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.

The codes are listed in literal (ex. Orange, Orange) as well as shortened (ex. O, O) format 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.

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.
