The Beatle Bronies – Did You Know I’ve Got a Secret | Classic Rock

Time for more ponifications of classic Beatles songs courtesy of The Beatle Bronies! Their tribute to Do You Want to Know a Secret doubles as a tribute to S05E19 The One Where Pinkie Pie Knows, and despite being short, the Classic Rock treat is as lovely as it can get, with qdBrony, Wootmaster, and P1K all doing a magnificent job with much passion and skill.

The Beatle Bronies – Magical Mystery Cure | Classic Rock

After a three-year hiatus, The Beatle Bronies are finally back, this time with new drummer Wootmaster! This time, they bring a great new parody (one that lends itself way too easily to the original) named the controversial but beloved season 3 finale of the same name. The authenticity to the Beatles’ sound is on-point here and it should be enough to please any longtime Beatle Bronies fan!

The Ponytones – Horse of the Rising Sun (The Animals ponified) | Rock

The next Ponytones ponification is here! Keeping with the 60s theme, “Horse of the Rising Sun” parodies (specifically) the famous Animals cover of Bob Dylan’s original, “House of the Rising Sun.” The lyrics by iRhymeTheSongs are about Celestia, as you may have guessed from the title, and are handled very well. With some immaculate drumming and fiery vocals from Wootmaster, crisp guitar and bass tones from The Sound Guy, and some very sharp organ playing by Riccardo C, this Celestia-focused parody is quite well-produced and should be a treat for anyone, even those who haven’t heard the original.

Ponysphere & Secret Metal – Apples & Moonshine | Classic Rock

Those who expected Hard Rock or Heavy Metal in this new release from the crazy duo will be surprised! Going for a full Classic Rock twist, “Moonshinesphere” Ponysphere and Secret “Drunk” Metal decided to depict another everyday scene at Sweet Apple Acres in delightful musical ways. May it be apple liquor/schnaps or moonshine, I’m sure the Apple family put some of these sweet apples to extra good use, and nothing beats a good drink at the end of a day’s hard work! Take an invigorating drink along Applejack, Big Mac, Moonshinesphere and Drunken Metal, and reminisce about the gold times of old for rock music as you taste the incredible solos and riffs of this mighty tune. To savor without moderation! No, I wasn’t talking about the moonshine… or was I? hic

Ponysphere & Secret Metal – She’s all mine | Hard Rock

Warning: Some swearing and implied violence in this track!

Taking influence from early, violent fanfics, She’s All Mine is a great piece of hard rock fan music. Achieving a very classic rock sound via the late 70s and early 80s, Ponysphere provides the instrumentation that drives the track in combination with Secret Metal’s vocals that bring it home. Add in a solid percussive beat and some old-school guitar solos and you’ve got well executed, rare, hard rock gem!

The Ponytones – Poison Joke | Classic Rock

The highly-awaited new release of our beloved pony band The Ponytones is finally here! This time it’s a ponification of Jimi Hendrix, and the Classic Rock vibes are as strong as ever. While Zecora’s warning voice from S01E09 Bridle Gossip resonates throughout the song, lovely and clever pony lyrics sung by our own zebra Wootmaster are paying much tribute to the episode. At the same time, Jame’s incredible guitar play is paying much tribute to Hendrix and the crazy solos he’s known for! Top-notch bass by Sky and drums by Wootmaster are completing the frame for a stunning result that will forever remain gold. Check out The Ponytones’ official Discord server for behind-the-scenes and a wonderful place full of passionate people!

Soren Ember – Jackie B. Goode (Johnny B. Goode Parody) (feat. Protocat) | Rock N’ Roll

Ponifications are always so awesome to get, and we can always count on Soren Ember to display his great Classic Rock taste, this time bringing a ponification of the ever-so-classic Johnny B. Goode. Inviting Protocat on the piano once again, Soren delivers a mighty cover with lovely Applejack-themed lyrics, and I like to imagine this being performed in one of the barns of Sweet Apple Acres, transformed into a modest concert hall for the occasion!

Also find below an additional review by fellow writer Mordecai Mapper!

Start of Mordecai Mapper’s writeup
Soren Ember and Protocat return to amaze me with this rocking track! Parodying and making tribute to the great legend and innovator Chuck Berry (rest in peace), Soren and Protocat make a really dancing and awesome tribute. The track that talks about Applejack and Apple Acres, it’s really amazing, with a nice vocal performance and a great instrument performance by Soren and a great organ performance done by Protocat! Protocat and Soren knows dat Boogie Woogie! The lyrics re-invention to the pony theme was pretty well made, and then that guitar solos/riffs and the vocals are the thing that really overthrows everything on the song! Good job, both of you! Keep rocking the free world and keep making awesome tributes to great persons!

Elias Frost – In the Rain | Rock / Metal

A delightful treat, Elias Frost’s own response to Punk Rarity’s determination and beauty of the inside in S07E19 It Isn’t the Mane Thing About You is a Gothic-inspired rock piece with blissful riffs and fitting synths reflecting Rarity’s strength and passion as she shines from the inside out. The guitar solos are top-notch and overall In the Rain is quite the choon to jam and headbang to, giving homage to Rarity! Definitely a piece that she would listen to, to remind her of her fabulous self!
