We report spontaneous narrow band oscillations in the high field Wigner solid. These oscillations are similar to the recently seen and yet unexplained oscillations in the reentrant integer quantum Hall states. The current-voltage characteristic has a region of negative differential resistance in the current biased setup and it is hysteretic in the voltage biased setup. As a consequence of the unusual breakdown, the oscillations in the Wigner solid are of the relaxation type.
