Rocksmith Takes the Power Back with Variety Pack VII!

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

It’s that time of week again, so lets take a look at what the clue has in store!

It’s just a .jpg, so there’s not going to be anything hidden inside. Have you figured it out yet? Maybe this will help you see the connection.

The forums had some ideas about what it could be.

But that still doesn’t explain the Uncle Sam in the background. Hmmm… What could it be…

Now we’re getting somewhere! All we need now is to see if it’s officially confirmed.

A power struggle indeed! Yes, Take the Power Back is one of four songs coming to Rocksmith Remastered this week as part of Variety Pack VII!


It’s been a few weeks since our last variety pack, and as usual these are just blind speculations as for what could join it. With that said, here’s our personal picks for what we want to see this week!

What follows is speculation

R.E.M. – It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Sorely missing from the first R.E.M. pack, these Variety Packs have often made good on major songs that were mysteriously excluded from original packs.

Razorlight – America

Rocksmith have always had a good selection of UK music and hopefully it can be added to with easily the most recognizable song from the incredible Razorlight!

X Ambassadors – Renegades

A perfect campfire song that everyone is sure to know. It’s exactly what microphone mode is craving with this chart topping acoustic smash.


Are you excited for more Variety in Rocksmith, or do you think they need to get more focused? Let us know in the comments!
UPDATE:

I was hoping we’d get a song from The Mentors. I like that one where they sing about using a person’s face as toilet paper.

More RATM is always a good thing. Razorlight would be great, I once requested “In The Morning”. Also hope for Therapy and/or Bloc Party.

They will probably have to put some hardcore country (right wing) artist to balance the pack.

Hardcore country ? What would those type of bands be called? We are bleeding pickup ! Hmmmm, maybe gritty up? Death boots & beer? Trailer Grave? Demon Cowboy? Hellbilly? Blood neck? Trump Card?

Dank Vader
Guest

By “hardcore” I meant the most inbred, redneck, sh*t kickin, pickup truck driving, sheep loving, twang laden music to listen to while beating your loved ones. That should appeal to the people that are crying about the Rage song.

Joseph McMirra

I think sheep loving is more of a negative welsh stereotype. So your describing Taylor Swift , huh?

Dank Vader
Guest
Dank Vader

I was under the impression Taylor Swift was Pop music. The only people from Wales I am familiar with are Terry Jones, Christian Bale and Catherine Zeta-Jones; not a large enough cross section of the population to develop a stereotype. The state I live in is Wyoming adjacent and they seem to enjoy Toby Keith and Velcro gloves.

AWESOME Song! Always when I pick up a guitar(acoustic) I played de riff on “No more lies” part. But the entire song is very fun to play. I don’t like que political ideology of the band, but they are great musicians.

Great!!!! So Rocksmith is “kind of” supporting the whole boycott Trump thing it seems. I am not a fan of Trump, but all of this resistance nonsense is shameful and disturbing stuff. I turn to Rocksmith for leisure and catharsis away from the realities of the world; sad they too have to jump on this pitiful bandwagon.

No, it’s just coincidence. Have you forgotten that we already have 7 other RATM songs?

And that releasing a DLC is not done in one week? I think they said the whole process takes at least 3 months, for the faster.

Can we please not take it there? No-one has even mentioned that name yet on this board. Whether, Ubisoft is getting involved with today’s events or not, you can still turn to Rocksmith for the Jackson 5, Fleetwood Mac, Skillet (<--hmm i wonder if that comment will go unnoticed), Jimi Hendrix, Blink 182, Kansas, Tesla, John Williams, Mozart, Bach, Earth Wind and Fire, B.B. King, Brooks N Dunn, No Doubt, Steve Vai, and Kenny Rogers. There's too much else to focus on besides one week's worth of music. And if you really want to go to sleep and forget the… Read more »

‘Resistance is shameful and disturbing stuff…?’ Resistance…like the Boston Tea Party? Or, say, the entire American Revolution? Resistance…like the Women’s Suffrage movement? Resistance like sit-ins at lunch counters? The March at Selma? Protesting the VietNam War? (You think those Kent State kids had it coming, I’d guess.) Man, the people who are the loudest about how Americans should behave often come across as the most clueless as what it actually means to be an American. Disturbing, for sure. Rock and roll is not supposed to be anyone’s safe space. It’s very much the opposite (give or take Air Supply). There… Read more »

I understand fully; please do not come prancing in here with your “history” lesson. The protests you mention above (Boston Tea Party, Women’s Suffrage, and the civil rights protests) are a far cry from the protests of today (Trump, Ferguson, etc.). Also, those protests you mention above were well ORGANIZED, represented a CLEAR MESSAGE, and did not use VIOLENCE, IGNORANCE, and DESTRUCTION of public property and infrastructure (aside from the War of Independence, but that was war!). BTW, this is a music GAME j--kass! I am not talking about what the artists are saying in the songs (I was 20… Read more »

The March on DC has been enormously well organized. As have marches all over the world. (Ferguson is a whole ‘nother thing you’re projecting onto this. Has nothing to do with Trump. Try to keep your hysteria focused.) You’re the one asking for the safe space here, honey. “Please Rocksmith! I just want to relax and play my game!” You like U2? Do yourself a favor and skip the Joshua Tree tour. You would most certainly hear something from Bono that you would find upsetting. You sound triggered and like you have a lot of feelings to get out.

And the best part is all this was over the enormously left wing political leanings of this group of troublemakers: The Calling, Modern English and OneRepublic.

(There’s a lesson, but it’s already history, so nothing will be learned here.)

I will say I was very overreactive and way wrong. Love this pack and well, heck, “Take the Power Back” is a must for the pantheon.

What position is Ubisoft taking? That they’re releasing a popular song from a popular band to make money from people that want to play that song? The first RATM pack came out before Trump even announced his candidacy. You say you turn to Rocksmith to get away from the real world, yet you’re basically going out of your way to project real world implications that are very, very likely to be coincidental onto Rocksmith.

MarleySantana

Oh wow, I’m sorry I misread this. All I saw was ‘I am Locutus of Borg. Resistance is Futile.”

I think the next part is, ‘we will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own.”

Is it possible that “power” is a keyword in song titles like it was the case in a variety pack a while ago (with the word “love”)? That would be great to see Powerslave, Power of Equality, the Power of Love or Weak and Powerless to name a few. <3

I would love to see Rooftops by the Lost Prophets ! I found the tabs but that is not the same as if they made it in Rocksmith. .
Rise Against the Machine has some good tracks too. Curious to see what the others will be in the variety pack. 2017 looking good so far !

I had no idea he did that, WoW, I was confused until I google the name.. honestly I like the song but had no idea who the lead singer was, guess it won’t be something they would make a track for.

This would be a great time for Funkadelic.

Oh and if I’m reading it correctly, Audioslave has covered Super Stupid, so BAM!!! Rage and Funkadelic are connected.

Very fitting that you would put that particular R.E.M song in this pack. And I’m always down for more R.E.M! Maybe we will see Man on the Moon on RS someday?

What was wrong with the version of Bombtrack we got over 2 years ago?

I think the selection was due to the significance of today. (If not for that, I’d have liked to see Guerilla Radio or Mic Check)
