    Download the following song:

    Stephen Colbert - Charlene (FREE!)

    Activate the Pinball Notes power-up and focus only on the pinball itself, and you'll easily get both Pinball Whiz and 5 gold stars. You basically don't even have to hit a single note.

    Katosepe321I admit, I was pretty much convinced this would be harder than it sounds but it really isn't... Got Pinball Whiz and Good as Gold from doing this and I'm pretty terrible at the game too. Definite Thumbs Up.

    Odog1234It does work, but i have no clue if anyone else is having a problem but dlc songs freeze on me right at the end and i cant get the achievement to unlock. I have yet to try it on a song already included with the game

    I found that the easiest and one of the quickest ways to get a gold star on a song is to choose the following song and following power ups.

    Song: "Song of the Century" by Green Day

    Power Ups:
    Jackpot - Once you have enough overdrive, simply use this and hit all the notes, and you'll get a nice bonus.
    Runaway Notes - Since they will only be on the vocal tracks, you won't have to worry about the tracks changing.
    Super Vocals - For extra vocal points.

    If you hit all notes without breaking your streak and use Jackpot during the "they're playing our song of the century" section of the song, I can guarantee that you'll gold star it.

    2 notes:

    First this song is only available if you exported it from Green Day: Rock Band.
    Second, Not using power ups will only get you 4 stars. I tried it twice, first time without any to see if it was possible by merely FCing the song.

    Hope this helps! :)


    EDIT: Song of the Century is now purchasable on Xbox LIVE.

    lightsup55There aren't any easier songs that come with the game, but this solution (assuming that one has exported Green Day: Rock Band) is THE BEST, EASIEST, and FIRST song I gold starred in this game. THANK YOU!!!

    It should also be noted that in order to use the Super Vocals Track Power-up, you need to "rank up" within the game by playing many songs to unlock it. When you have enough Blitz Cred, you'll unlock more Overdrive Power-ups, Note Power-ups, and Track Power-ups.

    ADaughenThis was the easiest song ever. :)

    I did:
    2x Overdrive
    Flame notes (gets you the flame achv)
    Super Vocals

    Gold starred ~50% through.

    ToothballUsing Pinball on single track songs like this also provides some rather high scores since it's impossible to miss.

    I used the song "We Like The Moon" to get my achievement. Because it only has tracks for the guitar and vocals. You'll have to buy this one from the Rock Band Network for 80msp. I turned on the "flame notes" power-up as it's the only one you'll need. All I did was play the notes on the guitar side and because the flame power-up is always on both sides when it's active, you'll keep hitting it over and over again. I never once switched to vocal side and still got this a little over halfway through the song. Just make sure you keep hitting the notes and it should be a breeze. This solution will also help with the "Pyromaniac" achievement if you need it as well.
