The Guitar Hero game used to explode and was liked by many people. Starting from introducing us to the best rock and metal songs, especially classic ones, it is also a new game that is widely used as a venue for duels between players.
However, with only the Playstation 2 joystick, many gamers are able to conquer the hardest songs in the Guitar Hero series above. And in this listicle we have listed the 10 hardest Guitar Hero songs played with a joystick.
- Ozzy Osbourne – Bark at The Moon (Guitar Hero 1)
We open this list with Bark at The Moon being the most difficult song in the first Guitar Hero. Maybe this song is considered less difficult when compared to the other songs on this list. However, considering that this song appeared at a time when many gamers were not familiar with Guitar Hero’s joystick control mechanism. It can be ascertained that many victims failed from this song.
- Lynryd Skynryd – Free Bird (Guitar Hero 2)
This song is one of the longest songs in the history of Guitar Hero, which is about 9 minutes, at the same time being one of the hardest because the guitar solo is fast and difficult. Even so, this song also seems to be one of the gamers’ favorites, especially because many of them recognize this song from the GTA San Andreas game.
- Muse – Knight of Cydonia (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock)
One of the modern songs that made it into and not from metal bands. The combo variation of Knight of Cydonia isn’t really that complex. However, the length and row of key combos on the intro and guitar solo that you have to press might drive you crazy, especially on the Hard and Expert difficulty levels. Especially because you use a joystick.
- All That Remain – Six (Guitar Hero 2)
Maybe it’s one of the less popular ones on this list, because this song itself is not on the main song list but you have to buy it in the Store first. But when it comes to complex and fast guitar combos, this song is one of the most challenging in Guitar Hero 2.
- Metallica – One (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock)
It’s incomplete not to include Metallica on this list, because even though they have their own Guitar Hero game. However, only this song can be tasted with a joystick. And this song itself is considered very difficult because the combos are fast, stacked, and also change which makes this song seem impossible to win with a joystick on Difficulty Expert.
- Megadeth – Hangar 18 (Guitar Hero 2)
In its day, this song became one of the most avoided by players on the last stage. Apart from the fact that the other songs are “more famous”, this song itself is also very difficult, especially in the fast solo guitar part with a pretty crazy variation, of course, to make sure your combo is still full by using a joystick.
- Guitar Battle vs. Lou – The Devil Went Down To Georgia (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock)
As the song used as the final song against the final boss, this song is certainly one of the hardest songs to beat in the Guitar Hero III game. Especially if you use Hard and Expert difficulty. The song itself was originally a metal cover, because the original song was a country song. But of course this song cannot be underestimated.
- Slayer – Raining Blood (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock)
Many consider this one song to be the hardest song in Guitar Hero history. One reason this song is not at number 1 is of course due to the issue of popularity, but for the difficulty of this song itself can actually be contested. Because the tempo of this song is very fast with a combination of one row button and a variety of buttons. And in fact this song is the only song on Guitar Hero that has a 5-key combo.
- Buckethead – Jordan (Guitar Hero 2)
It cannot be denied that it is one of the trickiest songs in the series, as this song itself is a full guitar solo. And because Buckethead himself is actually the guitarist for Guns n Roses beside Slash. Then you can expect a guitar solo of 4 minutes with all the variations of the combo. Moreover, this song is one of the logos with the highest number of notes when doing a combo.
- Dragonforce – Through The Fire And Flames (Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock)
Did you guess? Overrated? Not feasible? But the fact is that Through The Fire And Flames, or TTFAF for short, is certainly one of the most played songs by players on Guitar Hero at any difficulty level with a relatively high failure rate. Because this song itself has an opening guitar solo with the most difficult combination which causes the majority of players to fail in 5% of the song. In fact, because of the difficulty of this song, it turned out that TTFAF was originally going to be used as the final song against Lou. However, because it was too difficult, finally this song was replaced with The Devil Went Down To Georgia and TTFAF was placed as a bonus song.
And those were the 10 hardest songs that you can play using a joystick. Regardless of what difficulty you use, these songs themselves may become a part of your childhood memory where you end up getting to know the best rock and metal songs in the whole world and maybe keep listening to them or even learn guitar because of this game.
