Months ago, I had an idea for the next Guitar Hero game and I wanted to base the story on todays generation or rather the change in the music.Bands selling out, hearing more of the same(most of the time), spirit of rock is dying. I wanted to have this game to be more like GH2 and GH3.
Title - Guitar Hero: Rebirth
Premise: From the "Band" ending of GHWT, the band has sold themselves out, only to fall prey to Lu's trap, through temptation and false hope for eternal fame an fortune. Ultimately, bands have sold themselves to the devil for fame and foretune, killing the spirit of rock. Only a few true rockers have seen this tragedy and became disgusted by this obsenity. Lars, Axel, Judy, and a new rocker(user made character) will have to step up and fight this force that is destroying the spirit of rock and bring on the rebirth.
Opening: Taking place after Guitar Hero 2 and before Guitar Hero 3, in the dead of night Psychobilly, a warrior of rock battles Lu at a graveyard for thefate of rock. The fight seemed endless and just when Billy was about t o gain the upperhand, Lu cheated by sending his minions after him, causing the rocker to lose the battle and was ultimately killed.
Career Intro: Fast foward,after Guitar Hero World Tour, most of the cast have sold out and living the luxury without a care in the world. Lars, Judy, Axel urged them to stand up and bring back true rock, after seeing what has become of the music. But everyone refused, rather live the easy life than living true. Eventually, they heard news of a new rock(player) was arrested for breaking into a music company building and "tagged" exspensive items in protest against big music companies killing of the music and freedom to rock on. The three decided to break him/her out of jail and share on the path to bring back true spirit of rock, as it should be.
*Note: Lu's minions are actually upstarts who claim to be rockers, rather posuers, but only to make bad music and sell their souls to Lu for fame and money. They are nothing more than fakers than true rockers and know nothing about the basics nor the spirit of rocking out.

That's pretty much my idea for the next Guitar Hero Game, for now. I would like to try for DLC, but someone else has made an excellent list of songs, and I've already complimented him on that.
Changes had been made(adding and switching songs), a little bit, but this is what I would like to see, as a fan of Guitar Hero.
Love the idea but you got to remember the game is sold world wide not just the US.
So it makes it hard to produce a setlist to make people buy a particular game
Good idea, kinda similar to my idea that I posted on this forum not long ago.
Erm, the idea was alright.
I still think cutting back the fat and going back to absolute basics would work best for a reboot.
Rebirth really isn't the best title, though.
I like 'Encore' or 'Finale' better.
An "Encore" or "Finale" title would imply an end rather than a beginning. Most of us fans want GH to continue not fade again, and having a title that sounds like an end doesn't elicit a whole lot of enthusiasm going in. I think going back to basics would be good if a new game was released more than a couple years from the last game. At this point I think people are hoping for more rather than less, or some small improvements-perhaps being able to restart a song without backing out during band play. Definitely more dlc.
I think there needs to be better DLC, not piles of rubbish.
I never stuck with RB3 after the Career mode, purely because the DLC was lacking.
From all songs, I only ever downloaded 'Still Alive' and 'White Knuckles'.
Whereas, I have imported quite a few songs from the GH store and download a few others, too.
Well rubbish to one is awesomeness to another. The only way to make the most people happy is to make all sorts of music available. We decide what we buy, don't buy the rubbish.
