* In the career mode introduction of ''Lego Rock Band'':
** Among the HopelessAuditionees, one guy in line is beating out a rhythm on another guy's head while a girl in line pinches a police officer's behind.
** During the guitar auditions, one guy gets the boot ''before he even has the opportunity to play'', while another guy's audition goes well until his arm flies off.
** During the vocal auditions, one guy has a snake and said snake prevents the singer from reaching the mike.

* With the early 2015 DLC release of Avenged Sevenfold's "Shepherd of Fire", there is a unison bonus right near the very end of the song...and on guitar, it's on the second to last note. That's not even exaggerating - there is ''literally'' [[https://youtu.be/LTPpK_kujyw?t=4m29s one note left in the song]] (a RB hold that goes on for four measures) after you get the unison bonus. Bass and drums have a little bit more after that hold, however, but it's still a weird place to put a unison.

* [[TruthInTelevision The rooftop scene]] in Rock Band 3 (which can be re-viewed in Customize Band > View Band History > Rooftop [=VIPs=]). You get it after getting a tour bus (Regardless of how many road challenges you clear), and it's ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: your band members are the [=VIPs=] at a rooftop party with booze (set to "[[JanesAddiction Been Caught Stealing]]"). The climactic part of this scene is better watched than described; each bandmate has a part in it (perspective with you as guitarist, as band members aren't fixed to their instruments this time):
