Song InformationEdit

I Love Rock & Roll is a song in Guitar Hero and Guitar Hero: Smash Hits. It is known for being the first song in the first tier in the first Guitar Hero, and its inclusion into Smash Hits is a warm tribute to its popularity as the very first song in the franchise.


I Love Rock & Roll is considered on the easiest songs in the entire franchise, competing with Slow Ride and They Say.

As this is the first song in the game, You should not have any problems with it at all. If you are a new player, this might take 1 or 2 tries. But other then that, it is a very easy song to pass, and FC. The Smash Hits is even easier, as the better Hammer Ons and Pull Offs mechanics make the solo easier than it was in Guitar Hero.
