More fun classic rock from Noisy Puppet

Even though buttercup formed in the early nineties, their sound is definitively mid-70s. This track brings back the feeling of cruising around town with the AM radio station blasting. Elements of Big Star, and the Byrds can be heard in the intricate guitar work and brilliant pop song form. The vocal hooks are a pleasure to sing, and the guitar licks flow like the butter in the band’s name. Watch the game-play preview trailer below and get the inspiration you’ve been looking for.

The video game download from the soundtrack to the book

TV shows based on comic books, breakfast cereals based on cartoons, movies based on video games, video games based on TV shows… crossing into a new medium has always helped us enjoy experiences we love in new ways. “Hey Satomi” is a song by a fictitious band, The Bungles, who come to life in the new book, “Rules To Rock By”, by Josh Farrar. Now, for the first time, you can play the parts of the characters in a book in Rock Band as you live out your own rock star fantasy. “Hey Satomi” is available on the official soundtrack to the book.

“Hey Satomi” will keep a drummer busy on the toms, while challenging you to put the kick pedal down in the right places. The guitar part is one of the coolest and toughest guitar parts you’ll find without needing a shredding solo in the middle. You can sing along with real-life teenager Justine Skyers on the catchy vocal lines, or you can play the part of the book’s star character and pick up the bass. However you tackle this song you and your band-mates will end up with smiles on your faces, just like the characters in the book.
