Rocksmith 2014 DLC 11/03/2015 – Hit Singles II

Hello Rocksmith fans!

It’s time for another Hit Singles pack and this one definitely delivers with songs from @DavidBowieReal, @DefLeppard, @Foghat, and @Wolfmother!

We aren’t sure as to exactly what version of Slow Ride we are getting, but hopefully it’s one with an awesome bass outro!

Hit Singles II – $9.99 / Steam

Do you think this pack is befitting of Hit Singles, maybe even more so then it’s predecessor? Or is this still not your thing? Let us know!

Def Leppard Theory

I’d like to revisit something, hinted at earlier in the year.

We got Rock of Ages a month or so ago. Now we’re getting Hysteria. Is Ubisoft whetting the appetite for a possible full Def Leppard pack within the next two months?

If not, then I’m guessing they’ll be piecemealing this thing like they’re doing with Heart.

I am on crack. I needed a music history lesson from PJ to determine what I like better. Foghat is OK. DL is OK. I like the Wolfmother track…I don’t know enough about them to care if I get a pack. I like what I like…and per PJ that must be crack. I know what my inner Dice Clay would love so say to douche, but I shall refrain. Enjoy your time in moronville. Something tells me you call it home. jk PJ have a nice day and say no to drugs.

Ok, played all of em. I think Wolfmother and Bowie are really nice. I wasn’t that excited about Def Leppard…but I haven’t listened to them since ’88. It really took me back. Nice. I love Hysteria. Then there was foghat. Ok, whatever. I like the way it is played on lead, gotta try bass since someone mentioned the outro. I hardly ever bass. Overall I looked at the songs so far released and it isn’t my iPod list, but it is nice. Really want some Cult and some more STP and Megadeth and some DMB. Clapton would be sweet. U2 too. Ok said all that, overall I am grinning. I also played some Sum 41 last night and that is starting to grow on me.

Hysteria is the weakest song of the four, but it’s not bad. I would have been happier with something from High N’ Dry or Pyromania, but it’s all good. I’m having the most fun with Ziggy Stardust. I would love more packs like this, preferable from 60’s to 80’s bands.

Can tell these 2 guys r on crack…. Foghats dlow ride is a song that transcends a generation and def leppard also is a band when they came out everyone bought the album…. Wolfmother sucks soooooo bad is laughable that ur asking for a entire pack of that crap…. And Bowie is Bowie blaaahhhhh!

Fantastic pack. For me, It’s been several months since I’ve seen a pack this appealing.

Slow Ride has a special place in my heart…here’s why
for when I was 16 & she was 10 she used to listen to her older brothers and I jam to this song on guitar.
10 years later when I was 26 & she was 20 she walks into a bar I was hanging out at and puts Slow Ride on the jukebox & walks up and asks….do you remember me..?
I said yes I do remember you and she then asked are you going to take me for a Slow Ride ?…………and I did …….and did…………and did
talk about your Oingo Boingo

Yes, Slow Ride has a special place in my heart, too. I remember getting busy with my first real girlfriend in the back seat of my buddy’s car, grooving on valium and 100 proof vodka, while Slow Ride was playing. The next thing I remember is semi-waking up fully dressed in front of my house and falling out of the car and stumbling in and going to bed.

Take it easy indeed. 🙂

Is it the full 8 minute version of slow ride or the short one? Because after doing a great job charting hocus pocus, there is no reason they could not do the 8 minute slow ride. I will not buy it if they did the short version.

I too hope there is more DL on the way, but I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised with hysteria. Just finished an 80 min session playing the pack, mostly hysteria. The arpeggios are fun.

Sure, i love Slow Ride and Ziggy Stardust. But the other 2. I have a problem with them.

Wolfmother is OK. But it feels wrong. It sounds like Mars Volta. Only without the spanglish, Cedric’s vocals and Omar’s crazy guitars. Also, this song is kinda boring. But really OK.

Def Leppard is (at least, for me) a chore to listen (and play) through. You better be a lead guitarist, because rhythm and bass look boring as hell. Lead isn’t too impressive either. There’s that “solo” and that’s it. Maybe it’s just me.

Take all except Hysteria. Too many other great Leppard songs to be happy bout that one. How about Bringing on the Heartbreak or Too Late For Love, or more from Pyromania. Please.

gods of war, foolin, photograph…. if you need any extra on your way to the request app 😉

Gods of War is a totally underrated tune. Steve’s intro and chorus riffs and Phil’s verse riffs are near perfection imo.

I’ll probably be in the minority here, but the only song I’ll be picking up is Joker and the Thief. While the other songs are classics, I would have picked other songs from them. Oh well, you can’t win them all. Enjoy everyone. 🙂

theres been no metal since MAY!!!! (the AMAZING slayer pack). wtf is going on

Variety.

Joseph McMirra
Guest

one could argue that volbeat , breaking benjamin and faith no more both have metal elements to them. Im thinking your specifically thinking of thrash style of metal. So yes, variety…but im sure we will get more :). I think another megadeath pack could easily be in order very soon 😉

Luke
Guest

true @joseph, i like individual bands rather than dismissing sub genres but i’m currently lacking heavy stuff. we haven’t had anything like that for half a year so thats not a variety issue @YYZ

Danzig (no.1 on my wish list!) isn’t heavy in distortion terms but its heavy music. give me some DARK! my money is ready

Just Dave
Guest

Well OK. I like Bowie and Hysteria tape got worn out in my tape deck. Foghat and Wolfmother are OK too. Still haven’t blown my fuse with excitement, but OK. This will at least put Def Leppard up to 3 songs. More Bowie is cool too.

Joseph McMirra

and bowie up to 4 , be nice to get moonage daydream to round it to 5 tracks

Why are the Texas blues not getting any love in this game. Chris Duarte would make a nice addition. Srv wouldn’t be bad either.

Nice one Rocksmith -- I understand its not for everyone, but to be fair it is classic rock tunes and not some carbage nobody’s heard of for a change! I will pick up all 4 of these tunes -- keep this genre of music coming !!! oh yeah -- The Cult next please !!!!

Hysteria!!!! My favorite song! Yes this is a great pack. Wolfmother eh, but the rest are great. The new Def Leppard album isn’t that good, so I’m glad to see they got hysteria instead of getting early rights to a new song.

We don’t even know if Ziggy wrote his own songs, but who cares? Any time we can get some music from another time and space, it’s all good! IMHO??

Foghat wins. The others a good enough to maybe consider downloading at some point down the road. Excluding Hysteria, that is. What a terrible song. Even by 80s glam-metal ballad standards, it’s pretty bad.

HA!
Guest
HA!

Woo, awesome pack! 🙂

Is Hysteria a re-recording, too? I assume that it must be.

All of these songs sound great. I hope to eventually master them all. Keep the music coming Rock Smith and keep the updates of the Music Riff Repeater.

Slow Ride! And Ziggy Stardust, too. But, I requested Foghat. I’ll pretend I’m driving to get concert tickets with Matthew McConaughey in the 70s.

It’s alright. I’m not getting the first two but I’m in for Def Leppard. I’ll wait to see the chart for Foghat. Love the song but don’t know if I want learn it.

Ha, everyone was ready to hate after hearing wolfmother(which i think is a nice modern addition) and we end up getting more D.L, D.B and a classic from foghat…people can relax…it is indeed a great pack 🙂 😛
