Rocksmith Remastered DLC 12/20/2016 – Green Day II

Hello Rocksmith fans!

It’s been a great year but now it’s time to end it with a Bang (Bang) thanks to a five pack from your corporate event DJ’s favourite punk band, @GreenDay!

This time around we get a selection of tracks from Dookie (Longview), Nimrod (Good Riddance [Time Of Your Life]), American Idiot (Wake Me Up When September Ends), 21st Century Breakdown (21 Guns), and finally their latest effort, Revolution Radio (Bang Bang). This brings the total @GreenDay content in Rocksmith Remastered to nine songs! A good start indeed.

Green Day II Song Pack – $11.99 / Steam

Eb Standard is sooo 1994.

 


Well there you have it, the final DLC of 2016 from Green Day! Are you excited for five more songs from the trio? Or is this a letdown to an otherwise amazing DLC year? Let us know, and don’t forget it’s almost time to vote on The Best DLC of 2016, stay tuned!

You shall all be visited by three spirits this night………..

I urge you all to not let the chains of musical close mindedness and negativity that are forged in life weigh you down in death as I have. Now I am cursed to forever roam the world looking for a pearl jam concert that I may never find. Ooooooooo OoooooOooooooooooOooooo OooooooooOOOOOO

Would have been an instabuy, but censored lyrics means a skip for me :/

Dude, the game teaches you how to play the songs not sing them. I’m usually more focussed on trying to make my part sound good than worrying about what the vocal track is doing. I would boycott a radio station for censoring music but I wouldn’t deprive myself of learning how to play songs I like over it.

Your loss

This pack was amazing!

This is probably my favorite pack of this year next to Pixies, Rush and Collective Soul

Ill pick em up, im typically a warning and below kinda guy but its better then no green day. Im just glad these tracks are out of the way so future packs can focus on deeper cuts. only big big single that im luke warm about that has not been released is holiday/boulavard , and if it comes as one dlc track id be super enthusiastic . Overall fantastic year , hoping for some song pack 2s from soad, spumpkins , achains, sublime , deftones and blink which I think has a pretty good chance happening this year . Always… Read more »

To quote Funkentelechy by Parliament -- “oooh there he go again.” And another one “Go Maggot Brain.”

Longview is the song that started it all and made me a fan so I’m excited especially for the bass line. This pack is sort of funny considering that most Green Day songs are uptempo and most of these songs are more mid tempo alt rock

MarleySantana
Guest

Sorry, I can’t let this go. That line, “enjoy a little holiday sneer” in this month’s news letter was far too misleading. Between that and the “Green” comment, i thought for sure “Holiday” would have been a part of this Green Day pack.

As a GD fan, this is a pretty disappointing pack of songs. I play bass and guitar, so I was really looking forward to some fun songs to play on bass since Mike Dirnt is a badass. Longview is really the only interesting song on here. I don’t know why Ubisoft keeps neglecting old GD. Out of 9 songs, only 3 are pre-American Idiot. So many missed opportunities here.

Just give us the entire dookie album ( id also buy a full warning one)

Appreciate the continued DLC for this product but this pack was a dissappointment at the level of the “Aerosmith pack”.
I’m sure many of us expected the omissions of the first pack ; “When I Come Around”, “Minority”, “Holiday”, “Warning”, and “Brain Stew”.
Such a missed opportunity…

MarleySantana

Most definitely agree.

Thomaz

Wow, they really fucked it up :/ Longview is the only good song and it barely has a guitar part

Was tempted to vote “Wake Me Up When December Ends” just for the pun… good job!

Definitely taking this pack, great selection in my opinion. 🙂

Was hoping for more punkish songs maybe even pre-dookie era, but ubi goes safe with their hits. But I’m still bought bang bang. Didn’t hear it before, and glad that gd get back to more punk then pop

Wisenheimer
Guest

Well, thanks for “Longview” anyway. I’m going to have a super hard time choosing between the excellent Rush and Yes packs as this year’s “pack of the year”.

James Anderson
Guest

I’ll still get the pack, but having 21 Guns and Wake Me Up When September Ends before so many of their better songs is definitely a letdown. Here’s hoping it’s less than 3 more years until pack 3.

