Help Save Rock Band From Crappy Songs

SportsArise, my Internet minions, and take heed!  Harmonix and Electronic Arts are hard at work on the spiritual successor to Guitar Hero, Rock Band for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Xbox 360, and the developers want your input.  Specifically, they're looking for suggestions on songs to include in the game.  This is our chance to save Rock Band from crappy music.  How much derivative loud screechy screamy metal rock can the world possibly stand?  Let's suggest something different (yet still good).  As for me, I made a pitch for some of my favorite music from Huey Lewis and the News, Phil Collins, and Billy Joel.  There's plenty of other great musicians out there who should fit into the Rock Band experience.  Give me Eric Clapton, Elton John, maybe a little 1980s era Chicago for a ballad or two... anything but more generic songs where the lead singer shouts gibberish from the throat and calls it "singing".  Stuff the suggestion box with good music and make me proud.
