Song Speculation: Variety Pack V bring Stooges and Marcy Playground to Rocksmith Remastered

iggy5_full

Hello, Rocksmith fans! Are you up for even more variety? Let’s take a look at both of @ubiparadise’s clues.

The first one:

variety-pack-v-clue1

variety-pack-v-clue2

variety-pack-v-clue3

A cool, low-down alternative hit from the late 90’s. But then we had the second clue, which took much longer to solve:

variety-pack-v-clue4

variety-pack-v-clue5

variety-pack-v-clue6

Notice the jump from post 61 to 207?

Boy, Ubisoft SF is on a roll addressing the lack of good old-fashioned non-pop-punk punk in Rocksmith! Bad Religion, pre-London Calling Clash, Misfits, and now the biggest innovator of punk alongside Pete Townshend: there’s a good reason why both are called “Godfather of Punk.”

So what else could we expect in this pack? The authors of Riff Repeater have some ideas:

Dokken: Dream Warriors

A pick courtesy of Oscar: While we’re maybe a day late for this song to be perfect, Dream Warriors is still one of the best hard rock songs ever. Featuring totally amazing guitar work, this song would be perfect for Rocksmith. Just remember, it ain’t rockin’ if it ain’t Dokken!

Jimmy Eat World: The Middle

A pick courtesy of Stephen Fenton: sure, we’ve been ragging on about this song in previous speculation articles, but when will we finally see the day when the representational song of the emo-pop era makes its way to Rocksmith?

Those are our picks, what songs would you like to see arrive next week? Let us know in the comments below!

UPDATE:

I think there’s maybe *one* other Steel Panther song that could end up in Rocksmith

Love these guys, I’m so pumped that we’re getting Steel Panther. I never thought any of their music would make it into the game because of their explicit nature. I’ve seen them several times live and they rock! Even my wife (who usually hates live music) thought they were great. Girl from Oklahoma is her favourite song, lol!

I would buy a 10 pack of iggy and stooges. That Marcy playground song was so played out it will be hard to hear it again

I’m going to randomly guess Mastodon -- High Road and Son Seals -- Good Woman Bad

Guest

There will probably be another metal song?