Joseph McMirra

Dito, get ride of bang bang as well

While this isn’t my dream Green Day pack, its still a VERY solid selection of songs and I’m picking it up day 1.
2016 brought some fantastic dlc and I couldn’t be happier, though it definitely makes it harder to pick my favorite pack of the year!

dallasdave
Guest

Not the songs I would have picked, might pick this up when it goes on sale next year, but that’s normal for me.

We got some good packs this year, so I’m looking forward to the packs of the year voting. My picks would be Megadeth 2 and Rush 2.

Well, at least now we know why Ubisoft dropped that new patch recently--preparing to show some love for the acoustic side of things. I’m a little disappointed in the pack as I’d hoped to see either Holiday, Minority, or Geek Stink Breath. On the flip side, they did a good job of spreading the DLC across Green Day’s history. Adding a recent release to that is quite impressive—most impressive. (<-- sorry, tis the season--SW season that is) Definitely like the pack, and will buy it. Probably will play it sparingly as I continue to work on that SRV pack. Seng-il… Read more »

It’s just a shame that when love is shown to the acoustic guitar side of things with certain dlc choices it has to come at the cost of showing zero love to the electric bass side of things.

MarleySantana
Guest
You’re right, however; this is an ongoing battle. While the bass does not get as much love in Rocksmith as it should, there are genres that are also sorely underappreciated in Rocksmith. To kill 2 with one stone, many of those genres typically shine a greater light on the bass. Reggae, Hip Hop (not just rap, but Hip Hop), Funk, Classic Blues, Gospel, and Jazz. At best guess 90% of the DLC this year was uninteresting to me, however; I will applaud Ubisoft for turning around a major complaint I had up until Summer--very few changes in variety. I’m not… Read more »

Dude, I’m all for variety (and I believe it can be had without excluding anyone) and I’m not looking for any “bass moments” that I know probably aren’t coming anyway. I’m not complaining because I haven’t received any non-stop sixteenth note light funk dlc (that probably only has a pinch of rhythm guitar in it), nor do i expect any. All I’m asking is that , whatever genre it may be, the songs have actual bass in them (yes, I’d rather they have a lot bass in them but I’m okay with just a little as long as its some… Read more »

Well stated and I agree on all points.

Side note and question: We still haven’t seen any music from Prince. Would it be a slap in the face, once again, if Ubisoft did a pack and included When Doves Cry and Kiss?

Wisenheimer
Guest
Again, given all the great Prince music that does contain bass and the extremely limited number of dlc spots available.. Yes, to me it would. I love those two songs. I wore out 2 purple rain cassettes in my Walkman back in the 80’s. Rocksmith is not about the songs that I want to listen to. It’s about the songs that I want to play and I only play the bass. Rocksmith only supports two instruments, guitar and bass. Is only being offered dlc that contains both really that big an ask? Especially if it prevents 15% of your customers… Read more »

Oh…also.. While I really do appreciate Ubisoft at least giving us the faux charts instead of nothing like they used to (even at six and a half cents per note), if they were to release those two songs I would hope that they would respect his decision to omit the bass and not offer any bass tracks for them. And if they were part of a 12 pack I wouldn’t mind as much. Lol

MarleySantana
Guest
Wow, Prince gets the big 12 pack. Nice touch. I think Hendrix is the only one with that so far. Let me preface this next part by saying, I’m still happy we have Green Day. It’s just not the way I personally would have done the pack. Additionally, I wonder how much say so the artist and the record label had in selecting the songs. (Pretty sure that’s a big factor as well.) I think where this pack fails, as I’m seeing from many of the other posts here, is that the essentials are missing. And those feature both bass… Read more »

Sorry, just noticed a typo. 21 guns.

The irony is, bass gets more love than Rhythm. At least most songs have a bass chart, there are dozens of songs with no rhythm chart at all. Look at this site, a great site to preview the upcoming packs but all you see is the Lead and Bass, never Rhythm. Try to find rhythm on YouTube, its sparse. So while your protests are all well and good remember others have it a bit worse.

Thanks, I will give it a look.

Its funny how bass enthusiasts talk about needing more love when rhythm is so neglected in this game. When you go to the rocksmith forum there are always contests or challenges for lead and bass, never rhythm.

Its pretty rare that conversations even take place about rhythm, and its what I actually love playing. I think the rhythm guitarist probably gets the least love of any musician in a band.

Wisenheimer

Hmm….well, I certainly want all rhythm section players to receive their fair share of the love but let me ask you this; how many alternate rhythm guitar bonus arrangements are there? For Bass there are seven…… Lol
