No probs, I was just explaining why the reaction. I'm sure you're gonna love more than a few Genesis songs. ;)


I kinda love every song by Genesis. I'll most likely end up getting all 80... So ye'h... (Genesis is one of the few bands/musicians that I truly love a lot. Up there with The Aviators and The Beatles).

Rawr! I'm a fluffy space raptor!

You claim you "truly love" genesis but didn't recognize selling england by the pound as one of their albums?

I have to give you a big THANK YOU in advance for all the hard work! :)
Like everybody said it's incredible to imagine what it took to create FB on all 80 tracks with the C3 quality in mind.
Can't wait to play all this with my buddies... :dance:

And before you play them, you get to convert them all! :D Seriously, brew some coffee because this might take you a while. :v:

LOL, yeah believe it or not but this came to my mind when I saw it were 80 songs at once. :blush:
But then again... I was excited after all! :D

The vocals didn't sound like Genesis to me actually and I don't know every album by heart... I never do. I just know the songs themselves.

It actually is curious just how Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel *sound* a like but *sing* very differently. When they sing harmonies they are actually pretty similar, but when you listen to Gabriel in early Genesis and Collins in things like Abacab, Invisible Touch, etc. they obviously have a vert different way of singing.

I had no idea it was collins singing on "more fool me" until I read about it on the net. Listening to it now I can certainly hear a difference, but for me it's kind of like technical mistakes in films or television, where you usually don't really notice them until they're pointed out to you. Collins really was the perfect replacement for gabriel after he left.

That and For Absent Friends, the only 2 songs where Phil Collins took lead before Gabriel left. And yes, you have no idea how many people react just like you did. Then again, when a song is sung with some presence, you just can't mix the 2 up. Of course, as you point out, once you know you notice, but otherwise it's difficult. Carpet Crawlers is another good example.

I'm surprised nobody started a "guess which songs we'll get that we don't know of yet" thread or discussion. :D

I don't think my poor little flash drive will be able to handle this many songs, but i'll do everything I can to fit all the 70's stuff on there, especially the 2 albums. The lamb and selling england are two of my favorite albums of all time.


I was thinking the same thing. Obviously Kingston contracted C3 to create this monstrosity to sell more USB drives. Congrats on your windfall C3. Bunch of sell outs. /sarcasm :D

I can't express enough how excited I am for this pack. I've been playing on PS3 since RB2, mostly drums and vocals. I got a cheap XBox a couple years ago that I barely used, until I discovered customs. My IONs weren't compatible, but I could do vocals.

Last year, I replaced my PS3 IONs with a Roland TD-6 e-kit, and a couple months back I bought the XBox Midi Pro Adapter so maybe I can finally play drums on the customs.

And then this pack was announced. The band I wanted more than any other, finally comes to Rock Band. 80 SONGS!!!! That's 4 shy of the RB3 disc release.

And I finally get sing and play drums to actual, real Genesis songs.

Looks like I'm developing a case of the flu next Friday and calling in sick.

I haven't played Rock Band in well over a year, but I still check C3 every week. I actually just made a profile to say that not only am I glad that one of my favourite albums of all time is being brought to Rock Band, but also that I legitimately gasped at The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway.

Really cool job guys, I love it.

Probably a good idea. Half the day spent fretting about which song to play first, and then the rest of the day unable to play because I won't be able to see the charts due to my weeping from sheer joy.

Dang, are you saying nothing C3 has released in the past year+ has made you want to play Rock Band? That is crazy talk!

Awesome work guys. Genesis is one of the bands that I know I heard of, but swore I didn't know any of their songs. Then when one of their songs comes on, I'll go, Thats' them? Cool, I know this song. That actually happened when watching the final teaser trailer that was posted.

I've mostly been playing Rocksmith since Harmonix shut the door on DLC and feel it's really awkward going from a full guitar to my itty-bitty Rock Band controller, but don't get me wrong, along with these 80 songs I'll be getting King Crimson, Led Zeppelin, Cake and any Radiohead and Pink Floyd I can get my hands on. One of the reasons I keep up to date with C3's releases is the variety of music. Music games have always been a great place to discover new bands.

I've just recently discovered this site about a month or so ago, and am really impressed by all the amazing content everyone's managed to produce, but this release really trumps all. Genesis is probably my favorite band, and Harmonix not releasing any material seemed a real missed opportunity. To see that this is being corrected with an eighty song release is absolutely astounding. Thanks for all the tremendous effort that must have gone into this. I can' t be more pleased with this news (it inspired me to register an account, after all).

That said, I can't help but speculate what songs will be chosen besides those that have been announced. By my count there's fifty songs shown so far. Here's hoping to see The Knife, Watcher of the Skies, Dance on a Volcano, Jesus He Knows Me, basically the whole first side of Abacab, and (dare I ask?) Supper's Ready.
