I have all Guitar Hero games, and I think the WORST POSSIBLE song has to be Raining Blood out of all three games. I just can't stand the song. It has no beat, if you screw up one note your basically boned. My confession is truly that I failed the song on EASY. Yes, I did....Last night I was going crazy to 5* RB. I found a good tactic.

Put your band music down to 0.

I cannot explain how much I hate the DRUMS!!! Their sound drains out my guitar sound, so I can't hear me play! When I put my band to 0 last night, I noticed a great difference. Normally on Medium I would score 95k-100k, but with 0, I got 120k-125k. I believe the 5* cutoff was 126-130k or something.

Anyways, if your ever stuck on this song, put the band to 0, or maybe even the FX. I never tried that.

Anyways, here is my tip for beating/5*-ing the WORSE song ever on GH3.

Thanks, and rock on guys:rock

EDIT: I know that some people are worked up because they either are mad at me or like the song. I'm only saying that I'm expressing my opinion. I really hate the song. You can't bash me for that because I'm not bashing the song myself.

I have to agree with you. Maybe not the worst song ever in a GH game, but not a great one... and I think it has less to do with the game and more with the song. There is a "chorus" in it, but it happens 3/4 the way through the song and happens just the one time. Bane of my existence.

Anyways, I will try your tip since there is no rhythm or pattern to the song...

'Mosh 1' is the only hard part in the song basically. If you save the 2 star power phrases you get before entering the scales, you'll have a good chance of beating the song.

You think it's worse than "Yes we can" in GH2?!

I will try this out the next time i get on GH3. That song has it's boot firmly up my ass and i will do anthing to get it out. And I was failing on easy too :eek:

Yes actually. I would much rather play a song with crappy lyrics than a song with a crappy beat.

I finally got through mosh 1 without the need of starpower, only thing I can say is practice the speed of the hopo's. Once you can hit the set of 4 notes on consistant basis, start trying the slide to hit the sets of 2. Finally throw in the practice of adding the chords jammed in the middle. I went from failing at mosh 1 with star power to not needing it in one day.

Send a friend request (GT= RHopkins) with a message saying you are from here and I'll try giving more advice if possible.

Goodluck, this is a tough song! Rock on!

Thanks for the tip, this is the only song I have not five starred in the easy career (haven't even gotten 4 in 3 or 4 attempts) and I'm sure I will have trouble with it when I get to the final tier of medium. I will give this a try and hopefully get through it more easily.

I'm not starting a fight, or flaming you, but what makes the song so appealing to you? I would like an imput from a guy who likes the song

La Grange only sucks because it is such a horrible horrible cover.

11-02-2007, 03:11 AM
well it might not be appealing to you cause well im a fan of all metal. i went and saw slayer live when they did the unholy alliance tour and i was fucking speachless when they started playing that. with the fake blood raining down on kerry king as he played that solo was just amazing. Kerry King is one of the best heavy metal guitarist of all time and thats no lie. thats why i love that song so much.

and sorry but la grange sucks period. maybe its cause i hear that song like 4 times a night 3 days a week when my dad has band practice. could that be?

D4rk Ac3s
11-02-2007, 03:17 AM
Well, your dad's in a band, so I guess I see why you have a taste for ALL metal. I'm not a huge fan, but metal's OK now and then.

Thanks so much for your opinion

yeah me, and my bro play in bands together and we play all metal so i got taste from ac/cd - iron maiden - slayer

and my dad does the bar band thing, you know, goes on stage, plays 3 sets of songs, makes 250 a night. its a living

La Grange? Are you kidding me? ZZ Top is awesome. Billy Gibbons, Dusty Hill and Frank Beard are amazing.

Slayer rules, this song is NOT that hard, "Mosh 1" is the only hard part about it, I failed my first time on hard because I wasn't ready for how crazy it was, but I did 4* it on my 2nd try, and 5* not too long after that. I love hearing the groans when I pick this as my song on pro-face off. No one has beaten me on it yet.

slayer is definitely one of the greatest bands of all time, so 90% of you kids have no idea what you are talking about. and just because you suck at playing the song does not mean that there is not a beat to it. if you really think that slayer sucks then you need to get a clue about music and stop listening to fall out boy. the one thing they could of done without in this game are all the punk rock songs. they are so easy and are some of the crappiest songs i've ever heard in my life. such as anarchy in the u.k., that sonic youth song, story of my life, and that killers song. complete garbage.

