I recommend avoiding The Downtown Fiction like a plague. There seems to be a deluge of boring, hyper-popular tracks recently, but thankfully there are still a few genuinely interesting songs to check out.

A spacey instrumental with a pretty damn interesting drum track. The guitar and bass have a lot of blank time, but each get their interesting riffs as the song goes on. Both get pretty nuts toward the end. I just wish they had waited a bit longer so they could chart the keys to ...keys.

Folk metal? Because another metal subgenre is exactly what we need amirite?

Could this be...ska? I'm not even sure. You sure don't see a lot of that in Rock Band. Please note that this is a very old preview and the charts have most likely changed since then. As far as I can tell it's the only available video.

I think I'll pick up the Fatter than Albert ska track. RB needs more ska!! ............ I DO wish that Komodo track had keys charted though :( I'll settle for using the keyboard to play the guitar chart. That's cool by me. And it's only a $1 too? And it's 7 1/2 minutes long? SOLD :woop:

Be warned that many of the tracks like Komodo - Spira Mirabilis, Hitman Blues Band - Two Minute Warning, Mystic Syntax - Let it Change and All That Remains - For We Are Many do not have pro drums.

Attack Attack! - Smokahontas, Blackguard - Allegiance, The Downtown Fiction - Best I Never Had, The Downtown Fiction - I Just Wanna Run, Polar Bear Club - Living Saints, Songs to Wear Pants To - Stevie, and Sister Sin - On Parole all have proper pro drums.

The Downtown Fiction - Oceans Between Us has pro drums but with major charting errors (all flams appear as red snare and yellow cymbal, but otherwise are correct.)

Complete list of songs with pro drums is here: http://www.rockband.com/forums/showthread.php?203264-RBN-Songs-With-Pro-Drums
