    I. The Achievements
    -------------------
    Rock Band currently has 50 Achievements worth a total of 1000 Gamerscore
    points. I have included the easiest songs for certain achievements as 
    well as added the Downloadable Content songs as well.  Which are marked 
    with the ** symbols.
    
    A. Solid Gold, Baby!
      - Gold Star a song 25G
      - Easiest Song to do this on is Today by The Smashing Pumpkins, also
        if you play Expert Bass on So Whatcha Want and 100 percent it and
        use your star power, you can easily gold star this song.
    
    
    B. The Bachman-Turner Award
      - Maintain deployed Overdrive for 90 seconds 25G
      - This doesn't have to be done solo, can be done with a band, have 1
        person probably the drummer deploy their's first, then when it is
        about to run out have someone activate their's and so on.  Probably
        easier to do on Medium so the notes are easier.
    
    
    C. Flawless Fretwork
      - Score 100% notes hit as a guitarist on Expert 25G
      - Probably any song off the first tier would be easiest for this.
        Today is still really easy for this one.  If you have your Rock 
        Band 1 license and all those songs, you can pick an easy song off
        of that game as well.
    
    
    D. Flawless Guitar Solo
      - 100% a guitar solo on Expert, using only the solo buttons 20G
      - This achievement sucks because it suckers you into getting a
        Rock Band guitar, you can use either the original Rock Band one
        or the new one.  You must use the lower fret buttons and 100 
        percent a solo on expert.  Today has a really easy solo.
    
    
    E. Flawless Drumming
      - Score 100% notes hit as a drummer on Expert 25G
      - This is a reason to get xbox live if you don't already have so.
        There is a free song on the Downloads section called Charlene, 
        Download that and this achievement is a breeze, if you have the
        MS points, download Silver by The Pixies, that song is ridiculsously
        easy on expert drums.  If you are looking for a song on RB2 itself,
        I would recommend Float On.
    
    
    F. Flawless Singing
      - Score a 100% rating as a vocalist on Expert 25G
      - I recommend a Beastie Boys song, all you have to do is talk through
        it or if you've downloaded the Earache pack 1, try that At The Gates
        song, it is real short and you just have to talk through it.
    
    
    G. Flawless Groove
      - Score 100% notes hit as bassist, up-strums only, on Expert 25G
      - Easiest song ever to do this is So Whatcha Want. Remember to Strum Up.
    
    H. Comeback Kid
      - Defeat the last player that defeated you over Xbox LIVE in 
        either Score Duel or Tug of War. 15G
      - Just find a player online and if you are really good, let them
        beat you and then on the rematch, beat them.  Can be done in Player.
    
    I. Victory!
      - Defeat a player in either Score Duel or Tug of War. 15G
      - Just beat someone online, doesn't matter which gametype. Can be done
        in Player.
    
    
    J. Band Savior
      - Be a savior three times during a single song 20G
      - Requires at least 3 players in the band, 1 must fail twice and
        then the other can fail once.  Just save them all 3 times and
        you have it.
    
    K. Overdrive Overdose
      - Achieve an 8x Band Multiplier 25G
      - Must have a full Band, just wait until everyone has Overdrive
        and then have everyone activate it.
    
    L. Hello Cleveland!
      - Deploy Vocal Overdrive 4 times in a single song 20G
      - This is fairly simple since it can be done on any difficulty.
        Just pick a song that is fairly long and sing really well on
        it.  Pick a song with a lot of talking parts.
    
    M. Million Point Club
      - Earn more than 1,000,000 points in a single song. 25G
      - Have a full band and just pick a long song and do really well.
        Easier if everyone is playing on expert and doing really well.
        Green Grass And High Tides is good if you have everyone playing
        on Hard or higher.
    
    N. You're Hired!
      - Hire a staff member 10G
      - While playing Band World Tour, you will be given a chance to
        hire a staff member, just pick one and you get this.
    
    O. Needs more Umlauts!
      - Make a band logo 10G
      - When you create a band, go to band profile and you can create
        a logo, you just throw something on it and then save.
    
    P. The San Dimas 4th Annual Award
      - Compete in a Battle of the Bands event 15G
      - When on the Band menu, you can select to play a Battle of The
        Bands challenge.  You don't have to do well and can do it by
        yourself, just finish it and you get this.
    
    Q. You Killed the Radio Star
      - Make a music video in World Tour 15G

    S. Along for the Ride
      - Beat an instrument-specific challenge while playing another
        instrument  10G
      - Have two playing, have one playing guitar and do the guitar
        challenge and you play something else, you will get this at the
        end.
    
    T. Challenge Novice
      - Complete either 25 challenges on Medium, 10 challenges on 
        Hard, or 5 challenges on Expert 10G
      - On the Band World Tour menu you can pick challenges, just complete
        the requirement for one of these, I recommend finding easy ones and
        do them on expert. 
    
    U. Challenge Master
      - Complete 25 Challenges on Hard Difficulty or 10 Challenges on 
        Expert Difficulty 15G

    Secret Achievements
    -------------------
    
    AS.Buy a Real Instrument Already!
      - Beat an "Impossible" Challenge with all players on Expert 
        Difficulty 35G
      - After you unlock the last tier of challenges, you will have a
        few to pick from, just pick an easy one for you and complete
        it on expert.  Doing this on Drums, good luck with that.  If
        you are doing this on guitar or bass just watch out for Panic
        Attack, Painkiller and Visions.
    
    AT.Rock Immortal Inductee
      - Joined the Rolling Stone Rock Immortals list 20G
      - This is the same as the Hall of Fame Inductee from Rock Band 1,
        keep playing Band World Tour until you can play the Hall of Fame.
    
    AU.Vinyl Artist
      - Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Medium 20G
      - Unlock the Endless Setlist in Band World Tour and complete
        it on Medium, Takes a long time to complete.  Must play all
        songs on the game.  It takes place in Shanghai.
    
    AV.Gold Artist
      - Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Hard 30G
      - Same as Vinyle Artist but do it on Hard.
    
    AW.Platinum Artist
      - Finished the Endless Setlist 2 in World Tour on Expert 50G
      - Same as Above, but do it on Expert, I recommend doing the
        Guitar/Bass Combo, there are some pretty hard songs on 
        guitar and bass, so you can watch each other's backs for this
        one.  If you are really decent at expert vocals or expert
        bass, you can attempt this by yourself.  Only songs on expert
        bass you need to worry about are Painkiller, Panic Attack and
        Visions.
    
    AX.The Bladder of Steel Award
      - Completed the Endless Setlist 2 without pausing or failing. 25G
      - Best bet for doing this is to have a rock band party, whenever
        someone has to go relieve him/herself, just pass the guitar to 
        someone else.  Also, you may want to do it on medium, so it is
        way easier.  I would say easy but medium is the lowest you can
        do it on.
