[hr]

All of those are Master Recordings, meaning no cover bands. Unfortunately, that also means no Iron Maiden for now, but I'm hoping for Hallowed Be Thy Name to come later.
I've also heard from reliable sources that 20 songs will be released for free on the release date of Rock Band II. However, it doesn't make much sense to me (why wouldn't they just put them on the disc) so I'm not sure if that's true or not.

So far, the announced features and gadgets are:


-Local and global online modes to connect the entire Rock Band community

-World Tour mode, now online, simplifies the best of gameplay from the original Rock Band by fusing Solo Tour and Band World Tour modes and cranks it up a notch with an all new collection of opportunity gigs, challenges, cities, venues and hirable staff

-Tour Challenges that offer rockers a chance to play through mini-campaigns focused on the best songs by instrument, decade, genre, artist, album and more
Battle of the Bands mode challenges players to go head to head against other bands in constantly refreshed contests* created by Harmonix (*internet connection required)

-Quickplay makes it easier than ever to get in and jam without hassle while allowing for new prefab characters or customized characters that can play on any instrument plus lets you make your own set lists and organize your song lists in a variety of categories (genre, era, etc.)

-Customizable Set Lists keep the music rolling and your band rocking in Quickplay mode

-Drum Trainer mode gives players the fundamentals of different beats and fills, translating gameplay into real drumming skills

-Character Creator completes your look with all new choices in clothing, accessories, tattoos, hairstyles, instruments and more to keep your unique rock avatar playing the full rock part

-Backwards compatibility with all Rock Band downloadable music content released to date

-Disc Export Feature gives owners of the original Rock Band the ability to export most of the Rock Band disc tracks and upgrade them into Rock Band 2 gameplay–the first time ever in videogame history![2]

Rock Band 2 features the largest music catalogue of any music-based videogame to date including:

-The Rock Band 2 soundtrack will feature over 100 songs - with over 80 songs on disc plus an additional 20 bonus tracks which will be made available for free download this fall .

-Unrivaled Blend of Classic, Developing and Emerging rock acts including Pearl Jam, Metallica, Allman Brothers, Motorhead, Devo, Jane’s Addiction, Megadeth, Paramore, Modest Mouse and more.

-Rock Band 2 is the first and only video game to feature the music of AC/DC. It includes their epic rock anthem, “Let There Be Rock”

-After 14 years since Guns N’ Roses last official music release, Axl Rose selects Rock Band 2 to debut official new track, “Shackler’s Revenge” from the highly-anticipated album Chinese Democracy

-For the first time ever, music from American music icon, Bob Dylan, is featured in a video game with “Tangled Up In Blue”

With ongoing weekly DLC releases including individual tracks, track packs and full albums, the Rock Band music library will feature more than 500 songs by year’s end!

From the solid officially licensed Rock Band 2 instruments to the expanded third party options, Rock Band 2 introduces new and improved choices that promise to deliver unsurpassed realism. In addition, Harmonix and MTV Games have become the first companies to officially support third party instruments and accessories in a music videogame.

Achieve ultimate stardom with the upgraded functionality and smooth new look of the official Rock Band 2 instruments.

-Fender Stratocaster Controller takes on a new authentic look plus adds a reinforced strum bar, quieter buttons, wireless functionality and a built in calibration tool that automatically sets your AV setup to an ideal setting for maximum rock.

-Drum set goes wireless while also featuring quieter, velocity sensitive drum pads and a metal reinforced pedal.

-Microphone showcases authentic styling and weight.
[hr]
So, basically, we'll be able to play Band World Tour online, the Solo Tour has been updated to be more like the Band World Tour (but for one person), there is something called Battle of the Bands that will allow bands to play each other much like single players play each other in Rock Band I.

Well, this is looking very promising, and I will tell you that I can't wait till September!

I hope they seriously have "The Trees" by Rush. That may actually make Rock Band good for decent music

This list is official... so yes, they do have that song. And they had Tom Sawyer in the first.

Now I just have to hope that they don't mess up the vocals like in Tom Sawyer, and we'll be all good :P

(and before you say it sounds the same, they don't, I've listened to them enough to know)

Well, it's the master track, so it's not a cover band, so I don't see how they can mess the vocals up :P

Run To The Hills and Number of the Beast, however, are uuuuuuuugly.

Now, Im confused about this. I don't have Rock Band, though I still manage to play it a ton. If I buy the sequel, can I just borrow the original disk from my friend, pop it into my 360, and they will be loaded onto the second rock band? Or do I have to have saved data from the first game before I put in the RB2 disk for the first time?

I'm not sure how it will work, to be honest.

Those are not the Master Tracks, despite what they say. I've listened to them, and I can tell the difference between them.

Anything that says "As Made Famous By" is not the original track. I figured that one out playing GH3.

This songlist looks awesome for the most part. I'm really pumped about Interpol being in there although I'm still really pissed there hasn't been a TOOL song on either GH or rock band yet. Bastards.
