Though I am sure these are not the MAIN REASONS, they are MAJOR reasons why old songs (Banya,K-Pop, to a lesser extent, Pre-Pop) won't be back.

When I visited Andamiro, I brought up how foreign players missed old school songs (Funky Jockey, Trash Man, Holiday) they pointed out that...

1. They never really liked the Extra mixes (Not produced by them, technically speaking)
2. Certain artists (e.g. Metallica, Madonna) have said something along the lines of... "Our music is TOO GOOD for this game,"
   OR
"By putting our songs into the game, they lose their overall value" (i.e. More money in buying the albums which feature the song, than the money for playing the song   ($15-$20 an album > $1 per game)


Taiji, however, is a different story.  It isn't certain that Taiji said his music is too good for Pump, OR if the value of his songs are lost by featuring them in the game.  My best guess is, he eventually requested his music no longer to be in future mixes.

Yahpp said that Taiji just wanted too much money for his music than what Andamiro was wanting to give.  Purely a monetary issue on his part.

I remember when the Debbie Scott song Kiss Me first came out i was like what is this crap but when it became a pump song it grew onto me. I know there is a lot of songs in piu that i would have never cared for if there were not in the game. Honestly who was blasting songs like Monkey Magic before they played it. Sometimes it can give the artists good exposure.

hahahaha!!! oh yeah~~ wouldnt it be interesting if they had a machine of just like Taiji songs? or like a mix of Taiji songs with like Crash or something? that way they could get the actual artists involved (and boost their egos about a whole game to themselves)

What about AMs excuse for losing the Rebirth songs... or better yet the shiny Andamiro logo featured on Rebirth and Premiere 2 (which costed them what? Nothing to keep?)

"Uh we got rid of that new logo because... well the guy who made it pissed us off!" - it'd be funny if that was the reason... because the white and orange one that pops up on mixes before and after Rebirth/Premiere 2 is just err bland.

And your telling me AM never liked Extra mix because they didn't make it? BS! All the songs need is some new BGAs that match the title images (I don't know WHY AM hasn't done this yet....) and some steps for other modes and all is good...

Well, the reason AM does not "favor" Extra is because F2 was responsible for it.  I'm sure everyone out there is aware of the "vendetta" or "issues" between AM and F2, so let's just leave it at that, it's what Yahpp and Korean Supporters have said to me personally.
