Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter hints at August DLC

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Looks like the newsletter has been mailed out which means we have a chance to predict what August has in store for us!

Zb8YMFbT

Ok, so we can take care of one of these…

A very potent potable!

That is definitely referring to Tequila by The Champs!

Some music from Manchester

This one is a bit tricky, there are many possibilities but I am going to go with a pack from The Smiths.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3bCWRLS6Eo

Of course it could also be Joy Division or New Order, or it may even be a mixed pack… Speculation gone wild!

Or perhaps it’s a band that @CrossieRS has been trying to get for awhile now…

Or maybe @UbisoftStudioSF read my article?

 

Something autobiographical

This is my best guess for this one, and I hope I’m right

Many of @NineInchNails’ songs are from the first person so I think it isn’t that farfetched. Of course it could also easily be Sex Pistols with Anarchy In the UK or even Don McLean’s American Pie!

Of course there are just our predictions… What do you think @DanAmrich is hinting at? Let us know!

Okay so in light of this weekend’s theatrical release, the first thing that comes to mind for autobiographical is “Let Me Ride” by Dr. Dre

Going in a completely different direction No Woman No Cry would be nice as well.

Yeah i know, keep dreaming.

Is The Cult from Manchester? I’m too lazy to look it up but would be an awesome DLC pack

Van Morrison had autobiographical songs like brown eyed girl & and it stoned me but I’m thinking more along the lines of a Jimmy Buffett with margaritaville and come Monday etc…

When doves cry by Prince would be awesome

I just want one solid month of music that has been released in this decade. I don’t understand why they have completely abandoned new music

Variety in decades is important, that’s why we won’t get a full month of 2010’s. Last month had 4 songs from this decade which is a reasonable (all of the Volbeat pack except Still Counting). June had 1 (I Appear Missing), March had 1 (Becoming a Jackal), January had 1 (Guilty All the Same). For a franchise that started 4 years after Rock Band, you should be happy that we have this much 2010’s!

Upon that video reminding me of Brand New Sin, I played the couple albums I had and had to put a formal request in for them. You can get a 3 pk easy from “Recipe for Disaster” album. Awesome southern rock bar band type. Like Molly Hatchet kicked up a few notches.

Am I the only one that got excited when they saw Brand New Sin’s “Tequila” album as the first vid. There are some great songs on that album, have to say got my hopes up thinking it was to good to be true. Ah well….

I hope these speculations are wrong, I mean NIN is to me is one of those bands that is fun to listen to but a snoozefest to play, and the smiths are not exactly known for being guitar virtuoso’s either, I have not been challenged on guitar since the primus pack. I hope ubisoft picks some bands with more challenging guitar lines. there is plenty of beginner/campfire chord songs already.

Its been over month since then, That’s too long of a wait for some great dlc, we have only had decent at best since the skynrd pack and i’m looking for all that remains/cliffs of dover difficulty. The lynyrd skynrd pack was alright in my opinion but they botched the song picks by putting in gimme three steps (probably the worst skynyrd song period) and the breeze. They should have put in the needle and the spoon and that smell instead, or made a 5 pack.

My guess for “autobiographical” is The Story of My Life by either Marty Robbins or Michael Holliday. I’m leaning more towards the Michael Holliday version though. Perhaps a leftover song from the 50’s pack?

A pretty slim chance unfortunately 🙁 They are currently fighting for the rights of their old songs, hence why they are re-releasing/re-recording them and why we had the 2012 version of ‘Pour some sugar on me’.

Could Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean be possible for Rocksmith to license? It’s based off of Michael’s encounter with a crazy fan.

Saw Morrissey a couple weeks ago. Smiths would be fun. For autobiographical, I’m thinking Talking Heads here (perhaps due to Smiths).

Either way, it should be interesting.

dont be wrong id like to have some of the smith some nin but kings of leon i really cant stand , beside that s an opinion , it aint a gods secret i hate them , they may be nice guys to talk to but for musicid like to listen a donkey fart for an hour and id find it way more compelling in terms of musicality…..

i hope you ll know this is a joke lol 🙂 ( but in every says there s some verity , for my opinion not the general or everyone opinion , beside i love drum and bass its just that they should create a game with those instrument or just put more song to equal or having a better diversity , i know they can , it might be because its a bit of more works and they might make less money with the choice they make , its better to take artist that one hit and top 40 radio or took artist that their name has been said a hundred thousand of times and the request ( and that means that everyone want them..!! i cant believe they still work like that ) or simply take a flavour of the week band , or flavor of the year take it anyway you want , if that game would have been in 70-80 i wouldnt complain there plenty of guitar that look awesome to play , its a game an arcade played on console or pc……

If Bee Gees is the answer to the Manchester clue, I expect a lot of “Disco Sucks” and similar comments from the user base, not knowing that quite a few Bee Gees songs have very good basslines:

Could be either Slipknot or Stone Sour since corey taylor who is the vocalist in both bands has recently released an autobiography.

August 5, 2015 11:36 am

Anything from the Smiths, Joy Division or New Order would be epic. So it’s probably Stone Roses, although I am guessing Stone Roses isn’t something I would hate. I had just never heard of them before.

Thinking “something autobiographical” refers to an artist who writes about their own life experiences means it could be NIN, or pretty much anybody else. Social Distortion is the more obvious choice.

The Smiths would make my year. The riffs from This Charming Man, There is a Light that Never Goes out and Sweet and Tender Hooligan etc etc would keep me locked in a room practicing and playing for a long time., Unfortunately, I think getting some permissions might be nigh impossible (a certain vainglorious frontman comes to mind). So it’s more likely the Stone Roses. I am hoping against all odds its the Smiths, though.

thequickmind
August 5, 2015 9:24 am

It could be a mixed pack of Manchester bands, because the clue says “some music from Manchester” but I’m leaning towards The Stone Roses. Their songs are perfect for this game.

As far as something autobiographical, does Nirvana’s Serve the Servants count? There are a ton of autobiographical songs out there, that this one is really hard to nail down.

I never realized that NIN songs were in 1st person. I saw someone say Story of My Life by Social Distortion which could make sense for autobiographical.

As for Manchester, I will stick with The Stone Roses.
