    Tier Ordering
    - Warmup
    - Apprentice
    - Solid
    - Moderate
    - Challenging
    - Nightmare
    - Impossible

    And hear is the first DLC for Rock Band 5 2018, Pre-Order Tracks. 4 Songs that are available for all consoles (Including Nintendo Switch, thus making it the first Rock Band for Nintendo since Rock Band 3 (Which was the last game for Nintendo Wii), and 4 Songs that are exclusive to certain consoles (2 for the Playstation and X-Box Versions and 2 for the Nintendo Version).

    - Laugh, Laugh: I've been a shameless fan of 60's Oldies Rock music since before Rock Band came into existence, but I'm also a fan of old classic cartoons like the Hanna Barbara Cartoons. This song from The Beau Brummels was in an episode of The Flintstones, and is one of my many favorite songs of the Oldies Rock genre.
    - Bad Company: Pretty cool song that is named after the band that performed it. I heard a bit of the song while watching a Youtube Video showcasing Stands from Jojo Bizarre's Adventures' Diamond is Unbreakable Arc. Kinda wished we had this song and Feel Like Making Love when we had the chance.
    - Words: New Wave is another one of my favorite genres of music. And Missing Persons are a pretty cool New Wave band. This song and Walking In LA are my favorite songs from that band.
    - Daughter: Haven't listened to much other Pearl Jam songs, outside from the songs from the Ten album and Mind Your Manners, but I heard this song on Amazon Music and it was pretty decent.
    - Gotta Catch 'Em All (Pokémon Theme): Yep, I'm a shameless fan of the Pokémon Franchise and I loved it's American theme song, which made it's debut in 1998, alongside with the anime in my country. Even if you're not a fan of anime, this is really an awesome song that is worthy of Rock Band inclusion.
    - Everybody Get Dangerous: I gotten to know this song while listening to songs on the setlist for Guitar Hero: On Tour Modern Hits. A pretty cool song from Weezer that not a lot of people know of.
    - Shark Attack: Tongue Tied is the only Grouplove song I heard, but I've listened to this song, since it was in Guitar Hero Live's GHTV Setlist and I liked it.
    - Gera Gera Po no Uta: A pretty fun song that is from the anime known as Yo-Kai Watch (Which has a lot of cute Youkai monsters (My favorite is Komasan and Komajiro (The two Komainu brothers))). Again, another fun song for those who aren't fan of anime.

    =Pre-Order Bonus Songs (All three Consoles)=

    OMG! Did Harmonix revealed a song that I had planned for my first expansion!? I think they did. :D

    - Torn by Natalie Imbruglia will be coming to Rock Band 4 as one of the first Official DLC for 2018 of Rock Band 4! :D

    I originally had this song planned for one of the songs for the first setlist expansion, so it was fortunate that I had it planned earlier, because it continues my song streak from the other Thread. Anyways, hear's the planned Tiering for the song in question.

    - My Tiering for Torn

    As usual, I'll be looking forward to @MCSMeister's comparison when it comes out this Thursday, so hear's a planned schedule for this month.

    - January 7: Singles from Cold War Kids, Donna Summer, and Katy Perry
    - January 14: New Album Preview 05 (Fall Out Boy - Mania)
    - January 20: Aimee Mann 01 (Reason for January 20: Martin Luther King Jr. Day is on Jan 21st)

    Anyways, look forward to the upcoming DLC for this upcoming Sunday. :)

    "Torn" comparison

    Note that, like "Feel It Still" a couple weeks ago, this is another song I haven't heard and won't be buying, so I won't comment too much outside of the tiers themselves.

    Somehow, you managed to get a whopping four dots off on both drums and vocals, so I'm confused how such a big difference happened there. Other than that, guitar is one dot off and bass is two dots off. So, at least half of your tier wasn't too off :)

    Yeah, i didn't expected the vocals to be easy. Most songs with female vocalists on Vocals aren't easy to begin with (The Paramore songs are a good example of this). I gave it a 0-dot tier just in case if Harmonix didn't gave it a four-dot tier, and I'm glad they did.

