Speculation: Duran Duran are coming to Rocksmith!


Next week’s Rocksmith 2014 DLC looks like it’s going to come from one of my all time favourite groups. Yes, it’s the band my guitar teacher once described as “like Wham!, if Wham! didn’t suck”. That’s right, it’s Duran Duran!

Let’s see how this all started, shall we? Earlier today Dan posted this image:


It took a while, but it was finally put together in to this:


There were a plethora of guesses as to what this could be, so Dan posted another hint:

Here’s Dan explaining the hint.

So, it’s a 3 pack, there’s no Planet Earth (damn!) and nothing from their album Astronaut. With that in mind, here’s what my Duran Duran pack would look like!

The Reflex

Here we have one of Duran Duran’s biggest hits. Boasting a surprisingly good guitar part, this would be a fantastic addition to any rhythm game! Plus, it’s the only Duran Duran song to be featured in a Weird Al polka! Man I love the 80s.


Oh man, just look at that video! Look at the members of Duran Duran just hanging out on that yacht, perfect hair just blowing in the wind providing that perfect “yes, my hair is messy, but if you wish to do business I can still look very respectable” look! 1982 Simon Le Bon, why can’t I be you? And then there’s Andy Hamilton just playing sweet, sweet sax on a raft. Ooh yes.

A View to a Kill

Finally, we have something that combines two of my all time favourite things: Duran Duran and James Bond. Specifically the Roger Moore era, because it’s a well known fact that he’s the best Bond. While I’m not holding my breath for this one, because movie songs very rarely show up in games, having this song in here would officially bump this pack up to DLC of the year.

While it’s very likely that the pack will be the three songs that were featured in Rock Band (Rio, Hungry Like the Wolf, and Girls on Film), a man can dream, can’t he? We may even see a newer song, like Girl Panic. Of course, the clue could also be indicating Electric Barbarella

What are you hoping to see in the pack? Let us know in the comments!
