    This one was a total surprise to me when I first heard it! The chorus is 110% better than of the old. I totally crapped my pants. -Sinners Swing

    This song is also way rejuvinated! The outro solos to this song(theres what? like 3 solos?) were just "jaw-dropping". -Girl Gone Bad

    As far as improvement and new appreactiation for a song it would have to be SS for sure.

    And yes that's my final answer.

    Girl Gone Bad, the outro to this song is just killer. Alex is at the top of his game in this song!

    This is a tough one. They're both so killer. I'd have to go with Sinner's Swing though.

    Although I love how Eddie rips in Sinner's, I give the nod to HOP as a whole.

    Ed's guitar is maybe better on Sinners Swing! But from a drummers point of view, I gotta go with Girl Gone Bad. Alex just kicks ass all over that song from start to finish. So, GGB by a thread.

    Gotta go with Sinner's Swing.

    This one also should have gotten regular radio airplay through the years but I'm guessing the "she looked so fuckin' good" line kept it off the airwaves.

    My cousin and I used to try and request it all the time to the local stations in Seattle when we were kids and they would never play it because of that line. I always loved it how Dave timed it perfectly so "fuckin' " came during the slight pause in Ed's riff.
