I'm 49 and my son is 8, but we've found quite a few songs to play and enjoy together on LEGO ROCK BAND (Wii). There are a few 70s and 80s classics, but most are newer. It's not hard to figure out why some of these songs are on here; they stick in your brain, like most hits. Pop, rock, punk, alternative, metal, and more are represented. Of the songs you don't already know, many will appeal to you. Story Mode seems a little rambling and repetitious, but it's one way to practice and get better. There's always the mode for playing whatever song you want, and you can slow these songs down as much as 50% in Practice Mode -- and a few of the songs in Expert Mode require it! Just because it's Lego doesn't mean the harder songs and expertise levels have been simplified or dumbed down. My only quibble with Lego Rock Band (aside from the $50 price -- I got it on sale, so thanks, Walmart!) is that it sometimes takes long to load a song. But overall, this has been fun for many weeks, and a good alternative when other Rock Band games threaten to get overly familiar.
