“iPhone” on Rock Band Network for Xbox 360

PhotobucketHave you ever been on a date with an iPhone fanatic? Singer/songwriter (and gamer) Rhune Kincaid can sympathize. His hilarious song, “iPhone,”  is now available for download on the Rock Band Network . Gamers can rock along exclusively on Xbox 360. Priced at $1 (or 80 MS points), it’s cheaper than most apps!

The Official RBN page for ‘iPhone’ where rockers can download the track is: rockband.com/songs/UGC_5003695

Gamers will have a chance to play Rock Band with the artist himself on Tuesday, September 14th from 5pm-8pm PST. For an invitation, just send an XBL message to “[GT Removed].”

If you can beat Rhune at his own song in a vocal battle, you win an awesome “Coppin’ a Feel” T-Shirt.

So, that’s the fairly amazing news that I’ve been hinting at for a couple of months. I didn’t want to say anything about it, partially because it seemed like bad marketing, but mostly because I didn’t want to jinx it. Even when I knew it was going to happen, it still sounded like a dream.

As a huge, HUGE fan of the Rock Band franchise, I’m delirious to have one of my songs in the game. If nothing in the press release makes any sense to you, you’re probably old and don’t get why this is awesome, so I’ll explain it how I would for my grandpa:

“It’s a video game grandpa. Yes, a game like checkers, but on the TV with moving pictures. Yes, moving pictures like Clara Bow. It’s a music video game where the kids play a guitar and a…. yes, guitar like Django Reinhardt, only electric… Yes, electronic like Duane Eddy, and now the kids can play along with one of my songs. No, it’s not a Duane Eddy song. No, the song isn’t about checkers. It’s about iPhones… oh, fuck it grandpa! “

If you were able to follow along and have a 360, I’d love to see you during my imitation of the “Game with Fame” program, where I play along with people over Xbox Live. There will be an in-person party as well for those of you within range of Burbank, CA. Huge thanks go out to Matt Greig and Luv Kohli for helping make this happen.

If you don’t want to be outshone on fake plastic instruments by me, study up on this video preview:
