Stan Bush has contacted Activision in relation to getting his song "the Touch" from the 1986 Animated Transformers Movie included in either "Rock Band" or "Guitar Hero", according to an article on kotaku.com.

You can help Stan Bush get his track added to either "Rock Band" or "Guitar Hero" (or preferably both) by contacting Harmonix the creators of "Rock Band" and Activision the creators of "Guitar Hero" requesting that "The Touch" be added to their Playlists.

Not sure about who Stan Bush is, or what "the Touch" Sounds like? I suggest that you click here for more information.

Thanks for the report.

I may not be great at these games, but they are good fun, and "The Touch" would make an excellent addition...

Someone needs to start a petition for each.

i think his song Dare would make for a better song on these games, though granted i'm just a guitar player so i dont care about the other intruments on rock band but yeah..lol

but hey, if they're gonna use songs from that soundtrack, then they have to get the transformers theme from lion...it has a guitar solo that begs rock band playing :P

They should of thought of this when they made "Rock The 80s".
Oh well, I think it's a good idea.

LOL :lol: why because i think the song is bad? It was the worst thing about the animated movie. I didnt like it when i was a kid and seen it in theaters and it hasnt changed all these years.. Lion or Black Labs version of the transformers theme is a much better choice. Kids dont want to play some slow song like the touch , they want to rock out.

Use this song

That would kick ass. Rather have it for rock band that way you can just buy it and not a hole track pack that may have crap songs with it. Unless the guys at guitar hero actually figure out that selling tracks by them selves is a better idea than track packs.

yeah I'll 2nd that.

Thanks but no thanks, it's bad enough cringing through it while watching the movie.


" Kids dont want to play some slow song like the touch , they want to rock out."
QFT it has everything that makes 80's music cheesy, all in one song. :APPLAUSE:

I like The Touch and Dare, but they really need to include the song that plays when the Cons board the earth shuttle and make space for a new toy li... er, unjustly kill all the classic autobots on board. Yeah. That's it. ;;)

I'm with Nickolai, If they are going to do the Touch, they should have Instruments of Destruction as the perfect counterpoint to it (that's the title of that awsome track that follows up Megatron saying "Let the slaughter begin!" for those 3 or 4 of you who may not know. Yes, as a matter of fact I do have the soundtrack for the 1986 movie...On CASSETTE no less, as well as CD. No, I will not mention how #$*@ old I am so smeg off!

I think that having "The Touch" on Guitar Hero or Rock Band would be great for a first timer to the games such as myself since it would allow for a slower start than some of the other tracks on those games.

Ah yeah, there, Instruments of Destruction! Thanks for the title. Know who the artist is, btw?

Spectre General would be the group responsible for that one. I have heard rumor that said band was an Alice Cooper side project back in the 80's but that rumor has yet to be confirmed so please don't quote me on that.

So where is that petition?? I'll sign once for myself and twice more on behalf of both of my kids since I know they'll go for it. :grin:

I enjoy the hell out of Stans work and even downloaded the tracks that SHOULD have made it onto the soundtrack of the last movie and then e-mailed RCA recordings to let them know that not including the tracks was a damn fool idea from a marketing standpoint.
I say let's get him onto RB, GH and the ROTF Soundtrack! Let's get as many signatures as we can and stuff them down the entertainment industrys collective throats until we get his work out into all the media forms we desire!

I really don't think this is Guitar Hero material. If there was a Keys Hero then it would work. I think tracks like the Theme or Instruments of Destruction would be better.

I have it on vinyl :-B My mum gave it to me (and the comic book adaptation) when we got back from the cinema.

Greatest day of my life *contented sigh*

Just... no.

Its bad enough that the series is already devolving down to b-sides as it is, I'm not having you fan-boys ruin the GH series for me with this crap.
