Worst Guitar Hero Songs of All Time

The worst Guitar Hero songs of all time. And I mean actual Guitar Hero songs from GH1, 2 and 3. Not Rock Band, not Downloadable Content, and not Custom Songs. I had a tough time choosing the order of the songs. But here it is.

**Note** 1 is the ALL TIME worst guitar hero song.

The Top Ten

1 Yes We Can

Worst song ever! I have no idea what Dead! And My name is Jonas are doing on here.

Lithium by nirvana? Savior by rise against? One by Metallica?!?
What dumbass created this list

This song is utter crap

This song is downright terrible. And boring.

2 In the Belly of a Shark - Gallows

Not sure what you guys are talking about, this song is great!

This song is weak. And also why the hell is through the fire and flames on here? That song is the best!

No actual rhythm is established, not only that but there is awkward key arrangements for when you play - jeremykloss

too... much... yelling... bye...

3 Before I Forget - Slipknot

I don't think this song is bad--I just want to make a shoutout and say that so many people are retarded and don't know music when they hear it: Before I Forget, One, and BYOB are awesome.

The thing that pissed me off the most is the fact that Beast and the Harlot is on here. The bastards that put it on there and the bastards that voted for it I will find and beat to the brink of death.

It's not a terrible song, but it was just such a pain to play on Guitar Hero. The main riff was especially tedious, and results in hand cramps almost every time. Slipknot's not a bad band, but this song is really a nuisance to play in the game. - Cjs295

it was a very good song, but it didn't fit guitar hero at all

Song's great, but note placement? Not so much. - MKBeast

4 Yes We Can - Made In Mexico

This Song Sucks So Bad It Has Two Spots On This Lists LoL - FettiMC

5 Beast and the Harlot - Avenged Sevenfold

ya the band ruined it but Avenged Sevenfold does not suck they won best new artist have a major record label and there new album that is coming out some of the songs have already hit the billboard top 100 - 987654

I love the guitar playing, drums, and the sound to it, but the lyrics are really bad and evil. I think that's why this is on this list

This song is awesome, also Avenged Sevenfold is one of my favorite bands. But the reason why it's on there is because GH2 remade it and turned it into some punk pop song.

this song was too hard in expert mode!
its unreal

7 Re-Ignition - Bad Brains

If you think about it, the only good thing is how fun the guitar playing is. still, the rhythm, lyrics and guitar are constant! GAH!

Never played yes we can which guitar hero game is that even on I've managed to miss it somehow? This is worst one I have played re ig nit ionn

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

This song is awesome, can't believe two haters can bring this down.

Good song, pretty hard on all instruments, and one of the more underrated political metal bands

I'll get 30 thumbs down for this but who cares'

The singer sounds like an old man screaming in pain - sharp10

9 Down 'n Dirty - LA Slum Lords
10 Through the Fire and the Flames - Dragonforce

WHY IS ONE ON HERE? THAT IS A GREAT SONG! Dragonforce is a horrible repetitive band. They have the same drum beat in almost all of their songs. They use effects and make intermediate playing sound crazy, and it is really boring. I can not play this song more than one time in a row before I get bored. It should have never been on smash Hits. Dragonforce is only famous because of Guitar Hero, and that is just pathetic. They should just quit playing music and go back to sitting in front of a video game! - gibsonrock53

No doubt I love Dragonforce, but there are much better songs then this song. Surprisingly, this wasn't the first dragonforce song I heard unlike most people. Put better Dragonforce songs in games, Dragonforce is still awesome I'm not hating on them or the song I'm just saying they have better songs - Frantic713

People in vastly increasing amounts can't differentiate between "good" and "fast" in regards to rock music. The existence of fans of this band proves this.

I think dragonforce is a very good band, even though all of there songs are insanely fast, why is this on the list?

The Contenders

11 21st Century Schizoid Man - King Crimson

Best song in the series, no question about that. Through the Fire and Flames and the top 3 songs on this list are spot on, but really? Have you even listened to this song? It's a masterpiece.

Why exactly is this on here? This is a prog rock masterpiece.

12 Red Lottery - Megasus

Bonus track on GH2. The easiest song to ever feature in a guitar hero game. You just play the same riff over and over again for what seems like an eternity. The song is also truly horrible.

Can't anyone else notice this? This song should be 3,2, or maybe even rival Yes We Can by taking #1. Not many people play this bonus song, but if you do, you will regret it. Come on, vote people!

They sound like Black Sabbath except offkey, offtone and untalented.

13 Toy Boy - Stuck in the Sound
14 Dead! - My Chemical Romance
15 My Name is Jonas - Weezer

Something isn't right when Weezer shares space with Slayer and Dragonforce.

Weezer is awful. They have no talent and they aren't even band worthy. They have an awful drummer and the singer is awful.

As a disgrace to Alternative music and even to Pop, Weezer is a band that deserves to be buried alive. - SonicCoilWound


16 The Seeker - The Who

The who are a great band don't see why this song is one the list

17 Savior - Rise Against

Why the hell is this on the list!?

Thus song is awesome!

HOW!? Savoir is a great song!

18 Slow Ride - Foghat

Wow I have to say seeing Beast and the Harlot on this list made me lose faith in all of humanity.

Holy crap this song is easy! But, when you listen to it it just gets annoying after a while, but I don't think this song should be on the list.

Just because this song is easy doesn't mean its bad ) It's a great classic song.

Annoying song. Repeats the same easy notes and the song lasts too long.

19 Go That Far - Bret Michaels
20 Mauvais Garcon - Naast

Why... the... living mother of hell is Beast and the Harlot doing on here?

What the hell are they saying in thus song?! Dead, Beast and the Harlot, and One shouldn't be on here. They're great songs.

Guys this song is French! If you don't know, look up translated lyrics! Its not good but its not bad so.

People voting this song because they don't understand the lyrics to it? Seriously? - LemonComputer
