Side 1 and the title track are radio staples so it will be nice to see Side 2 get some loving next year. The tune I would love to hear most live again is “Gods of War”, which I think is the underrated gem on Hysteria. Plus, I haven’t seen them play it live since their Jones Beach show in 2000 when they were touring for “Euphoria”. And it’s one that they do well.
Another one I’ve never heard live is ‘Excitable’. Now this song gets quite a bit of flak but I’ve always enjoyed it and wouldn’t mind hearing the Leps cranking it out live.
How about you? Which side 2 tune would you love to hear them play live?
Hi, I'm Pete Rizzo, early morning elixir for your weekends.
I love music and I love talking about it. I grew up listening to bands like Rush (best band on the planet!), Van Halen (Diamond Dave all the way), AC/DC (Bon rules!) and Genesis (the Gabriel years). But my true love is progressive rock and heavy metal. The louder, crunchier, more bombastic and self-indulgent, the better!
When I’m not on the air, I’m either training in martial arts, deciding which tattoo I should get next, reading a good book (I still enjoy turning actual pages), or my wife and I are planning our next big travel excursion.
I’m on every Saturday and Sunday morning. You can also follow me on on Twitter @PeteRizzoWBAB. I’d love to hear from you.
