Rocksmith 2014 DLC 6/9/2015 – Rockabilly Song Pack

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Today’s DLC is all about Rockabilly and there’s a definite surprise in the mix.

We had already confirmed Carl Perkins Blue Suede Shoes and joining him are four other tracks such as Ricky Nelson’s Hello Mary Lou (Goodbye Heart), Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps’ Be-Bop-A-Lula, Brian Setzer’s Rock This Town (2010 solo re-record) and yes even Queen’s Crazy Little Thing Called Love!

It’s rare to have a Rocksmith 2014 DLC that has songs ranging from 1956, 1957, 1961, 1980, and 1982! How’s that for some variety. Be-Bop-A-Lula may be the oldest song ever used in a music game period.

Also, guess what? They are all E Standard, no vari-speed for these hip cats.

Rockabilly Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

Are you excited to hone your skills on these classic rockabilly tunes? Or is this just not something you are digging? Let us know!

So now we have something monstrous, and some unusual animals to look forward to this month. I do hope it is Arctic Monkeys. Seems unlikely that they would release Def Leopard along side the something monstrous.

Depending on if you go by the date arranged or the date of the original composition, I think Bachsmith could be considered older.

Rocksmith maybe, but not “any music game ever”. That would be Cry Cry Cry from Rock Band (1955)

INSTA-BUY for me. Pleasant surprises. More Queen. Brian Setzer. Booyah.

Now I want a Rockabilly 2 with some RHH, more Brian Setzer / Stray Cats, and maybe Bill Haley & His Comets. Maybe in a few months. 🙂

I felt the same way, especially on “rock this town” although I prefer the original stray cats version. This version seems to have lost a few bass notes. Thankfully RS doesn’t penalize my score for adding them back in. Lol

Now we please have another Hair Metal pack, a couple Punk packs and at least one Country pack? Not the pop Country, the real stuff.

Nice to know you can get a band that has had a pack and can have a song in a mixed pack.

That gives me more hope for more packs.

What I would like -- giving no names for bands.

Long Songs Pack.
New Wave Pack
Death Metal Pack -- Mostly for my friend 😀
Easier Songs Pack -- Easy songs that would be fun when learning to play guitar.

And other mixed pack ideas I’m sure I would like to see

If an easier song pack came out, we could songs like Iron Man out of the way before they waste slots in band packs

Iron Man is pretty easy until the middle of the solo.

I can play the start of the solo but then it gets harder for me to play.

There’s so many areas that haven’t been touched (roots reggae, country, flamenco), and quite a few that have seen multiple contributions. I’m guessing the DLC schedule is based on when they receive artist/publisher approval and then complete the programming.

Good idea on the “Long Songs” pack. I was thinking they could just to a Rock Instrumentals pack
SRV -- Little Wing
Aerosmith -- The Movie
Van Halen -- Baluchitherium (<--yeah I know better than to list that, but oh well)
Booker T & The MGs -- Green Onions
Santana -- In A Silent Way (from the Santana III album) wait for it to kick in.

Or even a Live Songs Pack
Fleetwood Mac -- Big Love
John Mayer Trio -- Who Did You Think I Was
Cream -- Crossroads
THE KING -- Paying the Cost to Be the Boss
Bob Marley & The Wailers -- No Woman No Cry

I was hoping for Be Bop A Lula! And, Crazy LIttle Thing Called Love is one of those must-buy songs for me and most people. I will buy this pack.

I suppose I will have $11.99 less to spend on Steam Sale DLC later this week!

If you actually listen to the song, you understand why it’s on there. The song has a definite rockabilly theme consistent with the others, and it was originally written as a tribute to Elvis Presley.

I’m so pleasantly surprised that there are so many RHH fans on this site. I’ve already requested several of their songs. I just saw them live last week with the Brains and Necromantix. What a fantastic show. There new album is great too by the way.

While I like the song, I kind of agree with you. The hint did say, “….classic Americana”. Although it’s rockabilly, it didn’t match the hint. Guess you’ve got to give ’em one.

This was a fun pack speaking as someone who only plays bass but I really want a funk pack. How about a few times a year we have dlc weeks that cater to bassists?
