A look at Green Day’s “Rock Band” video game

Hollywoodnews.com: Green Day is becoming a punk rock brand.

On the heels of their Broadway show and Tony performance on June 13, the Grammy-winning multiplatinum trio are releasing their own “Rock Band” videogame – similar to the Beatles edition last September.

“I just like being diverse and trying new things as far as Green Day is concerned,” front man Billie Joe Armstrong tells Pollstar.com.

“It’s like a glorified karaoke machine,” Armstrong said. “Or ‘Mortal Kombat’ with guitars.”

In the game, players perform in three different venues: a punk rock club, the Fox Theater in their hometown in Oakland, California; and the arena of their first concert.

“The Milton Keynes (stadium) show was quite momentous for us. It actually was the concert that was filmed for ‘Bullet in a Bible,’” Dirnt said, referring to the live DVD that was shot in 2005 on the band’s “American Idiot” tour.

As players excel, they unlock rare collectible images and videos of the band.

“You see old footage of us from the Bookmobile, and weird old performances and stuff no one’s looked at in almost twenty years,” Armstrong adds.

Overall, the trio loved how they look in the videogame, however, like Paul McCartney with “Beatles Rock Band” – Armstrong stinks at playing.

“Oh man, we’re hot on computers,” said drummer Tre Cool, while Dirnt joked: “I don’t know if they got enough pimples on me.”
