Guitar Hero and Rock Band have resurrected some of the greatest bands of all-time. What about today’s bands? Some old school music fans think they are selling out by putting their music into a video game so kids can pretend to play musical instruments. However, both games have created new, younger audiences, made up of kids who have never heard of Metallica, AC/DC, Aerosmith and other blasts from the past that still have strong cult followings.
For a band whose music has been around for more than five decades, The Beatles: Rock Band is not so much a resurrection as another way to celebrate the greatest rock band of all-time. MTV Games and Harmonix have teamed up to bring The Beatles: Rock Band to fans across the globe. The Fab Four have now made their way onto one of the biggest stages of the 21st Century.
Follow the Lads from Liverpool as they make rock history, create landmark records, perform in legendary shows and take the world by storm. You not only get to see it, you become part of the experience.
STACK’s Favorite Features: Gamers can choose from more than 45 Beatles songs, from all eras, then step into the legends’ shoes to play the instruments and sing, including up to three person vocal harmonies. Switch to expert level to see who is the best rocker.
