Title: If the Melvins were featured on the Rock Band game...
Post by: Mad Arab on January 29, 2009, 01:55:33 PM
and you could only pick one song from their entire collection, which one would it be?

I flipped a coin  for either Honey Bucket or Oven.

Honey Bucket it is.

On a related note..  I just remembered that Guitar Hero already featured a pretty great slow 'n' heavy song:

Megasus - Red Lottery (http://www.sendspace.com/file/99luxi)

If they used one I would see The Kicking Machine.

But I think Dog Island would be fun.

What would be wrong with that? I think that would be awesome.

Rock Band - Melvins Edition

Thats got a great ring to it.

Melvins Rock band with double drum kit....that'd be fun in a nutzo sense.

I think suitable songs for a MElvins GUITAR Hero?

- Boris
- Eye Flys
- Zodiac
- The Bit
- Bar-X-The-Rocking-M
- Hog Leg
- The Bloated Pope
- The Talking Horse
- Colossus of Destiny for a "mental challenge"

I think Guitar Hero needs more 15-50 minute songs, just to fuck with the ADD children's patience.

Brian gibson, bassist for Lightning bolt, drums for them. I think its one of my most anticipated releases.

Rock Band 2 has some unexpected tracks on it, like Painkiller by Judas Priest but some of the bands are lame and I have never heard of some of them. Bang Camaro? Anarchy Club? Meh...

You can play bass in the new Guitar Hero.

Did y'all know there's a hack where you add your own songs to Guitar Hero? It's very complicated and time consuming though, my brother-in-law was kinda obsessed with it for awhile. He just added songs that other people had done that he downloaded. I thought about doing some Melvins tracks, but I ain't got the patience for it.

Boris so the kiddies cry about playin the same notes over and over for 8 plus minutes
Title: Re: If the Melvins were featured on the Rock Band game...
Post by: Mad Arab on January 31, 2009, 06:41:30 AM
That would be funny. It would make it funnier if you went about increasing the difficulty setting higher, the song would get slower and longer until it reached its normal speed and song length. Make the ADD kids think Boris is a fast. short song and then get surprised when they get cocky and go for the HARD and EXPERT settings.

Yeah but that song kinda sucks.  At least to play it it does.

For me, I think it's a toss between It's Shoved and Copache.  I know both are relatively short and fast, not very Melvins-esque in nature, but they'd be perfect if they're nearly as fun to play as they are to listen to.  Plus, I think those two songs are the quintessential Melvins "starter" songs; anytime I want to pop someone's Melvins-cherry, I play them It's Shoved and Copache. 

Maybe, with those two songs, we could convert the unwashed masses of Rock Band/Guitar Hero consumers and begin the Melvins plan for New World Order!

The Melvins are mentioned in Rock Band but only in passing as the band Kurt Cobain auditioned for.

He wasn't in the band when they recorded Red Lottery. But he plays on the new song that's in Rock Band, and he tears that shit up.

No you are not a nerd. I recently got into the whole Rock Band thing. Honestly I think it is the best all around family game in recent times. I have a teenage son and a daughter who is about to be a teenager. My wife, myself and the kids all like Rock Band 1 and 2 alot.

The rock band forums are funny.  I do my damndest not to hijack other threads asking for more Paramore or Linkin Park.
Instead I just focus on trying to bump the underrated or lesser known bands.

And you are right Rock band is a really fun family game which can get lots of folks (and kids)  interested in music they never would have heard before.  Plus as silly as it sounds it does teach you a lot about rhythm and timing (you should have seen me try to play drums for the first time).

A little mike patton in the corner small body massive head the nods at you/points/screams and you have to change would be great.

That would be amazing. plus you probably wouldn't just get a normal guitar it would be something different. Like to play the hooch you have to wear a helmet full of water and get through it all with out breathing. I rekon i could do it.
