Band Hero shares instruments, DLC and gameplay features with the Guitar Hero series of games so shouldn't it be counted as part of that series?
When will the bass drop

To play Devil's Advocate on this, though, the "Hero" in Band Hero certainly implies that it is part of the overall Music Hero franchises. Would you vote to include DJ Hero 1 and 2, or, would you exclude them? Yes, they play differently, but, the overall feel and look of the games is very much part of the Music Hero franchises.

Personally, I hesitated a little on this but the reasoning is sound here. I did see our counter part includes them all except the Dj hereos in the same game series, but I wouldn't be opposed to putting those in as well.
