N.E.R.D, Q-Tip, and Run-DMC are the only good artists on that list.

Its got ODB! I will definitely give this a try. The intent of the game is to have some fun and be social and have a good time. Same way people play Rockband but don't play actual instruments.
@6... the Sugarhill gang! LOL

They have a very loose interpretation of Hip-Hop, it seems.

This game looks off the heezy.

I can't wait to hear that cover of "Lollipop". After playing Lollipop Chainsaw, that song has been stuck in my head, and I can picture some pretty awesome dance moves to go with it.

Less than 20% is Hip-Hop. I may sound old when I say this, but fuckin hell, what happened to the 90s? We had the best music, best cartoons, best toys, our era was the shit, and no advancements will ever come close to the sheer genius of that decade.

@23 because "hardcore" is a subjective term, just like good is a subjective term. "Core game" is a buzz word thrown around by people who think they are too cool to play anything but a certain type of game. And every time a Kinect game comes out, someone feels the need to differentiate themselves from the people who play these games (which run the gamut from shovelware to pure awesome), just like without fail when Rock Band DLC is released someone will ask if people still play these games.

This should be called the "Waste Your Money On Another Shitty Game For The Kinect Experience". Almost all of this is rap and pop. No hip hop at all. Of course hip hop musicians don't have gay dancing in their videos. They are all doing drugs, fucking a hooker, or killing a cop.

I wish people would stop complaining about everything on this website and just realize that other people in the world have differing tastes in music, movies, and games.

@29 Amen....I'm so fucking sick and tired of these rock and metal elitists judging people by the type of music they listen to. im sooooo glad it's not another fucking rock game. personally i like 90's dance, eurodance and electronica. but im not going to bash rap and hip hip just because i dont really listen to it either. on a whole im tired of music/ dancey games altogether.

when the hell is microsoft going to listen? seriously... people are getting angry out here. give us some more non kinect core games and exclusives that rival the PS3, you bastards.

can we get a dance/electronica genre dance game next? only 2 songs on that list I like are Tricky and Return of the Mack, though I personally never really liked rap & hip hop ( typically listen to Nintendo soundtracks )

Just a natural extension of the whole "casual gamers" push. But beyond that....fucking why?