    As for the other instruments, I can see why Harmonix gave them harder tiers when I've listened to the song again. I tiered them on easier tiers, because most Pop-rock songs are usually easy. That, plus when I had it prep for the upcoming first expansion, I had other songs that are either pretty hard or moderate. But after listening to the song via Youtube a second time, I see that it isn't as easy as I originally thought.
    - The Guitar looks like it has some chords, that looks easy, but can be complicated if a guitarist doesn't know what he's doing. 2-dots is acceptable, so I'll agree with Harmonix's tiering for Guitar of the song.
    - Bass seems to have some fast paced chords, which could easily mess up bassists when they are trying to FC the song on Expert Bass, which makes me understand why Harmonix gave it a 3-dot tier on Bass. So I'll agree with their tiering for Bass of the song as well.
    - Drums looks like it follows a simple beat, but the fills could easily end a drummer's FC streak if he's not careful. I can understand why Harmonix gave it a 4-dot tier for drums and thus, I'll agree with them.

    But I'm glad that I've made a solid effort on the tierings for the songs. And I hope you're looking forward to upcoming Wishlist DLC for this thread.

    A special DLC Pack will be making it's way today, due to a popular 1990s Cartoon show getting a reboot in 2020, which was mentioned on the news this year. And to tell you more about this pack, I've brought some special guests...

    Image result for animaniacs warner siblings

    "Hello, Viewers! We're the Warner Brothers, from the cartoon show, Animaniacs!"

    "I'm Yakko!"

    "And I'm Wakko!"

    "And I'm Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana Fanna Bo Besca the 3rd! But you can call me Dot."

    "We've been brought here by Fritzy Katz to announce a very special DLC Pack for his Rock Band 5 Wishlist."

    "Did he? I thought he invited us for a nice picnic."

    "As you're aware, our series, Animaniacs, is getting a reboot in two years from now on Hulu."

    That's right. I've been a fan of classic cartoons since before I started playing Rock Band. And Animaniacs is one of those cartoon shows that I loved as a kid. When I heard that Animaniacs is getting a reboot, I was so ecstatic that I just want to shed tears of joy.

    "Hey, we understand how you feel. You're just getting in touch with your inner childhood.
    Happens to everybody.

    "So, Yakko, are we're going to reveal the special Faboo surprise DLC Pack?"

    "Our special surprise DLC Pack is a 8-song Animaniacs Pack featuring songs by us, The Warner Bros, and their Warner Sister, me."

    That is correct. The Animainacs Pack will feature 8 beloved songs from the Animaniacs cartoon show. Yes, they're not the typical standard for Rock Band DLC, because of the orchestral instruments, but if Harmonix can let a Acapella song in RBN, then I wonder what will happen if they will allow songs from one of the beloved Cartoon shows of the 1990s as DLC (Probably won't happen, as like I said before, not the typical standard for Rock Band DLC). So, these songs are the first Wishlist DLC that uses Orchestral Instruments.

    "To be continued on the next post. (French kisses towards the viewers) G'night everybody!"
  • edited January 2018
    (Continued from the previous post)

    Yakko's World: "Ah, the good old song where I, Yakko Warner, sings and lists almost every country of our planet, Earth. Yes, I am aware that Czechslovakia, Yugoslavia, Soviet Union and Zaire are no longer countries, but this is an iconic song that most fans of our show would remember."

    Wakko's America: "This is my song, the song where I list every state of the United States of America, and their capital cities. I had such fun times when performing this song."

    I'm Cute: "Here's my Cute song. Even their Warner Sister needs a solo song in this pack as well."

    I'm Mad: "Hey, Dot. Remember when Doctor Scratchansniff took us to the circus to quell down our fighting?" "I remember, Yakko. And that moment was made into a song,
    which has Doctor Scratchansniff as a guest vocalist.
    " "At least, he shares my voice actor."

