With the release of Rock Band 2 quickly approaching, MTV and reality television producer Mark Burnett are banking that there's a TV audience interested in watching bands faux-rock out on a competition show. According to a job posting on Craigslist, Burnett and MTV (whose gaming division produces Rock Band) are seeking "four people to form their own band and show us their stuff live on stage for the chance to win the Ultimate Rock Band Experience." No other details of the show were revealed, but figure it'll be like America's Best Dance Crew but with plastic instruments and karaoke. Actual musical experience isn't required, but contestants must be at least 18 years old, reside in the Southern California area and be "prepared to rock."
