Does the “I Melt With You” rhythm have a capo like the live video?

Ha! The calling, I used to think the callings singer was so dreamy when I was a teen ,lol. Still dont think his voice matches his face, its like they got a boyband singer to sing over a late 90s alt rockpop song. Good song but talk about a one hit wonder, interesting picks this week, keep the variety packs coming!

Good contrast take classic RATM song and 3 fluff radio songs and take the power back sounds even better. I could picture tom morello firing a guitar at these sing along nice guy songs and blowing them up

The Calling, that’s a cool surprise. Nice song. Reminds me to request Lifehouse 🙂

Wow, lifehouse, have not heard that name in awhile, as far as late 90s alt pop/rock goes Id totally be down for a 5 pack by sugar ray, that guitar players not bad, hes got a few good licks

Now I have “Every Morning” in my head 🙂 Another one for the alt 90s poprock pack would be Vertical Horizon. And Goo Goo Dolls of course but that would be tuning hell.

Goo Goo Dolls really use lots of strange tunings. From memory (used to play a lot of GGD):
Iris: BDDDDD
Name: DADAAE
Black Balloon: DADDAD
Broadway is in standard tuning I think.
I would like Slide, Cuz You’re Gone and Big Machine.

wow, that is a lot, wonder if thats been a issue in getting them into rocksmith. Slide and cuz your gone are good, yeah I would not mind a bunch of songs from them. Silverchair is another band that I think about from this era, love those guys, I could have all of frogstompa or neon ballroom .

This pack kinda gave me whiplash. RATM is getting a buy from me but the other 3 are duds.

Okay, I’m sorry but the songs by the calling and onerepublic remind me of something I might hear while the credits are rolling at the end of an episode of “girls” and not something I really want to rock out to. Thanks for more RATM though rocksmith!!!! =)

Lolol, beauty and the beast. I was close. How about the review describing “counting stars” as “a folk pop song with a disco beat”? If I had read that first I wouldn’t have bothered listening to the song. Might just as well described it as being a turd with a hat on. Lol

Oh, I’ll get it too just to have something new to play and I actually like the two songs you mentioned. I understand why this stuff makes it into the game and I’m cool with it unless it doesn’t have any real bass in it at all. I’m still gonna snicker though. :). Lol
