…kick ass piano intro…
"As soon as you are able,
Woman I am willing,
To make the break that we are on the brink of.
My cup is on the table,
My love is spilling,
Waiting here for you to take and drink of.
So if you’re tired of the same old story,
Turn some pages.
I’ll be here when you are ready to
Roll with the changes…

Rule One: No Ballads Allowed.
Rule Two: Z106 wouldn’t know modern Rock if it bit them on the ass. They’ve been playing the same, ancient, moldy, 70’s era crap for 25 years now. Thank God I discovered the Internet, Napster and resumed listening to music awhile back.
Def Leppard: Animal
Def Leppard: Photograph
Def Leppard: Slang
Def Leppard: Foolin
Def Leppard: Rock of Ages
Okay, to shorten that list, everything off Pyromania, Hysteria and Euphoria except ballads.
Quiet Riot: Cum on Feel the Noize
Dream Theater: Caught in a Web
Extreme: Get the Funk Out
Journey: Be Good to Yourself
Journey: Seperate Ways
Alice Cooper: House of Fire, Poison, Elected, Feed my Frankenstein…
This could be a long list and that’s at least ONE good CD there.
I’ll echo some votes and add to them.
Stinkfist by Tool must be cranked with all the windows down.
Du Hast, you might as well put some money aside to pay the speeding ticket. Listening to that song as loud as the radio will go on Lake Shore Drive is one of life’s great pleasures.
Crazy Train OF COURSE.
and come on. How about SISTER CHRISTIAN? That ROCKS baby, rocks.
I also crank up Santa Monica by Everclear and Jump Around by House of Pain

Took the words just right out of my mouth. “Heard Mr. Young sing about her. Yea, I heard ole Neil put her down. I want Neil Young to remember a Southern man don’t need him around anyhow.”
I always thought that so cool that they jousted him in one of the most popular songs they had. Too cool.
Oh another song “Jump Around” just gota crank that one.
