Rocksmith 2014 DLC 4/19/2016 – 80s Mix Pack

Hello Rocksmith fans!

It’s time to blaze it with some scorching 80s tracks this week!

Newcomer to Rocksmith 2014, Devo brings some much needed new wave with Girl U Want, @JudasPriest returns to tangle our fingers with Electric Eye, and last but not least @ExtremeBand ups the the difficulty bar once with Play With Me!

80’s Mix Pack – $7.99 / Steam

 


 

Are you pleased with this mix of songs from the 1980s? Or do you want to get as far away from that century as possible? Let us know!

It’s ok, lol. I knew you were talking to me. I agree with you that online multiplayer would be a fun addition. Maybe when they release another sequel, we’ll get it.

Just saying son, not hating. Not everyone is like you and get free Dlc.I’m more than 100% sure that there were more requests for Neil Young than Collective Soul and I don’t need to look at any database!

The metal-patch denim vest combo’d with the hand-drawn My Little Pony poster in the bass videos is pure gold. 🙂

Anyone for some Robin Trower or Neil Young?,instead of this run of the mill DLC.. Get something that people are actually requesting.

Robin Trower would be great!

For real.. What a dick…. I’d take a prince pack over any of the trash RS put out so far this year!

Really great pack. I like all the songs, but I’ll probably just pick up Electric Eye and Play With Me. I actually like Girl U Want too, but don’t really have an interest in learning it. What is really exciting about this pack though is the addition of more Judas Priest. I love JP. Glenn Tipton is one of my guitar heroes, and I’ve been working for years to emulate how he plays.

I’m a little sad the Hellion wasn’t included, but I think RS made the right choice. I would have hated paying $3 for it, and I would have hated having it separate from Electric Eye. I love the song, but it’s not worth the cost. I think a lot of people complaining on this board about the omission forget that Rocksmith isn’t the only avenue for learning guitar.

On that note, If anyone is interested, here’s a guitar tab for the Hellion, so you can play it before you start Electric Eye:
https://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/j/judas_priest/the_hellion_tab.htm

The only thing that makes me sad about this pack is that since JP got a single, that probably means we won’t be getting a Judas Priest pack 2 for a very long time. No Leather Rebel, Hellrider, Metal Meltdown, The Sentinel, Nightcrawler, Turbo Lover, Freewheel Burning, The Ripper, Ram It Down, or so many others. I could probably buy a 20 pack from Judas Priest.

No, RS isn’t going to get a Prince Pack because he died. You idiots.

Alright, now I’m not the only one who’s been asking for it. It’s about time Rocksmith goes Purple. (Should have happened before he died)

Prince pack!?

Even if Ubisoft did get permission, it would be several months. I recall Dan Amrich saying in one of the previous live-streams shortly after the deaths of the likes of David Bowie and Lemmy that people had wanted more of their songs in this game, but that the complexities of licensing mean that it is simply not possible to get permission for a song that quickly.

BlueCollarNINJA

Yes…obviously. Thank you. I’m hoping he’ll be featured in RS 2016?!

Agreed, and besides Play With Me is a great song…I need more Extreme!

so much whining this week. I for one am pleased to finally have something (2 tracks!) that I can NOT get in the high 90% range on my 2nd play through. It’s been a while since we had something to challenge those of us who like to play fast difficult material, I welcome it, this stuff makes me a more skilled player.

Electric eye is great! Right between Living after midnight and Painkiller in difficulty. Time for Priest pack 2 I hope: Hell bent for leather, Night Crawler, Ram it down, Metal Meltdown, Blood red skies… And JP deserves a six pack right?!? How about the cheesy goodness of Turbo Lover.

Wisenheimer

I’ll hold my breath for a 70’s pack. There was a lot of music I liked in the 80’s but none of it made it into the pack unfortunately.

Another week of keeping my hand in my pocket. Since the new year, I think 38 special is the only pack worth buying.

Hell yes, Devo! Pack’s an instant buy for me with that inclusion, hopefully they’ll have more someday.

Casey

All of these songs look super fun. I will probably get the whole pack. TBH I’m not that familiar the JP so I won’t miss the Hellion intro either.

