Looking to follow the path of the great rock stars before you? Check out these cheat codes and unlockables, all for Rock Band 2 on the Xbox 360!

The following cheat codes can be used in Rock Band 2 on the Xbox 360 video game system. Please note that the use of any of these codes will result in the inability to save the game while the code is active.

To enter a cheat code in Rock Band 2 select the Extras menu, then select Modify Game and input one of the following codes.

I have listed the codes in literal (ex. Orange, Orange) as well as shortened (ex. O, O) since many people have requested the codes be shortened so they are easier to read. Remember you must input the keys fairly quickly if you want them to work, as a short pause between cheat entries can throw off the entire endeavor, so make sure you have a good understanding of where the keys are and what you're being asked to do before inputting each cheat code. 

Here are the available Rock Band 2 codes:

Awesome Detection
Cheat code: Yellow, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Orange, Yellow, Blue, Orange
Short cheat code: Y, B, O, Y, B, O, Y, B, O

New Venues Only

Short cheat code: R, R, R, R, Y, Y, Y, Y

Yes, it spells out something inappropriate. We're well aware of that. Was that intentional on the developers' part? Probably. 

If you've input all the keys correctly, you should be able to use all of the cheat codes here at your disposal.

However, if you plan on unlocking achievements as you go, remember that's not something you can do once you've entered cheat codes. You'll have to go back through and play it the old-fashioned way if you plan on improving your gamerscore in any significant way. 

Plus, you won't obviously have access to DLC songs just because you've "unlocked all songs." You'll still have to purchase those if you don't have them. The Rock Band Store has hundreds of tracks you can pick and choose to build a whole new catalog when it's no longer enough to play what's on the disc, too. 

If you want to become a rockstar, just keep coming back and checking on what we have to offer. We'll make sure you're set up with all the latest tips, tricks, and cheats you need to own the stage. Remember Rock Band 3 and Rock Band 4 are available as well, and we'll be able to guide you in the right direction there as well.
