Song Speculation: Rocksmith brings us Rockin’ Covers next week

 

Hello Rocksmith fans!

RollingStone222’s clue has been posted and solved, and it looks like we are in for something a bit different next week!

Let’s check it out.

It’s a GIF!

Some excellent movie quotes, what’s the common theme?

hmmm…

Anyone catch that?

 

Well I’ll be…

Nailed it!

@SeetherOfficial returns to Rocksmith!


A pack of Rock Covers? What a great idea, and there sure is a a lot to choose from. Could bands from the Rocksmith library return in this mixed pack? Who knows!

What follows is speculation

There’s many covers of this Gerry Rafferty classic, but this is definitely one of the best

How many Ska covers do you figure could be included?

I’d usually leave it to the comments section…

We already have one George Michael song in this pack, but I’d be fine with it…

Show of hands, how many people knew this was a Slade cover?

ugh, this is going to be in there isn’t it…


Are you excited for a pack full of Rockin’ Covers? Or would you rather have the originals? Let us know!

UPDATE:

“99 Red Balloons”, “Careless Whisper”, “Bad Romance” and “Tainted Love”. I heard Manson’s cover of “Tainted Love” last night and was thinking it would be a good fit for this pack.

Anything from me first and the gimme gimmes. Alien ant farm “smooth criminal”. Reel Big Fish “Take on Me”.

Faith No More’s cover of War Pigs would be great.

I wonder if Land of Confusion that Disturbed covered counts as rock, anyway, it is a really good cover

I caught Save Ferris on the Warped Tour in June. “Come On Eileen” was a high point of the day for me and would be great to see in the library.

I’d like to see Imagine covered by A Perfect Circle or The Boy with the Thorn in his Side covered by J Mascis included.

Actually after listening to that again I want the new Dinosaur Jr music in Rocksmith.

I was going to include “Just Like Heaven” always preferred their cover

It’d be weird to have 2 versions of ‘Just Like Heaven’ though. Hard to imagine they can get the rights to the Beatles, either. Both would be fun though.

The Primus version of “Have a Cigar” would be great, but I’m sure Pink Floyd are too big of douches to ever license it for a lowly video game.

I’m really, REALLY hoping for the Hendrix versions of Hey Joe or All Along the Watchtower (we’ve had both Hendrix songs and Bob Dylan songs in Rocksmith, so I’d say it’s plausible that we could get AATW).

Also another one that you should have mentioned in the speculation is I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll, as this was originally a song by the Arrows, however, everyone always thinks of Joan Jett’s version.

Call for experts if Funkadelic -- Maggot Brain is actually a cover of an oldie!
