    Shit, I'd be getting a loan just to fly to Blizzcon! (not even kidding) He's amazing and a brilliant entertainer.

    I had the pleasure/honour of seeing him perform here in The Netherlands, the only non-English country he performed and it was fucking amazing!


    Anyway, not a fan of Blink, but considering the crowd and their previous bands, it's pretty much a decent fit. Rap however has no place in the 'con.
    Personally I would've liked RATM or Linkin Park (not a fan either) more but also feels more unrealistic.
    There was once a point in time when you were considered to have "made it" if Weird Al made a parody song of your own...

    I actually love the concept behind this band. Just seems appropriate for a video game convention also (computer animated band for a computer game). I could imagine what they could do for a WoW animated background for a computer animated band (plus the "lead singer" almost looks Forsaken to a point).
    I'd actually kinda love Gorillaz at BlizzCon lol

    Give me this any day...

    Everyone's taste in music differs and while you can use that as an argument against the bands they have had, the bands/singers/whatever the OP suggested, their lyrics are way more over the top than the artists that have performed. In this day and age, if you have some like lil wayne perform at your "business event" (that's what blizzcon is) then people will say you are promoting sex, drugs, and hoodlums.

    So you get a band that's slightly or very much past their prime that is not going to peg you with bad media coverage. That is just smart business.

    If they had Gorillaz. I would actually go to blizzcon lol

    Fuck yeah.

    Apocalyptica or even Kamelot. Could you imagine them doing Arthas, My Son. Throw some Simone Simons in there dressed as Alexstraza. Moist. So very moist.

    What would it take to get Eminem or Lil Wayne to perform at Blizzcon?
    A complete absence of musical taste on the part of the organizers. *rimshot* Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week.

    Now THIS is my idea of good rap. Who knew 50 Cent was so classy?




    And just in case you couldn't tell, this is 50 mixed with the Jungle Book

    Armin Van Buuren or Tiesto would be more relevant. But Eminem would also be awesome. I'd buy the ticket just for that alone.

    They pick the type of bands the majority of players/devs enjoy.

    How do acts like Lil Wayne and Drake fit with WoW's fanbase? Riff Raff would be sweet, though.

    They'd have to be near the bottom.


    see: Jay Mohr.

    Speaking of Mohr, has Blizz confirmed that he's coming back to MC again?

    They would never get a rap artist to perform at Blizzcon, it has to be family friendly. Blink-182 is very pop-punk and considering that most gamers are into the more rock side of music than the rap side, I'd they they are perfect.

    Your persistence of vision does not come without great sacrifice. Let go of the tangible mass of your mind, it is only an illusion. There is no escape.. For the soul burns on everlasting encapsulated within infinite time. A thousand year journey at the blink of an eye... Humanity is dust..

    Because you want to have something with a larger appeal and would be something your fanbase would be interested in.

    Most WoW players are 16-30 year old white males. Rap might be popular but it's not something that's greatly popular in that particular demographic.

    I dont like rap, seriusly, it is horrible (IMO) not my favorite music style

  17. #357
    Is that the op really calls music?

  18. #358
    What would it take?

    The entire Blizzcon fanbase to go apeshit. And not a second before that will Lil Wayne be invited.
