Green Day confirms Rock Band release

Keep an eye out for Green Day showing up on Rock Band sometime later this year

Earlier yesterday morning during Kevin and Bean's Breakfast radio show on KROQ 106.7 FM, the band Green Day stopped by to perform some songs off of their latest album, 21st Century Breakdown.

After performing, a Q&A was held and a fan in the audience asked the band if they planned to release some songs for Rock Band. Billie Joe Armstrong, the lead singer of Green Day responded with:

"Yeah, we're doing a whole Rock Band, uh...(audience applause)" After the crowd died down at the news, the DJ asked when he expected it to come out. Armstrong replied, "I'm not sure, soon. Not this week soon, like this year soon, I think by the end of the year, something like that."

Whether it's going to be an exclusive Rock Band title like say, the upcoming Beatles Rock Band, or just some of their songs coming to the next Rock Band incarnation, remains to be seen.

What is clear however, is that although Green Day may know how to rock in the physical world, their Rock Band skills leaves much to be desired, as each member expressed how bad they were at the game.

"I've given it my best shot, but if you were born anytime before 1985 you're gonna suck."

While no full details on the game are yet certain, keep an eye out for Green Day showing up on Rock Band sometime later this year.

To check out the full performance and interview go to KROQ. You'll find the Rock Band question in Part 5 around minute seven.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
