The complete lack of dialogue is what really makes this one, IMO.

I'm just waiting for PA to actually update their front page so I can see what triggered this....though I suspect I already know.

There's a DJ on one of the radio stations here that always plays the shotgun soundbite over a Nirvana song when it comes up in his rotation. I always listen despite the horrid overplaying of Nirvana songs that occurs here in Jacksonville. :)

Don't find it that funny. It's the obvious joke.

It is a funny joke but it's an obvious joke. After the release of GH: Aerosmith I must have had 2 or 3 conversations about future games they could make all of which featured someone a joke along those lines(Guitar Hero: Lynryd Skynyrd coming bundled with a bugged version of Pilot Wings and so on)

Your Lynyrd Skynyrd joke, not so much, no offense.

I think that occurs everywhere.

And these stations usually refer to themselves as "modern rock."

None taken. I don't even think it was mine. Just, meh. That's probably every frat guy's response to "I wonder if they'll ever have a Rock Band: Nirvana".

I was about to say that as well. Nirvana, Green Day, and Sublime are ridiculously overplayed around here.

A local classic rock station where I live plays Nirvana constantly. While I like some of their material, I'm not willing to call them classic rock.

I heard Soundgarden on one of the classic stations after Freebird a couple months ago and suddenly felt very old.

Yes, Black Hole Sun seems to be classic rock. And I as well feel terribly old when I experience this.

It also sucks to hear kids talk about their parents going to Soundgarden and/or Nirvana shows like it was Woodstock or something. I do get tired of the Stairway To Freebird combo on the radio.

There just needs to be a 90s rock station so I can avoid these bands. It's not modern and it's not classic. They can keep all the grunge bands and the horrible shit it spawned (candlebox, collective soul, etc.) along with the aforementioned Sublime and Green Day.

I used to love Nirvana, but enough is enough.

Lego Rock Band isn't something I understood initially; I needed help to do so. I like Legos, and I like Rock, and certainly I have no quarrel with bands - even so, I could not perceive their nexus.

I can readily deactivate my own capacity to offend, but the apparatus that determines what other people are offended by has never worked properly. My normal mode of operation is so coarse and vile that it constitutes a kind of psychic vampirism. I picked up a copy of Guitar Hero II as a Christmas present for a family I know, before the curve of the greater culture had swung toward the product, confident that I was exposing this clan to the very leading edge. Playing it myself at home, I began to wonder if The Donnas' "Take It Off" was the kind of thing they wanted their incredible daughter exposed to - exposure being virtually assured, had the song's dark prescription been allowed to take root.

No, as it turns out.

I think Gabriel essentially nailed it in our conversation yesterday, while discussing the strip: this product is not "for" us, the generalized us which most likely reads (or writes, for that matter) Penny Arcade. The press release is very clear on this point, because it incorporates the word "tween." It's the Kidz Bop version of Rock Band, and I don't want to give them ideas necessarily, but a Kidz Bop version of Rock Band would probably do really well. Even the gelded pop metal that finds its way onto your average Guitar Hero or Rock Band platter projects content many parents would find unsuitable. Guitar Praise is oriented to capture this contingent, but there's a tremendous amount of room for a comparatively "mild" musical gaming product software thing.

Lego Rock Band is a title for the young men and women who will inherit our pastime. Eventually, we'll come to understand that the universe is wide enough to contain ideas which do not pertain to us.

What hasn't been announced, but almost certainly will be, is the peripheral. I expect it to be slightly smaller than the current models, and be designed as though from Lego bricks. If it's got the pips on there, customizing your guitar with stickers will become a vulgar backwater practice, on par with snake handling.

That's what I thought, but it's still pretty funny.

hmm...yeah...I was thinking that too.

Though I was also thinking they were mocking the listing for The Beatles: Rock Band where is lists "and additional special content" in the Limited Edition Bundle
