Contest DetailsI'm going to give you guys contest information up front, so that you have to time to think about your entries, but the contest doesn't actually start until midnight tonight (Central Standard Time).
First off, the prize, which is a Rock Band package (360 version). However, since it's both console-specific and region-locked, if you win the contest and don't want the Rock Band package, you can pick any two games as a replacement. The only requirement is that I can order them online. In that case, the Rock Band package will go to the second place winner.
To enter, send me an e-mail with both a fictional band name AND the name of their first album. The subject of the e-mail should be "CONTEST." One entry per person, please.
Brandon Cackowski-Schnell gets the credit for suggesting album name as part of the contest.
The contest is open from midnight CST tonight to noon CST tomorrow. That should give everyone in all time zones a chance to enter.
I'll try to announce semi-finalists around 2 p.m. CST tomorrow (Wednesday).
Judging will be 100% subjective, so when your band Monkey Steals Peach and their hit album Don't Feel the Fuzz get eliminated, blame me but don't hate me.
