    This achievement is HARD! It's a challenge for even the best drummers out there! The ratio does not lie for this one.

    "Brain Stew / Jaded" is one of the toughest songs on drums.

    Some people have endorsed to "hands" method, as mentioned above (with no fail-mode on). Well that method was above, but now since my solution is the highest :D and there's nothing above now, then I'll clarify:
    With the hands method, you take the foot pedal in your lap with no fail mode on and don't worry about the individual drum notes; just worry about the orange bars. Practice a couple of times to get the rhythm down. I could never figure it out though. Seems like hitting the drums helped me through, but some are able to actually do it.
    Sadly, I struggled with this method. It's definitely out there if you wanna try it though. Also this achievement works with hyperspeed as well if you are more comfortable with it.

    You can also do it similar to the hand method with your foot, in case you're more comfortable with your foot.

    I know you probably don't wanna hear this, & I don't wanna brag, but I'm a really good drummer and I struggled with this achievement. I spent many hours practicing this song since I couldn't do the hand or foot method, so I eventally FC'd (full comboed) the song on drums. & boy was I excited to have this achievement behind me!

    You MUST hit ALL orange bars (foot pedals). If you accidentally let 1 slip by, then you must restart the song as it voids the achievement.

    The first 3 minutes ("Brain Stew") is a cakewalk. Slow and easy beat. Then it picks up with "Jaded". Which honestly wouldn't be quite as bad if it didn't change up the beat 2 or 3 times in its duration. So make sure to keep an eye out for the changes!

    A HUGE pointer: Save up your overdrive & DO NOT use it during the "Jaded" section. It will cover the "tricky" foot pedal beats, making this a lot easier if you get the beat down (a one-two one-two beat). Then the ending is quite a change-up, not hard, but just be prepared for the 5 or 6 bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum beat. It's not too fast, but just get ready so you don't miss one at the very end of the song.

    The worst part of this achievement is that most people miss the foot pedal at the end of "Jaded," which sucks because you have to restart the song & sit through the 3-minute long "Brain Stew" section. Don't get me wrong I LOVE "Brain Stew," it's one of my favorite songs by Green Day, but when you're ready to get this achievement, it gets pretty annoying to sit through 3 minutes of easiness so you MIGHT have a chance at "Jaded."

    Be patient and don't give up. It took me many hours to accomplish, but it felt amazing once I got it!

    Edit: I've attatched a video just for people to see the chart if they're curious. My run looked a lot like this except for the fact that I let the overdrive cover up a lot of the trick beat at the end of the song!

    3:20-end is the HARD part!

    With a bit of practice this achievement isn't hard at all.

    Head over to quick play and play Drums Expert with No-Fail turned on. When the Song begins play like you normally would until you get Overdrive. At the next free moment pause the game and put the kick pedal in your lap and use your hands* for the song. With the drum fills removing the hard parts this shouldn't be hard to get the hang of.

    I will post the video once I get it uploaded.

    *I recommend using a Rock Band 2 kick pedal since its a nice pedal and isn't much tension on it as the original pedal. The Beatles Pedal is the same.

    *EDIT* I get this question a lot about Jaded. The beat is a constant one one-two one one-two thing. So in your head just think *bum bum-bum bum bum-bum* but be warned it will stop at two parts in the song so watch for the quick changes. With the drum fill removing the *bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum* parts out it takes away a lot of stress. The ending will be the only one you will have to deal with and it's a simple constant motion that shouldn't be hard to nail.

    Reaper08RAre you sure you're allowed extra kicks? I hit all the kick notes by drumming the sensor on my guitar hero pedal, and only got 56/100 kicks according to the achievement screen ;) And i've had this happen more than once...

    NathAttackFor what it's worth to anyone, I just unlocked this today -- And I definitely had more consistent results by just trying to FC the song instead of messing with No-Fail. I only ever actually got 100% of the kick notes, when I got 100% of the TOTAL notes.

    xBrushedRedxI'm with NathAttack. I couldn't do the hands method. I had to actually FC the whole song on drums. Bangin the drums helped me get my foot right. Took lots of tries, but I got it about 3 months ago :)

    CrandyI think this is probably one of the hardest of all of them for a couple of reasons. One being Brain Stew is really easy to hit when the sync is a little off, where Jaded has to be dead on. The other being that drums in GDRB are borderline completely broken which makes the timing window on the sync even smaller than usual.
    Posted by Crandy on 30 Oct 15 at 04:01
    Senior ChuponOk I'll keep trying later. So basically if I get through all of Brain Stew and most of Jaded I know I'm close, but if I fall out of sync I just need to try to align it a bit better?

    Would the version of Reaper matter at all? I'm on 5.04
    Posted by Senior Chupon on 30 Oct 15 at 04:08
    CrandyReaper version shouldn't matter. It's really just getting the syncing lined up properly.
