^its about time someone mentions priest. here's my list.

judas priest - either the sentinel or hellrider
iron maiden - hallowed be thy name
mercyful fate - a dangerous meeting
venom - at war with satan
metallica - anything old school
megadeth - looking up the cross or into the lungs of hell
testament - musical death
annihilator - refresh the demon
deep purple - highway star

f***....there's just too much good metal out there to condense it all into one game!

It would be good if there were some KoRn, mostly from self titled to T.A.L.I.T.M and maybe a few songs off S.Y.O.T.O.S. And some System of a Down songs would be nice too... like Prison Song, Deer Dance, Violent Pornography. Other good bands are those mentioned previously: Slipknot, Avenged Sevenfold, and Iron Maiden.

Slipknot for rockband.. uhh you have to do the blister exists for the marching drum part for the drums that would be sooo fun to do. Children of Bodom is a must for this game. But you also need some classics like Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, Slayer would be sweet..but wont happen lol
