Rock Band: Beatles AND Guitar Hero: Metallica Information



The Beatles have finally caved in, and licensed their music for video game use. Their "Rock Band" edition will be released on 9-9-09. Apparently, this will be an "unprecedented, experiential progression through and celebration of the music and artistry of the Beatles." That quote makes it sound pretty good! But seriously, I have a hunch that a lot of people would want to play along with the Beatles' stuff.

There's a ridiculously lame website for the game HERE, but you can input your e-mail address to receive future information. Click on for info about Guitar Hero's Metallica edition."Guitar Hero: Metallica" will be released on March 29th, and should rival the Beatles game in quality due to the raging guitar solos it will provide. The game will be available on the Wii, PS2, and 360. Tons of Metallica songs are featured, with a bunch of non-Metallica songs hand-picked by the bandmates themselves. Check out the songlist below.
