The Rifftones on Rock Band?
« on: January 14, 2010, 11:38:25 AM »
Dear Mike,

I love The Rifftones! I was wondering if you would consider putting up some songs for download on Rock Band? Harmonix, Rock Band's developer, has set up a new medium for bands and labels to chart and sell their songs called the Rock Band Network.

If you want more info on the process, go to these sites:

1. http://creators.rockband.com/
2. http://tinyurl.com/mtv-to-launch
3. http://tinyurl.com/press-release-rbn

If anything, I would be willing to chart the songs for you guys for FREE (my payment would be enjoying these songs with my friends  ;D), then all you have to do is upload them and reap the profits.

PLEASE LET THIS HAPPEN!!! I want to rock out to Sparkly Vampires!!!  :rimshot: 8)

I think MrTorso has been looking at trying to do stuff like this.  (Not necessarily with Rifftones, but I'd bet he'd give it a shot.)

Hell, if they can get Cartman singing "Poker Face", I figure they'd be up for the Rifftones.

Havent tried the Cartman version yet, do they have the lyrics that he changed for it in the episode or what?

No the only real difference (aside from it being his his voice, obviously) is he goes up half an octave on the vocals near the end, kinda like he did on Come Sail Away when he was exhausted

I'm not sure if he sounds exhausted (I'll have to play it again to be sure) or if they just decided to change it up and throw players a curveball

That's good, it would've been kinda lame if they used the lyrics from the show (the joke would be out of context.) Haha Cartman singing Come Sail Away is one of my all time favorite South Park moments.

Since Rock band will have Keys now the RiffTones might work.
