Behold… ROCK CAKES!!!



What’s better than cup cakes? ROCK BAND cup cakes! Or as popularized on Twitter, ROCKCAKES! As far as I know, these or the only such Rockcakes in existence. I had an urge for cup cakes this weekend, and with some spare time yesterday afternoon, ingredients from a local cake shop, and a steady hand, the Rockcakes came to be.  But the most important part, they taste AWESOME! Yellow cake cupcakes with black butter cream frosting and white frosting. They came out better than I thought they were going to. I give them five stars:

Five Stars

Also, it took a long time before I perfected the making of the Rockcakes. Here are some of the rejects…

Let’s Give Some Stuff Away…


No, not beer, but free stuff coming your way!  I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to make this an every week thing, but I want to start giving away Rock Band gear, accessories, and DLC credits on Fridays.  Here’s what I was thinking.  I’ll post a random Rock Band related question sometime after noon (Central time), and then open the comments to everyone to give their answer (one comment per person, please).  Sometime Sunday afternoon/night, I’ll pick a random name and send them an email letting them know they have won.  Not sure if I’ll get around to doing something this Friday, but come back next Friday for sure and I’ll have some FREE stuff to give away!

Official: Green Day coming ONLY to Rock Band


OK, now we can move this from rumor column to official column. After the not-so-secret got out, I think Harmonix decided to confirm some of the rumors.  Announced earlier today, the FIRST (as in more to come) of Green Day DLC will come out on July 7th as a three-pack from their latest album “21st Century Breakdown.”  According to the announcement from Harmonix, “Additional Green Day songs and projects will be announced at a later date.”  The songs are:

  • 21 Guns
  • Know Your Enemy
  • East Jesus Nowhere

Green Day in Rock Band (We’re Sure This Time)

Green Day

Unlike last time, we’re sure this time around.   How are we sure? Well, apparently it came straight from the horse’s mouth, with the horse being Green Day’s frontman Billie Joe. This morning, the boys from Green Day were on the KROQ morning show in LA. When asked when their music would make an appearance in Rock Band, Billie Joe’s response was “Uh yeah, we’re doing a whole Green Day Rock Band…uh.” Not yet sure if this going to be a separate game (a la The Beatles), or stand alone disc (a la AC/DC), or as a DLC track pack (a la Iron Maiden this week).  No official word from Harmonix… yet.
