AFI - "Snow Cats"
There's something magical about this AFI song to me. Maybe it's that it sounds like AFI have matured both musically and lyrically, or maybe it's that the song is just so haunting. Either way, I feel this would be a fun song for Rock Band.
Air - "Sexy Boy"
Is it a perfect song for Rock Band? No, far from it. But I believe some more electronic music should be welcomed into the fold, and with a bassline like that and angelic keys, why not start with Air?
The Alabama Shakes - "Hang Loose"
If you ask me, any and all songs by The Alabama Shakes should be added to Rock Band, but this seems like the perfect choice to start it. Such a fun little song.
The Alarm - "The Stand"
We already have one song about Stephen King's novel 'The Stand', so why not another with a haunting harmonica?
Alex Cornish - "Brothers In Arms"
This one is a bit of a wildcard one. I'm totally stoked that we have the original Dire Straits version, but this cover is beautiful and I would love to see it join the ranks of the customs.
The All American Rejects - "Why Worry"
This was one of the first albums I bought with my own money, and I always get excited when I see more AAR customs being made. So, I just want to throw my hat into the ring of suggesting a personal fav.
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - "Brooklyn, You're Killing Me"
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - "Fire Escape"
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - "Island Radio"
Andrew McMahon's newest project is fun to listen to, and I can only imagine it would be even more fun with keyboards. The three above are suggestions, but I'm down for any of his songs.
Andrew W.K. - "She Is Beautiful"
Rock Band is a party game, so let's add some true party songs.
Andrew W.K. - "Party Party Party"
See above comment. And yes, this is from Aqua Teen Hunger Force.
The Antlers - "I Don't Want Love"
The Antlers - "Putting The Dog To Sleep"
Gonna be honest here: The Antlers are a personal favorite of a band. Is there music ideal for Rock Band? Debatable. That's why I limited it to the first and last songs of one of my favorite songs. If someone does make this song, it will be hard for me to play through the tears.
The Aquabats - "Super Rad!"
The Aquabats - "Awesome Forces!"
I seriously can't be the only AquaCadet here, can I?
Arcade Fire - "No Cars Go (EP Version)"
Arcade Fire - "Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)"
Arcade Fire's sound is that of a bunch of friends hanging around, having fun, and singing stories. We have some of their music already, and I would love to see the above songs made as well.
B.E.R. - "Rise Up"
B.E.R. - "Forever Mine"
B.E.R. - "The Night Begins To Shine"
Yes, these songs are from Teen Titans Go. I have mixed feelings about the show, but these songs. Holy crap, do they have some serious grooves and beats. Not holding my breath on these, but dang "Rise Up" is a cool anthem.
Bad Moves - "The Verge"
I love indie garage rock, and this song is such a breath of fresh air in music as of late.
Beastie Boys - "Shadrach"
It makes me feel better to know that I'm not the only fan of the Beastie Boys here. In fact, they were going to be first concert way back when. Anyway, this is one of my favorite songs by them, and I feel this could actually transfer to Rock Band fairly well.
Beebs And Her Money Makers - "Waterfalls"
I'm a huge fan of ska, and you will see quite a few of suggestions for the genre. Here's a fun cover that would be fun to see in the library.
Ben Folds Five - "Army"
I seriously can't be the only one to want this song, right?
Best Coast - "The Only Place"
I swear this song was my summer jam way back when and it seems like it should of been on Rock Band to begin with.
blink-182 - "All Of This"
blink-182 - "Home Is A Lonely Place"
Shameless plug for more blink-182.
Bomb The Music Industry! - "Vocal Coach"
Jeff Rosenstock says it best with this song: nothing's forever, dude.
Buck-O-Nine - "My Town"
A band from my backyard singing about our hometown. Of course I would love to see this song being playable.
Catfish And The Bottlemen - "7"
This was the first Catfish and the Bottlemen song I heard and I fell in love with their sound. Shame this was never done beforehand. Maybe some time soon?
Catherine Warwick - "Pollyanna (I Believe In You)"
Catherine Warwick - "Bein' Friends"
The old Nintendo game 'Mother' (also known as 'Earthbound Beginnings') is one of my favorite games for two reasons: the story and the beautiful music. These two songs always touch my core and I love it to death. The songs just remind you of the beauty of friendship. Also, I highly recommend playing all three games of the 'Mother' series if you can.
Cheeseburger - "Commin' Home"
Sure, it's the opening to theme to 'Superjail', but you can't deny it's perfect for Rock Band.
The Church - "Under The Milky Way"
This song blew me away when I was a kid. Even more so when I found out that the solo is actually a bass played with a bow, and not bagpipes.
Dan Potthast - "Melbourne"
Dan Potthast - "Somewhere In The Between"
Dan P. used to be the frontman of the ska band MU330. He then started an indie career, which I feel he found his home. If you ever get the chance, see him live. His live shows are always on the spot and with writes songs right on the spot. He's such a fun guy.
De La Soul - "Say No Go"
I'm a sucker for old school hip hop, and this has to be one of my favorite De La Soul songs.
Death Cab For Cutie - "Grapevine Fires"
Death Cab For Cutie - "Transatlanticism"
This might be one of my favorite bands. Something about Ben's voice, the crafting of the music and the lyrics, and how it all comes together to make something so beautiful. 'Transatlanticism' is a near flawless album and my go-to album to relax. Would love to see the whole album done one day.
The Decemberists - "The Crane Wife 3"
I feel we got robbed of The Decemberists' music in Rock Band. Yeah, we got "The Perfect Crime #2", but I know we could have gotten this and maybe more. Maybe I just wish we did.
Dropkick Murphys - "First Class Loser"
Dropkick Murphys - "4-15-13"
Dropkick Murphys - "The State of Massachusetts"
Everyone knows "I'm Shipping Up To Boston", and it's a fine song. But Dropkick Murphys have done so much more than that. And their newest album, my goodness they are still as rowdy as ever.
Echo And The Bunnymen - "Lips Like Sugar"
The hook in this song is so infectious. It would be so fun to play.
Elton John - "Sad Songs (Say So Much)"
This Elton John song always seemed forgotten. It's such a fun song with a fun piano part and lyrics saying it's okay to be sad.
