You love to jam out to Rock Band, right? And who doesn't love the wholesome goodness of LEGOs? Well, like the proverbial chocolate falling into the peanut butter, you can now enjoy the best of two nerdy obsessions with the launch of LEGO Rock Band.

The game will play along the lines of the other Rock Band franchise entries, including guitar, bass, singer and drums. And the look will be similar, with a full band, concert venues, etc., but the band, instruments, and arenas will look as though they were built from LEGOs, keeping it in step with the other surprisingly addictive LEGO video game titles, Batman, Star Wars and Indiana Jones. Characters, instruments, and the band's entourage will all be customizable, so you can make sure the group clicks. Get it? Clicks? LEGOs, people.

Anyway, the setlist for LEGO Rock Band will be more "family-friendly" and while the total number of songs has yet to be revealed, here's some of what you can expect to play:

Blur "Song 2"

Carl Douglas "Kung Fu Fighting"

Europe "The Final Countdown"

Good Charlotte "Boys and Girls"

Pink "So What"

Can we refer to that as rock blocks? Sorry.

This kiddie-friendly rock is due for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, somewhere in the "holiday 2009" area. Til then, you can enjoy this low-budg bit of LEGO rock ...
