Rock Revolution: The Ultimate Rhythm Game for Aspiring Rockstars

Released in 2008, Rock Revolution is a rhythm game that lets you live out your rockstar dreams. With 41 mind-bending rock tracks to choose from, you can grab your guitar or drumsticks and jam out with friends or go solo. But Rock Revolution isn’t just about playing other people’s music – it also lets you unleash your creativity in Studio Mode, where you can create your own music in a state-of-the-art multi-track studio.


Rock Revolution’s gameplay is similar to other rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Players use a guitar-shaped controller or a drum kit to match the notes that scroll down the screen. The notes are color-coded to match the buttons on the controller or drum kit, and players must press the correct button at the right time to hit the note.

There are three different difficulty levels to choose from: Easy, Medium, and Hard. On Easy, the notes are slower and easier to hit, while on Hard, the notes are faster and more difficult to hit. Players can also choose to play with or without a backing band.


Rock Revolution features a diverse soundtrack of 41 rock tracks from a variety of artists, including:

  • “Ace of Spades” by Motörhead
  • “Barracuda” by Heart
  • “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen
  • “Cherry Pie” by Warrant
  • “Crazy Train” by Ozzy Osbourne
  • “Detroit Rock City” by Kiss
  • “Don’t Stop Believin'” by Journey
  • “Enter Sandman” by Metallica
  • “Hit Me with Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar
  • “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts
  • “Livin’ on a Prayer” by Bon Jovi
  • “More Than a Feeling” by Boston
  • “Pour Some Sugar on Me” by Def Leppard
  • “Rock and Roll All Nite” by Kiss
  • “Smooth” by Santana featuring Rob Thomas
  • “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns N’ Roses
  • “Walk This Way” by Aerosmith
  • “You Shook Me All Night Long” by AC/DC

Studio Mode

In addition to playing other people’s music, Rock Revolution also lets you unleash your creativity in Studio Mode. In Studio Mode, you can create your own music using a variety of instruments, including guitar, bass, drums, and vocals. You can also add effects to your music, such as distortion, reverb, and delay.

Once you’ve created a song, you can share it with other players online. You can also download songs that other players have created.


Rock Revolution received mixed reviews from critics. Some praised the game’s diverse soundtrack and innovative Studio Mode, while others criticized its repetitive gameplay and lack of online multiplayer. However, the game was a commercial success, selling over 1 million copies worldwide.


Rock Revolution is considered to be one of the best rhythm games of its generation. It was nominated for several awards, including Game of the Year at the 2008 Golden Joystick Awards. The game’s success helped to popularize the rhythm game genre and paved the way for future games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero Live.


Rock Revolution is the ultimate rhythm game for aspiring rockstars. With its diverse soundtrack, innovative Studio Mode, and fun gameplay, Rock Revolution is a must-have for any fan of rock music.
