Top Ten Guitar Hero Songs

The Top Ten
1 One - Metallica

Awesome song by Metallica. Every time I play GH: Metallica, I always play this song and I never get old of it. It's so good, it's even in Guitar Hero 3.

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

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 song is my favorite Guitar Hero song ever should be number one.

2 Through 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.

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

Incredible tune. Not only a song that is easy to like but also very fun to play.

How did this not get number 1?!?!?!

3 Cult 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!

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.

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!

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

4 Jordan - Buckethead
5 Beast 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.

As cool as dragonforce may sound, they speed up there recordings, and actually suck live. So I'm going with beast and the harlot.

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

I've never played the song, but A7X is a great band and deserve to be in the top ten list.

6 Bulls 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!

Best song ever

7 Raining Blood - Slayer

Not only is it unanimously the funnest song in GH3, it may just be the funnest in guitar hero history. Yes, Through the Fire and Flames is seven minutes of extreme hammer ons and pull offs, but Raining Blood is pure insanity. There aren't as many tricks to learning the song as opposed to Through the Fire and Flames or the solo of One for example. Speaking of, One is also a legendary song by a legendary band, but truth be told it's boring to play until you hit the bridge. Anyway, if you think you're good at guitar hero, but you haven't played Raining Blood for some reason, I insist that you play it immediately. I promise you'll be glad you did!

8 The 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.

9 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd

This is THE song for solos!

10 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

The drums on this song is absolutely the most fun part of the game when you start getting good at the game.

The Contenders
11 Welcome 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

12 Six - All that Remains
13 Stricken - Disturbed

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

14 When 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!

Yeah, the Metallica songs are fast a great.
But this song, it challenges your fingers like crazy, also.
The great riff also.

Best song by The Killers.. way better than Mr. Brightside in my opinion. Top 3 guitar hero song.

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

15 My Name Is Jonas - Weezer
16 Iron Man - Black Sabbath
17 Slow Ride - Foghat
18 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed
19 Hangar 18 - Megadeth

I play this song every time I play Guitar Hero since Guitar Hero 2. I've never gotten annoyed by it; it's that great!

20 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down
21 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne
22 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine
23 The Trooper - Iron Maiden
24 Knights of Cydonia - Muse

It's the best alternative-strum song in guitar hero's history.

25 Before 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
