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!
