    Since "Johnny B. Goode" is getting released this week, looks like more axing must commence!
  • Since "Johnny B. Goode" is getting released this week, looks like more axing must commence!

    It's the first song off of the base game too! But regardless of that, my axe will be stained with the blood of '50's rock 'n' roll.

    I'll replace it with Maybelline.

    In wake of recent events, I've garnered some extra stamina with which I will use to create a new month of fictional DLC. Today's month actually has a video game theme! Also, I'm getting a bit forgetful and mildly lazy, so if by chance I end up repeating a song, please let me know, it'd help a lot.

    Month 36 is a special occasion... three years of Rock Band 5! The schedule has been gaining an impressive list of songs that cover everything from eerie drone metal (Sunn O))) - Aghartha) to really bizarre one hit wonders from decades long gone (too many to name). There have been several full album releases (Operation: Mindcrime, The Wall, OK Computer, In the Court of the Crimson King, Images and Worlds). Massive packs with singles nearly every week.

    And now, we finally get an expansion pack. Rock Band 5: Rebellion, which adds in a fluid, adaptive new campaign set in a dystopian future where music is outlawed - and it's up to your band to fight the powers that be.

    The setlist has 50 new songs to add to your library alongside a slew of improvements and additional customization options, but our main focus is going to be those fifty songs. This covers the first two weeks of normal DLC. Week 3 is a small Christmas pack and some singles, and Week 4 is a New Year's Eve pack to kick off the fourth year of Rock Band 5.

    Without further ado, the songs:

  • That is a awesome Expansion Setlist you've got there. :)

    Of all of the Journey songs that isn't Don't Stop Believing or Any Way You Want It, Wheel In The Sky is one of my favorites. I would love to see it in Rock Band, even though, getting Journey again is impossible with Harmonix's current financial state. Same goes for Guns'N Roses songs from Appetite For Destruction and Led Zeppelin as well. But I would love to be surprised if they actually gotten some of those songs though. :)

    And I'm surprised that Harmonix didn't gotten A Perfect Circle as of yet, The Outsider is a song from their discography that I loved, and would like to see. Hopefully, we'll get that and Judith eventually. Same can be said for Foo Fighter's No Way Back and The Safety Dance (Another New Wave classic that we've should've gotten a while back during Rock Band 3's time). Hopefully No Way Back and The Safety Dance will make it into Rock Band 4 eventually. :)

    Interesting to see Peter, Paul, and Mary and MacArthur Park (the original one, not the cover by Donna Summer) in this setlist. I'm looking forward to seeing more songs from this thread. :)

    So will "The Sign" by Ace of Base. How 'bout that.

    Harmonix, you're killing me here (ironically as I'm figuratively killing songs Shining-style)!

    My axe now smells of the blood of '90's music, thanks to them. I've replaced The Sign with All That She Wants. Karma Police will not be replaced and instead be given the status of "previously released but you can buy it now in a different way if you didn't already."

    The expansion setlist (and the premise in general) was actually quite good fun to create! The whole "rebellion" idea stems from the original scrapped concept for Guitar Hero III, which in all honesty I think would have been an awesome premise if the idea had made it far enough. I'd be stoked if the idea is revived in the form of another expansion, with a career similar to the Rockudrama but with more flexibility. For example, having random events based on owning certain songs (i.e. 2112, Mr. Roboto, Where's the Revolution), and having the normal "fans" system replaced with "supporters" that can actually disrupt the way of things to give your band opportunities. The setlist of the expansion I also tried to keep mostly in line with the totalitarian setting, including Revolution Radio, Revolt, Distant Early Warning, Criminal, among others. A few song choices I selected from bands with frequent appearances in the series, like The Who, Foo Fighters, Rush, Queen, and some highly influential artists like Guns N' Roses and Journey to pack some extra punch. Just a lot of fun stuff to play around with and I'm quite pleased with how everything turned out :smile:

    Agree with a lot of your other statements too - I'm surprised we don't have No Way Back given how much DLC Foo Fighters has received, for one.

    Well, Month 37 - here it is. I must carry forth with more fictional DLC somehow.

    This is quite a fitting pack considering ELO announced their first US tour in over 30 years. Not only that, but I got tickets! Seeing ol' Jeff Lynne is something I've been wanting to scratch off the bucket list for years, but he never comes to the US.

    Anyway, I miss seeing your DLC weeks. Hopefully you can start doing them more often again, and I also hope I'll be seeing songs I introduced you to down the line! :)

    Hey man, you know your setlist better than I do! If I miss something, feel free to shout it out yourself :p

    It's funny how people consider this my job around these parts. Wonder if I can be appointed a member of the Song Police somewhere.
  • Woah, hey, what's this, a post in this thread!? Holy bumping, Batman!

