I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  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. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  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 XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  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"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

All the songs mentioned sound would be great. I would love to have some Guns N' Roses songs, yeah I know its a long shot, but I want to rock out to Estranged or November Rain. I also wouldn't mind the Velvet Revolver songs from Guitar Hero 3, especially Messages (love that song).

It's primarily vocals and mandolin, at least for the minute or so I could tolerate it. I don't think it would really be well-suited for the game.

Can't view that particular video at work, but it has all the instruments required in the studio version. The manodlin lines could be combined with the guitar bits like they have done with some keyboardy songs.

Next week is the ENTIRE Screaming For Vengeance album! You gotta nother thing comin!

Maybe, I'm just saying, that first two minutes would be boring as hell for the drummer and bassist. Not really a good "band" song.

Judas Priest is the first full album DLC? Meh. I say to you, meh. But at least they're finally starting with the albums.

Its more a guitar/vocal song, I admit, but there's some kickin' drum bits. Hell, I don't think Maps even had a bassine orginally. Some songs are just like that.

Yeah, I love Gouge Away, will def. be getting that one. Cars, meh. JUDAS MOTHERhugIN PRIEST!

I would really have liked a greatest hits since most of my friends I play with aren't as intimately familiar with the Priest catalogue, but bully for me. Something like:

Better By You Better By Me
Breakin' The Law
Living After Midnight
Turbo Lover
Electric Eye
You Got Another Thing Coming
Metal Gods
Painkiller

I totally forgot to include my #1 wish which will never happen. Life of Agony's Love To Let You Down:


www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOvFNWBcYUc

(can't view Youtube at work, hope the link works)

Yes I know this is from their latest album and is a bit Velvet Revolverish and yes, most hardcore LOA fans would prefer something from River Runs Red, but dammit I love this song and would fit on the game perfectly.

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
1970s: Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
1980s: The Cure - Pictures of You
1980s: They Might Be Giants - Ana Ng
1990s: Presidents of the USA - Lump
2000s: Jimmy Eat World - The Middle
2000s: Flaming Lips - The W.A.N.D. (Parental Advisory: One f-bomb!)

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 would just like to point out that of the 7 main songs I suggested, three are now officially announced for Rock Band 2: Psycho Killer, Lump, and The Middle. Plus we've gotten more Pixies (ALL of Doolittle), we're getting a Beck song (E-Pro), and at least one Devo song (Uncontrollable Urge, which was my top request for them), plus more to come, AND more girl-vocal stuff.

So, yeah, I just wanted to point out that I'm awesome. Or that Harmonix is. Either way, I'm very happy.

My friend suggested a one hit wonders DLC pack from the 90s, including Flagpole Sittah. I can get behind that.

Also, two songs I picked, Go Your Own Way and Painkiller made it, as well as AC/DC, Megadeth, Beck and Elvis Costello (not the song I picked, but still).

I can't believe how many of the songs that have been suggested ended up in the game.

Aqualung, Beastie Boys, Journey, AC/DC, Beck, The Offspring, and others are all on the disc. A lot of them are the requested songs as well.

Another possible request filled is Cake, who's manager sent out an e-mail saying that they currently have a couple of songs licensed to Rock Band but Harmonix wants to use the Distance but the band would prefer something else.
