LEGO Rock Band is a unique family-friendly music experience, which will allow families, tweens and teens to experience a wild journey to rock stardom where they can "Build a Band and Rock the Universe."

LEGO Rock Band is a unique family-friendly music experience, which will allow families, tweens and teens to experience a wild journey to rock stardom, combining the multiplayer music experience of Rock Band with the fun, customization and humor of the LEGO videogame franchise packed with brilliant chart-topping songs and classic favorites suitable for younger audiences.

Players will become rockers as they embark on a journey to stardom that the whole family can enjoy as they work their way through local venues, stadiums and fantasy locations on Earth and beyond that mimic the imaginative settings that the LEGO world offers. Also continuing the LEGO “build-and-play” gaming experience, players will be able to create their own LEGO Rock Band style as they customize their minifigure avatars, band and entourage, including roadies, managers and crew. LEGO Rock Band supports Rock Band instruments, as well as other music game controllers.

In addition, the game will support downloadable content from the massive Rock Band Music Store to be played within LEGO Rock Band, while enabling songs from LEGO Rock Band to be exported on X360 or PS3 and available to play across all game modes in the Rock Band Music Platform.

Fans can extend their LEGO Rock Band experience on Xbox 360 and PS3 with downloadable content that can be purchased through the LEGO Rock Band store. Players will have access to all of the songs in the Rock Band Music Store that have been identified to be suitable for all ages. Those cleared songs are the only tracks that will appear within the LEGO Rock Band store for purchase. The LEGO Rock Band store will continually highlight any new family-friendly tunes that can be played across the Rock Band platform as they are released for Rock Band.

Disc export will rely on the technology pioneered by Harmonix to export tracks from the original Rock Band disc to the music library of Rock Band 2. Owners of LEGO Rock Band on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will be able to enter a unique code from an insert in their game manual into a dedicated website. The website will provide instructions allowing owners to unlock the export functionality of LEGO Rock Band. At that point, players will be able to export tracks from LEGO Rock Band to their hard drives for play in all game modes of Rock Band Music Platform for a nominal export fee. An internet connection is required to perform this disc export.
