Hello Rocksmith fans!

Well, if you recall Canadians got Billy Talent for July 1st, 2014 so it’s time to celebrate Independence Day with Rocksmith 2014, next week!

Let’s take a look at the clue from @DanAmrich and @UbiParadise!

icenine22122 was on the case!

We still weren’t sure how to unlock the GIF but then of course who came along?

FonsoQ with the answer!

McHenry

Why McHenry? @DanAmrich explains

At first I suggested a deep dive into the history of the song, but realized that would be uninteresting for people outside the U.S. Then Jason and I got to talking about how America’s national anthem is one of the most hilariously misterpreted songs ever; people sing it and have no idea what they are singing, and just go with the closest phonetic thing they can think of. So we compiled all those misheard lyrics, and made McHenry the password since the original song was written about a battle at Fort McHenry.

Awesome, and guess what song is confirmed?

We always love more Boston right?


What other songs should be included in a pack themed around the USA? I have a few thoughts…

Finally Neil Young in Rocksmith! /sarcasm

what you gonna do BROTHER?

Classic

ohhh yeah


What songs are you hoping to see next week? Let us know!

Grateful Dead -- US Blues or maybe Liberty.

During the July 4th Fare Thee Well show last year US Blues was played in Chicago while the Empire State Building light show was synchronized. It’s practically a second National Anthem at this point.

I’d pay good money for Hulk Hogan’s theme song to be in this pack.

Adjusting my list to add a few.

Again, I’m surprised no one has mentioned Don McClean as we hear that nearly every 4th.

Additions:
Funkadelic -- One Nation Under a Groove
John Mellencamp -- Pink Houses

James Brown -- Living In America
Alabama -- 40 Hour Week
John Mellencamp -- R.O.C.K. in the USA
2 Live Crew -- Banned in the USA
Brad Paisley -- American Saturday Night

Also, I read where Dan hinted that there may be a surprise. For that reason, I’ll throw in

VH -- Jump

Actually, following up on my previous post, I think we may be getting the Brooks & Dunn song.

The thing I don’t get is that a search for “only in america creed” and “only in america brooks” both turn up a Rocksmith listing, however the Creed song is actually titled In America (without the “only”; I realized this after I made my last post).

I tried searching “in america creed” but it doesn’t work, so we might not be getting the Creed song after all.

That screen doesn’t look familiar. I’m guessing this is a search conducted on the PS3, correct?

re: Neil Young

This keeps confusing me. America is surely the continent, of which north America is a part, within which the USA and Canada both are countries?

Anyone with a globe will also note that there’s a third country in north america as well despite what the UN says. Lol

4th of July by Soundgarden would be nice…and hate all you want on this one but I like America by Imagine Dragons that would be smooth. Livin in America by Morris Day was it? Remember from Rocky 3…that’d be sweet too.

Liberty by Steve Vai anyone? Off the same Passion & Warfare album as For The Love Of God….I know it’s a short track but it’s awesome and the more instrumentals the better in my opinion….

Top if my wishlist would be American Nightmare by The Misfits but that’s unlikely….Does it have to be USA or patriotic themed or could it be something off the wall like Yankee Rose by DLR?

it seems dated now of course, but in the 80s the whole sci fi/ fantasy thing was pretty big and you’ll see similar art work on many albums of the time. Boston even used space ship props at most of their concerts.

Yes, I know the band is German, but it’s named after a USAF base…

I’m surprised you all haven’t mentioned Don McClean.

Also, think of all of those songs you hear during the 4th of July fireworks/laser shows.

Living In America -- James Brown
40 Hour Week -- Alabama
R.O.C.K. in the USA -- John Mellencamp
Banned in the USA -- 2Live Crew
American Saturday Night -- Brad Paisley

Will we have a bunch of non-American Commies complaining about the DLC? I bet PJ-10 isn’t an American. Anyways, I’m picking Neil Young’s Rocking In The Free World.

But America and Canada are basically the same country, right? Most people can’t tell the difference.
