Increasing its library of local music from around the world this month, Guitar Hero World Tour is offering new three-song Track Packs of downloadable content from European bands including Germany’s Sportfreunde Stiller, France’s BB Brunes and Spain’s Fito Y Fitipaldis.

Following their home country’s 2006 World Cup elimination, German rock band Sportfreunde Stiller re-wrote their chart-topping hit “’54, ’74, ’90, 2006” in anticipation of a 2010 championship, re-titled it “’54, ’74, ’90, 2010” and are bringing it to Guitar Hero World Tour as part of a three song Track Pack available today. Also included in the pack and further expanding the global audience are Italian rock band Negrita with “Mama Mae” and French rock band BB Brunes with “Dis Moi.”

Swedish rock bands, the Backyard Babies, whose Guitar Her® III: Legends of Rock on-disc track “Minus Celsius” saw an increase in digital audio downloads after appearing in the game, are building on the success for an encore with “Degenerated” off their 2008 self-titled album. Joining the Backyard Babies in the second three-song Track Pack are Spanish rockers Fito Y Fitipaldis with “Por La Boca Vive El Pez” and Netherlands’ Di-Rect with “Johnny.”

The two Track Packs will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 for 440 Microsoft Points and on the PlayStation Store for £4.79. The songs in each Track Pack will be released as downloadable singles for Xbox 360 for 160 Microsoft Points, PS3 for £1.59 and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection for Wii for 200 Wii Points.
