Guitar Hero: RHCP secret revealed through… Rock Band 3?

We’ll know soon enough, but early reports are saying that certain songs are MIA in Rock Band 3, particularly Soundgarden and Red Hot Chili Peppers songs.

The Soundgarden songs would be for obvious reasoning if this turns out not to just be a glitch, with them releasing their new single exclusively on Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, but the fact that “Dani California” is missing brings up the old rumor that Activision is prepping to release a Guitar Hero: Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This wouldn’t be the first time that an export from a previous Rock Band game has hinted at a band-centric title coming from the rival franchise. You may remember three tracks appearing as non-exportable from the original Rock Band when Rock Band 2 was released. One of the most prominent tracks was “Enter Sandman” by Metallica. Less than 6Β  months later, we had Guitar Hero: Metallica.

We know this might just turn out to be a glitch, or maybe an unrelated issue altogether, as Tenacious D and Anvil tracks are missing as well, but you never know.

So what do you lovely folks think? Does this hint at a possible Red Hot Chili Peppers edition of Guitar Hero, or are we stretching a little too much?

UPDATE: Well this is looking like a stronger and stronger theory now that we see that “Spoonman” and “Give It Away” from Rock Band 2 don’t export, in addition to those bands’ two songs on the original Rock Band. Keep checking back for all the latest rumors and we’ll be sure to keep you in the light.

    So this is just a rumor? We don’t know for sure what songs are exportable from Rock Band 2 yet, right?

    • Brian says:

      There’s confirmed reports that “Dani California” from RB1 is not showing up in many who already have RB3’s library. Noone has confirmed what songs are exportable, but it’s rumored that “Spoonman” will not be on the list.

      This entire article is pure speculation and investigative reporting. Take it with a grain of salt if you please.

    • Jarpo says:

      No concrete info on the RB2 export yet. It should be released today or early tomorrow says HMXHenry’s twitter.

    @PikminGuts92
    It’s the RB1 RCHP and Soundgarden tracks that ate missing. We don’t know if the RB2 RCHP and Soundgarden tracks export yet.

    Also, I thought the missing Tenacious D and Anvil tracks were confirmed as glitches. Some are reporting it doesn’t play others are saying it does. Sort of like how certain CCR tracks are reportedly crashing 360s when you try to play them. It says they have harmonies added but when you try to play it sometimes it just crashes.

    I would hope that these songs are just being upgraded to Pro modes as surprise or something… It would suck to not have Give It Away export from RB2 because it would bust up the complete album. But than again I have a feeling HMNX didnt release any info on the RB2 export until release because they were afraid of the backlash of losing these songs. I would be pumped for a RHCP GH, but it would have to come with an export to GH:WOR on release, not 2 years after like Metallica.

  5. Don’t matter aslong as it’s good or below $40.

    It would be awesome to have Guitar Hero RHCP and if it were to happen I just hope its not as easy as Aerosmith was, which I have a feeling that it will be. Since this is speculation though, I wont get my hopes up cause theres been rumors about Queen, Pantera and Megadeth getting their own Guitar Hero game as well, so i guess we will have to see.

  7. Non_zero says:

    I won’t be buying it if that’s the case.

  8. xJKx STYX says:

    Anything GH is amazing, but holy shit RHCP would be epic!

  9. PSPCOW says:

    Hell, if this means more exports, I’m in!

  10. Ed Tanguy says:

    i think even though… i only know like 3 RHCP songs… and over here, they are not incredibaly well known…. i think i will happen, because VH, M, and A, are all very american, also, i know alot of people like them but there is only ONE track in the WHOLE GH library – Suck My Kiss, so, based on that song, it would be a good game, but i would still like a GH: Tenacious D, UNCENCORD, think of the Quest Mode πŸ˜› but i don’t think that’ll ever happen

  11. Yusuke says:

    Hey guess what Give It Away and Spoonman don’t export.

    • Dorkmaster Flek says:

      That they don’t.

      I understand the RB2 exports, but the RB1 songs were already relicensed and exported to our hard drives. They should just fucking work, period. You people are dumb fucks. Do you realize you’re literally turning down free money? You literally do absolutely nothing at all. Did I mention I really hate the music industry right now?

  12. Britten says:

    RHCP:GH would be amazing for bass

  13. DucksFAN says:

    I pray to The Almighty God above that He save us from a horrible Red Hot Chili Peppers specific Guitar Hero. “…For tith God, all things are possible…” *Praying* “God, please let this cup pass from us, not my will but Yours be done. RHCP would tear my soul up, please let this not happen. Instead rain your blessings down, and give us Guitar Hero: Disturbed. Amen. *End Prayer*.

    • Cactaur says:

      What’s wrong with a Guitar Hero: RHCP? If you think they don’t have challenging guitar songs go listen to their early stuff from the 80’s. They had much more punk rock high energy to their sound back then.

      • DucksFAN says:

        Didn’t say they wouldn’t be difficult, but they suck balls. Serious balls.

        • Cactaur says:

          Wow, talk about narrow taste.

          • Cactaur says:

            You can like what you like, but let’s stop bashing each other and out likes. I’m getting really tired of it.

          • Cactaur says:

            *our likes

            I wouldn’t mind more Disturbed either, it’s just that they have made a lot of appearances in GH and RB together as a whole. I would like to see some stuff that has never been in the games before.

  14. Jake says:

    I doubt Disturbed would happen, we already got quite a few tracks by them, same goes with Queen and Megadeth.

    I have a feeling the next one will either be RHCP or Pantera, the only other rumors that ive heard because, there was only one RHCP song used and really only two Pantera songs, were as Queen has had a couple track packs and songs in the games, same with Disturbed and Megadeth (obviously)

    Not to say a Disturbed game wouldnt rule, cause it totally totally would, im just not gonna get my hopes up

  15. Eduardo says:

    Please Activision…

    Just release it on DLC.

    ENOUGH GH GAMES FOR NOW.

    Thank You.

    • Yusuke says:

      aside from GH:WoR, we havent had a GH game since VH, which was 9 months prior to WoR.

      To put it into perspective, RB:GD came out roughly 4 months before RB3.

      However, the artist game concept allows the publisher to release a high quantity of songs from an artist they may have received free reign on licensing for instead of over multiple weeks of DLC. Sometimes the game is even required, as per the Beatles, but think about it. Would you rather have had 5 weeks of Green Day DLC? or would you rather a game for cheaper?

      Replace Green Day with RHCP and you get the point.

  16. Kyle says:

    I just pieced it together mentally. RCHP’s missing imports on rockband, their new 2011 album, Guitar Hero (Live) via UStream said something about the next featureing GH tital after WoR in 2011??????? God I love being smart πŸ™‚
