The RB3 Upgrade Request Thread

edited September 2011 in The Rock Band Network
Do you have a favorite RBN1 era song that you want to play in RB3 with keys and harmonies?

Harmonix has no control over this whatsoever - it's entirely up to the authors. However, this thread is a good place to let the authors know what songs you want to see upgraded.

(Also, PS3 players: this is a good place to list RBN1 songs that were never ported, since they would need a new version in order to be eligible for porting. However, being updated for RB3 is no guarantee that a song will be ported to PS3, as there are a number of factors at work here.)

    The Guild feat. Felicia Day- Do You Wanna Date My Avatar
    All of the Flight of the Conchords songs
    Jonathan Coulton- Re: Your Brains
    Evanescence- Going Under

    Except for songs from my absolute favorite artists, I generally don't even consider buying a song unless it has either pro guitar or pro keys.

    Both of the of Montreal songs deserve RB3 versions, I refuse to buy them until they do.

    Jonathan Coulton- Re: Your Brains

    Sadly, that was HMX DLC. I would gladly pay for a RB3 Version of that.

    Also,

    Lexington (Joey Pea Pot With A Monkey Face) - Choidos
    The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny - Lemon Demon

    Seriously, freaking listen to that keys section in Ultimate Showdown. I WANT TO PLAY IT.

    EDIT: Fixed the link. You can hear the keys very clearly in this one. The RBN Mix just has those turned down quite a lot.

    Out of everything in the RBN, the absolute BIGGEST one that jumps out at me is definitely:

    "Going Under" by Evanescence

    ARGH, IT NEEDS KEYS AND HARMONIES SOOOOOOO BAD ><

    "The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny" and "Creatures ov Deception" would be cool too :3

    Hey wait, weren't there a slew of Freezepop songs at the end of RBN1? I want those

    All i want is all the Main Drag songs & Bizzaro Genius Baby by MC Frontalot (great keys and the harmonies would be awesome)

    Special Effects was the song. But still, I'd love for more Freezepop besides the 2 in RBN to pop up every now and then.

    This list mostly contains songs that didn't make it over in RBN 1.0 format and they don't necessarily benefit from the addition of harmonies and keys. Of course, some songs on the list do and would be awesome with those things added.


    * Stagehands - "Welcome To Our Town"
    * Sybreed - "Doomsday Party"
    * Van Friscia - "Epic Symphony..." - PARTS 1 & 2
    * A Wilhelm Scream - "Skid Rock"
    * Widespread Panic - "Chilly Water"
    * Alchemilla - "Bleeder"
    * Ron Wasserman - "Fight Back"
    * Affiance - "Call Of The Warrior"
    * Valient Thorr - "Doublecrossed"
    * Bornholm - "When The Light Was Born"

    Since Free Spirit already has their tracks RB3 Version. Widespread Panic would have to be a sure choice. And all of their songs.
  • edited August 2011
    - Every Amberian Dawn song (especially the ones that were never ported over to the PS3).
    - The First and Second Movements of Van Friscia's Epic Symphony
    - Special Effects by Freezepop
    - Whatever Is Wrong With You by Marillion
    - Dawn of a Million Souls by Ayreon
    - Hyperbole by Glass Hammer
    - Herlathing by Morgawr
    - Army of the Damned by Pythia

    My own wishlist includes:

    "Electricity Is In My Soul" - Steam Powered Giraffes
    "Dream About The Future" - The Apples in Stereo
    "Beautiful Machine" - Rose of Jericho
    "End of This" - Scratching the Itch

    ...and probably all 17 songs by The Main Drag.

    Yeah, I love me some harmonies and keys.
    You know I agree with you on "Electricity Is In My Soul," Lachesis. (We were just talking about this yesterday on Creators.) However, it doesn't look too likely, based on my conversation with the author/lead robot. Maybe if "Brass Goggles" sells extremely well and the band sees a spike in popularity. Also, he said he will likely chart a song from their upcoming album. So, at least 2/3 SPG songs will have keys/harmonies!

    Such a cute song, would love to have it with keys.

    Definitely. I love Freezepop so much more than I probably should.

    I sorta want to do my song as an RB3 version, just for a chance to get it on PS3...

    metalcharter: (if metalcharter still exists)

    PLEEEEEAAASE do Bornholm - Where the Light Was Born, think of how epic the ending would be, with keyboards and everything. It would be amazing.

    Fang Island's Daisy would be even better in rb3 mode. Sunny Day Real Estate would have sweet harmonies, especially In Circles.

    Shylo Elliott - Far Wanderings (Always felt weird playing this song on guitar.)

    Huh. That's a surprising request. I'm not sure how possible that one is, given that the song was actually composed for guitar, but I can ask.

    Shylo's talked about possible RB3 versions before...is there any demand for those? I'd be glad to go back and add keys to those songs, but only if people want it. Maybe the most likely song to upgrade would be P.W.M.O., as it was written with an organ in mind.

    I think Sonata Arctica's song Flag in the Ground would benefit from the addition of Keys and Harmonies. Infact the solo currently on the guitar is a keys solo if I'm not mistaken.

    Edit. part of the solo is keys.

    Is it okay to ask for RB3 versions of the Gaslight Anthem songs that were never released?...
