What's the hardest song you can play?

I saw that there's a thread in the guitar forums wiht this title, so I thought I'd see what you all can play in here. The hardest song I can play is Amazing Grace on harmonics, kinda like how Victor Wooten does, just not nearly as well. I can also play a little bit of Classical Thump, by the aforementioned Wooten.

No, really, I am actually homeschooled. It's just a little joke. I've been homeshooled my entire life.

I think the hardest song I can play all the way through is Erotomania by Dream Theater, but I'm working on some harder songs right now.

Yeah Teen Town rocks! I can play parts of it but not nearly as fast as Jaco. A drummer friend of mine brought a CD back from NAMM in February that has a guy playing a blazing version of Teen Town. I also like to play Continuum and Portrait of Tracey by Jaco. You can actually learn alot if you study his stuff. If nothing else, humility......

God bless.....

Has anyone ever heard of The Flowery Song by Five Iron Frenzy? I can play the bass line to that song. It is an awesome song.
