If it is not on the Wii version, I will be super ultra PISSED!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Wii version will not have the capability of downloading, but it will have some bonus songs, which are the downloadables on other systems.

It won't be, sorry, and it won't be in the bonus track pack disc they are releasing either. The track listing for both of those has been revealed.

You could always hope for Track Pack 2!

I am not a video-game player, but I think it's cool that Hammerhead is featured in the new Rock Band game; it means more fans!

And it's on Madden '09.

Dexter wasn't kidding that Rick Rubin was really pushing this record. Kudos to him.

The Rock Band site is quite awesome for Offspring fans right now, the moment you load it up, you hear Hammerhead bursting forth from your speakers. (Accompanied by a video of Rock Band's generic punk characters playing it, just to show what the the game looks like without the note charts, don't worry people who don't know about Rock Band, you make your own characters, you don't have to play as the generic punks)

http://www.rockband.com

There's one problem with this though, the song that follows this is an Avenged Sevenfold song >.< Why did The Offspring have to be released in the same week as them?

I didn't expect Hammerhead to be in Rock Band, but this is still awesome. I'm gonna have so much fun singing it. If I can convince my friend that has Rock Band to download the song.

Oh, hey, to the people who haven't bought Rock Band yet:

WAIT FOR ROCK BAND II!. It's coming out in November, and it will have Bad Religion's Sorrow in it.

A friend of mine (who is probably one of the best jazz drummers int he state, easily blows me out of the water, and I'm not half bad) had a party a few months ago. We were the only two drummers in the entire house and we were the only two that couldn't play drums on Rock Band. It was disgusting.

As awesome as this announcement is, I'll just stick to the real thing so i don't embarrass myself again. :o

And you heard this from where? An EGM leak about a rumor back in April?

Considering Harmonix/EA just sent out surveys to people about the viability of a sequel over the last two months (yours truly included), I don't think anyone should be expecting a sequel to Rock Band a mere year after its initial release. Funny that no major gaming site, or mag has any info or magazine has any official info on this "sequel".. and since Rock Band was such a smash hit you'd think if it was coming in a scant 5 months, magazines and web sites would be RIFE with information.

IMO, Harmonix and EA would be fools to release a sequel to RB. It's infinitely expandable as it is and releasing a sequel - unless they take great pains to ensure every single DLC track is compatible - will alienate people.

They can add character models, songs, character outfits, guitar/bass/drum models all through DLC and be a hell of a lot more profitable than trying to reinvent the game for a sequel. As the recent update which added the music store shows, they can even update the core menus and likely update a lot of the core game including note charts. There's no reason for a sequel, and certainly not in November.

If anything I'd expect this game to support expansions, not sequels.

I think that Rock Band 2 will be really Rock Band 2.0, available to download if you have Rock Band 1, and possibly released in stores too for people who haven't got Rock Band 1 yet.

I for one am so glad an Offspring song finally made Rock Band. I love the game. Since my little brother got it back in Christmas it's still the only game that all our friends play and have a good time. It's so much fun even if you aren't good at it. It's all about having a kick ass time.

Which makes you wonder why they didn't get a bigger budget for the video, or did make another... They should just use the rock am ring performance instead, edit it a bit and it's perfect.

Has any tv station even played the video? The chart show here skipped'm.

To the first part, I've wondered that myself.

To the second part, not that I'm aware of, and I don't blame them.

About an hour and a half till Xbox Live updates.

Can't wait. I'm hoping the guitar chart is good. Won't be able to try the drums till tomorrow though, too noisy.

Just finished playing it.

Surprisingly difficult, but not TOO difficult. Great fun and I hope enough people buy it to convince them to release a full album.

One of the hardest drum songs in the game, apparently.

I'll post the videos so you guys can see what it looks like on expert. Note, in most of these videos, the player has never seen what the song looks like before trying to play it.
