Mountain's "Mississippi Queen" featured in Rock Band. Rock Band allows players to perform in virtual bands by providing up to four players with the ability to play three different peripherals modeled after music instruments (a guitar peripheral for lead guitar and bass guitar gameplay, a drum peripheral, and a microphone). These peripherals are used to simulate the playing of rock music by hitting scrolling notes on-screen. Players using the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles can interact through both online and offline multiplayer capabilities. In addition to the 58 core songs included on the game disc, hundreds of downloadable songs are being released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions.
