This picture accompanied CAKE's poll that ran from July 1, 2009 to July 13, 2009. Hopefully it doesn't reflect CAKE's opinion of the game!
[Update: apparently it does.][/CENTER]

[CENTER]UPDATES!
Words straight from CAKE manager Tommy Manzi himself.

"...music that defies simple-minded pop paradigms."
- Los Angeles Times

"...a small number of bands can claim an actual catalog of worthwhile tunes.
Count CAKE in that category..."
- Oakland Tribune

"Every now and then, a band with actual personality
sneaks onto the modern rock radio playlist."
- Washington Times

"Every time I play Rock Band now,
after a few songs, I start wishing for some CAKE."
- TakeABow

Part 1:
Introduction To CAKE

Because quite a few of you have yet to be introduced to the band.
==============================
==============================[/CENTER]
Credit goes to jr174200 for his threads "Top 20 Phish Songs for Rock Band DLC" and "Official Modest Mouse DLC Thread," which inspired me to fuse aspects of each into this thread.

But even more credit goes to CAKE for being the best band ever. (That's my opinion.)



[CENTER][ATTACH]4526[/ATTACH]
Wait, is that a trumpet? Yeah. It is. And it's ingeniously prominent on most CAKE songs.[/CENTER]

I've posted in all the threads with "CAKE" in the title, and in other relevant threads. So what's the next step? To make an Official CAKE DLC Thread, of course!

CAKE is a band you either love to death or haven't heard of. There's no "hating them" option. Though, if you really do hate them, I beg you to tell me why. I respect your opinion, and even though I am obviously a huge fan of the band, I realize they aren't for everyone. I am also very adamant on valuing others' taste in music - a common courtesy many on these forums seem to lack. I am just curious what you don't enjoy about them. That said...

They've had hits such as "The Distance," "Short Skirt/Long Jacket," "I Will Survive," and "Rock 'n' Roll Lifestyle," among others. Singer-songwriter and guitarist John McCrea's lyrics are sophisticated, witty, humorous, sardonic, sarcastic, quirky, uplifting, intelligent and meaningful -- somehow, all at the same time. Their sound is varied, yet distinctive. They defy being classified into any one genre. Rock? Pop? Alternative Rock? Soul? Geek Rock? Country? Hip-Hop? Jazz? Rap? New Wave Pop? White-Boy Funk? YES! When you hear CAKE, you know it's CAKE!

[CENTER][ATTACH]4527[/ATTACH]
Their major releases so far.[/CENTER]

CAKE is a perfect fit for Rock Band. Their basslines are so catchy that, when in Band Quickplay, the two guitarists would be arguing over who gets to play bass instead of guitar. (No, really.) That's not to say the guitarists aren't incredibly talented also, because they most definitely are. The drums aren't the most complex patterns, but they're fun! John McCrea's style of singing means we'd see a lot of "talky parts." But that's okay! Each song is rich, and filled with only the best sounds from each instrument. I know it's fanboyish and biased to say, but CAKE has the winning formula for turning out one masterpiece after another. Of course I like some songs better than others, but each one just has that ... feel to it, you know?

CAKE was a major label band since their first release in 1994 (Capricorn for the first three, Columbia for the next two), but always managed to fly just under the radar. Big enough to go platinum on a couple albums, but small enough to not be known by every living soul. That's one thing I love so much about them. They make music because they love making music. In fact, they just recently decided that being a major label band wasn't for them. So they created their own record label, Upbeat Records. The first release on the label is their newest B-Sides and Rarities. I mean, honestly, how many successful bands out there go from being a major label band to an independent band? I know there are quite a few, but it's awesome that CAKE is on that list now.

The point of this thread is to organize all the CAKE fans in one place, a friendly place to discuss their music and recommend their songs for DLC. If you've posted in other threads, please post whatever you've said there in here, too! I'm only gonna take others' suggestions from this thread. I know a lot of you out there love CAKE. I've seen proof over the last few months, with posts that only affirm the band. I've yet to see a single post of anyone saying they don't like CAKE. So I finally gave in to making an official thread.

[CENTER][ATTACH]4528[/ATTACH]
Yeah, that's my car. So what? Oh, and the joke "Your CAKE got frosted!" has been made.[/CENTER]

Now, let's show Harmonix how much we really want CAKE in Rock Band! Feel free to show any pictures or videos of anything relating to the band CAKE! Or, simply express through words your love for them. Your feedback is the whole reason I'm doing this!

These are all official music videos made by the band for the fans. I'm listing them chronologically.

Note: these videos are also found in the next few posts. I just thought it'd be convenient to list them chronologically here.

    The Distance

    Short Skirt, Long Jacket

    You know, I'm coming up with a really long list, why not just throw it all on there as DLC? that works for me...
    Hell yes, DopeHatMan! Great choices there. Any more you have are more than welcome. I just want to see how many fans of CAKE there are and which songs those fans really want to play. That way, we'll all know which songs to request "officially" with the Request Song feature. ;)

    Keep the votes coming, guys and gals! This is a discussion thread, too. So talk about everything CAKE-related: shows you've been to; things you've had signed by the band; friends, family and strangers you've turned onto the band; vinyls you purchased off eBay -- anything and everything! I love hearing stories like that. :cool:

    Haha, well, there are a few that fit this description. My guess is you heard either "The Distance" or "Short Skirt/Long Jacket" Do you remember any of the lyrics, or the way it sounded? That would help me figure it out so I know which song to chalk your vote up to.

    In case your post was a joke (good one!), I'd still like to know the song you're referring to, if indeed you want one in Rock Band.

