    Official Rocksmith Song Requests *Updated 5/5/17

    Hey Rockers!
    Since the release of Rocksmith, we have heard and shared your overwhelmingly awesome love for Rock and the Bands and Songs you have requested! We would like to thank you for sharing with us and we really appreciate your dedication to making Rocksmith & Rocksmith 2014 an amazing experience for all!

    Want to request a Song? Please use the following site to do just that.

    Send us your song suggestions through our website: http://rocksmith.com/requests (It's mobile-friendly!)





    Please note that any and all DLC Request threads will be locked so they do not clutter the Forums and because we are unable to keep track of them. Discussion of bands and music, in general, is perfectly fine but please keep your requests to the above App so we don't have to delete your posts or threads.

    Thanks

    I'm happy to see so many people using the official Request a Song page. The data we collect from it really does inform what we do in regards to DLC, so if you’re not using it, please do. All you need is a Uplay ID, which is free.

    The data collected by the Request a Song app is read by humans, but it’s sorted by computers. Any variables in the data slow the process down, and the biggest variable is spelling. So in the interest of streamlining the process, I wanted to offer some things to keep in mind next time you request songs.

    The top issues that we see on the requests are:

    - Misspelled band and song names. Check with the band's website or the iTunes/Amazon pages for their albums for official spellings. Some – “America’s Suitehearts,” “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs” -- might surprise you.
    - Adding/forgetting “The” with a band name (Foo Fighters yes, The Foo Fighters no; The Rolling Stones yes, Rolling Stones no) -- check the band’s official website and read their bio page to confirm.
    - Variations on “and” within band names (“Josie and the Pussycats” vs. “Josie & the Pussycats” vs. “Josie ‘n’ the Pussycats”] – again, check the band’s official website and read their bio page.
    - Incorrect punctuation [“Planetary (GO!)” and “Blink-182” are both correct; “R.E.M” without the third period after the M is not]
    - An accidental space after the name of the artist or song [“ Josie & the Pussycats” or “Jem and the Holograms “]
    - Text/chat/cell phone abbreviations for words [“Who R U”]
    - Editorial comments [“Josie & the Pussycats please!” or “Toxicity, which should have been on the disc”]
    - Acronyms or nicknames [for instance, “CCR” or “A7X”]
    - Putting multiple artists or song titles in one field [“Basket Case, Oh Love, American Idiot” doesn’t get tallied as any of those songs]
    - Putting “Any” or “All” in the song field instead of a specific song title
    - URLs to YouTube videos, artist homepages, or other websites
    - Adding the name of the album where we can find that song
    - Requesting full albums [right now we’re just doing songs]
    - Requesting the same song multiple times [your Uplay ID is linked to each request, so one vote gets it done]

    We know that some of this is inevitable – especially the leading “The” and variations on “and” in a band name. Sometimes even the artists themselves play fast and loose with this, so it’s never going to go away. But stuff like choosing “Any” as the song is amazingly common and seems fixable. It basically counts as no vote at all -- yet everybody can think of one specific song they’d like to play, right?

    Cleaning up the data is definitely part of our job, but it’s also the most time-intensive part of the whole request process. Honestly, we’d rather spend more time trying to fulfill those requests than trying to interpret them.

    We are discussing improvements to the app that might automate or auto-correct some of this in the future, but in the meantime...just know that your accuracy helps us a lot.

    Thanks.
