    Tenacious D is/would be actually pretty fun to play. Don't even begin to imagine that any FotC song would be nearly as fun as say, Tribute.

    or wonderboy or anything actually

    Thanks. Is this available in-store or online only? It suggests online but it isn't explicit about it. Anybody else know of any deals for MS points?

    Both. The only other deal would be live cashback which isn't that great considering eBay sellers tend to charge more than retail for them. You could always stake out auctions, but they have to be BIN items to take advantage of it.
    Thanks Shady. I'll go to a local TRU and check it out.

    And Smug Duckling: Have you tried tightening your diaphragm to reach higher notes whilst singing? It usually helps me.

    There is a seller with 4000 point cards for $42 buy it now. Used the MS 25% cashback to get 10.50 off so you get 4000 points for around $33. Not too bad.

    I don't know, something about the chord changes in Mountain Song just screw with my brain. I can't figure it out, it's like I have some block on it.

    I figured it'd be something like that. I have a bigger problem with Battery just because of the strum rhythm. But then I'm talking about Expert. Sounds like Mountain Song is just hitting you where you're weakest.

    More Killers tracks yesssssssssss; I was so sad when I saw the GTWT announcement first. So glad they picked Smile Like You Mean It for RB. The Wii version can't come soon enough. :(

    Here's what pisses me off about the Wii version: the game (just disk) comes out December 16, as do the standalone drums and guitar. Yet, the Special Edition Bundle doesn't ship until December 30. Why do they forsake me so?

    I could just pick up the RB1 Special Edition but I really want the new instruments. :(

    Anything those guys do would be hilarious. I'd prefer the song Bret sung to his girlfriend, I think it might hard to actually get through the song though, too busy in hysterics.

    There's no confirmed date for the disc or the bundle, though I'd bet on December 16th for both. At least I'm hoping for that, since I already put down $100 for it at Gamestop.

    Good news, though: GH3 guitars work in the AC/DC pack that came out today. So if you can't wait another month for RB2, you can go pick that up.

    Don't do it. In fact, I suggest you get GHWT for the Wii and buy Rock Band 2 as disc only.

    (Note: I love the WT genericaster and the drum kit, and I have the 4 wii remotes to fill them all out. So I suppose YMMV contents may have settled, etc)

    An intriguing idea. I haven't tried any of the GHWT equipment. I've got plenty of Wiimotes, so that's not a concern. I need to find somewhere to try it out.

    Also, today I've been playing guitar since I haven't touched the darn thing in months. I figured I would cramp again, but holy shit my frettin' hand is oh good lord

    Rock Band has gone woefully unplayed for the past week or so in my house. :( I think Moss is going to come over and demand I give back my fanboy card soon. The precious little time I have to play has been divided between a ton of newer games, but I know RB will always be waiting for me when I return, like a patient lover.

    Anyway to anybody who's interested in this kind of thing, the Scorehero leagues are starting up again. Signups opened up this weekend and go until the end of the week I think:

    http://www.scorehero.com/leagues (need to be logged in).

    There's leagues for everything you can think of, all instruments from Medium to Expert, on-disc and DLC... if you like to compete I'm sure you can find something that suits you :0) I'm going to do the one-man band
