Anyone that has played any of the Lego video games knows that they are awesome.  Lego Star Wars – awesome.  Lego Indiana Jones – also awesome.  Lego Batman – until now, the most awesome of all.  In fact, that one is so great that the Webmaster and I accidentally spent an entire Saturday playing it some months ago.  But now to top all of them is Lego Rock Band.  Before we heard anything else about Lego Rock Band the Webmaster and I thought it sounded like a ton of fun, but now that we know both David Bowie and Iggy Pop are going to be featured it has climbed straight to the tops of our pile of Games To Own and Love. 

The  complete  song list for the game will be:

All American Rejects – “Swing, Swing”
The Automatic – “Monster”
Blink-182 – “Aliens Exist”
Blur – “Song 2”
Bon Jovi – “You Give Love a Bad Name”

The game play will be similar to that of the other Rock Band  games with specialized controllers being used for each of the instruments.  Players will also be able to design their own band members, build a Rock Den, earn prizes and rankings, and, perhaps best of all, use the power of rock (Patton Oswalt will be so tickled), to destroy stuff.  Like I said before, awesome. 

So, without further ado, let’s meet Lego Bowie and Lego Iggy.

One Response to “David Bowie and Iggy Pop Turn Blocky and Yellow for Lego Rock Band”

  1. Latetotheshow Says:

    That triangular body makes our lad look like a blobby middle-aged guy trying to recapture the Eighties. Even the cheekbones don’t really help. Iggy, on the other hand, manages to look menacing even when Lego-ized.

    The Power Of Rock has been destroying relationships, families and immune systems for decades – erm…what kind of stuff?
