Speculation: Singles from Ted Nugent, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Deep Purple head to Rocksmith next week!

Greetings Rocksmith fans, the code has been posted and cracked, and it looks like we are going back to the 70s next week.

The Wingdings decoded to map coordinates

First Line

42.3314 N, 81.059 W

Lake Erie

Second Line

31.3369 N, 81.,6613 W

Florida State Campus, Jacksonville

Third Line

51.7950 N, 0.0780 W

1 Queen’s Rd Hertford SG14 1EN, UK

Each coordinate refers to a different musical artist as confirmed by @DanAmrich

We’ve already had singles from Deep Purple and Lynyrd Skynyrdbut this will be the first time the ever controversial Ted Nugent appears in the Rocksmith DLC Library!

What songs could they pick? There’s so many but here is the likely culprits.

Or perhaps Stranglehold?

Or Tuesday’s Gone, or Gimme Three Steps, or I Know A Little or- well, you get the idea..

Or Burn?

Are you excited for a trip back to the 1970s? Are you uncomfortable with giving Ted Nugent money? Let us know!

maybe i love to much playing guitar, that i want songs that gives mood when you played it not just some barred chord or even chord impossible to play its sounds good.. but it aint meaning nothing

give me any artist and i will give you their best song o play on this game i say that cause i fear , i fear that the artist i loved would be not so well represented . they should have imitate guitar hero just for that put three edition

Reggea/Funk/RnB
years 1950 to this date

Rock Alternatif/Pop Rock /everything that comes out from this day ( and there too*)
years 1970 -- to this date

hard rock/classic rock / metal…etc —- *this would be where you ll make your money
years under 1996 to 1966

and they should put 2 dlc per style per week that shouyld be awesome .. but too much to be in this world

just sayin that they shouldve had a 3 pack game , like the 3 i mention up there , and …… forget it im livin in world call my mind where everything is all right and everything is done in a good way i love the game but i wish it could have been more and that is why in my opinion that it might fall like rockband or guitar hero it was great idead but this they should find a way to incorporate drum and everything and well be playin with live band on ethernet making battle . show , and you can upload up to three song of your band like an eponyme … i just wish i get this idea stoled so it could one day see the light

I’m not into this kind of rock either (“conservative…” eww!). What the hell is Ubisoft thinking, releasing music that some people might not like?

When I hear Cat Scratch Fever or Free Bird, all I can think of is that horrible second amendment (can’t Obama just cross it off or something?) and how every fetus has a “right to free social healthcare” or (something like that-- who has time to remember all the ins-and-outs?).

I’m not foolish enough to think that all music is evil or one-sided or conspiring, but I’d show up with gallons of copies of “Double Live Gonzo” and “Second Helping” just to make sure future generations weren’t subjected to their hidden backmasked agendas that could result in more kids growing up into lunatics like the “Motor City Madman” instead of the Al Sharptons and Ed Shultzes that this country desperately deserves.

…because it’s all about playing politics in Rocksmith, right? Forget about that whole playing guitar thing.

Very nice. And as a fairly (gasp!) conservative myself, why would I buy anything from that drug-addled moron Ozzy Osbourne? Well, because War Pigs would rock, that’s why. And you know, Alice Cooper is kind of conservative too, so is there a way we can delete No More Mr. Nice Guy, or get our money back…?

I was under the impression that “No More Mr. Nice Guy” was a song about what happens when you admit you’re a conservative to people who otherwise would have had no idea. Forget what kind of person they thought of you before, now they know you!

Kidding, of course, but maybe that’ll bring a smile to your face next time you listen to the words… or maybe some loon lurking in the comments will stop reading after my last paragraph and think it’s a fact. What could be better?

Yes! Gimme Stranglehold, please! Simple Man is probably my favourite Skynyrd song -- I’ll take that one, thank you very much!

As much as Deep Purple was my old man’s favourite band, I honestly have no opinion either way as to what song they’re going to give us for that one because I was never a fan myself. I’ll take Highway Star, I guess?

