The Perfect Drug

Get a 200 note streak on "The Perfect Drug".   

This must be done on Drums and can be done on any difficulty. It is a challenging song but there is a long outro that is the same pattern repeated for quite some time. Play on a difficulty you are comfortable on and you should be able to manage this in the outro on any difficulty if you are struggling. This song also counts toward Dave Grohl Band.

I just 100%'d expert bass, over 700 notes. Didn't get the cheve. This must be for a specific instrument (or perhaps pro-mode). Its probably a goal. Annoyed that I didn't get it though.

Guitar did not count either. I believe it has to be done on drums.

The DLC achievement guide says its best on medium, has anyone tried it on easy? I'm rubbish on drums, find it really hard to keep a consistent beat above easy (the damn kick pedal always throws me off lol)but most stuff I can play pretty well on easy.

to answer your guys' questions has to be on drums. I looked it up in the goals menu and it is under downloaded song goals on drums

Oh ffs! Its not bs at all!! You'd pay for the dlc to get dlc achievements from any other game! Fallout, Red Dead Redmption, Call Of Duty.... Fair enough, some games only have map packs but you still can't get the dlc achievements without them! It's no difference here.

That's the Nine Inch Nails logo, the artist of the song this achievement is for :)

True enough, but the N is actuall backwards of what it's supposed to be.
Meaning it actually looks like NIN in the picture of the achievement.

You can definitely do this on Easy drums. WAY MORE than enough notes.

Anybody else get 100% on Expert Drums?

Yeah, that's weird, the second "N" isn't backwards, therefore it's backwards. Confusing, no?

Anyway, I got this on expert drums easily...the beginning is a pretty simple beat with a lot of notes.

Monday, January 17, 2011 @ 11:42:45 AM

Lol i was sure when i looked at it after the original comment that the N was actually back to front, the way it's supposed to be in their logo, must have been going crazy or something :P . Oh and thanks for the answer about being able to do it on easy drums! I may just purchase this now when i move onto playing the drums in-game.

Play on Expert with no fail on if you can't beat it, the ending is really slow and simple with 250+ notes to hit.

#23 If you read the rest of these here posts, you'd see it's unlocked when you play drums. This if confirmed if you go into career goals and look at Drums>Downloaded Songs

#18, expert drums on Charlene is pretty easy, that's how I got it.

I would have liked it if it had said that it was drums only... rawr. Also, achievements that are tied to DLC, without getting the DLC? I own a ton of RB DLC, but still kind of bugs me..

I found this song really easy on expert pro drums. I don't understand why everyone has such a hard time with it
