P.O.D. band members will challenge lucky fans in the latest Xbox Live Game with Fame session. Fans that are interested in the chance to challenge P.O.D. in Tony Hawk's American Wasteland on Friday, March 3 must fill out an entry form by 6:00 p.m. ET on March 2 to enter to play the band.

Selected fans will receive a confirmation email and friend request with the time of event and band's gamertag. For those who live outside the United States, please just include your name, age and email address to enter.

"We are really excited about what lay in store for P.O.D. in 2006," said Wuv, the band's drummer. "One of the reasons we think this year is going to be great for us is because of the huge support system we have from our fans. This is a great opportunity to get to know the 'Warriors' a little better over Xbox Live. No need to take it easy on us though," Wuv concludes. "We spend plenty of time practicing."

Since the release of their first album just six years ago, P.O.D. has earned global acclaim and multi-platinum sales for their trademark brand of uplifting power rock. Over their 14-year career, the band has logged a remarkable array of achievements, including worldwide sales exceeding seven million, three Grammy nominations, sold-out international concert tours, a series of top-charting rock radio hits, and four #1 videos on MTV's "Total Request Live," most recently with "Goodbye for Now" which is still holding one of the top spots on the countdown. Supported by their passionate fan base of
'Warriors,' P.O.D. has proudly created what they describe as "a catalog of music that we want to respect and honor with each step into the future."
