Guitar Hero Live players love them some Tenacious D

FreeStyle Games has come out with a list of the most-played songs in Guitar Hero Live over the holidays and I can't be the only one who finds lists like this somewhat entertaining.

  1. "Tribute" - Tenacious D
  2. "American Idiot" - Green Day
  3. "Sing" - Ed Sheeran
  4. "The Lazy Song" - Bruno Mars
  5. "All the Small Things" - Blink-182

Globally, the top songs across all of Guitar Hero TV were:

  1. "I Gotsta Get Paid" - ZZ Top
  2. "Best Day of My Life" - American Authors
  3. "Tribute" - Tenacious D
  4. "Epic" - Faith No More
  5. "Rollin' and Tumblin'" - The Gaslight Anthem
  6. "Jekyll and Hyde" - Five Finger Death Punch
  7. "Diamond Eyes" - Deftones
  8. "Break the Cycle" - Motionless in White
  9. "Tears Don't Fall" - Bullet for my Valentine
  10. "Broken Generation" - Of Mice & Men
  11. "More Than A Feeling" - Boston
  12. "Stacy's Mom" - Fountains of Wayne
  13. "Cult of Personality" - Living Colour
  14. "Eyes of a Stranger" - Queensrÿche
  15. "Buddy Holly" - Weezer
  16. "Cowboys from Hell" - Pantera
  17. "The Lazy Song" - Bruno Mars
  18. "Down with the Sickness" - Disturbed
  19. "Time To Pretend" - MGMT
  20. "Always with Me, Always with You" - Joe Satriani

A few random thoughts: first, I like how ZZ Top has more than one song about getting paid (there is also 1972's "Just Got Paid"). Second, it warms my heart to know people are still discovering and loving "Cult of Personality." What a great track! Lastly, I'm fairly sure Kyle does not own Guitar Hero Live, but I'm holding him personally accountable for "Stacy's Mom" making the cut.
