    I wish Know Your Enemy is included, that song’s so powerful !

    Great news. I wonder why people waste their time arguing over the “mega-hit” or not… what’s the point ? If you like it that’s fine, if you don’t that’s fine too, you’ll get the opportunity to save for Hendrix

We are hopeful that some of these artists will want to be involved in the future; we have seen some artists change their mind and we hope that the more Rocksmith continues to establish itself, the artists who are less interested may become more interested.

    Time will tell -- but just so you know, it's not because we didn't think to ask them. The music you love, respect, and want to play is the music that we love, respect, and want to play.

    I'm sad too I know Paul's tweets don't always come true but this time I really did get my hopes up. I even started a thread about it:

    Oh well, just like the Brooklyn Dodger fans always say, "Wait till next year!"
    Guess I'll just have to busy myself with Jimi and Carlos and Tom Petty and Dylan and Boston and The Who and BachSmith and............

    Oh yeah! There's a ton of DLC I still want to get! Don't get me wrong I'm totally disappointed that Dire Straits aren't coming to RS anytime soon but there are still plenty of songs for me to buy! Especially Jimi Hendrix! That's what I'm most excited for now! Unless Fleetwood Mac are announced!

    It wasn't fans of RATM that got them that #1 single. It was the whole 'X Factor ruling the Christmas #1 for years' and a Facebook campaign urging people to buy 'Killing In The Name' to tell Simon Cowell that we won't do what he tells us.

    It was a sort of protest to break Simon Cowell's reign of the Christmas #1 spot. Which the X Factor Winners Song had won for years up until that point.

    I watched the videos posted back earlier and I really like the guitar. I can barely understand the singer though. So I may get it since I generally don't pay attention to the singer unless there's no guitar playing

    With 6 songs I'm sure there'll be plenty for any Rage fan. Any of their radio mega-hits would be fine by me, but I really hope we get No Shelter from the Godzilla (1998) soundtrack). Love that riff and the guitar is pretty straight forward without a lot of unusual sounds or techniques.
