10! Awesome track to open Your Arsenal ...and here I am!! Moz has arrived...with authority!

This song has teeth-I love the loud, crunchy, hair "tommy gun" guitars :guitar: what a great back-to-back w/Glamorous Glue.

It's the perfect stage invading song. Everytime I hear it, I'm reminded of my valiant attempt :cool: and subsequent failure :tears:
