Top Ten Guitar Hero Songs

The Top Ten
1 One - Metallica One - Metallica Cover Art

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

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)

This song is just so iconic and one of the best tracks I personally love

2 Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce Through the Fire and Flames - DragonForce Cover Art

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.

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

3 Cult of Personality - Living Colour Cult of Personality - Living Colour Cover Art

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 Raining Blood - Slayer Raining Blood - Slayer Cover Art

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!

Way harder than through the fire and flames

harder than every other song

5 Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Free Bird - Lynyrd Skynyrd Cover Art

Best song ever in my opinion

This is THE song for solos!

6 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold Cover Art

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 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!

7 The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band The Devil Went Down to Georgia - The Charlie Daniels Band Cover Art

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.

HARDEST SONG IN THE WHOLE SERIES! MOVE THIS UP!

8 Jordan - Buckethead Jordan - Buckethead Cover Art

Insane
only
insane man
I love this song

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

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)

9 Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses Cover Art

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.

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

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

They were very silly to not include this in smash hits

10 Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine Bulls On Parade - Rage Against the Machine Cover Art

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

The Contenders
11 Hot for Teacher - Van Halen Hot for Teacher - Van Halen Cover Art

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

12 Stricken - Disturbed Stricken - Disturbed Cover Art

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

13 Before I Forget - Slipknot Before I Forget - Slipknot Cover Art

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

14 Six - All that Remains Six - All that Remains Cover Art
15 Iron Man - Black Sabbath Iron Man - Black Sabbath Cover Art

Good song but why isn't paranoid on this list

Riff owns every single time

16 When You Were Young - The Killers When You Were Young - The Killers Cover Art

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.

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

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

17 My Name Is Jonas - Weezer
18 The Trooper - Iron Maiden The Trooper - Iron Maiden Cover Art

Where is the Iron Maiden on this list

Best iron maiden song ever

19 Slow Ride - Foghat Slow Ride - Foghat Cover Art
20 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica Cover Art

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

My all time favorite Metallica song of all time

Should be in the TOP TEN

21 What I've Done - Linkin Park What I've Done - Linkin Park Cover Art

This song deserves better... This is the best Linkin Park song ever! Just go and watch their live concerts.

I remember playing this song a few times on beginner and easy on guitar hero world tour

this is one of my favorite songs on guitar hero. this song should be in the top ten.

22 Down with the Sickness - Disturbed Down with the Sickness - Disturbed Cover Art
23 Hangar 18 - Megadeth Hangar 18 - Megadeth Cover Art

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!
