Rock Band 2 Wii DLC Adds Vaughan, No Doubt, Jimmy Eat World

Harmonix and MTV Games announced today the addition of fourteen tracks to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content for Wii, including tracks from electric blues artists Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble as well as alternative bands Jimmy Eat World and No Doubt.

All ten tracks from Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble’s debut album Texas Flood (1983) will be made available in the Wii Rock Band Music Store. Tracks include the popular studio cuts of “Pride and Joy,” “Texas Flood” and “Rude Mood,”as well as “Love Struck Baby,” “Tell Me,” “Testify,” “Mary Had a Little Lamb,” “Dirty Pool,” “I’m Cryin” and “Lenny.”

In addition, the lineup will also include “New” from the alternative rock pioneers of No Doubt. The track is featured on the band’s album Return of Saturn (2000). As previously announced, the aforementioned tracks from No Doubt and Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble will also be available to Rock Band owners of Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3.

Wii owners can also look forward to three tracks from alternative band Jimmy Eat World including “Lucky Denver Mint” from the band’s 1999 album Clarity, “Futures” (Futures, 2004) and “Sweetness” from the band’s 2001 album Bleed American. The tracks come from the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content just released last week to owners of Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3.

Wii fans can expect a rollout of previously released downloadable Rock Band content until the entire back catalogue of more than 570 songs is available.
