Visions.

yeah it is a stupid song on drums. if you can call it a song. it's just noise. like the vocalist has gone to the toilet with the mic in hi pocket, the guitarist is blind and drunk, with overdrive on, and the drummer is thinking. i hate it, the only song i can't do on expert. seriously i find painkiller easier than this piece of crap

This is pretty much the only song that gives me problems also. I can pass it, but it isn't very pretty.
I thought this was going to be the song that messed up my quest for the Bladder of Steel, but thank god I barely pulled through.

Like the vocalist has gone to the toilet with the mic in HER pocket. Yup, that's a chick.

Whenever I'm forced to play it, I sing it like opera. I'm not cheating and putting the mic next to the speakers but I'm also not gonna sing that crap. Might as well make it funny for the people listening, see if I can make them mess up.

SHE sings THIS!!??

That's just wrong... I'd laugh if that's how she actually talks all the time

"Hey, I noticed you across the bar and thought I'd say hi. What's your name?"

"Blerghwooorgherrrgghsaaaaaghhhrraaaawwww"

"Um... Well, that's... Very nice... I'm gonna go this way, catch you around..." *Runs* "*Pants* Phew, that was scary... Is she a wolf!?"

No worries, that's exactly what people (or at least regulars here) prefer. No need to make a 30th Visions topic

That's just wrong. This is probably the worst song in the entire game, right next to Shoulder to the Plow. It's not music, it's just noise. And like most other people, this song gave me the most trouble...much more than Painkiller or Panic Attack, or Battery, or any of the "harder" songs.

At least some of the harder songs are good to listen to. Green Grass and High Tides wasn't a bad song after you passed it the first time. Visions is just...loud noises.

Edit: Their MySpace says they sound like "A retard shitting himself while bench pressing 500 lbs during an earthquake; a bear fighting a train." Pretty accurate, I'd say.

Normal sized bear. It's the train that's tiny.

Personal opinion. It doesn't make it a fact. I, for one, agree with you. Others will most likely not.

And just for the record, I tried Vocals on Visions yesterday and got 5G* first try. 99% though since I did something wrong on like the first or second phrase.

I hate Rebel Girl as much as the next person but at least it's MUSICAL. Like, there is some semblance of a melody, some semblance of a steady drum beat, some semblance of a guitar & bass line that sounds more than random notes.

Visions has none of those. It's just junk.
The drum part sounds like babies on speed hitting wood blocks together.

The scary thing is... I've seen worse live. I go to alot of shows and the Screamo is getting worse and worse. I like it if it's done sporadically (and well) but this is neither.

Just because you help work on the game shouldn't mean you can enter a song. What's next? Lead programmers kids singing Mary had a little lamb?

(I really tried to find an audio clip of a horrible local band from a few years ago that was made up of 2 11 yr old girls, to no avail. Instead, enjoy this. She's better than listening to Visions....)
