Meh: Rock Band Reaches 1000 Songs

A few weeks ago Rock Band hit 1000 downloadable songs. Sounds pretty impressive right?

I didn't think so. 1000 songs is nothing. It is 2009. The average music fan "owns" way more than 1000 songs.

But let's not forget that this isn't a list of some well respected music blogger's favorite songs. This is just an attempt to please as much people as possible which means crap like Linkin Park and Korn. I mean, sure there's a few gems like The Pixies and Talking Heads, but it's not like they're going to make a Rock Band: Only Good Music This Time! anytime soon.

And of course there's the obligatory "start a real band" suggestion, but that's another blog post.
