Reply To: I <3 the Eighties!


There were a bunch of 80s (as well as late 70s) groups that we got in Rock Band after RB3 came out with the keyboard, particularly in the New Wave/Post-Punk genre, I had hoped it meant we would see more from those groups but outside of the initial releases for the most part we didn’t get much else. Then some groups such as Duran Duran came out way before RB3 that totally need keys and harmonies. Anyways, here’s a sort of dream list of songs I’d had hoped would come out for RB, hopefully some of them get customs someday:


The Cure – Boys Don’t Cry, Killing an Arab, In Between Days, The Hanging Garden

Depeche Mode – Everything Counts, Strangelove, Halo, Enjoy The Silence

Duran Duran – Save A Prayer, Planet Earth, The Reflex, New Moon On Monday
