The Harmonix team had the right idea about making Rock Band but, it seems that they didn't follow through with the songs. Comparing Rock Band to Guitar Hero is like comparing Paramore-Rock Band to Slipknot-Guitar Hero and Dragonforce-Guitar Hero, Slipknot and Dragonforce blows Paramore away in every respect. Sorry if the references bother some people but that's just the way I feel about Rock Band. I won't even recommend renting this because it sucks so much. The song selection is horrible even with 52 songs (or something like that) it still sucks! The only thing I liked about this game was that it came from Gamefly and it saved me 60$ from actually buying this game. THANK YOU GAMEFLY!! Try it and see for yourself that the songs suck, and I couldn't even find someone to play mic when I searched for a match online, that has to tell you something about how bad this game is. PLEASE DON'T RENT THIS!!
Captain's log, stardate 2008. The natives of this planet have abandoned all sense of reason. I have witnessed them tapping plastic toys, somehow believing they are "guitar heroes" in a "rock band". They have foregone the sensible art of honing their musical skills through practice and hard work. Spock, there should be a public outcry, instead I sadly must report that this abomination has an average rating of 8.7!!! There is no intelligent life on Earth.
