LMAO SAT!!!!!!  That video is hilarious!!!

I LOVED it  ;D

I actually liked the song too, the guitarist sounded a bit Brian May-ish don't you think?

OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!
Grrrl  ;)
You can't be a real country unless you have a beer and an airline. It helps if you have some kind of a football team, or some nuclear weapons, but at the very least you need a beer.

I can agree with that. How about the lush Queen harmonies near the end? Out of the few darkness tracks I've heard, this one is just dripping with "catchy-ness". Arena Rock is not dead after all!

They just may be the "next big thing". I don't know if I shoud be frightened or not!

Okay...that was the funniest video I have seen in a long time....almost made no sense at all....but I suppose it doesn't have to, it's a video afterall.

The gestapo-like bass player cracked me up.

Do I have to admit that the song was actually pretty good, in a bizarre arena-rock sort of way!  Thanks for the link Frankl.
