Last night I was happy to make it to Lou on Medium on "Guitar Hero III", the latest video game to earn more than $100 million in sales in its first week. But I just got the thing last week, so I was just satisfied not to get booed off the stage... again.

After feeling cocky about making a respectable run through Metallica's epic "One" and long time favorite Maiden's "The Number of the Beast", I took a stab at Slayer's "Reign in Blood" and was humbled.

My attention was piqued, however, when I saw some videos today on of dudes beating Guitar Hero III's soul-crushing beast of a finale - DragonForce's "Through The Flames and Fire".

Above we see six guys from back east cheating and then celebrating their hollow victory - although something could be said for teamwork. And after the jump you will see one dude, on Expert Mode, alone, wowing his dorm room full of new disciples.
