Rock Band info via links
For starters, there is the Rock Band WikiPedia page that is up-to-date for the most part. The folks in this thread are more than happy to answer any quick questions you might have. You can also mosey on over to the revamped Rock Band website and check out all the new and cool info they have up.

Whats this about 20 free songs?
These songs will be available exclusively to people who own Rock Band 2 on the Xbox 360, PS3 and the Wii. They will be available for download on November 4th for the 360 and PS3 while they are expected to be available for the Wii in early December 2008. Please remember to register your code on rockband.com/bonustracks to be able to download these songs. All songs are masters.

Wait, PS2 doesn't get DLC, right?
The PS2 versions of Rock Band do not allow for DLC. However, HMX was kind enough to put out track packs. There is currently one volume available with the second one to be release in November 2008. To see what songs are on those track packs, go here.

What about the Wii?
Originally, Rock Band Wii was a stripped down PS2 port that was quite shameful. In Rock Band 2, you will have a mostly fully featured game with the only limitation being customized band logos and a few other things. Online stuff, World Tour, BOTB, everything important is there in Rock Band 2. Unlike Rock Band, the Wii version of Rock Band 2 supports downloadable content, and all existing downloadable content will be made available to Wii users over time, with 30 existing songs to be made available at the game's launch. While songs can be stored to both the Wii's internal memory and to an SD card, only those songs in internal memory can be played.

Hmm, I want to see the notecharts for...
Pretty much any on-disc song can be found on YouTube. If you want to see notecharts for DLC or simply want to hear the music, check out the Rock Band DLC Song Database page.

GOD DAMMIT! MY GEAR IS BROKEN!
Harmonix/EA/MTV have been nice so far and allowed people to RMA their broken equipment via EA's Support Site. After that, you need your reciept to send stuff in. Their live support line is at 1(650)628-1001, 6am to 8pm PST and automated 24hrs a day. Be prepared to submit your receipt to verify purchase.

So how can I play with you guys?
If you're on Xbox LIVE, go ahead and add Rock Band PA as a friend. Then look at that gamertag's friends list and send out messages to people to coordinate a band or you can post in this thread. If you want to find people with DLC, it helps to know what you have and you can go to DLC Quickplay and make your own list (and tag it in your sig like some people). It is generally accepted to play in your difficulty range (i.e. not constantly failing out) and it's cool if you have a headset to be able to talk to people.

    Rock Band Misc.
    Here are some Rock Band related games or upcoming games to look forward to.

    The Beatles + HMX/MTV Games
    IMG%5DTheBeatles.jpg
    Apple Corps (the retainers of most of the Beatles master tracks) along with retainers to the rights of certain members (Yoko Ono and Patricia Harrison) have made an agreement for an exclusive game that will encompass the Beatles' musical career. So far, it seems that this will be a standalone game but no other information has been given out. It is expected to be completed by Q4 of 2009. Several sources have already quoted the related parties that there will not be Beatles DLC for the current Rock Band platforms.

    2.RIGHT click on the make merch button.
    3.Copy the address location.

    6.Take the address that follows bandphoto=. Paste it into an address bar and go to it. That should be big enough for ANYONE.

    Battle of the Bands
    • The main new feature is online Band World Tour. You can also take your band and challenge other bands via the new Battle of the Bands feature. Every day a new challenge will be posted on either the Tour Challenge or Battle of the Bands. As far as Battle of the Band challenges go:
    • Your band's score is measured up against another band from your friend list.
    • You can also measure yourself against your friendlist on Rockband.com via the Battle of the Bands listing.
    • It isn't in real time but the score meter shows you how your band's progress is going.
    • In a BotB setlist, your multiplier and leftover Overdrive will carry on to the next song.
    • Make sure you read the requirements and rules for each challenge.
    • You don't need to be in a full band.
    • The PA Band List
    • Interested in measuring up against other forumers? Friend them on LIVE/PSN and see who's gunning for top spot. All the scores are saved for the leader of the band on that gamertag. As such, only the leader of the band is listed since we can all sub in for other bands. You can also friend people on rockband.com via your profiles and tracks against their BOTB scores.
    Battle of the Band Challenges
    Go here, check out the upcoming battles, and compare your scores with other people who are your friends on RockBand.com
    Need a friend to compare with? Go ahead and start off by adding my profile since it'll end up being the PA-community page anyway.

    For those hoping Black Friday will bring the price of the AC/DC track pack down, I have bad news (no news?). They'll just be giving out a free shirt and live DVD. I forgot which one it was, but it doesn't really matter. You want cheap. You aren't getting it.

    That reminds me. I broke one of the drumsticks at the Best Buy kiosk while playing Everlong. I didn't even realize it until the end of the song.

    I definitely regressed a bit, as I haven't been playing as much real drums as of late, but after Joah posted that video of Dave Weckl, I started practicing some better hand technique and I was finally able to 5-Star The Perfect Drug.

    Thanks Joah/Dave Weckl!

    Nope, because those aren't downloadable.

