Brutal Legend

This looks like a metal music lover's dream video game!!!!
-Action-adventure-real time strategy game created by Double Fine Productions, published by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
-The game features a character based on Jack Black named Eddie Riggs, who is a roadie transported to a fantasy world inspired by the artwork of heavy metal albums
-The player must defeat enemies while defending the stage
-Quite a few famous metal musicians make their voices known in here, such as: Rob Halford (Judas Priest), Ozzy Osbourne (Black Sabbath), Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), Lita Ford (The Runaways), and along with famous celebs
-More than 100 metal songs make an appearance too, so for video game lovers and metal lovers, it's a combination of the best of both worlds. It's a metal music lover's paradise!

-Centered around a roadie named Eddie Riggs, he is inspired by the heavy metal artwork of metal musicians he listens to. He takes his weapon, his battle axe, a Flying V guitar and must lead the humans against a range of supernatural overlords using his guitar to tap in to the world of music

-There will be interludes where you must play a minigame, which is similar to Guitar Hero, playing a riff on a guitar
-In the game, the player earns "Fire Tribute" from completing missions
-You can also collect songs along the way, by way of finding monuments. You can create setlists from the radio in game, called "The Mouth of Metal"
-In the game, Eddie can use specific groups to his advantage. Like using 'headbangers' to destroy statues. BTW, if you don't know what a 'headbanger' is, it's a nickname for people who go to heavy metal and hard rock concerts. It's a violent shaking of the head back and forth, thus called 'headbanging'
-The game takes place in a mystical world inspired by true heavy metal music. This world is enslaved by Doviculus, voiced by Tim Curry. He is assisted by his glam metal human minion, General Lionwhyte (Rob Halford), whose name is based on band White Lion

-The game style was influenced and inspired by Frank Fazetta, who created a lot of heavy metal album covers
-The main character, Eddie Riggs, was then created as being someone who was half Jack Black and half Glenn Danzig, of the band Danzig

-General Lionwhyte and his minions are based on the whole glam metal look of the 1980s, especially with his long hair that he can use to fly around with
General Lionwhyte (voiced by Rob Halford of Judas Priest)
-There are also filters in here, for excessive gore and excessive profanity, much of it being spoken by Osbourne or Black. You can use these "filters" to bleep out the words
-It was released in Oct. 2009. At the Download Festival in Donington Park, in England, Electronic Arts arranged for 440 fans of Brutal Legend to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest number of air guitar players, all playing "Ace of Spades" by Motorhead
