An early NWOBHM classic, with a lot of classics in it.

This kicks ass, I hear a lot of motorhead at times (minus vocals). Tracks like Freeway Mad, Machine Gun, and Street Fighting Gang are all some kick ass heavy metal driving fast down the highway kind of songs.

Bad English
A classic album, song based on real events, classic rock n roll riff when you wanna drink beer and bang your head. Basically brilliant album whit attitude and iconic status today.
I don't get ppl call them self's metalheads, and don't like old Saxon , they are posers IMO.
Life is to short for LOVE, there is many great things to do online !!!