    The Ballad of Magellan: "Now here's another nice song that me and my younger siblings performed." "Poor Magellan, we could've helped him if he let us." "That's true... But I looked pretty cute in a pirate outfit."

    At The Big Wrap Party Tonight: "This song was played on a scene at a big party, with all kinds of celebrities, and our co-stars." "Yep, and CEO Plotz was shocked when he found out that our party had a large budget." "Yep, he was. But the food was delicious."

    There's Only One of You: "This fun little ditty, which mentions all the various species of Earth, was in the album, Yakko's World..." "But it was included in one of the last episodes of our series final season, Hooray for North Hollywood" "It's one of the hardest two songs in this pack. The other one is..."

    Animaniacs (Theme Song): "Our beloved theme song for our show, Animaniacs. This is the other hard song of the pack." "It uses the Extended Version, which appears in the official soundtrack of our show." "We dedicate this song, as well as the entire pack to the late Richard Stone. Our show wouldn't be a success without him."

    And without further ado. "We present to you the Animaniacs: The Warner Siblings Favorite Songs pack."

    - Animaniacs (Band Tier: Impossible)
    - Yakko's World (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - Wakko's America (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - I'm Cute (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - I'm Mad (Band Tier: Challenging)
    - The Ballad of Magellan (Band Tier: Apprentice)
    - There's Only One of You (Band Tier: Nightmare)
    - At The Big Wrap Party Tonight (Band Tier: Challenging)

    Probably not what you'd expect from my thread, but these songs would be very fun to play. But like I mentioned before, these songs aren't the typical Rock Band standard songs.

    "True. But there will be Rock Band standard songs that will be coming this Sunday. And those artist are Amy Winehouse, The Zutons, Lucius, Cold War Kids, Donna Summer, and Katy Perry."

    "I wish Fritzy Katz does a pack for Michael Jackson songs, sometime."

    "I hope you enjoyed our special Animaniacs pack and you can watch our show on Hulu,
    I think it's also on Netflix, too.

    "Goodbye, Nurse!"

    EDIT: Fixed 2 typo errors.
  • It's Sunday, which means, time for me to reveal a new Wishlist DLC for this month. :)

    The DLC for this week is a 3-song pack that will appear each month known as "Monthly Deep-cuts". You know what's so cool about the 3-song artist packs from the RB1 and RB2 eras, they introduced us to some unknown songs that most of us hardly know outside from their well known hits. The Toadies pack is a example of this, aside from it's bigger hit, Possum Kingdom, I got introduced to the two other songs from that pack: Away and Tyler, and both of them were good (Especially Away).

    So I'll be introducing 3 Deep-cuts from these 3 artists that has disc songs in previous Rock Band games: The Zutons from Lego Rock Band, Amy Winehouse from Rock Band 3, and Lucius from Rock Band 4.

    - Tired of Hanging Around: The Zuton's hit song, Valerie, was a pretty cool song that almost reminded me of late 1960's R&B Hits that you usually hear on oldies radio. This song, which is named after the album that Valerie hales from, is a typical 2000s-British Indie song that is just as cool as their hit song.
    - Addicted: Shame about Amy Winehouse's early death back in 2011, she is a talented singer, and her songs are very reminiscence of old-school Motown songs from the early 1960s, which I felt when hearing Rehab, from her album, Back to Black. This song also came from the same album, and is just as soulful as Rehab.
    - Wildewoman: Thanks to Rock Band 4, I've gotten myself introduced to the sound of Lucius when I listened to Turn It Around for the first time. Their sound reminded me of the old school oldies hits from the late 1950s to early 1960s. The song that is named after their album, Wildewoman, is just as nice sounding as Turn It Around.

    These three songs will be released alongside 3 other songs that are seperate from the pack: Our singles for this week. Each singles is tied to a certain theme, and our week's theme is Hot and Cold. The songs that will be joining it are...

