Rock Band's First Downloadable Album: Judas Priest

Finally making good on its pre-launch promise Harmonix is set to release the first full album download for "Rock Band". The first title coming next week will be Judas Priest's classic Screaming for Vengeance which features the band's hit "You've Got Another Thing Comin'" and nine other tracks, will cost $15, with individual songs from the album going for $2 each, MTV said.

"Rock Band" has long promised full albums, and the Judas Priest album will be followed in May by the self-titled debut album of 1980s rockers The Cars, and in June with "Doolittle" from alternative band The Pixies.

Originally Harmonix and MTV Games promised that duet Rock Band would feature full downloadable albums, with The Who's "Who's Next" and possibly even Nirvana's "Nevermind". However, these albums were conspicuously absent from the game's launch lineup of downloadable content, and months passed with no word of when they would finally arrive.

When asked about the other two albums Alex Rigopulos, co-founder of MTV-owned development studio Harmoni said "Who's Next" is still caught up in the process of a record company delivering the master music assets to the game developer. And what of Nirvana's Nevermind? Rigopulos said that one is just a rumor.