    I'm afraid you lot can do the math. Besides, is there any doubt that they won't hit 500? I just see no point in number crunching more than I do each week. :)

    Well, I was planning on getting an ION kit. Then I saw the cost, and figured, what the hell, I'll get a real e-kit for RB2 (I started drumming about 7 months ago and have an accoustic kit) Last saturday the red pad went out on my RB1 kit.... Low on funds after buying a house recently, decide to buy the RB2 drums.

    I am very impressed with them. They are so much better than the RB1 drums. I'm using the official silencers, and the softest hit registers, except if I hit outside of the circle on the red pad for some reason. I was using gum rubber silencers on my RB1 pads, and I'm really amazed at the bounce that I've gotten off of the Rb2 pads. Its not as bouncy as the gum rubber, but it feels good, and you can definately get good rebound off them.

    Ordered an omega pedal too, and that thing is a dream. I use a similar pearl pedal on my accoustic kit so I can work on my heel/toe playing RB :)

    My only gripes

    They totally redisigned the drums, added cymbal expansion, with all this you would think they would have made it so you had some options on arranging the drums. Even if it was just the red pad, to put more in between your legs. Small complaint really.

    Cant find the cymbals anywhere out here. I'm going to have to order them online now that I have mail keys again.

    Having to hit the center of my red pad. I'm kinda scared to RMA them for this small issue, they've been working great.

    I still wish I woudl have gotten an e-kit solution, but I am very pleased with the RB2 drums. I'd reccomend a purchase of them

    Love this new thread shine, I feel like everything else was just a bad dream...the Killers pack, which is news to me, is like waking up startled from the bad dream and smacking the breakfast in bed all over your lap with hot coffee spilling on your crotch.

    Yes, I need more points and I'm poor.

    It requires everyone to bitch about Texas Flood.

    Because really, it's unforgivable that we don't have it yet.

    If they put out Jane's Addiction first, I'm going to kill something. Possibly myself. Or a spider.

    I want Texas Flood too, as well.

    I'd say why can't Rock Band get the Hendrix pack if they can get the Killers pack, but I'll probably be getting GHWT within a few weeks so it doesn't really matter that much.

    The dead frontman/namesake of The Killers hasn't been reanimated in GH:WT, for one.

    Yeah if they put out Jane's Addiction next then they will have effectively saved the only 2 albums I really cared about until the very last.

    I don't think anyone has posted this yet (and I'm kinda surprised considering...well, JCDI):
    Both Guitar Hero World Tour and Rock Band will add downloadable tracks from The Killers later this month, say Activision and Harmonix.

    Each game will get three of the Las Vegas band's tracks on November 25, the day that its new album Day and Age hits stores.

    You'll be able to download two singles from Day and Age ("Human" and "Losing Touch") on World Tour, as well as the classic "Mr. Brightside."

    Representatives of MTV told Wired.com that three Killers songs would appear on the Rock Band music store on the same day: "Mr. Brightside," Smile Like You Mean It" and "Spaceman," the latter another new single from Day and Age.

    OHHHH GOD I LOVE YOU

    I skimmed over this at first glance and though it was the GH:WT pack thing again which I already saw, then I was like, "Wait, that didn't have Smile Like You Mean It."

    I think what I'm trying to say is that this looks more like Jesus than I'll ever know.

    Wait, I thought the Killers pack was for Guitar Hero?

    This is good news!

    I do like that new "Human" song and hope it eventually makes it to RB.

    The AC/DC pack is not wal mart exclusive in Canada. I work at HMV and we have the PS2 version, though I havent seen the others.

    I don't even like No Doubt very much, so I'm sure Texas Flood will be after that. And probably after at least 1-2 albums that haven't even been announced yet.

    So I just finished the 93 song Infinite '00s challenge... Yeah... Don't think I'll be tackling the ESL2 for a while. Or playing Rock Band all weekend... My fretting hand is sore and feels like somebody new.

    TRU has buy one get one half off on accessories today and part of tomorrow. You can also take advantage of it online. Singing up for TRU Rewards program (it's free) gets you free shipping apparently.

    Thanks. Is this available in-store or online only? It suggests online but it isn't explicit about it. Anybody else know of any deals for MS points?

    Both. The only other deal would be live cashback which isn't that great considering eBay sellers tend to charge more than retail for them. You could always stake out auctions, but they have to be BIN items to take advantage of it.

    Okay guys so I just found out that I really like singing songs that I can sing.

    And by that I mean songs that are in my range.

    Things like Oasis, Radiohead, and the Who all fit nicely into my range. Some RHCP stuff too (like Under the Bridge).

    I want advice - what songs should I try that have similar ranges to those songs? I can hit pretty much anything in the game, but I hate it that I have to use falsetto for most of it. It's so satisfying to be able to sing a song in its natural register.

    I also like to sing mellow ballads along the lines of Don't Look Back in Anger and Behind Blue Eyes. Are there other ballads out there that I should give a try?

    EDIT: Oh, just noticed your message HylianBunny. Sorry! Must have missed the message somehow. I think I've missed two of your messages now. :P
