Speculation: Bon Jovi are wanted (WAAAHN-TEEEH-ED) on Rocksmith 2014!

bon-jovi-80s-costume

Greetings, Rocksmith fans!

Well, we were promised even more mega-hits to close out the year, and boy, did we get some! Mega-hit 80’s hair metal band Bon Jovi is finally coming to Rocksmith!

Friday’s clue was quite a doosy, with twelve different images posted via the forums, 3 different twitter accounts, and reddit:

And plenty more where those came from.

Aggyro via reddit managed to combine the images to form this:

Which looks an awful lot like this, as pointed out by JakeSeatleX19:

Bon Jovi Clue

 

This is fantastic news, as Bon Jovi is yet another Top 40 most-requested Rocksmith artist. Bon Jovi as a band have actually been going through some tough times as of late with the recent departure of their longtime lead guitarist and co-songwriter Richie Sambora.

So what songs should we expect? Let’s get the rather obvious inclusions no Bon Jovi DLC pack should be without out of the way:

And as always, Bon Jovi wouldn’t be complete without at least one of their many, many cheesy rock power ballads:

I’m honestly surprised they aren’t getting a twelve-pack like Jimi Hendrix. So what do you think, Rockmsith fans? Are you overjoyed to learn that Bon Jovi is finally coming to Rocksmith, or are they just soulless commercial bubblegum rock? Leave a comment below!

Hair band awesomeness. My inner 80’s child loves this. My wallet is a little more perturbed.

I saw a chart of songs by decade in RS / RS 2014 several months ago (was it here?), and I was sad to see the 80’s were badly under-represented. I’ve been glad to see the Ubisoft crew have been busily correcting that imbalance over the last several months. Bon Jovi, the “Arena Rock” pack, Duran Duran, Tom Petty, Foreigner (guess that was mostly late 70s), the “Yacht Rock” pack… anyway. I’m a lot happier now. Still got plenty I’d wanna see (Dire Straits, Van Halen, GNR, ZZ Top, Steve Ray Vaughan, etc…) but I’m not feeling so neglected now.

Now… dunno if they’d be poor sellers, but I’d love to see more classic blues & rockabilly. Going back before my time… 🙂

So, you’re going to make an ageist remark just because your bands aren’t in the game. You call Bon Jovi an old washed up rock band garbage and yet you want Candlebox and a bunch of death metal. Don’t make me laugh.

You could request those bands;

Then they can make a; “Bands nobody has heard of” pack
or a; “Not anywhere near the top 40 requested bands” pack.

They might also call it the;
“Songs nobody is going to buy” pack. :kissing_heart:

Interesting….Rock Band 3 promotion[edit]

Twelve songs from the Greatest Hits album were also released as downloadable content for music video game Rock Band 3 on November 9, 2010.[4] The pack features every song from the first disc of the North American album except “Born to Be My Baby”, “Always”, “What Do You Got?” and “No Apologies”. It also includes the full-length version of “Lay Your Hands on Me”, and not the radio edit featured on Greatest Hits.

Disc 1

No.

3. “It’s My Life” Bon Jovi, Sambora, Max Martin Crush 3:44

SingStar also released Bon Jovi DLC in the form of two 5 packs:

*Ballads*
-- Always
-- Wanted Dead or Alive
-- I’ll Be There for You
-- Bed of Roses
-- Blaze of Glory

*Rock*
-- Livin’ on a Prayer
-- It’s My Life
-- We Weren’t Born to Follow
-- You Give Love a Bad Name
-- Born to Be My Baby

What I’m most interested in is whether the RS release is just the obvious 3 pack (1,2 and 5) or whether there’s some surprises like with the BFMV pack including Hand of Blood.

You would think they would all be from the greatest hits album as it was the cover used in the clue. But I don’t think “Dead or Alive” is on there which seems like a very likely addition given it has been used in a game in the past.

I’m not a big fan of Bon Jovi past the 80s, but this should be some fun guitar to play!

While I hope that we get all the older, classic hits, I have a sad feeling that one of their more modern crap songs is coming.

And @Scoobs, I also would LOVE “Raise Your Hands!” Fun song, and it always makes me think of the movie Spaceballs haha

Finally, a pack I can feel good about skipping. The last few packs have all been too good, and I couldn’t resist buying a couple songs from each. Was getting a little expensive.

I personally have never found Bon Jovi to be good, and I really don’t think they have a single song I like. Hope all you BJ fans have fun with this one and you all get the songs you want!