    - Hot Stuff: It's nice that we've gotten Earth, Wind, & Fire and Kool & The Gang. But I wished they gotten us the other big Disco hits from the 1970s, like the original I Will Survive, or anything from KC & The Sunshine Band, or this song, which was in Dance Central 2 and Just Dance 2.
    - Hang Me Up to Dry: It's nice that we have Cold War Kids making their debut in Rock Band 4. Of course, it would be expected that First would be first, since that's their biggest song in their discography. But this good song, which was in Band Hero's setlist, needs some love too.
    - Hot N' Cold: I know Harmonix wants to do it sometime: include a Katy Perry song into their DLC Library. I wouldn't be surprised if they did a pack for her discography. I like a few of her songs: California Gurls, TGIF (Last Friday Night), & this song, which was in the first Just Dance game.

    =Monthly Deep-Cuts 01=
    - Amy Winehouse - Addicted (Band Tier: Solid)
    - Lucius - Wildewoman (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - The Zutons - Tired of Hanging Around (Band Tier: Moderate)
    =Singles 029=
    - Cold War Kids - Hang Me Up to Dry (Band Tier: Solid)
    - Donna Summer - Hot Stuff (Band Tier: Challenging)
    - Katy Perry - Hot N' Cold (Band Tier: Moderate)

    Next week will be a Album Preview pack of Fall Out Boy's upcoming album, Mania, which will be out Next Friday (The Friday after this upcoming Friday), so look forward to that, plus some Singles from Incubus and The Bangles. :)
  • I absolutely love the idea of an animaniacs pack, amazing pull, didn't know how much i want that now since you brought it up, that might just be my American Pie for the game right there
  • I really like the idea of giving recognition to some deep cuts.

  • What I love about your threads is how their formatted (which is something I've not-so-subtly taken some inspiration from) but also just how you will come up with some really outlandish ideas for songs. I mean, who else would consider doing an Animaniacs pack?!

    Coolkat would do the same thing, though he would include more songs from Animaniacs than me.

    He did a Disney Pack that has all kinds of songs from Disney movies, including ones that aren't your typical Rock Band standard songs (Like supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins for example). That got me the idea to do a Animaniacs Song Pack when the time was right (And the announcement of the Animaniacs Reboot was the perfect opportunity to do so).

    But I'm glad that you're liking my Wishlist Threads. :)
  • It's Sunday, time for me to post a new set of Wishlist DLC. :)

    This first half of this week's DLC is a 3-Song New Album Preview Pack of Fall Out Boy's upcoming album, Mania. Since their reunion in 2013, Fall Out Boy's sound moved from the Emo Pop sound that most people were familiar with back then, to a new sound to keep in line with some of the newer Alternative acts like Imagine Dragons and such. They produced new songs like My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark and Centuries.

    The three songs that I chose for the New Album Preview are the following...

    - Champion: I heard this song on a Alternative Playlist on Amazon Music, and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it like I would with FOB's Older Songs or some of their new songs like Immortals (My favorite of their newer songs) or My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark, but after hearing it, I dig it.
    - The Last of The Real Ones: A pretty cool song. The second favorite of my choices for the New Album Preview Pack. Has a Crazy Drum Roll near the end of the song.
    - Hold Me Tight or Don't: My favorite of the choices I made for the New Album Preview Pack. This song has a nice Latin/Tropical vibe which I like. Though, Champions will most likely be the first choice for Mania as Rock Band 4 DLC, but I hope this song gets some love too.

