Everyone, please keep in mind that while our poll was to gauge interest in the bands that fans want to see in Rock Band, that’s no guarantee that any of these bands would appear as Downloadable Content (DLC) for current or future Rock Band releases.


Fans! We appreciate your enthusiasm for the polling, however, due to extensive abuse of stacking votes, the poll will only be available as one vote per IP address. Only the first vote cast will be counted towards the overall tally. We realize there may be more than one individual per household wishing to vote. Unfortunately, there were some individuals who voted up to 40 times for a single band that would have drastically skewed the overall results and it’s imperative that we’re able present a good sample to Harmonix and Rock Band.

We apologize for the inconvenience.
Thank you for your votes, everyone! Let other fans know to vote for your favorite bands to make sure they’re represented!
