No, Rock Band 2 hasn’t even come out yet, much less any plans for a third one. But the first Rock Band game has become such a major force in the way Americans consume music that the announcement of RB2‘s set list this week was a huge deal. I mean, Axl Rose is using it to debut the first official track from Chinese Democracy, dude! (Hopefully this does not mean that Rock Band 2‘s release will be unexpectedly delayed for another 14 years.)
So we figure it’s never too early to start brainstorming for the inevitable unveiling of an even bigger Rock Band 3. Personally, now that RB2 has landed the first-ever videogame licensing from Bob Dylan, I’d like to aim high and hope they could nab a Beatles tune. More reasonably, I would love to jam out to the lo-fi goodness of the Olivia Tremor Control. Or — ooh — solo along with noted axeman Lil Wayne!
Your turn: What songs would you pick for this hypothetical Rock Band 3 tracklist? Remember, it has to blow Rock Band 2‘s already pretty awesome list out of the water…
