    Has anyone ever noticed the similarities between AC/DC's "DOG Eat DOG" and "Panama". Eddie has said that he wrote Panama as a tribute to AC/DC because he was amazed at the power that they displayed in concert. He said he tried to capture some of that power when he wrote Panama. If that's true then I can tell you that he got his inspiration from the song DOG Eat DOG and put his own spin on it and called it Panama. If you listen carefully you will hear the similarities between these songs, especially at the beginning of both songs the drum beats and the guitar is almost identical. Has anyone else ever noticed this?

    I can hear the similarity. The drums and guitars in the beginning sound a lot alike.

    UW, There is no doubt that Panama is one of my favorite songs by VH, so that is how I came up with that part of my screen name and the other part, Dog, I took from the fact that my friends from high school used to call me Lump Dog, so there you go, that is how I came up with Panama Dog.

    Default evh/ac/dc

    I think eddie once said he liked the power ac/dc has.And that all the songs may sound the same but its a damn good song he said lol.I think he also said when asked,if you didnt have dlr as a front man who else would you like to have and he said he liked bon scott.Also i think human beings was inspired by ac/dc's Overdosed from (let there be rock)they sound alike w/eddie putting his own touch to it
