Now go rock on! Or if you're more like me, spin that record, baby!

  • Rock and Roll will never die, but seriously, there are far too many music games saturating the market.

  • DJ Hero is the best music game ever. Period.

  • iam in a god dam rock band,its not dead!

  • Put in your opinion and perhaps you'll shape the future of the genre. Quit flaming plz

  • i feel that they will get old in the next 5 years or so but they're still lots of fun today.

  • What? A post about music games and no comments from Kittenkilla? I'm a little disappointed.

  • Whoever said Rock and Roll is dead needs to meet the Prince of Darkness - "You Can't Kill Rock and Roll"

  • The music genre is dead, except for DJ Hero. The only reason developers make music games is for money. Just look at Guitar Hero.

  • I need the $50.00!

  • yay!

  • DJ Hero might be worth it but not with it's current price tag

  • Staff

    More cow bell!

  • Music will never die, Just the music industry will.

  • I've never been into Guitar Hero or Rock Band. Those are great games and people love them. They aren't going anywhere. I would like to see more interesting mixes of music and games like Brutal Legend. Or Orchestra Hero!

  • Done!  That was fun to take.

    "I got a fever, and the only prescription...  Is more cowbell!!!"

  • Ok. I want to say before hand that I have played many music games and I do enjoy them.  That said, I hate music games!  Rock Band puts 4 friends together and they play some of the most popular tunes out there.  It costs hundreds of dollars and requires practice to play on expert level.  Doesn't this sound familiar to anyone.  I was a drummer and am now currently a singer for a REAL LIFE BAND, oh my!  Yes people play real instruments and we write our own music!  It costs hundreds of dollars and takes a lot of practice to become and expert (which by no means are we).  But we can do something real.  Something creative. Something cultural relevent!  Music games are no more than press the same 5 buttons over and over.  It takes no actual brain power and doesn't benefit anyone in any real way.  Who gets impressed when you can air guitar a song from Guitar Hero?  As i said before music games are fun, but, come on, pick up a real guitar or mic or drum set.  Trust me it's more fun and much more rewarding at the end.  And who knows, you may have a real talent for it.

  • Rock and roll is totally not dead.... Music games however need to spice it up a little bit. DJ Hero did a great job even though I am not a big fan of rap or hip-hop, to each his own. A little innovation goes a long way.

  • rock and roll is noise pollution

  • that one sucked but a new game would be nice
