So, I've played all the songs I have with Grohl (Nirvana, Foo Fighters, bands he was a guest on, etc). And the achievement didn't pop...

Anyone get this yet? Do anything special? Is "band" in the title to indicate you have to have at least 2 people playing? I did try it solo, if that matters...

Thanks!

Hmm I just did it from the band goals menu and I got it. Try there?

cant guarentee this but try songs that actually have him as a band member cause you said you used songs he was a guest on

I got it from 5 Foo Fighters songs.

I did not get the Face Melter achievement, despite playing 3 on disc 80's metal guitar songs, so it's possible there are some problems or unclear requirements.

It has to be DLC songs played, on-disc/exports won't count for the achievement.

I can't find this challenge in the challenge menu, does anyone have any ideas where it is? (I've found almost all of them, but I cant seem to find this exact one)

I think I seen it under the Band challenges...

On an unrelated note, I'm looking for a band to do the Road Challenges. Interested?

I don't think there is a challenge associated with it. It's just an achievement. I'm looking right now and it is not in my list of challenges.

I swear I seen it when I was playing... hold on...

EDIT: Rock Band > Downloaded Song Goals > Second Column, Second Row

I can't check exactly where, but I know it's listed in challenges/goals somewhere. Press green on it to get taken to a list of eligible songs for the achievement.

Okay, I think I have it figured it out. It only appears IF you can complete it. That position for me is The Customizer - Earn 2* on 100 downloaded songs. I must not have 5 Grohl songs on this disc, so I don't have that challenge.

Makes sense... kind of. It's an achievement as well so you'd think it would at least say you couldn't complete it instead of omitting it...

And how did they pull off shipping RB3 with 1250? Did they cut a deal since they never invested any more achievements into RB2?

It didn't. It shipped with 1000, that's all you can get without DLC. According to GamerScore rules they can add up to 250 GS in the first quarter from DLC. HMX chose to release 250 points on Day 1.

That seems kind of odd that they'd count Nine Inch Nails even though he wasn't with the ban until recently... AFAIK "Last" and "Capital G" are the only 2 on that list that Grohl actually drummed for.

Same with Garbage, IIRC he only drummed for "Bad Boyfriend" not "Why do you love me"

But the achievement isn't for songs he played on. It's for songs by bands he has been a member of, so it makes perfect sense.

I do have to say, though, the description of this Achievement is a bit misleading.

Since he never was a member of both NIN and Garbage and only did session work on their albums, I was expecting NIN and Garbage not to count.

I can confirm that DLC related goals only appear when you have the necessary songs to complete them. I would assume that this applies to exports and track packs, as well.

I also don't have this achievement unlocked, I have beaten six songs already. I am not sure which ones I beat they may have been on the disc.

The main point that everyone has missed is that this should unlock when you play ANY of the songs as it does not state DLC... HARMONIX and EA have the worst QA teams ever!!! SERIOUSLY!!!

Actually, you've missed the point. It's in the DLC Challenge section so it does state that it has to be DLC.

I'm pretty sure this has to be done with a band. I'm experiencing trouble with the NIN 200 streak. I've gotten 600 streak on Guitar and it hasn't popped. This might be online be able to be done on the drums/bass. I have to find it in the goals

The NIN achievement can be done solo, but it must be done on drums.
