    Default Killer or Filler?

    Choose wisely ...

    One foot is NOT filler, fer chrissakes.

    That tune is like new wave/punk rock/metal all mixed together.
    Love that creepy keyboard opening riff, love Dave's pissed/urgent vocals, and
    the guitar solo provokes wood EVERY single time.

    FOOT caps off FW in spectacular fashion.

    Yes, and you chose poorly ...

    Filler.
    Epic solos, yet don't care for the vocal at all. Sounds like a shitty reverb effect recorded in a dumpster. Plus, the tune starts with keys/synth and you know that real VH can't have that...

    Weakest song on the album IMO.

    That's exactly why I never cared for it.

    It's contrived imo.

    The tune starts with awesome sounding keys/synth with major balls, unlike many of its successors. Even if it were the weakest song on Fair Warning, that would just make it the shortest giant.

    Keep in mind, that this is the same guy that claimed WACF was loaded with duds, on another forum.

    When he speaks of CVH, i laugh.

    Chris, you gotta start another thread similar to this, but use a Sam era tune.

    I have a feeling which one!
