    I think its pretty much agreed by everyone 80s rock sucked balls. Big ones. Why arent they doing a 60s-70s rock expansion? There are far better kicks to be had from that era. Since GH1 came out ive longed for the day i could play Stairway to Heaven and again Harmonix has betrayed me!

    In a game focusing entirely on guitar masturbation, why not focus on a period of music that did just that?

    Its certainly not agreed by everyone that 80's rock sucked balls by the way, in fact a lot of current rock music is reminiscant of 80's rock.

    I say Why not. Some good and weird stuff came out of the 80's...maybe it will seep into the game...

    Of course SOME good stuff came out of the 80s, but its common knowledge the golden age of rock and roll was in the 60s and into the 70s, and in a game like Guitar Hero thats what really counts. Im sorry but in terms of what i would want to play:

    Rolling Stones, Doors, Zepplin, and The Who > Twisted Sister, Poison, Skid Row, and Guns and Roses

    There is no comparison. Anyone i know would say that it would be fun to play the 80s stuff on GH, but they instantly would say that it would rock so much harder to play the good stuff. And in GH rocking is the whole point.

    Edit: And Grey, thats why all the new music ive heard next to Wolfmother and RHCP is crap IMO.

    The 80's was possibly the time of greatest musical advancement for mankind. This is not my opinion, this is fact.

    The 80's had the best music for guitars. Earlier music will be better in a game like Rock Band.

    If you go to GIT, you'll be beat around the head with it as fact. (80's being a huge advancement in guitar playing that is, not a guitar hero controller) Of course they'll also beat you round the head if you try to revive the fashion that accompanied it.

    No, the 80's had the greatest music ever. Not just guitar, EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT.

    It didn't quite have the lengthy YES keyboard solo's of the 70's though.

    I don't really see what the problem is. If the creators of Guitar Hero believe that an 80s themed installment will sell, then they'll do it. It's not for everyone, but I think there is more than enough people that like 80s rock to have a semi-spin-off like this succeed. And if this sells well, then it's likely we'll see a 70s and 60s rock version as well.
