Rock Band reaches “metal milestone” with 666 tracks
Harmonix, MTV Games, and Lucifer – Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of Hell – announced today that Rock Band has hit a “metal milestone” in the way of 666 songs.
Says it was completely coincidental, and totally f***ing awesome.
The milestone was reached thanks to the release of Jane’s Addiction’s “Nothing’s Shocking”.
“That’s a hell of a lot of songs,” stated Alex Rigopulos, president and co-Founder, Harmonix. “We owe much of the success of the Rock Band franchise to the Dark Lord. We couldn’t have done it without you, buddy!”
“This is a great day for music fans and gamers alike,” said Lucifer. “Since its inception, Rock Band has included some of the darkest and most brutal bands of all time, including Megadeth, Judas Priest, Testament and, of course, my personal favorite, The Naked Brothers Band.
“Now if they’d just get some Iron Maiden masters, I swear I’d never leave the Pit of Everlasting Torment.”
Can’t take credit for any of the above. It was all in the press release and just too funny to change.