Probably. Should have been Hellion/Electric Eye done as one song. This is supposed to go as a reply to Eliot.

gary drew

Will leave the pack except for electric eye. Really should have had Hellion intro attached though. Would have paid an extra buck for the combo. I’ve never heard Electric Eye played by itself. Even the radio always plays those two together.

Just Dave

Not interested. Had high hopes being that it was 80’s and such…never heard 2 of these songs…or if I did…turned them off quick. I am not really disappointed, extremely apathetic is more like it. So, no worries here and really meant no offense to any fans…

Just Dave

I know nothing about extreme…missed that group almost entirely.

CAVagrant

Sounds like people might have paid extra to have Hellion included. Missed opportunity there.

Speaking of Extreme… the songs are either way hard or too easy this week. My sweet spot is “Panic Switch”, Black Keys, Foo Fighters, etc.

Too many of those tall skinny bars on the chart and I have to pass.

Guitar World magazine (Ace/Slash) cover has “Tennessee Whiskey” and “Strange Ways” tabbed this month. That’s the kind a diversity I’m looking for.

Amazing pack this week! The inclusion of anything by Extreme gets me hyped. Not only that but Judas Priest too? Kinda bummed about no Hellion but it’s only a repeating 40 second intro (which honestly if you’re that distraught, just look it up on normal tabs). And Devo is probably the easiest pill to swallow when it comes to New-Wave, and I’m so glad it wasn’t a lackluster track like Whip It or I Ran (So Far Away). Excellent Pack for all three songs.

I am looking forward to all the songs even though Play with Me is beyond my skill level. I think this is a great DLC. This is the first one in a month I am buying. For all of you who don’t like this one, there is always next week. For me I like the diversity they have been putting out over the last several weeks even if I don’t buy them. To me, this gives players of different genres something that they may want to play.

Thank you rocksmith for reminding me that the 80’s weren’t thaaaat great.

Just Dave
Guest

Judas Priest sure, but I say whip it to the rest. It would take more than words to show my disappointment. If you go 80’s…don’t deep dive tracks from bands that barely had 2 hits…seriously

Pj-10

Quick question Is this pack free? Rocksmith you can’t possibly think this is good.

Yoggers

I would’ve much preferred Devo’s Tank Girl recording of Girl U Want. That would make this a full pack buy. This version is just too pop for me to enjoy listening to while playing. I’ll have to wait for Extreme until I get a little (a LOT) better. Will probably get the JP because it looks right about my level and style. And I don’t care that Hellion is missing -- I won’t miss it.

Can we get some non-metal tracks please… The Devo song is the only non-metal track this month. These devs praise variety all the time but I don’t see it this month at all. Not everyone is a shredder.

You might wanna look a bit further than this month only though 🙄

the_PWNER

I like to spend money every month on at least one pack. I haven’t spent a nickel this month. Thanks for your shitty comment. 🙄

firekorn
Guest

You can’t just say that you don’t aim for variety in pack over only 1 month of DLC. There will always be month that are more oriented or more eclectic than other depending on what license they got and what is ready for release.
Their is still one pack to be release and it might be something completely different too.

And you can always spend money on older packs/songs too you know. I mean you might have missed something or might have improve on some areas making older songs more approachable than when it was released. It’s not like you have to get one of the pack release this month absolutely.

We still have one more week of dlc this month, and its a mystery too. Who knows what it will be!

Mr_Muddle
Guest
Mr_Muddle

except you wouldnt have been able to play them one into the other anyway as they are “separate tracks” so unless the devs made it as one, then you can cue up the “why does this song cost twice as much as all the others? 40 seconds extra?”

As its been pointed out its a shame that Hellion is not on here but I’m still looking forward to playing Electric Eye which is one of my favourite JP songs. Not really bothered about the other 2 songs. Wish there was more stuff like Duran Duran

jacksonplayer

Wow the lack of hellion intro really ruins that judas priest song to the point I dont even want it anymore, it sucks that I have been wishing for that song for years now and this is what I get. Well great playing man, its a shame the developers did not make it right.

Odd how much value people put on 40 seconds of sustains

jacksonplayer

It really sets the whole tone for the rest of the song, it just feels complete with that intro.

I’ll never be able to play Play With Me, so I’ll only get that if I like the bass… I hate Devo so I won’t be getting that. I will get the Judas track, but it’s a shame that Hellion is missing
