((The Slip)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

Everyone knows that Guitar Hero is the best video game ever invented. This is not an opinion, this is a fact. Another fact is that all of those "secret" songs you can unlock all completely bite. Just because you're a video game programmer's friend does not mean your band rocks. There's a reason your songs are hidden, let's keep it that way.

There is only one exception. The Slip's "Even Rats" is a thoroughly enjoyable play. Once I had played it, I immediately wanted to play it again. The only other song I've ever done that with was Sum 41's "Fat Lip" (my other top fave).

"Even Rats" has such nice soothing guitar melodies that get just tricky enough at the end to boost up its "fun" factor. As I type these words, I hear those pretty notes in my head, and it makes me want to run home to the only thing important thing in my life; my video console system. It helps me feel less alone in this dark cruel cold world of despair. But then again, so do Twinkies.
