Harmonix and MTV Games announced this week 11 new tracks coming today to the Rock Band Music Store catalogue of downloadable content for Nintendo Wii, including Journey’s definitive power ballad “Don’t Stop Believing.”

This week’s music lineup also includes tracks from American hard rock band Foo Fighters, British alternative band Oasis and three family-friendly tracks from the favorite pineapple dweller, SpongeBob SquarePants.

Described by Allmusic as “one of the best opening keyboard riffs in rock,” Journey’s smash 1981 hit “Don’t Stop Believing” will be released for download in the Wii Rock Band Music Store this week. “Don’t Stop Believing” is one of the most referenced rock songs in popular culture, receiving prominent placement in the 2007 series finale of The Sopranos.

Pat Benatar’s classic single “Heartbreaker” from the In the Heat of the Night album (1979) will also be available for download along with The Von Bondies signature hit “C’Mon C’Mon” from their debut album Pawn Shoppe Heart (2004). In addition, the content update will also include the 2008 single “Geraldine” from Scottish alternative band Glasvegas.

Wii fans will also be able to purchase and download three tracks from Nickelodeon sensation SpongeBob SquarePants including “I Can’t Keep My Eyes Off of You,” “The Best Day Ever” and “Where’s Gary?” from the 2006 album SpongeBob SquarePants: The Best Day Ever.

As previously announced, the above tracks from Journey, Pat Benatar, The Von Bondies, Glasvegas and SpongeBob SquarePants were released last week to owners of Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system.

This week’s Wii Rock Band Music Store update also features four back catalogue tracks from the Rock Band music library including three tracks from the Foo Fighters. “DOA” is from the band’s fifth album In Your Honor (2005), “This is a Call” is the first track of Foo Fighters’ self-titled debut album (1995), and “Times Like These” is the second single issued from the band’s Grammy award-winning fourth album One by One (2002). In addition, Rock Band will also deliver more from Oasis with “Rock ‘n’ Roll Star” featured on the band’s seminal debut album Definitely Maybe (1994).
