Listen to BREADFAN by Breadfan.

Originally my plan was to play a different track, from Budgie's second album, "Squawk." Because, everybody already knows one Budgie song, and that's Breadfan, because it was covered by Metallica in 1988. Then I thought about it for a second... most people have never heard the Metallica cover (unless you have Guitar Hero!), and even fewer have heard the original, so why not just post that?

Like yesterday's track, this song is too prog to be Thud Rock, but it's still pretty dumb, precisely because of its mindless energy, nonsense lyrics, Geddy vocals, silly intricacy, and indelible Welshness. Don't get me wrong, though, it's an immense tune, if you're into that sort of thing.
