Speculation: More Foo Fighters are coming to Rocksmith 2014

Foo Fighters

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

It’s Friday, and the clue has been cracked. It looks like we’ll be getting our first repeat DLC after all!
It started when Dan posted this very familiar image:

11.14 clue joke

Which happens to be the same image used from last week’s DLC clue. The password tompetty revealed another GIF image hidden within:

DLC 11.14 clue

MentokMindTkr correctly identified it as the actor Michael McKeon from the movie Clue, which Jayrocks cracked using mrgreen as the password. This revealed yet another image:

11.14 clue

Those mysterious symbols on the sides turned out to be the Pigpen cipherwhich KyleMRob translated as “Pick Two” along the top left and “Name The Band” along the bottom right.

Which two weapons? Obviously the Rope and the Monkey Wrench of course, which Dan confirmed.

Yep, it’s Foo Fighters! This comes as particularly surprising since we’ve already gotten a Foo Fighters 5-pack back in December of 2012, making this Rocksmith’s very first repeat DLC pack.

Here’s what we’d like to see in addition to the confirmed tracks:

Are you excited for more Foo Fighters? Could we expect to see more repeat DLC packs in the future? Could this possibly coincide with the release of their new album and HBO television documentary series, Sonic Highways? Let us know in the comments below!

UPDATE:

*taps nose* UPDATE THE SECOND:

4/5!

well it looks like we can cross Monkey Wrench off on the list of Guitar Hero 2 songs in Rocksmith. seriously though more GH2 tracks would be awesome (even though we have so many already)

The Pretender confirmed! awesome! That was the one i really missed the first time round.

If they have any from the new album I dearly hope its Outside, great bass line.

Great news! hopefully like all the dlc I bought and the import pack -- this too will be available on the PS4 before Christmas 2016!!!!!! 😡 😕

I think the last songs will be up, on psn, in June 2018… So soon, you ask? Yes, I have faith in Sony… Oh, and what is it again, the entire month of December where they don’t update their store, or is it just two entire god damn weeks…

Which 4 songs are confirmed? It’s only 3 confirmed so far.

Elliott

Monkey Wrench
Rope
Learn To Fly
The Pretender

HA!
Guest
HA!

Are we certain it’s “Learn to Fly” and not “Breakdown?” Either seem to fit the Tom Petty cover clue.

Jim
Guest
Jim

Isn’t Breakdown actually a Petty cover? The clue is that the song ISN’T a Tom Petty cover after all.

Elliott
Admin

Guess we’ll find out soon enough

HA!
Guest
HA!

Nope, they are two different songs. I like both, so win-win in my opinion haha

Yusuke
Guest
Yusuke

Foo Fighters song is BreakOUT, isnt it?

HA!
Guest
HA!

Yup…you’re right. My bad :/

It’s Learn to Fly then!

Huh?
Guest
Huh?

Something from nothing.

By the way, I have just watched the Sonic Highways episode 1 and 2, and it’s a really brilliant show! I recommend it to everybody, not only Foo fans..
A lot of great musicians talking, awesome video footages and Foo’s members memories help you to understand how music evolves, how different scenes emerge, and how you record an album, focusing on one city, one studio and one song of the new album per episode..

Very instructive and fun!

could we see any Unearth,All that Remains,Shadows Falls,August burns red or Darkest hour on DLC’s for rocksmith 2014 in the near Feature?

Elliott

only way is to request them http://bit.ly/rsrequest

there’s a tweet from Paul that ATR is coming eventually though.

Breaking Kitler has confirmed the Pretender. I verified as per UbiSoft SF tweet and posted a pic.

I’m a bit surprised repeat artist DLC are beginning so soon..
there are so much bands we are still waiting to see coming as DLC.
I really hope there won’t be pack .02 too often for now..

and, I’m starting to think the “megahits” DLC for fall and winter, won’t be the kind of things I’m hoping for.
I hope for more bands with their own style and sounds, and less radio friendly..

There’s only 3 DLC packs for 2014 we don’t know yet. Given this 2nd Foo Fighters pack and Jimi Hendrix on the 16th December, only 25th November, 2nd and 9th December are unknown.

Acorn-san

So… Breakdown confirmed?

Grumble Volcano

Not necessarily, could be Learn to Fly (Learning to Fly is the Tom Petty song)

Foo Fighters good but more Nirvana would be better.

WonderWaage

I think we were promised some Utero tracks by Paul Cross… But I’m not sure I remember that correctly… Elliot?

Grumble Volcano
Guest
Grumble Volcano

We were but for summer and that’s been over for a while. Maybe it ended up like the Coheed pack.

dougybongy
Guest

I’m still waiting for that in utero pack too.. but if it’s for “rape me” and “pennyroyal tea”, it’s not worth it..

Hopefully they put Stacked Actors !!!

Floder

We want White Limo for god sake

Aly

What about “These Days” ? I’d love that one.

Grumble Volcano

I think the other 3 songs will be:
Learn to Fly
The Pretender
All My Life

I could fight a little more foo I guess. How many songs have Dave Grohl in them now? Nirvana, Foo, Them Crooked Vultures right? And did he drum in Go With the Flow? I know he did on the Queens of the Stone Age song I want to see on here.

mr_muddle
Guest
mr_muddle

he did the whole “songs for the deaf” album also plays drums of the QOTSA latest album of which there is a dlc for (My God is the Sun)

Shaun

I would buy 3 Foo packs 🙂

This.

