The link for this song is not working.  Saying that this custom can't be found.  

 

It was removed, because the song became official Rock Band 4 DLC.

Ah, I didn't realize. I searched in the database and it didn't show up as DLC, it just wasn't there.

Hey all! It's about time I updated my releases from C3G and C3X, so there they are!

"Take a Picture" is one of my favorite songs of all time. Every time I'm agitated or otherwise frustrated I put this on and it calms me and makes me feel better instantly. Richard Patrick's amazing voice, a calm beat, beautiful layered guitars, everything about it is just so soothing, despite the content of the song's lyrics.

GreenPanda12 - bass, keys, vocals, drum reductions, venue
Rocker1999 - Stem mixing

 

Because this one also hasn't been done yet...for some reason. This has never really been my kind of music but it's a catchy song and there were stems so I couldn't say no. Actually most of this ended up being charted by GreenPanda, I did guitar and drums and reworked the keys a bit but Panda did an amazing job with everything else, especially those tricky vocals. Shout-out to Rocker for mixing the previously unmixed stems wonderfully.

oscarj08 - drums
Sideshow - setup, original conversions

 

This one had actually been on my radar for some time. It wasn't the first time I approached Sideshow requesting to collab with upgrading oscar's old drum charts and it was nice to work with them again. Thanks for letting me upgrade your chart! (also swing beats suck)

Catchy Latin rock beat, crazy organ and guitar solos, and a crap ton of percussion...yep, it's a Santana song. But really, "my house is dark and my pots are cold"? What does that even mean? Is this the OG "women should be in the kitchen"?

We've had a fair amount of DMB in Rock Band but somehow danced all around his biggest hit. Very sexual lyrics can be a bit off-putting when you're actively listening to them and realizing how "adult" this song is for a seemingly family-friendly tune but Dave's impressive voice and calm guitars build up to one of the best outros ever in one of the most beautiful hits of the 90s.

 

And drummers...I'm sorry.

To start the kickoff for C3X I wanted to throw in something but being a bit burnt out and fried from getting C3G assembled I needed something that wouldn't take much work and this was the closest to done I had. It's simple but a fun warmup song to get all your band members ready to play for the night or if you want a easy song to cool down from your last prog metal setlist. Technically it's an instrumental but Kate and Cindy do some harmonies on what could be considered the equivalent of a chorus.

 

Thank you all as always for checking out my customs. C3X will keep me pretty busy but will result in this thread being updated a lot more. Stay tuned! :)

Hello all,

 

Another year, another C3X release, and another pack of some awesome hits from a stable hair metal band's opus magnum. Hysteria was released on 3 August 1987 and quickly became Def Leppard's best-selling album, selling over 25 million copies worldwide and spawning seven hit singles, two of which are seen below. The album charted at #1 on both the Billboard 200 and the UK Albums Chart.

The sixth and final release from Hysteria, "Rocket" features a driving chorus, a powerful bass, and an extended breakdown with a tribal drum beat. Producer Mutt Lange used backmasking effects to feature the line "We're fighting with the gods of war" (from "Gods of War", also on Hysteria) sung backward throughout the track, omitted from the heavily edited single version. The words "Love" and "Bites" (from "Love Bites") are also used as a sonic effect midway throughout the song, in order to replicate the sounds of a rocket launch through musical samples.

The music video for the song was the second to feature Def Leppard in a live arena setting. On 12–13 February 1988, the band recorded two shows at the McNichols Arena here in Denver, Colorado for a future live film release. However, a month later, "Armageddon It" was set to be released as the sixth single off the popular Hysteria album and a promo video clip was urgently needed. From the band's end, there was hesitation to film another concept video. Although they were happy with the results for "Hysteria" and "Animal", they were very unsatisfied with the way "Pour Some Sugar on Me" had turned out for its concept. Therefore, an idea was pitched to quickly create a video edited from the Denver footage. It was another hit in the UK, reaching the Top 20. Months later, it was released in the United States and was even more successful, reaching the Top 3 (their fourth top 10 hit in the US).

 

Thank you all as always, and Happy New Year!

 

(also if you're wondering just where in the hell Ozzy is, don't worry, I have not forgotten)
