Rock Band is based on Harmonix' previous success with the Guitar Hero series of video games in which players used a guitar -shaped controller to simulate playing rock music.
The Rock Band Database As someone who started off with Guitar Hero 2 a decade ago and has owned almost every version of Rock Band released, I can't tell you how strange it feels just to write that sentence! It's hard to believe that what started off as my own little side project has ended up as the official song list!!!!!
I love playing Rock Band. I love having people over to play Rock Band. But if you've ever been to a Rock Band party, you know that there are two major frustrations that are almost inevitable: People can't search for music while others are playing.
People have a hard time finding a song they want to play — especially if they are unfamiliar with the game, or perhaps counter-intuitively, if there are a ton of songs in the library. It's no one's fault; song selection is an inherently not-fun process — doubly so for non-gamers.
This is the point in my story where I state the following facts: I am a web developer. I enjoy making stuff. What the hell — Why not!? We have the technology.
Visit the Rock Band Database! RBDB is not just a place where you can look through Rock Band song data, but where you can also create an account and add your own data into the mix; track the songs you own, the songs you want, your song ratings, and flag songs for Combine custom user data with some rich search and filter features and you have a great place to manage your existing library and find new music when you are outside of the game While it doesn't tie into your in-game library Here are some of my favorite features of RBDB: I'm still going through the tedious process of entering links into the database.
Comprehensive Filters - "show me only DLC songs that I marked as "wanted" and that are available for purchase" Advanced Searching - search for all Pop-Rock songs from the '80s with a guitar difficulty higher than 4 there are 3 , or all the Metal songs from the '90s with a bass difficulty higher than guitar also 3 songs. One-button Spotlight and Challenge Filter - show the Rivals challenge songs for the week. One-button "Last Call" and "Coming Soon" Filter - quickly show songs that are scheduled to be delisted in the store as well as songs that have been announced for release; don't miss out on purchasing tracks before they become unavailable!
Auto Setlist Maker - generate a random setlist from your current search results. Combine wanted songs with song ratings to help you narrow it down more. With a full RBDB API up and running others can now build their own applications and interfaces leveraging on the work I've already done—not just for song data, but for user data as well. If you're a dev and want to use the API, let me know! Website Overhaul - The site itself has grown so quickly with a ton of the features having been tacked on after launching in August.
What started out to be a simple site built with Google Material is now a terrible mish-mash of Material design and custom elements thrown together in a somewhat fugly Frankenstein's monster. So if you think the site could be better—I agree, and I'll be making changes soon! Near-term I would like to add dedicated flags for Rivals Challenge song plays per-instrument. After that I would like to introduce Crews into RBDB so you can see all the challenge songs that your Crew has played per instrument and even what songs each Crew member owns.
Eventually I would like to add some Crew matchmaking that will match people based on instrument and song ownership the more songs your Crew has access to, the better. Party Mode - The very first problem I set out to solve, ironically, hasn't been implemented yet. If you automate song selection as much as possible then more time will be spent playing music instead of selecting it. It would be a-ma-zing if RBDB could automatically queue those songs up in-game so you would have no music downtime in selection Harmonix, seriously Thanks for making such an amazingly fun game, and thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a part of this crazy ride with RBDB.

In addition to playing too much Rock Band, he maintains the Kryptonian. He doesn't work at Harmonix, but give him a break, you probably don't either.
