Who Needs the Power

200k on Cult of Personality without Star Power   

You must play this on Hard or Expert to get enough points for this achievement. You can actually use Star Power late in the song. As long as you still have it on when the song ends, it will not count as being used, and you will still get the achievement.

This can be done on hard, but you can't use any starpower whatsoever until the end of the song. You have to time it right so that you'll have enough time in starpower to top off your 200k points before the end of the song, but the song absolutely must end before starpower runs out.

@#2 or you could do it legit and not need the SP to boost you over 200k?

My controller is absolute garbage. It activates Star Power when ever the hell it feels like. Even a slight bump activates star power. But when I actually need to use it to get through a song? Nope, i'll swing that neck so hard and nothing happens.

I didn't need SP on Hard, but if you do, save it all until the last section ( right after the "ask not..." talking part). It should still be on as the song ends.
