2 Wheels of Steel

I like this one, too. It has on Grand Theft Auto Episodes from Liberty City. I like the intro of this song. I recommend it, too. - Jean666

This song should be too repetitive for a 6 minute song but It is really too short

One of the most badass riffs of all time

First one I heard, instantly loved it, got me into the band, best heavy metal band in my opinion, and this song is the best one of the lot, love it

I love this one and "The Eagle Has Landed." Thanks to my British Brethren for providing the BEST concert EVER in El Paso Texas while "allegedly" backing up "Triumph"

14 Machine Gun

Just a great song all in all, has really good guitar riffs and vocals

15 Sea of Life

Amazing compilation of riffs, solos and dramatic vocals. A masterpiece that should easily be in top 10. Personally, I grew up on Saxon and English metal - but Saxon got better with age.

This song is amazing. My absolute number one favorite from them and one of my favorite songs of all time.

My favorite Saxon song.

With all respect for the 80s classics, this “modern” song beats by far all other songs. A masterpiece by saxon. Sea of life has everything raw heavy metal riffs, a lot of soul and melody, and a killer solo and outro.
