Gaming Music Nintendo

Harmonix and MTV Games announced today the addition of six new tracks to the Rock Band Music Store catalog of downloadable content for Wii. The lineup features four tracks from classic rock band Boston including “Hitch a Ride,” “Peace of Mind,” “Smokin'” and “Something About You.”

In addition to the Boston tracks, Rock Band 2 Wii fans will also gain access to”Hanging on the Telephone” by Blondie and “Dirty Little Secret” from All-American Rejects.

All six tracks are part of 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 550 songs is available. In addition, the regularly scheduled future DLC releases for Xbox 360 and PS3 system will also be available for Rock Band 2 Wii owners soon.

All tracks are original master recordings and cost 200 Wii Points, or $2, per track. To download them, users must purchase Wii Points through the Wii Shop Channel and go to the in-game Rock Band 2 Music Store.
