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.

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…

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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!

November 15, 2014 10:26 am

I’d be ecstatic over any of these:

Let it Die

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…

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.

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.

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:

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…

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. 😆

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

Jim

November 14, 2014 10:53 pm

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.
