Popular music video game. You can buy up to four game controllers for this game including a bass, a drum set, a guitar and a microphone. The game is funnest when you have four players and like that you have the actual rock band feel. The game is similar to Guitar hero but the difference is you can have a drummer, bassist, and a singer.
My friends like playing Rockband instead of forming their own real rock band.

A game created by Harmonix, involving the simple concept of Guitar Hero, but throwing in a mic, a bass, and drums. It provides a sense of creating your own band, and playing music, without the years of experience on a real instrument! You can form a band via Xbox Live, to have your girl from Hawaii singing, a good friend in Amsterdam on drums and a buddy in Chicago on bass, or you can just have friends come over and enjoy a "virtual garage band" experience. It will be released on November 20th, 2007 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles. A PS2 release is scheduled for 2008. There is a bundle with all instruments at around $200, but the game itself is $60. It will provide backwards compatibility with a Guitar Hero guitar for those who don't want to spend $200. Also available are downloadable albums with all the songs, from the album, playable in the game. (The Who's "Who's Next" album, the first out of many albums that are going to be released), seperate songs and other DLC on the Xbox Live Marketplace, and PS3 Network, for a microtransaction of course.

Annoying the hell out of neighbors since 2007.
Does the guy next door playing Rock Band really think he can sing because it just sounds like someone is dying over there. And the drums... oh the drums... Can someone just shoot me in the face and end it already?

Actually Drum Hero, but with Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution added for free.
Harmonix CEO: So how's Drum Hero going?

Harmonix Employee: pretty good, I think this game will be an amazing successor to our Guitar Hero

Harmonix CEO: But who will play a game with just drums? Lets throw in a couple of our guitars, Karaoke Revolution, call it Rock Band, and have it ready for me by Christmas.

1. A group of people, most commonly three to five in number, who regularly congregate for the purpose of making music that will hopefully make them rich and famous and get them laid.

2. A video game for the Xbox 360 that allows a person to simulate the experience of being in a rock band. One can either sing or play guitar, bass, or drums. Can be played with everyone together in one room or separately online. Akin to what being in an actual rock band would be like if you only played covers and had more cheet on your shirt.
Guy: Hey baby, I'm in a rock band, let's do it. (Girl follows guy into cheap motel room.)

A game closely resembling Guitar Hero, released for a variety of systems, most famously Xbox and PS2, which uses controllers shaped like guitars, drums and a microphone.

The game is fun for everyone, but seems to be designed so that actual musicians suck at it. The only places where actual musicians prevail is the expert level on vocals and drums, which, unlike the bass and guitar parts, are quite realistic.

Sometimes, groups of morons will actually come to believe they really can play guitar when they manage "Through Fire and Flames" on expert difficulty. However, this is a rare instance for two reasons. One is that that task is damn near impossible. Two is that most people with an IQ sufficient to play the game are too smart to have that happen to them.

Fortunately, there is a happy medium in both musicians and gamers who can just enjoy it instead of turning it into a retarded debate.
Rock Band is seriously awesome!
