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.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
