Speculation: Linkin Park is one step closer to Rocksmith

Greetings Rocksmith fans, and happy new year!

@DanAmrich posted a clue yesterday evening and after 27 pages, we have our answer!

Each line decrypted into a different phrase which led to a number

  • 1- THIRD HEEGNER NUMBER
  • 2- SUM OF ONE OF EACH OF UNITED STATES COINS LESS THAN A DOLLAR
  • 3- FIRST SQUARE WHERE THE DIGITS ARE SQUARES
  • 4- THE FIRST THREE POSITIVE INTEGERS CUBED THEN ADDED
  • 5- CHARGEN PORT
  • 6- FIRST INTEGER RECIPROCAL WITH INFINITELY REPEATING SEXAGESIMAL REPRESENTATION
  • 1 — 3
  • 2 — 91
  • 3 — 49
  • 4 — 36
  • 5 — 19
  • 6 — 7

As well hidden on the picture was “001-118” which referred to the atomic numbers in the Periodic Table of Elements.

  • li – 3
  • pa – 91
  • in – 49
  • k – 19
  • n – 7
  • rk – 36

Yup, it’s my favourite band, Linkin Park!

 No stranger to music games, Linkin Park was an on disc song on Guitar Hero World Tour with What I’ve Done, later reappearing in Warriors of Rock with Bleed It Out and even received a DLC 6 Pack of songs from their 2010 album, A Thousand Suns. Rock Band features One Step Closer on Rock Band 2  and ten songs offered through two DLC packs! Heck, they even appeared on DJ Hero 2 DLC!

While not the most guitar/bass driven band, the people have spoken and with this release @UbisoftStudioSF continues their Top 40 Requested Artist streak!

Here are the top 10 Linkin Park songs from @Spotify, what song do you think is most likely to appear next week? Not on the list? Add your own in the poll below!

Are you excited for Linkin Park? Or will this be the first “skip” of 2015. Let us know!

Linkin Park sucks. While that’s my opinion, I just don’t hear any noteworthy riffs, solos or useful techniques in their songs. Based on that criteria, its a bad choice for Rocksmith and I’ll be passing.

Although I do not think they suck, I think they are easy to listen to, I have to agree on the noteworthy riffs. Thinking back to what I listened of Linkin Park, I can’t remember one time being taken away by the instrumentation, just remember the vocals.

Hope that “Papercut” is on the pack. Probably the only song I’d buy from them. Not really the most guitar-driven band.

That’s no reason why we should be pessimistic about them. We ended 2014 with 5 artists in a row off that top 40. I think one day we will see some of these bands in the game.

Out of the current 6 artist top 40 streak, 2 have over 30 songs in Rock Band, 4 have over 10 songs in Rock Band, and all 6 have 4 or more songs in Rock Band.

There will be some wine for the choices of the songs, definitely.
Hope for “a lot” from Hybrid Theory
Papercut, One Step Closer & Points of Authority will be great.

How are they a “commercial” band? They were only briefly popular in the mid-2000’s.

I don’t know. I think “popular” might be overstating it a tad.

I just check their sales over the years, it’s quite astonishing to see that Hybrid Theory has been sold 27M and Livings Things only 2,5M

They’re still popular, but not as they used to be.

You know I kid. As always, congrats to those who like ’em. It just falls into the inevitable 20% or so of DLC I won’t be getting.

Hard to like it all. Thanks again to Rocksmith for putting new content out there every week.

For me “commercial” mean they are made to make money, but it not necessary means they manage to do it, even with a big promotion plan.

Yes. Calling them a “band,” and let alone a boy band makes you snobby.

I hope there is a decent amount of stuff from Hybrid Theory. I think I’m aware that they continued as a band after that album, but over here in the UK their career was existent.

I really hope they mostly pick songs based on guitar parts and not just on popularity. I’d like to see:

A Place For My Head
One Step Closer
Rebellion
Guilty All the Same
War

But I’m not getting my hopes up.

i’m pretty sure linkin park has easy songs in general i really don’t hear anything too complex . They have a big processed sound but its not because of guitars or bass parts

HA!
HA!
January 3, 2015 8:36 pm

They do have some fun guitar parts, though I am crossing all my fingers and toes that What I’ve Done IS NOT part of this pack. Fun to listen to but boring to play.

And calm down haters. They’re a Top 40 band, and they were up higher than BFMV for sure.

Even though I’m a fan of Linkin Park, especially their more recent albums, I’ll admit that I’ve never noticed a huge focus on guitar by them. I would say that if anything, a lot of the best tracks to pick now from a guitarist’s standpoint would be off of The Hunting Party.
