I LUV THIS GAME! IT IS SO FUN! great fun for the whole family

Best music game ever next to Rock Band 2? Yes.

Really the only language problem is in Mississippi Queen from Mountain (see above in Language section), Run to the Hills by Iron Maiden ("R**ing the women and killing the men") and Nirvana's In Bloom ("Nature is a wh*re") All of these actually are barely heard if you are concentrating on the song (which is almost everytime you play the song). So other from that, this is a great game. Perfect for parties, or just random get-togethers. There is Downloadable Content for those on the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 (internet required). Songs are 160 pts. on Xbox, but for PS3 I don't know. Downloadable songs can have lyrics more noticable (still censored) than on-disc songs. For example, a Megadeth album is available, Metallica pack, etc. All profanity is censored other from an occasional "d*mn" or other swears equivalent to that. So lyrics aren't a big deal if you don't mind little cussing here and there. I HIGHLY reccomend this game (as well as the sequel Rock Band 2)

Best of its time

You will hear Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun," Radiohead's "Creep" (censored), and many other great songs.

hello children

This is a great game, i highly reccomend it. You get to crate an awesome character, pick an awesome customizable instrument. If you are playing with more people, you can create a band and pick its name ect. All the insruments are fun. They have lots of great songs too, wont get fooled again by the who, sabatoge by the beastie boys, blitzkrieg bop by the ramones, dani california by the red hot chili peppers + the clash, queens of the stone age and others. When you are old enough to understand this game, it is iffy, if you dont sing when you are young you should be fine

PERFECT with practice :D

Yes, I did concern language, because there is language, but GUESS WHAT! That's life! Your kids will ALWAYS hear swear words. (unless you lock them up in a cage) I love rockband and it is very educational and safe. Would you rather your kid play Left4Dead 2 No...I don't think so.

Better than Guitar Hero!

I have guitar hero and I like it but rock band is even better! You can sing and play drums in this game. My friend has it and he has every instrument. It was awsome!

perfect for families to play together

This game is the best it has it all. You can rock out with multiplayer mode where some one sings, plays the drums or the guitar and bass guitar. Also there is single player modes. The controls are fairly easy to get use too. Also you can learn how band instrument works and how bands come together. There is some language in a few songs but it's bleeped out. Aslo you can choose not to play those songs.

Okay, I got rockband for Christmas in 2008 and then I raced down the stairs and set up the guitar and drums (and microphone) and I started playing. I didn't have a clue what on earth I was doing but I will tell you this: IT WAS AMAZINGLY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoever came out with this wicked game, IS A GENIUS! Everyone who has never heard of it, look it up online and go out to the store and get it! Trust me! You will have so much fun! It's great to play with friends and family, too! GET IT!

Great game, but challenging

This game is awesome, fun and cool. It is not inapropriate in any ways, except for the fact that you can make inapropriate tatoos, suck as a raised middle finger, and bad language, but younger kids won't know how to do that, since it is challenging. This game is fairly challenging to play, but it can help you with a musical instrument such as the bass, guitar, vocals and drums. Suprisingly the drums part can make you stronger, because you have long, challenging parts which make your'e arms move up and down, similar to lifting weights.
