Wii Rock Band 2 Gets 25 New Tracks

Owners of the Wii version of Rock Band 2 will have some hard decisions to make tomorrow, as more than two dozen new tracks arrive on the title's in-game store.

A huge batch of Wii-specific updates hit Rock Band 2 tomorrow, from Alien Ant Farm to the Buzzcocks to T-Rex. A mix of both new and old arrives, including a half-dozen from The Grateful Dead.
