Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Rock Band

beatlesDM3105_468x299I’m really enjoying the Beatles Downloadable Content for Beatles Rock Band. So far they’ve added the incomparable Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and the one that first indicated that the Beatles were going from Pop to Art, Rubber Soul. I can’t emphasize enough how important and kid safe I believe these albums are, and I disagree with the T-Teen rating vehemently.  My kids love it, my wife loves it, it’s one of the rare games that always brings our family together. I’m left wondering though, how are they going to encode Revolution #9 when they get to The White Album?

  1. T for teen? Probably because some of the lyrics from the Beatles’ songbook do indeed deal with more mature themes – the last track on Rubber Soul – Run for your Life – includes the lyrics:

    “Let this be a sermon
    I mean everything I’ve said
    Baby, I’m determined
    And I’d rather see you dead

    “You better run for your life if you can, little girl
    Hide your head in the sand little girl
    Catch you with another man
    That’s the end-a, little girl”

    Not exactly “Family viewing”-class sentiments… :- ) So while the T rating on a per-song basis doesn’t reflect the content, it probably does as a whole. But I agree with your feelings about Beatles Rock Band: love it!

  2. My wife and daughter’s love it as well.We got both RB2 and Beatles RB and they prefer the Beatles. The fact that the Lips microphones work with it is awesome as well. Less cords the better. And when we fired up Come Together and I heard my 4 year old daughter’s voice say unprompted “Shoot Me” at the correct time in the beginning of the song, I almost peed my pants. Priceless.
