Killing Zombies with the Power of ROCK!!!!!

HorrorBlips: vote it up!

Although Romero's zombie rock film Diamond Dead may never happen, at least you can get your fix of zombies and rock 'n' roll from the upcoming Wii game Rock of the Dead.

In Rock of the Dead (Epicenter games), players can use their Guitar Hero controllers to input riffs that will kill approaching hordes of zombies. According to 1up.com's news story on the budget title, "the game features co-op play, and instead of licensed music uses rock versions of classical songs."

It is also reported that Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog actors Neil Patrick Harris and Felicia Day will be supplying voices for game characters.

Now let me ask you, do you want to rock?
