Great song- driving tune off The Revolution by Night. Has Randy Jackson (American Idol) guesting on bass- check out the slap work there!
Great vocal hook, and that breakdown bridge after the solo is brilliant!
I remember this tune having limited airplay on album rock radio over 30 years ago, then never played afterwards. MSG in the 1980's had the tune What We Need, but I'd thought that it sounded like a tune that I'd heard before. It sounds very much like Take Me Away. I think B.O.C. should get more credit for this minor hit of their.
Such an epic song, will always remember the time I used to listen to this on my brand new sony Walkman when I was eleven years old... ! Rock on
Energy is this song. Can't just listen to it. You HAVE to move. Great balance in vocals, bass, drums, and awesome guitar.
Guitar bass and drums work perfectly together with well placed vocal breaks.V1 Comment
Loved this song since the first time I heard it in 1975.
The epic Angriff of stratospheric faux-swashbuckling, survival and a valiant rhythm.
This is one of their most heaviest songs- if you play guitar, the riff is intoxicating! Was made for the movie Heavy Metal, but wasn't picked- and I can't figure out why.
Unique song that shows how versatile BOC is. The riff is huge, the jazz break is just crazy! Too cool...
Epic! Starts with a crushing riff courtesy of Buck Dharma, later it goes into a Mos Eisely cantina-style jazz interlude, then into a catchy chorus
(with creepy vocal harmonies), and the lyrics are about gangbanging a chick on a spaceship as it blasts off into outer space.
The best horror song along with Tattoo Vampire and some others! One thing though, Allen reaped the piano with grace. Joe's writing and singing yet created another masterpiece.
Haunting song about the famous vampire. Creepy!
A seriously underrated gem that packs some serious punch. Can't believe Godzilla starts "Spectres" instead of this. The glimmer of chromium steel in a damn desert, enough said.
One of their best. The Call and response is mesmerizing, especially live! A great storyline too.

This song rulz all! Bow Down! - fireinside96
A Buck Dharma masterpiece. Perfect. One of their best songs- should have been a huge hit.
This song need to be more famous because it's awesome!
This song is a masterpiece. Is such a beautiful mix of soft rythms with old rock and roll and kinda beatles style in the voice. Simply amazingV1 Comment
Great driving song off Heaven Forbid, a solid album that most people don't know about. It's a favorite.
This is BOC on steriods! I can't say enough about the entire Heaven Forbid album. This song is power, pure and simple. Warning- if you are driving the car, this one can get you a speeding ticket!
