Speculation: Soundgarden is finally returning to Rocksmith!

Greetings, Rocksmith fans!

It’s Friday once again, and the clue has been cracked; one of the big four of the Seattle grunge scene is coming to Rocksmith 2014 over 3 years after their on-disc inclusion in Rocksmith 1. That’s right, it’s Soundgarden!

Some of you might remember the Audioslave DLC we got in September; a supergroup comprised of 3 members of Rage Against the Machine with Soundgarden’s lead singer Chris Cornell on vocals instead of Zach de la Rocha.

It started when @DanAmrich posted this clue:

If each blue dot equals one, and each red dot equals zero, the resulting binary code gives us this:

47 41 07 N 122 14 59 W

Which bring us to Lake Shore Promenade in Seattle, Washington. The view from Google Earth looks like this:

This landmark is a public artwork called “A Sound Garden,” where wind blowing by causes these structures to produce low tones through organ-like pipes. Of course, they are most widely known as what Soundgarden got their name from.

They already have a wide presence in the Rock Band games, and as I’ve already mentioned, Outshined was an on-disc importable Rocksmith 1 track. Dan already confirmed that it would be a five-pack, so what songs should we expect? Of course, their two Grammy-winning songs should be obvious inclusions:

These other high-charters on the Billboard Rock and Alternative charts would also be a nice inclusion:

And finally, one of their earlier singles to top it all off:

Here are the top 10 Soundgarden songs from @Spotify, what song do you think is most likely to appear next week? Not on the list? Vote “Other”.

Are you glad that Soundgarden is finally coming back? Could more RS1 artists that haven’t yet gotten DLC or a track on Rocksmith 2014 be coming in the future? (hint hint RHCP) Let us know in the comments below!

I’d love to get Jesus Christ Pose, but I think it’s unlikely.

People, remember what happen in the Iron Maiden pack
so maybe they might not put Black Hole Sun in the pack
as it was clear that hallowed be thy name was Iron Maidens biggest song
but they did not put it in the pack
and hallowed be thy name is on 25 on the best song of all time list on top ten list
and that can be any music
rock, pop, metal
but I’m just saying it might happen
but It won’t
so have fun with Black Hole Sun

i feel same way about black hole sun it was a good song until i heard it for the millioneth time on radio and that killed it plus it doesn’t sound like a soundgarden song maybe a too bit polished and repetitive

Aren’t a bunch of their songs in really weird tunings, to make it easy for Cornell to play and sing at the same time? I remember most of the songs from RB3 pro mode involved straight one-finger barre chords, lol.

Hopefully maybe there are “bonus arrangements” released with the right chords? Might not be possible though…

Just three requests from this guy.

4th of July
Like Suicide
And I highly doubt it’d be possible but their cover of Into the Void would be suh-weet!

Spoonman (must be pretty fun)
Black Rain (mmmh GHWor, and it’s such a great song imo 🙂 )

4th of july
fresh tendrils
Holy water

Rusty cage

Hi there! Unpopular Opinion Guy here. I hope Ubi swaps out Black Hole Sun for almost anything else. I like Soundgarden a good deal, but BHS has to be some of the dullest, most uninspired, radio-friendly dreck in their back catalog. Swap that one out for 4th of July (or only include cuts from Louder Than Love and BadMotorFinger) and the pack would go from being predictable to subversive and interesting.

Unpopular Opinion Guy signing off …

Jesus Christ Pose was always my favourite. Awesome seizure producing video FTW.

I love the basslines in Outshined from RS1.

I keep hoping people stop spamming DLC requests. It’s annoying.
