Back in the early 1990s, just as the Seattle music scene was exploding into life, one group of bands combined feminist outlooks with politics and punk rock – the Riot Grrrl groups. Today the likes of L7 and Babes in Toyland come to Rocksmith on Xbox and PlayStation with the Rocksmith Riot Grrrl Song Pack.
Ever since Rocksmith 2014 Edition arrived all those years ago, we’ve seen a constant flood of brilliant DLC packs hit the game, with near weekly offerings delivering gamers on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and PS3 opportunities galore. With some packs focusing on specific bands, others on genres, and more still on icons of the music industry, it’s been a great time to be a Rocksmith player. And that is emphasised no greater than with the Riot Grrrl Song Pack.
Priced up at £6.69, the Rocksmith Riot Grrrl Song Pack brings together three huge names from the music industry, pushing out an old-school style of music that many of this age will adore. Included are…
- ‘Pretend We’re Dead – L7
- ‘Dig Me Out’ – Sleater-Kinney
- ‘Bruise Violet’ – Babes in Toyland
As is the way with the vast majority of downloadable song packs that arrive in Rocksmith on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4, each of the tunes are also available to be picked up individually. Sitting pretty with a £2.49 price tag on each, should you be learning the way of the axe and reckon that you can’t pass up the opportunity to learn and master L7’s stunning ‘Pretend We’re Dead’, but aren’t overly fussed about what either Babes in Toyland or Sleater-Kinney bring to the table (are you mad?), then you can.
Chances are that you’ll want the full Rocksmith Riot Grrrrl Song Pack though and by heading over to the Xbox Store (Xbox One and Xbox 360), or the PlayStation Store (PS3 and PS4), you can be learning some new riffs and melodies real soon.
Of course, you’ll need the base game of Rocksmith to hand in order to practice these tracks, but as the self-proclaimed fastest way to learn guitar – and us agreeing with that statement in our review – you’ve probably got that bit sorted already.
As always let us know in the comments below if you’ll be picking up the latest Rocksmith DLC pack. And if not, why not? What are you holding out for? We’d love to hear from you.
