    I'm not kidding when I say this....

    SOMEBODY GET ME A DOCTOR

    Specifically, a certain 40 seconds or so of the song about a minute in, or around the middle of the tune...

    I had a ringtone from Virgin Mobility that used the certain section of the song, and distinctly remember thinking to myself, THIS IS THE SHIT that exemplary personified VH in a short little 20 to 30 second blistering Cataclysmic bombastic nuclear bomb of explosive audio dynamite.

    That one ringtone section of SGMAD captured everything about VH in a nutshell. All 4 members. Drums. Guitar. Bass. Vocals.

    I distinctly remember back in 2007 or so, I had a new Virgin Mobility cell phone & they had ringtones that we could buy & I bought 2 or 3 VH tunes. It was cool because we could assign the different specific ringtone song to a specific phone number. So you know who's calling based on the song when you hear it. You'd know who's calling because the song is set to different contacts.

    I'm gonna say...

    Mean Street

    VH at it's most angry and primal. Even after all these years it still sounds savage!

    I think this question was asked previously but always fun to get different perspectives.

    Thumbs up

    The Full Bug to me.

    Although it has harmonica, it is one of the best boogies ever (as great as I'm the One, Loss of Control, Sinner's Swing! or Hot for Teacher).

    I do love everything on that tune. Even the title kick some ass!! And it's from the BEST summer record ever released in the entire Rock'n'Roll history, Diver Down!!
