel (which seems more Classic or Folksy). I gave the Lights Revolve tracks a listen and it doesn't seem pop either; indie or alternative. In fact, I think it's the best track this week.

I can't wait until Rock Band Network goes live in earnest, hopefully in a few short weeks. Getting a small handful of releases every week (95% of which I don't care about) doesn't really work for me.

What I'm also wary about is how quickly these releases will be distributed to the PSN Store once they're available on MS/XBOX.

Default Things are about to get crazy?

According to the WSJ the RB Network launches tomorrow:

http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-...18-707751.html

Quote:
MTV Games is hoping to goose sales of its flagging "Rock Band" series with a new service Tuesday that lets average users upload and sell videogame versions of their own music.

The service, known as the Rock Band Network Store, may offer a few minutes of fame to rudimentary garage bands by allowing millions of game players to access their music.
Either their website is crappy or you need to be a registered user to read the whole article.


*EDIT*

Check out rockband.com. That looks to be all the confirmation I need...

My understanding (from previous articles I've read), is the authoring software itself costs about $1000, which really isn't that bad when you're talking about pro authoring software, but definitely not in the range where you'll get every teenage high school band jamming from their parents' garage furiously uploading their songs to RBN.

And of course on top of that, as pointed out above, there are currently only a handful of individuals/companies who have the requisite training/'certification' to work with the authoring tool.

Default RB brings the Umlauts

This week is a "metal" pack:

Quote:
• Blue Öyster Cult – “Godzilla”
• Blue Öyster Cult – “Transmaniacon MC”
• Hawkwind – “Master of the Universe”
• I Mother Earth – “Levitate”
• Motörhead – “Killed by Death '08”
• Nazareth – “Hair of the Dog” (2008 re-recording)
• Rage Against the Machine – “Bulls on Parade”

(All tracks are original master recordings)
These tracks will be available for purchase as individual tracks on Xbox 360 and on Wii on Jan. 26. These tracks will be available Jan. 28 for PlayStation 3.

Price: $1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360) per track
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points™) per track
You get bonus Lemmy content with Master of the Universe (bass, not vocals).

What kills me is that Master of the Universe and Silver Machine are on the same Hawkwind album, and Silver Machine is the far better track...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3W7ch0oLeA
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MoZ_Lg21b14

In any case it's psychedelic space rock, so the visuals will be out there I'm sure.

Godzilla is another GH1 track that I'm happy to see! And hey, no Lego friendly songs this week. Yay!
