The game itself will utilize the touch screen of the Android phones, and will initially feature 15 songs, including Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid' and 'Welcome to the Jungle' by Guns 'n' Roses, but there will be a new song release every month.

There's no word yet about pricing, but it has been revealed that there will be other games coming to Android, based on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, Tetris, and Monopoly. Exciting news for Android's Market, and will definitely kick it off to be a strong competitor to certain other mobile application distribution services.
