Speculation: Bullet For My Valentine debuts on Rocksmith 2014

Hello Rocksmith fans! Next week’s DLC has been revealed and it is definitely on the Top 40 Requested List, although we were wrong, and many of you were probably expecting something more dire.

Oh well, though it looks like a few of you were right!

42 of you folks to be exact, as next week’s DLC is most definitely Bullet For My Valentine!

Let’s take a look at @DanAmrich’s clue shall we?

Confirmed by Dan!

BFMV is a band that is no stranger to music games. Scream Aim Fire appeared on Guitar Hero World Tour (and later on Rock Band)Tears Don’t Fall, and Your Betrayal appeared as Rock Band 3 DLC in May of 2012, Waking The Demon showed up as a DLC single in 2009 for Rock Band 2, and of course their on disc inclusion on the late BandFuse with Tears Don’t Fall.

Not going to lie, aside from making a really stupid vocal video for Scream Aim Fire I have no real affection for this band so your guess is as good as mine to what songs Ubisoft SF has picked (or whether it’s a three, four, or five pack).

I will say though that these dudes are not slouches on Guitar so if you wanted something challenging and not in E Standard, you are probably really happy right now.

Are you excited for MOAR METAL(core)? Or is this the type of metal that you scoff at in your Behemoth shirt as you pass Hot Topic? Let us know!

Can’t believe all the flame wars on here. It really is pathetic. IT’S VIDEO GAME DLC. This band is not really my cup of tea, but they’ve got solid riffs, which is really the biggest deciding factor for me. If I cared at all about singing quality, then I wouldn’t be requesting Slayer songs. This isn’t a karaoke game, this is intended to make you a better guitar player, and songs with challenging guitar parts are going to make you better faster.

On top of that, any band that my wife likes enough to want me to play their songs for her is a winner in my book. Definitely would buy Tears Don’t Fall and Hand of Blood if they’re options.

Can we just take a step back for a second from the argument over why you all hate these guys to appreciate how many Bandfuse artists Rocksmith was able to license? After it went under, I can totally see a bunch of them wanting to back away from this type of game.

Yeah, I would totally back away from somebody offering me money.

Matthew

Most people also don’t like to have their name attached to a sinking ship, and even though that’s certainly not the case with Rocksmith, it’s one of the theorized reasons that Van Halen won’t license their music to the game (because of their Guitar Hero).

For all those who feel the need to complain, whether it be the “this music sucks” or “I’ve never heard of them so they must not be important” type of whiners, do you all realize how you sound from the other end of the computer?
How many of you I wonder, had parents that “trashed” your Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Beatles, and countless other ‘classic’ bands that we worship today?
Have you not realized a lot of you sound the same? You have become those ‘parent types’ that would shame you for your music choices.
I feel bad for those stuck inside their own musical bubble, unwilling to explore the vast ocean of music.
For me, music (many genres) gives me emotions and feelings I can not feel any other way. There is no greater feeling when you hearing something for the first time that send shivers down your spine.
Long live music discovery.

I’m 19 and still think this guys suck, not to say that I am narrow minded, as I like both Lamb of God and Foster the People for example, but IMO the problem is that a “BIG TOP 40 BAND” was next week’s dlc, everyone got their hopes a bit too high and this is far from what Slayer or Dire Straits are.

Acorn-san

Honestly, I can not be bothered to explain to you how faulty your reasoning is… Just no. Oh, god! NO.

jarryd

I honestly think its not that bad, I expected this band to be rubbish and boring. It is acctually something new to me and refreshing. As a metalhead all i hear is: “they suck”, “My dead great grandfather sounds better” or ” this is for fags”. The problem with metalcore or emo music, is that it isnt that except for a few bands IMO, the tone it setted for when it started gave it a bad rep. As a metalhead who listens to death metal, thrash, grindcore and black thrash, I can safely say I like this band and people at least we are getting something a bit challenging. Would you rather get a chord heavy song or something which requires a bit more technique? Remember this game was meant to help you learn to play the guitar or improve on skills. Honestly I was hoping for Slayer but I’m glad it’s these guys, so I could open myself up to a new band.

Really loved their “Poison” album, hope there will be songs from this one, but I’ll take any of their other songs whatever it is. Great guitar parts ! 🙂

Rich
Guest

Ok, Elliot. Maybe glam-death fusion is unfair to death metal. But these guys are indeed hamming to their reflections while trying to play heavy.

Look, the vast majority of us are supremely stoked with the Ubi crew, but this shit is silly. Who the fuck listened to this crap and said, “this sounds legit”?

yes, this style of music appeals to quite a few folks, but this particular band seems to be a product of a producer’s vision as opposed to a group of guys and gals that are actually a band.

These guys make music videos for the uninformed. Do we really need the younger generation so handicapped by off-key singers with poorly-applied eyeliner?

Cool to have this DLC! We need all styles in rocksmith. practicing my vocals! Please listen to Gene! And I spotted the suggestion for Behemoth!! very good idea Riffrepeater!!

Before Rocksmith I just didn’t listen to metal, now I have a reason to hate it. Let’s just call it Metalsmith.

