I was looking at purchasing EZ Drummer 2. There is a special where you get one free expansion pack. I wasn't expecting such a massive variety of expansions -- especially ones named very similarly.

I play mostly blue-rock type such, inspired by bands such as Guns N roses, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, etc. I also play some punk and a little metal. If I wanted to grab an expansion that would be versatile for all of these styles, but primarily for blues-rock, what would you recommend?

Thanks everyone!

I removed Metalheads, as it supposedly doesn't come with grooves in the same fashion as the other expansions. If the regular EZ Drummer doesn't come with any double bass grooves, I should probably pick up one that does, so that would probably limit me to Made of Metal, Metal!, or Metal Machine.

the stock kits in EZ2 are really versatile. I have several of the EZX and I can tell you that I really HATE the snares in Rock Solid. The Vintage EZX is too "vintage" for my taste, but I'm not much of a classic rock guy.
I tend to use Nashville for a lot of projects, I dig that black beauty snare samples in that one.
It's true that Metal Heads does not come with grooves, the midi is more like big chunks of songs.

Thanks. I have read a lot of different people saying how Nashville is very versatile for many genres.

The Nashville has surpassed my expectations for versatility, but I don't really do metal or punk. Don't really do country, either. It has very usable grooves.

The Vintage Rock was, IMO, underwhelming. Again, different strokes.