    These three songs will be joined by three more songs, Three singles with this as a theme: Words that derives from the word "Mania"

    - Manic Monday: Even though, Walk Like An Egyptian is arguably the most breakthrough song for them, I'm surprise that it was the only song we ever got from the Bangles. They have other good songs too, like their cover of Hazy Shade of Winter, from Less Than Zero, Eternal Flame, and this song. Hopefully, The Bangles will eventually get their second song for Rock Band, sooner or later.
    - Megalomaniac: Another song that I felt like we've should've gotten earlier, either as part of the Incubus 01 Pack or with Drive, and another Incubus Song (Probably Anna Molly for Song 3) in a Incubus 02 Pack. Harmonix seems to have a habit of ignoring their most well known songs for newer songs back in the day (But thankfully, they're making sure that the most well known songs will be added soon). But like with Manic Monday above, it will probably be added sooner or later, hopefully.
    - Maniac: Harmonix sure does love adding songs from popular 1980s movies (Footloose, Danger Zone, The Power of Love, etc), but they have yet to add one of the songs from Flashdance, which is another 1980s classic. And aside from the Irene Cara song of the same name, this song is also a solid contender for being used as a Rock Band 4 DLC, eventually.

    So, without further ado... Hear is New Album Preview 05 and the next set of Singles.

    =New Album Preview 05 (Fall Out Boy - Mania)=
    - Champion (Band Tier: Solid)
    - Hold Me Tight or Don't (Band Tier: Moderate)

    This upcoming Saturday will be a 3-song Pack of Aimee Mann and all of the bands that she has performed in, plus singles from the Bay City Rollers, The Easybeats, and the Happy Mondays. I hope you are looking forward to them. :)

    EDIT: Fixed a few typo errors.
  • It's Sunday, time for me to post some new Wishlist DLC that aren't Rewinds :)

    But before that: In case you are wondering: There is a Season Spotlight Pass for Rock Band 5 2018. The first two songs are...
    - Cold War Kids - Hang Me Up to Dry (Rivals Mode Season 1 Week 1)
    - Incubus - Megalomaniac (Rivals Mode Season 1 Week 2)

    And now, for this weeks DLC: It's a three song pack of Aimee Mann's music career, which includes the following: Her Solo Career, and her career in 'Til Tuesday and The Both. As a fan of New Wave music, Voices Carry is one of my favorite songs of that genre. When Rivals came out, and once the Boston Challenge came, I was surprised to learn that Aimee Mann, the vocalist of 'Til Tuesday, was in The Both, who did the song, Milwaukee, which was in Rock Band 4.

    Inspired by this, I figured I do a Aimee Mann 3 pack spanning her entire music career, but not just focusing on her Solo Career, but also her time as a band member for the two bands she performed in (Similiar to my Eric Clapton 01 Pack in my first Wishlist Thread, which not only highlighted his solo career, but his time in the bands he performed in). So these are the three songs that will be in this pack...
    - What About Love: While Voices Carry is 'Til Tuesday's most well known track, to most people, I'm under the impression that the people of Boston don't think so, as the band in question is a Boston Band, so they must had other big hits in their home city. So I thought that if I do an Aimee Mann pack, I would include a song from 'Til Tuesday that isn't Voices Carry. This cool track that is the 'Til Tuesday rep, was the one that came up when I searched 'Til Tuesday on Google.
    - Humpty Dumpty: This is the rep for Aimee Mann's solo career. Another cool sounding song that I've gotten to like, thanks to me learning about Aimee Mann's solo career via Wikipedia.
    - No Sir: The rep from the superduo with Chisel's former frontman, Ted Leo. Milwaukee was another cool song that I've gotten to like, thanks to Rock Band 4, and also very fun on Vocals (Though, easy on Vocals). This deep cut, which came from the same album as Milwaukee, is just as cool.

    These three songs will be joined by three more songs, Standalone Singles that aren't tied to the pack, but follows a peculiar theme. This week's theme is Days of the Week.

