Rock Band Wii ‘bonus songs’ are totally underwhelming

Today, Harmonix has revealed the bonus tracks that will ship with the Wii version of Rock Band when it hits shelves this June.

  • “Dirty Little Secret” – The All-American Rejects
  • “Don’t Look Back in Anger” – Oasis
  • “Roam” – The B-52’s
  • “Rockaway Beach” – The Ramones
  • “Roxanne” – The Police

If these tracks look familiar, it’s because they have all be released as downloadable content for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of Rock Band. So not only does the Wii version ship “gimped” — no online play, no downloadable content, no true “Band World Tour” mode — but the bonuses Wii owners get aren’t really all that special. The good news is that the drums are white, though.

Harmonix could have at least tossed on some “timed exclusive” tracks on the disc, or at least thrown Wii owners some sort of a bone here. Even though they’re getting shafted in the price department, at least Europeans are rumored to be getting some unreleased bonus tracks in their games when it ships this May August year.
