Entire Nirvana album will be available for new game, "Rock Band"

During E3 MTV Games and Harmonix revealed plans to release weekly downloadable content for forthcoming rhythm action/music game Rock Band, and it now appears that will also include Nirvana's Nevermind.

According to reports, the classic rock album will be made available after the game launches at the end of the year.

Rock Band is like Guitar Hero on steroids, with axe wielding joined by vocals and drumming and letting players form full bands. It's due out on PS3 and Xbox 360 on November 20.

Meanwhile, mobile game publisher Gameloft is releasing Guitar Legend, which can be loosely described as being a Guitar Hero for mobile phones, with well-timed button-presses replacing plug-in axe accessories. Nirvana's 'Heart-Shaped Box' is one of the tracks included, along with Deep Purple's 'Smoke On The Water' and Iron Maiden's 'Run To The Hills'.
