What you deserve: Four NIN tracks for Rock Band 3

One again, Harmonix reminds me how old I am by releasing a four pack of songs from a “classic” album, Nine Inch Nail’s Pretty Hate Machine. It did not, as I want to recall, come out a few years ago. It came out in 1989; I purchased it on a cassette, and later in a giant cardboard box housing a CD jewel case.

  • “Terrible Lie”
  • “Head Like a Hole”
  • “Sanctified”
  • “The Only Time”

All tracks are $1.99/160 MS Points/200 Wii Points a piece, of you can buy the whole set for $6.99/560 MS Points/700 Wii Points. “Head Like A Hole” is eligible for a Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade; that’ll cost you an extra 99 cents.

I’ve always preferred Broken, myself, and I haven’t listen to Pretty Hate Machine in its entirety in 15 years. That said, consider me Microsoft points already spent.

As a bonus, some “legacy” Rock Band tracks are being given the Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade options. Check out what’s what below, each of which will cost you 99 cents to upgrade.

  • Blink 182 – “Dammit”
  • Boston – “More Than A Feeling”
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Bad Moon Rising”
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival – “Fortunate Son (Original Version)”
  • Eve 6 – “Inside Out”
  • The James Gang – “Funk #49″
  • The Knack – “My Sharona (Cover Version)”
  • Lynyrd Skynyrd – “Simple Man”
  • Metallica – “…And Justice for All”
  • The Offspring – “Self Esteem”
  • Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble – “Pride and Joy”
