@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

A spin off of the Rock Band thread. What songs and bands do you hope to see added to the game?

Cake - Never There Link to song
Dispatch - Time Served This is the best sounding version I could find of the song
Reel Big Fish - The Set Up Link
Beastie Boys - Gratitude Link
REM - Exhuming McCarthy It's quiet but it's all I could find

edit: Added song links

I was actually wondering how they'd do the Peter Frampton voxtar bit the other day if they did it.

Don't Stop Believing.
Led Zeppelin if they can get it.
Megadeth.
Go Your Own Way Fleetwood Mac
That Heart Song (Yeah, I'm down for some lady tracks)
Love Shack
Type O - Black No. 1
Thunderkiss 65
AC/DC
Beatles pay up!
Some cartoon theme songs, either the covered versions from that album a few years ago originals.
Speaking of The Orginals, Spinal Tap
Elvis Costello - Olliver's Army
Rancid
Operation Ivy, particularly Knowledge
On a ska tip, how about some Aquabats! Look at Me I'm a Winner.
Ramallah - Kill a Celebrity
TMBG for the geek crowd Statue Got Me High?
On the geek tip, Ultimate Showdown
Machine Head - Davidian
More Maiden is always good. Something not expected, like Out of the Silent Planet.
I really wish there was more rock'n'rap that didn't suck. Public Enemy/Anthrax.
But there's alway Kid Rock, I suppose. I could do up some Bawaiitidiittever or American Bad Ass.


I can and will go all day if you don't stop me.

I would go out and buy Rock Band right now if they had some Type O Negative songs, even though I don't have a console to play it on. (I know there's a PS2 version, but without the DLC, what's the point?)

Okay, when putting this together I tried to think about what makes a good Rock Band song: ideally, something that's fun to play with others, that's primarily guitar/bass/drums/vocals, and that has strong melodies for all parts. Also tried to keep it under 10 major suggestions, and add links and comments, so this won't just be a thread with a bunch of lists. icon-hotrod.gif


1950s: Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode

Rock Band currently only goes back to the late 1960s, IIRC. "Johnny B. Goode" is a great early rock song that everyone knows, and it'd be a blast at a party.


1970s: Talking Heads - Psycho Killer

A great song with clean tones and unusual rhythms. May have one too many overdubbed guitars, but I think it'd work.


1980s: The Cure - Pictures of You

The game needs more slow songs, and let's face it, some Cure. This is one of their hits that's dominated more by guitar and bass than keyboard. The original might be too long at 7:45 (and the vocalist would get way bored for the first two minutes), but this single edit would work.


1980s: They Might Be Giants - Ana Ng

I think this one has the least chance of making it, but I can't help suggesting a TMBG song (and hey, there's a lot of crossover between TMBG-geeks and gamer-geeks), and this seems like the best choice. Mainly guitar-driven, unusual timing, great music and melody, definitely a Rock Song.


1990s: Presidents of the USA - Lump

Again, great party song. Short and sweet.


2000s: Jimmy Eat World - The Middle

One of the best clean guitar riffs of the last ten years, and a big hit song. The perfect Jimmy Eat World track to include.


2000s: Flaming Lips - The W.A.N.D. (Parental Advisory: One f-bomb!)

Based around a great riff, very distinct instrumentation, complex-ish drums, and even handclaps! Just edit out that one swear, and I think it'd be great. Plus it's in commercials now, which is how the kids hear the music these days, so it should be familiar.


And many others, of course. More REM (What's the Frequency Kenneth?), more Clash (London Calling?), more Pixies (U-Mass? Debaser?). Green Day and U2 are obvious, they've got dozens of perfect songs for this. As cliched as it is to ask for Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, AC/DC and the Beatles, while they're not among my favorites, they'd certainly work well. I love Beck and eels and Devo and Robyn Hitchcock, but I don't think their hits are well-suited for the game. Maybe some more girl-vocal stuff, like Elastica - Connection, Liz Phair - Never Said, more Garbage or some Heart. Some cheesy hair-ballads like Sister Christian and Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Maybe some bass-driven songs from Primus. There's just so much...

I am both surprised and pleased to see two people mention TMBG songs. I left them off my list cause I thought it would be too farfetched; I guess more people like them than I give credit for.

Its hard to find TMBG songs that a) have a Bass and b) dont concentrate on keyboards/horns/bells. :/ Cyclops Rock might work, but its not what you'd call one of their classics. Spy could be interesting, have 6 or 7 minutes of Big Rock Ending at the end for the complete TMBG live show experience. XD

I had been looking for videos but forgot how to embed.
All of the songs that you linked to are wholeheartedly supported by me.

Recharge, for some rap how about something like The Roots? All instruments represented

Beck - Loser
This might depend on how the sitar sounding part gets charted.

Eagles of Death Metal - Speaking in Tounges
This would be very fun to sing if we got to do the actual speaking in tongues part in the middle.

Electric Six - Rock and Roll Evacuation
This is the only version I could find with just the cd version of the song

If we got Dance Epidemic I would want pleasing interlude I to lead into it. I don't care if it would be pretty boring for the instruments, it's funny enough to make up for it.

TMBG for the geek crowd Statue Got Me High?

I would buy all of the above if they were offered as DLC. That's one RBF song that could actually work well without a "Trumpet Hero" controller, and it's bouncy as hell. Not my favorite REM song, but good. Journey and Love Shack would be good party songs. I dunno about Statue as a TMBG representation, but I'd take what I could get. icon-hotrod.gif Oliver's Army is a good Costello song, though I'd probably prefer Radio Radio.

You were surprised I mentioned TMBG? Have you SEEN my username? icon-hotrod.gif

Yeah, among their songs that could even come close to being considered "hits," most rely on keyboards or accordion a lot. That's why I went with Ana Ng. Oh, and I guess Boss Of Me is a song people would know... though it's one of a very few TMBG songs I actively dislike. But like I said... I'd take anything.

The Roots are a good idea. I don't know much of their stuff, but the fact that they play as a full band is a good way to sneak in some hip-hop.

Loser... much as I dig it, I think it'd be a boring song to play in Rock Band. The music never changes. Too many of Beck's popular songs are kinda the same way--one riff, one beat, repeat.

...you thought a board full of geeks don't like TMBG? Perhaps you're also on the fence to mention Anime and D&D?

I'm not even a huge fan, but I like them ok and know tons of people who go nuts for em. I wouldn't mind seeing the geek quotient satisfied, and the king of geek bands is probably the way to go.

Journey wouldn't surprise me, they already have a song in Guitar Hero so they're willing to let their songs be in the game.

On Beck, that was a problem I was trying to get around. Most of his songs would be fun to sing but it would be wiser to pick one of his more mainstream songs. Loser was one of the better songs because there is the main riff but there is also the sitar part which could change things up a bit. On drums its repetitive but it sounds pretty interesting. Roam is similar when it comes to drums, it barely changes things up at all. Bass is the only glaring boring point but there are lots of songs in the game that neglect the bass.
