First off, I'd like to say that Blizzcon 2013 was amazing and Blink 182 was a pretty good concert, but I feel Blizzard could have done a much better job on picking a band and here's why: 1.) Tom was being a complete imbecile and was acting immature while Mark was trying to talk about the convention 2.)Blink 182 seems kind of 1999...maybe because the World of Warcraft xpac release is going back in time themed lol. So sense it looks like Blizzard wants to stick with hiring people that are Los Angeles locals, which makes tons of sense, here's a list of bands that I feel would have done a much better job and should be contacted to play next years con. System of a Down Sublime Metallica (would probably be the best pick but the most expensive performance rate) Avenged Sevenfold Linkin Park Greenday The Offspring Rage Against the Machine Red Hot Chili Peppers Deadmau5 or Daft Punk( doesn't live in LA but would be really cool) What would be your top picks?
OP has some great suggestions - Avenged Sevenfold (I asked for them after Blizzcon 2011 and they're local!) System of a Down Linkin Park Rise Against Metallica Lindsey Stirling would be pretty cool Avenged would be the ultimate coolest though in my opinion!! I am not a super huge fan of Blink but they do have some great songs, and it was pretty fun to see them, regardless of any complaints people have. I just think its pretty awesome that Blizzard brings in live music. Not sure if other major conventions do that sort of thing?
I would like to see the Tauren Chieftains and SongHammer (Those are the guys who won the talent contest this year) play next year. Make it a tradition that if a band wins the talent portion, their prize is playing next year's closing ceremony, that gives them enough time to assemble a set list (Though SongHammer has more than enough as it is now)
Won't ever happen because people have become spoiled with a brand name playing the closing ceremonies, but a shaman can dream.. :)
i would suggest Tauren Chieftains or 5 finger death punch or godsmack or rob zombie they got talent but the band they had this year was not my cup of tea but who ever suggested that band should be shot and chopped up because they dont have good taste lol jk but godsmack or 5fdp or rob zombie would be the best choices.
