The rhythm action genres of games have become quite popular as of late. Games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band have shown that people do indeed like to feel like rock stars, even if it's only in front of their friends. It shouldn't come as much of a surprise to see new titles come onto the market to try to capitalize on this trend.
Battle of the Bands is one such title throwing its hat into the ring. What Battle of the Bands does differently is it does not use any special peripheral; it relies on the Wii remote's motion sensing technology instead. There's also the whole element of throwing completely different musical styles against each other.
