Become a Rock Band rockstar -- like, right now

1:00 PM on 09.05.2007 // Leigh Alexander

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 [email protected] 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!

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

I've never done a blog before, so I may as well try one with a review of Stranger of Sword City....well, when I get entered into that contest of course

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

You think your art sucks? Here's the rule34 I made of Larx yesterday. Look at it and despair.

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Finally got my in game time down to under an hour in Super Metroid. I'm pretty happy about that.

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
