Songs That Should Be On Guitar Hero

These songs have yet to grace Guitar Hero setlists, and why is beyond me when there are MCR and AFI songs on them and not these truly incredible songs with ACTUAL "guitar heroes" on them.
1Frank Zappa
Black Napkins

Anyone that's heard Frank Zappa has probably thought the same thing. What in the hell kind of drugs is this guy on. But he's possibly the best modern composer and a genius musically, not to mention an outstanding guitarist. The solo runs in this song have an incredible amount of style and difficulty and that's why it tops the list.
2Eric Clapton

C'mon now... you're going to have a song about being a guitar hero without this? I mean, really...
Cemetary Gates

C'mon, theres few more legendary guitarists than Dimebag Darrell and this song is a Pantera classic. ...please?
4Liquid Tension Experiment
Paradigm Shift

Albeit there may be a better song for John Petrucci madness, this is one that just strikes me as something that I'd love to watch the 14-year-old guitar hero "elites" try to shred on. Petrucci is undoubtably my favorite guitarist at the moment and has been for some time. His chops and style just make him an inspiring guitarist. That and the fact that his biceps are fuckin' huge. o_O
5Led Zeppelin
Stairway to Heaven

While there's a 99% chance that this'll never happen, I'd be completely kidding myself if I didn't include it. While I'm not a super fanboy over LZ, this song has stood the test of time and I think everyone pretty much agrees, love it or hate it, this song is definitely a guitar classic.
Oye Como Va

With the coming of gh3, you have no idea how happy I was to see this guy on there. There is no one that comes close in my mind that has the feeling and passion of making music than Santana. this is another classic, while not as well known as black magic woman, it's just as good if not better.
7Jason Becker

This song is simply breathtaking whether you're a fan of shred or not. It's beautifully written and if you're a guitarist that tries to learn how to play this, it also makes you want to kill yourself until you do. And I mean, just admit it... wouldn't you like to see the faces on those top 10 guitar hero players when THIS song's chart comes up?
8Yngwie Malmsteen
Black Star

Basically for the same reason as #7, nothing says "go outside" like failing at 3% into a song.

This is probably my favorite Metallica instrumental, and while there are better songs, there's great solos and great riffs in this song that are basically the signature of Kirk Hammett's playing style. While vastly over-rated and having legions of worshippers, Kirk really does have a great playing style that most Metallica listeners have grown to love. And there's a nifty little bass solo, how many times has THAT happened in guitar hero?

While this song is more of a keyboardist's wetdream than a guitarist, I would just love to be able to play this with friends. It's an awesome song.
