Rock Band Adds More Green Day

Harmonix and MTV Games today
announced that a three pack of songs from Green Day will be added to the Rock
Band Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and Wii on Dec. 15 and
to PlayStation 3 on Dec. 17.

Green Day is one of the more than
390 bands currently available through the Rock Band platform. With more than
1,000 songs available, Rock Band is, without question, the industry leader in
providing the best selection of interactive musical content, songs and artists.

Green Day will bring three more
tracks from 21st Century Breakdown to the Rock Band Music Store as downloadable
content. The three pack of songs will include, "Christian’s Inferno," "Last of
the American Girls," and "Viva La Gloria!". These tracks will be available for
purchase as “Green Day Pack 02” as well as individual tracks on Xbox 360 and
PlayStation 3 system, and as individual tracks on Wii. "Last of the American
Girls" and "Viva La Gloria!" will also be available in the family-friendly LEGO
Rock Band Music Store.

Green Day has won critical acclaim
and numerous accolades, including Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Album for
Dookie, Best Rock Album for American Idiot and Record of the Year for their
smash hit "Boulevard of Broken Dreams." Earlier this year, Green Day released
their eighth studio album, 21st Century Breakdown, on Warner Music Group’s
Reprise Records and released “21 Guns,” “East Jesus Nowhere” and “Know Your
Enemy” on the Rock Band platform. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard
Top 200 chart, as well as on the Rock, Active Rock and Alternative charts,
fueled by the alternative radio No. 1 single “Know Your Enemy.” This past
September, the band took home three 2009 MTV Video Music Awards for “21” Guns,”
winning all three categories in which the clip was nominated: “Best Rock Video,”
“Best Cinematography,” and “Best Direction.” Green Day performed Nov. 5 at the
2009 MTV Europe Music Awards in Berlin. The band was nominated for three awards,
“Best Live Act,” “Best Group” and “Best Rock,” and took home the award for “Best
Rock.” They won an American Music Award in November for Favorite Alternative
Rock Music Artist, and just received three Grammy Award Nominations for Best
Rock Album, Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Rock
Song. Green Day is currently touring Australia and New Zealand.
