    Both songs rock, but I prefer D.O.A.

    SGMAD is EPIC!

    DOA is ferocious & fun, but SGMAD is a defining track on II, and beyond.

    SGMAD in a landslide for me.

    While I do not think there are are any weak songs on VH II, DOA is my least favorite easily on this record.

    Not to veer off the thread and these two songs, but I think Outta Love Again is my favorite on VH II. The groove, EVH playing the riff behind the beat, Dave's banshee vocals, Alex's tremendous drumming, the vocal harmonies, Ed's killer solo..........that song has everything that is great about VH.

    DOA was my least fave too, though i love it.
    It's the first VH riff i ever mastered.

    VHII is one of my all time fave albums, love every song on it,
    but i always ranked DOA last, even though i really like it.

    Somebody Get Me A Doctor was my favorite song on VH II for a very long time. That honor now belongs to Light Up The Sky. SGMAD is now 2nd, probably followed by Outta Love Again. There is not a single song on VH II that I do not love. Killer follow up to the greatest album of all-time.

    Well I could live without ‘You’re No Good,’ although Eddie’s solo on that is like molten lava, but I agree with you Coulda

    I dig You're No Good, especially the solo.

    I think it could be argued VH2 is the best album and DOA is the best song. It just sounds like a party.

    It could definitely be argued that VH2 is their most underrated album. I love DOA, but it is not even in my top 5 on VH2.

    Somebody Get Me a Doctor is one of Ed's coolest riffs ever. DOA is a worthy opponent, but SGMAD for the win.
