*** Were it not for it's length of one minute, The RedHotChiliPeppers' "They're Red Hot" would be right up there with the Mayhem Pack songs. Know this: it will be the single most difficult minute of your life.

*** The hardest song on vocals is currently the RedHotChiliPeppers' "They're Red Hot" . You'll probably be mumbling the first few times you play it, since the words go by so quickly you won't even be able to read them, let alone hit all the notes while enunciating. Do yourself a favor and use the talky parts as an opportunity to inhale.

* CultClassic: Even after the demise of instrument controller-based rhythm games in the mainstream, Rock Band still has a devoted fanbase. On nearly every status on the [[http://www.facebook.com/RockBand official Rock Band Facebook page]], there's multiple user comments wanting ''Rock Band 4'' for Xbox One and [=PS4=] and/or for Harmonix to resume regular DLC releases. Harmonix eventually [[http://www.harmonixmusic.com/blog/rock-band-4-announced/ announced]] it would release ''Rock Band 4'' for Xbox One and [=PS4=], which was hinted by periodic releases of DLC for ''Rock Band 3'' starting in January 2015.

** ''Rock Band 4'' gets hit with this due its weaker on-disc soundtrack compared to its predecessors[[note]]Despite some noteworthy additions to the franchise (e.g. Music/TheProtomen, Music/{{U2}}, Music/VanHalen, Music/ElvisPresley, etc.), several songs are either by little known [[MusicOfThe2010s 2010s]] artists or {{One Hit Wonder}}s, and songs from the series' returning artists (e.g. Music/{{Rush}}, Music/FooFighters, Music/JudasPriest, Music/QueensOfTheStoneAge, Music/AvengedSevenfold, etc.) are either deep cuts or new material, since most, if not all, of their most well known songs were already in the game, either as on-disc material or DLC[[/note]], shallow character customization[[note]]At least at launch, players can't adjust a character's weight and height, there are limited number of faces, shoes are paired to bottoms, and so on[[/note]], the absence of online play and practice mode, and the removal of keys and pro guitar. Harmonix stated that several missing features may be added in later updates to the game; however, keys and pro guitar ''won't'' make a return in ''[=RB4=]''.

* TheyJustDidntCare: [[AvertedTrope Hahahaha, no.]] They do care ([[Music/FaithNoMore A lot]], [[DoingItForTheArt actually]]). Case in point: one of the ways they're dealing with the 1000+ songs some people have in their collection for ''Rock Band 3'' is the addition of filters. The other way? Saving usermade setlists - [[http://www.rockband.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1226760&postcount=11 something that has been asked for since 2008!]]
** [[http://www.rockband.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1226564&postcount=4 There's irony in this earlier reply in the same thread...]]
** ''Rock Band 4'' definitely gives off this impression in some ways, though. No practice mode, no online available from the start, a weak setlist, an even weaker career mode and even the character animations have gotten lazy. Seeing the drummer look like he's drumming along to a soft pop song when they're playing something Music/IronMaiden is pretty lame.

** Some of the very difficult DLC track packs have one song that is significantly easier than the rest. The Mayhem Fest pack has "[[MarilynManson Disposable Teens]]", while Megadeth's "Rust in Peace" has "Dawn Patrol", and the Anthrax track pack 1 has "I'm the Man". These three songs has a one out of six on band difficulty, while the next easiest song in each pack is a five or four out of six, respectively.

*** Rock Band 4 has also been getting a lot of flack for the amount of pop songs that have been made available. To say fans were upset that Music/OneDirection and Music/JustinBieber now have more tracks available than,say, Music/{{Motorhead}} would be a ''massive'' understaitment.

** ''Rock Band 4'' was supposed to be a return-to-form for the series by going to focusing primarily on rock. This is true for the base game, but then the DLC adds ''Music/JustinBieber'' and ''Music/OneDirection''. You have three guesses as to how the fandom reacted, and the first two don't count. Made somewhat worse on March 7, when a ''Music/OneDirection'' back was released with 4 of their songs.

*** SystemOfADown's "Chop Suey" is listed as the second hardest song in the game on vocals, but the song's inflections really aren't at all complex. The only thing that might make it difficult is the speed at which the singer sings some of the parts, but that difficulty can easily be overcome by mumbling (which the game does not penalize you for), and once you get past their speed, they really aren't difficult to sing.
