Rock Band Wii Owners Get Seven
Tracks from Nirvana

Harmonix and MTV Games announced
today the addition of seven tracks from alternative grunge band Nirvana to the
Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content for Wii.

The lineup includes seven master
recordings from Nirvana’s 1991 album Nevermind including “Breed,” “Lounge Act,”
“On a Plain,” “Polly,” “Something in the Way,” “Stay Away,” and “Territorial
Pissings.” These tracks join “In Bloom” from the original Rock Band soundtrack
and “Drain You” featured on the Rock Band 2 soundtrack to make for a total of
nine Nirvana songs available in the Rock Band music catalog available to Wii
owners.

This week’s offering comes from the
Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content already released to owners
of Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3. Wii fans can expect a rollout of the previously
released downloadable content until the entire back catalogue of more than 570
songs is available. In addition, the regularly scheduled future DLC releases for
Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 system will also be available for Rock Band 2 Wii
owners soon.
