Song Speculation: Rocksmith takes another trip back to the 60’s


Greetings, Rocksmith fans!

Looks like Rocksmith will be taking yet another trip back to that good old era of cherished classic rock, the 1960’s!

@UbiParadise posted the clue earlier today, let’s have a look-see:

It’s the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, CaliforniaSince it’s a GIF, the password HaightAshbury revealed this:

Each snippet is a scene from the movies Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Platoon, Supernatural, and The Game. Each scene has the song White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane playing in the background:

Jason confirms it’s a mix 3-pack of artists from the 1960’s, with a second hint coming sometime this weekend :-O

What could the other artists be? The authors at The Riff Repeater have a few ideas:

Elliott’s Pick: Simon & Garfunkel – Mrs. Robinson

Would be cool to get some 60’s Folk music from them in the game, and yes… I’d rather have this song than Sound of Silence.

Daniel’s Pick: The Guess Who – Undun

As a Clevelander (#allin216), two radio stations have been in regular rotation on the car radio for many years: Classic Rock 98.5 and 107.3 The Wave (the Cleveland Jazz Fusion/Smooth Jazz Station). As such, I am one major sucker for Jazz Fusion, and this popular track from 1969 by the Guess Who comes pretty darn close to fulfilling a dream I’ve had of finally having Jazz guitar on Rocksmith. Just listen to those chords and that bassline.

Oscar’s Pick: The Lovin’ Spoonful – Summer in the City

It’s no secret how big of a fan I am of The Lovin’ Spoonful, and this sweltering hot summer is the perfect time to bring arguably their most well-known song to the game. It’s a classic 60s rock song with some great tones and it’d be the perfect way to get one of the best groups ever in a rhythm game at last.

Ted’s Pick: Buffalo Springfield – For What It’s Worth

Stop look, what’s that sound everybody wants this song in now
