There are 3 songs you must get 3 stars on to get this achievement:

* Basket Case
* When I Come Around
* Welcome to Paradise

Expert vocals can be pretty tricky if you don't sing on Rock Band much. You kind of have to sing a bit like a robot and keep a steady pitch that matches the pitch lines in game, instead of trying to impersonate Billie Joe. Luckily, only 3 stars are required for each of these songs, and just getting through one of these songs pretty much secures a 3 star rating. It is possible to get less than 3 stars, but you'd have to be really terrible and you'd most likely fail out before you got to the end of the song.

Usually singing songs on Expert is easier if you're familiar with the songs outside of the game, so you have a basic idea of how you should sing it. Fortunately, the 3 songs for this achievement are 3 of Green Day's biggest hits. If you've listened to an alternative rock radio station in the last 15 years, you've heard these songs.

Try your best to nail the Overdrive phrases (the ones where the pitch line is glowing yellow), and deploy it as soon as you can. The boost to your score and crowd meter should help a lot if you are really terrible at the vocals.

This can only be earned during solo play in Career or Quickplay.
