It's been a while since I did a Fozzy post, so I'm back with a little geekery for you, based on the question they asked on their Facebook page yesterday!
They wanted to know which songs the fans want to hear on their UK/European Tour in April. Because I am a gigantic dork, I was curious to see what everyone wanted, so I may have added up the votes to find out! (Told you I was a dork!)
Here are the results:
Sandpaper - 5 votes
Enemy - 4 votes
Spider In My Mouth - 3 votes
Let The Madness Begin - 3 votes
Wanderlust - 2 votes
Dark Passenger - 2 votes
and a bunch of songs with 1 vote:
Fairies Wear Boots
Where Eagles Dare
With The Fire
Storm The Beaches
Don't You Wish You Were Me
It's A Lie
God Pounds His Nails
End Of Days
Obviously, this by no means what ALL fans want to hear, just those who happened to catch the post and take the time to make a suggestion BUT Sandpaper is a clear winner, and Enemy is a song that ALWAYS gets the crowd going!
In an ideal world, everyone would get to hear the brilliance of Storm The Beaches live, but according to iTunes, it's 11 minutes, 35 seconds long! That is one heck of a chunk of their set to take up with one song - though I guess it would make a kickass encore!
I gotta say, I think the top voted songs are bang on, and I really, truly think every show should open with Let The Madness Begin - what a way to get people pumped up! So if we take those top 6 songs voted for by the fans (still a bit iffy on Wanderlust. It is one of my favourites, but there are so many other kick ass songs I'd prefer to hear live), I'd like to add my own personal choices.
Broken Soul - not only one of my favourite Fozzy songs, but ranking high on my favourite songs of all time. Ever. It's stunning.
God Pounds His Nails - Ultimate song to get people rocking
Eat The Rich - as above
She's My Addiction - erm, as above again
Inside My Head - a little bit of gentle after all the jumping around
Eh, who am I kidding? If I had my way, the guys would perform every song they've ever recorded at some kind of super gig! :p But as that's unlikely, I'll stick with the picks above!
Speaking of Fozzy in the UK... have you got your tickets yet? If not, I strongly advise you getting your metal-loving hands on them before they sell out! You can get them here.
I'll leave you with this video of Fozzy's recent performance at Soundwave, Australia. Come on peeps, how could you not want to see these boys live?! (P.S There are lots of flashing lights in this video! You have been warned!)
Before you go, whats YOUR favourite Fozzy song?
