'Rock Band: Radiohead': If only this were a real game!

Sad but true: I am such a fanatical Radiohead enthusiast that, upon viewing the parody trailer for a fake Rock Band: Radiohead video game (below), I found myself totally wishing that this were a real product. Even though this clip is pretty much just an excuse to dis Radiohead for making “depressing songs about math and fish.” Whatever, dude — sounds cool to me!

Anyone else wish this were Harmonix’s next project now that The Beatles: Rock Band is finally arriving? Caterwaul your thoughts in the comments below. I’ll be here, trying to memorize the finger-taps required to play the horn part from “The National Anthem” in case this imaginary game ever actually comes to pass.

    radiohead sucks

  • Tim

    You’re right Jose. Radiohead, the most important band of this generation, sucks.

  • jose

    whew i thought id catch some hostility for that.

  • Jeff W

    Just a large track pack would be good enough for me! Add Paranoid Android, High and Dry, There There, Just, Idioteque, and The National Anthem and I’d be perfectly happy. As much as I love Radiohead, a full game with a set list of How to Disappear Completely, Videotape, No Surprises, and Pyramid Song isn’t exact what I want to do before hitting the bars.

  • NYJ

    Radiohead is HIGHLY overrated.

    • Sammy

      Radiohead are higly UNDERRATED by the mentally challenged who can’t get them.

  • !

    i’d snatch up a Rock Band Radiohead in seconds….

  • brian

    Love Radiohead but meh, they don’t need their own game ala The Beatles: Rock Band. A track pack would suffice.

    haven’t you numbnuts heard? taste in music is subjective. take your oral defacations elsewhere.

    Shouldn’t we just make fun of people who play Rockband? I mean, you’re not doing anything. You’re not learning to play. You’re pretending to play in video game form. That’s really dumb.

    • Umm

      Yeah, having fun should only be derived from playing real instruments! Every other medium of entertainment is dumb and nobody should do it! Am I right guys!

  • kris

    i would LLOOOOVVVVEEE this to be true. i already complain about how there aren’t more Radiohead songs available for the existing RockBand titles. if anyone from Harmonix is reading this: you cannot ignore such a great band. put more out, either download or a whole disc.

  • Alex

    That video is freakin’ hilarious! And obviously made a hardcore fan of the band.

    Only a true fanatic could be this honest about the band’s odd appeal :)

  • gg

    this would never happen at radiohead’s blessing.

    it could happen though since EMI does own the bands records and has exploited them already with the re-issues this year
