'Rock Band' iPhone app: EW exclusive details

Rock Band is coming to the iPhone! EW’s Margaret Lyons reveals in the pages of our latest issue, on stands this Friday, that EA, MTV Games, and Harmonix will release an iPhone/iPod Touch version of the popular rhythm game next week. Much like a miniature version of regular Rock Band, the app will involve tapping four spots on the iPhone screen in time with guitar, bass, drum, and vocal parts.

We also have a list of the 20 core songs that will come with the app. See them all after the jump.
