Speculation: The Libertines are coming to Rocksmith

Happy 4th of July Rocksmith fans!

If you fine United Statesians feel like checking your phone or computer during your BBQ we have some news about next week’s Rocksmith 2014 DLC!

Since today is a holiday for @UbisoftStudioSF, the clue for Tuesday’s DLC was posted a day early. It’s a good thing because this one was a bit tricky.

Dan Amrich explains:

Yes, it was a visual/homophone pun. Source images for Watt and Katydid. I had a fun helper clue in case nobody spotted it as a katydid, but I didn’t have to use it. 

But what of the “stripey” layer of the image? What does it mean? It is not random and it has relevance; it will help confirm the band. You have the answer, but you haven’t solved the whole puzzle. 

“What Katie Did” is one of three Libertines songs in next week’s DLC, all of which are tuned to E Standard.

Who are The Libertines? Well for one thing I noticed Paul Cross (@CrossieRS) had retweeted this on June 28th (Hey that’s my birthday!).

The Libertines are an English  band that formed in London, England in 1999 and disbanded in 2004. They reformed in 2010 to play the Reading and Leeds festivals. The band released two full-length LPs, both produced by Mick Jones of The Clash. Centered around the song-writing partnership and chemistry between Peter Doherty (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Carl Barât (vocals/lead guitar), while backed by John Hassall (bass) and Gary Powell (drums), the band was one of the cornerstones of the English independent scene in the early 2000’s.


So we already know one song…

Judging by popularity the other two songs should be this

and this

Quite a contrast compared to last week! Are you into post-britpop? Let us know.
