    I know your username is Jungle Drummer but I would've thought as a drummer that HFT would register a little higher.

    The only real runaway for me was Unchained vs. RWTD. Well, that and I'm the One. The rest were pretty much a coin flip.
    The only genre I really know is Van Halen.

    I have to say I'm surprised you took ATBL over Sinner's Swing!

    Although it is the cream of the crop and all these matchups are tough.

    Yeah, tough match for HFT. EWS is, and always will be, my all time favorite song. Lol, then I noticed I didn't pick the other double bass shuffle, ITO, either! I know that doesn't make sense, but I really love the laid back swagger of DDL, too. I don't know...maybe I should've taken I'm The One. Second guessing that one

    There's really no wrong answer at this point.

    It was a tough choice.

    I picked ATBL because it takes me back to that first moment i heard it
    at an amusement park in 1980, cranked loud for some "rock & roll" themed ride.

    I remember getting goose bumps, because the sound of that intro just floored me.
    And the entire song was incredible.

    It was a moment i'll never forget.

    I'm not a drummer but there's just something about that double bass shuffle that makes me want to move. That said I actually like the US Fest performance of EWS better than the studio version. There's something about that song live that makes it better. Even the Tokyo Dome performance.

    It's funny, i actually prefer the opposite.

    The studio version just sounds so thick & brown, it kinda growls.
    The guitar tone at the US FESTIVAL just sounded too thin & screechy (though, it still was a raw,
    cool sound) compared to the warmth of the album version.

    I've always felt like the WACF version sounds darker, somehow.
    Even Dave's jungle yelps sound menacing.

    The Live version has more of a party vibe, which is cool too.
