Teenager gets highest score for Guitar Hero III

guinnessLast week a 13 year-old boy was inducted into the Guinness World Record book by trouncing the all time high score in Guitar Hero III by over 10,000 points. His final score was 890,971.

Not impressed? He did it while playing "Through the Fire and Flames" by Dragonforce on the expert level. Still not impressed? He did it on his first try.

Daniel Johnson of Dallas, Texas said, "I’m glad that I had the opportunity to break the record and help people learn about Education is Freedom."

He broke the record in a Guitar Hero 24-hour marathon sponsored by Blockbuster Video. The event was held to benefit the non-profit organization; Education is Freedom, which is dedicated to increasing the educational quality for children in Dallas.

The old record, held by Chris Chike, was 880,920 points in March 2008.

Anyone who sees the humor and irony of this situation–an event that is trying to get the message out about increasing the quality of learning for children by holding a Guitar Hero III marathon, can step to the back of the class and giggle.
