The band is in the studio and they're going a little crazy with the samples. We're a straightforward rock band but they're putting explosion noises in every rest spot, overdubbing a million acoustic guitars and just generally dicking around with the tracks. All of this is spur-of-the-moment stuff that we've never done in rehearsal or live and is not feasible for us to ever do live.

Besides, isn't it overdone at this point to have like a war movie going on in the background of your rock album? I'm against it but can anyone here think of an objective argument for it?

Sounds like you want to use this thread to fight with your band?

Just talk to them about your issues with all the samples.

If you want to know whether they are "overdone", the correct answer is "does it make the music better?". If it does, keep it. If it doesn't, don't.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

It depends on the context and whether or not it sounds good in the song. Adding some ambience/atmosphere is fine. That said, a rock song with explosions and sirens in the background for no apparent reason is probably going to sound ridiculous.
