The Lyrics

The passion and pain of the Guitar Hero video game.....



Standing there in pain, with my ax slung low
Couldn't feel my fingers, I couldn't hold the show
Heard the boos of the crowd, they were hittin' me mean
Kept on hearing the squall, the missed notes like a scream
Should be fun: guitar, but a sad display
I saw stars in my eyes, found out that I can't play
On my Wii mock six string, but I'm stayin' hardcore
Trying hard now to fret it, and I'll riff some more
With Wii guitar, think I'm in a band, wasn't too long, I numbed my hand
Just one guitar, I'm laid down low
Was a one day ticket, to the doctor to show
My joints started lockin', can't ever make 'em stop
Gotta beat this lockin', next day finger made a real loud pop

And I'm a Guitar Zero, (it's hard to deny) not a Guitar Hero
Wii no fun guitar, (Guitar Zero) (harming this guy)
Guitar Zero, (hard rock awry) I took a dive tonight

In the song that I can't name, with its heavy loud chords
Got so pissed had a meltdown, let my mad rage soar
Like the dude from The Who, a craze in my brain
And that Wii guitar, made me so deranged
And then I just started slammin', I did the stomp
Busted up that ax then, that toy has made my play a flop

'Cause I'm a Guitar Zero (it's hard but I try)
Not a Guitar Hero (I can't make it cry)
Yeah, Guitar Zero (can't kiss the sky)
Ain't no fun: guitar (blurred both my eyes)
I'll stay alive, I'll survive tonight

I'm not a sweet star rockin', just a flop
Got no sleep 'cause rockin', that toy just kept me stayin' up

That's me, a Guitar Zero (got hard so I cried)
Not a Guitar Hero (my carpals got fried)
No fun guitar (Guitar Zero) it's hard on my eyes
A bust, a Guitar Zero (aah aah aaah)
Guitar (stars) Zero (hard, hard) Guitar Zero (shards, shards)
I got parts of it right, drums..I...should...try...?


.
I'm really not too bad for a rookie, though it can definitely be a challenge. But it's a lot of fun and highly addictive.

I think that is a song about me, Blackjack, as it desribes my tries at the game. I'm like Stan's dad in South Park - can't play the game but can play the real thing. 555 - good stuff.

Shouldn't be too hard on yourself, Blackjack--this one Wii'ly struck a chord with me!

If they ever invent a guitar that plays like the vid game, there will be mass unemployment in the music industry! Fortunately, not even Wii will ever market Trombone Hero...lol! Well done. ;)

Loved it! 5s

I can't play Guitar Hero or RockBand worth a darn, but I am pretty good (but not great) with the acoustic and electric varieties of actual guitars. FTR, I own a Yamaha acoustic guitar, a Gibson Les Paul electric that has been through h*ll and back, and a little Washburn amplifier that I picked up at Goodwill for $15, new in box. I am a back-up guitar player and part-time sound-effects specialist with a friend's garage band, as well. This parody is a great take on the crap that Guitar Hero is in comparison with the real McCoy, and 5s to you.

Timmy: Thanks for v/c, I'd rather be able to play the real thing but never picked it up.
Wii'ly? I like the chords too, thanks.
OMR: Thanks, and you never know, Big Band Hero could be the next hot game. ;-)
Jack: Thanks, glad ya liked it.
Chance: Thanks....huh? The skins game is over at the Tiger Woods parody. ;-)
Andria: As I said to Timmy, I'd much rather play the real thing and I admire those who can. But this will have to do for now, thanks for v/c. :-)

Hahaha! I can relate; I've rarely seen my teenage stepson laugh as hard as he did when his dad and I were trying to play his Guitar Hero game with him. How embarrassing! ;)

I do pretty good on Expert, but I still can't do super-fast hammer-on/pull-off sections. Man, I hate those!!
