Song for the Week: The Perfect Drug - NIN

Divisions:
Drums, Medium
Guitar, Medium
Vocals, Medium

Drums, Hard
Guitar, Hard
Vocals, Hard

Drums, Expert
Guitar, Expert
Vocals, Expert

You may enter as many divisions as you wish, however, you can only win in one division per instrument. If you switch difficulties on a particular instrument mid-week, your last entry is the one that counts.

Score is what matters. The highest score in each division wins.

If you win on Medium or Hard you must move up at least one difficulty level the following week or sit the week out. If you win on Expert you must stay on Expert until you lose or sit out a week.

A screenshot of the score screen that appears after the song is completed must be posted. No other screens will be accepted as proof of score. Please have the following easily identifiable: song name, score, and instrument icon.

If you win all three instruments, No more than 1 may be Medium difficulty, in a given week (Hat Trick), you get to pick the song for the following week.

There will be no ties. First person to post a score in a division gets credit for it. Only post a score if it is higher than a score already posted.

Contest will run from Midnight (EST) Saturday to Midnight (EST) the following Saturday. The contest closes at Midnight, whether I actually post that the contest is closed or not. I will not accept any entries posted after that time.

The songs are chosen at random by computer from a list of songs that have not been played yet. I have no input into what song comes next on the list.

Special Rule for Hat Trick
In the case of multiple winning Hat Tricks posted in the same week, the following system will be used to determine the winner. Each difficulty is assigned a handicapping point value. Each Medium entry gets 1 points, each Hard entry gets 2 points, and each Expert entry gets 3 points. The person whose Hat Trick entry has the highest number of points is the winner.

Ties follow the same rules as individual entries. First one posted wins.

Special Note: Send me a PM with your song request when you think you have a Hat Trick. It prevents troubles in getting the next song up.

================================================== ===

Big thanks to soccerplaya for getting these started, and OldWIKI Tik for doing the banner graphics for both contests.

Feel free to discuss any issues you have with the contests with me.

I probably will too, since I don't have the DLC. We'll see. I get my 360 back this week and may have to DL a bunch of music when we are reunited ... BUT I go back to work this week too. Time will tell.

Nah I couldn't why don't you? Laying off of my drums to see if my yellow pad gets better (won't work but might as well try), besides I want to know how good you are at insanely technically songs before I try and beat it.

Ha...Ha my drums just took a great big shit on my entry for this week. The green pad is completely useless now it registers 1 out of about 100 hits. But do not get happy Mike lol... I am pre-ordering the very sexy ion drums and getting them mid September when they are shipped. Woo for birthday money!

I will be back...

Holy mother of god, your getting the ION kit, Arctik? Damn I wish I had that much money... the 90 bucks for the regular drums is a pretty big choice to make for all the games I'm buying this year. Unfortunate to hear of your crappy green pad... mine has started to drop the occasional hit as well, at this rate my kit is gonna fall apart right when I plan on selling it :(.

I'm seriously considering it myself. I just geek out every time I see the damn thing. I'll have to see how much money I have left after I order my laptop. Probably, not enough.

Only TWO entries so far? Fabulous scores, BTW, but still.

Seriously disappointing, especially since this song beat out Closer to the Heart. I like NIN as much as the next girl but ... wow. :confused:

Ill be posting my expert guitar and vocals soon. Theres no way im getting the ion kit. Ill just get the GH:WT kit and use it for RB.

I'll be entering scores later this week. I've been really busy up through today and haven't had much time to play Rock Band at all! :)

I'd go for expert guitar, but I can't gold star this song due to the fast strumming sections in the middle. -_-

When you guys get the ion kits, any change you could make some vids of them in use? Really intrigued myself, but wanna see how good they actually are before taking the plunge.

I bet there would be more entries if it was all disc songs, not dlc every other week, just a suggestion.

We just changed it to every other week. Geez. If you dont have a song, buy it or sit out i guess. Sorry, i hate playing onDisc songs unless i have to.

Once I get it I will try it out on at least The Who songs, RttH, Dead on Arrival, and some other awesomely hard songs and tell you how it works. I don't have any way of videoing them but if I find a way I will.

I am also getting GH:WT once I save up more money :p

yay NIN =D I almost missed this due to me forgetting to visit this forum lately for some reason...attempts in a bit.

I don't think I ever got my updated sig from my last two wins, though =(

5* of course...but if I got far away enough from the screen to see the 5th one, the guitar symbol would turn into a white circle lol

Be very careful with your photos. If I have to strain to recognize the icons, I'm going to pass it by. The rules are very specific that the icons must be easily recognizable. My theory is, if you can't be bothered to take a legible picture, I can't be bothered to strain to determine the instrument.

I don't need to see the whole screen. I have the game, I know what the screen looks like. I need the score, instrument icon, and difficulty. I also need enough of the title to see that it's the right song. I don't care about the stars, so you can cut some of those off if you need to. Get closer to the screen if you can't take a decent picture.

God Mike, that was an awesome score you pulled out. I kinda wished you would have let me go first now >.<. Nice wins, everybody, great scores all around, though the lack of half of the score slots being filled kind of worries me.
