Lego Rock Band 2 (63 songs, all with tiers)

edited December 2012 in Your Ultimate Setlist
This my first attempt at an LRB setlist, and I made this whole thing (from actually making the list to posting here) in three days (I'm pretty proud of that. Hopefully the tiers are pretty accurate).

Before looking at the actual setlist, here are some notes:

About tiers: A lot of these probably looked over-tiered (specifically in the bass department). This is because, like in the first Lego Rock Band, I sort of tiered the songs "against each other," I guess is the best way to say it. There are exactly 9 songs for each difficulty for each instrument, so I had to make them fit. I hope that makes sense. I did try to put these in order by band difficulty, but that may be completely screwed up.

Also, I may or may not redo this in the future with Pro Tiers. I don't have them on here now because I was literally halfway through listening to all the songs before I even thought about doing pro-parts, and I was too lazy to go back and look up tabs for all of them. Also, I completely neglected to listen for harmonies in all the songs, so I sort of just guessed if each song had a part just off memory, so a lot may be wrong.

About song choice: Because this is Lego Rock Band, I went with a more family-friendly setlist—meaning more modern or pop/rock songs, so if you're a huge metalhead or something, you may not think this looks too great. I'm not exactly sure what is considered “family friendly” lyrics, so I considered any song that didn't have profanity, explicit references to sex/drugs/alcohol, excessive violence (I was going to use “Israel's Son” by Silverchair originally, which was stupid on my part), or anything that would make me feel awkward if my little brother was singing it. Some may still be pushing it ("Gigantic," "The Archers' Bows...", "I Gotta Feeling," etc.), but I don't have a problem with it. I tried to make this as realistic as possible, but maybe there are some that wouldn't make it—“New Born,” “Let It Be,” “Winter Wrap-Up” (a guy can dream, right?)

    No pro strings tiers is one thing, but having tiers for basic keys and then NO PART for pro keys is kind of lolwut.

    *facepalm*. Okay, apparently I didn't realize that basic keys and pro keys are always the same. Stupid on my part. Just imagine the pro keys are there, because I don't feel like retiering every song on here. Hopefully everything else looks good.

    They're not. Basic and pro drums are always the same, as are solo and harmony vox. Basic and pro keys can be different. It's just that if one is present, the other has to be, too. That's actually an RBN charting rule.

    I think you've overtiered new born. I know its lego rock band, but it wouldn't be that difficult :P Here's my interpretation, what do you think? Also, they're classed as alternative.

    Nice job on the setlist by the way, very nice, varied. Would buy! :D

    Incorrectly so. They are in fact New Prog.

    As for the setlist... hell yeah I'd buy this! Sure, some songs aren't exactly Lego Rock Band material (Zombie is about an actual bombing that killed three or so kids) but I don't freaking care! I'd even play the brony song, even if I try not to get involved with the stuff.

    I didn't even know that was a genre... I just left it as alternative

    New Prog mixes elements of alternative and prog rock. Bands such as Coheed and Cambria and The Mars Volta are New Prog. It's mostly a term loosely tied around modern prog rock bands, though.

    I'd have to pick this up. Granted, there are some god awful songs, but also some AMAZING songs and I definitely think the good outweighs the bad in this situation :)

    Um I highly doubt we'd get the cover art for Pixies' Surfer Rosa visible in regular Rock Band, let alone Lego Rock Band.

    Yeah, considering they censored the "Enema of the State" album art for Aliens Exist in the first L:RB, and that didn't show that much nudity, just boobs.

    Eh, well, I'm not too worried about it. Sorry, but I'm not going back to fix every song on here.
    There is harmonies in I'll Be There For You.
    Once again, I didn't really listen for harmonies. Thanks for pointing it out, though. I'll go back and fix it.

    Gracias!
    I do see that maybe keys and drums are not devil difficulty, but I think everything else is okay for Lego Rock Band (besides vocals, because I have no idea how to tier them anyway. Most of these are just guesses.)

    [QUOTE]As for the setlist... hell yeah I'd buy this! Sure, some songs aren't exactly Lego Rock Band material (Zombie is about an actual bombing that killed three or so kids) but I don't freaking care! I'd even play the brony song, even if I try not to get involved with the stuff.
    Glad you like it. I did realize that Zombie may not have kid-friendly meaning, but it doesn't state anything too explicitly--just mention of their tanks and their bombs and their bombs and their guns, etc.

    Glad you like it as well. I did include the "god-awful" songs because, it definitely looks like there are more pop songs being released in RB (Fireflies and Call Me Maybe this year, half the stuff in Blitz).

    Wow...okay, I didn't observe that cover art well enough to notice the boobies, I don't guess. Well, that's why RB has this beautiful picture.

    Also, here are the year and genre breakdowns. I usually post these at the beginning, but I didn't this time.

    50s- 1
    60s- 5
    70s- 9
    80s- 9
    90s- 12
    00s- 16
    10s- 11

    Alternative- 7
    Classic Rock- 9
    Country- 1
    Emo- 1
    Glam- 1
    Grunge- 1
    Indie- 4
    Metal- 4
    New Wave- 3
    Nu-Metal- 2
    Other- 1
    Pop/Dance/Electronic- 1
    Pop-Rock- 8
    Prog- 2
    Punk- 2
    Rap/Hip Hop- 1
    Reggae/Ska- 2
    R&B, etc- 2
    Rock- 11

    And just for the heck of it, here are the 3 hardest songs for each instrument (in my opinion)

    Band: 1) Fury Of The Storm 2) Anthem 3) Canned Heat
    Guitar: 1) Fury Of The Storm 2) Anthem 3) Do It Again
    Bass: 1) Anthem 2) Fury Of The Storm 3) Magic Dance
    Drums: 1) Fury Of The Storm 2) Anthem 3) The Archers' Bows Have Broken
    Keys: 1) Fury Of The Storm 2) Oye Como Va 3) Do It Again
    Vocals: 1) Think 2) Grace Kelly 3) King Without A Crown

    As I explained earlier, Muse is in fact New Prog, a recent subset of prog rock that has some elements of alternative. You can use either, but the original genre was fine.
