Rocksmith 2014 DLC 10/26/2015 – Spooktacular Singles Pack

MI0003120731_full

Greetings Rocksmith Ghouls and Ghosts!

This week’s Spoooooky DLC contains two new additions to Rocksmith 2014 and two singles from previous artists! Let’s take a look at what we’re getting in advance of the spookiest night of the year!

We start off with those scary, evil Canadians and their band Billy Talent! They bring, from 2009’s Billy Talent III, the song Devil on My Shoulder (not to be confused with the similarly titled Devil in a Midnight Mass, which was released as part of the first Billy Talent pack)! Plus, this is as close as we’re probably going to get to Led Zeppelin.

Now we head south towards Los Angeles and meet up with Danny Elfman and Oingo Boingo. As New Wave is a criminally under-represented genre in Rocksmith, it’s always great to see more of it come to the game. This week it comes to us in the form of the title track from their 1985 album, it’s Dead Man’s Party!

Next, we go across the Atlantic where we meet the ULTIMATE metal band! Yes, Motörhead return to Rocksmith. The NWOBHM legends first appeared in the Classic Riff Singles week with the legendary track Ace of Spades. This week, the equally amazing Killed by Death joins the lineup. While it originally appeared on 1984’s No Remorse, it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that we could be receiving the 2008 re-record that was done for Rock Band given that’s what we got for Ace of Spades.

We stay in Europe for our final artist, moving East as we go to The Netherlands. It’s not quite making it’s rhythm game debut, but the original, 6 minute masterpiece is! It’s one of the most requested songs in rhythm game history! It’s guaranteed to be a workout for all your fingers! It’s the first yodelling song in the game! From 1971’s Moving Waves it’s none other than Hocus Pocus by Focus!

Spooktacular Singles – $9.99 / Steam

 

So tell us, are you filling your bag with these treats, or are you leaving the lights off and pretending you’re not home? Let us know in the comments!

Sorry guys but the guitar leads in any candlebox or kings of Leon songs r 50x better than the last 3-4 weeks of shit that has been put out… And you all know it???

Did you just compare Candlebox to Focus? No, just no.

lol they’re an okay band but certainly not very fun on lead. The fact is we all get what we want sometimes and sometimes we don’t… I wouldn’t want them to release kings of leon or candlebox because candleboxsucks and kings of leon are below aveage imo but for the people who want it I’d be happy for them.. it’s called being mature, ever heard of it?

Secret Squirrel

I’m sorry, but a Candlebox pack is seriously never going to happen. They definitely will never get a pack, but honestly, I doubt they’d even get a single in a mix pack. Kings of Leon is probable, but Candlebox isn’t. They just don’t have the necessary fan base to be considered. Let it go.

I get it. There’s a lot of lesser-name bands out there I’d love to see get a pack like Propagandhi, Man or Astroman?, Kaki King, Red Fang, Skeletonwitch, and dozens of others, but I’ve accepted these probably won’t ever happen. Bands need a certain amount of clout to be considered for DLC and Candlebox just doesn’t have it. Learn how to be realistic with your expectations.

thequickmind
Guest

I don’t know, I’ve certainly requested a fair number of songs from Candlebox(as well as Propagandhi, Skeletonwitch, and numerous others), but whenever I turn on the radio(which is very rare), but Far Behind is almost always on. That song still gets a ton of radio airplay and is very popular. I don’t think its out of the realm of possibility to see it in the game.

Candlebox was actually ALMOST in Guitar Hero

Why’d you have to go and show us that link Elliott? Getting peoples’ hopes up like that. Now we’re going to have to keep listening to PJ-10 compare every single new DLC to Candlebox every week for probsbly 3 more years while we wait for the Candlebox pack to finally come out.

Ok. That Billy Talent is some psycho stuff. Loved it. Motörhead fun track. Oingo Boingo is hmmm, talented in an I don’t get it kinda way. Focus is the same as Oingo. About that Cult! Yeah Blue, I think Joy, love removal machine, little devil, and firewoman would be a good start.

Chloe

I love Rocksmith but it really does elude me as to why the Cult haven’t appeared yet…

You know, after watching the vids, I went ahead and bought Oingo Boingo and Focus. I kind of wish I had gotten Billy Talent, too, as it looks fun per the video. I did pick up The Cars pack (why did I wait so long to buy this?) and a Cure song I had overlooked to go with the New Wave feel I was having.

