That's tha Homie      "Synth the OK" SlayerIsTheStuff
Yo Dawgy Dogg! It'sha bouy Snoop Dogg! I'mma tell ya about this song's Guitar part.

During the chorus, it's a bunch of easy to hit notes with a few HO/PO's.

During the verses, the Guitar has a bunch of variety. 3-note sustains, a couple fast strumming part, and a bunch of fun to play HO/PO's!

Good Guitar part. Buy it for Snoopy, Dawg!

Insanity of the Atoms      "Good chart, nasty drum solo" zyyzyyzyy
Very fun song. I love the drum beat that goes on throughout the song, it's unique and fun to play. It's very challenging because some places require double tapping and it's rather complex, but it's something most good drummers should enjoy. The replay value of this song is extremely high.

However, this song has a drum solo that is very difficult because of questionable charting- there are quite a few places that should've been charted as lanes but instead aren't and move more than 16 NPS. Unlike the drum solos in Synesthesia, Beast and the Harlot, and If 6 was 9, it's actually not terribly difficult to pass, but hitting everything is almost impossible, especially if you don't have a four-figure kit that picks up every single note and resists the roll limit. It's just not that fun to play at all.

I'd give the song an A+ for the two choruses, main riff, bridge, and outro, and a D for the drum solo. I guess an A+ for five sections and a D for one section averages out to an A-, so that's what I'm giving this song.

Celebration      "Very Repetitive" SirPuttsAlot
While I enjoy listening to the song itself, it's very easy and repetitive. I was having a hard time getting a FC on this song and took 3 tries b/c I kept losing interest in it 1/2 way through.

I can't say much about the other instruments, but this is lacking when it comes to drums.

Wake Me Up      "Drums = Very Boring" SirPuttsAlot
This is not a very fun song to play and very repetitive. Most of the time it doesn't feel like an Expert Charted Song, but more like the Medium Drums from Green Grass and High Tides.

It's fun to listen too, but no so much to play.

Hell Ain't a Bad Place to Be (Live)      "Snorefest" zyyzyyzyy
There isn't much to this song. They're a a few tricky fills but that's about it. Basic drum beat for a few minutes that doesn't change much.

The Jack (Live)      "Pretty underrated" zyyzyyzyy
I don't understand the low rating at all. This song is actually decent on drums. The drum beat is unlike any other you've seen from AC/DC, and there's more variations than normal for this band. It's also six minutes long and offers some fun stuff. You definetly won't go wrong with this if you had to pick this for a setlist. With that being said, it's easy and probably not too appealing to an elite drummer, but I don't see what the big problem with this is...

Highway to Hell (Live)      "Better than you'd expect, but not strong" zyyzyyzyy
Not hard at all, although there are some flashy fills in the song, as well as some variation. However, the beat is too basic and doesn't show any sort of challenge or anything special, which prevents me from giving this a four-star. The playability value just isn't entirely there. There just isn't much to this song, so I'm not going to go into full detail about this. It's just an average tier 0 song.

Moneytalks (Live)      "Very easy" zyyzyyzyy
It's a super easy drum beat with easy fills for four minutes. There isn't even a BRE at the end, that's all it is. Easy money FC for good drum players. And that's about it, not really much to see here.

Working Man      "Excellent, but Vault Edition is better" zyyzyyzyy
This song is very fun to play on drums. It has every bit of the same good stuff as the Vault Edition does. However, this song doesn't sound anywhere near as good as the Vault Edition and the drum chart feels a bit looser and is less accurate than WMVE. Regardless, it's still very fun to play, but if you had to pick one, pick the Vault Edition instead. Either way, both songs are excellent. The hard drum roll at the end is in this version too, except slightly slower and has some spaces in between.

Working Man (Vault Edition)      "Among the best drum charts ever" zyyzyyzyy
Working Man (Vault Edition) is among the most prestigious DLC that Harmonix has ever released. Many Rush songs are considered the best on drums, and this song is the best of those Rush songs. The drum chart is almost completely flawless, the beat is both fun to play and not too challenging. All of the fills are fun to play and doable for most drummers as well. Many new expert drummers will like this song because it's Rush and it's not hard to learn at all. Some of the better expert drum players will like this song just because it's fun and not that hard to GS. And the elite drum players will like it too because they're a a drum roll near the end of the song that only the best of the best drum players will be able to hit perfectly. There's even a BRE at the end of the song!

This song is just amazing on drums. This isn't just a great drum chart for a song, this is THE gold standard for a great drum chart for a song. There is very, very, very few songs on Rock Band that compares to this.

Indians      "A refined Caught in A Mosh drum chart" zyyzyyzyy
It's very similar to Caught in a Mosh, except that it's slightly slower. This is actually huge, because it's easier to keep up with everything and not get as tired. But the drum beats are mostly the same. The only differences in the beats is that the drum beat in the second half of the Caught in the Mosh drum solo with triple kicks is all over Indians, the guitar solo is unique in drums, and there is no drum solo in Indians. This song is more fun than Caught in a Mosh since it's more doable and gets more creative in the guitar solo.

Also, this is probably the easiest Anthrax drum song (save for I'm The Man). I don't exactly recommend this to a new expert drummer, but a decent drummer should be able to pass this without much trouble. It's tricky though.

Painkiller      "A mixed bag" zyyzyyzyy
It's rare for a song on Rock Band to have a drum solo, but it's even rarer for a Rock Band song to have more than one drum solo. That's the case for this song, as there is two drum solos, one at the beginning and one at the end of song. Both are pretty fun to play, especially the latter.

