Get used to doing the same thing over, and over, AND OVER... PuppetMasterIX
I'll say it right now: This is easily the worst official DLC bass chart I have seen in a very long time. The reason is simple: It consists of a very simple, easy pattern that repeats throughout the entire song.

The quote-unquote "engaging" riff is five yellows (split up by some odd breaks) followed by four straight greens. Only two frets are used in the entire song, and the only two or three deviations from this pattern omit notes without adding anything else.

It's hard for me to go into any more detail than that. It doesn't quite hit the eleventh layer of Hell like the infamous "So What'cha Want", but it buries itself a whole lot closer than anything I've witnessed in months. Guitar is pretty bad too, but to be fair, it at least has some variation to it along with the fact that it actually uses the whole fretboard (it doesn't make it good, but it at least makes it tolerable enough to sustain the determination to finish the song). Bassists, however, should avoid this like the plague. It's easily one of the worst bass tracks the marketplace has ever seen. The Pro Bass upgrade isn't worth getting either, unless you really, really want to say you have a Pro Bass FC that isn't "Imagine".

Boring as hell Dr Sardonicus
So far this year, we've had some boring guitar songs in Rock Band. Hall & Oates spring to mind. But out of all the ones I've played, I think Get the Party Started is the worst so far. In this song, the main riff is orange to a chord lower on the neck, with an occasional single note after a chord. Simply, this is the whole song, except for one verse, with no guitar at all. And while there is a decent amount of movement off the orange note, the basic idea stays the same each time. And sometimes, I can handle crappy guitar if it benefits the song, like in New Slang, but here, the "funkiness" of the guitar just makes the song unpleasant to listen to. While it's sure to be a hit at parties, avoid the guitar part.