Also, if you’re feeling like this pack isn’t for you (your prerogative), I had an idea for a massive, Halloween Pack from existing DLC. This was just pulled from songs on my wishlist:

“Zombie”,
“Frankenstein”,
“In the Hall of the Mountain King” (Bachsmith),
Steppenwolf’s “Born To Be Wild”,
“Burnin’ For You”,
“Godzilla”,
“Fear of the Dark”,
“2 Minutes to Midnight”,
“Cowboys From Hell”, and
“Rainbow in the Dark”.
Vampire Weekend?

I had a chance to play through all of the songs last night and have to say that they were all really fun. ‘Devil on My Shoulder’ has a really great riff and a pretty fun solo. I wasn’t that familiar with their stuff before, but this song was good. I think I want to check out their other pack now. The Focus song is fun too, another good riff, followed by repeated solos. The Motorhead song is pretty straightforward but a solid rock song, nonetheless. But the song that stole the show for me was ‘Dead Man’s Party.’ I admit I did scoff a little when I saw that it was announced, but it is actually a really fun song. It was complex enough that I didn’t get bored and has a really great beat. I had fun with every song here, even if they weren’t songs I requested or even listen to outside of the game. But maybe I will now.

Havent played killed by death yet but agree with you on the others! Pick up Billy talents pack, plenty of interesting chords to learn and the riffs for devil in a midnight mass and vicking death march are some of my favorites!

Irony of ironies. A series of post to express ones opinions and those who like the pack complain about the whiners. Those who don’t like the pack are expressing their opinion which is the WHOLE point of this exercise. Whining about whiners is kind of ironic when the whiners are actually just expressing how they feel about this pack. I am only pointing out the obvious. If you don’t want opinions don’t go where they are solicited and demand silence out of those who disagree. Yes I am grinning as I say this. People got upset that I made fun of a band. They made fun of my band. Awesome. I like some music that some people hate. I don’t wanna call them names but I don’t have to like KISS but I know they belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. So. I am friends with a KISS fan. Not as smart as other fans I know, but he can drink like an f’in pirate. So there ya go.

bluecharm
Guest
bluecharm

I wanted to say that but I am a KISS fan so was drunk & struggling to string a sentence together -- point is if your passionate about music you should be getting angry and expressing that when your sences are subject to music you basically think is shit! I take a look on here each tuesday morning (to normally be dissapointed) & if i don’t like whats on offer then I am going to express that, its not directed to anybody here because nobody’s opinion here is any relevance to me -- its to express my distain towards RS for trying to pull a fast one attempting to convince me that what they have decided for the weeks dlc was from players requests pffft. oh yeah -- as usual I requested THE CULT for the following week please.

danamrich
Guest

“Pull a fast one”? “Trying to convince you”? Neither of these phrases makes sense based on the reality of the situation.

The DLC process has been explained a few times before, but if you missed it, we use a mix of user requests and the team’s own criteria to seek licenses, and then we determine what songs go into the release schedule. Many times, in artist packs, the songs that appear are the ones most requested by the fans for that artist. In mixed packs like this, we get to make editorial calls, but these tracks were requested too.

So, I’m not sure where you got the these ideas of deception, since the fact that the people who make the game are also making decisions about the content that goes into the game — with strong input from the fans via the request app — is not a secret nor is it misleading. I think you’re bringing some sort of weird mistrust to the situation that does not apply. Nobody’s trying to mess with your head.

As for “give me this band next week,” that’s not how it works either — even if you say please. 🙂 If you have not seen our explanations of the DLC process, check bit.ly/rsprocess and you’ll get a better perspective on things.

“editorial calls”, do these fine folks have an average age of 50 plus by chance? For the year, I’d say the 70’s and below, low end one hit wonder band goal has been achieved.

