    If I remember right (haven't listened to it in a long time) that song can be heard on the "Dawn of 5150" bootleg, it's a 5150 leftover. It's basically an other version of "Stompin' 8H", the song he played at SNL.

    I do beleive Summer Nights replaced that song on 5150. I also thought DLR was involved in the lyrics of I Want Action.
    Just go for it!

    I heard this a few years ago on the net; can't recall where or when?

    The groove at the beginning sounds like Good Enough. Definitely from 5150 era. I can understand why it didn't make it to album though. Shows promise but ultimately doesn't live up to by the end of song. I wonder if this music was from one of the songs Dave worked on before he left. I always wondered what they would've sounded like.

    The riff was used as "twist the knife" on Steve Lukather's solo album, and became "Dirty Water Dog" on III - tell me if i'm wrong...

    The main riff was also later used in "Dirty Water Dog" if you listen close enough...
    "I respect that youre passionate about this but what your saying is complete idiocy..." - MF5150 on McDonald's "preying" on young kids.

    "He was born a human, he's a horse's ass by proxy." - It's Mike on Eddymon.

    Maybe it's just the audio, but this song sounds like Ed was playing a Steinberger
    I'm cool.

    Any body have an MP3 of that. That was pretty damn cool. I like the Stompin riff with the lyrics. Much cooler than Dirty Water Dog. Sounds kind of like a Robert Palmer song

    The music sounded pretty cool.

    Sounds a bit like "Yankee Rose" meets "Good Enough" meets "Dirty Water Dog", no?

    Definitely a song that had potential. It needed to be tweaked a bit but you could see they were headed somewhere with that one. They should have cleaned this one up and included it on 5150 in place of Get Up. Get Up is fucking horrible.
