Rock Band: Where the hell is the metal?

Rock Band is severely lacking in Metal. That *might* be because it's not called *Metal Band*, but the butt-rock, emo, pseudo-punk, and alternative is a bit excessive. And I'm not talking "meedly-meedly-mee" metal. I mean some newer, more complicated, HEAVY type metal. Hell even some simpler stuff from the 90's and early 00's would be good to attack. Some Nu-Metal wasn't actually so bad, like the Deftones.

Something with some irregular time signatures would be nice, too. Guitar Hero 2 touched this a bit with Lamb of God, but there are plenty of options there. Meshuggah, Dillinger, Sikth, etc. These less-popular bands probably have a lot cheaper licensing as well, so they should capitalize on all the metal heads out there that want Living Room glory! ;)

Not to say that RB doesn't have variety, but it is severely lacking in the Heavy department. Throwing in a couple speed metal/thrash songs isn't good enough either. If you're going to do that, they might as well put in Death metal. LOL

Vent complete.