No matter -- Stranglehold and Simple Man would be automatic downloads for me and they could wild card the Deep Purple song for all I care to wrap up a pretty bitchin’ three pack. Can’t wait to see what we get!

None of the cash for Bachsmith went to that particular loonie tune, just to Rocksmith.

I hear you. And my small protest at not buying his music won’t change his views. He probably already scored a big payday just for the one song before DLC sales.

I have personally drawn the line with this one though. I don’t expect everyone to feel the same way.

Excellent! Just the kind of pack I was waiting for. Nugent’s Stranglehold is an absolute must for any guitarist. Sick track! I don’t see eye to eye with the man either (I’m liberal and an atheist) but I have enough sense to appreciate good music when I hear it.

I’m guessing Simple Man is the Skynyrd track, which is a great tune as well. Deep Purple is probably Highway Star. Dan confirmed 2/3 tracks during the speculation thread and I think the one that was wrong was Skynyrd’s Tuesday’s Gone. Simple Man is far more likely since it was also recently featured in Bandfuse as DLC.

Youe were happy enough to purchase the original BandFuse DLC, and you will also be happy to grab the `upgraded` RS DLC of the same song. You should not hate it, cause it is not a must that you purchase it again. You might feel cheated as it is somewhat like paying for a patch for something you already own, but that is about it. In any case you are supporting both RS and the artist, both of which are worth supporting if you like their product.

Fair point, but they aren’t (mostly) outspoken ass*oles. I try to give my money to people who I support as artists, or at the minimum, I try to avoid giving money to people who are idiots and stand in opposition to views I hold. I know not everyone dislikes him and/or his viewpoints, but he rubs me and many people I know the wrong way. There aren’t a whole ton of musicians out there that irk me nearly on the same level.

Deep Purple need a pack to themselves, as do Skynrd.

Skipping Ted on principal. It looks like Nugent and Rocksmith have something else in common; they both have issues with RATM…

Would love to see ‘Simple Man’ in there, my favourite Skynyrd track.

When a ‘Blind Man Cries’ is one of my favourites off of Machine Head, but a little slow and simple for Rocksmith probably to be worth while. ‘Highway Star’ would have to be a safe pick.

It is a little disappointing that they couldn’t just do a separate pack for each instead of adding a single track to already on disk artists. Oh well, two outa three ain’t bad.

In 2007, Zach de la Rocha of RATM was quoted at the Coachella festival as saying “In this current administration, there is no exception… they should be hung, and tried and shot,”.

Nugent responded on Hannity & Colmes stating;
“Yes, you know, we disagreed with a lot of administrations in the past, but none of our rhetoric included, you know, threatening lives. These guys are over the top. But they’re lunatic fringe that even your average Democrat liberal doesn’t agree with. But, unfortunately, nobody is silencing these guys, or not necessarily silencing, but condemning this outrageous violence that they’re recommending.”

I’m unfortunately not able to find the original video but the transcript is here:

I didn’t realise it was added after ’97. Aparently Ritchie Blackmore didn’t like it even though it was recorded at the original ’71 session.

It was relegated to a B-side until then. Aparently Blackmore wouldn’t even play it live. I love it though.

Earlier this year, Rocksmith got a fair amount of songs that were on disc or DLC for Bandfuse. Now with Bandfuse long gone, Rocksmith is probably going to get a lot more so Simple Man is pretty much given.

Rocksmith has Master Mode. I’m not sure how that’s different than Bandfuse’s Real Mode.

I do like the ‘ducking’ feature in Bandfuse, though. And Bandfuse has great guitar tones and tracks what you’re playing better than Rocksmith. Rocksmith still misses a lot of notes even when my playing is spot on. Also, I prefer the traditional tab format, but I’m probably in the minority on that one.

After grinding for the FC on GH drums (when the drums were still new tome), I never wanted to hear Stranglehold again.

Oh well… I doubt I’ll bother trying to learn it unless it’s for a weekly challenge.

I’ll be happy with ANY Deep Purple. Not really a Skynyrd fan but, any single would get a little love from me. Tuesday’s Gone and That Smell would by awesome but, I have a feeling it’ll be Simple Man.
