EA and Harmonix today announced that their popular music game, Rock Band, has landed on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch as Rock Band Reloaded.
Twenty songs, including some Nine Inch Nails, Billy Idol, No Doubt, Nirvana and Vampire Weekend will be available today, with more on the way throughout the month. If Harmonix is anywhere near as good with their song updates as they are on the consoles, there should be plenty to choose from.
Not to mention, anything with the word “Reloaded” at the end is automatically pretty freakin’ awesome.
The game is $4.99 on the iPhone and iPod Touch and $9.99 on the iPad. That includes the following songs, plus an additional bunch of downloads for a total of 29 songs with your purchase:
– ‚ÄúKryptonite‚Äù / 3 Doors Down

– ‚ÄúSo What‚ÄôCha Want‚Äù / Beastie Boys
