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!
