    Yeah, do "Eye." Your singer could come out wearing red boxing shorts and a towel around his neck!

    Rocky: "Adrian! Adrian!"

    Mickey: "It's over, Rock! There ain't nothin' on earth gonna save ya now!"

    Rocky: "Nothin's over, just gimme somethin' to drink!"

    It's my understanding that the lead singer for Survivor, whatever his name is, sings on the Budweiser real American heroes commercials. You know--the Mr. pickled pigs feet eater/Mr. giant foam finger maker guy! That's what I heard, anyway, from more than one source. Anybody else heard those rumors?
     
  7. I haven't heard that but it's a sweet rumor, i hope it's true. I voted for "Tiger" too, not only is it a cool retro song, but as much as I love Aerosmith (and trust me I'm a huuuge fan), they need to ban that song from the airwaves permanently. It's so cheesy. Plus with Eye of the Tige both chicks and dudes can get into it, whereas Don't Want to... mostly appeals to the ladies, and the dudes will be going to buy beer or take a whiz.
     
  8. thanks for voting
    we are having troubles getting drummer to play tiger but we will beat him till he does
    lol

    I say do eye of the tiger given the choice between the two... I like to do less modern pop tunes... good ol 70s funkalicious tunes are great covers IMO :)

    That Aerosmith tune (Desmond Child?) is weak.

    Well, I think it depends on how much you hate the crowd, do you want them to leave? I mean, if you do, go with the aerosmith thingy and get all the guys to take their girls out. :D I voted for "eye" also, but playing "miss a thing" would be good to get people to leave and/or go get their beer/ take a whiz! :rolleyes: Yep, that's MO, what's yours?
     
  12. Do it the GD way!!!
