Episode 98: Rock Band, Octopus Heads, And A Naughty Little QB (aka The “Tommy Can You Hear Me?” Edition)

Yes, we know. The Rock Band 3 pining by Scope host Shane has grown tiresome. Luckily, it all comes to a head this week as Rock Band 3 is *FINALLY!!!!!* (emphasis inserted by Shane) released and in stores everywhere.

To celebrate this event (second in importance only to Mikhail Gorbachev’s visit to Minneapolis in 1990) your Scope Show was lucky enough to land one of the biggest Rock Band know-it-alls out there: Rockbandaide’s Tommy. This rhythm game expert raps about rock, band, 3, rhythm, games, and how awesome the Green Bay Packers are.

And if that wasn’t enough, The Kings of Leon really wanted to have another review from their favorite podcast, so they made a brand new album for The Scope to critique!  Will Caleb and Co. be completely happy with what Jared, Shane, and music correspondent Al have to say about it? (Hint: it rhymes with “snope,” “snow sway,” and “not a chance.”) Is their most-favored band status is in danger?

Time will tell. Time. Will. Tell.

The Scope episode #98 commits to using the orange button on the plastic guitar but can’t promise anything when it comes to the vocal harmonies.

    I didn’t meet the requirement of 2500 Achievement Points in prior Rock Band games, so I wasn’t even invited.

    Hey, I glossed over Adam’s ladyfriend because it’s about 50/50 if he’s available to show up. Is she more committed to the Scope than he is? If so, I support her appearance whole-heartedly!

    Really enjoyed the cast. Thanks for asking some of the Rock Band questions I wanted to hear answered.

    The Rock Band aide website is definitely the best place for game information.

    Being just a casual rockband person, that was a long interview. Entertaining, but long.

    almost caught up ready for episode 100.
