Thanks guys, you nearly made me shit myself as soon as I saw the topic title. Getting everything, thanks so flippin' much. Who knows where we'd be without C3.

How come there's never a link to the Harmonies Updates in the news post on the front page? Would make things easier, whether it's a link to the spreadsheet or espher's thread.

It didn't come in a separate article. Just read further down and you'll find the updates and the link to the spreadsheet.

Big pack. I've never heard much (or anything) of Weird Al but it seems like these are mostly parody songs since they're all Novelty. I'm glad the converts got up as soon as the songs were made available. Hardware Store may be missing temporarily, but it can also be downloaded here.

I completely missed the RBHP releases this week but I should have them ready within the next 12 hours. I definitely need to grab those The Offspring upgrades!

Fixed.

This genuinely surprises me. May I ask in what country you grew up? In the United States, Weird Al is kind of a universal constant.

Really loving this pack. Been a fan of Weird Al for a long time now, and I'm glad we can finally play his songs on Rock Band. I'm hoping we can do a second pack someday, so that we can get those missing hits that are "subtly" brought up in the blog post ;)

I see the updates, but there's no links past the Weird Al Visualizer images.

It's linked earlier in the post. RBHP is not officially part of C3; it's our sister project, and notifications of its updates are included as a convenience and not as the official download source. (That would be the RBHP site itself and its Twitter feed and stuff.)

I'll add a link there anyway.

Geez, it was hard to see. Bolding it would help since I went straight down to the list of songs upgraded and didn't see anything there.

I'll give anyone an cookie if they can 100% the guitar solo on "Eat It" on expert.

Congratulations to everybody involved (C3 minus me, essentially, it seems. :D ), this is the kind of team effort that makes me proud we have a team. :)

To all the people not involved: you have no idea how much effort the guys put into this in terms of preparation and details, they deserve a ton of credit!

Dude. What did I say in my post? Just bookmark the RBHP spreadsheet. We're never going to offer direct download links here, so you'll have to go there anyway.

IF YOU DOWNLOADED PRETTY FLY FOR A RABBI BEFORE THIS POST, PLEASE RE-DOWNLOAD IT. That version had an animation bug that results in a fixed camera angle for the entire song. The current version should fix it.

Ah, glad that got fixed. I noticed it while playing this morning.
However, in my version of "Dare to be Stupid" the drummer is inanimate.

This is actually pretty awesome. I'll pass on the parodies, but I'd probably get the original songs, especially Hardware Store (why is it rated FF? It has a line about "automatic circumsizers"!).
Suckers!

Should be okay now.

Awesome job everybody. I've been a Weird Al fan since he was just a call-in guy on the Dr. Demento Show in the "Stop Draggin' My Car Around" days.
