*The Story Gang - The Story Gang will be a leader board showing who has completed the story mode of the game. There will be 2 parts to this: The first part will show the first 10 players to complete the story mode of the game; and the other part will show the quickest times that the story mode has been completed in. Members of the gang will receive special online bonuses marking their achievements in the game.

*The 100% Club - The 100% club is very similar to the story gang, but this time marking the achievements of gamers that have completed the game 100%. There will be 2 leaderboards, one showing the first 10 people to complete the game, and the other showing who has completed the game quickest. Anyone who completes the game with 100% between 12:00 am April 29 2008 and 11:59 pm May 19 EST will be sent a 'key to the city' to mark their achievement.

*The Hall Of Fame - The Hall of Fame will mark many records and statistical achievements completed by users within the game. It will also contain a personal awards display of a gamers personal in-game achievements.

Once a player hears a song that they like, they can then pull up their in-game mobile phone and call "ZIT-555-0100". If the player has their console gamername linked to their Social Club account, they will then be able to then access a list of songs they have tagged via the Social Club website. They can then purchase the song via Amazon MP3.
