Walkthrough[edit | edit source]
This is a difficult song across all instruments besides vocals, especially the opening drum part (the "motorcycle riff" as some call it). The guitar solo is fairly long, as is the song in general at just under five minutes. As for the outro on guitar, you should use the slider bar to tap out the crazy 3 note chords going fast.
Guitar[edit | edit source]
This song is very hard on Guitar, probably one of the hardest in the Guitar Hero series. Watch out for the intro, the long solo, and the ending. All three of those parts are hard. Also, the song periodically features slider notes, so be mindful of them. Other parts of the song like the "Detention Riffs" are usually combo breaker. So, beware.
Bass[edit | edit source]
On Bass, this song is hard. It's on the last tier on Bass Career and is one of the easier songs on that tier. The hardest parts are the ending (the "OH MY GOD" part) and the solo for some. Use star power on these hard parts and you'll survive.
Drums[edit | edit source]
This song is infamous for its "motorcycle riff" at the beginning. Most people fail at this part, so watch out. The song as a whole is very difficult, and is nearly impossible to 5 star of complete on Expert. If you're playing on Beginner or Easy, you will be fine, as it's not hard at all. Medium is much more difficult, though it's easy to complete for an Expert drum player. Hard is much more difficult than Medium, and is harder for an Expert drum player.
Singing[edit | edit source]
If you can sing tenor, baritone, or can do a David Lee Roth impression, you'll be fine. The hardest parts are the pre-choruses because they are sung on a weird note. The easiest parts are the choruses, so use your star power during those parts. Other than that, you should have no trouble at all on it.
