Continuing from the highly successful Rock Band, the second edition comes it to up the ante. With over 60 songs from artists such as System of a Down, Linkin Park, Nirvana, Jimmy Eats World, and Lacuna Coil, the game is fully loaded for a new experience. There have also been some hardware changes as well, such as the padding on the drum set, so when it is hit, the sound isn't so loud.
Rock Band 2 packs in the most authentic music experience to be created- asking you to master either Guitar, Bass, Drums, or Vocals, or as a band in Band World Tour. With the biggest setlist to date, along with backwards compatibility on DLC, the music in this game show's "Who's who" in music and spans across every genre of Rock.