    Thanks for the bump. Your votes are counted. Glad to get all the CAKE fans together here. This thread will never die. Not with the life I will breathe into it. I have far too much passion for CAKE to let an "official" thread that I created get lost. :D

    I definitely need to put my two cents in for:
    The Distance
    Mexico
    Sheep Go To Heaven
    Shadow Stabbing
    Never There

    I went to one of their early concerts, just a few weeks after the first album came out, a free concert in Sacramento. It was awesome, I was in the front row and I got to talk to John McCrea afterwards. Cool band.

    That is truly awesome! I'm jealous you got to meet John, but also very happy for you. So that was back in, '94? It must have been an incredible show for you to remember it 14 years later. (Though, I know I would never forget a front-row show of CAKE's, especially if I got to meet John!) Any chance you remember how many songs from the album they played?

    Thanks for the input!

    yeah, that was a long time ago. I distinctly remember they played "Rock and Roll Lifestyle" and after the show, I remarked to John about how weird it must feel to have all these teenaged kids with the latest hip clothes singing the words back to him. He said that he wrote the song about himself and that it's not that weird. I'm sure they played most if not all of their first album.

    And on any good Cake list we have to include a single Weird Al track: Close But No Cigar

    Granted, its not really Cake but a style parody, but once Cake covers it, it'll be included on the list...
  • pmpboarderpmpboarder Road Warrior
    edited January 2008
    "Close But No Cigar" would indeed be very fun to play. When I heard that song when the album first came out, it brought a big smile to my face. I know Weird Al has said before that he likes CAKE, but I never expected him to make a song in their style. I wonder what CAKE thinks about it.

    "Granted, its not really Cake but a style parody, but once Cake covers it, it'll be included on the list... "

    That makes me laugh! The way you worded it makes it seem (to me) as though every song is eventually going to be covered by CAKE. It's not too far of a stretch, though. I wonder what covers (if any) we'll see on their next studio album, which I cannot wait for! It's due out this year. :cool:

    I added a poll! It's a more visible and tangible way of seeing the general demand for CAKE! :cool:

    Of course, I still want everyone to vote for individual songs, too. That's the specific demand for CAKE!

    Should I feel guilty bumping my own thread? Yeah, probably. But I don't. Here's my rationale:

    - It's not my thread, it's our thread -- I just maintain it. :o
    - I've devoted a lot of time working on this thread, and I feel I should breathe fresh air into it (bump it) at least once a day to encourage others to appreciate it.
    - I want to keep this thread alive, instead of seeing more CAKE threads pop up. ;)
    - I finally started rating some songs! I almost finished an entire album, too, but then the post ran out of room. (10,000 characters per post? Man, you think that's a lot until you try to tackle a thread like this.) Looks like including some lyrics for each song isn't gonna work... :mad:
    - I'm going to bed now, when the rest of the world is waking up. So while I'm sleeping, you can be posting! And then I can wake up to the realization that there are lots of CAKE fans on the Rock Band forums.

    That probably shouldn't keep my guilt at bay. But it does. :rolleyes:

    Good night, rockers. See you tomorrow.

    Actually I just figured that the guys in Cake have a really good sense of humor, and I could see them covering a style parody of themselves in concert, for no other reason than they think it'd be cool to do...

    Haha! Yeah, it's obvious John has a great sense of humor. I'm sure the other guys do, too.

    EDIT: Alright, I've now got links to either music videos, live performances or MP3 samples for about 75% of their entire discography. No one should be voting for the third option...

    I might download some other songs by them but I would for sure download "Commisioning a Symphony In C" in a second. (or however long the PS3 takes to download it :p)

    I definitely want to see Cake in Rock Band. I would download ANY of their songs in a new york minute if they became available.

    Here are my picks (Just going through the list of albums on my Foobar playlist):

    Comanche
    Rock'n'Roll Lifestyle
    The Distance
    Friend Is a Four Letter Word
    Daria
    I Will Survive
    Italian Leather Sofa
    Satan Is My Motor
    Never There
    Carbon Monoxide
    Opera Singer
    Meanwhile, Rick James...
    Shadow Stabbing
    Short Skirt/Long Jacket
    Commissioning A Symphony in C
    Comfort Eagle
    Long Line of Cars
    Love You Madly
    Pretty Pink Ribbon


    Basically, as far as an entire album pick would go, I'd say go for Comfort Eagle.

    For 3-song packs, any combination of the bolded ones.

    Of course, I wouldn't argue with *any* Cake song that may make it to the DLC status.

    My favorite two Cake songs are "Daria" and "Jolene".

    But no matter what songs they do, I'd like to get some crowd vocals on the DLC. The best part of playing Rock Band is when the crowd starts singing along, and Cake is some fun stuff to sing along to. Can you imagine playing one of the small venues and having the crowd belting out "Daaaa-ri-aaaa" in 5.1?

    I'd be down to purchase any and all CAKE that is released to the DLC.

    I love Cake's cover of I Will Survive.

    I don't mind cake... they're alright. but they would be terrible in this game (the singing would be way too easy... that guy is so monotone it's not even funny... alright, maybe a little :P)

    I'd love to see some Cake, especially Jolene and Stickshifts and Safetybelts.

    I understand and appreciate that. Thank you for posting your opinion. However, I'm curious. Is the monotony of McCrea's singing the only thing you don't like about CAKE? Or rather, the only thing that would make them terrible for Rock Band? I know it would mean a lot of "talky parts," but it wouldn't be all that bad.