    - Step On: I never listened to Madchester much while growing up, but I do like The Stone Roses' songs, thanks to Guitar Hero. This song, which is by, another band of the Madchester scene, the Happy Mondays, is also a good pick that I've chose. The guitar is not too easy, but hopefully not too hard, for a Pop/Dance/Electronic song. Manchester sure does have some good music from the early 1990s.
    - Friday On My Mind: The Beatles are one of my favorite bands, and there are bands that sounds very similar to them back in their heydays during the 1960s (Before Sgt.Pepper came out). The Easybeats, from Australia (Which has the late George Young, the older brother of AC/DC's guitarist and late bassist, Angus and Malcolm), are another beat rock band, which is famous for this song. I had a "Oh, That Song" moment while listening to it for tiering, as I heard bits of it on a Oldies Radio Station. Maybe we won't get a Beatles Rock Band export, but this song and other Beat Rock songs are the closest thing we'll get for Beatles-esque songs.
    - Saturday Night: Another semi-known 1970s classic, from a Scottish Band that has only one major hit in the US, but many major hits in their home country: The United Kingdom. Maybe Harmonix might get it as a RB4 DLC someday, either as part of a Solid 70s 03 pack or a standalone Single DLC that isn't tied to any pack.

    And starting from this week, you'll see that I've added a Spotlight Pass symbol next to the song that will be the Spotlight Pass Song. So, without further ado, hear is the Aimee Mann 01 pack, with the next set of singles.

    =Aimee Mann 01=
    - Aimee Mann - Humpty Dumpty (Band Tier: Solid)
    - The Both - No Sir (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - 'Til Tuesday - What About Love (Band Tier: Apprentice (SPOTLIGHT PASS SONG)

    =Singles 030=
    - Bay City Rollers - Saturday Night (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - The Easybeats - Friday On My Mind (Band Tier: Moderate)
    - Happy Mondays - Step On (Band Tier: Challenging)

    Wednesday will have some more Rewinds, representing all of the Pop genres. I hope you're looking forward to them. :)
  • edited January 2018
    Not one, but two Songs from both this Thread (Which would've been coming later) and the previous thread are coming to RB4 as DLC! :D

    - The first one, from the previous thread, is Takin' Care of Business, from the Bachman Turner Overdrive 01 Pack.
    - The second one, which is from this thread, is Lonely Is The Night, which is one of the planned songs for one of my Setlist Expansions.

    Hear's my tiering for Lonely Is The Night.

    I am so happy that BTO is making their Rock Band debut in this game, and I'm looking forward to @MCSMeister's comparison for both songs, once they come out. :)

    EDIT: Fixed a typo error.
  • edited January 2018
    My planned tiering for Lonely Is The Night is now up. (Sorry about making a mistake on assuming it was already in my setlist, when I realized that I had it planned for an expansion ;) )
  • Hi, I thought I'd sneak in with the tier comparison for Lonely Is The Night this time!

    Left: Expectation. Right: Reality

    You were two below for vocals and one above for the other instruments. Genre's right (to be expected when Squier's had other tracks in the game already).

    I think I agree more with HMX's tiers from having just given the guitar chart a play and listened to the parts quite closely. There's nothing too taxing on guitar, bassline is certainly more interesting than most but again doesn't seem too bad, vocals seem to use a fair bit of range especially in the choruses. Still, one off on three of the instruments is not bad!
  • @Vexus Thanks. (I take it that you're a X-Box player, right?) :)

    I can understand why Vocals is a four, it looks easy, but it isn't. I'd owned and played Billy Squier's Christmas song on vocals, and I though to myself "That song has to an absolute nightmare to try and FC on vocals." And I kinda expected that Harmonix would tier it a 4 over my 2, so it's acceptable.

    As for Guitar, I'm kinda think that 5 suits it better than 4, but if that's Harmonix's decision, I will respect that decision. The official tierings for Bass and Drums by Harmonix seems fair, compared to mine.

    Guess that leaves only one song tier to be compared (Which is Takin' Care of Business (I'm so happy that BTO is finally coming to Rock Band), and I'll be looking forward to the comparison. :)
  • I am indeed. Spotlight pass is great when it works as it should, unlike last week! Still, I've got no idea if I'll be able to sneak in with the tier comparison for that one...

