Just throwing this out there... mainly because I think ARB is the best (single-style)rock song that has come from the band since its re-conception. Not because its heavy, or Jimmy's drumming, or the wanker solo, but just the overall groove and feel.

Listening to ARB next to the latest performances of Bodies, it makes me realize how much they've changed, but that they need to truly let go. Bodies seems like a pop song now. No screaming and just watered down. ARB has the energy I'm used to.

Does anyone have info about who wrote it? Just Billy or maybe Jeff too? The bridge/outro riff doesn't seem like a Billy riff to me.

Neither wrote it--it's originally by the irish metal band Primordial.

Whether you all are being sarcastic or not, its obviously not a cover of this: <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Mmz77V2J2sI&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Mmz77V2J2sI&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

And Springbridge, how is my o.p. funny? If SP put ARB out to the radio stations as a "single" it would kill.

Is As Rome Burns a cover or not? Because if it isn't your post isn't funny.
