      espher came up with this idea a while back, and now I’m making it slightly more public.


      Would anyone be interested in putting together a pack of famous internet meme/video songs? I’m thinking, like…famous parodies, oldies like Group X or Strong Bad, “Chocolate Rain”, “Friday”, “What What (In the Butt)”, anything by The Lonely Island, stuff like that. Normally I’m opposed to “gimmick songs”, but recently I’ve been realizing that when you’ve got a bunch of drunk nerds at a Rock Band night, this is what they want to play.


      If enough steam got going for this, I would probably author Group X – “Don’t Touch That”. Anyone else interested? Dibs are ripe for the calling!


        I would SOOO sing “What What (In the Butt)”…huge South Park fan <img decoding=” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_biggrin.gif” />


        Does “Keyboard Cat” count? That’d take like 2 seconds to chart, haha.


        EDIT:Then again “Shoes” by Liam Kyle Sullivan would be pretty good as well.


          I started a discussion about this (and other collaborations I’d be interested in) way back, as noted.


          My reasoning behind kind for wanting both “modern” (though I didn’t really elaborate in that thread as I was trying to pick three songs I’d want to collab on) and “classic” meme-type packs was exactly what pksage mentioned: nerds (myself included among them) eat that shit up like candy at events.


          My preference was for a “classic” one, since we got a few modern ones on RBN, so the ones I had suggested included TISM’s “

          “, Happatai’s “

          ” (optionally with misheard lyrics version, though the flash animation only does it for some of the song), Invasion of the Gabber Robots’ “

          “. I was also open to Dschinghis Khan’s “Moskau” and Daler Mehndi’s “Tunak Tunak Tun“. I felt those were the strongest candidates.


          I see Tay Zonday uses a Creative Commons license so I could probably try and do Chocolate Rain (aka. calling dibs on it) if nobody else called dibs on it yet


          Would you call Banana Phone a classic meme?

            Would you call Banana Phone a classic meme?


            I would, yes, given the age of that animation.


            Chocolate rain’s vocal track was released.


            The chart for “Chocolate Rain” is done! Tell me when you guys are done with your stuff if we are planing to upload it together as a themed pack still


            As someone with a friend who insists that every RB night begins with him singing and dancing along to I Like Trains by Lil Deuce Deuce, I fully endorse this idea. Sadly, I haven’t the time to contribute to it, but I look forward to the results. <img decoding=” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_smile.gif” />


            So, anymore updates on this? As I said, I have finished my chart for Chocolate Rain and is ready to put it into playtest whenever we feel it’s time.


              You can put it into test whenever it’s ready and done — if that just means it sits “finished” while waiting for the rest, that’s totally fine by me. <img decoding=” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_wink.gif”>

              Ah ok, I will do that then and just wait with adding it to the scheduler until the time is ready then


                Update on the above: We are officially doing this pack for August 30, so get your butts in gear!


                edit: If it looks like we’ll have a hard time getting three songs together, we can just FtV TrojanNemo’s “Gangnam Style” (which should be in the pack regardless) and use that.


                  I would love Gangnam Style to be a part of this but can’t commit to it. Anyone wants it I can provide the whole project.


                  I can also provide the project files for Rebecca Black’s Friday if anyone wants to do that.


                  Also, anyone thought of doing an FtV of the Nyan Cat song?
