Rock Band is a music video game developed by Harmonix Music Systems, published by MTV Games, and distributed by EA Distribution. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions were released in the United States on November 21, 2007, while the PlayStation 2 version was released in the U.S. on December 18, 2007 and the Wii version will be released on June 22, 2008. The game was released in Canada for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on December 22, 2007 and for the PlayStation 2 on January 2, 2008. It is due for release in Europe as a timed exclusive on Xbox 360 on May 23, 2008, followed by a release on the other platforms on August 29, 2008.

Rock Band allows players to perform in virtual bands by providing up to four players with the ability to play three different peripherals modeled after music instruments (a guitar peripheral for lead guitar and bass guitar gameplay, a drum peripheral, and a microphone). These peripherals are used to simulate the playing of rock music by hitting scrolling notes on-screen. Players using the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles can interact through both online and offline multiplayer capabilities.
