The Strokes "Reptilia"
Jet "Are You Gonna Be My Girl"
OK Go "Here It Goes Again"
Nine Inch Nails "The Hand That Feeds"
Pixies "Wave of Mutilation"
Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Maps"

I am most looking forward to Bon Jovi's "Dead or Alive" and Beastie Boy's "Sabotage". What songs are you looking forward to, and who is playing what in the Official Knights of Cydonia Band?

See, I was worried about this. I had the understanding that Pete called drums. But I also called Drums, I think we might have to do a "Drumline" style drum-off.... or just give it to me.

Don't we need the best looking dude to be our lead singer, and that's either Josey or Unky.

P.S. Is pete okay?

I am hereby calling Cowbell. If that doesn't work out I have formal trombone and voice training. Lastly, the only song in Guitar Hero II I haven't beaten on Expert is Free Bird so I got that goin' for me.

Because it will be the lamest part of the band.
