hardest song to sing AND play

ive been singing and playing at the same time for a while. I even do it with songs where the singer isnt even the guitarist or bassist, just for 1)thew sake of being able to do it and 2)so i dont seem as unentertaining when playing without a band.

but anyway what are some hard songs to play and sing at the same time? I wanna perfect this art.

Master Of Puppets - Metallica, James Hetfield is God-like when it comes to doing that sort of thing.

Stuff by Megadeth can also be really challenging to play and sing.

Try some tech-metal stuff like Sikth or something by Between The Buried And Me.

A lot of Megadeth is real hard.

Wrong Side by Strapping Young Lad is really though too. (At least the sweep picking part)

Can't believe I forgot Dream Theater. Good luck with that...

Lamb of God can be hard too.

Master of Puppets isn't that hard.

Trivium's Gunshot to the Head of Trepidation is intermediate.

my bad, i know i said songs that the singer isnt even the guitarist for, but it would help alot better if people didnt just post any random hardest song they know.

lets start a little basic(er). What are like the hardest songs to play and sing by bands such as, Muse, White Stripes, Coheed, Police, even trivium or bodom(considerign they play AND sing), metallica maybe.

Im not looking to sing while playing fast leads, that can be done the second your fingers remember the notes, but rather im looking for songs with the vocals on odd timing with the riffs or chords, to help isolate my voice from my hands.

Necrophagist and Nile are probably the toughest, but start with stuff like Black Label Society and Coheed and Cambria.

A few notable songs where the guitarist is actually the one singing when they play these songs live would be:

FCPREMIX by the Fall of Troy
The Backend of Forever by Coheed and Cambria

Gunshot and Like Light to Flies by Trivium are a little challenging.

Try some Lamb of God. For a while I was screaming and playing Black Label by them. Can't say my throat liked it much, but it was good practice for keeping voice and fingers separate.

Maybe The Spy Hunter by Project 86?

Burden in my Hand by Soundgarden is pretty hard to sing and play

Battery - Metallica.

James Hetfield is a hell of a rhythm player/singer.