Edit : my comment if for dan or anyone that works at ubi or rocksmith. you dont lie when you say that almost ( i cant say all for me its a total lie to myself , but it got some chance to be true and i really dont like that fact ) all song from special pack to band pack are choose by public request??!!! that says to me that public taste for music is awfully bad , low or i really don t connect with it , it would be really really fun and a big act of candidness if rocksmith or ubisof would give us the stats about every artist song that are request and every selling stats for those pack and song , ireally would like to know if its true that september dlc got alot of buying ( because it was requested ! ) i got an email addres i can sign every fckin paper about not divulging any thing that s write if you want to hide it from us (if you or they re not hiding something from us like band with cheaper demand are put before other that could sell way m,ore but cost more at first but you dont want to take the risk to invest for money in return and trying to take band like i said with lower contrat that s gonna make you more money faster ( if that it s the case , im pretty sure the last years stats musnt be encouraging ) i got an email account send it right there ill take it for myself just to have a clear conscience and if request a song really work……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………. then i should try like i did before over 10 times a day ( just because… Read more »

yes but did they buy that scrap or just asking for it and not buy it , that would make me rage alot more , knowing some ask for shit and it doesnt sell , while we can get way , way better in term of musicality or guitar fun track , if i want to play scrap like kings of leon , i go buy a 40 oz of vodka drink it whole inside an hour , making rule like jam , but onlky use one note at a time ..it still sounds like crap but sounds like im a golden god compare to kings of leon…

sorry for writting a book almost each time i wrote something like i said ime and time again i might care too much about this game and want it to be perfect or at least have good or beast track , and i think i wait really to llong to have something , i think it will be possible to have more track or better one each weeks , somewhere , someone isnt doing his job or telling the truth thats all im saying

Maxime Côté
Guest
Maxime Côté

they ve missed something by not putting the live version of focus i never hard that orignal ( if it is ) version of it always listen to the live one and god that was freaking good this one missed something she s ok but its like having cereal without milk , motorhead track i kinda fun , oingo i didnt play it , dvil on my shoulder could be fun be maybe not to play twice in a row or 4-5 time a week still a good song but..

pluggyboy
Guest

I love RS -- it’s a great product. But what gets me is when a band appears, like Oingo Boingo, and it sounded on the stream like you were saying it’s in the game because you wanted it and hey bonus, a few others requested it too. That’s your prerogative, you work with Ubi. There was a pack recently where you didn’t know the band, so it works both ways.

A Halloween pack without more Alice Cooper seems like a wrong move. I will pass on another pack, and use Songster, Guitar Pro, etc. instead.

There was a time where I bought a pack just to support RS, but I can’t afford that anymore.

Oh and btw most of the things I write are intended to extract a chuckle not anger. I really hate when I read apparent anger on here. I think people worry a bit too much about one week or one month of lame dlc. We will get something good. We have to, or did rock band lock down exclusives on licensing? Just wondering. Either way, none of us is going to change the schedule. They are doing what corporations do…blowing off the opinions of the customers.

thequickmind

Went ahead and bought the whole pack. There’s a great variety here and all of the songs look fun, even if I’m not a Motorhead fan.

My ears hear the music. They tell me if I want to listen again or not. These inform my opinion. It is how I function in the world and form judgements. These judgements are my opinion. Thank God my opinion isn’t your opinion or there would be a TON of unemployed musicians, actors, writers, and politicians. Enjoy your opinion and don’t assume that if I share mine that it is ill informed. Our economy depends on my disagreeing with you on a great many things. Oorah!

Wow, lots of hate on this pack! I have been waiting a long time for another motorhead tune and would welcome any more, We Are The Road Crew anyone? Hocus Pocus has some great guitar in between the yodeling bits and the other 2 are fun to play. Definitely a breath of fresh air after benjamin and all time low. I must admit I was hoping to see Season of the Witch, but good stuff regardless. Happy this week!

I like these theme pack ideas. They all fit the theme and cover a variety of genres. What more can you ask for, if you live in the real word of schmarmy agents and aloof “artists” hell bent on getting top dollar for, or restricting the crap out of, licensing?

I can’t say any of these picks will sail to the top of my already-lengthy Steam wishlist, but I will probably get the Focus and Oingo Boingo songs in the next month or so. Danny Elfman makes some creepy faces, though. I think it’s perfect having him in a Halloween pack!

Luke

are they running out of licensing options?

