General RBN Song Request Thread

edited September 2013 in The Rock Band Network
Based on the 100+ pages of requests in TAG's request thread, it looks like people really want somewhere to request music for the RBN. Since TAG just announced they're booked into 2013, it seems like a new thread is called for.

So!

Got a band that you'd love to see in the RBN? Post about that band here. Video and MP3 links are a good idea to help educate authoring groups.

    already posted these in Tag's thread when it first started but might as well post them here again

    Manilla Road. most of their stuff is pretty old(ish) so i have no idea if there are still masters available. but on the bright side, they brought a new album out end of last year. so i guess that one should still have some :D

    Brocas Helm. anyone who played Brütal Legend should know this song. and IMO it's pretty much their worst song on the album ;) so i'd prefer myself to see other songs. but this one will already be a bit known by people who got Brütal Legend. so more chance of sales?

    Manowar. do these guys actually need an introduction? i remember hearing something that they were already gonna be on RBN but didn't? (not sure) still want them!

    I'll make a request.

    Los Campesinos! is an indie rock group from Canada who's biggest hit, "You! Me! Dancing!" would be a lot of fun on about everything on Rock Band.

    My old requests, although doubtful, still stand!
    Cipher_Peon;4624379 said:
    Since I dunno any major labels (and I'm still kinda hazy on what a label actually is), I just Wikipedia'd indie(ish) bands that had nothing to do with the ones you listed. Hopefully I'm not breaking the rules of the thread or anything ><

    Say Anything
    Stuck In The Sound
    Metric
    Baumer
    Matt & Kim
    Diablo Swing Orchestra

    Don't shoot me if I've done something stupid ;_;
    I would like to add Calling All Cars (preferably Reptile), Choo Choo La Rouge (preferably Here Comes The Guns), Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros (preferably Home), and NOFX (preferably Soul Doubt).
    Also more The Limousines, Freezepop, Anamanaguchi, Moving Picture Show, Lightwires would kick ass.

    Also music from my best friend Nucleose. His stuff is awesome and he's easily accessible and he's interested, but he doesn't want to make the first step by contacting an authoring group :I

    I only picked artists from labels I didn't recognize, but I dunno who owns what.

    Get me any song by The Camps. Literally any song is acceptable.

    Also echoing requests I made in the TAG thread;

    More All That Remains. For example, Not Alone, Six, We Stand would be tracks I'd like to see. Considering they've already put out songs through the RBN, I don't see why they wouldn't do it again.

    Seether. Same as above, already have songs through the RBN, so it seems likely that they'd be all over doing it again. It's too hard to narrow down individual songs I'd want, just get anything from the albums Finding Beauty In Negative Spaces and Karma And Effect.

    Carry On
    Nova Era
    Rebirth

    Cipher's already mentioned Diablo Swing Orchestra again, but I also want to point out that they put out a new album a couple months ago and it is, in my opinion, completely amazing (I don't know if it ever got mentioned in the old thread, I haven't been following it for a bit but I did check when the album came out).

    Some particular favorites:

    Voodoo, Mon Amour

    Guerilla Laments

    Mass Rapture

    Of Kali Ma Calibre

    The album appears to have been released under Candlelight Records (although Wikipedia's article on the band itself claims they've been under Ascendance since 2009).

    my first post in TAG's request thread is for someone to get more Ayreon (or some of Arjen's other work)

    you can contact him here. but it might take some convincing to get him on board because he lost money on the last song he released

    other bands I would love to see are...
    Blood Stain Child
    Apartment 26 (their first Album is on Hollywood Records which is owned by Disney don't know if it is possible to get... their second album is under Atlantic with is owned by Warner Music Group so that is a no-go)
    Behemoth
    Dimmu Borgir
    Blind Guardian
    Emigrate
    Hammerfall
    Freezepop
    Heaven Shall Burn
    Iced Earth
    Primus (or some Les Claypool solo work which is on his own independent label)
    Parry Gripp
    Reggie and the Full Effect
    SOiL
    Voltaire

    An awesome metal band, Vanisher, just released an awesome new album. You can hear an album teaser here, or just download it for free from the first link (their bandcamp). I believe they are independent, but sometimes it confuses me.

    I would like to throw my heartiest "hell yes" behind this idea. I would dig Rumble of the Diesel from Of Whales and Woe, but if you would rather make my wife swoon with joy you'll get Whamola from Purple Onion.

    I posted about them in TAG's thread a few weeks back, but I'd really like to see these guys pop up on RBN: Saint Motel. They're an indie pop/rock outfit with a pretty unique vintage-y sound who just released their first album Voyeur on the indie label On the Records a month ago. Here's some of my personal favorites off their new album and their previous EP:

    Puzzle Pieces
    1997
    Benny Goodman
    Butch
    To My Enemies

    I mentioned these in the TAG thread, but here they are again in case they're still out there for the taking.

