We didn't even realize what vaguely familiar song was being mashed up in this Battle of the Bands trailer for a minute -- it sounded cool, and it was exciting, and it seemed like the kind of thing we would enjoy playing in a rhythm game. Then the "Latin" version kicked in and we figured it out --...

Battle of the Band Archetypes

We aren't entirely certain about the actual back-and-forth-waggling mechanics of Battle of the Bands (formerly Band Mashups). But we are quite certain that we enjoy the over-the-top band graphics. THQ and Planet Moon want to make damn sure that you know which musical style your band represents. A...
