Rock Band: The Original Band In A Box

On April 2nd, the ending of an era took place as the music video game, Rock Band, released its final downloadable track after 281 consecutive weeks of purchasable online content. Rather fittingly, the Rock Band creators Harmonix decided that the final ever song to be released for the game would be Don McLean's classic farewell tribute, “American Pie,” marking a definitive goodbye to five years of computer generated strumming, banging, and wailing. Of course Rock Band isn't dead as you can still find plenty of people buying the games and purchasing the peripheral ‘instruments,’ but Harmonix decision to leave Rock Band behind does mark the end of a once flourishing franchise.

So, that's how Rock Band ends (for now at least…Hamonix are rumoured to be working on something for the next breed of consoles), but how did it all start? Well to see that,a trip down memory lane is needed… (PS3, Rock Band, Wii, Xbox 360)
