NFC News New Nirvana Rock Band video game tracks
Exciting news for those of you out there that enjoy Rock Band, the videogame: this Tuesday, expect to see some Nirvana and Foo Fighters to add to your repertoire! The songs included are as follows:

Nirvana: About A Girl, Blew and School (all from Bleach)

Foo Fighters: Best Of You, The Pretender, Wheels and Word Forward (all from their new Greatest Hits album)

There's also a Joan Jett song too, for the record, but you can find all that information here!

Interesting word of note to you all: Bleach rereleased, Foo Fighters greatest hits comp, and now this! All set to be released on November 3rd. Strangely reminiscent of when Dave Grohl was on Queens of the Stone Age's Songs For The Deaf, that Nirvana compilation was released and One By One was released by the Foo Fighters 4 years ago? Either way, circle November 3rd on your calendars, if you haven't by now!

    NFC News Novoselic posts blog about Reading Festival
    Krist Novoselic recently wrote a wonderful blog post about the setup (and doubt) of the Reading Festival 1992 show. You can read it here, as well as some articles reviewing new music (including former tourmates, Pearl Jam - Backspacer).

    One of the more interesting articles, however, is the posting of an MP3 from the elusive Melvana show (the song is Sacrifice). That old (2 years old) article can be found right over here.

    Hope you enjoy the photo of Krist and the funky hat! :)
