    This is achieveable on hard, and it is a lot easier than doing it on expert. Make sure you can full combo the first half of the song (including the mini solo) and try to keep a 4x multiplier for as long as you can during the solo. Practice the solo in practice for a while to a point until you can nearly fc it (bar a couple of mistakes). Then at the end during the gap activate star power. Assuming you then fc the last section with star power still active when the song concludes, you will get the achievement.

    Here's how I achieved this. First, make sure you can beat this song on expert using star power with at least 250,000k points. Then, try and do it without star power. At the end, after the few second break, you can use starpower. As long as you finish the song while star power is still going, you can still achieve this. Got it on my first try without star power.

    Bentom08I think it's easier to do on hard. I managed to FC the song apart from 2 notes with no star power and got 210,000. On expert I can't even get past the big solo without star power, so easier on hard IMO

    geegers x3Agreed @Bentom08. Also, try to get a 500+ note streak on Hard difficulty before you hit the final solo. This was a lot easier for me than trying to beat the song on expert.

    You CAN attain this achv on Hard difficulty with room to spare. *MAKE SURE and double check you have all cheats turned OFF or this won't unlock!* What worked for me was to 100% thru the first solo and throughout the repeat of the verse making a 500+ note streak. I think that allowed me room to miss 3-5 notes during the final solo, but get your multiplier back up to 4x and keep it there until the end of the song as soon as possible. Then deploy star power during the silent interlude right before the final refrain, making sure star power is still active when the You Rock screen appears and this achv is yours. I got this achv on Hard with a score of 204k! ps thx credit goes to xXxNat3 DoggxXx =D