    (Incidentally, I don't think I've seen anyone but myself denote whether or not a song has harmonies in these threads. Wonder why that is? Not that it matters much, of course.)

    Wow, and this whole time I thought I had trademarked my tier comparisons! Haha. Also @Vexus, the song is on the store already? You must be in a different region. New DLC doesn't come up for another 12 hours for me (I'm in the US, though).

    In all seriousness, this makes it easier for me since I've had less time to play RB lately, so I won't feel pressured to do both songs immediately. I'll get the "Takin' Care of Business" one up as soon as I get a chance to play it, which will hopefully be within the next couple of days. Unless @Vexus robs me of that one as well :p

    By the way @FritzyKatz, I messaged you about a typo in your "Lonely Is the Night" tier, if you saw that :)
  • @MCSMeister Yes, I did saw your message. Thanks for letting me know. :)

    Sorry for the delay, I promised a pack of Rewinds yesterday, with the next Weekly Challenge Theme. But I'll be doing that today, but it will be coming with a special DLC Pack that I've made in response to Harmonix officially releasing the first song from one of my favorite bands of the 1970s: A talented, but yet underrated band in comparison to Rush (Arguably the most popular Canadian band of the 1970s).

    That band in question is Bachman-Turner Overdrive, as their most popular and famous song, Takin' Care of Business, which was used in numerous episodes of popular Television Drama, and numerous commercials, will be release as DLC this week (It's out now already). In my first Wishlist thread, I made a 3 song pack with that song, along with You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet and Roll On Down The Highway.

    And as a special bonus, I'll be releasing another 3 song pack from BTO, with one Rewind song, which was one of the on-disc songs in my Rock Band 5 Wishlist thread.

    - Hey You: I cannot remember if I heard this on a Oldies Radio station or not, because I remember listening to BTO's music on Oldies Radio Stations (They usually play some classic rock songs from the 1970s), but I like how it sounds similar to You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet. If Harmonix releases this song, then this would be a good challenge on Vocals.
    - Take It Like a Man: Shame that we don't have Keys in Rock Band 4, because this would've been a really hard song on Keys if we still had them. But it's a good song, never the less. The Guitar Chart isn't Alt-charted.
    - Let It Ride: The Rewind track of the pack, and my most personal favorite BTO Song. I've been wanting this song to appear in Rock Band for some time, and now that BTO has finally made their Rock Band debut proper, those chances has increased.

    And so, hear's the first part of the second half of DLC for this week: the Bachman-Turner Overdrive 02 pack.

    - Hey You (Band Tier: Challenging)
    - Let It Ride (Rock Band 5 Rewind)
    - Take It Like a Man (Band Tier: Moderate)

    The second part of the second half of DLC will be coming soon.
  • And hear is the second half of the DLC. The third of the Frizty Katz's Rewind Selections series. 12 Tracks that represents the genres of Pop-Rock, Pop/Dance/Electronic, and New Wave, along with a Genre theme for the Weekly Challenge. So basically, this week we have 13 Rewinds (12 from this pack, and 1 extra from another pack).

    =Fritzy Katz's Rewind Selections=
    - Big Country - In A Big Country (Rock Band 3 Rewind)
    - The Cure - Friday, I'm In Love (Rock Band 4 Rewind)
    - Duran Duran - Hungry Like The Wolf (Rock Band 2 Rewind)
    - Echo & The Bunnymen - The Killing Moon (Rock Band 3 Rewind)

    This Sunday will have a special DLC that will be deemed "Last New DLC of the Week", And in January 30, there will be a special DLC Pack to coincide with the release of a Game. I hope you're looking forward to them. :)
  • Sure, I'll do Takin' Care of Business too--

    Vocals were spot-on, guitars one out each and drums two out. I think I agree with your guitar tier more, though. It's not on the same level as Lonely, or quite a lot of the other Challenging tracks - certainly it's a low Challenging if it is one at all. I really don't see how you got a 4 for the drums though. Bass seems pretty much on the borderline between a 2 and a 3 to me.

