Rockband adds Nirvana and Foo Fighters

New Nirvana and Foo Fighters are coming to Rock Band on November 3rd!  With hit tracks from Nirvana such as “about a girl”, “Blew” and “School” plus hit songs from Foo Fighters “Best of you”, “The Pretender”, “Wheels” and “Word Forward” it takes me back to Renaissance times of the 90′s when grung rock was born.  We need more music from bands in the 90′s on Rockband such as Stone temple Pilots, Sound Garden, Green day, Perl Jam and Smashing Pumpkins (not the new Billy Coragan hack band).  at 1.5 EUR per song and 3.99 to 5.29 Eur per “pack” this is a RockBand release im looking forward to.
