    Green Day will share the distinction of being the only other band with a dedicated "Rock Band" game with The Beatles. The Green Day version in scheduled for release next Tuesday.

    According to Billboard, vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong said, "It's like a glorified karaoke machine. Or 'Mortal Kombat' with guitars." Well, BJA, a lot of kids and fans dig glorified karaoke, so let them have their fun while you collect the publishing royalties.

    Players of the game can access the band's media vault, where they can unlock rare collectible images and over 40 minutes of unreleased video. These include performances, outtakes, interviews and even a tour of their vehicle. "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 said.

    Will you purchase/play the Green Day version of "Rock Band?"
