Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter hints at June DLC

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Another month and yet another newsletter tease at what’s to come!

Arrival of EVEN MORE ROYALTY

You can’t fool us Dan, we know it’s @QoTSA, and if it’s not then I guess the back up might be @royalblooduk (Paul’s been talking about them) or @KingsOfLeon.

See.

Something monstrous

So my first bet was maybe @Slipknot being a remaining Top 40 Request, but that got me to thinking about other “monstrous” bands we are lacking DLC from like White Zombie and Alice Cooper…

a few classic slices of Americana

This will probably end up being a mixed singles pack but who is more Americana then Bruce Springsteen?

Yes, it’s definitely possible to license The Boss…

two unusual animals (two weeks of DLC?)

is it two different animals? In any event I am pretty confident that Monkeys that live in The Arctic are pretty unusual but so is a Leopard that is Deaf I suppose…

I’m really cursing myself by speculating Def Leppard aren’t I?


 

Of course those are just my guesses. What do you think is coming this June? Come back tomorrow for next week’s DLC clue!

Okay, last week in June coming up. I guess all we have left are the unusual Animals. Is that correct?

‘Something monsterous’ could be a reference to Metallica and Some Kind of Monster ? Unlikely but you never know !

Also, wouldn’t you think that eagles who like death metal are pretty weird?

I’ll admit that I have no idea of what would be the most appropriate article to pose this question in, but I got to thinking about this again after seeing the rumors of RS 2015 show up. Regardless of whether or not that rumor ends up being true, I have to wonder: what are/were the plans for the “Expansions” section that is included in RS 2014’s shop section?

Well, i guess crooked vultures are pretty weird too…

A question, the “EVEN MORE ROYALTY” confirmed as QOTSA, was it for the QOTSA pack already released or may be expect an extra song ?

It could also be something like monsters and men……no?

I vote for Temple of the Dog for the animal band.

Unusual Animal = Arctic Monkeys maybe?

Rockabilly has been confirmed for this week. I don’t think the team at Rocksmith can afford to pay for anymore good bands. Packs have been garbage for 2 months now

Ze Scorpions…no?

What if “classic Americana” is a troll and we’re getting another Offspring pack?

As long as Pretty Fly isn’t included I won’t have an issue with that…but…

White Zombie!!! \m/

A slice of americana = American Pie. It’s so obvious now!

Angered Chimp

Something monstrous, Alice Cooper because it’s June and School’s Out! and could we be refering to songs, if so then a Southbound Pachyderm sounds pretty unusual to me (not to mention it’s video) and i have always found Scorpions unusual too.

MarleySantana

Alright, here’s my guess.
Somthing Monsterous -- Gwar (not a fan but we seem to have a metal artist every month)

Americana -- Don McClean, John Fogerty, Bob Dylan, and John Cougar/John Cougar Mellencamp/John Mellencamp (<--not sure which one he's using) Bruce Springsteen (would prefer Cougar and Fogerty)

Unusual Animals -- Def Leppard, Whitesnake, White Lion, or Fishbone. (would prefer DL)

Royalty -- Anything other than B.B. is a Fail at this point. Would understand if it were Prince .

Let me think. What are some notable Rob Zombie songs.

Dragula
Superbeast
Living Dead Girl
American Witch
Meet the Creeper
House of 1000 Corpses
The Devil’s Rejects

Hmmmm, I wonder what the monster pack could possibly be…

Surprised no one has mentioned Monster Truck with Sweet Mountain River already being in the main game.

Something Monstrous = GWAR?

Wow, I hope so!!!

alpha_gator
Guest

maybe Bob Dylan for Americana, but Chet Atkins would be nice too (make my day anyway). BB King seems like a must, though. Arctic Monkeys makes sense those songs will certainly sell. Rob Zombie or Vampire Weekend seem like natural fits to songs already in the mix

Im thinking Pixies pack with the Pixies- Gigantic , for something monstrous but then again I guess ive been hopeful for a Pixies pack for quite some time. More Violent Femmes -- American Music ? for the slice of Americana.

Milkbiz

White snake is an unusual animal…on a side note how about some Mushroomhead…

Guess
Guest

Manson has a new album out and can be considered monstrous. Slipknot is a solid guess as well. Don McClean American Pie is the first thing I think of with a Slice of Americanna

Jakeseattlex19

Monster magnet, don McLean, arctic monkeys

Steven

Arctic Monkeys 5 pack
Mardy Bum
A Certain Romance
Flourescent Adolescent
Crying Lightning

Hopefully “Something monstrous” is hinting at a possible Slipknot DLC pack since they are quite a monstrous band.

Could be beach boys

Eagles of Death Metal?
Eels?

STEEL PANTHER

White Lion? Or perhaps Iron Butterfly?

Oh, that explains it. It seems like I’ve been hearing American pie on the radio often and on different stations.

madduckmusic

…a SLICE of Americana? I’ll have to think on that for a while… Oh, hey a bit off topic, but did anybody else notice that Don McLean sold one of his manuscripts a few months back? What was that song called again?

bob
Guest

A month that has Kings of Leon AND Arctic Monkeys DLC would be my dream month.

MarleySantana
Guest
MarleySantana

Sorry, I can’t let this pass. Last month we lost our last living connection to the roots of the Blues.

At this point, it would feel almost like an insult to include any royalty other than Mr. Riley B. King.

Campfire songs would be awesome.

Mike

Royalty = Solved by QotSA
Something monstrous = Probably a heavy metal artist. We have been getting at least one heavy metal band every month.
A slice of Americana = Mixed pack of “Americana” artists. Could be something classic rock or could be something modern or maybe a mix of both.
Two unusual animals = We are getting five DLCs this month, so I will say Arctic Monkeys and Def Leppard are going to be the two unusual animals.

MarleySantana
Guest
MarleySantana

I agree with you on that Def Leppard. Sounds like an unusual animal to me. I’m thinking the Americana might be John Cougar/John Mellencamp/John Cougar Mellencamp. (not sure which one to use)

kymm puckeridge

Sooo… Your big insight and depth adding contribution to this article and discussion is you completely agree with the author and have nothing original to add?

In other words don’t get my hope up for anything good…. The boss would be sweet!!..but don’t think that will happen either

Jeremy

A few other ideas:

“Something Monstrous” could refer to Vampire Weekend
“Unusual Animals” could be Them Crooked Vultures or Toad the Wet Sprocket, or maybe The Dodos
Royal Blood wouldn’t be surprising as I believe one of their tracks was recently announced for Guitar Hero Live.

Jim
Guest

I think you nailed it with the Dodos. Haven’t had an indie band for a while.

Gilbert Neck Jig

Monster Magnet, Kix, and King Diamond!

Noname Rocker

How is the band Kix related to any of these clues?

Gilbert Neck Jig

It isn’t. Did I break some sort of unwritten rule?

Noname Rocker

No but I’m fairly certain all June DLC will fall within the clues…

I hope it’s Royal Thunder and not Royal Blood.

+1

although i’m sure it was a hint at the QoTSA pack that we just got.