Good Song= Yes
Hard Song= Yes

this was the only song that didnt take me more than a couple tries to 5* on expert, i found that using the first SP right away and then trying to get 4 SP phrases for the constant chord part towards the end got me a good enough score to eventually get the 5*. i also practiced some of the different parts individually mainly the ones where i used the SP or needed to get SP

The song itself does not suck. The song as a Guitar Hero song sucks. It just seems like the guitar (on expert) doesn't go along with the note chart (or viceversa). I had 5* all songs except "One" (but i beat it) but I can't get past that damn mosh part of the song. I even practiced it on slower speeds and back up to normal speed and I can't get the rhythm down. I might just try with a wired controller because the wireless seems to not register notes every once in a while. I played the song in its entirety (in practice mode) and the Mosh part is the only killer. If I could just get past it.... Seems like the "blue note of freedom" in Jordan from gh2.

Here's a tip on expert that you may not have noticed.

When mosh1 comes up, slide your hand to the second position. Roll your fingers up for the first four O,B,Y,R
B,Y,R,G and then I noticed.....they start to get spaced closer. (this is the key to beating mosh1 without start power) when you notice this spacing, speed up your rolls and your pretty much in the clear.

After discovering this, in practice I went from 38% notes hit to 85-86%. Hope this helps
(what happens if you don't notice that space is your timing is off and by the time you recover, you fail the song)

I'm not a Slayer fan in the least... and I listened to a lot of stuff back in that time period (older brother and sister with penchants for bands like Metallica, Maiden, etc) so I'm not just a douche that listens to Disturbed instead of... y'know... music.

That being said, I can't agree that this is the worst song in the series. It's hard to pick one, what with My Chemical Romance being in it.

I'll also say that the Dragonforce song might be the gayest fucking thing I've ever heard... and I'm not saying that because it's hard. It IS hard and it's really my bane while playing online (not that I'm so great at the game to begin with despite formal training in guitar and bass that DOESN'T HELP)... but Dragonforce is really super-gay. I don't know WHERE this band comes from -- I'll assume San Francisco or Greece or something -- but they gain the dubious distinction of being possibly the gayest fucking thing I've ever heard. Thanks for listening.

Guys, come on, this is a post about trying to help others get past a difficult song on a musical video game. Not a "may fovorite band is better than yours" pissing contest. Because unless you can provide a musical theory basis for why any band sucks, it's all just opinions. I love slayer, but this song is hard for me to get past. There are quiet a few songs on II and III that don't translate well into the game. This song is one of them. So just stop this, it's really annoying and pathetic to watch you guys tried to fight over who's a good band or not. It's not going to change the game as is.

Aksh0le
11-03-2007, 09:27 PM
on scorehero the people under 124,000 have only four stars. so you're close keep on trying, aim for 124,000 and up :)

11-03-2007, 10:07 PM
^ I think it's around 230, 000.

Mr Hey
11-03-2007, 10:34 PM
One of the last few left to 5* on hard :mad:
Good tip, Ill try it out when I play next. Slayer sucks and so does this song. Stop feuding over your favorite bands; theres enough threads on those already.

Angel of Death and Dead Skin Mask are my favorite Slayer tracks, but I wouldn't count on them including a track that has lyrics dealing with the holocaust :)

Anyway, my friend got like 230,000(somewhere close around there) points on Raining Blood and his multiplier was exactly 2.8. Needless to say, he barely passed it w/ 5 stars.

Guys I've been gone for a day, and this is what I get? Off topic..people please I'm not bashing the band it's just s really hard song to pass. I dunno if it's a cover or anything, but I think that it's horrible, and you can't bash me for my opinion.

Case CLOSED. If your gonna get off-topic, get the hell outta my thread.

Back on topic, please.

Argh, screw this song! I've been trying to 5* it for ages. I never get over 205k or so.

But tonight, I used this tip and started doing better...And lo and behold I got up to 225k...then failed.

I NEVER EVER fail the song's ending (insane part) but I did when I had the score I needed.

This song is out to keep me at 4*s.

You are talking about Raining Blood, right? I ask this b/c if you get 205, 000+ points on it you should definitely get 5 stars.

Edit: Nvm. I put in the wrong score. It's supposed to be 230, 000.
