Speculation: Hit Singles II brings Wolfmother to Rocksmith

Hello Rocksmith fans!

The clue has been posted and solved and it appears we are getting another Hit Singles Song Pack!

Check out @DanAmrich’s clue:

CPMcFisticuffs was quick to notice that the image is called “Strangers in the Night” by matthewfoxxphotos.

RollingStone222 maintains their streak of solving everything

Nice photoshop work (auto levels we mean).

The ISBNs pointed towards…

Nice work m.pr!

I think you know where Dan is heading with this but if not..

It’s Joker and the Thief by Australian rock band, Wolfmother!

Since the other three tracks could be literally anything, we aren’t going to raise expectations with pointless speculation, instead we leave it up to our readers to speculate on their own as to what may come next Tuesday.

Are you excited for Wolfmother though? I know someone that isn’t!

Uh, could this mean Chickenfoot? Or maybe Fly by Night since it was one of Rush’s hits. Yeah, probably Rush since I don’t think Chickenfoot had a hit. And who names their band Chickenfoot anyhow?! Well, Sammy Hagar did and he was also in Van Halen. The worst part of the band, but would it be close enough to placate the masses?? We’ll find out soon enough! Stay tuned (in e flat) Rocksmithers.

OK Elliot, better idea than birds…grungee mega pack. Pearl Jam, more Soundgarden, STP and more AIC…about 20 songs…the pack could be about 50 bucks. What do you think? All these bands were already in and I bet they wouldn’t mind a bit more exposure to the younger crowd. Meat Puppets could be in there too. Wouldn’t mind Sam and Backwater and comin Down from the Mountain. Just trying to Help as always.

I love wolfmother but instead of being excited I’m bummed because we’re not getting a pack. I’d rather have woman, sundial, pilgrim or white unicorn instead of joker and thief

i hope the other 3 songs are cool but judging on the last couple of months i am expecting a full bucket of aids where the interesting DLC used to go. Wolfmother is painfully derivative, the kind of crap you hear behind sports highlights

for someone who uses a word like derivative, you would expect something a little more classy then describing future dlc as a bucket of aids…charming

Just throwing this out there -- Saxon -- 747 (Strangers in the Night). Great little guitar lead and would slide in nicely with a singles pack.

I think we should get the Yardbirds. Seriously. I want some yardbirds and some Birds birds. The Byrds would be nice and the yardbirds. And the Eagles. Hmm. I think I just made Ubi some money if they could cough up a giant aviary pack.

With wolfmother already being in the pack and the best band is 95% of the time the hint… The rest of this pack is bound to disappoint .. So don’t get your hopes up fellas…?

I’ve got nothing against Mike as an artist or performer. I saw FNM a couple years ago and thought they were fantastic. That being said, he always comes off like a self-righteous prick, and no amount of career success will ever counter that fact… and so I stand by my original comment.

Not excited, not disappointed. I like Wolfmother ok. Ok the other 3 will be hit singles, so I shall effort a guess. Barely Breathing by Duncan Sheik…Burning Down the House by Talking Heads and Better Man by Pearl Jam or Spin the Black Circle. Money by Pink Floyd could be in the cards….wait what….Cindy Lauper? No nevermind. Oh wait Nevermind….dumb by Nirvana and All Apologies….yep. Can you feel some Seattle before it was communist coming on? Nice. I know I guessed too much but No one reminded me to stop and I can barely count to 3 on any on my toe.

Is there a theme with this pack?

If not are we just guessing somewhere within the realm of Mozart, Sousa, Robert Johnson, Mahalia Jackson, Lightning Hopkins, James Brown, Funkadelic, Isaac Hayes, and Bob Marley, to John Williams, Aaron Copland, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Kirk Franklin, ZZ Top, Prince, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Wu-Tang Clan, and Lauryn Hill?

I mean the field is too wide. Dr. Dre has some very good basslines played by Mike Elizondo. Andre Crouch and Edwin Hawkins have some good basslines from the 1970s era gospel music. Van Halen is on Rockband now. Still missing some stuff from Heart, Def Leppard, and No Doubt.

What about Stetsasonic -- Talking All That Jazz? (By the way, has Jazz even been represented yet?)

Danzig- Mother, Monster Magnet- Space Lord. Whitesnake- Still of the night. Reasonable yet awesome expectations I think.

This is too creepy! I was actually thinking to myself just yesterday that the lack of representation from Wolfmother was surprising, especially since ‘Joker and the Thief’ is still used literally everywhere… it’s like the Samuel L. Jackson of songs.

Definitely buying the Wolfmother song, even if I wish it were a full pack of theirs. Cosmic Egg is a great album, I would take any song from it. Who knows what else we will get. These packs always surprise me by how random they are.

I just listened to the Mike Patton rant. Is it just me or does he sound like a lot of the whiners on here who complain about the DLC every week? I’m hearing it Mike Patton and guess what, I’ll be buying it, lol!

Do you think that’s what they were thinking when they recorded it or is it just coincidence that their music is greatly influenced by the music they love? And since when is listening to Led Zeppelin a bad thing? We’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one 😉

Personally I love the sound of the heavy 70’s classic rock. I like other newish bands who have a similar style like Scorpion Child and Rival Sons too. I will agree with you, Woman is not my favourite song of theirs, but it’s still better than a lot of the new rock that’s coming out these days. Regardless of our differing opinion, I still respect yours. I love this site and I love this game. It’s got me to pick up a guitar again after 30 years and it feels great.
