I can't really say that I like the original that much because I've heard it too much, But I love it in comparison to this!

Ok, that one sucked pretty bad, but this one is even more tragic since they seem to take it pretty serious.
Its like a migraine with sharp knives in your head.

You just wanna torch the whole stage, with them on it. :devil:

I guess everything could be topped.
You could have a bunch of drooling retards singing, and playing it backwards on a bagpipe while someone is strangling a screaming cat.

PS: No animal were harmed in the making of that sentence.

You watched us on 'Britain's Got Talent' didn't you? That was a perfect critique! Thank you.

Yeah, it was awesome. Even Joey Tempest was shocked of the performance and how accurate it was to the original.
The drooling chorus harmonies with the death agony of the screaming cat was spot on.

No cover of that song will ever be good... because the original is HORRIBLE!

I agree, the keyboard melody pierce the brain, John Norum's guitarsolo is the one thing that makes it worth listen to.
They have make amends by making a few good albums in the recent years though.

GASP! That song is iconic to the 80's. That's like saying Pop Rox candy was horrible.
