    Panama = Dog Eat Dog ?!

    A bit of VH trivia... This morning Dave said on his radio show that Panama was based off AC/DC's "Dog Eat Dog" riff. He played it on the air and then Brian played a snippet of Panama. Different key but very similar...

    VERY similar indeed.

    Eddie always said the song was inspired by AC/DC's power chord barrage, he loved that wall of sound they created.

    Best of both worlds has the same chords as AC/DC's High Way to hell and its very similar in the beat too.

    There used to a beer commercial that had a very similar riff to BOBW and it came out around the same time as 5150.

    BOBW is a "subconcious" rip of Yes' "Roundabout" riff.Check it.

    Also, 'A.F.U." is very similar to ACDC's "Riff Raff", which is about the best riff ever written.

    Check out the similarities between "Black And Blue" and "Rock and Roll Ain't Noise Pollution".

    Both songs are in E, but Eddie tunes down a half step on "Panama".

    I wish Brian Young would go back to The Atomic Punks. The guy does an unbelievable EVH.

    okay, got to throw this one out there too...

    The TWILY intro also sounds like the country song Independence Day (Martina McBride)...sorry, I live in Nashville...so be default, I MUST hear country music.
