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.)
