Rock Band Reaches Most Unholy Landmark

image

The release of Jane's Addiction's Nothing's Shocking album on Rock Band commemorated a dark and grim milestone for the game: it now officially has 666 songs.

Rock Band's catalog has now officially entered the dark and fiery realm of the Southern Lord: as of now, it has a grand total of 666 songs. "That's a hell of a lot of songs," Alex Rigopulos of Harmonix said. "We owe much of the success of the Rock Band franchise to the Dark Lord. We couldn't have done it without you, buddy!"

Satan himself had something to say about this milestone. "This is a great day for music fans and gamers alike," said Lucifer, credited in the press release as "Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Hell." He went on to praise Rock Band for including "some of the darkest and most brutal bands of all time, including Megadeth, Judas Priest, Testament and, of course, my personal favorite, The Naked Brothers Band."

Ironically, the album that pushed the catalog into its present unholy total wasn't a metal one at all. Jane's Addiction's Nothing's Shocking is far from uh, something by Jewel, but it's definitely not the kind of music to wear black robes and bite bats' heads off to. I mean, "Jane Says." Come on.

In any case, Harmonix and MTV are reveling in the evil spectacle of this triumph. "This was completely coincidental, and totally f***ing awesome," they declared. I'm pretty sure they were planning this all along, but I'll throw up the horns to that.

bah! Now im listening to that damn song :D

I just posted to thank you for putting up that awesome Gustav Dore illustration. It rules!

Now I must take my leave before I start bitching about the Dante video game.

SAIL HATAN!

Can you get The Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden? coz that would be fitting.

i hate rock band, don't know why, i'm good at it, i just don't like it how the songs on it become really popular, and when you hear it someone says, THIS IS FROM ROCK BAND!

On Rock Band yes, but only as a cover sadly.

Awesome, I'm all for throwing hail at Stan, or whatever it's called. Here's hoping the moral guardians don't throw a hissy fit over this one...

We are in the same boat, brother. I'm a fan of Rock Band, personally, but I can't stand hearing 'oh, that's from rock band' or 'I played that on guitar hero, it's so easy.' I might punch out the next 9 year-old who tries to convince me that they're going to be a rock star, cuz they 5 starred Welcome Home on Medium.

Give it 5 years and I reckon you will be able to do another story about Rock Bands 1 millionth song.
Or if that isnt newsworthy, how the Guitar Hero/ Rock Band cash cow has died of anorexia.
Milked too much, gettit?:)

Probably fake. The Devil's favourite song is Yellow Submarine, but he's too embarassed to say it.

Hail Satan! And yes, he does appreciate the Yellow Submarine.

Hah.

That's really all I have to say to this. So are they stopping at 666 or what?

Damn, they missed out on a perfect opportunity to add Black Sabbath for the 666th song! No creativity there, minus points for you rock band.

they should put some more muse on rockband

Yeah, I know, really. Then again they said it was "accidental."

Isn't that sort of a good thing too, though? I mean, it's that whole "introducing people to new music" idea.

And this was totally planned by them.

Well, the actual number of the beast is 616, so no need to worry.

Im with you guys too.

Of all the 666 songs Rock Band boasts, there's only about 15-20 that I will enjoy playing.

Keane Ng:

Keane, on the other hand, are quite simply the greatest band in the history of time. :P

Also, sarcasm. :)

I'm guessing your username doesn't have anything to do with said band, but just though I'd add that anyway.

Thank you satan, for giving us Rockband.

You have now made the list of people I don't want to kill.

good for rockband

muse is ok

A terrible cover might I add.

yeah i kinda agree with you there too

muse was a big pile of meh, although they have a funny video

tho i do think it's kinda cool a Jane's song was number 666 on the song list, i guess it totally NiN/JA'd the guys at harmonix

Pfft my Itunes has more songs.

*sulks in a corner*

That's it Keane, you're on my "On Watch" list. Just below Chocolate Pancakes.

Actually, the number of the beast is 616. You guys should really listen to Stephen Fry more.
