Game Introduction

Aerosmith has been kidnapped by the New Order Nation (NON), an organization whose goal is to enslave all of the world's youth population by suppressing all forms of entertainment. As one of few remaining free youth, you are equipped with a machine gun and the strongest weapon available: music, to free all of the youth (and Aerosmith, too!) and put an end to the NON menace.

Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

If you manage to blow up the NON-bus while it is going off screen at the end of the level, the game wil freeze up. The coins can still be put in the machine and you can add more players but the game just stand there until the operator resets the machine.

Trivia
