    Okay here's one for all you peeps out there, it's been awhile but thought I'd start a "vs" thread since I haven't seen them here in awhile.

    I'm not goin' to explain to much about these songs cause I want to see what you guys think, then I'll post my fav a little later.

    Whoa EYES! Nuthin' like startin' at the top of the heap, huh?

    Wow! 2 of the most incredible classic VH era songs of all time, both of them filled with the sway and swagger of the greatest frontman to EVER hit the stage as well as some of the finest fretboard work that could shred granite! I hate to have to pick one over the other, but I think I have to give the SLIGHTEST edge to...

    Mean Street.

    At least you didn't do Full Bug vs. Light Up The Sky...

    yet!

    Both songs are amazing! I love the killer metal sounding riffs at the beginning of Romeo Delight! That crunches!

    But I'm gonna give the slight edge to Mean Street

    Mean Street, hands down. One of the rawest VH songs (if not THE rawest) ever written.

    Well damn? This one was easy for me, besides listening to it on live tapes and cd boots this song is the best opener I think VH has ever had.

    It also has more energy then it's counterpart with prob the best bridge ever made by VH.

    Well, I had to go and listen to both of these songs back to back. Ya know to compare them. And I still can't make up my mind. So I guess I'm just gonna have to delare it a tie.
