This is a classic and then along comes Eminem who totally desecrated it in his pointless raps. Oh I forgot hip hop stealing tracks once again because they are talentless to write their own material.

Again, it's about musical record companying "stroking" (swindling) new artists into something that will make them money.

Billy Squier was like a bridge between late 70s to early 80s rock. Terrifically underrated his star shined at the top brightly but for only a short time. Keep in mind he was strong enough to have Def Leppard as his opening act (the last time they opened for anyone) at the beginning of their Pyromania tour. That tour was like getting two headliners for the price of one!

tdp, I will agree that Squier is better than AC/DC or ZZ Top. That doesn't mean I don't like them, though. It's just that Billy has more talent as a hard rocker.
