Rock Band Bags the Beatles

Posted by | October 30, 2008

Although the battle of the fake bands has been heating up for some time, Harmonix has taken things to an entirely new level by signing up the Beatles to their popular Rock Band series. The result will be a game pack that lets you pay good money to pretend to play the timeless Beatles classics that you’ve already paid good money for on tape, then CD, then a second CD after the dog chewed up the first.

“It gives me great pleasure to be part of the Beatles/Rock Band partnership,” said former Beatle Ringo Starr, “Once again, the gig I lucked into over 30 years ago will keep my aging, careerless ass in money.”

The computer company, Apple, who gave their blessing for this use of the Beatle’s music in the project could not be reached for a quote as they were too busy shoveling fistfuls of raw cash into a gaping corporate maw.
