A whole bunch of Triumph would be great. Rik Emmet is an amazing guitarist. Another Rush pack would be cool as long as it was their older material like from 2112 or Fly By Night, etc.

For some reason my last comment is awaiting moderation but while I sit here playing RS I’m just thinking this genre will be forever linked to the ‘power ballad’ that would have been a guilty pleasure DLC pack so hopefully someday….another true guilty pleasure song from this genre would be ‘Smooth up in ya’ by the Bulletboys…

Well autograph was definitely an “opening act” but poison was a headliner and winger’s first two studio albums went platinum so if I can speculate on openers…

Slaughter
Cinderella
Extreme
Firehouse
White Lion
Great White
Faster Pussycat
Dangerous Toys

Queensryche would be amazing and Dokken, Dio and WASP would fucking rock too….

I see we have three confirmed songs so far, and all are great.

I saw a comment from Dan over on the DLC forums stating that, while their definition of “arena rock” covered rock bands who were able to sell out said arenas, there were also a band or two that might have been considered more of an “opening band” in popularity.

Hearing that, I’d love it if Wishbone Ash made it in-- they sold out huge arenas and also opened for bands like the Who and Kansas before they fizzled out of the limelight. Twin guitars, catchy as hell bass, and prog goodness would fit this game like a glove.

Loverboy -- Turn Me Loose
Skid Row -- 18 And Life
Whitesnake -- Crying In The Rain
Dokken -- Into The Fire
Grand Funk Railroad -- We’re An American Band
Night Ranger -- (You Can Still Rock In America)
Def Leppard -- Let’s Get Rocked

Pick 2 of these (or anything by NR period) and I’ll be happy!

I’m pretty excited for this singles set. The three (out of five) songs announced so far all have some wicked guitar in them. For those metal people complaining about easy guitar parts, I’d like to see people master these. My fingers hurt already.

So we have for sure:
Winger- Seventeen
Poison- Nothin’ But a Good Time
Autograph- Turn Up the Radio

I think the other two are:
Night Ranger- Sister Christian
Warrant- Cherry Pie

I thought about who would be best served by a single pack, and that’s what I’m thinking. Though, I would like to see “Here I Go Again” and/or “Still of the Night” by Whitesnake later too…

I don’t know why these came to mind, but REO Speedwagon and Starship keep coming to mind. I don’t think they are Arena rock at all, but it won’t go away.

So PLEASE get the last 3 songs outed so I can erase these tracks from my mind!

REO Speedwagon is very Arena Rock. I half expect something in the final two to be more hard rock than hair metal, since they didn’t call it a hair metal pack.

When I think arena rock, I think of the Scorpions, Also Nova, Loverboy, Golden Earring… Well, I actually think of some other arguably bigger names, but these seem likely. Outside of the Scorpions, I’d be content with just a song or two from the others I listed. Let’s hope no big names are given just a single song!

I’m not a huge fan of Scorpions, but I’d buy some of their songs for my RS..
I think they deserve their own pack. They have MEGA hits that are still airing on radio, I have just heard “Still loving you” few hours ago on a french radio.

Still waiting for that Meatloaf 5 pack, but this might get me by. Beside what happen to the Tenacious D rumors. Been a slow month for DLC. Maybe next month we will get some Jim Croche (Time in a Bottle, Leroy Brown, Operator), Simon and Garfunkel (Sound of Silence?), Mama’s and the Papas (California Dreaming), actually the entire Forest Gump Soundtrack would do. Perhaps if we are super lucky they will go way back and give us that Chuck Berry 5 pack we have all been waiting for. Where are the 50’s greats? There is just so much amazing music being passed over. And if it is really all about technical skill, then why aren’t they forking over the big bucks for Floyd, Clapton, Vaughn, G&R,and Metallica?!

Unrelated but does anyone on this forum have an extra Rocksmith cable? They seem kinda hard to find and/or expensive. My buddy wants to learn guitar with me while I learn bass.

If you do, please leave me a comment and we can get in touch. Thanks!

No. That would be ridiculous. I was just hoping someone might sell it for less than $25 plus shipping. Seems steep for a cable.

Thanks for assuming that I’m a cheap asshole though.

You made no effort to let anyone know you intended on paying for one. I can go back and quote all your messages and I wouldn’t find a single clue in there as to your intentions. If you don’t want people to assume you’re a cheap asshole, maybe don’t act like one 😐

Hey fuck face, the point is that I didn’t say one way or the other and you went out of your way to assume the worst about me/my intentions. Thanks for that. Sure, I could have said:

“Does anyone in here happen to have a spare Rocksmith cable that I could pay like $15-20 for? $25-30 seems pretty steep to me. I’m not asking for a donation, but apparently not outright stating that I want to pay you for your cable makes it sound like I am. Even though most of you probably only have one cable and use it, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to ask.”

Does that make you happier, guy who obviously has nothing better to do than comment on my innocent question and be a total dick?

I could see any of the following:

Turn Me Loose by Loverboy
Feel Like Makin Love by Bad Company
Cum on Feel the Noize by Quiet Riot
Lonely is the Night by Billy Squier (please!!!)
Don’t Stop Believin by Journey (though I’d rather have Separate Ways)
Renegade by Styx
Lay It on the Line by Triumph
Youth Gone Wild by Skid Row
Bathroom Wall by Faster Pussycat

I dunno, but those are some off the top of my head. I feel like there are a lot of options, and I’ll probably be satisfied with any picks.

Forest1903 -- Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It” was already released for Rocksmith 1. So go forth and snag it!

So many arena rock hits are from groups I’d like to see a whole song pack from. Warrant’s Cherry Pie would be a good addition. Also, something like Aldo Nova’s “Fantasy” or something like that -- very Loverboy-esque. Nice one-hit-wondery over-the-top classics. That would be awesome.

Really looking forward to finding out the other two songs. I think all three will be a day-1 download for me if they are in the same vein as Autograph.