WonderWaage

What an ill-informed comment that is. This week has one of the biggest metal acts of all time: Motorhead. This week features a band that almost doesn’t license their music for anything: Billy Talent. It features a rhythm game debut by a legendary track in Hocus Pocus. And it also features music from a band fronted by the legendary and UNBELIEVABLY talented Danny Elfman in Oingo Boingo.

What a tremendously dumb comment, I am completely flabbergasted by it actually.

I was going to figure out some leads I could play to jam along with the yodeling, flute and whistling solos in Hocus Pocus. Now it looks like I don’t have to bother. What a great track! A lot of the added leads even match what I was imaging in my head. 10/10, so much fun!

The other tracks are good, but passable for me. I’m trying not to buy songs anymore unless I love them. I’ve already got way too much DLC.

1 more post and I will shut up…. I have read almost every post here and also on reddit when Dan posts his clues. I know that some of these bands don’t want to do Rocksmith, but go at it in a different way…. Lets take Pink Floyd…. (Please) David Gilmour has more money than God…. But he is also very charitable, Why not charge $20.00 for Comfortably numb…. I for one would pay that much, possibly even more for that one song!!!! Give the money to charity…. Or lets take Led Zeppelin. I work in a business that deals with many people every day. About a week ago I saw a 15 year old kid in my office with a Led zeppelin concert t-shirt on, and I said yeah right your into that because of your parents…. And he said no…. All my friends are into that type of music, hip hop is boring, in rock at least the musicians play instruments instead of a turntable. Anyway approach them with that type of stance look there are all these kids out there, that have never been to see you, have just started to get into your music, just think of the millions of new listeners you could get if some of these kids learned to play your music and then added your music to parties where their bands play….. Charge more for the “Premium bands” I think you might be surprised how many would be willing to pay more for the top 40 requested….

sour grapes
Guest
sour grapes

this is a fantastic idea… i’m so sick of the back burner stuff that’s coming out… each week should have a premium track… for a premium price (you bet, i’d pay it)… a standard track… and a “back burner” type track that will have limited appeal.

Phooey
Guest
Phooey

While I totally get your approach, i think it’s more than just a money issue. In the instance of David Gilmour -- I believe he thinks his music a type of art and that using it in a game (I know RS is not a game but the perception could be argued) is not how he wants his music to be utilized. Consider the fact that Pink Floyd have not allowed licensing of their music for commercials or films{heck even the version of comfortably Numb for the departed is performed by someone else) and you start to see how they approach their work. Music to him is an artform and I really think he guards that.

In the event of Led Zepplin -- I just really don’t think it will happen. I think they are aware of the fact that there are kids getting into their music but take the stance they will find it with or without Rocksmith. Sucks, i know, but with an army of lawyers and labels, they simply may not be interested in the concept.

I mean, after all these years I really think that there are bands that are just not interested an at some point the dead horse has been beaten. I wouldn’t be surprised if it came down to a purist approach of “if you want to learn my music, learn to read tab or sheet music” which, ultimately, isn’t a bad idea if you want to unlock the largest amount of content.

I truly believe some bands just are not interested and there is nothing anyone can do to change their minds.

danamrich

I can confirm that some bands just are not interested and there is nothing anyone can do to change their minds.

We continue to ask, but some artists continue to say no thank you. It’s their artistic right to do so and we must respect it.

You’re contradicting yourself a little bit. You’re talking about how many people could get into new old music if it was on rocksmith, yet you seem pretty insistent on not trying out songs from artists you aren’t already interested in. Take a chance, you might be surprised on some of the groups you discover.

for myself, i listen to every track that rocksmith puts up for dlc…and while i have grabbed a track here and there that i was previously unfamiliar with, it’s just not that often… fact is, i’m getting less and less excited about tuesdays… it’s ok… i’ve got plenty of stuff to work on… and there is plenty of dlc that i do like and have yet to purchase…

And This is the first time I have posted, but really guys…. I want to play something that is fun, and I understand that you want to put in other types of songs, but if your game is called Rocksmith…. Rock should be the focus!!!! your top 40 songs…. VAN HALEN, OZZY, BLACK SABBATH, ZZ TOP, MOTLEY CRUE, I know it costs a fortune to pay royalties…. but again read my previous post…. Rock doesn’t sell anymore!!!!! IF you put this on Rocksmith it would help them sell records again approach these guys and their management that way…. With downloading making those same bands pennies for each song, give the bands more money per DLC….. IT might even get them more sales of their albums…. I want to be excited again on Tuesdays….. I’m Begging!!!!

