A red X denotes Pro Guitar/Pro Bass, a blue M denotes full multitracks, and a blue K denotes a “karaoke” multitrack (separated vocals).


Another special news bulletin! As of today, all C3 customs will also be available for Phase Shift! It might take us a few days to convert the entire back catalog, but yeah, everything we release will now work on your favorite Rock Band PC clone. TrojanNemo has been hard at work to make this possible, and an updated version of his custom song utility will be out soon to let you convert your own non-C3 customs to Phase Shift. Super cool!

Ah, the ’90s. A magical time. The Internet! Nirvana! The end of the Cold War (mostly)! But way more important than any of these things, obviously, is pop music. This week, farottone and drummerockband help us explore this wonderland. The pack includes Edwyn Collins’s “A Girl Like You” (1994), PotUS’s cover of “Video Killed the Radio Star” (1997), and Hanson’s iconic “MMMBop” (1997). Yep! You read that right. Bust it out at your next bar night and record it for us.

Continuing the ’90s theme (but definitely not the pop), RyanHYK also hooks us up with Godsmack’s “Whatever”. This song is the first single from the band’s 1998 debut album, which has since gone 4x Platinum. “Whatever” joins “I Stand Alone” as two well-known Godsmack songs in the RB library.

Two of this week’s FtV offerings also shore up a band’s RB presence. Maroon 5 has been in Rock Band since 2009, and with this week’s additions of “Harder to Breathe” and “She Will Be Loved”, we have pretty much all of their greatest hits. If you’re not sick of Adam Levine’s voice in every freaking song on the radio right now, these GH ports by TrojanNemo are the songs for you! If you prefer to break off a few fingers when you play, though, check out “We Are One”, authored by Nightmare Lyre and TrojanNemo. Buckethead is, well, Buckethead, and this song delivers what you would expect it to. And it has Serj Tankian!

Updates to these From the Vault songs vs. their original custom releases:

  • “Harder to Breathe” – New stems (w/ keys), added keys/PK charts, many drum fixes, many vocals fixes, new venue, new OD/fills/etc.
  • “She Will Be Loved” – New stems (w/ crowd audio), added keys/PK charts, added harmonies, many drum fixes, new venue, new OD/fills/etc.
  • “We Are One” – Changes to guitar and bass, new count-in, other small changes

Finally, we’ve also got a Rock Band Harmonies Project release today, from espher, MarsPhoenix, thomeval, and GreenPanda12! Upgraded songs include Metallica 01 and all of the European songs from that one week in 2008. This week even includes some Keys upgrades! Fancy! Check the bottom of this post for a full list of upgrades.

See you next Friday!
