The drum intro, the catchy riff and the opening vocal line of this song are enough to grab anyone’s attention and the magic of it never wears off no matter how many times you listen to it. An amazing song from start to finish. Rival Sons have talent coming out of their ears!

Aerosmith – Train Kept A Rollin’
Aerosmith was the first rock band I discovered and have been one of my favourites ever since. I saw them performing at Download in 2017 which was completely inspiring. This song particularly was a guitar masterclass.
Sim (Bass/Backing Vocals)
Royal Republic – Getting Along
My favourite song from one of my favourite bands, it’s just too upbeat not to love! The bass gets juicier throughout the song with some tasty runs towards the end which make it better and better right up to the last note.
Connor (Drums/Backing Vocals)
Babymetal – Iine!
line! is definitely something that stands out from the music I usually listen to, as is most of Babymetal’s music. But there’s just something about the combination of crazy metal riffs and anime-styled vocals that blends really well. The freedom in that track is inspiring, it’s basically 3 different songs slammed together with a ‘who-gives-a-f@£&’ attitude because it sounded cool to them, and I can really get on board with that. But most importantly, that drummer has got some serious skills.
Favourite Tracks from Fireball Tour Bands
Less Than Jake – All My Best Friends Are Metalheads
This song reminds us of rock nights at our local club since it would be played every week without fail, so it has some great memories attached to it of nights out together.
Goldfinger – 99 Red Balloons
This song and Superman were both played at the club almost as much as our Less Than Jake pick, but 99 Red Balloons edges it since it’s just such a fun version of a song you wouldn’t expect to hear a ska band to cover.
Save Ferris – The Only Way To Be
We’re all fans of this one in part for the cool guitar intro but also the message that fame can easily go to your head so it reminds us to stay grounded no matter how far our music takes us.
