Very Fun for a Metal Song Dead Player
I really don't know how to start this review. The only thing I can say is that this song is freaking hillarious, and the novelty alone might be what makes this song.

So basicaly, this epic masterpiece is sung by the singer of Butthole Surfers, and it is a gripping tale about how a man got his hotrod built by Jesus to go out and "dingaling lang his dingalong ling long", aswell as making a trailer park to haul his world around (while questioning himself "why why why why?"). Now these lyrics are some of the silliest shit I have ever seen in my life, and singing this with the cheesy accent of Gibby Haynes is not only hillarious trying to pull off yourself, but it will surely make you the laughstock of the whole living room (if that is a good thing).

Lyrics or not, the song also have the advantage of having alot of vocals with only empty spaces during the guitar solo and the main riff after the intro and it uses talkies to avoid extreme akwardness at times. Seriously, it is an unusual thing for a Metal song to have this much singing without long, boring breaks outside the guitar solo's, which makes it all the more fun.

So unless you have a rather dull sence of humor, this will be alot of fun to sing. But since it floats so much on the novelty value, it gets a weak 5* rather than a strong (like that makes any difference in the bigger picture).

Perfect Bass Pedal Practice Dead Player
Now what we have here is what I like to call a "trainer song". A song that not necesarily have alot of things that usualy makes a chart fun, but that have alot of potential at helping you improve your skills instead.

What we have here is a song that consists mainly of a simplified double bass rythm going on for the whole song on a speed around 140bmp with some very few fills at the end of certain parts of the song. How is this a good thing? Simply because it gives you alot of room for practicing proper foot pedal work and building up stamina over time.

Sure, it is not something you pop on to have a great time there and then, but it can really help you start enjoy songs like The Great Satan and Sulfur later on that are fun songs (if you can do them). But it isn't only the apperantice drummer who can benefitt from this chart, even a more advanced drummer who want's to start doing double bass stuff can use this song to train their left foot.

All in all, it is one you should get if you are interested in having something to train your foot stamina and rythm.

Jesus was a Race Car Maker Lowlander2
With a song title like Jesus Built My Hotrod, I was expecting barrelloads of fun on every instrument. But when I got to drums, I knew I'd backed the wrong horse this time.

Jesus Built My Hotrod is simple yet hard on drums. The song stretches out forever and you perform a continuous 4th hihat/snare combo. Oh yeah, and bass. Lots of bass. This song will hurt your foot and it would be advisable to whip out another pedal if you want an FC.

But why would you want an FC on this song anyway? Drums are painful and, due to the extreme repetition, not fun at all. Save your points and get...well, I'm not sure right now. The Police or something.

Ding a ding dang my dang a long ling long. Lowlander2
Remember that really explicit song in Guitar Hero 2 "Who Was In My Room Last Night"'? Well, the lead singer of the Butthole Surfers takes over from Al Jourgenson to sing us a song about religiously built drag racers. How does this translate to you when you take the microphone?

At the beginning and end of JBMH are narration bits which are pretty funny. In between them (aka, the song) is the main bit of the song. Singing is harder than the tiering gives it credit, due to the sporadic spikes in pitch and difficulty of hearing the singer. Overall, it's not terribly hard to song, and if you get the melody down once, you can do it again.

And again.

And again.
