GandWuser's Lego Rock Band 2

edited February 2013 in Your Ultimate Setlist
OK so a while back I made a Lego Rock Band 2 setlist. I was going to make tiers for it, but I got lazy. I know there are a few possibly objectionable choices on here (Dancing With Myself, Falling To Pieces, Canned Heat), but I don't think they're bad enough to not barely squeeze onto the game. On the plus side, I also tried to avoid "kiddy bait" songs, and I think I did well besides maybe The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything and that Demi Levato song (hey, it's not bad! shut up!) So here are 49 songs, sorted by band difficulties (which make no damn sense).

Ed Sheeran - "Lego House" (Alternative, 2011)
Kelly Clarkson - "Since U Been Gone" (Pop-Rock, 2004)
Liam Lynch - "United States Of Whatever" (Rock, 2003)

Joe Esposito - "You're The Best" (Pop-Rock, 1984)
They Might Be Giants - "Birdhouse In Your Soul" (Alternative, 1990)
Tiny Tim - "Livin' In The Sunlight, Lovin' In The Moonlight" (Other, 1968)

Solid

Best Coast - "The Only Place" (Indie Rock, 2012)
Bis - "Kandy Pop" (Indie Rock, 1996)

    Seeing that the initial idea of Lego Rock Band was more family friendly then regular RB, this setlist has far too many unknowns to be even something to consider.

    I seriously doubt a song about denying religion ("Freewill" by Rush) would be on LEGO Rock Band 2.

    Did you ever read the explanation I gave for band tiers?

    Also, I'd buy this setlist, though I agree that there's a few too many small-name acts for LRB, which I feel was for child friendly hits from the past and present. Still though, Since U Been Gone. Can't argue with that.

    Heh, you're probably right. Got any suggestions for a similar song that could replace it?

    Also I'm sorry my setlist has many unknowns. All my setlists seem to end up that way. :(

    I know about 90% of the artists.

    How about any one of these:

    Oh no, not you. You're that guy who posts "Marry The Mole" and "Detachable Penis" in all of the family-friendly threads. I'm sorry, but I'm not going to click any of those links because I know I'd be wasting my time.

    But hey, at least you know like 90% of these artists.

    Decided to check them after you, and I was right on what the first two were.

    Damn, there's some good songs on here! Jungle Love, Mr. Blue Sky, Hot Hot Hot, Run-Around, Our House, Mexican Radio...I could go on! I would have preferred the original version of Major Tom though.
    And it would certainly be interesting to see the charts for the Tiny Tim song, they would definitely be weird.

    Also, you spelled the Poindexter in Buster Poindexter wrong. And you spelled Lovato wrong too.

    I somehow doubt that "Dancing With Myself" would be on a Lego Rock Band game. I think I heard somewhere that that song is about masturbation.

    Anyways, I'd play these songs....

    I'm pretty sure I've heard it's not actually about mastubation, but rather, a lonely Japanese kid dancing with himself.

    This is my new favorite thing ever (as long as I'm getting the reference right).

    The lonely Japanese kid is a reference to Turning Japanese, another song that is commonly thought to be about masturbation.

    Oh, right. Forgot about that.

    You know for a thread about a proposed kid's game there sure is some... erm, "frank" talk gong on.

    This forum isn't exactly a kid's forum, right?

    I'm also a bit fuzzy on whether Major Tom would be considered kid-friendly as he supposedly "dies" towards the end, but ends up being alive. That's probably a crap reason, but Llama ended up being Supervision Recommended when the only thing bad about it is that the lyrics imply blowing up a hilltop, but the wording of it is so complex that I don't see why a kid would understand that.

    I don't see how Low Rider is Supervision Recommended either.

    Llama is about rebel soldiers killing each other. Also, Low Rider has a bunch of drug references ("The low rider is a little higher", "take a little trip"). Though by this logic, I should replace Cosmic Egg because of the phrase "light up and cast your feelings" during a part that talks about a "gallery of lights". Anyone want to help with that?

    Really? Llama is about rebel soldiers killing each other? Somebody told me it was about blowing up a hilltop, and I can kind of see that ("trigger a blastoplast, ramshackle laker recedes"). And huh, I guess that makes sense now. I just thought he was talking about the low rider actually going a little higher with the hydraulics, but I guess it's a double entendre of sorts.

    And eh, you don't really have to remove that as it's really subtle.