    Music lovers who also happen to be computer graphics enthusiasts have at least heard of Animusic, and odds are they love the music as well as the graphics. While not every Animusic track would suit the game, I think some would be awesome to get, especially "Future Retro" and "Harmonic Voltage". As far as I can tell, composer Wayne Lytle, who also runs Animusic with partner David Crognale, has retained full ownership of his music. And, by sheer coincidence, Animusic just today (August 6th) launched a new Kickstarter project to help bring Animusic 3 to light. Now might be the perfect time to contact them, especially if they're looking for more publicity for their new material!

    While the Alan Parsons Project is tied to Arista, part of the Sony/BMG conglomerate of labels, Alan Parsons as a "solo" artist has published his last three albums on smaller labels: 1996's On Air, 1999's The Time Machine and 2004's A Valid Path. I understand music even from the '90s is often stored on analog studio masters, which could make the upfront costs rather steep. However, Parsons always was on the bleeding edge of music technology, and it wouldn't surprise me if he has everything digitized already anyway. Of course these smaller labels may still have distribution deals that bring them into the Big Four's web (and one of the labels later went bankrupt), but Parsons seems to have cleared at least enough legal hurdles to offer tracks from On Air and The Time Machine on his website. I would love to see any tracks from any of these three albums make it into the game. "Fall Free", "Press Rewind" and "More Lost without You" in particular would work well.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack's_Mannequin. Preferably stuff from their debut "Everything In Transit", but any would be awesome. Andrew McMahon is also the frontman for Something Corporate, which would be quite welcome as well.

    Also, Ben Folds (Ben Folds Five), but that might be asking a little too much. He is on Epic's label.

    Figure I'd give it a try since they'd most likely never be HMX DLC.

    YouTube doesn't do those justice. Now I need to pull out my DVD...

    Playability-wise, I think I'd go for Future Retro out of those two.

    I posted these in the other thread, but figure I'll try again here.

    Their first album (and EP) was released under their own record label, Redbird Records, but that has since been merged into Island Records, which is of course under Universal. So, I'm not sure if that means an automatic no, but I figured it'd be worth a shot. Anyway, they've had a few hits, the one you'd probably recognize is Love Me Dead from their second album "You're Awful, I Love You", but a few other notable songs are Good Will Hunting By Myself from their debut album, Go Getter Greg also from "You're Awful, I Love You", and Whipped Cream from their third album "Prepare The Preparations".

    The Classic Crime
    (MySpace | Facebook)
    They used to be signed under Tooth & Nail, which we've gotten bands from before, but their most recent album was funded through Kickstarter, which might make it easier to obtain. I've seen a few tour videos of theirs where they were playing Rock Band back stage, so I figure that might be a somewhat hint that they could be interested. Now for a few songs, The Fight and The Coldest Heart from their debut album "Albatross", Abracadavers from their second release "The Silver Cord", Four Chords from their third album "Vagabonds", and You and Me Both from their latest album "Phoenix".

    Also, since The Authority has sadly stopped, I was wondering if anyone could pick up
    Emery
    (MySpace | Facebook)
    We already have three tracks (Butcher's Mouth, The Cheval Glass, and Scissors), but I always hoped we'd get some of their earlier songs featuring their great harmonies and counter-melodies (The Ponytail Parades and The Weakest are good examples). But, if for some reason it is not possible to get stuff from when they were with Tooth & Nail (doesn't seem like it's been an issue in the past, and they're now on a subdivision of T&N), I'd more than gladly take anything more you can get from their most recent album (was hoping for The Curse of Perfect Days when they were initially released).

    Now as for smaller label stuff:

    Rise of Saturn
    (MySpace | Facebook)
    This 5-piece band, with 2 drummers and a trumpetist/lead singer from the Tampa Bay area has been self described as "nerdcore hip hop funky fusion rock = prog hop". They are currently on what is practically their own label (Mohawk Bomb Records), and just last year released their first album, Sex, Drugs, and Comic Books, and a music video. They are also trying to find a way to get their song The Last Box of Twinkies On Earth into the soundtrack for Zombieland 2, and are working on a second album. Before the release of their album, I had spoken to them about RBN, which they had definite interest in. So please check them out!

    Alright, so Animal Collective is releasing a new album in September, and their entire discography has been released on independent labels, so, authoring groups, you wanna try and get a song or two?

    Facebook
    Today's Supernatural (a track from their new album, Centipede Hz)

    Another request, emo/math band Dads. Completely independent, they've got three albums out (all on Bandcamp, one officially released just today). They're very talented, not just in the "this would be fun to play" way, but also the "this song sounds awesome" way.

    Bandcamp (probably the easiest way to contact them)

    Charon - Goth-ish metal or hard rock (not gonna debate it all day) band from Finland, somewhat comparable to H.I.M. Religious/Delicious was released as a single. At the End of Our Day would be my top pick. They're signed to Spinefarm.

    I would like to request a few things:

    1. more SikTh: I absolutely love them and I finally got a 360 so I can buy their only song but I would love to see some things from their first album like Pussyfoot (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4WL0RBk7jE) Their first album is on the label Unparalleled Carousel

    2. HORSE the Band: They are a Nintendocore band (yes, that is an actually genre, debatable of course). My favorite album by them, Desperate Living, is on Vagrant Records. My favorite song to see by them would be Shapeshift (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RF_v7ek5o-s)
