Top Ten Guitar Hero Songs


The Top TenXW

1One - Metallica

Sure Through the Fire and Flames is known in GH for its incredibly intense and fast guitar solos but nothing beats the complexity song from Metallica

Unlike Through the Fire and Flames which is all incredibly fast tapping. One starts with a slow intro but as the song goes, it gets heavier and heavier. The solo is quite challenging since the tapping section completely murders me in Expert mode (yeah ok, I'm not that good, shut up if your gonna make fun of me or crap yourself)

Right now, I'm playing a real electric guitar. In reality the song is quite advanced but just needs some practice and experience to get the whole song. I'm currently stuck at the part after the part where I got stuck in Expert mode in this song

This has been made by someone almost at my status, metalica. they are world renowned and it is reason enough to be admired immensly - RockGod4646

This song is challenging and over all the best song EVER

I would've voted this song but the bridge is excruciating. (I'm not good at repeating patterns and triple notes)

2Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce

I love how this song and Beast and the Harlot are both on the best and worst list. I personally think that this song is much better than the latter mention and definitely deserves to be on this list.

dragonforce isn't so famous but this song is pretty cool - andres101

Best guitar hero song ever. It's long, has great lyrics, and amazing rhythm to it. I'm addicted to the song.

This is by far the best song I've ever played

4Cult of Personality - Living Colour

Aw man! This was so frustrating because I couldn't coordinate the main riff with the hammer-ons even though it seemed so easy. Once you get it, you've got it! Very fun to play!

The solo. It is godly and extremely fun to play! Every time I turn on guitar hero 3 I have to play this at least once!

I do believe that this song is totally one of my favorites to play. So fun and the solo is epic! I can do darn good at it haha. - ethany

It's just ridiculously fun to play. The main riff, especially.

5Welcom to the Jungle - Guns 'N Roses

I'm looking at this list based solely on the fun factor and this song is amazingly fun to play once you get the rhythm down.

! Number 11 should be number 2 one by Metallica is the best song ever

One sucks it sucks it terrible welcome to the jungle way better

6Free Bird - Lynyrd SkynyrdV3 Comments
7Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

Amazing song. Guitar Hero should have one last game dedicated to Avenged Sevenfold. Like this if you agree with me. - gheez

Not only the most entertaining song to play on guitar hero, but also one the "best" song featured in the series.

I think this is should definitely be in the top ten! this riff and solo is just so fun and I am a huge fan of a7x!

Love the band and super fun to play

8Jordan - Buckethead

Buckethead Gave Guitar Hero not only the exclusivity of the song, he gave the exclusivity of release (The Song Was Given To Guitar Hero In 2006, But Was Released In 2009) - Neosantana

I love dis song... the solo for 3 minutes is a masterpiece... no doubt, no1 can defeat it... - broken_skull

9The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band

Very fun solos, fastest strumming sections in the entire game, challenging, virtually no breaks and is brutal a majority of the way through, a true monster to beat and an even bigger one to fc.

10Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine

Come on bulls on parade has to be at least in the top 5! With tom's awesome guitar riffs and zack's awesome lyrics this song is the BEST!

11Stricken - Disturbed

Just a well set out song. Not overly hard to play but the music is fantastic.

12Before I Forget - Slipknot

I like before I forget and I play rock band 3 is not annoying is was very awesome song I ever hear

13When You Were Young - The Killers

One of the greatest songs I've ever heard. It has the most amazing beat, meaning, and everything! It's number 1!

I absolutly love playing this song on or off guitar hero but where the hey is my name is Jonas by Weezer. - happyhappyjoyjoy

Sooo good I love playing it, and the hammer ons in the beginning feel so great.

14Iron Man - Black Sabbath

Good song but why isn't paranoid on this list

Riff owns every single time - rocker1796

15Killing In the Name - Rage Against the Machine
16Master of Puppets - Metallica

I didn't like this album as much (my favorite Metallica album and song is...And Justice for All) but still a really difficult song to play on guitar hero
