Thanks to SuperLowlander for the video :D

It's like a Tenacious D song sung in a British accent and handed off to the pianist from Jukebox the Ghost.

Only a dollar, fun on everything and just an awesome song.

If this doesn't end up on the RBN Highlights....

    I gotta say, he's pretty hilarious. I saw him on the Nostalgia Critic's Moulin Rogue crossover review a few months ago and looked him up. I really love these vids from him:

    If only he didn't mostly do covers, I'd totally buy more of his stuff!

    Yeah, I literally just now checked his Bandcamp and it's just a bunch of video game songs with lyrics.

    It's nice that he's not just simply dubbing over the original tracks, but I would love to hear him put out an all original-album.

    And I didn't know he did that Dr. Mario song. Heard that before. Awesome :)

    Yeah, the effort he puts into these songs are amazing!

    That's a good track. He's got some potential. In addition to the influences you noted, it also has a Rocky Horror era feel to it.

    I've been watching Brentalfloss since 2010. It makes me so happy that he's finally on the game. We need his "With Lyrics" material. Too bad I can't buy this though since I'm a Wii user. :(

    Also I really hope someone makes that full band video soon.

    The expert basic keys chart looks like it's riddled with bad charting decisions.

    That's why you need to upgrade to Pro like the rest of us.

    Seriously who plays basic keys?

    I'm still taking my baby steps to Pro Keys. Once I completely master regular keys, then it's Pro Keys time.

    Actually quite a few more than play pro keys, according to the leaderboards.

    Fitting a song that's as complex and chordy as this one into 5-lane is a thankless task. There's always a million different ways to represent everything and trying to get both motion accuracy and pitch consistency can lead to some weird-looking charts.

    *raises hand*

    Thought I'd get into pro initially since I played keys in a local band ages ago, but it's still way more fun to do what I've actually gotten pretty good at over the past 3 years, pro drums.

    I break out the keys occasionally for giggles or when I want to vox while playing, and I can't imagine pro-key-voxing on anything except Need You Tonight :p

    I was keyvoxing Shipwrecked just last night with a group and there's no way I could have kept up with it on pro keys, much less wearing the keytar and jumping around like a lunatic like I was... (playing Shipwrecked in this manner is HIGHLY recommended, BTW :) )

    Trust me, it won't help you too much. It's totally different. I recommend doing easy>medium pro keys for about a month and jumping to Hard when you feel comfortable :)

    Interesting. I dived straight in on Pro and have only played a handful of standard charts afterwards, usually on Guitar.

    that's because you actually have a keyboard, the reason there's so many more standard key scores is because everyone has a guitar, but not nearly as many people have a keyboard, so they play the standard keys track with their guitar controller.

    Ah, wasn't sure if the Guitar scores counted, since goals only unlock after playing a song on a Keyboard, no matter which instrument they were completed.

    I play pro keys, too, they just aren't as fun to me. I have my desk in my dorm with a keyboard right next to it where I play piano on and off all day, so, to be fair, I do know how to play just fine.

    I'm just rarely in the mood to play video games and music at the same time, if you know what I mean.

    Actually, he did just release an album and I believe it's all original (he'd probably have to pay massive licensing fees to record his covers for an album). I'm pretty sure this song is the appropriate opening track of the album.

    To respond to the OP, I've never been a huge fan of Brentalfloss, though being a huge gamer (from the Atari-NES era), I've watched most of his videos for amusement. I don't really think he's a very strong singer (though he can certainly carry a tune), and I'm happy to say I was pleasantly surprised by this song. The piano work is pretty amazing, and the guitar solo is pretty sweet, too.

    I always play basic keys when I first pick up a song, just to try out the chart. Then I play pro keys on the song from then on.

    You basically just described Alestorm's live performance. I thoroughly recommend seeing them if you haven't :P

    On topic, been a brentalfan for a few years, definitely picking this track up. I can't really see any other brentalfloss song making it the game though, if only for a lack 100% original content that involves a full band.

    I guessed that from the video. ;)

    *googles Alestorm tour dates*
    *is surprised to find US dates*
    *is not surprised to find the closest one is still 270 miles (433 km) away and they're just an opening act for Epica*
    *sigh*
    It's WAY too rare for anything worth seeing to get to where I am :(

    Well, Brentalfloss made a video of the full band chart of this, but sadly, it's not the entire song. I hope someone can make a full band video of the entire song soon.

    If it comes to PS3 I'll try and see if I can make a video of it. I've been trying to get some video capture software for a while now, so I'll see. If not I can always use my DVD recorder.

    I really want this song to come out on ps3, Ive been waiting a month and a half, hoping that it would be released onto the ps3. If anyone agrees that his song should be on ps3, then show it, cuz "this is the song that I've been waiting for"! :)
