The Lyrics

The fact that this hasn't been done is astonishing. Only major Guitar Hero nerds will appreciate every reference here...
Ever since two thousand and five,
I've played Guitar Hero.
From the first game down to World Tour,
I must have played them all.
But I ain't seen nothing like him
As he plays All Nightmare Long
That damn GuitarHeroPhenom
Sure plays some fake guitar!

He stands there like a statue,
But he moves like a machine.
Hitting all the solos,
The tapping is obscene.
He plays by memorization,
Even if the song might blow,
That damn iamchris4life
Sure plays Guitar Hero!

He's a Guitar Hero
There has to be a twist
And Herman Li
Really has got to be pissed.

How do you think he does it?
(I don't know!)
How'd they get so good?

He plays the song in practice,
Can't worry about their scores.
No star power to distract him,
No crowds gathered in hordes.
Always getting FC's,
The other players blow
That goddamn jameslikecoulter
Sure plays Guitar Hero!

I thought I was
The Charlie Daniels king
But I just gave my
Georgian crown to him.

Even on my favorite setlist
He can beat my best
His subscribers watch his stream
And he just does the rest.
He's got crazy tapping fingers
As he slams on that strum bar
All those damn Guitar Heroes
Sure play some fake guitar!

You got the song title and artist mixed up. It should be Pinball Wizard by The Who.

I've only tried Guitar Hero a few times and can appreciate this one - 555. My try on Guitar Hero was just like Stan Marsh's dad on South Park - I could play the real song on guitar but at Guitar Hero - I Sucked!
