Bands Who Deserve a Self Titled Guitar Hero / Rock Band Gamegotamu All these bands deserve to have a self titled game the most. They've done a lot in their career and have a lot of songs suitable for GH or RB. This list does NOT include bands who already have a self themed GH or RB game.
The Top Ten
Although it will never happen due to Robert Plant not wanting to be remember for 1 song, Zeppelin still deserves one more than any other band. So many people listen to so many of they're songs. Stairway TO Heaven is arguably the biggest song of the 70's. They're the 4th biggest selling band of all time and people still wear the 1971 U. S. Tour t-shirts. - gotamu
This would be great but would also mean the company that releases it has the right to their songs and the other can't put it on their networks and maybe not even in their games
I've read that the reason why Led Zeppelin (my favourite band) songs are not even on one Guitar Hero is because Jimmy Page has said that if anyone wants to play the guitar, he has to buy a real one and to learn to play a real one
I completely agree - Rocker00
They influenced pretty much every metal band. MAIDEN RULES! UP THE IRONS!
Everyone talks about "Thriller" and how it sold 50 million copies. Everyone says that no album is even close in sales to "Thriller". Apparently "everyone" forgets that "Back In Black", AC/DC's 1980 album sold 48 million copies and was the biggest selling album for 4 years. AC/DC is one of those trademark bands. A lot of people that listen to only pop, rap, country, etc have at least heard the name AC/DC and know they exist. That's pretty remarkable to be able to say that. But they're not just a famous name, they're one of the greatest bands of all time. Back In Black is one of the most recognizable guitar rifts ever and also one of the most commercially sucssesful Hard Rock songs ever. AC/DC is also one of only 2 bands to lose the original vocalist and be more successful with the 2nd vocalist. - gotamu
Who the HELL put linkin park on here? And WHY isn't ACDC at first place? I'm Linkin Park fan myself but I know they don't come close to any of the bands on this list, much less than ACDC. Comparing them to ACDC would make them be around some sort of weekend assistant roadie for ACDC. ACDC FOREVER!
Everybody thinks taylor swift and her fearless or some other crap has gone platnum "so many times" howevery nobody knows AC/DCs Back In Black has gone platinum too many times too count taylor swifts has gone platinum around 3times
Awesome guitar along with Brian singing totally awesome.V 2 Comments
They certainly have enough songs. They should make a Rock Band for them now! I love Queen and their legacy deserves a little... You know, help. Because some people still don't know who Queen is. And if ANY ONE adds Justin Beeper, I will destroy the world. Thanks
Very popular with some extremely famous songs, but also have enough guitar work to warrant a whole game. They have a "SingStar" game, but should have one of these too. - Scretty_MUFC
I'm not a big fan of Nirvana. My favorite genres are Hair Metal, Arena Rock, and Thrash Metal. Nirvana killed 2 of those and the other hasn't been the same since. Non-the-less Nirvana was very important band and had Kurt Cobain not died Nirvana could've easily been the next Beatles. They were a little of a cult type band; they had 4 or 5 big hits and every other song was considered a hit to they're die hard fans. Nirvana completely changed music and. 00's Rock and even 00's Pop is influenced by Nirvana's Grunge style of music. - gotamu
Known as "the most dangerous band of all time" GNR is a very recognizable band. VH1 names "Welcome To The Jungle" as the #1 Hard Rock Song of al time. On that list are songs like "Stairway To Heaven - Led Zeppelin", and "Walk This Way - Aerosmith", etc. To be #1 on that list is a high accomplishment. But Welcome To The Jungle (#7) isn't even they're highest charting song. Sweet Child O'Mine (#1), Paradise City (#5), and November Rain (#2) all charted higher. "Sweet Child O' Mine" is one of the greatest guitar songs of all time. "Rolling Stone" has "Welcome To The Jungle", "Sweet Child O' Mine", and "Paradise City" on it's list of the 500 greatest songs of all time. - gotamu
One of my favorite songs ever is Sweet Child o'mine. Welcome to the Jungle and paradise City are really good too. - booklover1
Oh Guns N' Roses! They may be FnO (fat & old) now, but aren't we all a little fat and older? Sweet Child... is my favourite intro EVER. And always will be.
