Greetings, Rocksmith fans!
Today’s clue has been solved, and while one artist has been confirmed in this mixed singles four-pack, we have few clues to go on as to what the other three are.
That’s right, the highly-requested Edgar Winter instrumental Frankenstein, whose music video possibly invented the act of wearing of a keyboard around one’s neck like a guitar, is coming to Rocksmith in the first non-themed DLC pack of highly requested Singles. If you thought the Love Singles hint was vague, get ready to start guessing all weekend for this one, although Dan did mention one other hint:
Given the hundreds of artists to choose from, it’s not likely any one of us will pick the correct one, much less the correct song. And since this is a compilation of singles that were all highly requested, your guess is quite literally as good as mine as to what they are.
So what are we going to see next Tuesday? Since we will be seeing one song from an artist already represented in-game, perhaps the Riff Repeater editors could give their own ideas:
The Who: Eminence Front
Of course it isn’t that likely, but it’s one of my most requested songs on Rocksmith. With one of John Entwistle’s best basslines on offer and an intricate guitar line courtesy of Townsend (both live and on the studio version), I was hoping this song would come with the original Who pack from last year. Here’s hoping for a second Who pack in the near future if this isn’t the case.
Silversun Pickups: Lazy Eye
One of the alt rock favorite’s more popular tracks, the Silversun Pickups have been missing in action since the first Rocksmith title. While the band has been featured in many music games over the years, both as disc songs and DLC, they’ve stayed suspiciously away from the real guitar limelight. Could this be the first we see of them again, or will be waiting for a whole pack?
The Clash: Rock the Casbah
I have a degree in Rocksmithology that I made in Photoshop and printed off myself so it is in my expert opinion that the Clash pack we received back in 2013 was criminally only made up of 3 songs. Great songs, sure, but any fan of the band knows it only scratched the surface of what they have to offer. So why not offer up a single, the band’s highest charting single mind you, to tide us over until the inevitable Clash #02 pack? I also suggest Rebel Yell by Billy Idol or Le Freak by Chic as the single but was limited to only one pick. Except I’ve sort of bent that rule by mentioning them here. Don’t tell Elliot!
Jimi Hendrix: All Along The Watchtower
David Bowie: Ziggy Stardust
Will @UbisoftStudioSF chart the synth?
What 70’s-80’s singles are you expecting from next week’s DLC? Now that we’ve taken care of something monstrous, what could the two unusual animals be? Let us know!
