There's more coming. You won't be disappointed. I bet you can imagine that they take a considerably greater amount of time and effort to chart when compared to something like "Human Fly".   That b

Maple syrup yucky!!! Send chocolatey sauce What kind of smokes?

OK, so suggestions. Buckle up. I would play the heck out of any of these.


Holy crap does our country have some great music or what?


Some of the ones on your list are already in progress by our Canadian Rock Supergroup led by MrPrez. I won't tell you which ones though. ;)

Man am I glad I asked for suggestions! That's a huge huge list of great songs. And some of these are already in progress. I'm going to go over this list carefully. Thanks for taking the time to write all that out for everyone. There really needs to be some Stompin' Tom.


Great comments, and as long as you guys are enjoying the customs I can't see myself stopping.


The next pack is well underway, and even better than last time, there are seven different authors contributing their talents. More details coming soon. Keep the suggestions coming.

If you're looking for classic Canadian content for your nest pack, consider a BTO spotlight with opening acts such as Neil Young, Crowbar (Oh What a Feeling), Lighthouse (Sunny Days or One Fine Morning), Payolas (Eyes of a Stranger), ugh, so many great choices.


If you're looking for fresh new stuff, check out July Talk, Strumbellas, Mother Mother, Arkells, Sam Roberts Band, Metric, and The Zolas.


Thanks for your awesome packs. These are some of the all time best packs. Thanks for all the Hip, BNL and Sloan!

Great suggestions too, forgot all about Crowbar. :) That's great.

A lot of people have mentioned that they are also fans of Sealab 2021 and I thought it would be fun to do this song as a goof for April Fools. Unfortunately I got called away that day and missed the chance to upload it. Better late than never.

There is a special message from Captain Murphy at the end.

This is my 50th finished custom! 5 months. 10 songs/month, 2/week. Sounds about right. Not including all my collaborations in that total either, there's been quite a few of those too.

Back when Harmonix put out the Thin Lizzy Pack, I downloaded it in great anticipation and was disappointed to see and hear the live versions of these classic songs. Not that they're terrible. They played the songs at a much faster tempo, so that's not great. Phil Lynott didn't really try that hard on the vocals. The drums are extremely difficult (for me at least).

I'm happy to bring you the studio version, the one everyone knows, with all the issues I didn't like fixed. Please enjoy this one. I made a start on Thin Lizzy's "The Rocker" but have put that one on the back burner, Jailbreak might be the only one of theirs that I will do.

(I did check with an admin before starting this song, studio versions of live songs are allowed.)

Until next time :)

Thanks for all your effort, miracle workers. Maybe one day when I'm not brainfried at the end of the day from work + kids, I can join your tribe. For now, I reap the rewards and repay with praise.


Oh, and another chunk of suggestions, because holy crap how did I forget Canada's Pixies?


Eric's Trip: Viewmaster, Feeling Around, Smother, Follow, and Blinded because I really want to see how people chart that ... thing ... Julie does with her voice at the end of the bridge.



Also, thanks for the Thin Lizzy, Prez. That was a solid "wait, what, that hasn't been done yet?" pick.

Thanks again everyone.

A generous author just sent me the stems for Jailbreak! And another one suggested some guitar chart changes and moving what I have already done to the keyboard as the rhythm part. I'm on board with those changes, so expect an update in a couple weeks. I like to take my time with updates in case there are any more issues to fix, then I'm not posting update after update. I prefer just one update.

Sweet baby Jesus on Fire!! Back from my short vacation, with some customs featuring Puscifer!

If you're wondering "Who or what is Puscifer" it's Maynard from Tool's side band. If you are a fan of Tool and haven't heard this song before, well then say hello to your new favourite song!




Milla as in the actress Milla Jovovich who is an occasional singer with Puscifer.


Enjoy! I am not going to do any more Puscifer for the time being. Next will be a three pack from Richard Cheese. I'll have news on Canada 150 Pack #3 next week.

'Richard Cheese'???.......for real??

I haven't heard of him before but his name....I don't know whether to gag or bust up or both! :D


I'm not familiar with Puscifier or the afore mentioned artist but I will give it a listen. Thanks for your efforts!

Looking forward to Canada 150 #3 :rock:


(Just did a wiki on R. Cheese. This sounds like fun!) :cool:

Thanks for these Mr. Prez.

Appreciate your hard work & kindness of sharing it with us.


I really hope at some point Maynard gets back with Tool members. :P


Just check it out Funk Man, if you like Tool you'll enjoy Puscifer !

Tool is currently working on their new album

As a casual fan of Tool, they've been working on the new album for years and years. However according to Metacritic, there is a new album by A Perfect Circle coming out in 2017 so I highly doubt we'll also see one from Tool.

Also new Queens of the Stone Age, Alt-J, LCD Soundsystem and Modest Mouse. Lots to look forward to.

Everything is better with cheese, even Rock Band.

Me again with a brand new artist in Rock Band, Richard Cheese! Richard Cheese is a lounge singer in Las Vegas who does amazing lounge versions of popular songs. Check these out!

If you've seen 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake, then you've heard this first song, it was featured during one of the better zombie-kill montages.

Should I do more Richard Cheese (hint: YES I AM)? Leave me a comment with your song choices.

UP NEXT: Indie Rock 4-Pack with Alt-J, LCD Soundsystem and TV On The Radio
