Hardest Songs in Guitar Hero World Tour

The Top Ten

1 Satch Boogie - Joe Satriani

C'mon, it's Satriani's! Do I have to say more?

Pretty easy until you get to the solo similar to the start of hot for teacher. It is way longer and more complicated and even with a max star power takes practice to pass

Right after Passing Through the Fire and Flames (Through the Fire and Flames), this song was relatively easy, but if that "Hot for Teacher on crack" solo was at the beginning on the song, or you had no star power, it'd take lots of practice to pull off.

Okay not to crazy

2 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen

All my songs are five stars this one is a 3 star

I'm terrible at guitar hero and trying this song was a mistake!

Hot for teacher is my favorite song

Okay, toss-up between this and Satch Boogie, but this one won for three reasons.
The first is: Satch Boogie is very short in length- your momentum and staminum aren't really tested with Satch Boogie, but Hot For Teacher, however, is nearly three minutes longer than SB.
The second is consistency. Hot For Teacher's main riff is arguably one of the hardest parts in the game, period, with a difficult hammer-on transition, and this is just the main riff. You have to be able to consistently hit that riff, and a variation of it, too.
The third is the solo. Holy damn. The solo. The ending solo has trill-chords with near impossible transitions, not to mention the very beginning taps. - HeavyMetalHero

3 B.Y.O.B. - System of a Down

Of all the songs that I beat on Hard difficulty, this would be the hardest on Bass for me. I hear from all my friends that Bass is easy, but Bass hard on this song is challenging. My first time ever playing on Hard on guitar I did Bass for the Jack of all trades and get Hard difficulty achievements and below, took me only one time to do all songs and a long time (like a few days) to get this song completed on Hard difficulty.

I meant to comment on B.Y.O.B. saying off-rythym. All these songs are really hard in one part but B.Y.O.B. is hard all the way through! Hardest and best on the game. - moose4life19

This song isn't that hard if you just hold green while you play the hard part. I play on expert so don't think I don't know what I'm talking about.

Harder than Satch Boogie for me.

4 Scream Aim Fire - Bullet for My Valentine
5 Trapped Under Ice - Metallica


I was able to do B.Y.O.B. on hard, but not this. This song and its solos were just too much for me.

6 Overkill - Motörhead

I wouldn't say this song is hard, because if you keep the rhythm, you are okay, but as soon as you get off beat, you are signing your death warrant.

This song is the only song that I always get 3 stars on guitar, everything else 5 stars. The guitar in this song when you play it is sketchy.

I thought where is overkill, because it is so really challenging, but have beaten it, like every song in this game.

7 Never Too Late - The Answer

Only issues are the intro and the solo, should probably be lower

8 Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd

Satch Boogie is fairly easy when it comes to the two hand tapping bit near the end, which is the hardest part of the song in my opinion. The final solo in Sweet Home Alabama, however, kills me every time unless I have max star power saved up

Only issue are some confusing solo riffs near the end.

9 Crazy Train - Ozzy Osbourne

This song is so hard

10 Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

Riff isn't very difficult but the two solos in it will kill you without star power

Not insanely hard. But a very difficult solo towards the start on expert

The Contenders

11 Rondo (Neversoft)
12 Love Spreads - The Stone Roses
13 Through the Fire and Flames - Dragonforce
14 La Rumba

Incredibly hard solo after you get past the blue rapid fire notes and then it changes up the rhythm in the end of the song

15 Pull Me Under
