    Well, they both have acoustic guitar and Dave singing at the beginning, they both are a rather "bluesy type of rock", and they both have a name sounding like a frozen desert.

    The question I have, is if the Full Bug was actually called Banana Split, would we think it sounded like Ice Cream Man?
    Right here I say....

    This has been argued a million times - it certainly is a modern Ice Cream Man in that is has the acoustic first and then pours on the hard rock - but it is a completely different song with a great sound.

    Nope. You are not the only one. L.O.L.

    Initially, at times I felt miffed at these comparisons, as I love the song so much and felt the lyrics and solo's to be outstandingly phenomenal, and a completely fresh new tune unique onto itself.

    But I was sort of wrong I guess, as Dave just stated it was sort of like " Ice Cream Man ", part 2.

    Either way, I still don't get it, other than the accoustic intro and the tempo being the same speed. I guess the actual song structure is somewhat simalar.

    If it was called "Stay Hungry" I would say 95% of the criticism wouldn't be there.
    Right here I say....

    Does it matter? The Mighty VH's version of Ice Cream Man rocked 1978 - present. Stay Frosty rocked 2012 - present. Will these two similar yet distinct compositions continue to rock in the future??? .......... Stay tuned and stay frosty.

    Is Crazy Train and Lightning Strikes the same song? They are both in F# Minor and feature distorted guitars. Oh yeah Ozzy sings too.