    So yeah, good job with that one!

  • @Vexus 1 out of 4? Not a bad effort I did. :)

    I gave 4 to Drums, because of how fast pace the drum rhythm were. Though, it doesn't sound too hard, so I can agree with Harmonix's decision to give it a 2.

    It's a good thing to know that I did a strong effort on the tiering. I hope you're looking forward to the DLC that I have for the Last New DLC of the Week. It's going to be a good one. :)

    My goodness Vexus, you're gonna put me out of work before long! Sometimes I forget that other people can make tier comparisons too, but after being literally the only one to do this for people over the past couple years, it certainly does feel strange having someone else beat me to the punch :p It's like it became something I was known for at this point.

    I'll have to inspect the tier comparisons whenever I play the songs. I really do enjoy making tier comparisons though so don't feel like you're lifting a burden off of me or whatever. I was going to get to them when I played them, but I guess there's no rush on that now.

    Nope, it's not either of those two. (But I would like to do a Tom Jones song in my Wishlist Thread sometime).

    But I will give you a hint: You have it in your On-Disc Setlist on your Wishlist Thread, and it's also one of the songs in Dropmix. The singer has also a song that is named after a 1980s movie, in which she was a key actor in. :)
  • It's Sunday, and it's time for me to reveal the Last Weekly DLC of January 2018. :)

    For Rock Band 4 in regards to Official DLC for this month, this year: It has been Half satisfying and Half underwhelming. The the Satisfying half: We saw the release of Natalie Imbruglia's Torn, Depeche Mode's Enjoy The Silence, the Rewind of the Go-Go's We Got The Beat, Billy Squier's Lonely Is The Night, and most importantly, Bachman-Turner Overdrive's Takin' Care of Business. That was the satisfying half of this month.

    And as for the underwhelming half that should've been satisfying: A Skid Row song that isn't Youth Gone Wild (But was decent), A rewind of a Rock Band 3 Song, which I already have in my Library, due to me doing the Rock Band 3 Export prior, and the Going Country series' Official 10th Pack, which includes a Shania Twain song that isn't Man, I Feel Like a Woman (But is, like with the Skid Row Song, decent), and two songs from Jason Aldean and Sam Hunt that I'm kinda meh on.

    The Going Country 10 pack should've had Carrie Underwood's Church Bells, which was in Rock Band VR's Setlist and this song: Our Last Weekly DLC of January 2018.

    Last Weekly DLC of January 2018: I have to admit, I never listened to much of her discography before aside from 9 to 5 (Which I heard on a TV Special about Donald Duck ("Down and Out With Donald Duck" was the name of the special. It was this Special that I heard Steppenwolf's Born to Be Wild, "Weird" Al Yankovich's parody cover of Huey Lewis and The News' I Want A New Drug, and Linda Ronstadt's cover of Dee Dee Warwick's You're No Good).
    But thanks to @Vexus' Hypothetical Wishlist Thread, I decided to listen to my choice for Last Weekly DLC of January 2018, which was a classic in it's genre: Country, and I can tell you that I loved it. It is one of the songs that is in Dropmix, and it's the namesake of the main protagonist of the Stone Ocean Arc of Hirohiko Araki's Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. So, without further ado, I present to you, the Last Weekly DLC of January 2018.

    - Dolly Parton - Jolene (Band Tier: Moderate (SPOTLIGHT PASS SONG)

    Even though, it's called Last DLC of the Week of January, we're not done just yet. There's a special DLC Pack that is coming in just 2 days from now (January 30th) to coincide with the release of a certain game from a very well known RPG series, and also, the next set of Rewinds, which will be on January. I hope you're looking forward to them. :)
