Song Speculation: Rocksmith takes another trip back to the 60’s

xtumblr_mnaxo0upff1so5ik5o1_1280

Greetings, Rocksmith fans!

Looks like Rocksmith will be taking yet another trip back to that good old era of cherished classic rock, the 1960’s!

@UbiParadise posted the clue earlier today, let’s have a look-see:

It’s the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, CaliforniaSince it’s a GIF, the password HaightAshbury revealed this:

Each snippet is a scene from the movies Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Platoon, Supernatural, and The Game. Each scene has the song White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane playing in the background:

Jason confirms it’s a mix 3-pack of artists from the 1960’s, with a second hint coming sometime this weekend :-O

What could the other artists be? The authors at The Riff Repeater have a few ideas:

Elliott’s Pick: Simon & Garfunkel – Mrs. Robinson

Would be cool to get some 60’s Folk music from them in the game, and yes… I’d rather have this song than Sound of Silence.

Daniel’s Pick: The Guess Who – Undun

As a Clevelander (#allin216), two radio stations have been in regular rotation on the car radio for many years: Classic Rock 98.5 and 107.3 The Wave (the Cleveland Jazz Fusion/Smooth Jazz Station). As such, I am one major sucker for Jazz Fusion, and this popular track from 1969 by the Guess Who comes pretty darn close to fulfilling a dream I’ve had of finally having Jazz guitar on Rocksmith. Just listen to those chords and that bassline.

Oscar’s Pick: The Lovin’ Spoonful – Summer in the City

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N4FAwvvWVbg

It’s no secret how big of a fan I am of The Lovin’ Spoonful, and this sweltering hot summer is the perfect time to bring arguably their most well-known song to the game. It’s a classic 60s rock song with some great tones and it’d be the perfect way to get one of the best groups ever in a rhythm game at last.

Ted’s Pick: Buffalo Springfield – For What It’s Worth

Stop look, what’s that sound everybody wants this song in now


 

There you have it, Rocksmith fans, what hits from the 1960s would you like to see come to Rocksmith? Let us know in the comments below! (and you-know-who doesn’t count)

Beatles -- probably never going to happen

Yup, not sure why you’d suggest it anyway though

Because you asked “what other two songs are you hoping to see?”
Anything from the Beatles. But hey, you’re cool.

The Beatles are never coming to games again

July 16, 2016 12:29 am

Wild Thing -- the Troggs
For What It’s Worth -- Buffalo Springfield

July 15, 2016 11:34 pm

I wouldn’t mind some more Stones. The Monkees would be cool too. They were as big as the Beatles.

July 15, 2016 9:41 pm

Run Away: Del Shannon. Cinnamon Girl: Neil Young. Nick Drake: Riverman. Leader of the Pack: Shangri-Las

July 16, 2016 4:08 am

Mamas and the Papas, Steppenwolf!

July 15, 2016 8:38 pm

Bit of 60s will be nice for a change. I can dig it.

July 15, 2016 11:10 pm

More Doors, perhaps?
Would love some more CCR as well.

July 15, 2016 9:43 pm

Hopefully for what it’s worth!!

We shall see. I like the 60’s a bunch…it was like grunge round 1. Seriously so much could be in there I can not speculate. I know everyone wants doors and Hendrix. I want more Creedence, Steppenwolf, and The Byrds would be nice. Of course Cream…but if we get that I would expect them to release the earlier Clapton stuff from RS 1. It was hard to keep my console from locking up in RS 2012.

Clapton wasn’t on RS2014 due to licensing issues for his songs

Awesome so far. Hopefully this means the doors 3 pack is coming soon. Peace frog, Maggie M’Gill, and the end. Since the great artist packs only come in a 3 song pack for some reason.

A friend passed me some early Fleetwood Mac. Did some research and found Peter Green and John McVie left the Bluesbreakers outfit, joined up with Mick Fleetwood and formed the group. Their early work is pretty interesting.

Would be nice to see Rocksmith have some early Fleetwood Mac. English Rose, Mr. Wonderful, and Then Play On are all pretty good CDs. How about something from that collection. (Already made the request)

I don’t understand the haters around here. Even though I haven’t evon come close to buying all the DLC released this year, Rocksmith has been kicking major ass on the song picks.

If you have the original rock
smith you can play it in that game only. It will not transfer over to 2014 as legacy dlc due to licensing issues.

‘Tales of Brave Ulysses’ would be awesome.

It would also fit into an Acid Trip theme.

I’m in no matter what. Can’t go wrong with 60’s or 70’s packs as far as I’m concerned. I’m a little bummed that “don’t you want somebody to love” wasn’t the song we got from Jefferson airplane though since i requested that one. It would have been much more fun for bass players.

There is so much great music from 1969 alone. It could fill twenty of these packs. If you ask “Why?” as someone did above, you need to go back to school.

Personally, I’d go with Them’s cover of “Baby Please Don’t Go.” Yes, I’ve requested it.

sweet!, should be a fun change-up. I hope “For what its worth 67” makes the cut. Ive wanted a documentary about Jeffersons Airplane and all its incarnations for a long time. I even like the 80s starship, which the critics love to bag on.

i thought The End by The Doors would make for a good song about ancient Rome. “lost in a Roman wilderness of pain”, but it’s probably the confusing time clue.
