  • As a long-time fan of Silverchair I'm pretty disappointed that Straight Lines is in Rock Band before tracks like Pure Massacre, Freak, Abuse Me...their earlier and awesome tracks. Silverchair is kinda weird like that though, I can see them passing on their older stuff to push their more recent music.

    Tomorrow is one of their most well known tracks, it was their first single for their first album and it was (supposedly) first played in the US on 99X in Atlanta. Their first US show was in Atlanta at the Roxy...so Atlanta has at least some history with Silverchair, but the last time I saw them in Atlanta was 3 years ago and they played Young Modern almost in its entirety and didn't play a lot of their great older tracks like Tomorrow. That just seems weird to me. That's like Led Zeppelin not playing Stairway to Heaven or The Eagles not playing Hotel California...relatively speaking.
