I felt a little bit sad when I stopped playing Rock Band. In some ways it may be my favourite game this generation, but I can’t imagine ever getting excited about playing it again – unless they release more Hendrix, HINT HINT. Still, Harmonix has just announced that they’ve hit over 3000 songs on the Rock Band catalogue, which is a pretty awesome achievement.
And it got me thinking, what is your favourite song on Rock Band?
I don’t even know where to begin. I enjoy the solo on ‘Alive’ by Pearl Jam, but I used to love my semi-ironic wailing on ‘More Than A Feeling’. I’ve got a soft spot for ‘Say It Ain’t So’ by Weezer – not because I particularly like the song, but because it was one of the first songs I finished on Expert.
Hates? Well ‘My Sharona’ can just get tossed into a pit of burning sulphur for all eternity – considering the vast amount of my family and friends that would insist on playing it, despite the fact that it’s about as much fun as jumping face first into a wood chipper. I once went to a LAN where this guy kept playing ‘Hysteria’ by Muse over and over and over again. So, yeah, I pretty much despise that song as well.
But anyway – keen to hear what songs you guys loved (or hated), whether it was on Rock Band, Guitar Hero, or both. Let us know in the comments below.
