» Pony Fan Remixes Coming to Rock Band Network

Eurobeat Brony and TheLivingTombstone’s Discord (The Living Tombstone Remix) is headed to Rock Band Network. This marks the first official appearance of a fan related song in the indie authoring circuit for the game. Rock Band Network aims to bring lesser known acts to the downloadable content platform of the Rock Band game, and is a platform for musicians to get their music in front of a gamer audience without having to go through the normal Rock Band DLC channels. You could have a setlist where you go from Lynyrd Skynyrd to ponies without skipping a beat.

The song is not available for purchase yet, but it is in the final stages of authoring. You can watch a preview of the gameplay via this handy Youtube video. If you’re a Rock Band enthusiast, get ready to start analyzing charts and paths.

You can find the official press release behind the cut.

The popular cartoon “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic” has spawned an entire subculture of young adults, known as “Bronies,” who love the show for various reasons. A large amount of these bronies are artists, writers, musicians, and other creative types who draw inspiration from the show to create high-quality fan content that not only enrich their own love of the show, but also that of the entire community who enjoys these works. We’re proud to announce the first song to come to the Rock Band Network of this nature, which is the Living Tombstone remix of “Discord” by Eurobeat Brony!

Eurobeat Brony and The Living Tombstone are two of the most well-known brony musicians in the fandom. Eurobeat Brony is known for, well, eurobeat tracks! He creates his own versions of songs from the show as well as original tracks inspired by the show and its characters. “Discord” is inspired by the eponymous villain from Season 2, a reality warper who spreads chaos and disharmony wherever he goes. The version coming to Rock Band is a remix by electronic producer/composer The Living Tombstone, who in addition to remixes of other brony songs has created many original works, including “Dubstep Dishwasher” (the theme from the fan animation “Epic Wub Time”) and “Tom’s Dog” (the credits theme from TomSka’s animation “asdfmovie5”).

For those who may not be fans of MLP, “Discord (The Living Tombstone Remix)” should still be appealing for fans of upbeat electronic music. The song has gotten almost 2,000,000 views on YouTube, and has been featured on Rolling Stone and Equestria Daily. Keys players will definitely enjoy the solo near the end, and vocalists will have a blast singing the powerful harmonies.

    • Get the Xbox 360. It has all the RBN songs, and you’ll be able to grab this song as soon as it comes out.

    • Isn’t this song an “inspired by ponies” song and not an actual cover of a song from the show? If that’s the case, they don’t have to pay them anything. Covers aren’t allowed on RBN for this reason.

      However, if you want to sell your covers of music on iTunes, all you have to do is just pay the license fees. Check out this forum thread by user Octavia who did that very thing. http://mlponies.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1493

        • They do not have to get any license rights from Hasbro et al for this song because it was an original song, not a cover of a song on the show. The song is legally disconnected from the show, so they do not need any licenses or rights to do this.

          Regardless, RBN does not allow covers.
