Paranoid is a song in written and recorded by Black Sabbath for their second album Paranoid (1970). The song reached #62 on the Us Singles Chart and #4 on the UK Singles Chart. It is best-known for its simple riff and iconic solo. In a Guitar World interview, Tommy Iommi said the song was originally "written as a joke", but turned out to be one of their most popular songs and successful songs next to Iron Man. It appears in Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock and in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock.
On Hard and Expert, this song can be FC'd easily due to the fact that it is very repetitive. All you need to be able to do is know your basic chords. The solo is a particularly easy solo, even on the upper difficulties, due to its slow pace.

Finished with my woman 'cause she
Couldn't help me with my mind
People think I'm insane because
I am frowning all the time
All day long I think of things but
Nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind if I don't
Find something to pacify
Can you help me
Occupy my brain?
Let me see you
Come on, hey!
I need someone to show me the
Things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true
Happiness I must be blind
I love you guys
Everybody clap your hands
Now let me hear you, hey!
Make a joke and I will sigh and
You will laugh and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel and
Love to me is so unreal
And so as you hear these words telling
You now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life I
Wish I could but it's too late

- Like Ace of Spades and Sharp Dressed Man, Paranoid is one of the few songs in the series to appear in more than one game but never use the original version. Guitar Hero 3 and Guitar Hero Arcade had a cover version and Warriors of Rock had a live cover with Metallica featuring Ozzy Osbourne.
