Speculation: Rocksmith Newsletter Hints at November DLC

Greetings, Rocksmith fans!

As the weather gets colder, rainier, and more bipolar (figuratively and literally), especially here in Cleveland, November ushers in to bring us another well-anticipated month of Rocksmith DLC, and just in time for the latest newsletter!

“A Precious Stone”

Pearl Jam – Even Flow

Does this signify Pearl Jam‘s long-awaited return to Rocksmith? Or maybe Neil Diamond, or perhaps this well-known gem from Guitar Hero III:

Kaiser Chiefs – Ruby

Elliott‘s hoping for this:

Rancid – Ruby Soho

“A weird Jam”

At first, I had absolutely no idea what this could mean, until I looked at this lyric from Ziggy Stardust:

Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly

I think it might be safe to assume this is what the newsletter meant.

Confirmed

“Something Joyous!”

This might be wishful thinking, but I sincerely hope for:

Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart

Hey, they’re on Rock Band, why not on Rocksmith?

Or maybe…

The Joy Formidable – Whirring

So, Rocksmith fans, are you hopeful this holiday season will be filled with as much awesomeness as last year’s? What do you think the newsletter is suggesting? Leave a comment below, and have a fulfilling month!

The Beatles…unless referring to an entomological band.

And don't forget…"Joy to the World" Three Dog Night a band/genre sorely missing in RS.

This is one of the things I really like about Rocksmith-introducing music to the masses. I’d heard of the Black Keys but never heard their music until Rocksmith. With what’s been released so far, I’m enjoying what they have to offer. Have since acquired a cd and watched them on Austin City Limits.

While I’m still hoping for a miracle from what remains of the Top 40 requests list, I can deal with the Black Keys.

Not bad.

I immediately thought of the Seals and Crofts song “Diamond Girl” for the first phrase.
Their hints are not usually literal lyrics, though…

True, but doesn’t Pearl Jam have a Stone on guitar? Don’t give up hope yet.

I honestly can’t say anything new. We are speculating, but I am not going to believe pearl jam nirvana Stone Temple Pilots rumors until I see it. Oh axe grinder nailed my sentiment almost perfectly. I would like the cult as well but I find that limiting Pearl Jam to 3 tracks off their first album is narrow, I would love so many songs off their later stuff. Spin the black circle, smile, up in my tree, no way, glorified g, animal…et stinkin’ cetera. Nirvana would be cool and Joyous. A wierd Jam…pearl jam would be a wierd jam. Stone Temple Pilots…that temple made of stone would be precious…especially if it flies…and can be piloted…damn, I guess I can speculate.

I have, I view them more as pop-punk, borderline ska-punk. I’m ready for some real punk like the Sex Pistols and Black Flag.

I mean, Armstrong writes songs for people like Pink and Gwen Stafani. That says enough

Mogwai not?

Out Come The Wolves is a punk album, doesn’t matter what Tim did for th- *holds back vomit* The Transplants.

Playing your instruments well doesn’t make you less punk. Would rather have Dead Kennedys or Minor Threat over Sex Pistols.

Also insert “fk Greg Ginn”

Any punk band is better than the sex pistols. All image and no talent. I’d much rather have more from The Clash, especially their punkier stuff. Just put Give em Enough Rope on Rocksmith already!

I understand that there are artists that are extremely hard to get to agree to Rocksmith tracks : Metallica, Zepplin, Pink Floyd etc. So my question is, why doesn’t Ubisoft concentrate on licensing packs from the numerous great artists that are already in Rocksmith? STP pack Rob/white Zombie pack, Alice Cooper pack Nirvana pack, Stones big 12 pack and so on. Not to mention second packs by many others. Judas Priest 2 comes to mind : Helion/Electric Eye, Hell bent for leather, You got another thing coming, Ram it down and Metal Meltdown Please 🙂

Rosetta Stone? Or should i say Rosetta StonED? Almost impossible but hey, Never say never (and Pearl Jam too). (Rosetta Stoned, Lateralus, 10,000 Days, Ænima, The Pot)

Something Joyous

I’m with you on Joy Division. We need them. (Transmission, Dead Souls, Shadowplay, Love Will Tear Us Apart, Isolation)

I like the earlier suggestion of Ruby Tuesday by the Rolling Stones because it would match the clue as a song and as a group.

The “Precious Stone” hits on 2 levels leaning toward Pearl Jam. The name of the band and one of their guitar players.
