I think led zeppelin might want to reconsider their choice about turning down guitar hero. It is now one of the biggest games in the world and if you ask me thats good advertising. so what do you think... yes or no and what song?

for me its yes and the ocean

Hiya, I think guitar hero is great and rockband we have both at Livewire and young people just starting out love playing them.

Do Led Zeppelin need the advertising?? No not at all they are the greatest rock band there has ever been.

That being said I would love to see them on both guitar hero and rockband, for he if they did it would have to be wholelotta love :o)

All the best

There should be a Led Zeppelin-only edition of Rock Band. I say Rock Band rather than Guitar Hero because I think it's a much better game and that all four members contribute so much to the band.

HELL YES! I just got Rock Band a few days ago.... I'm obsessed with it.... but the song selection is slim pickins.... I'd love it if they had an extender pack chock full of Led Zeppelin songs.

NO :wtf:

Led Zeppelin has always been about the music, and games are for little boy's, so I would have to agree with the above poster 'slagfarmer' and say "NO" to the use of their music in a game.

I don't thing Jimmy Page would be too amused about it either, do you?

and heres a nother bit of info... gh4 is going to include drums and vocals with a better drum set.. google it

Dude... Guitar Hero sucks. Activisions going to milk it for all the money its worth and mess it up. They have mad how many DLC promises they broke? I think they said that it would have the most DLC ever? Harmonix who makes Rock Band realizes how important the masters to songs are. They keep all masters that they have with them in a locked safe when they aren't using them.

And to all those who say games are for kids? Do you realize the average age of gamers is in the 30s? So don't say its for the kids. And to those who say go play a real guitar. If I want to pay 200+ dollars for a guitar and lessons. I would go do so. But I don't really want to learn to play guitar. (Drums are better)

I dont see why it's mandatory that Zeppelin do GH . They dont need the money as some bands do .

And second they really dont even need the exposure . Aside from The Beatles and Elvis , Zeppelin has sold more records than just about any rock band . If kids havent heard of LP because they didnt see them on a video game ! then i fail to see how they are even rock fans

Why wouldn't Jimmy Page be amused? He has kids. For all we know they might be jamming to Aerosmith as we speak.

Rock Band/Guitar Hero seem like good, clean family entertainment to me. I'm waiting for my daughter to buy it (with her own money)......we've already done the Dance, Dance Revolution thing, now it's time for a rock band in our home! Let's start with Good Times, Bad Times.

I'm not sure about some kids.. but I know that in my case, when I was younger, I used to lie down on my bed at night, turn down the lights, slip my headphones on, and become engulfed a world of music. It was a way for me to escape to another place. It was an adventure, and was my rock when everything else seemed unstable. Can you imagine the first time I heard Zeppelin? It changed my life, and still does to this day. It's an absolutely magical experience when I listen to their music, and it saddens me to imagine kids being turned on to bands by way of Guitar Hero, etc. I guess I like to think that the members of Zeppelin imagined kids at home, listening to their albums, staring up at the stars, dreaming.. being hypnotized and enlightened by the music.. But that's just me.

^^And I of course don't mean that Zeppelin shouldn't be enjoyed by friends in a party atmosphere.. I guess I just think that: 1) If you want to jam out to Zep, you should try learning to play a real guitar (or any instrument you prefer). I think it would be much more rewarding in the long run, and would feel 100000000000000000 times better once you've conquered a song. 2) If you don't want to learn to play an instrument, you can still rock out and listen to the original albums with your friends. But in my opinion, if you want to pretend like you're playing a guitar, why not try to play a real one? I mean if you want to be a 'rockstar', then why pretend? It just sort of seems like a waste of time to me..

Sorry if I'm being Ms. Debbie Downer. It's just how I feel.

Jimmy- or rather- Jimmy's management has commented on this. They said Led Zeppelin haven't been in Guitar Hero or Rock Band because the band themselves are uncomfortable with giving the master recordings to "strangers."

And WOW on that comment about games for little boys. You've obviously never played a game like Grand Theft Auto, or ever played a video game in your life.

On topic: I'd rather have Led Zeppelin appear in Rock Band than Guitar Hero. Guitar Hero is nothing but a fad and is not about the music.

Rock Band offers close to 500 downloadable songs ($2 a song). They have artists three-song packs, singles and even full albums. I would love to see Presence as an album download.

Another quick edit: I would not be posting on this forum if it weren't for music/rhythm-based video games. They opened me up to a whole new world of music and I cannot thank the makers of these games enough. There are kids I know that now listen to rock exclusively because of these games. I would love to see Led Zeppelin be a part of this revival in appreciation for rock music.

Rock Band ION Electronic drumset (doubles as a game controller AND real electronic drumkit!):

Guitar Hero: World Tour's drum controller does not convert into a real electronic drumkit, however, includes a "drum brain," which allows you to plug in a MIDI or electronic drumkit into the game console

I have never played any of those games, but I have heard of them and my kids have played them. My son asked me why Led Zeppelin is not involved in all this, and I have thought about it, in my opinion anything that would expose young people to them can't be bad. I would love everyone to know and appreciate Led Zeppelin as much as I do. But I also understand that they do not want to be commercialized spelling? like so many other bands. If they were to do this they would have to have an entire game devoted to them after all they are the greastest rock band in history, and how can anyone choose just a couple Led Zeppelin songs, that's impossible. I do want everyone to know and love our boys as much as I do, and I feel this is a good way to get that done. Well that's just my opinion.

I think in someways it may be good (getting Zeppelin out to younger crowds) but in some ways its not. It sort of makes people ignorant about that music. For example, I was watching a video of Cheap Trick playing Dream Police live on YouTube and someone posted a comment saying which ones Joe Perry just because That song is on Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. So I don't know.

I just had to mention that I'm proud of myself because I'm 13 and I'm one of the only people my age that I know who liked Classic Rock before Guitar Hero. Just Pointing that out. haha :D
