Complete Discography (Platinum): Wow! You’ve gotten all the trophies in Rock Band 2.
-Collect all other trophies in the game.

Solid Gold, Baby! (Silver): Gold Starred a song.
-This can be done with The easiest song to do it on is “So Watcha Want” by Beastie Boys while playing Bass.

Flawless Fretwork (Bronze): Scored 100% notes hit as a guitarist on Expert.
-I recommend choosing an easy song like “Charlene” to accomplish this.  The song is free from the PS Store and is pretty short.

Flawless Drumming (Bronze): Scored 100% notes hit as a drummer on Expert.
-I recommend “Poly” by Nirvana.  There are only a handful of notes to hit.  You will have to purchase it from the PS Store though.  If you don’t want to spend the money then I suggest you use “Charlene” for this too.

Flawless Singing (Bronze): Scored a 100% rating as a vocalist on Expert.
-The easiest way to do this is to choose “So Watcha Want” by the Beastie Boys and just hold the mic up to the speaker.  This will give you 100% without having to actually sing the song.  If you want to do it the right way than I would go for “Visions” by the Beastie Boys.  This is one of the last songs you will unlock so you may have to wait awhile.

Flawless Groove (Bronze): Scored 100% notes hit as a bassist, up-strums only, on Expert.
-“So Watcha Want” by the Beastie Boys seems to be the easiest song for this.  There is probably 20 notes total in the song and they are all green.  Just remember to only up-strum.

Flawless Guitar Solo (Bronze): 100% on a guitar solo on Expert, using only the solo buttons.
-Foor this trophy you have to get a 100% on a solo on Expert using only the solo buttons.  This means that you can’t strum the notes either.  I used the song “El Scorcho” by Weezer.  If you don’t feel like buying it you can use any song with an easy solo.

The Bachman-Turner Award (Bronze): Maintained deployed Overdrive for 90 seconds.
-This can be done with a whole band.  I managed to do it with just two people.  I used the song “The Kill” by 30 Seconds to Mars.  Just make sure that someone is in Overdrive for 90 seconds.  This counts the time for all members of the band.  So as long as Overdrive is active for someone for 90 straight you will get the trophy.

Million Point Club (Bronze): Earned more than 1,000,000 points in a single song.
-You will need a full band to get this on most songs.  A great song to use is “So Watcha Want” by Beastie Boys on Expert.  If you are not up to playing on Expert go online and try to find three other players who can play on Expert.

Victory! (Bronze): Defeated a player in either Score Duel or Tug of War.
-This can be done online or offline.  If you do it offline just make sure you both use the same instrument.

Comeback Kid (Bronze): Defeated the last player that defeated you in either Score Duel or Tug of War.
-This must be done online.  Just play with a friend and lose to them.  On the next song make sure you win.

Band Savior (Bronze): Was a savior 3 times during a single song.
-You must have three or more members in your band.  One member should be designated as the savior.  The other members should take turns failing until you have done it three times. Note: A single person can only fail twice before the whole band fails the song.

Hello Cleveland! (Bronze): Deployed Vocal Overdrive 4 times in a single song.
-This is very easy to do.  Just deploy Overdrive 4 times during a song.   All you have to do is say anything when the section scrolls across the screen.

Overdrive Overdose (Bronze):Achieved an 8x Band Multiplyer.
-You must have a complete four member band and deploy Overdrive at the same time.  The bassist and guitarist should wait until the drummer and vocalist have used Overdrive because they do not have a choice of when to use it.
