Eagles, Nirvana, Pumpkins, and free reggae pack coming to Guitar Hero this month

8:46 AM on 12.03.2008 // Nick Chester

Activision is continuing its relatively solid Guitar Hero World Tour downloadable content assault this month, starting tomorrow (December 4) with three Smashing Pumpkins tracks. The previously announced track pack will include "1979," "Everlasting Gaze," and their new single, "G.L.O.W." 

Also announced is a surprising set of Nirvana tracks that will be available on December 11. The band's "last single" (you know, the B-side that Courtney Love was holding onto for dear life after Kurt Cobain's death?), "You Know You're Right," will join "Negative Creep" and "Sliver."

If you were excited about the inclusion of the Eagles' rock classic "Hotel California" in World Tour, you'd better sit down. There's more Eagles on the way on December 18! "One of These Nights," "Life in the Fast Lane," and "Frail Grasp on the Big Picture" from that 93-disc album they released in 2007. (OK, it was only two discs.)

All of this stuff you'll have to pay for, and it's standard World Tour DLC pricing (info in press release after the jump ... there's just too many damned variables to list. It's all available on the Wii, 360, and PS3). But if you're looking for something free, Activision will be releasing "The Reggae Rock Track Pack," which includes Slightly Stoopid's "Jimi," and Pepper and Expendables' "Sacrifice." 

We've been talking about it for over a year, so I know you guys are spending cash on Rock Band DLC. But who's been keeping up with World Tour? (I'll start: I bought "Jesse's Girl" to test out the in-game store.) 

The Eagles, Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins And Others Set to Rock Guitar Hero(R) World Tour With Downloadable Content in December

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec 03, 2008 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ --

Featuring the stylistic melodies of Kurt Cobain, Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the pioneers of alternative rock, Nirvana, make their Guitar Hero(R) downloadable content debut with the Nirvana Track Pack. Featuring the final single released by the band, "You Know You're Right," along with "Negative Creep," off the band's debut album Bleach, and the smash hit "Sliver," the Nirvana Track Pack will be available for Guitar Hero World Tour on December 11th.

After delivering the timeless rock ballad "Hotel California" to the on-disc set list of Guitar Hero World Tour, The Eagles will thrill the Guitar Hero audience once again on December 18th with three chart topping hits. From the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductees' seventh studio album and first in 28 years, Long Road Out of Eden, "Frail Grasp on the Big Picture" is joined by two classic tracks that climbed to the top of the Billboard's Hot 100, "One of These Nights" and "Life in the Fast Lane."

Looks like I'm not gonna be able to 100% Tearaway Unfolded until Monday at the least. I'm definitely writing about it this weekend and am trying my hardest to get my screenshots off of my PS4 (especially hard as I don't do social media anymore)

Shakedown Hawaii is giving me good GTA vibes. I missed the topdown GTA games when they were a thing. I have to decide what platform to get it for since it's coming to 3DS/Vita/PS4/PC (probably the Vita version for moi).

Hey Dreamweaver? If you think your art sucks, you should have a look at my magnum opus. It's of Cloud from the popular game, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest.

I never thought this would happen, but here I am. all of my 700+ pokemon gone in one day. My cart stopped working and there's nothing I can do. I quit, you can't just rebuild all that. Time to find something else.

Does anyone know how to get PS4 screenshots onto a PC without needing a flash drive? I don't have a spare.

This is an example of how bad my drawings are. I honestly think drawing stick figures would've been easier on the eyes. :( The worst thing about this image is that this was made after I got BETTER. Trust me, you don't want to see my earlier stuff. T^T

Back in tip-top shape guys, feel waaaaay better than I have done these past few weeks. Plus my voice sounds slightly raspy now, meaning my Batman impression has been upgraded. Apologies to Gaj and Solar the most, my male-up kisses go to you: Xxxxxx

Wait... Is that...? Could it be...? It IS! Gravity Rush's Kat has taken a break from rushing and graviting to sacrifice some souls in Soul Sacrifice Delta! Which isn't even going for $8 on the PS Store right now! What a steal!

Unpopular opinion time: I not only consider Kanye West to be one of my favorite rappers of all-time — yes, I'm being serious — but he's one of the very few people in the world whom I'd consider to be a role model. I truly wish he would notice me one d
