I'm sure a lot of you enjoy, as I do, Vinny & Drew's amazing collection of royalty-free songs that we get to listen sometimes on the livestreams. Searching though AudioNetwork (which's very likely the website they acquired most of their catalog) we have found these:

With your help we can find even more! You can use Shazam to help identifying the songs or search through AudioNetwork using keywords, tempo, duration, etc.

Post your findings on this thread and I'll link them here for everyone to see (and credit you accordingly, of course)!

Thread has been restored! Thanks to @rorie and @mrpibb. Also, thanks to @bonecollecta for getting the cached version of the thread in case it couldn't be restored. We're back in business!

Here are some tips if you wanna help expanding this list:

@mirado said:

@musou: The ones that come from AudioNetwork are the easiest to find; a combination of understanding the keywords a song might be tagged with and the usage of music identifier apps like Shazam usually suss those out fast. Once I realized Shazam could pick up on these royalty free songs, I was posting them in-chat before the song was even over. I usually run everything through twice to make sure I don't get a false positive, but it's getting to the point that I recognize the names of the artists when they show up, and a quick search on AudioNetwork pulls it up for a comparison to the stream.

It isn't foolproof (no luck finding that HTBAB Part 7 song that people want, for instance), but we'll probably catch a ton more from here on out, as even if I'm not around, it only takes one duder with Shazam to grab like 70% of their music.

#8 Edited by Pr1mus (4107 posts) -

@eujin: Yes! That's the one. Thanks!

@monkey523: Triplestep is what i was looking for. The one they've been playing lately during the "please stand by" screen before livestreams.

#9 Posted by Kinapuff (248 posts) -

That party hard song is.. far too catchy.

#10 Edited by Silver-Streak (1563 posts) -

@pr1mus: Glad I could help. I only found out because I messaged Drew about it a while back. I've posted about it before, but I don't enjoy music, and when something has earwig properties and gets stuck in my head (music theory about using certain beats to make people get it stuck in their head even if they don't like the song) it drives me nuts so I have to listen to it on repeat two or three times to get it done with.

To head off the questions that people usually bring up: Yes, I really do not listen to music. At most I have some nostalgic memories for Castlevania music, and have heard one or two songs over the years that are ok, but I do not actively listen to music in any form as I don't really get enjoyment out of it.

#11 Posted by Forcen (2139 posts) -

@theht: YES, looked over and over in the bastion soundtrack for that one!

#12 Posted by Musou (344 posts) -

@Eujin@TheHT Thanks duders! Added the links you posted to OP.

#13 Posted by SirOptimusPrime (2038 posts) -

@forcen: Actually there is a string sample that at least has the same progression as around ~0:28 in Bynn the Breaker on the Bastion soundtrack.

Then it kind of diverges, but yeah thanks for bringing this site to light @Musou! There's some hot jams there.

#14 Posted by RazielCuts (3090 posts) -

I've always thought the 'Party Hard' one was Ke$ha or of that same ilk and I've guiltily liked it (I feel somewhat better it isn't her?). And thanks, the dubstep one needed.

it's still reminiscent of her style so... I don't get why it'd make you feel better necessarily, besides the fame factor

Also party hard just makes me think of Andrew W.K.

#16 Posted by MistaSparkle (2283 posts) -

Party Hard is my guilty pleasure song. I bumped that shit waiting for TNT so many times.

Also relevant but not royalty free, that slowed down version of Girlfriend that was on when they played Burnout is pretty great. This is an awesome thread, I hope we can find some more tunes!

Not sure what you're talking about, but back in the day they used at least one or two Midnight Brown tracks in the background of their videos.

Like the instrumental track to this song on their video reviews and I Love Mondays (I think those videos had this).

No, it's not Midnight Brown (and if it is, I can't find it on the albums). I'm talking about the song from this video:

Pimp My Bass is appropriately dumb for the purpose it was used for. I might as well come out and say I like Party Hard too. I wonder what @Demoskinos thinks about pop songs like it. He seems to enjoy a good pop song.
