The first musical mashup for the Wii! Battle it out in your favorite musical style taking on the role of one of 11 bands trying to rise to the top of the charts in the city of New Cadenza. Play against a friend, or alone in an extensive and intensive campaign. Compete with an eclectic playlist of over 30 modern and classic hits from the past 40 years of music.

Each song is recorded in five different styles – rock, country, Latin, funk/hip-hop and marching band for over 150 playable tracks. You set the tune as you compete with a unique music switching method. The player winning the battle sets the style of music. Lose ground and you could find the style of music changing from funk to country!

Score points by hitting your directorial marks as they scroll up the screen. Build up combos of successes and unleash your musical attacks such as smoke bombs. Block incoming assaults in time to the musical beat, as you play in a variety of venues. Will your undead mariachis succeed with a funky version of The Ramones' Blitzkrieg Bop? Or, will your opponent's country rendition of the "Whoomp! (There it is) be a chart busting hit?
