If you haven't seen it, the video of Ryan revealing "Found Me the Bomb" by Buckner & Garcia was posted on the site today: http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/buckner-and-garcia-s-found-me-the-bomb-revealed/2300-7680/

This all came about when Ryan made an off-the-cuff remark on the Bombcast that he "wanted Buckner & Garcia to write a song about our stupid web site." This is right after I had set up Jerry and Gary appearing on the Pac-Man Scrub League, and I knew that this was a horrible/brilliant idea. I pitched it to the duo, helped collect and write all the dumb references for the song, and this blues jam was the result.

To see again how genuinely happy Ryan was to hear the song makes me both so happy I could play a part in it and so devastated that he is gone.

I just wanted to post this to share with you guys the email Ryan sent immediately after this video was shot. The tone of it is so Ryan: http://i.imgur.com/pJ4iDV8.jpg

Goodbye, my friend. Thank you for everything.

Wow just noticed that the musicians look like the Bombcrew. AWESOME!

Yeah, I kept the characters I created for the "Found Me the Bomb" video to use in this. And I'm still holding onto them just in case...

Also, I would say the guitar (the one on the left, the bass is on the far right) is way more difficult. That track is moving pretty fast.

@Redbullet685 Didn't HamsterAlliance do that song? I'm currently working with WaffleStomp, who does the official songs that appear on the site (like all the songs tha appear on the Bombcast). However, if someone wants to get HamsterAlliance to contact me, I'd be happy to include him. I've heard they're quite good with the wobble bass...
I'm just going to leave this here.

  After the success of "Found Me the Bomb" by Buckner & Garcia on the Rock Band Network, I had wanted to work on more projects with Giant Bomb. One of the great things about the site is its music, from the various iterations to the Bombcast theme to the E3 music playing before video features this week. If you aren't aware, these are all done by Giant Bomb user WaffleStomp, aka Phil Reno. 
 
After finally meeting Ryan at PAX East this year, I asked for his blessing to bring original Giant Bomb songs to the Rock Band Network. He told me to go talk to Phil, and now I'm glad to reveal that we're going through with it. 
 
The video is just a prototype made specifically for this reveal. We're not just releasing 30-second themes, because that would be pretty lame. Instead, we will be working with Phil to create medleys of these shorter themes, extended versions of some, and other fun and crazy experiments. All the songs will be re-recorded to ensure the best quality. It might take a little time, but it'll be worth it. Just be sure to follow my blog on here or my Twitter for updates and new videos as we make progress.
