Doing a quick post of one of my all time favorite bands! As I type this little write up, an epic thunderstorm is approaching. The clouds are gray and ominous. The winds are picking up, the bright flashes are getting closer and in the distances there are epic rumblings. God damn it's so exciting, it's gonna hit like a hammer! Whenever there's a thunderstorm, the first song to pop into my head is this amazing kick ass punch to the face!

The mighty Thin Lizzy! No band can convey the crackle and excitement of a thunderstorm like Thin Lizzy! This song comes from their last album which is easily their heaviest and catchiest. Phil Lynott sounds a bit strained but still his unmistakable voice is true and clear. John Sykes and Scott Gorham provide riffs of pure balls and heavy metal. It's an incredibly infectious anthem that is speedy and energetic with a chorus that is begging to be shouted out loud from arenas. Easily one of my favorite Thin Lizzy songs! The storm has now almost over my apartment. I should post this before I lose pow....
