  • "Guitar Hero" (the "single mix" version) was Number One on the Mad Music Dementia Top 20 Podcast (hosted by DJ Particle) on April 18th, 2008, and again two weeks later on May 2nd. It had a 15 place dip in the week between, however, as on the April 25th show it was number 16. (Insane Ian)
  • There are actually TWO versions of this song that have been played on The Mad Music Show. The "rough mix" (which features the scratch vocal track and is missing backing vocals) was played on show 02-15-08 #MMDT20 08-06, and the "single mix" (featuring newly recorded vocals, backing vocals, and a general sense of "ballsiness") was played on show 03-29-08 #MMCZ 08-13, and every appearance of the song since then has been the "Single Mix", despite this listing stating otherwise. This second version is indicative of the version that will appear on Insane Ian's forthcoming album "n3rds0ngs". (Insane Ian)
  • Song Lyrics:
    Standing in Gamestop, with his head hung low
    Came for the tourney, wanted to play Halo
    But he saw something new, on the video screen
    It was a rhythm game, one he’d never seen

    He saw a toy guitar, just blew him away
    He saw the score rise, and the very next day
    Bought a beat up used game and a controller
    Didn’t know how to play it, but he knew for sure

    That toy guitar, felt good in his hands
    Didn’t take long, to understand
    Just one guitar, to play those chords
    Had to follow the colors, on the little fret board

    So he started clickin’
    Ain’t never gonna stop
    Gotta keep on clickin’
    Somehow he made that plastic rock

    And was a guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    He’s a guitar hero
    He took one guitar, guitar hero (watch his score rise)
    Guitar Hero, on Xbox Live tonight

    After playin’ all night, about a quarter ‘til four
    Flipped and hit star power, and he doubled his score
    Like a man possessed, he set to his course
    He played “Jordan”, then took on Dragonforce

    Now he needs to keep clickin’
    Don’t stop to take a ****
    Gotta keep on clickin’
    That boy has got bad arth-ri-tis!

    But he’s a guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    He’s a guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    Yeah, guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    With that one guitar he’s got five
    Five stars tonight

    Yeah, he’s gotta keep rockin
    Until his fingers hurt
    Gotta keep on rockin
    One day he’ll beat it on Expert

    And be a guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    He’s a guitar hero (just watch his score rise)
    It took one guitar, put stars in his eyes
    Now he’s just a guitar hero, aah aah aah
    Guitar hero, Guitar hero, he’s got stars in his eyes
    Watch His Score Rise
