Lying From You       non_zero
Probably the best of the Linkin Park drum tracks. Has a good variety of patterns and some fills, not too awkward or electronic.

Awake       non_zero
This Godsmack track doesn't disappoint. Along the lines of I Stand Alone it has a variety of beats (disco beat included) and plenty of fills throughout, though doesn't quit match the intricacy and frequency of I Stand Alone's fills.

Like a Stone       non_zero
A very repetitive beat with pretty much no fills. Not terrible but not something you'd ever be itching to play again.

Last One to Die       non_zero
This song is relatively simple but has a fun pace, alternating between a standard punk beat and a cymbal bashing section that precedes each verse. There's a left-hand leading drum fill that pops up two or three times that's pretty fun to play, and the rest of the fills are just non-standard enough to keep you on your toes.

Overall this song has a place in my casual drumming favorites.

Falling Away from Me      "These lanes are stupid" non_zero
The trick to hitting the tremolo lane sections is to stop strumming slightly before the end of the lane, then start strumming at the beginning of the next one.

The way you have to coax the game into not breaking your combo pretty much kills this song on guitar, feels very unnatural and not fun. Either way it would've been a below average experience... but every little bit helps.

Cheesy Pop Song       non_zero
Song has a lot of variety, the chord changing sections are about as fun as chord changing sections can get, and the banjo parts give plenty of solo-y fun.

We Built This City       non_zero
Practically non-existent for the first 2 minutes, then you get some moderately entertaining chord strumming, then in the last 20 seconds you have the solo from hell.

So, it's not fun for a player of any conceivable skill level.

1969      "WHAT IS THIS" non_zero
Starts out really simple but the solo is just the biggest pile of random off-beat notes that speed up and slow down with no discernible rhythm. And the HO/POs in it also completely unintuitive, lots of forced strums so you're pretty much on your toes the entire time. Not a good guitar song to say the least.

Closer to the Edge       non_zero
Extremely fast, repetitive and tedious song to play. It's a computer generated synth line that clearly wasn't meant for a live performance.

Ziggy Stardust       non_zero
I didn't expect much but in between the slightly dull verses there's a really cool beat with some interesting snare fills.

The ending can easily ruin an FC though, it's one of those cymbal roll lanes that I'm never quite sure when to start or stop.

The Thrill Is Gone       non_zero
This being a blues song I wasn't expecting much, but it actually pretty fun and engaging, especially for it being such a long song. A nice swinging kick beat for the majority of the song, with several fills thrown in to break up the small tinge of monotony you might feel.

Stayin' Alive       non_zero
Pretty boring beat for most of the song, with a 3 or 4 curveballs thrown in, two of which are potential combo breakers. Not really enjoyable on drums.

Wanted Dead or Alive (RB3 version)      "Improved from RB1" non_zero
Still a pretty average song, but if you were put off by the omission of the drum roll in RB1, or annoyed by the ending cymbal slow-down, both of those things are addressed here. They've been outfitted with the new RB3 drum roll notation.

Let There Be Rock (Live)       non_zero
This song is an abomination. Chances are you thought Let There Be Rock in RB2 was on the boring side, and to everyone's surprise it was not made better by speeding it up to twice its original speed and dragging the song out even longer than the original. It's just not fun, at all.

Hangar 18      "Do you like to stand around and do nothing?" non_zero
In this song there's not very much for the vocalist to do. You get some verses at the beginning of the song but then the other instruments take it from there, there isn't even percussion to keep you occupied. The time that you are singing it's really nothing special. Vocalists should probably stay away.

The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)      "Awesome song, very hard" non_zero
This is a fantastically fun song to sing, however it's extremely difficult. I consider myself to know the song pretty well and a lot of the sections are not intuitively charted (as far as I can tell), I feel like I'd have to sing like a robot to actually hit everything.

If it's just me and I suck at this song let me know and I'll reconsider my rating.

The Dope Show       non_zero
You don't play for a fair amount of the song, but the guitar solo-y riffs that are there make this song tolerable. Just don't expect anything amazing.

The Dope Show       non_zero
Kind of a slow song, with a slow bass chart, but you get a steady supply of notes (unlike guitar), and some HO/PO's. For the pace of the song it's got a fair amount of variety.

1901       non_zero
Starts out simple with some nice synthy held notes, then you go into your typical bass strumming... but then the chorus comes and out of nowhere you start strumming triplets, then quintuplets (is that a thing?), and leading out of the chorus you actually get some bass chords, which is a nice rarity.

Some may think it's nothing special, but I enjoyed the hell out of it when I played it. It kept me on my toes.

Low (Travis Barker Remix)      "What's all the hype about?" non_zero
I've heard a lot about how fun this song is on drums and it turns out it's really not that much. You get a moderately fun hi-hat roll, then you get some tom sections that are not really fun at all, and in between you get some tom fills, which are pretty fun. So yeah, I'd say the tom fills make this song fun, and the hi-hat pattern makes it tolerable, and the tom sections can die in a fire.

Average song if you ask me.

(If You're Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To      "You'll be wondering if Flea played bass in this song" non_zero
This song is so varied and challenging that it'll completely throw you off guard, being a Weezer song and all. Lots of back and forth HO/PO'ing, some trills, some fast strumming, some stuttered strumming, there's really not a dull moment in here except for the short period of silence near the end of the song. Recommended to bassists, and even guitarists.

íViva La Gloria!      "Fast punk song with some surprises" non_zero
Takes a minute or so to get to the drums, and then it turns into a fast punk song out of nowhere. There's a constant cymbal, the bass beat switches between double hits and skipped hits, and there's semi-frequent short snare rolls. In the middle of the song you do a triple bass with a slow hi-hat/snare rhythm.

Then at the end of the song you get fast snare triplets, every so often leading into a crash cymbal. This part will probably make some people fail since it comes in pretty abruptly and it's pretty fast as well.

If you like speed you'll like this song.

Duality      "For fans of Slipknot or fast strumming" non_zero
The guitar on this song doesn't have much to offer, most of it is strumming at a steady (fast) pace while changing colors frequently. Then during the chorus you strum slower. That's pretty much it. You probably have to really like this song to enjoy its guitar chart.

Duality      "Fast and varied, but a bit frustrating" non_zero
Most of the non-chorus parts of this song is a pretty fast drum beat, the kind with off-beat bass where you alternate hi-hat and snare a lot. There's a lot of fast double hits mixed in too and a person who isn't pretty good at drums will probably be very frustrated by these sections.

In the rest of the song there are numerous fills and stuff to keep you entertained, and there's a lot of off-beat bass in it. There's also a bunch of parts where you do a moderate tempo constant bass beat (the way Rock band usually does for stripping down double-bass) and some triple-snare rolls that encourage you to lead with your left.

This song is not for inexperienced drummers, you'll probably have a hard time keeping a combo throughout most of the song. That being said, it's not really tier 6 material so you do have hope of passing it.

Psychosocial      "Easiest of the Slipknot drums" non_zero
This is the most tame of the Slipknot songs. It start off with some offbeat stuff and a drum roll that is a little misleading, because then it goes into a pretty leisurely drum beat with a non-constant hi-hat. Every so often there's a crazy fill but it's nothing that'll fail you. There's a breakdown section too that offers more variety.

The outro is probably why this is rated tier 5, but even so it seems a little overtiered. Basically it makes you do a fast double-bass hit in various ways with other assorted notes until the song ends. Average skilled people may have trouble keeping a combo here.

Overall I think it was an enjoyable chart.
