Song Speculation: Rocksmith celebrates UBI30 with singles from 1986

Hello Rocksmith fans!

The clue has been posted and solved (quite quickly if I might add) and it looks like we are going back to the 1980s once again, that’s 1986 to be specific.

Anyway, let’s look at the clue @UbiParadise posted.

The password of course to unlock the image (it’s a GIF) was 1986 which revealed…

Looks familiar?

I’ll help

Yup, finally KLOG himself @KennyLoggins will be added to the growing Rocksmith library!

Absolutely crushed this puzzle. Great job! \m/

We’ll be ridin’ into the danger zone this week as we take a trip back to 1986. Ubisoft’s 30th birthday was this year and we’ll be celebrating it with the new UBI30: 1986 Song Pack. This pack will feature five tracks that rocked 1986. First up: “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins which was composed for the movie Top Gun.

Stay tuned to our Rocksmith social media this weekend for another song reveal.


 

So we have the theme of the pack, songs from 1986 that rock! What else could be appearing?

The following is speculation

More music from the greatest Rocky

this is @pcgamingisted’s prediction. Solid track!

@OsagaTheGreat hopes this one makes it in. What a bass line!

Could you imagine?

Let there be no doubt about it, Rory is hoping we get this amazing bass line.


There’s a few of our 1986 predictions? Do you have some you’d like to share (No GnR or Metallica, please). Let us know in the comments below!

I saw Bret Michaels perform last night (Sun.) and he opened with “Talk Dirty to Me”. Great show. He also played the Poison version of “Your Mama Don’t Dance”(co-written by Kenny Loggins). So far the three songs revealed are all songs I have requested through the app.

Additional suggestions from 1986

Prince -- Kiss

Van Halen -- 5150 (sure the whole CD would be nice but I’m talking the title track here)

Robert Cray -- Smoking Gun

Guest

I still want jackyl in a pack not 80s band but biggest songs but in a 90s pack would be cool

Hooo… Wasted Years would be awesome! *fingers crossed*

Guest

Hopefully none of these. I’ll take Danger Zone but…eesh.

I know the drill, though. Every week isn’t for everyone haha.

Guest

Theme from top gun

Word Up by Cameo! Just kidding. Addicted to Love would be cool, I suspect Boston’s Amanda, but I’d be pretty ho-hum about that.

Bob Goudreau

We have Amanda already.

Good catch. I guess I’m really just not into that particular Boston song.

MarleySantana

No need to kid about that, it’s cool, however; a better song by Cameo would be Candy.

I’ll have to take your word for that. Word Up! is the only Cameo song I know, and that’s because of the Korn remake in Rock Band (Lego one, I think). I actually do kinda like it.

INXS -- What You Need

Talk Dirty To Me seems like a good candidate (with two other Poison songs already in the game)

You Give Love A Bad Name

Rory McLean

We’ve had You Give Love A Bad Name since December 2014. There are plenty others from Slippery When Wet however that would qualify and are definitely desirable to have in game.
