What songs deserve to be on Rock Band or Guitar Hero but aren't?

So.. I've been playing some Rock Band and Guitar Hero tonight, I have just about every expansion or game to come out under those titles. I've been trying to make a list of songs that deserve to be on there but aren't. Or songs that are on there for no good reason. So tell me what you think. I say that Billy Talent is one band that needs to have a song on there. Either The Navy Song or Try Honesty. And why did they pick the worst Senses Fail song? Can't Be Saved? I would have gone with Sick or Sane, or Stretch Your Legs to the Coffin Length.

Update:

PS - I'm sure that Led Zep just wouldn't give them the rights to do one of their songs, otherwise I'm sure that would have been on one of the games....

    The reason why I have so many non-rock artists mentioned is because the game is called Guitar Hero, but basically contains only rock and metal. It's kind of like saying that country, jazz and bluegrass guitarists aren't real guitarists...the more genres, the better it'd be!

    I prefered Guitar Hero's main set lists plus their gameplay in general, i felt, flowed a lot more smoothly than Rock Band (band hero is a guitar hero production so i group that in) which resulted in the songs on Guitar Hero being more difficult. But Rock Band had the better downloadable content, if it was possible to mix the two it would have been perfect.

    Wow, she's brave for even suggesting MCR, especially when anyone who buys a game with them on it would be forced to play that **** to unlock more songs. If that was me, i'd simply not buy the game just to avoid that torture. Games are supposed to be fun, not ear-rape.

    Anyway, i think there should be more music like Lamb of God, All That Remains, Slipknot, Coheed and Cambria, stuff like that that is actually challenging, and not the same old stuff you'd expect.

    Any decent song that never charted well or never made an executive a million dollars.

    Don't delude yourself into thinking those songs were chosen for their quality or because those musicians are somehow more special than everyone else. It's all about what sells.
