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!July 15, 2013 at 3:40 am #403041TrojanNemoParticipant
I would SOOO sing “What What (In the Butt)”…huge South Park fan ” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_biggrin.gif” />July 15, 2013 at 4:07 am #403042
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.July 15, 2013 at 10:49 am #403045
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’ “July 15, 2013 at 11:32 am #403046
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 yetJuly 15, 2013 at 12:31 pm #403048
Would you call Banana Phone a classic meme?July 15, 2013 at 12:38 pm #403049Would you call Banana Phone a classic meme?
I would, yes, given the age of that animation.July 15, 2013 at 7:19 pm #403069
Chocolate rain’s vocal track was released.July 17, 2013 at 11:38 am #403121
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 stillJuly 20, 2013 at 8:57 pm #403295
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. ” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_smile.gif” />August 1, 2013 at 4:23 pm #403807
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.August 1, 2013 at 4:28 pm #403808
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. ” src=”/wp-content/uploads/invision_emoticons/default_SA_wink.gif”>August 1, 2013 at 4:54 pm #403810You 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. ” 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 thenAugust 2, 2013 at 5:12 pm #403890pksageKeymaster
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.August 2, 2013 at 6:47 pm #403906TrojanNemoParticipant
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?
