One is a track by Metallica in Guitar Hero III. It comes from the band's fourth album, ...And Justice For All, released in 1988, in which it is the fourth track.



"One" is one of the songs in the last level, "Battle For Your Soul". It is generally considered one of the hardest songs in the game to full combo, second only to "Through The Fire And Flames" in most minds. In "Fast Solo A", the song goes up to 22 nps (notes per second) on triplets. This has been just recently full comboed by JPrez44 of ScoreHero - the section is tappable, but one stray yellow note in the middle of the section cannot be hammered on, thus requiring a proper strum. It's sheer speed means that elbow strumming is possible,but highly unlikely. One other thing about One is that the song's optimal path combined with an FC outside of Solo A almost always rounds out to a little less then 600,000, so getting to 600 is a special accomplishment. To do so, you must FC up to the solo and do at least very well at the rest, which isn't as frantic but still no picnic.

The highest recorded score on One is 655,903, by ScoreHero member JPrez44, on the Xbox 360. This score was submitted on August 24, 2008.

Along with "Cult of Personality", it is one of the only songs to include an uncut opening with no guitar parts - though songs like "Who Was in My Room Last Night?", "Madhouse", "Carry On Wayward Son" and "Holy Diver" do have such an introduction style as well, their openings are cut short. This is probably because these are cover tracks while "One" and "Cult of Personality" are masters.

Full Combo

The song has been FC'd twice; they came within 4 hours of one another. On September 9, 2008, UndeadFil13QC became the first to FC the song, with JPrez44 also doing so just over three hours later. The picture proofs can be found here: [[1]].

With these FCs, every song in the game (excluding downloadable content) has now been FC'd.

A Master Track is the original recording of a song by an artist. All songs on CD, record, cassette, or any other form of media are based on this recording.

This is necessary for the Guitar Hero series because on a master track all instruments are separate tracks, which is required so the guitar sounds can be separate from the rest of the music.

In Guitar Hero II, a master track is shown by Performed by such as Stop as Performed by Jane's Addiction. In Guitar Hero III, a master track is indicated as "by".
