GOB: “You want us for Use Your Illusion?”
Tony Wonder: “Actually, some band has got the rights to that title, so I’m thinking, like…Use Your Illusion II?”
Got some hot ham tracks for you this week! So good for Rock Band; and yet there’s a smack of ham to them.
farottone continues Guns N’ Roses’ triumphant party-crashing of the C3 library with three huge songs from Use Your Illusion I. Appetite isn’t the only GnR album that was sorely absent from official DLC, and nothing will drive that point home better than these tracks. The power ballad “Don’t Cry” opens the pack, with the (Original) moniker to separate it from the (Alt. Lyrics) version released on Use Your Illusion II. “Live and Let Die” — which would have fit right in with our covers week — invites you to put on a tuxedo, shoot a bunch of Russians, and participate in an over-the-top poker game in Montenegro. The epic “November Rain” closes out the pack, giving you plenty of excuses this week to bust out your lighter and sway slowly back and forth. Though, um, not while you’re playing the songs. And preferably not under a smoke detector.
This week marks Nyxyxylyth’s third ELO song, the catchy “Sweet Talkin’ Woman”. Why did we release these on separate weeks instead of as a pack? Because we could, of course! “Sweet Talkin’ Woman” features some excellent call-and-response vocals, and is a great way to fill out your classic rock library.
RyanHYK steps in this week with another “why didn’t they get DLC?” band: Primus! Apparently Harmonix agreed that Primus sucks, so they only got one song (“Jerry Was a Race Car Driver”) on the RB3 disc. “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver” brings back the crazy bassline you associate with Primus, and a fun guitar line and 2x Bass Pedal chart with it.
Finally, TrojanNemo brings back three of his best in this week’s From the Vault throwback. Keane is a pretty famous British band, but if you haven’t heard of them, imagine that Muse, Oasis, and the Neon Trees had some kind of weird 3-way baby. “Everybody’s Changing”, “Is It Any Wonder?”, and “Somewhere Only We Know” are all cut from the same cloth, but it’s a really nice cloth! If you like alt-rock at all, I highly recommend that you check these out. (And “Is It Any Wonder?” has full multitrack support!)
