  • Rock Band not Releasing Nirvana’s Biggest Hits

    Posted on October 21st, 2008 Shawn No comments

    Well, it’s a year in the making. The rumors, stories, and myths of Nevermind actually showing up on Rock Band are over, well somewhat.

    As of today, we now have all but three tracks available for DLC. “Which 3 are missing?”, you ask. Only the three big hits: Smells Like Teen Spirit, Lithium, and Come As You Are.

    Here’s what we have learned, through somewhat official channels. The communications folks at Harmonix have stated the reason for the three missing tracks.

    1. Come As You Are and Lithium are going to be paired up in the near future with Heart Shaped Box (from In Utero) for a DLC 3-pack.
    2. Now, the supposed bad news. Looks like the master tracks for Smells Like Teen Spirit are “missing” (i.e. stolen, lost, or destroyed).

    For the track pack, “Ok that’s cool, but really should have been released at the same time as the rest of the album”, in my opinion. For Teen Spirit, really? Do you believe this story? I like some of the theories going around, like Courtney Love has them stashed somewhere (complements of Maki), or that Harmonix is holding out for Rock Band 3.

    What say you?

    In the meantime, get ready for some Nirvana bliss, with today’s DLC. Pick all 7 tracks up on Rock Band DLC today for $10.99 (880 Microsoft Points) or $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points) per track.

    • If they’re holding out for RB3, that would be the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of. Not buying the lost, stolen, destroyed thing, but even if they were, you mean there’s no way to get that song in the game without the masters. I’m by no means an audiophile, but it seems to me that if they really wanted to, there’s software out there that could take out separate channels and make this happen.

      The separate 3-pack is pretty lame especially since Heart Shaped Box is a GH2 song (been there done that). This screams of Courtney Love or the label trying to squeeze every last cent out of Nirvana tracks on RB.

      Whatever, I’ll just move on to the next songs in my wishlist.

    • Will you be picking up an DLC this week? Did you pick up any Crue from last week? The last thing I bought was the entire Chili Peppers BSSM stuff, but plan to pick up the Nirvana stuff tonight.
