    So I've got a birthday coming up and I'm seriously considering getting myself the AC/DC pack and then immediately flipping it on Goozex (after using the code, of course). Does that make me a bad person?

    More importantly: is it good? I'm looking at the list and I can only pick out maybe four songs that I don't know, and none that I don't like. I wouldn't normally spend $40 on what amounts to a DLC pack, but the fact that it has some immediate resale value is helping things.

    Roam on expert drums is a stunningly exhaustive workout.

    So true. It's quite a simple beat but very exhausting I don't know why. Favorite drum song so far...it's gotta be Interstate Love Song. That beat just flows.

    EDIT: I'll probably get Closer this Thursday (loved the song on GH3). And we've had the Muse discussion before but I'll say I just want anything out of BHAR. Or Bliss.

    If you like punk type stuff, the DK stuff would be good I guess. But none of it sounds interesting to me. Cept maybe a couple of the chick band songs. Female vocalists are always complaining about the lack of chick songs.

    Yeah, she notices more soreness from heavy sticks, the kind of sore after you work out or do a lot of yardwork or something. Heavier sticks are definately noticiable even if they're not that much heavier. You do a long of quick swinging around of them, even an ounce or two is noticeable after a few thousand drum hits. And she has actually lost weight doing this, more than you might have thought possible. She's lookin pretty svelte now. :D

    LOL, svelte I am not, but I have lost alot of weight since drumming on Expert, but its cause I wail on the drums alot and it does give me a good workout. I also until the last few weeks, I drum every night for at least an hour, usually more. I make sure I play the hard songs that are fast, its kinda like training. The heavier sticks hurt my hands after 5 or 6 songs, just holding them hurts a bit after a while, so I swap them out with my ION sticks (which need replacing). I am not totally amazing at the drums, but I can all but the stupid ones on Expert.

    I honestly cant think of anything more fun to do. Most of the time when we play in the evening we stream us playing, so you can see part of me drumming and the TV. I think the link is in Erandus' sig?

    We need more MUSE!! Like all the albums, or at least Absolution.

    I enjoy singing all the female vocalist songs with two exceptions: "New Kid in School" and "Pretend We're Dead"

    I'm sure both bands have better songs but I hate it when those songs come up.

    Plug in baby would be so goddamned fun on guitar. Also, I am debating picking up GHWT because I want to play Assassin (and some other non-Muse songs as well). Oh well, guess I'll have to stick with Hysteria for a while.

    Yes. Girl vocalists playing rock band complain that there are not enough songs in rock band that are by bands with female lead singers.

    The girls playing rock band should form a band and get a record deal and reco -- you know what, fuck it.. When you have to explain it like this it totally ruins the joke. At least Santa got where I was going with it.

    On the other hand, once you're done with it you'll be basically selling a stunted RB1 port and an invalid download key (as I understand it), so it would make you a bad person.

    Once you 'get' the tempo of the slower RYK RY RYK RY sections, it's not that bad. The fast blast beats are survivable by spamming RG as fast as you can, and the weird stuff between just takes a try or two to get used to.

    Shoulder to the Plow actually took me longer to be able to pass consistently, since its hard parts aren't easily bluffed-through. Some of the Megadeth stuff is harder as well. Blinded By Fear and Prequel to the Sequel both stand head and shoulders above everything else, difficulty-wise.

    So new DLC, got the Girl pack for the Lacuna Coil. I find it awesome and amusing that they have the guitarist singing all the 2nd vocalists parts. It's a pretty cool idea to show two singers on the stage when the game only officially allows for one.

    Also, on the dead topic of "chick songs", I'm kinda surprised we haven't seen any Feist/Broken Social Scene tracks.

    Speaking of chick songs, I would love for there to be a way to have a male and female vocalist to set in my band. I usually play guitar and it always bugs me to see my cowboy singer singing to Paramour or the B52's.

    The best Ive managed is like 30 something %. I got the 2nd OD, but had to use it right away cause I was in the red and the first set of blast beats were coming.

    If I could figure out how to keep a combo during the RY RY+bass section, I could spam through those blast beats and probably get through it, but I dont have the motivation to practice that song.

    Yeah, Assassin kind of ate in GHWT, but it was to be expected from how the song is and how GH is.

    You know what they need, MUSE wise? Besides more? Haarp. Whole album, the DVD version. The you get a great smattering of MUSE from all their albums. Except Shrinking Universe, but oh well. Also, it's live, so they may be able to dodge any issues arising, like say GH having ownership of Knights of Cydonia, the normal version.

    I've beaten it once or twice with a full band (Arikado, his sister, Shady) but never by myself. The R/G/Kicks are so fast I literally cannot keep a combo on them...

    Ironically enough, about halfway through the song it because pretty easy to keep a combo going and things are relatively easy to play until the very end.
