Top 5 Favorite Songs

5. Mr Misunderstood – Eric Church

Reminds me of a Springsteen vibe lyrically

4. First – Cold War Kids 

I just like the groove this song has

3. Speed Of Light – Iron Maiden

Good to see Maiden back with a new release

2. Reapers – Muse

Really like how it has an Eddie Van Halen style riff embedded with a techy guitar sound

1. Gimme Shelter – Stone Sour

Always liked the female background vocals on the original Rolling Stones song and love Lzzy Hale lending her voice to do that part on this cover. Well done.
