** It was all MTV, really, not Harmonix (which, though an impressive feat without a doubt, is not that awesome). That said, look at the staff listing of Harmonix on their Wiki entry. If you recognize even one name from that listing (and no doubt you will), you'll understand how significant and amazing this staff is. If there's such a thing as a Crowning Recruitment of Awesome, this is it.

* For those gamers who identify as LGBT?, its pretty awesome to see that Cold Clear Light by Johnny Blazes and the Pretty Boys is sung by the first non-binary singer in Rock Band history.
** Its also pretty funny if you outfit your singer with the male/female split-down-the-middle suit/dress.

* [[DoublePlay Playing an instrument while singing.]] [[DifficultButAwesome Really difficult, but also rewarding like few things in video gaming]]. No wonder even the loading screens suggest trying! (Hint: get a mic stand first, although you can use the headsets on 360 and PS3.)

** ''Lego Rock Band'' has the Film/{{Ghostbusters}} theme. That is all.

*** The Rock Power Challenges in that game take ThePowerOfRock to an all new level, which includes destroying a building, chasing away ghosts (While playing the Ghostbusters theme of course), and using it to defeat a octopus.

* ''[[BuiltWithLego LEGO]] RockBand'': Lego Iggy Pop? Good. Lego Music/DavidBowie? Cool. Lego [[{{Queen}} Freddie Mercury]]? ''Awesome''.

* Many of the sorting methods offered by the game use very good secondary and tertiary sorts. For example, a typical artist sort will first sort by artist, then by the alphabetical order of the album or song. In ''Rock Band'', it sorts first by Artist, then by the release date of the album the song is on, and then by that song's position in the album.

* In ''RockBand'', whenever you beat a Solo Tour or get into the Hall of Fame, you and your band get your own crowning moment of awesome in a giant fireworks show. This is made all the more sweet if you just beat the likes of Green Grass and High Tides or Run to the Hills on Expert. Especially Run to the Hills -- "The only way to light up a stage is with a big-ass gong!"
** This pales in comparison Rock Band's predecessor, ''Guitar Hero'', where, after defeating Bark at the Moon's blistering last solo, the lights dim, the chanting begins, and your avatar [[PillarOfLight ascends into the air in a Pillar of ROCK]].
** Guitar Hero II and III were pretty good as well--in the former, after you beat Free Bird, you're abducted by a neon-lit UFO, which flies into distant space leaving a constellation that reads, "LIVE AND LET ROCK", and in the latter, you defeat Satan (aka Lou) in a rock-off to a metal version of The Devil Went Down to Georgia featuring no less than 26 guitar solos, causing him to be sucked into a chasm of swirling souls; your band escapes Hell on ''flying motorcycles with bat wings''. And just when you thought you were done, you see a loading screen appear that reads "Good Luck". The credits begin to roll, a note highway appears, and Through the Fire and Flames, by Music/Dragonforce, begins to play.
* Harmonix snagging the Beatles from right under Activision's nose counts as an epic CMOA, especially considering the Beatles have yet to enter even ITUNES! [[http://kotaku.com/5070885/mtv-and-apple-corps-join-forces-for-beatles-music-game Source]].

* Whenever the crowd starts singing, which is a sign that you're slaying the song. Even more so in The Offspring's 'Come Out and Play (Keep 'Em Seperated)' when the crowd absolutely BELTS "you gotta keep 'em seperated! HEY!"

** For vocals, you have pretty much anything by Queen, but especially "I Want It All," "Somebody to Love" and [=RB3=]'s "Bohemian Rhapsody." Other excellent vocals songs include Iron Maiden's "Fear of the Dark," Pearl Jam's "Jeremy," (from ''Music/TenAlbum''), Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" (duh) and, courtesy of RBN, Stan Bush's "The Touch." [=RB3=] added a lot of excellent vox songs to the mix, like Whitesnake's "Here I Go Again" and Dio's "Rainbow in the Dark." Basically, if you like singing, there is a LOT of good stuff in Rock Band.
