    Hello. My name is JWS, and I think Judgement Day flat-out rocks. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    No question it's among my favorite Hagar songs. #2, behind Right Now. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I just don't think this song gets the props it deserves. Totally underrated IMO. Probably the hardest-rocking Hagar song.

    I agree. Judgement Day is an awesome song. Fast, heavy, good lyrics and solo. It's my 4th favorite song on FUCK behind Right Now, Poundcake, and The Dream Is Over.

    I used to like this a lot 10 years ago. But now I say that this song is very lightweight. If I want heavy Halen I'll play Atomic Punk, On fire. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I love everything about Judgement Day. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img] One of VH's best Sammy-era tunes.

    I agree, Judgement Day doesn flat out kick ass. It was nice to hear some old school playing on that tune. As for the solos, simply amazing! Great concert song as well.

    I like everything besides the words for the verses. You can tell Hagar sounds out of place singing this one since he'd rather have a love song instead of a Judas Priest retread (i.e. You Got Another Thing Comin'.)

    I think the whole F.U.C.K cd is underrated by most people on this site. It is without a doubt my fav Sammy era cd. I like the others, but none come close to this for me.
    I like balls and chunck in the production quality and this one has it.

    Man, what is it with all the sudden "Sammy lyric intro-spection"?? [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Judgement Day is one kick ass song that rocks from front to back...and the lyrics are all part of the package! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] Heavy groove and a thumping beat keep it kicking all the way thru!

    This one DEFINTELY goes to 11! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    This is the only song I've ever "headbanged" to, (don't want any "dain bramage [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] ) and IMO has the perfect tempo for it.

    Mikey nailed it on the head!

    Priest retread?! [img]smilies/confused.gif[/img] I like Priest, but Another Thing Comin' is a sellout for radio airplay (shoulda been on Point of Entry--a sellout album)--the song doesn't do anything for me.

    One of the best Sam-era tunes for sure, and definitely one of the highlights of "FUCK."

    ** More Priest - As for "Another Thing Comin'," it really doesn't fit well on "Screaming For Vengeance," I agree it should have been on "Point of Entry" (a shit record other than "Heading Out To The Highway").

    Ya know, I like the main riff in that song, but I can honestly say that there is something soft about it that doesnt fit. Maybe its sam, maybe not, I dont know. I like it, but its missing something. Maybe I got all hyped up about it reading guitar players review and ed saying it was "a head banger" and let my expectations rise, but I was just a tad disapointed with it. And I know its nifty and all, but that three finger tapping thing ed does? I'm not real fond of it. Doesnt sound that great to me. I'm sure its tough/complicated/respected, and all that, but it just doesnt sound great.
