A game-specific drumset, bass guitar and vocal microphone came with the game. Game play is the same for the instruments, but the vocalist is scored on how close to the proper pitch he or she is.

Rock Band also introduced downloadable songs, which included BÍC's "Transmaniacon MC" and "Godzilla".

This game is a puzzle/action-adventure interactive-movie type game that features famous actors and actresses, as well as BÖC's "(Don't Fear) The Reaper".

Home-made level

The original first-person shooter, Doom, offered people the possibility of making their own Doom "levels" with customized scenes. One BOC fan created his own "BÖC" Doom level, and offered it for download on the web. Although not an "official" BOC-in-videogame reference, it is notable nonetheless.
