Speculation: Godsmack to make their Rocksmith 2014 debut

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Hope you enjoyed the variety of last week’s Classic Singles because if you aren’t a 90s kid you are probably going to be skipping next week.

This week Dan Amrich once again gave us a bit of a puzzle to work on, although it was figured out on the first day, the picture completely stumped us. Thanks @DanAmrich 😛

When this picture was downloaded the properties listed two important bits of information

title: a lateral supernova

subject: 713/6773

“A Lateral Supernova” is an anagram for the lead singer of Godsmack’s name: Salvatore Paul Erna

“713/6773” relates to his placement in a WSOP main event:

Sully Erna participated in the 2006 World Series of Poker main event in which he made a brief appearance on the ESPN broadcast of the event; it was mentioned that he was the last of the celebrity entries. He finished in 713th out of 8,773 earning him $17,730.[16]

As for the picture:

It’s a screen grab from Godsmack’s 2010 single, Cryin’ Like a Bitch! which is confirmed for a 5 Pack next week!

What other four songs could we expect in the Godsmack Song Pack? Well here are some of our picks!

The only Godsmack song in both Guitar Hero and Rock Band

Liberate this single from the horrors of PowerGig! (Confirmed)

The angsty teen anthem that put them on the map (at my high school at least)

More of an atmospheric song than anything else, but a cool one nonetheless.

Are you excited for 5 hits from Godsmack, or is this the type of cookie cutter nu-metal alt-metal band you change the station on? Let us know in the comments below!

I like how much variety Rocksmith tends to cover but it would be great to get some songs that focus on some different guitar and bass techniques. I'm not super familiar with Godsmack so maybe it will cover some new ground.

I would love to see some great bass line type songs from bands like Rancid, or maybe some guitar work from Guster.

Can this moron write one post that makes sense? She claims she was in high school, but writes at the third grade level. Astonishing.

Wait, so you're calling Godsmack real rock music and all of the classic rock music crap? You must be a metal elitist.

Moon Baby would be a nice addition. Same with stuff like Realign, Keep Away and probably my favourite Godsmack song, Releasing the Demons. Oh man, that would be awesome!

Straight Outta Line would be fun too. Why? I don’t need a reason!

Sorry Cake, Rise Against and the other 5-packer bands but I think Godsmack just took my last $12!

I remember when Godsmack filmed their video “awake” down the street from where I live, at the old mansfield reformatory (prison). I’ll probably pick up this pack. Reminds me of some childhood memories

I am STOKED. Being a 90s kid (though not necessary), this was a constant on my workout playlists. It might not be anything overly hard, but I find it annoying with people saying “blah blah it all sounds the same.” People who say that kind of stuff aren’t generally fans of the band and just want to quickly dismiss them. For instance…all the Black Keys’ music sounds the same to me (see what I did there?). But really, they’ve jumped head-first into “overrated” territory. Anyway, this is an instant buy for me. I’d like:

Cryin’ Like a Bitch
Love-Hate-Sex-Pain (love the riff!)
Vampires and/or The Oracle (fun instrumentals)
Awake
Moon Baby
Straight Out of Line

Just personal taste. The “man in a box” was stuck there because he sounded whiny and distorted. I never liked either band, so I especially cringe at bands that sound like them.

I hope one of them isn’t the new single “1000 Hp”. It hasn’t grown on me yet. It won’t stop me from buying the pack though. “Sick of Life” would be my pick.

no, I don’t think they are nu-metal either. If anything they remind me of the early 90’s band Helmet. That was a killer band too.
I just did a search, apparently Helmet were a big influence on them. This explains it.

a definite buy for me. I never thought Godsmack was grouped with nu metal
I thought the genre nu-metal had rap elements in it.
