Speculation: No Doubt makes their Rocksmith Debut

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

Time for bassists to get excited as yesterday’s hint confirmed that the Californian, Ska-punkish, quartet No Doubt will be making their Rocksmith debut next Tuesday!

Here’s how the clue solving went down:

 

Hidden in the post containing this image was this link

Which lead them to Rail Fence Cipher

The decoded text?

from*the*third*sixteen*at*one

@notthatbrad was able to crack the code (he meant “third single” by the way).

What about the Apple Core? Well, little known fact…

So we know one track is Don’t Speak, what about the other two?

I think the picks are fairly obvious but I really hope that one of them is Spiderwebs.

Yeah, yeah I know you are going to say it’s going to be Ex-Girlfriend, Excuse Me Mr. or Just A Girlbut I can dream right?

Are you excited for No Doubt? Are you somehow a bassist that doesn’t want to play songs by this band? Let us know!

Welcome to Dudsville…

No Doubt has so many more songs with better riffs than Don’t Speak & Ex-Girlfriend
and this should have been a 5 pack to support the above 2 songs.
as all of a sudden its looking like I may be getting only 1 song in this 3 pack

I'll take no doubt this week! I still want some sublime though!!!

Maybe the answer to the DLC blues would be to release 5 different songs from 5 different genres each week. The odds of at least one of the songs hitting the mark would vastly improve.

Until they release sales and download figures, almost all arguments are null and void.

It would be nice to say “No Doubt”?… 16 total downloads?… I told ya so Poprocksmith 2014″.

Replace “No Doubt” with “Billy Talent” if you makes you happier.

And Yacht Rock hammered everyone in that poll, which sorta proves my point. A little something to make everyone happy.

Replace “No Doubt” with “The Libertines”. 🙂

I think they’ve done a pretty job alternating genres, but when they do these band packs, there’s usually just one song (if any) that I want (Amber, Short Skirt, Mountain, etc.).

The joke is, when the Aerosmith pack was announced the day before release, they made it seem like Train Kept a Rollin’ would be in the pack when it was not.

Looks good to me, but I do like 90% of what has been released thus far.
and I agree that Spiderwebs and Sunday morning would be the best ones they could choose.

Man DLC has been awful for so long now, and no end in sight. Nice they threw us a bone with a little variance in the surf stuff and some of the Yacht Rock stuff, but other than that it has been the most banal nonsense for months. Come on.

Here’s a really easy solution, divided into three steps since you clearly need the help:

1) Stop whining
2) Don’t buy it then (feel free to swap 1 and 2)
3) Go pick up some tabs or find them on the internet for songs you are interested in and stop wasting everyone’s time on this site. No one is forcing you to come here and comment, let alone buy any of the DLC.

The sad thing is that I want to spend money to support the game. Every week I have my wallet ready screaming “Just take my money already”.

I’d jump at the chance to fork out $50 for a 5 song pack from AC/DC, Van Halen, Led Zeppelin or Dire Straits.

I have said before, good luck to those people who like the content that’s being released each week. It’s also great to see a weekly release of content. It’s not making my experience playing the songs I purchased already any worse, so I shouldn’t complain. But every week it feels like I’m getting kicked in the teeth, even though others are happy about what they are getting. Its hard not to feel bad and want to voice that opinion.

I was supporting the sentiment though. It’s something about the process. You get your hopes up, then comes a band that you think either “Who?” or “WTF?”…

It’s hard not to look at the choice as dissapoining, when you should be happy for those who gained DLC that they love.

It’s the psychology of loss. If you have two children and you give a lollipop to child A, B feels like they lost a lollipop, not that their friend has gained one.

I’m a grown arsed man, not a kid. I should be able to harden the fuck up and move on but there are days I just want my damn lollipop…

Don’t Speak gets on my nerves, but if Spiderwebs is on there you can guarantee I’ll at least pick that up. The random other will depends on how I feel…
The bassist in me is gleefully excited.,

Surprised its not a 5 pack. In addition to “Don’t Speak” I think these are candidates:
Just a Girl, Spiderwebs, Simple Kind of Life, Hella Good, Underneath It All, It’s My Life, Settle Down.

Reminds me of the Tooth Fairy episode of South Park:

Announcer: Where?
Dr Foley: In Montreal.
Announcer: [more laughing] And where, pray, is this “Montreal”?

So many 90s artists… why? and why these artists? Is it really that difficult to get a wider range of artists from across the decades? No Doubt is license happy, I am surprised it’s not a 5-pack. This isn’t a band I think of when I think I want to play guitar songs, but they sure get stuffed into these guitar games. Enjoy, anyway!

I think I’ll be skipping over this DLC, at least for now. Never listened to the band that much, and I’m not a bassist anyhow. Then again, I did say to myself “I’m not buying the Billy Clyro pack” and here I am now, already 100% on Stingin’ Belle. Funny how that works 😛

Haven’t listened to No Doubt in ages.

“Sorry I’m not home right now…leave a message and I’ll call you back.” How charmingly archaic those lines are now.

AND THE CORDED PHONES IN THE VIDEO. There are probably adults here who have never used one. 😯

Good predictions. I will add to them.

Just a Girl could be a choice. I think its in Drop D?

I expect Spiderwebs for sure.

Dark horse song candidate: Their cover of Its My Life. That prechorus bass is orgasmic.

I myself have requested all 4 of these songs before.