However, everything between the two drum solos is meh. It's pretty repetitive and switches between two beats every minute or so with very little variation of any significance. It can actually get a little bit boring if you're good enough to hit the beat with no problem. Most of the song either a mildly fast pattern with three kicks between each snare, the second of which has a yellow note, and the snare being paired with a yellow note as well, or a beat that looks like Sleepwalker slowed way down. This stuff goes on for six minutes and doesn't really get all that interesting to a good player, while easily failing out a bad player.

Overall, it's an okay song to play, but it isn't something I would really play over and over again for the sake of doing so. The best way to describe this song would be "Two epic solos separated by an endless sea of triple-kick beats and other stuff that shows up over and over again"

Suicide Note Pt. II      "INSANELY fast strumming" zyyzyyzyy
According to the ScoreHero Top 100 Rock Band Bass FCs, this is ranked #23 overall, being the highest ranked DLC song on the list and the second highest ranked non-RBN song (Visions is #14). And believe me, this song is WELL deserving of that rank.

That really fast drum beat you're hearing in the back? You'll be strumming twice as fast as the drum beat! I don't know how fast exactly the strumming is, but I'd estimate it's somewhere between 13-17 NPS. You need to be an absolute master at fast strumming, or you will have no chance to GS or even 5S this. It's actually not that hard to pass, but only because if you spam the strum bar so much with no sense of pattern you'll likely hit the vast majority of the notes in the fast strumming clusters (That should tell you how fast it is). This song on bass is up there with Nevermore (Morbid Angel RBN song, not the RB4 song) and Cimmerman Shamballa on guitar as the most difficult strumming songs on Rock Band.

I do recommend this song because it is a big challenge and it gets easier and more fun towered the end, but I have a few warnings about buying this song on bass. First, DO NOT buy this song on Rock Band 2, because then it will be impossible to FC and virtually impossible to GS due to the strumming limit. Also, by grinding this song, you may put your strumbar at risk of breaking. I am not exaggerating either of those warnings, I am actually being dead serious. Have fun and good luck!

Cry Thunder      "ASPOKDHFGPAWODJSB" SlayerIsTheStuff
I hate the Pro Keys chart of this song. It's just a bunch of sustains and it gets boring after 1 minute in. The LEGACY keys, however, is full of variety.

It still has sustains, yes, but it also has a bunch of HO/PO's after the first chorus. Other than the sustains, it's actually really fun. I don't know why the Pro Keys has less notes, though......

Buy it.

Cry Thunder      "Stop crying" SlayerIsTheStuff
The Bass charts for Operation Ground and Pound and Through the Fire and Flames are fun, but they're mainly fast strumming. This song is completely different.

There is a bunch of strumming, but it also has a bunch of HO/PO's going thoughout the song. It is really fun and has your hands moving up and down the neck.

A perfect example of the best way to make a power metal Bass chart without relying on fast strumming.

Never Let 'Em Hold Ya Back!      "Half mediocre, half good, but the good makes up for it" Nicolas-1223
For the first half of this song, you only play the horn part on guitar. It gets rather tedious after a while, and it's annoying because there's actual guitar under the horns. However, you start playing actual guitar during and after the build-up in the middle, including a kick-ass solo that more than makes up for the first half of the chart if you can hold out long enough. It's very fun to play and has the potential to throw you off.

Royals      "Guitarists: This kind of wub's just ain't for us" The Walrus
If you are exclusively a guitarist, you should know:

There are 116 notes in this song.

This song is ranked as easier than Grenade and We Will Rock You.

The first verse and chorus go by without you playing a note.

You are playing the "wubs" that are straight quarter notes.

That really should tell you everything you need to know.

Get it for that one guy at parties that only plays guitar but is always saying "But I can't do expert! It's too hard!" But don't get it if you want anything more.

England Rock Anthems      "Quite horrible" SlayerIsTheStuff
A bunch of chords in the first 10 seconds of the song, then you don't play anything throughout the song.

Here Comes Tomorrow      "Funnest C&O Guitar Chart" SlayerIsTheStuff
Most of the C&O Guitar parts are ok at best, but this one is completely different!

The intro and chorus charts are a bunch of HO/PO's chained by chords. This part is very fast and, to an extent, challenging. The verse charts are kinda boring, because it consists of only chord strums. However, the HO/PO section is the majority of the chart and these strums ONLY happen in the verses.

Fun Guitar part!

Hell Yeah      "ASDF Movie" SlayerIsTheStuff
This song's Bass is very slow and it feels like forever when I finish the song. It is basically all sustains with a very few HO/PO's, but even then, it happens for a few seconds before going to sustains.

Not for Bassists.

This song's Keys is a bunch of notes after the Guitar solo. It is kinda fast, but it's not that long and it stops abruptly.

Not fun at all.

Low Rider      "Ugh......................" SlayerIsTheStuff
I hate this Vocals chart, and not because the song is bad (far from it), but it is way undertiered. Why? Because I try to sing it how it is, but I always miss. And this is coming from someone who FC'd Heavy Weather - The Storm ov the Undead. The only saving grace is the ungodly amount of cowbell, but this doesn't count toward your score. Bad chart.

Teardrops Fall Like Rain      "Teardrops Fall like Rain......." SlayerIsTheStuff
....when I play this song's Keys chart.

Oh, there we go. A bunch of chords and a bunch of ascending and descending notes (that aren't fast) and there is a bunch of empty space that keeps on going....and going....and going.....and going.....and going......and going...and going....oh there's the thing from the beginning....now there's the empty space......and going.....and going.....and going.....and going......and there's the thing from the beginning....then the song ends.

Battle of Egos Intro      "Waiting...............oh there it is" SlayerIsTheStuff
The Vocals take forever to come in, but when they do come in, it is pretty fun. The only cons about this Vocal track is the waiting time and the shortness of the song.

Buy it, maybe, but I'd recommend Bass or Drums.
