Rush fails own song on Colbert Report

Ever since music games became popular, the musician trolls have frequented forums and comment threads everywhere. Typically, these trolls are known for comments like "Yeah, I'd rather play a real guitar, thanks." Imagine then, how strange it must be for real musicians to play fake versions of their own songs. Enter Rush performing the Rock Band version of "Tom Sawyer" backstage at the Colbert Report. To make a long story short, they fail at 36% completion. They don't seem to broken up about it though. Fabulous success can give you that kind of confidence, we suppose.

Rush talks Rock Band, humble beginnings


Rock legends, and Canadian Gods, Rush set a really good example for other rock icons -- they fully embrace gaming. While no one in the band is copping to late night sessions of Halo 3, they do discuss the process of getting their music into Rock Band, specifically tracking down a lost cut of "Working Man" to be released exclusively as downloadable content. Unfortunately, there is still no word if the rumor that the 1978 classic track The Trees is included in Rock Band 2 is true or not.

In an interview with Rock Band's Brett Milano, band members Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson talk about bringing their music to a new generation via gaming, the beginnings of Rush and name drop a few cities and spots in and around Ontario. Sure, Canada might be responsible for Celine Dion but Rush makes up for that travesty in spades.

Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rush tracks hit XBLM


It's Tuesday and you know what that means. Rock Band Weekly! Available now on the Xbox Live Markeplace are four new tracks to help you rock out in style. "Snow ((Hey Oh))" and "Tell Me Baby" from Red Hot Chili Peppers as well as "Working Man (Vault Edition)" and "Closer to the Heart" from Rush dropped this morning for 160MS Points a piece ($2 in real money if your a currency snob) and are worth every penny. Unless RHCP and Rush aren't your thing that is. If free is more your style then may we recommend "Promised Land" from Vesuvius, which has been on the Marketplace for a little while but is still worth a look for the price. That price, if you missed it, is free. Happy rocking!