WonderWaage

I have bought lots of backs, and an entire album of Foo on Rock Band, and the trend will continue on Rocksmith

Shaun

I am super excited!

Klagnutts

Hope DOA is in the pack.

Zombie Client

Not super excited about this pack. Guess I was too busy with NIN, Type O Negative, and Front Line Assembly when the Foo Fighters first came on the scene, as a result the first song pack was plenty for me. Would kill for some FLA, Type O, Sisters of Mercy, or Hypocrisy!

HA!
Guest
HA!

I’d be ecstatic over any of these:

The Pretender
Let it Die
All My Life
Baker Street (fun cover, imo)
Something from Nothing (I expect a new track 100%)

Chris
Guest
Chris

I’m hoping for hey Johnny park amd all my life. I wish they would repeat pearl Jam and rush packs

HA!
Guest
HA!

I’m down for both! There’s not much Pearl Jam in the game, so I’m guessing that’s more likely.

Ben
Guest
Ben

I’d love some Let It Die, but I’m in no matter what.

Ashley
Guest

I think a Dio pack would be pretty good as he is a metal legend.

Noname Rocker
Guest

It would be

The Last In Line
Stand Up And Shout
Hollywood Black
Rainbow In The Dark
I Speed At Night

Ashley
Guest
Ashley

Hopefully the pretender and rope will be in it. Hopefully they are working on a 2nd Iron maiden pack or a Metallica pack.

Honky thom

A band repeat, when there are so many we still haven’t had yet? I can see why, they are such a popular band, and they have the new album recently released, but there are still so many I would want before this, myself. SO many. Oh well, a lot of people are/will be happy, so good luck to them.

Week 9, still waiting for a challenge in the bass department…

Gabivad
Guest
Gabivad

Pretty cool, I’m guessing there will be one from the latest album, and I would love Stacked Actors, it’s my favourite from them ^^

Redhed
Guest
Redhed

Rope and The Pretender get me going. So much rock band/guitar hero/pro guitar history in those songs, along with the fact that those songs are fucking incredible. Anything else is gravy.

Acorn-san
Guest
Acorn-san

I`m really hoping for All My Life. Always down for some more Foo Fighters anyway.

Noname Rocker
Guest
Noname Rocker

Also, we could use more Judas Priest.

Hellbent For Leather
The Helion/Electric Eye
Redeemer Of Souls

Aces High
Guest
Aces High

Beautiful. Make it a 12 pack, though, or at least a 5 pack. There’s more than enough variety.

Noname Rocker
Guest
Noname Rocker

Screaming For Vengeance
Rapid Fire
Heading Out To The Highway
Leather Rebel
Dissident Aggressor
Freewheel Burning
Victim Of Changes
Angel
Halls Of Valhalla

There you go!

Bob
Guest

I would be very interested in seeing a track or two from Sonic Highways in there. If that’s the case, I would really want it to succeed, demonstrate the possibility of cross-promotion, and hopefully give us higher-profile new release DLC in the future.

no thank u we need some NIN, Eagles, and Primus not more foo fighters

Elliott

While I agree with all three, more foo fighters is cool as well 🙂

Foo Fighters is one of those bands for me where I can understand why people like them, but to me have always seemed a little too radio friendly and middle of the road. Which sucks. They’re a band I’ve always wanted to like but have just never ever clicked for me. It’s too bad really, because Dave Grohl is one of the most interesting, kick-ass dudes currently playing rock & roll today.

Sign me up for some Probot DLC any day of the week though! :mrgreen:

dougybongy
Guest
dougybongy

i agree with you..
I was a nirvana fan, so after kurt’s death, I was waiting a lot from the foo fighters.. when their first album came out, i bought it, and listen to it, trying to convince me I liked it..
but nope… only a couple of songs are to save, the others are as you say : radio friendly and nothing subversive…

Nick
Guest
Nick

Agree with you totally. I bought their first CD way back when, because I thought it was something I should be into (and maybe out of sympathy a little). It had a couple of okay tracks, but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to it start to finish.

Full respect to them, but they’re just not for me.

Having said all that, Everlong is great, but I’ve already got that one. 😆

Erik

Are you excited for more Foo Fighters?

No.

Rope
Monkey Wrench
All My Life
The Pretender
Stacked Actors

Hey Elliott, we should do an opinion article called, “Opinion: Bands That Should Get Another DLC Pack.”

Elliott
Admin

I actually think Daniel was working on that before this news even broke :mrgreen:

Noname Rocker
Guest
Noname Rocker

Queen

Rock Band has almost thirty of their songs. Rocksmith has six.

I would like to see Another One Bites The Dust, Tie Your Mother Down, 39, Princes Of The Universe, and Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

Thomaz
Guest
Thomaz

i like the foo fighters, but their songs are too bare bones, no riffs or solos, wasted opportunity for a sublime pack 02 😆 😆

Jim
Guest
Jim

You know I suspected for a while that Foo Fighters would probably be the first to get a pack 02. Their history of being very music game friendly, the number of radio hits they’ve had in the last couple of decades that one pack doesn’t begin to cover, and the fact that their first pack is relatively old.

The 2 confirmed songs make plenty of sense, and I won’t get my hopes up for deep cuts or lesser hits, so I’ll predict The Pretender, Learn to Fly, and something from the new album.

Rich
Guest
Rich

Very cool! Even cooler that some other much-loved artists will get additional packs down the line. Always room for more Rush 😉

Matthew

really hope that Let it die is included.

That would be a great pick! I hope so too!

I hope so three!