From 1964 on, THe Stones have always been one of the most popular Rock bands. They're combination of blues and punk-ish rock N' roll is very hard to pull off successfully, but they did it. Mick Jaggar is without a doubt the best preformer in music ever. - gotamu
The Stones are legendary and they have a lot of great and diverse songs, so it would be very interesting to have a game about them. - Velilana
This could be a nice counter to the Beatles Rockband. A long career and plenty of songs.
Part of the thing with Megadeth is singer/lead guitarist Dave Mustaine was the original Metallica guitarist and he quit to make his own band. Well ok... so what? The full story of it is Metallica has a self themed GH and Metallica's Kirk Hammet is looked at by a lot of people as better than Dave, but from what we've seen with "THis Day We Fight", "Sudden Death", and "Holy Wars... The Punishment DUe" (all by Megadeth) we can tell that Mustaine is the better guitarist, that of which he's been trying to prove for about 30 years unsuccessfully. A GH Megadeth would probably finally show who's the better guitarist (this is coming from a guy with 87 Metallica songs on his ipod) - gotamu
Neil Peart is arguably the best songwriter of all time. He also has without a doubt the best drum set ever and Peart is referred to as the greatest drummer of all time more than any other drummer. Geddy Lee is also one of the if not the best bass player and he's a pretty good singer too. The 3 members of Rush are also the best musicians in a rock band, there is no one else who can preform songs easily with songs that go from 4 beats per measure to 6 bpm to 11 bpm to 2 bpm (cough* Tom Sawyer). - gotamu
Well obviously Led Zeppelin would be the best, but because they would never agree to having their music in a Rock Band/Guitar Hero game, I think Rush is the next best thing.
Definitely except no drummer would be able to do Tom sawyer or la villa stragiato.V 2 Comments
Versailles have the best dual guitarists ever. I don't even like the game but WE ARE VERSAILLES and we deserve one. Hizaki and Teru... Hell Yeah!
I still don't understand how Korn doesn't get any attention these days. They ushered in a new genre of music and made Rock cool again at the time when Boy Bands and pop music was taking over the airwaves. With 12 studio albums, they have more than enough material, and unlike most of the bands on this list, their albums' sounds and themes change pretty drastically from album to album. If nothing else, it wouldn't be close to a repetitious sound nor game.
DP is arguably more influential than Zeppelin and the Stones. Ritchie Blackmore inspired Yngwie Malmsteen, who some say is then greatest guitarist ever. He inspired me too but that's not important. It would defiantly be near impossible to play GH/RB Deep Purple cause of how good each member of the band is at the instrument they play - gotamu
Deep Purple is (for me) by far the best band of all time. I think, they are very underrated, cause they've influenced a lot of musicians too. To hear "Child In Time, " "Highway Star, " "Speed King" and all the others is a pleasure for your ears, and should be heard by gods!
But that's just my opinion. ;)
This would be amazing when Drones comes out
Neal Schon is one of the most underrated guitarists of all time. He's is in fact one of the very best. Then everyone knows that Steve Perry is one of the best singers, and Jonathan Cain and Steve Smith are some of the greatest keyboardists (Cain) and drummers (Smith) ever. Journey's labeled genre is Arena Rock, but they have been interpreted as being in a lot of different genres. Before Steve Perry came, they were a Fusion band. "Any Way You Want It" is on VH1's list of the 100 greatest Hard Rock songs of all time, and a lot of Hair Metal radio stations on iTunes play Journey songs. Journey is the only other band that has been more sucsseful with their 2nd vocalist than theyre 1st. - gotamu
Neal Schon is certainly THE most under rated guiarist... EVER!
His musical versatility, his incredibly creative song writing skills,
And the amazing style he created in the early 70's, which caused the birth
Of the "80's guitar solo ", which was copied by so many guitarists, in later years, along with his ability to shred with the best of them, should land him in the top 25 guitarists of all time... And the various styles coverd by Journey, in all the years they have been together seems unmatched by any band