    However, I do not have new fantasy DLC this time around, but I've been thinking about this for a while, and now's the time to unveil it.

    I will now be taking requests for this thread from more than just one person! Feel a genre has been neglected? Think there's still something big that's missing? You can comment as many suggestions as you want. Anything's fair game in my book.

    In the meantime, I've gone back and evened the number of songs in certain weeks to keep things even. It's not fully done, but it should be minor recompense for all of this inactivity.
  • I'll be making the first request, since I like where this is going. :)

    I've been listening to music from bands that are going to be playing in the 2018 Carolina Rebellion Tour out of curiosity, and I've gotten to like most of their music. One of the bands I've gotten to like is Texas Hippie Coalition, which is a pretty badass band from the state of Texas. I would like to see a pack for them.

    And also, I would like to either see a Doo-wop song or two as a single or a Doo-wop pack with various artists of that genre, since I am a fan of Oldies music (Considering how happy I was when Shout by The Isley Brothers came out last year).

    Ruby Rose Fox - Bury the Body (2010's, R&B/Soul/Funk)

    This brought a grin to my face. Might as well call this the MCSMeister week :p Glad you liked those! Also, interesting to see you label the Ruby Rose Fox song as R&B/Soul/Funk, which Harmonix didn't do, yet I think it describes her much more accurately than the "indie rock" umbrella. I was surprised you included that in the first place, given that it wasn't even one I explicitly suggested for you.

    Also, "Polish Girl" is the only one I haven't had tiered out of those. Thinking I might request it for @LiveHomeVideo soon...
  • You remember "Kool" Terry Terman? Probably not, unless you're a member of the Glam-head Club, are from Manitoba, or played Rock Band Rivals. Skratch'N Snyf, the band Terry debuted in, only lasted one album before breaking up during the grunge explosion, but over the years, that album, which commercially flopped on release, has become a cult favorite...

    Arkade of Dreams.

    A concept album based on popular urban myth, Arkade of Dreams follows a group of teenagers who, after playing and performing exceptionally well on a bizarre game cabinet, are abducted by the U.S. government as part of a project intended to test the effects of generalized mind control and psychological conditioning. Pulling elements from sci-fi films such as Tron, The Last Starfighter, and thrillers such as WarGames and 1984, the album's story spans twelve tracks of what is very likely to be the only "progressive glam metal" album in existence, going from what seems to be a classic banger ("October, 1981") to power-ballads-turned-odes-for-freedom ("Thirty Years Later") within a span of a little less than an hour.

    And this month the album comes to Rock Band 5 in its entirety, including the original album version of "S.O.M.P. (Someone Must Pass)", which includes an extended version of the final solo and the keyboard intro omitted in the single version (available as part of Rock Band Rivals).

    Heh, consider that week as a "thank you note" of sorts for the requests! I really like all three of those songs (especially The Buggles one), and the Ruby Rose Fox song is really nice too. She reminds me of Amy Winehouse quite a bit, and I can't really say no to an artist that sounds like her.
  • Wow, Skratch'N Snyf is a real band apparently. I wasn't actually sure!

    Loving the punk and Awesome Mix packs though, and especially Enter by Within Temptation. Just wondering why you went with that over one of their bigger songs though? Not that I'm complaining - Rock Band could always do with more doomy stuff.

    Skratch'N Snyf is not a real band, I actually made up the entire album except for S.O.M.P. :smile: Just something I did for fun, thought it'd be pretty cool if it did actually happen.

    I chose to go with Enter simply because I think it's a song with more going on with each part than Restless, the big single from the same album does. I also wanted to go with Restless, but I think Enter would be a bit better gameplay wise. In particular, I think guitar has much more to do throughout the song with the riff.
  • ...you made up an entire album for the sake of your DLC thread? That's commendable.

    Also, I'd 100% be down for some War on Women. I'd personally prefer Second Wave Goodbye, but Say It's a damn fine song.

    This week, coolkat fails to think up songs for his wishlist thread, so he just makes some songs up! /joke

    In all seriousness, I knew you loved glam metal cheese, but I surely didn't expect you to conceptualize an entire fake album! Kind of curious how you thought up some of these track names. Like, they're genuinely believable for glam metal. How.

    Y'know, I never made that Amy Winehouse comparison with Ruby Rose Fox but I can definitely see what you're saying there. They're both vocal powerhouses. If you listen to any more songs from her, let me know! I suggest starting with the songs in my fantasy pack and going from there. Also, check your DMs if you're interested in even more music discovery :)
