Rock Band DLC boxed for PS2, Wii

Track Pack Volume 1 arrives in stores July 15 with 20 songs for $30; artists include Boston, David Bowie, Weezer, and more.


From day one, downloadable content was a core focus for Harmonix's Rock Band. However, only the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game have supported downloadable content, much to the chagrin of those who purchased last year's PlayStation 2 version of the game, as well as those who plan to purchase the Wii edition when it launches next month.

However, the music cannot be stopped. Harmonix announced today that it is bringing downloadable content to the Wii and PS2 versions of Rock Band, just not in downloadable form. Instead, gamers will be able to buy a disc from retailers containing songs previously released as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PS3. The Rock Band Track Pack Volume 1 will include 20 master tracks from 20 different artists, and will retail for $29.99 when it launches July 15.

The full list of included tracks follows:

30 Seconds to Mars--"The Kill"
All American Rejects--"Move Along"
Blink – 182--"All the Small Things"
Boston--"More Than a Feeling"
David Bowie--"Moonage Daydream"
Faith No More--"We Care A Lot"
Grateful Dead--"Truckin'"
The Hives--"Die, All Right!"
KISS--"Calling Dr. Love"
Lynyrd Skynyrd--"Gimme' Three Steps"
Nine Inch Nails--"March of the Pigs"
Oasis--"Live Forever"
The Police--"Synchronicity II"
Queens of the Stone Age--"Little Sister"
Ramones--"Teenage Lobotomy"
Smashing Pumpkins--"Siva"
Stone Temple Pilots--"Interstate Love Song"
Weezer--"Buddy Holly"
Wolfmother--"Joker & the Thief"
