Here's What you've come up with.


1) Superheroes (23)
2) Street Lethal (20)
3) Scarified (20)
4) Motorman (18)
5) Loud N Clear (15)
6) Into The Night (13)
7) Snakebite (13)
8) Hammer Away (12)
9) (TIE) Gone Too Far, Poison Eyes, Sacrifice (10)


Honorable:
17Th Moon (9)
Godzilla (9)
Scit Scat Wah (9)
Heart Of A Lion (9)
Let The Spirit Fly

I'm VERY surprised to see Sacrifice. Shocked in fact. I would have never guessed.

Also I'm frankly surprised to see Gone Too Far and Poison Eyes ahead of 17th Moon, Godzilla and Let The Spirit Fly.

Well..in Sacrifice's case....it's only on 2nd heat...it's never been played live (as far as I know), nobody ever talks about it, and I KNOW nobody in the band has it on their radar list of songs.

You would generally characterize it as a throw away/filler song.

It was played twice. Once by Racer X (I have a bootleg somewhere [maybe]) and once by The Electric Fence (it's on youtube).

I love Sacrifice. Best intro riff ever.

But the electric fence version is QUITE different than the RX one

Paul said they played Sacrifice a couple of times. "and they were both killer". One time in San Francisco, and i don`t know if I`m right but:

Secont time must be on their LAST concert. The bootleg Lamer is talking about is a HUGE file that Tak uploaded here some time ago(and I couldn`t put my hands on it :cry: )

and yeah....SACRIFICE is one of my favorite songs from RX!


To Ken: I think that nobody talks about it, because the band itself didn`t "pay attention" to it, since there`s only one bootleg with the song. And I think that`s a good selection of songs. In my case, I`d like to hear songs that were never played live, or that don`t have good quality recording on llive records.

NOW LAMER: Mr Seach Button, go look for that Quote were PG talkks about Sacrifice

I'm not saying it's bad.....The intro is fantastic.....


Just think of ALL the Racer X tunes out there...and there's some pretty darn good ones.....a little known song made the Top 10....just interesting, that's all.

I've tried to pick ones that I haven't seen played live much or at all.

Mad At The World (I love that song)
Blowin Up The Radio
Sacrifice
Sunlit Nights
Poison Eyes
Motorman
Snakebite
Lady Killer
Gone Too Far
Let The Spirit Fly

I'd rather see songs that I haven't seen played live than see Scarified or the usual ones again.

But anything by Racer X is awesome so I don't really mind! :)

I LOVE Sacrifice!!! One of my fav. RX tunes. 8) I was trying to be a little realistic though, that's one of those songs that just ISN'T the same without Bruce.. same thing when Sunlit Nights crossed my mind (my fav. part is the harmonies during the chorus) and Poison Eyes and Loud And Clear and... all these songs just sound incomplete to me without harmonies.

9 votes for SSW?! I think a more appropriate instrumental to be suggested would be King Of The Monsters, Phallic Tractor, and Catapult To Extinction.

Honestly I don't even enjoy listening to Scarified with only one guitarist. I feel so fortunate to have heard and witnessed Scarified and Scit Scat Wah (complete) with my own eyes and ears and I think it'd be very tragic if they are never played properly again.

besides the instrumentals I'd say that list is pretty good. I still <3 mine the best though. 8) Ken's would be good too.

Sacrifice, Gone too far and Sunlit Nights are the best songs beside the obvious hits

I am not surprised to not see any songs from Getting Heavier. I like Lucifer's Hammer a lot. It's a good song.

Golden God is pretty cool, and Siren's Eye is trippy. Endless and Bucket of Rocks kick pretty hard too.


Just showin some love for the least loved album :wink: .
