It seems the last BronyCon has brought out quite a few “we’re not dead” songs lately, this one courtesy of pony pop punk staples Shad3z and Luck Rock, along with the pony pop punk originator Forest Rain! However, make no mistake, Shad3z is the star of the show here and he kills it. The title refers to the transition between season nine and Generation Five, featuring lyrics about what you’d expect with a slight twist (lyrics about never growing up). The song is definitely one you can bang your head to,
(Listen to Crusaders! Classic Here)
This cover wow. It’s everything you want to hear from a rock ballad. A punk rock ballad to be exact! About a rocking romance to be. Crusader’s original song’s message. His lyrics and most of all the emotion is still there. But there is something more that makes it this cover. Soo good. Forest Rain and Wubcake turn this a duet with a big flavor of punk rock and sweet riffs. The slight lyrical change make this love song for everypony to enjoy and embrace. This song will fill your heart with all kinds of feels and fun. Forest Rain and Wubcake have wonderful chemistry in their harmony, with smooth punk guitar. Yet with this dreamy melody to create this romantic vibe.
It’s refreshing to get an instrumental piece from Quicksilver, and no I’m not saying that because of that pool artwork picked by P@D as the cover art for it! The joy and lighthearted-ness of the moment sure does fit the music, with our beloved ska-punk musician doing wonders with those Surf Rock-like guitar melodies and the upbeat atmosphere all around! But of course the track still expresses loudly that heavy power of rock music with some energetic riffs! And if you know the musician, you can bet it has some lovely pony theme behind it! A tasty gem, from Ponies at Dawn Skyward!
An electric theme for the Wonderbolts coming at you at full speed, this new song by MelodyBrony sure does match the cover art, and provides such a rocking tribute to Equestria’s air force! A lovely and delightful Pop Punk fan song of both vocal and instrumental greatness!
One of our beloved bringers of pony Punk Rock in the community, Quicksilver did absolute wonders again with this new release, themed around Marble Pie and how she feels about Big Mac getting taken by Sugar Belle! An energetic pacing and rocking vocals are present to bring those tasty Punk Rock vibes to our greatest delight, and we can’t help craving for more!
You know what I really enjoy? When someone takes Daniel’s work, then makes it their own. EnergyTone’s cover of this song brings the light guitar in the song to the forefront. If punk rock is your jam, then you’ll love this! This to me has that 90’s punk rock feeling to it. His delivery of the lyrics matches the sound of his cover. So you will sing along just the same as it stays true to the original? Does it improve the song itself? That as always is your judgment. It’s a really fun take on a well known CMC song with a fitting rock sound to it. One that would have anyone dancing and swaying there head around!
I’m so happy that Chrissy is getting some more love all around in the community, and the pony music scene certainly is on it, with Forest Rain doing us the honors of an amazing Pop Punk treat about the Changeling Queen! Spontaneous fan songs echoing feelings for our beloved characters are just the best! Follow Forest along the rocking riffs, inspired lyrics and lovely vocals, and let’s spread our love and passion loud and wide!
If you haven’t downloaded Forest Rain’s new album Discovery, then get on it now! One of the amazing songs you’ll hear is Silverstream – this energetic and touching tribute to the most enthusiastic and optimistic of the Student Six. It’s easy to jump around to these tracks with the quick guitars and flowing drum beat that make the genre so much fun to listen to!
Another hit included is Big Blue, a tribute to the softer, often hidden side of Gallus. This track has softer, more melodic parts like the piano lead-in and outro. Of course, this song wouldn’t be complete without the faster, standard pop punk chorus!
2000’s Metalcore style nostalgia feels are coming with this great track produced by Blackend that it’s featured on the most recent album of Ponies At Dawn – Skyward!
The vocals are on perfection, the lyrics that are about Twilight Sparkle dealing with her inner demons. The breakdown of this song is brutal, I headbanged while listening to this. This surely is a treasure hidden on the entire Ponies At Dawn brand.
Download or buy Skyward on P@D bandcamp.
Come and get that tasty rock sound everypony! It will never get old, and MelodyBrony had such an awesome idea here with this tribute to Sweetie Bot, delving into all the deep themes associated with that fanmade character. What’s more, the awesome Luck Rock got invited to play the bass! I love to see such musical collabs in the community, it feels just like friends in the neighborhood going into each other’s garage to jam and write songs together! Keep it up guys, much love!
