Friday by Rebecca Black: Let's Make This Happen

I've been looking into this and I think it might be possible to do this. Ark Music Factory owns the publishing rights while Black owns the masters. Here are the emails to AMF:

Press and Media Inquiries:
Email: [email]pw@arkmusicfactory.com[/email]

General Information:
Email: [email]info@arkmusicfactory.com[/email]

Black's manager is Debra Baum of db Entertainment Group. Her email on her site is [email]info@debrabaum.com[/email]

I don't know for sure who you would need to contact, Baum or AMF, depending on whether you'd need to get permission from whoever owns the publishing rights. You would need to get the masters from Black, I do know that.

What you can do: If you work with an authoring group you can see about getting a deal. If you don't work with a group you can show your support to them for getting the song released.

    It's not like you're going to be forced to buy it. And it's not like we'd be getting it in place of something "better". So don't complain.

    yes, because the worst song EVER written needs to be on rockband... our efforts would be better spent attempting to kill ourselves... or, at least, getting better bands... by better, i mean anything. ANYTHING else.

    1. Musical taste is subjective.
    2. You wouldn't have to buy it or even acknowledge it's availability for Rock Band.
    3. If an authoring group were to put a deal with Led Zeppelin on hold to make this happen I'd see your logic, but that probably won't be the case.
    4. Authoring groups are capable of working with more than one artist at a time.

    I don't care if it's released but it would be another point in favor of those that believe RBN is a joke to most people and severely diminishes the efforts of actual bands trying to make some money and exposure

    Quite tired of all the joke songs and mock bands that get released on RBN

    Don't tell me whether to complain or not. If a two word post can be considered "complaining", that is.

    You're not my mother.

    I never want to see this show up under new songs on a Thursday, when RBN songs are released. I'd laugh 'till I die!

    The thing is, where do we draw the line. I find JoCo a talented musician, even though most of his work would be considered novelty. The point is, if someone wants to Nom, they can, if they want to pick up some great indie stuff like Felsen, or some chart toppers like Higher, Paralyzer and Blue, they can do that too

    Only if it is Brock's Dub.

    I'm sure it can work somehow.

    I prefer the Death Metal or (Worse Version). But that one's good too.

    as much as everyone on these forums would complain, if released in the near future it would be one of the biggest sellers on RBN

    also i would be the first to buy it....im always looking for good drunken party songs

    Agreed

    The novelty has worn off.

    Waste of time.

    Better idea: Ice Cube's "Friday."

    While we're on the topic of "novelty"-ish stuff, someone should contact Nickelodeon and get the good Spongebob songs for some reason we never got through regular DLC.

    This would probably be the best thing ever released. EVER.
