Mission: Rock Band Referrals

I am getting kind of desperate for Rock Band. The game looks amazing, and all I want is that giant box in my home, me on guitars, the wife with the microphone, having a great time. With 11 days to the game’s release, I am stuck with one simple fact of life: I can’t afford it. So, I’ve got a plan: Earn it through referral fees.

The plan is that every Amazon referral related to Rock Band or Guitar Hero will count towards the purchase, and once I reach $169.99 in related referral earnings, I’ll buy the game. So, in order to do so, I just have to link to the products from here, and encourage you guys to, if you are already going to buy the game, to do so from this here blog. If you don’t want it, don’t waste your money for my six percent, but if you’ve been waiting for Rock Band, make this blog part of your route to getting it.

Before this has even started, I’ve earned $6 from someone who purchased the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Bundle for the Xbox 360. So, that’s 3.53% of the way towards my goal. If you want to help, buy something from this list:
