The Green Day: Rock Band wiki last edited by SaturdayNightSpecials on 04/04/14 12:22AM View full history

Overview

Green Day: Rock Band is the follow-up to 2009's band-specific title The Beatles: Rock Band, and chronicles much of Green Day's career. The game was released on June 8, 2010 in North America, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. It was officially announced on December 12, 2009, when the first trailer premiered at the 2009 Spike TV Video Game Awards. Band members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt, and Tre Cool are all featured alongside 47 songs from the punk-rock group's discography, three unique venues, and plenty of assorted extras, including interviews and live performances from the band members.

The core gameplay is markedly similar to the rest of the Rock Band franchise.

Versions

Green Day: Rock Band Plus features special packaging and a free export of all songs to Rock Band, Rock Band 2, and Rock Band 3. For the Xbox 360 and PS3 stand-alone games, all 47 songs can be exported to Rock Band, Rock Band 2, LEGO Rock Band, and Rock Band 3. The songs are not exportable on the Wii.

GameStop customers who pre-ordered the regular edition of the game received a free export code. This offer did not apply to the Plus version, as the bonus is already included in the package.

Features

Green Day: Rock Band features the following:

  • The game features likenesses of Billie Joe Armstrong, Tre Cool, and Mike Dirnt.
  • The likenesses match each era of the band's career from early 90's era at The Warehouse to American Idiot era at Milton Keynes and finally current day (21st Century Breakdown) at The Fox Theater.
  • Three-part vocal harmonies, first featured in The Beatles: Rock Band, are used.
  • Venues and art can be selected from key moments in the band's history, such as the gig they performed at Milton Keynes, England for their live album and DVD "Bullet in a Bible", The Fox Theater in Oakland, CA, and a fictional venue The Warehouse, which is supposed to represent places where Green Day used to jam at before making it big.
  • Players are able to unlock over 100 images and 40 minutes of videos featuring outtakes, interviews, and live performances.
  • All 47 songs are fully exportable to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Rock Band, Rock Band 2, LEGO Rock Band, and Rock Band 3.
