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

It resembles a song in that it has a verse, chorus, etc... aand that's about it. Just weird, random, off the mark.

This song is utter crap

2 Down 'n Dirty - LA Slum Lords
4 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

I'm only voting for this because the band gh2 brought in to remake it ruined it. - guitarplayer440

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.

5 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'

I Don't Get Why Everyone Likes This Song It's Crap

6 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

Don't misunderstand me, I LOVE Slipknot! But they have many songs that would have fitted better in GH than BIF. Maybe Left Behind or Disasterpiece...

7 Savior - Rise Against

Why the hell is this on the list!?

Thus song is awesome!

HOW!? Savoir is a great song!

8 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.

Pointlessly hard retarded song. Herman Li is an amazing guitarist but all of dragonforce sounds the same! By the way Beast and the Harlot shouldn't be on here. It is an amazing song. - moose4life19

9 Laughtrack
10 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...

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.

The filtered voice makes me feel sick, and the constant solos are just... *BLERGG*

12 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

13 Sabotage - Beastie Boys

I have no idea what this is doing on Guitar Hero. Couldn't they replace with Whole Lotta Love or something

@SonicCoilWound rock and rap should never mix? Explain Rage Against the Machine.

This game is called guitar hero. Not white pseudo-rap hero. - deadgrass27

Rock and Rap should never mix. White people should never Rap. Put them both together? - SonicCoilWound

14 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.

15 Raining Blood - Slayer

Why could you put one of my favorite songs ever on the list?

Oh my what a horrible list this is I bet all of these great songs are on here because "It's too Hard" just because a song is hard to play in a VIDEO GAME doesn't mean it's a bad song - christangrant

Laugh out loud lilbullet111, how dare you call Slayer Death Metal, I mean Come on, Behemoth, Cannibal Corspe and Countless Other Bands are Considered Death Metal, but if you think SLAYER is Death metal, You are Wrong in the Head, Slayer is THRASH metal, like Megadeth and Anthrax.

Some people are retarded this song is one of the best thrash metal songs and bands along w/ megadeth anthrax and Metallica

16 Dead! - My Chemical Romance
17 Go that Far - Bret Michaels
18 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


19 Talk Dirty to Me - Poison

Poison is one of the worst bands of all time. Bret Michaels deserves nothing more than death. A long, painful, death. - SonicCoilWound

With all the good songs out their how did this end up on the game? - Chris113

This is the only list poison deserves
I didn't want to, but I had to, beat GH3 because this was on there. I was not looking forward to one of the greatest GH having this song.

20 One - Metallica

Who the hell puts this on the list?

Lol, the guy who put this on here probably couldn't pass the solo on medium mode and decided to put this on here in his fury. This is a great song.

This is one (pun slightly intended) of the greatest songs ever made! - Tylerlangford1234

WHO IN THE CRAP PUT THIS ON THE LIST! Heck, the guy who made this list, must've listened to re ig ni tion

21 Elephant Bones

Great song I love this song

22 Tattooed Love Boys - Pretenders

Idiot song, it's too crappy and the singer sounds like a man, even though (I guess) it's a woman.

There are better songs by the pretenders like don't get me wrong it is one of the weaker songs in a great game guitar hero 2

23 Less Talk More Rokk - Freezepop

Stupid, there's no guitar in it

24 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.

25 Yes We Can - Made In Mexico

This song is unbearable.

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

26 Institutionalized - Suicidal Tendencies


Whoever made this list does not know me

27 Do You Feel Like We Do? - Peter Frampton

Guys this song is good - HenryMan73

The hardest part about this song is staying awake for the whole thing.

13 Minutes of pure torture on GH5

28 Shout at the Devil - Motley Crue

Even though Motley Crue is a good band, this song is just way too easy on Guitar Hero. And why is Slipknot number 1! Slipknot is one of the best bands I have ever heard! - BPJ0315

Why before I forget that's a good song same with beast and the harlot one blob for real

Who put this on the list? Just because its easy does NOT mean its bad, I mean its first tier lmao

29 Don't Hold Back
30 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath

What the holy of all good person put this in the worst song on guitar hero above what I have done!

Who the hell put this song on here?

Black Sabbath are amazing, who put this here?

This song sucks and is rubbish. You guys must hate
This stupid
Blurb son

31 Toy Boy - Stuck in the Sound
32 Bangarang - Skrillex

This song is not even in the game, but it is in the new Guitar Hero.

But this game is called Guitar Hero and I believe there is guitar in the song, hell there is even a guitar solo.

But I see why this is on the list.

What, I was watching a chart of a custom and it was a guitar cover so I don't know what the real song will be like, very sorry.

Why the hell would a Skrillex song be in a game called Guitar Hero? there's litteraly no guitars used in this song whatsoever - christangrant

33 Lemon Frosting - Bunny Knutson

This is an awesome song got 11 stars on it.

34 If You Want Peace...Prepare for War - Children of Bodom

For the person dying they don't like death metal, I'll have you know this MELODIC death metal and that children if bodom is not straight death metal and you don't know what your talking about

Is badass playing this on guitar hero.

Ugh. I hate death metal. - THADVARRRR

35 The Metal - Tenacious D

Why is this a bad song?

No matter what you say

No-one can destroy the metal,
The metal will strike you down with a vicious blow - christangrant

36 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

37 California King Bed - Rihanna
38 I Knew You Were Trouble - Lostprophets

Ugh. Lostprophets. I used to think they were good until I found out the lead singer is a baby raper. Automatic vote.

39 Lithium - Nirvana

I'm sorry if you like Nirvana, but I personally hate them, and I'd gladly have this as #1 instead of Before I Forget.

40 Down With Disease - Phish

Song has no pattern arangement exept for dumb ones.

41 Killing in the Name - Rage Against the Machine

The song is good, but the cover of this song in GH2 isn't good. - ReakMayhem

42 Crazy On You - Heart

No rhythm, it is difficult to notify the keys in relation to the music/song as they do not contrast with one another, this is why it should be on the list

43 The Seeker - The Who

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

44 It's Only Another Parsec... - RX Bandits

This song isn't bad, I just think it's really boring

I think this song is great. Who even voted for this?

45 Pretty Vacant - Sex Pistols
46 No More Sorrow - Linkin Park
47 Kool Thing - Sonic Youth
48 Berzerk - Eminem

Really? This is on here? Just because it's so easy? - LemonComputer

49 3's and 7's - Queens of the Stone Age

Awful song, can't stand this band. The song is so random and you can't hear what the singer is saying. How is this not even on this side yet loads of decent songs are.

50 All Star - Smash Mouth
