On the Backs of Angels      "Fun buy" nascarfan19
I was very excited for this song's release. I was anticipating it when they announced Dream Theater returning to the game.

The song is complex and has a variety of notes and patterns. It's little to never repetitive. It also is a difficult one to FC because of that fast beat on the second verse, so players will be vying for the top spot based on who has the fastest hands.

I highly recommend!

You're Gonna Hear From Me      "Are those notes really there?" nascarfan19
After not playing this song for a while, I had to review the drum video for this song. While watching the verses, I considered "Are those notes really there?" From that video, it sounded like nothing was even there, like they were looking for an excuse to make the song harder for some.

Another thing I noted: Night Ranger really lost the flare between the 80s and the 00s. This song sounds nothing like the other two in the pack (even if they are re-records). Not much else to say, just thought I'd throw that out, for it might give an opinion for an interested buyer.

Don't Tell Me You Love Me      "Some repitition" nascarfan19
There was repitition throughout the song. When it wasn't hi-hats or ride cymbals, it was the note, kick, note, kick pattern.

The song also wasn't incredibly challenging in my opinion, considering the pattern used throughout the song was somewhat mediocre.

I know this is a famous Night Ranger song and everyone who loved them would get this song first. However, if you play drums, you're not really going to enjoy this song. Maybe guitar and vocals you will, but not drums.

(You Can Still) Rock In America      "My favorite Night Ranger song" nascarfan19
This song offers many things on the drums. In some areas, it's challenging. Throughout the song, the patterns differ and the whole song is fun to play!

Not only this, but I find guitar also fun to play, espically trying to pass those killer guitar solos!

The song is very fun overall. I recommend this buy!

Dreaming of Love      "Probably the best free song!" nascarfan19
This has to be my favorite free song in Rock Band. There is very little repitition, lots of different patterns, and these patterns involve some challenge since most of them require moving through all the pads at various times.

Overall, this song is very fun to play and challenging (except maybe bass).

Plus, it's free, so go buy it!

Let It All Hang Out      "No variety" nascarfan19
The song sounds fun on the outside, but it turns out the drum track has no variety and follows the same pattern throughout most of the song (hi-hats in the verses and crash cymbals in the choruses).

It sounds fun, but it turns out to be boring. Don't buy except for maybe vocals!

Beverly Hills      "What happened to the song?" nascarfan19
It doesn't sound wrong, it just doesn't seem fun to be on Rock Band. It was one of my favorite songs before Rock Band and I even requested for it, but it seems my request backfired on me. The song has no variety except for the challenging beginning drum roll. The rest of the time you'll be playing the hi-hat for at least most of the song.

If you expect this song to be fun, think again. Don't buy the song.

(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To      "Challenging yet fun!" nascarfan19
The song suprised me, espically never hearing it before. The song had a lot of variety, all having a challenging pattern that ended up sounding like a fun song on drums as well as guitar and vocals!

I enjoy this song a ton and recommend it for any instrument!

Any Man of Mine      "Choose vocals" nascarfan19
The drum pattern has absolutely no variety. The most challenging part is the part at the very end of every pre-chorus, and that still doesn't have any challenge since it only lasts for 2 seconds.

I think the most exciting thing you'll get out of song is the vocals, since Shania Twain is a great singer, so don't really bother with drums on this song.

This One's for the Girls      "Gets better at the end" nascarfan19
Many people would watch the first minute and assume that the song has no variety. However, at the end, the notes change up and the patterns vary, which is much more different then the first 2-3 minutes where it is just hi-hat. The end makes up how boring the beginning is, and gives it a 4 star rating.

Do not judge on the beginning, go to the end!

The Gambler      "Perfect mix of variety and fun" nascarfan19
The song has a lot of variety with various patterns throughout the song. Not many parts involve challenge, but the song is overall fun to listen to, and try out the vocals as well because it is very fun to sing!

I recommend this song for drummers or vocalists!

I Told You So      "One of the most fun songs in Country" nascarfan19
There isn't much variety except for the part in the middle and the end, involving challenge and just overall fun! However, it seems those two parts are the only parts that are fun and challenging. The rest of the notes are following pattern and are repetitive. So, I can't exactly say it's a 5 rating song.

