Green Day Coming To Rock Band

During Kevin and Bean's Breakfast with Green Day this morning on KROQ 106.7 FM, the band confirmed that they'll be doing something involving Rock Band in the near-ish future.

When an audience member asked them when their songs would be appearing in Rock Band, lead singer Billy Joe had the following to say: "Uh yeah, we're doing a whole Green Day Rock Band...uh."

Gimme basket case

Wheres my...... Rockband: Hanson ? mmmmmmm bop

Cinotix3087d ago

Noooo. No Hansons, screw that, it's not even close to Metal.

saggyscrote3087d ago

Rockband: Rick Astley ???

anyone ? no ?

Foxgod3087d ago

hehehe, didnt they actually have a rick ashley game on the cdi ? :)

TheDude2dot03087d ago

Would anyone actually buy a Green Day game?

iNcRiMiNaTi3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

if they were to make one make it old songs. when i come around, basketcase, longview, welcome to paradise to name a few id like to see.

but im still not sure they would release an all green-day edition. as much as id love one, their songs are too simple and made up of power chords mostly. so it'll mostly be constant strumming of A D F G power chords

Do we really need this many rock bands? I get the beatles, they are the #1 band of all time, I can't see to many bands after the Beatles that could have an audiance that could move rockband kits. Maybe Pink Floydd, Led Zeplin or Rolling Stones, but Greenday? If they are smart they would do a Seattle rock band with Peal Jam, Nirvanna, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains and Foo Fighters and maybe a few Presidents of the United States "Kitty" anyone?

Green day is fine I guess...but Motorhead would have been SO much better. Plus, they've been here for like forever. Plus, Lemmy alone would make this game worth it.

I can see why they went with the Beatles first, as it's a pretty iconic band, and although Motorhead isn't as popular as it once was, they're still quite respected and loved, I say it's time to give them a game.

On a side note, Lemmy is in Brutal Legend from what I've seen. =D

Mindboggle3087d ago

I would get it but I can play all their songs on real only joking, I still enjoy Rock Band.

Anyone fancy Led Zepplin rock band ?? Im waiting for a decent metal game. With the likes of Killswitch Engage, Bullet for my Valentine, Trivum, Metallica, Staind, Slipknot etc etc

I am a resident of the Norcal Bay Area, and I gotta say, out of all the eastbay punk bands (AFI, Operation Ivy, Green Day), Green Day is the most shameless sellout.

They like to critisize society in their music, yet they have no integrity themselves. They sold out HARD. They're music is so watered down and over-produced, its sad that this is what kids are growing up listening today.

Its an even more sad statement on Rock Band though. Green Day were never good musicians. 1/2 of their songs use the same three chords.

dun dun......dun dun......dun dun......dun dun..dun dun..dun dun......

@ DaShredder

Green Day are artists? That's news to me. Their music has been in a steady decline since Insomniac was released.

I just find it funny that they try to be passionite about politics yet that same passion doesn't extend to their boring music. God, if I here that song "I walk a Lonely Road" again, I'm gonna rip my stereo out of my car and throw it off an overpass.

DA_SHREDDER3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

Where is my Rock Band Silver Chair and Rock Band Pantera?

@ Tony

Who did they sell out too? They are artist, not your friend.

II Necroplasm II3087d ago (Edited 3087d ago )

I want a Gwar version of Rock Band or GH. Rock Band Pantera would be great too!

Defectiv3_Detectiv33086d ago

I'm pretty sure it will never come to rock band, its already on Guitar Hero, and artists from these two series can't inner-mingle.

Wow, I think I just created a new word.

theEnemy3086d ago

to listen to me whine..

BRG90003086d ago

They were very specifically talking about DLC. This is pretty misleading.

This is HUGE. I love Greenday and am quite excited to hear about a Rock Band games based on them.

Icemael3087d ago

I don't particularly like Greenday(they aren't bad by any stretch of the imagination, but...), but I guess this is pretty cool.

CroTech223087d ago

Yea me neither, my bro loves it. Oh well, I'll just be singing.

wwm0nkey3087d ago

pass they are starting to sell out just like guitar hero

Ziriux3087d ago

Yea it makes million so why stop, that's Harmonix and Activisions moto i'm sure.

WengYong3087d ago

Music sells out to make money, and if games need to sell out then thats what they have to do unfortunately. Make money or make a minority happy ?? If you were in their situation and needed to feed your family you would probably do the same.

Ziriux3087d ago

Momies and daddies will be buying this.

mau643087d ago

this doesn't excite me much... bring on some metal

Ziriux3087d ago

I love Green Days music, it'll be nice to finally play along.

Icemael3087d ago

Yeah, metal would've been better IMO. Iron Maiden anyone?

Ziriux3087d ago

Oh dont you worry Icmeal it's coming.

benny o klaatt3087d ago

iron maiden is already available, not my cup of tea but it came out last week as dlc
