    Hope you have a lot of time on your hands! Getting through all 83 songs can take anywhere from six to eight hours, depending on how long your break is between each song. You can pause or fail as much as you want; there is no achievement for blazing through like Rock Band 2's Bladder of Steel. You can play on the instrument and difficulty of your choice. I also recommend choosing the goal itself under Career goals -- it's under Band goals, subcategory "Epic Rock Band 3." This saves the time of building the setlist in Quickplay.

    Be aware that once you start playing this marathon, you cannot exit to any other game mode nor turn off your console without losing your progress. You also cannot re-calibrate your TV with the game. However, options such as lefty mode and no-fail are still readily available and you can toggle them as much as you want during the setlist. Trust me, you might need no-fail for songs like Llama or Roundabout. Turning these options on or off does not affect getting the achievement; all you really need to worry about is the ridiculous amount of time it takes to get this achievement. Good luck!

    NirumanoI just went through this, playing most of the songs on expert guitar. However i restarted the last song (free bird), cos i wanted to get the ach on a friends gamertag aswell. When I went through it again all looked fine, went through all the rewards etc.. Then WTF?!? no ach on either gamertag -.- so now i have to go through it again.. not gonna play a single song ofc, but not gonna mess with it again either.

    OmniSonic XI cannot stress this enough: You MUST have all 83 disc songs in your setlist. Not "most of the songs" as Nirumano tried. If you do not have "Imagine" or any of the on-disc songs without keys support, you need to include them in your setlist before starting.

    NearDLawlietJust go to "Play a Setlist" and choose the Endless Setlist 3 from the options.

    I just tried getting this achievement, solo Expert guitar. After about song 40, the save icon froze on-screen. Then after Rainbow In the Dark the fucking game FROZE! Couldn't reset it or do anything! If you're going for this achievement, make sure your 360 isn't SHIT (or at least make it well-ventilated) and definitely wipe the disc clean. You don't want to end up playing for 4 hours and getting absolutely nothing out of it.

    MY METHOD REQUIRES A WIRED TURBO CONTROLLER. I put on no-fail mode by pressing start then going to modifiers and putting a check mark next to no fail mode, Then I went to band goals, subcategory Epic Rock Band 3, and chose endless setlist 3, expert difficulty (don't know if it mattered just wanted to have it completed on expert). Used a wired mic , turned on turbo for the A button, and kept the A button held down all night while I slept, this ensured I would skip to the next song automatically. I just woke up to find out it worked! Took less than 7 hours.

    How to do the Turbo Controller method without a Turbo Controller

    You will need: A controller with an A button, a stopwatch, patience, and enough money to pay the impending electiricity bill.

    It's basically very lazy. You just need to know when to press the A/Green button to move to the next song. You can do what you like for the next handful of hours, but set your stopwatch at the following intervals after every time it goes you press A and reset the stopwatch to the new time. Make sure that No-Fail mode is turned on.

    If you are using a normal controller, you will not need to plug a microphone in. As long as No-Fail mode is on.

    Here is the entire setlist in this specific order and then how many minutes you have to wait before the results screen comes up:

    So you just set your timer and know that when it beeps the song is almost over. I say almost because all I did was take the song's length and round up to the nearest minute. So some songs may end up lasting longer than specified depending on how long the cutscenes take. For instance "I Love Rock N' Roll" is 2:59, so 3 minutes may not bring you to the results screen. You might have to check and wait a minute.

    So you can sit and watch TV or something and remember to press A during the ad-break or something.
    I mean what exactly could you watch that's 384 minutes long?!


    You could actually play through the entire setlist if you want, but that is REALLY tiring. That's what I did, never again I say!
