> Killing in the Name

Image:Ratm.jpg Killing in the Name was written and recorded by Rage Against The Machine. The song appears on their self-titled debut album released in 1992.



While not terribly difficult, it can be a bit of a challenge to Full Combo There are streaks of 12 orange notes within 2 beats at the end of both Chorus 1b and Chorus 2b. Then, there's the killswitch solo. Part a is made up of sets of 3 single notes of the same fret. Going O to B to O to Y to B to Y to B to R to Y to R to Y to G. Part b is mostly slow trills between Y and B, and R and Y. Then there's the Noise Build. If anything will keep you from a Full Combo, it's this part. These are 24th notes played between 82 and 87 BPM, and with chord changes every 3 to 4 beats. These go from GR to GY to GB to RY to RB to RO to YB to YO. Otherwise, this is not too hard.

A Cover Version of a song is a song that is recorded by a different artist than the original.

Cover versions are mostly used in Guitar Hero because of an artist not allowing the use of the original Master Track or otherwise not having the master track available. Cover versions are shown by the song as made famous by such as Heart-Shaped Box as made famous by Nirvana.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock has significantly fewer of cover versions, since Neversoft was able to get more bands to sign up, while the series is now more famous. It should be noted that every bonus song has been a master track except for "She Bangs the Drums" in Guitar Hero III.

Every Guitar Hero game since Guitar Hero: World Tour does not contain any covers.
