The Beatles may be too old school to put their songs on iTunesóiTunes, peopleóbut even the Fab 4 (and their stakeholders) can't deny the Guitar Hero/Rock Band juggernaut.

ďItís cool," Ono (er, Ono Lennon) said in the press release. "I love it and hope it will keep inspiring and encouraging the young generation for many decades."

I agree with Yoko. It's about time the youth were introduced to this obscure band.

Do you believe the U.S. Supreme Court will order Wisconsin to redraw our legislative maps so the majority of legislative districts are competitive and voters will actually have a real choice between a Democrat and Republican?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