Gene
Guest

I personally like most of the Artists in the Top 40 (not all), but I am not going to bash the people or artists that I don’t like. That is just inconsiderate and rude to others.

I requested several of BFMV’s songs, so I am very happy that they are being released.

It's still top 40
Guest
It's still top 40

A lot of people must be happy about this since it’s top 40. Be happy for people getting their turn. They can’t satisfy every single person every week. Not really my kind of music, but some of these do sound fun to play.

Anyone else starting to get a backlog of songs to learn to play? My RS backlog is starting to look like my steam backlog. 😮

BrotherD
Guest
BrotherD

Totally agree you.
I’m happy they have songs they like and I’m happy I can save few pennies.
I’ve spent a fortune on dlc including stuff I never play.
(Would gladly even delete some of it just to get rid of it but ah well.)
Not enough blues available though and possibly too much metal. But I can’t have it all my way and all dlc is a good thing to have available no matter if I buy it or not.

are you saying that we might not get

Bullet For My Valentine

Funny how everyone is disgusted at this band. Just accept that every artist added isn’t for you, Get over it and move on. No need to add insults against people that like this kind of music, and not to mention completely bashing a certain genre of music just makes you seem like a narrow minded musician.

IZ
Guest
IZ

I don’t think anyone is disgusted with the fact that this band is getting DLC, it’s the ideology behind it being a “Top 40” requested band. To me that doesn’t really sit right. I can think of plenty of other artists that should be requested more than Bullet for my Valentine. Want a quick list? Here you go:

Chuck Berry
Dio
Johnny Cash
Deep Purple
The Who
The Clash
The Grateful Dead
Clapton
The Doors
Radiohead
Sex Pistols
Velvet Underground
Ramones
Cream
The Yardbirds
Elvis
Simon & Garfunkel
Bruce Springsteen

And that’s all just off the top of my head. There are many I probably left out that aren’t on that top 40 list. You would think some of these would get more requests than BfmV but there ya go.. that’s what bugs me. Not that they’re getting DLC. I really don’t care about that because I can skip buying it.

Honky thom

They aren’t going to make up the top 40 list from guesses, and the numbers don’t lie. Lots of people who use Rocksmith requested them. I am personally shocked they are in the top 40 and Motorhead are not, but there’s nothing I can do about that, if people aren’t requesting one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time there is nothing I can do to change that. I’ve put in my requests, that’s all we can do.

Very disappointed! Horrible “music”, I can see the technical challenges but the vocals are so of putting this is definitely a pass. No skin of my nose though. Just finished my DLC Christmas wish list for my wife and I am already close to $400 in the hole.. 😛

Ok. So I watched those clips. It seems someone made a handful of film student shorts and needed a soundtrack made up of technical riffs, amazingly bad vocals, and generally bad songwriting.

I was wrong thinking they were just some generic emo band. These guys, albeit technically proficient, do indeed suck.

Wow. I sort of find myself lamenting blasting all the other glam-death fusion nonsense.

I’m guessing that as we got only a 3 pack for Killswitch Engage, this’ll also be only a 3 pack:
Scream Aim Fire
Tears Don’t Fall
Your Betrayal

Zach

Not that there are many BFMV fans here but here are my picks:
-Tears Don’t Fall
-Tears Don’t Fall (Part 2)
-Hearts Burst Into Fire
-All These Things I Hate (Revolve Around You)
-Your Betrayal

I like them but have kind of grown out of them recently, I haven’t listened to any of their cd’s for a long time now, but it’s good challenging guitar stuff so I’m reasonably pleased, it will be fun to play and is around my level (I think/hope). I still would have preferred any of the others people were suggesting such as Slayer, Dire straits, QOTSA. But not motley crue, they can bugger right off.

Bonza Bloke

Pass for me I’m afraid. I was always surprised to to see BFMV in the to 40 list to be honest. “One of these things is not like the others”.

Still looking forward to Dire Straits at some stage.

hammer1021
Guest
hammer1021

Untill today I had know idea who Dire Straits was, so I you tubed them to see what the big deal was. So after listening to a few of their top listed songs I’m wondering why are they on the top 40 as well.

I am quite satisfied with official BFMV DLC. Hopefully a 5 pack is in order(any confirmation?). The songs posted are great choices. Maybe “All These Things I Hate Revolve Around Me”. Love that one.

Acorn-san

The vocalist has the vocal range of maybe 5 notes. If I feel generous that is. The guy just sounds so off key in every single song I have heard by the band that it hurts my ears for the 10 seconds before I cover them up or hastily click the X button wherever that may be.

Even if the guitarwork is decent, this is a MASSIVE FRIGGEN SKIP.

I have been severely disappointed in the dlc selection for the previous two weeks but my disappointment was intensified by this extremely sucky band.

At least Tom Petty & the Foo have talent.

Zach

I have been very happy happy with The Foo Fighters and BFMV. I am not a fan of Tom Petty, but I’m not bashing him and his band as both of these bands are very successful and popular to their own group of people. Maybe this week you can get a pack you didn’t get yet or save your money.

Casey
Guest

I will definitely be buying this pack. I would have been happy with QOTSA, RATM(first album), or Dire Straits, too. But I’m glad to see more of the top 40 making it into the game.
