    Rocksmith Nation

    The vast majority of artists in Rocksmith are American or English; followed by Japanese because of the early Japan DLC releases. So what other countries are represented? Using a few Wikipedia pages this is what I've come up with.

    Sweden: Europe, The Hives, Arch Enemy, Eagle-Eye Cherry, Blue Swede, Millencolin, Amon Amarth, The Cardigans, Ghost, Sabaton, Roxette, Amaranthe
    Australia: The Vines, Tame Impala, Silverchair, Jet, Wolfmother, Rick Springfield, Airbourne, Colin Hay (of Men at Work), 5 Seconds of Summer, Orianthi
    Scotland: Franz Ferdinand, PAWS, Biffy Clyro, The Fratellis, Nazareth, Simple Minds, KT Tunstall, The Proclaimers, Big Country
    Ireland: Thin Lizzy, The Cranberries, Villagers, U2
    Netherlands: Focus, Shocking Blue, George Baker Selection, Golden Earring
    Wales: Bullet for My Valentine, Stereophonics, Badfinger, Manic Street Preachers
    Northern Ireland: Stiff Little Fingers, Two Door Cinema Club, Gary Moore
    Iceland: Sigur Rós, Of Monsters and Men, Kaleo
    Norway: Darkthrone, a-ha
    South Africa: Seether
    Germany: Accept
    Denmark: Volbeat
    Brazil: Sepultura
    Jamaica: Bob Marley and the Wailers

    Oh! I was sure they were American bad. (I don't know that I actually know any of their songs, actually. Only their reputation.)

    I made those requests a long time ago with the app. Hopefully I'm not the only one. Time will tell.

    Good thing you made that list of countries, thanks. It's good to see what countries are represented in Rocksmith.

    The Guess Who is Canadian.

    I suppose you could also include the nationalities of the composers responsible for Bachsmith I and II. Germany (Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Offenbach) , Austria ( Mozart), Russia (Tchaikovsky), Poland (Chopin)

    Added The Guess Who.
    I intentionally left out the Bachsmith and Rocksmith Goes To The Movies songs/artists, as we don't have "original performance by the artist" in those situations.
