Become a Rock Band rockstar -- like, right now photo



So yeah, obviously we're all excited about Rock Band, duh. Are you really excited? Wanna get your hands on it now, before anyone else -- and be on national television?

The tender dreams of hilariously ironic rock superstardom that you lovingly cultivated in your living room while you became better than anyone else you know at Guitar Hero can actually be a reality. That is, if you're made of awesome at rhythm games.

Interested? Hit the jump for a special message from VH1. 

Attention, masters of guitar-playing video games! Can you push buttons rhythmically while rocking out? Can you shake your ass while keeping the beat? Are you totally stoked to get your hands on Rock Band before anyone else does?

VH1 is casting a four-person Rock Band rock band who just happens to be the GREATEST ROCK BAND OF ALL TIME. They may play Rock Band instruments, but they’re the biggest band in the entire world. They’re “Rock Band Band” and they’re bigger than Led Zeppelin, more popular than the Stones, and harder rocking than Sabbath. We need a guitarist, a bass player, a drummer and a singer who can wail. We’re making a five-act mockumentary. If you get the part, you’ll be on VH1, VH1 Classic, and all over the internets. It’s a sweet gig, and you’ll be paid.

We’re looking for people who are incredibly proficient at rock&roll-based video games. But we’re also looking for people with performance chops – improv experience or other comedic skills are a plus. Potential rock stars must be available for several days of shooting in New York City towards the end of September. Actors may also be required to perform two live “gigs” in November.

Ideally, we are looking for actors/gamers/improv artists to fill the following roles:

  • A) Guitarist: 15-17 guy (or looks it), nerdy, incendiary guitar player. Needs to excel at in-game guitar playing
  • B) Bassist: 25-35 chick, mousy with a sexy side, Needs to excel at in-game bass playing (similar to guitar playing), comfortable with being sensual
  • C) Drummer: 35-45 dude, overweight and schlubby, jovial. Drum experience a plus; actual drummers will be able to learn how to play “Rock Band” drums.
  • D) Singer: 30-40 – absolutely gorgeous guy. Needs to be able to ACTUALLY SING WELL (and sing a variety of rock songs and styles)
  • E) Miscellaneous: Anyone who has amazing music-based videogame skills AND performance/improv or singing chops.

We are open to ANYONE who has music-based videogame skills AND performance (or singing) chops. Please send a photo of yourself (snapshots okay) and a link to any supporting video evidence of your awesomeness (youtube, myspace, etc) and your contact information, along with a brief paragraph explaining why you’d like to try out for “Rock Band Band” to rockbandvideo@yahoo.com asap (by Sunday, September 9th at the very latest).

Please specify which role you’re like to be considered for, or if you don’t fit into a pre-determined category (that’s okay!)

 
Srsly guys, go for it!

Limited run, 20th anniversary PS4 is a PS1 throwback

Just for a second I thought this was colored like the silver PS2 I always thought was kind of sucky (or the recent Dragon Quest PS4), and then I saw those PlayStation Japan live stream pictures (via Kotaku) with that ma...more

Splatoon might just be Nintendo's most promising new game

When Nintendo announced its wacky four-on-four shooter Splatoon at E3, I thought it looked cool -- spraying ink on the battlefield and then swimming around in said ink is cool -- but I didn't freak out like some people. Havi...more

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
