Hardest song to 5 star

OK, so many people have been complaining not being able 5 star like 1 or 2 songs left in the game in order to get the "5 star on expert" achievement.

I want to know what you guys think the hardest song in the game is.

imo, the hardest song is caught in a mosh; incredibly awkward on guitar, very hard on bass, ridiculous on drums. (vocals is still kind of easy though).

As a guitarist/bassist, I'd say Caught in a Mosh or Llama. I don't think I've ever played them on Expert without rage-quitting.

Caught In A Mosh definetly for me. I can five star Beast and the Harlot on every playthrough and Llama i usally come very close to five starring. If there was a poll for "Most annoying guitar chart" I would vote for Antibodies.

For guitar it was either Llama or Antibodies. Both took me 3 tries :P
They both have incredibly awkward strumming patterns.

Lucky for me i've been following GH and RB since Guitar Hero 1, and Guitar Hero: Rocks the 80s was my favorite one so i'm very used to Caught in a Mosh. 5 star it every time :P

I voted for Beast and the Harlot. Definitely not the hardest song in the game, but a song that doesn't have an easy instrument. Llama is simple on vocal harmonies, I gold starred it first try. Caught in a Mosh is the same way (though I didn't gold star it). Antibodies is the most messed up one, though. It is only two dots on Guitar, but I can barely get 4 stars (just can't maintain a multiplier), and the only song I have failed on Bass (wtf is up with the 2 minute HOPO string at the end?). There are a bunch of hard 5 stars if you are only a strummer in this game.

The only ones i had trouble with at all are Jerry Was A Race Car Driver on bass and Llama on drums, neither took very long though. Pretty easy game overall.

Llama, because Caught in a Mosh and Beast and the Harlot are easy on vocals.

For me on guitar, its Antibodies. The alt-strumming is awkward (and i suck at alt-strumming) so I barely 4 star it. At least with Llama, I nail the solo which is enough for 5 stars and for Caught In a mosh, I can downstrum for majority of the song making it pretty easy

Lol for me on Guitar was "Saturday's Alright for Fighting." Took me about an hour to learn the damned chorus.

I could easily 5 star every song besides this one. I think Llama took me 2 tries and I got Caught in a Mosh on my first.

When I was going for the five star on expert achievement the hardest song was Hey Man Nice Shot. Everything else was easy to five star on at least one instrument.

Llama was a sightread four-star on guitar, so I guess that's my choice for that one. Bass I did all on sightread but I'd go with Roundabout because the main pattern is fairly hard (though the length of the song makes the five-star doable). I can't even pass Llama on drums so that wins easily, and I still have four-stars on Antibodies and Roundabout normal keys (I'll say Roundabout).

And from what I've seen, Roundabout on pro keys is the hardest chart in any rhythm game so far Maybe it's just because it's a new instrument, but I think it's total hell. Perhaps there's a pro guitar chart that's even harder, though?

Yea, Rick Wakeman is such an amazing keyboardist.

I don't know about Pro Guitar, but for Pro Bass I suspect that Jerry Was A Race Car Driver is gonna be pretty damn hard...a lot of Les Claypool bass lines are haha

I 5 starred all the songs on Expert Vocals. The hardest one I found to be was Roundabout by Yes. Doing that on Vocal Harmonies was annoying and soooooo damn long!

You might be surprised at how...well, I certainly wouldn't call it tame, but the repetition does make it easier haha. Here's a link to the chart: click

Are you a fan of his solo stuff? If "One Better" becomes DLC with the pro additions, that's the time we should worry (and simultaneously have the most fun ever!) haha. Love that chugging riff near the end, let the keyboard play the saxophones and the drums do the marimba and we've got ourselves a winning combination

I have only listened to what he's done as a part of Primus, so I'll have to check out his solo stuff.

I like what I heard with that song...excellent

Antibodies. It was the last song I got 5* on. The bass riff isn't that hard, but it requires almost perfect concentration throughout for 5*, and pretty much mandates No Fail on the finale regardless.

Beast and the Harlot isn't too tough on Guitar, Caught in a Mosh is an absolute joke on vocals (and I have difficulties getting consistent 5* on Medium!), and Llama is very doable on bass.

Some people mostly find it a hard song on guitar because it has an unusual chart that not to many are used to. Sometimes its just hard to get a decent note streak.

I retract my first post; Antibodies is officially the hardest song for me to five star. I've played guitar, bass, drums, and vocals, and got around 4.90 to 4.95 stars on Expert every single time.

If we're talking Guitar, LLama can blow me.
If it's Bass, then Jerry Was a Race Car Driver.
Drums probably LLama as well.
Keys is Roundabout.
Vocals would be...Misery Business? I don't know about that one.

Good Vibrations for vocals. that song (plus one other, but i had fcd it with a bad path) is the only one i didn't gold star on my sightread. it is literally one of the hardest things i have ever seen in rock band history (x1000 than fat kid, somebody to love, doin that rag, tangled up in blue, etc). when i saw it ranked as the hardest song in the game, i thought it was a harmonix tier ranking fail; i was dead wrong.

then again, it is really easy on any other instrument, so it doesn't even come close to this list when trying to 5* it on expert.

Llama, only managed to ever 5* it in band quickplay, it's keeping me away from my 50G.

This is guitar...any other instrument it's easy on?

You shouldn't have any trouble with bass, it's just moderate fretting (surprised you can't get guitar really, your scores typically beat mine ).

Yeah, just did it on bass first try

If you want some band play soon then I'm game for that, I'll need to do bass though :P (7 more for my chievo!)

I don't know the song but I held two mics up and went la la la during the chorus and five starred it on the first try.