She's Country      "Not challenging but fun to listen to!" nascarfan19
This song can easily be FCed and there is not much variety except for the part I consider a mini-guitar solo and the part before the final chorus. However, I think the song is fun to listen to and I like to play it from time to time!

Cry Lonely      "No challenge, no variety, no fun" nascarfan19
The song followed the same pattern throughout the entire song and from the somewhat slower pace, it may be the simplest song on Rock Band (besides Polly) in my opinion. Because it doesn't have challenge or variety, it's not any fun!

I don't recommend this song. If you want to buy it, buy it for some other instrument.

Good Time      "Same as several country songs" nascarfan19
Like most country songs on Rock Band, the pattern has no variety. However, this pattern has a different tune and creates a small challenge that makes up some of the boringness that the pattern offered to me.

Buy at your own risk!

Rock 'n' Roll High School      "Challenging...maybe too challenging" nascarfan19
This song has no variety at all. The song plays notes at the same pace for the entire song and repeats the same pattern most of the time (as have most of the Ramones songs).

The song is also too challenging, considering the pace and the pain that I experience in my right arm when I'm finished.

Buy at your own risk!

Lisztomania      "Very divided in variety and challenge" nascarfan19
The song only has three patterns:

1. Kick pedal then red pad, along with some extra notes
2. Same as above except the hi-hat added
3. The challenging part of a fast paced kick pedal and blue pad

The challenge came in at the third pattern. It was very hard to choose a 4 rating or a 5 rating.

I ended up giving it a 4 rating because there were only 3 patterns and only one of them were challenging

1901      "Enjoyable and lots of variety" nascarfan19
I enjoy playing this song a lot. A lot of it is hi-hat cymbals and kick pedal, but there are other parts that make it more fun.

The one part that confuses me is the backwards hi-hat pattern pre-chorus. I just find it confusing to have to use the weak hand (for most people) to hit something that is really hi-hat. Considering the sound, I would put it on the blue pad. However, that's what gives the song a lot of challenge!

The song is overall enjoyable to listen to and is fun on all instruments!

On the Road Again      "No variety, but lots of challenge" nascarfan19
The song has no variety. The whole song through is RRYRRRYRRRYR. The song is slow paced but still contains lots of notes (4 per bass kick), creating a little bit of a challenge, but it doesn't make up for the boringness of the chart.

Try buying for the vocals though, for they are much more fun to sing!

Swing      "Lots of variety and challenge" nascarfan19
If you minus the hi-hat cymbals that take up a lot of the song, the song has a lot of areas that include different notes and different patterns that are also fast paced and somewhat challenging. I recommend this song for drums!

Also, do not pay attention to the guitar rating! The guitar part is super fun, challenging and includes lots of variety!

Suds in the Bucket      "So, so boring" nascarfan19
There is no variety in this song. It only deals with the hi-hat cymbal the whole way through and you know how boring that is! The only challenge of it is the fast pace. There's not anything else to say about it except not to buy it for the drums.

Me and My Gang      "Lots of variety and lots of fun!" nascarfan19
This isn't the most fun song I've played before, but it still has a fun factor involved and there is a lot of variety, espically after you get through the first two verses.

The vocals are also very fun too. I'm not suprised it's one of the most sold songs. Go ahead and buy this song!

Gone      "Little challenge, little variety" nascarfan19
This song doesn't change very often in terms of variety. Only a few parts become fast and create a challenge for that 5-second area. Also, the verses are mainly the hi-hat cymbal and the chorus is the ride cymbal.

I did find the vocals and guitar fun, so buy this song unless you only play drums!

She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy      "Not exactly fun to play" nascarfan19
The song does have a variety of notes in it and has an addicting tune. However, it doesn't have notes or a pattern that I couldn't find in another song, so I can't say I'm crazy for it.

You can buy at your risk, but you could probably find this sort of chart on RB2.

Am I Crazy      "Great considering the price!" nascarfan19
There is a lot of variety in this song, as well as having a little bit of challenge throughout it.

I found the beginning boring considering most of it (near all of it) was kick pedal for about 30 seconds.

However, there were many fast parts in the song and it provided challenge that made up the boringness in the beginning.

Plus, it's free, so go buy it!
