Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter Hints at May DLC

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Hot out of the e-mail press is the Rocksmith Newsletter, giving us our monthly cryptic hint at DLC to come!

“The Sound of a Heartbeat Pounding Away”

Well, not much to be said about heartbeats pounding away

“A Cold One”

Okay, how about a cold one?  Could we be referring to a beer?  (Hmm, “Say it Ain’t So” is already on-disc…) How about some Stevie Ray Vaughan?

Could we finally be in for the long overdue debut of Coldplay?

“Something Fuzzy”

This one has us stumped- could we be referring to tone?  A band?  Does fur count as fuzz?

What would you like to see in May’s DLC?  Sound off in the comments below!

A Cold One: Kiss -- Cold Gin maybe?

Something Fuzzy: This must be Nazareth -- Hair of the Dog that (announced as part of this week’s DLC)

Sound of a Heartbeat Pounding Away: Has got to be Huey Lewis -- The Heart of Rock and Roll.

Obviously, something “fuzzy” is going to ZZ Top, with their amazing fuzzy guitars

Fuzzy..Peaches-POT U.S.A.

Cold one..Alcohaulin’ ass-Hell Yeah

While I know 90% of us guessing bands who may have appeared in the Billboard top 10 are probably going to get the answers to these clues wrong, it’s still fun to guess.

Question: Would a Leppard be considered fuzzy?

Just thinking of the possibilities.

If it’s cold play I’m trading this game in… Nothing says rock about a crying piano playing ginger!

LF

Come on people, there’s only one answer:

IT’S COLD GIN TIME AGAIN!

Dangermouse
Guest

I hope I’m wrong but meryl Streep sings a song called a cold one in the film Ricky and the flash maybe songs from movies pack

Jarryd

Fuzz universe by Paul Gilbert or mudhoney. Maybe even some real funk like bootsy or funkadelic

cwLudo
Guest

Since it is May, how about some Mae?
Silversun pickups refer to their sound as the fuzz and Panic switch is one of my fav tracks on the game.
Would be amazing if something cold referred to Cold Company and we get more minus the bear.

Chris

gief silversun pickups. GIEF.

Kramer

Huey Lewis, Heart of rock n roll

MarleySantana
Guest

YES!!!!!

Can’t believe I missed that. Got to be Huey Lewis and the News. Good call!
Heart of Rock N Rock
Heart and Soul
Hip to Be Square
Workin’ for a Livin’

Theres too many to call on.

Kramer
Guest

Fingers crossed for sure

Kramer

Oh forget it, that was the clue for the band we got last week, that’s too bad. Would have preferred Huey over that any day

Scoobs

Here are my guesses:

Cold One = George Thorogood -- “one bourbon, one scotch…”

Something fuzzy = ZZ Top?

Yeah, I doubt we’d get two blues acts in the same month but one can dream, right? 🙂

MarleySantana

Would love for SRV to finally make it to Rocksmith, however; as monumental as that would be, I’d think Ubisoft would save a gem like that for the holidays. The same can almost be said for ZZ Top.

Now, on to another clue. The sound of a heartbeat. Could we finally see some reggae?

something cold, well I can think of a few Frank Zappa songs having to do with the cold. Watermelon in Easter Hay, Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow and Nanook Rubs It, Comsik Debris (asteroids are cold in space right?) or maybe it’s hinting at Foreigner, Cold as Ice? Or going back to Zappa something fuzzy could be Peaches en Regalia… Please?

Elliott

Cold as Ice is in the foreigner pack 🙂

Pede

The tone on Song 2 is terrible though

Kraiz
Guest

Maybe Crossfade -- cold

AXEgrinderMcKay

Wishing cold was Cold Ethyl signaling the long awaited Alice Cooper pack. https://youtu.be/Lrw1dAG-qjA

The Psychedelic Furs?

DRein9

How about ‘a cold one’ being Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band? Sliver Bullet being a Coors and all. I’d be in for that, but would still prefer SRV.

Fuzzy peach? Eat A Peach … More Allman Brothers? Blue Sky would be very welcome.

DRein9
Guest

Melissa too, but that may be too much slide.

Vlad Semykopnyi

Sepultura -- Refuse/Resist

Darthrare
Guest

I hope the cold one refers to Cold. Would love to learn Suffocate, Happens All the Time, Remedy, Stupid Girl, etc.

exzzy
Guest

Thats already in game…

Cerealturtle

No guesses for Eric Church? good mix of rock country and his song ‘cold one’ would actually be pretty cool to get! excuse me while i go request it now 🙂 https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=BKvE-WoooLE

Something fuzzy… Blur? Song 2 would be an instant purchase for me!

Elliott

You’ve been missing out on that song since 2011 ? export Rocksmith 1 and play it today!

Nick

Also worth noting that the heavy fuzz riff in that song is/was played on bass. The guitar bit is boring as fuck during the heavy bit.

Gilbert Neck Jig

Being from Pennsylvania, I was able to see Kix a lot in the 80’s. I’m hoping for COLD SHOWER. Once while seeing them, I was at complete universal oneness with that riff. Might have been the acid… but would still dig a Kix tune on RS.

Craig McCracken
Guest

Or Cold Blood from Kix. Love that song.

CJBlandford
Guest

Are you THE Craig McCracken, the creator of such masterpieces as Powerpuff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, or are you just a fan? Had to ask.

CJBlandford
Guest

I hope something fuzzy refers to the album “Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy” by The Refreshments and that we get either Banditos or Mekong.

DRein9
Guest

Sure hoping for some SRV.

At this point, I may be done with buying DLC until something like SRV, ZZ Top, or Grateful Dead shows up. There is too much I’ve bought and don’t play enough.

I don’t think they (or anyone) caught my request to fill the extra time on the stream with Albert King and SRV. Reason was Albert’s bday was last week and SRV was also big time influenced by Lonnie Mack, who died last week. Though, by that, they could have played many songs, especially Allman Brothers.

Anyway, YES, please, on SRV.

Heartbeat -- Don Johnson

Ice Ice Baby -- Vanilla Ice

Something Fuzzy -- Kip Winger

I bet “something fuzzy” refers to Peaches by PUSA.

We desperately need some SRV in the game, so I hope you’re right about Cold Shot.

Michael K

Life by the Drop by SRV would be good as it has been in a previous Ubisoft game -- Guitar Hits
