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 "rock" band could look like anything, from guys in suits and identical haircuts to people who look like they just got out of class, but Planet Moon went super-goth.

Not only was this guy probably just listening to "Bela Lugosi's Dead," he appears to be dead himself. The styles are also reflected in the gameplay tracks.
