As I read Excremento's Songs That SHOULD be
in Guitar Hero. I gotsta thinkin, and thinkin's bad, for me has a small brain. But onto the bloggage! I wondered what songs should be in Rock Band? I know that I get to rock out on the drums like Neil Peart on Tom Sawyer, wail like Chris Cornell in Black Hole Sun, and grind the strings like Billy Corgan and James Iha on Cherub Rock. But what other songs would rock, and might still be on the list that they haven't revealed to us?
This edition is full of "stuff". Easily offended turn back now!! You had your chance, this is going to be a weird one. Hold on to ye britches.
Osaka Popstar-Shaolin Monkeys
I enjoy some punk, mainly Misfits, because I want to love Glen Danzig to death. That's how I happened to come across Osaka Popstar. Osaka Popstar was created and fronted by John Cafiero and it's all about anime. The only reason I stumbled upon this band was because Jerry Only plays bass for the band. It's complete and utterly annoying to me but I put it on the list because I'm sure it would be fun to play nonetheless. With old punk beats from Marky Ramone, bass lines from Jerry Only, and some "different" vocals by Cafiero. Fans of this band may also enjoy a Teen Titans band.
Nashville Pussy-Going Down Swinging
Sweet sweet old rock and roll is what comes to mind when you first hear Nashville Pussy. The name might be off-putting....well it is off-putting and for good reason. This band isn't for the weak of heart. It's a lot like Ted Nugent, but crazier. Almost an homage to easier days, sitting on your porch chewing tobaccey, while your cousins sex each other up, and your wife greases up the pig. The massive amounts of cowbell never hurt either.
Eagles Of Death Metal-I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News)
A great band in many aspects, great vocals, amazing drumming, and guitars to boot! Interesting doesn't even start to describe EODM. The vocals and back up vocals are meld perfectly you'd think it was one person. Eagles of Death Metal is almost a throw back to old rock music that's been turned up to 11.
Mindless Self Indulgence-Stupid MF
I've been a fan of MSI since Frankenstein Girls Will Seem Strangely Sexy mostly because of the brash lyrics and the uniqueness of Jimmy Urine's vocals. The singing part of this song could probably be comparable to Reign In Blood on Guitar Hero III. It's so fast and constantly changing pace and half the time you probably wouldn't be able to pronounce the words fast enough. The guitar and drum parts are full of quick stopping and starting, like a schoolyard game of "Red Light Green Light".
That's it for now, I'm glad you read all the way to the end, if you have any suggestions throw em up! Next week, moar Anthrax!!! read
