Good times Reply Gosh I love That Me-262A Reply In Bama about 1974 or 75 got turned on to these guys from New York city by my friend Mark lorren and been rockin ever sense. Also last days of May and cities on flame with rock an roll Reply I started listening to BOC because of a band called Ghost. People in the comments saying their songs sound like BOC. So I started listening, to be honest to this day I don't regret it. I like a lot of the older rock like AC/DC, Queen, Ozzy, just to name a few. Now I have another band to add to that list. Reply People will never fkin learn. . .you don't have to choose or compare between versions. You NEVER have to choose just one in life, its a lie. Its too keep you divided, to keep you polarized, to make it easier to manipulate you. Refuse to be a simpleton, let every song stand on its own merits, there's no such thing as best or worst. Take those two warring parts of your mind and bring them back together like they once were. That's the only way we ever escape this slavery that we've been imprisoned in for thousands of years. . .that's what this album is about for christs sake. Reply ME262 on the cover, not as good as the HE162, but still a brilliant German aircraft, so ahead of its time….. Reply Ted Bundy Reply I'm a huge Metallica fan and this was way better than I expected. I've only heard from BOC from Dont Fear the reaper and burnin for you but this seems like a legit band Reply i always play this around Halloween and the changing of the season Reply Metallica's cover. True tribute to Blue oyster cult Reply HALL BOTTOM LINE Reply Until you can explain the lyrics, you've got no business complaining about a cover by a band that could. Reply Amazing.

"Moon Drops burst out at you from their hiding place"?"You'll want to know where stars come from"?"…the origin of sin.."?WTF?!? Reply I did a meet and greet back in 2006 with these guys in Williamsport. I was 14. All i listened to was boc. It made my world. Still recall the show. These guys rock. Todays generation has no clue. Reply Who's listen in june 2019? Reply How in hell can the assholes running the R&R hall of shame justify leaving this band out?
