Songs for Rock Band - THE POLL!!

Postby Red » Fri Oct 09, 2009 5:46 am

Jemaine has asked for the fans help in choosing which FOTC songs should be included in a new version of the Rock Band video game. So we're going to take a little poll.

Here's what I have in mind. Everyone gets to vote for the 3 FOTC songs that they think would be good choices for Rock Band. I will close the poll on Sunday night, tally up all our votes, and email our top 3 recommendations to Bret and Jemaine via their myspace.

Campaigning and discussion is welcome but just make sure you make your official votes obvious to me so I can add them up properly. Happy voting!! :supz:

Thanks, Peaches! So far I'm thinking Demon Woman and Hotties (a long shot I know but its my all time favorite fotc song). Still trying to figure out my 3rd choice...hmmm maybe Ladies of the World or Pencils in the Wind. Decisions decisions. :hrm:

Don't forget, everyone, it doesn't have to be a song from the HBO show. Any fotc song is fair game.

Demon Woman would be a good one. I do like Ladies of the World and maybe Pencils in the Wind. That one would be fun to sing. Well, they all would be fun to sing. :lol: Too bad I've never played Rock Band before. It would be easier to pick songs if I've actually played the game.

But Hotties would be awesome! :D

-Ladies of the World
-Issues
-Bowie - because then you get to pretend to be FOTC pretending to be Bowie, it's a two-for-one situation. ;)

So many I love are Omnichord or keyboard-heavy...... :( not enough guitar. Hurt Feelings is great on the bass and drums but lots of awesome omnichord and mini-piano and not much (if any) guitar.
Maybe they'll re-record them for Rock Star....?

Too bad it absolutley won't include Mutha Uckas, lol...

1. Ladies of the World- perfect! :)
2. Business Time
3. Demon Woman

I'll have to give the songs a listen and find out which ones have the most guitar/bass/drum before I post my selections :)

That's what I've been doing....lots of them are shockingly without drums or lead guitar....which is why I wondered if they'll do re-recordings especially for RB. :hrm:

I doubt it - they usually use original tracks for RB. And I'm not completely shocked that a lot don't have drums or a "lead" guitar - since it's just 2 guys with acoustic guitars (and the occasional rockenspiel/omnichord). But there are some...

I'm pretty sure Rock Band does re-record the songs so that they fit their 4 part system. I've only played it a couple of times though so I'm not an expert.

My official votes are:

Demon Woman
Hotties
Ladies of the World
