It’s nine in the afternoon and my eyes are as big as the moon…

Why so big you ask? Because ROCK BAND 2 is OUT!!!!!

Released for the Xbox 360 yesterday, the sequel boasts over 80 new songs. Don’t forget the downloadable content that will no doubt be coming soon. You can get the package with all new versions of the guitar, bass guitar, microphone, and drum set –or, your existing set from Rock Band will work just fine! The new drumkit boasts quieter pads and “velocity-sensitive” electronics. Also coming this fall will be a super-duper high-end drumkit that will not only include cymbal pads and work with Rock Band 2, but rumors have it that users can plug a real electronic drum ‘brain’ (computer) into the drumkit and have it work like a real electronic drumkit. Perfect for all you Phil Collins impersonators out there. Without further ado, here’s the basic song list. I’m eyeing “Chop Suey” by System of a Down and “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters. Although “Battery” by Metallica and “Come Out and Play” by The Offspring should be a lot of fun too….

  12. @Fred: Dude, Judas Priest is the hardest song in the game. Took me two tries to beat it on Hard. My left leg almost fell off halfway through.

  13. dude, third grade = no youtube.
    and what’s that supposed to mean?

  14. It’s not supposed to mean anything. I was just looking for more ammo for our our video section.

    What can top Kathleen + Kids in America + shenanigans?

    Well, maybe Matt singing “I’m Just A Girl” by No Doubt.
