SONG LIST FOR ROCK BAND VIDEO GAME IS HEADBANGER FRIENDLY

50

Rock BandThe song list to the upcoming video game Rock Band — you know, like Guitar Hero except for all the instruments in a full rock band — has been released [The Syndicate Blog]. Jams by such headbanger friendly bands as Faith No More, KISS, Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Metallica and Nine Inch Nails are confirmed to be included in the game.

We still don’t really understand how the singer part is going to work, but we’re hoping reports are true that you get extra points for flashing the screen while performing Hole’s “Celebrity Skin.”
