It’s week two of our C3 anniversary extravaganza! Next Monday (Mar 17) is St. Patrick’s Day, and this week’s 3-pack celebrates three Irish rock bands and C3’s history of recognizing holidays in general. Even if your friends’ interest in Rock Band is waning, holiday parties with holiday songs are a great way to get them engaged! In the past year, we’ve done a Valentine’s Day pack (and an Anti-Valentine’s pack), a New Year’s Eve dance party pack, two Christmas packs, three Halloween packs, a Fourth of July pack, and even a St. Andrew’s Day pack. Wow! Much holiday. Very celebrate. Amaze.
Today’s special bonus prize is a huge Daft Punk pack, which is itself another nod to the C3 legacy — Daft Punk C01, also by Nightmare Lyra, was released in December.
Week 1 (March 7): Great Covers C02
Week 2 (March 14): St. Patrick’s Day
Week 3 (March 21): ???
Week 4 (March 28): ???
Week 5 (April 4): ???
The 1-Year Anniversary Week (April 11): ???
Why should you download these songs?
- “Orpheus” – This song (by Northern Irish band Ash) has fast, energetic drums and some fairly challenging guitar riffs. You may know it from the soundtrack of Burnout 3: Takedown.
- “Zombie” – One of the most Irish-y famous rock songs of all time (even if it’s not actually about the IRA) shouldn’t require any persuasion. How did this song go this long without being in RB?
- “Nowhere” – Hard rock? Yes. Awesome hard rock guitar riffs? Yes. More great ’90s in this pack? Another band from Northern Ireland? Aye, lad, you better believe it!
- “Aerodynamic” – Plenty of tracks from Discovery, Daft Punk’s best album (I WILL FIGHT YOU ABOUT THIS), this week! This one is famous for its blistering guitar riff that lasts almost the entire song. Can you handle it on five buttons? How about on Pro Guitar, courtesy of AddyMilldike?
- “Around the World” – , around the world. Around the world, around the world. Around the world, around the world. Around the world, around the world. Around the world, around the world.
- “Da Funk / Daftendirekt (Live)” – From the now-famous Alive 2007 live album. If one Daft Punk song per song isn’t enough for you, how about at least two and half songs per song, counting all of the samples?
- “Digital Love” – One of the happiest songs of all time, and the perfect score to use while saving your favorite blue-skinned band from a dimensional rift. Also one of the most “Rock-Band-y” songs of the pack, with actual verses and a really hard guitar solo and everything!
- “Face to Face” – The third of our four Discovery tracks. Good on everything, but especially on vocals, where it rivals “Digital Love” for singability.
- “Something About Us” – This down-tempo track, the only From the Vault release this week, closes out the pack. Compared to its pre-C3 release, this song now has OD, a custom venue, reductions, and other areas of general polish.
See you next Friday!