I have spent a ton of money in downloads over the last year but it seems as if the last few months…. this game should be called alternative, or pop-punk smith instead of rock….. why don’t you approach the “Rock-Gods” with the offer…. Hey dudes your records don’t sell anymore…. Our downloads will…. We should have seen Black Sabbath for Halloween or Alice Cooper “Feed my Frankenstein…. What has happened to the top 40 requested songs???? Kiss was great…. Thats rock Come on Guys…. I would assume you could figure out that the top 40 would bring you tons more money!!!!!

Dude they released a pack you said was good literally 2 weeks ago. Chill out with the doomsday stuff. And if you can’t play Strutter, Love Gun and God of Thunder perfectly and off the top of your head yet, you haven’t played them enough. So go practice those. And if you can play it perfectly, I’d like to see a video of it 😛

Peter Jewell
Guest
Peter Jewell

your an idiot I am asking for more…. Actually I could play that before it came out…. God OF THUNDER…. IM looking for stuff I can’t play like VH, and better more Halloween based songs…. Dead mans party is really the only “True Halloween song” My point was that “Rocksmith” again emphasis on Rock is not happening lately…… and I do understand putting other types of music in, I also love the Joe Bonnamassa…. I just saw him in concert at red Rocks less than 3 months ago….and no I can’t play that…. BUT when was the last time they released a top 40 request…… That is my point!!!!

2 out 4 is not bad but It could definitely be better, billy talent was a bad choice for this pack after the awful pop punk we got last week. It is kind of hard to wash the taste of awful pop punk with more pop punk, even if billy talent is better. oingo boingo was an awful choice as well. Rocksmith needs to step it up on dlc, They started slipping big time with brand new and all time low song packs and kind of came back with kiss. This week is meh at best but miles above last week.

Maybe next month, we can live in hope. Sighs 🙁

I like how the they do more dancing with the guitars, then they do playing in the OB vid.

Decent songs, but I was really hoping to see I’ve Put a Spell on You (CCR), Time Warp from TRHPS, or one of the rock versions of the songs from Nightmare Before Christmas all of those bands did a few years back.

The Billy Talent and Focus riffs are sweet but again with the annoying vocals. Motorhead…meh idk wtf that 80s synth shit is. Out of all the amazing Halloweenish songs, this is what we get? The kiss pack would’ve made more sense. I hope ubi is saving their cash up for something big.

I’m really happy to see that song appear as I was hoping it was going to be in the song pack for Billy Talent released on Canada Day.

It’s a really great riffy song with a fun solo

I was definitely not expecting billy talent to randomly appear again, but I’ve been hoping for this song for a long time! Very happy 😀

Not sure how I feel about this pack yet, but I’ll check out the tracks for sure.

Not even the one Motorhead song can save this train wreck of a pack. Seems pretty clear that October has been the worst month of the year, so much lost opportunity here.

Killed By Death is an awesome Motorhead song.

It is an awesome song -- but I’m not sure about the recording they used here. It feels slower than the original Bronze recording, and Phil/Wurzel definitely sound off their game on the guitar solos.
Either way, it’s Motorhead -- I’ll pick it up and hope for a pure Motorhead pack one day (especially if they can license Bronze’s recording of Stay Clean! -- I’ve already requested it several times).

Much like “Ace Of Spades” it’s an 2008 re-record

I will pick up that oingo boingo track. The lead guitar sounds cool. The rest of the pack is pretty meh, got my hopes up for the time ward.

Oingo Boingo at long last. Seeing that made my week. Hope it sells well and I’ll keep praying to the Rocksmith gods for a pack.

This is like the Libertines for the 4th of July to me. Oh well, maybe next week.

So it’s a bunch of songs that are fun on both rhythm and lead? Cool

Got ’em.

Hocus Pocus made it to a playlist I guess. I will probably pick that one up at some point. The others might be fun for some, I was just really hoping for something else. Oh well, maybe next week.

Not going to lie, I don’t recognise a single song out of this pack.
