    lol No lie , this song was on the radio on my way to work today!

    Yep I love album cuts that only the die hards know. 9 times out of time those are the best songs. My top faves are as follows.

    Alice Cooper - Halo of Flies an absolute master piece IMO and my favorite AC song. I go bat**** when he plays this live.




    Alice Cooper - Blue Turk I love the jazzy/bluesy feel and groove on this. Just shows how amazing the original Alice Cooper Group was. In my top 5 favorite AC tunes. Ignore the goofy video someone put to this:mad:




    Van Halen - Drop Dead Legs My 2nd favorite VH song of all time




    Van Halen - In A Simple Rhyme. LOVE Dave's lyrics on this. A friend once said this was the perfect VH song to play for someone who knew nothing of the band since it had everything. Great guitar riffing and solo, fast part, really slow part, the background harmonies and Dave is perfect on this track. I agreed with him and still do. The best song they ever did IMO




    Van Halen - Secrets Again I love Dave's lyrics here and and really like the laid back groove. My third favorite VH song

    Some of my favorite Iron Maiden songs are unknown. "Seventh Son of a Seventh Son", "Dream of Mirrors", "Another Life", and "The Prisoner" are all rarely mentioned by people when they talk about great Maiden tracks.

    Nice choice on Bastille Day! Good tune. Here's one I consider to be a deep cut from RUSH. My favorite song by them.

    Red Sector A

    I agree, good songs all. I love this one, it's bcome one of my faves from the Iron's. Mostly due to it being a killer track and a bit sentimental. My Grandfather fought in the battle of Paschendale.

    Paschendale




    Edit to add the linky for any history buffs or anyone that wants to learn a bit about the battle the song speaks of. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Passchendaele

    I like all of the deep cuts that have been posted thus far, especially the VH tracks. It's weird, though, since Van Halen usually isn't my cup of tea.

    Here's my favorite VH tune, I'm the One. I love the breakdown.




    Nirvana's Love Buzz, off of their first full-length. Krist plays a solid bassline in this one.




    The Who's Going Mobile. Out of all the tracks from Who's Next, this is the song I am most looking forward to playing in RB. Pete turns a great vocal performance here.




    And lastly, T. Rex's (well, just Marc Bolan in this case) Ride a White Swan. Catchy guitar riffs, and I like Marc's little solo.

    I would say this is my supposed deep cut from Rush. Out of all songs that general Rush fans know, A Farewell to Kings would not be one of them.






    It maybe a crappy live audio video to you guys, but I find this to be an awesome video. I was looking for a good video for this song and I found live audio. :) Hemispheres is another nice deep cut(I suppose), it repetitious but I find it to be an awesome song never the less.

    I would say for Yes(using a somewhat limited discography from them) would be Gates of Delirium from Relayer.

    Alice Cooper - Generation Landslide
    I think it's fairly well known amongst Alice Cooper Band fans but I'm not sure how well known it is for non-fans or casual fans. I never really hear it get much praise though, which is a shame. Probably my favorite Alice Cooper song, also my #1 song I want in Rock Band.



    Great song!! ANother of my top 5 picks from Coop and my 2nd most wanted AC song for RB, Halo of Flies is still number one.

    Also some other fantastic songs mentioned in this thread, Janie Jones, Going Mobile, Ride A White Swan, great job so far gang. Loving this thread! And I'm glad you liked the VH songs I posted Runesmith.:)

    Yeah, "Paschendale" has always been one of my favorites. I don't know how much it qualifies as a "deep track", though, since it has become somewhat of a fan favorite. The ones I listed I almost NEVER see in lists of favorite Maiden songs.

    A few more from me since I'm loving this thread so damn much.:D

    Whitesnake - Don't Break My Heart Again. The Mick Moody era of the band doesn't get much play but damn it was good stuff. Coverdale fresh from Deep Purple and he took Jon Lord with him.





    Whitesnake - Ready & Willing. Another track from the Moody era done by current Whitesnake in 2004





    Bon Jovi - If I Was Your Mother. IMO the best song off Keep The Faith. Kinda dark and twisted as far as Bon Jovi goes. Great riff from Richie. When they wanted to they could really rock.




    Def Leppard - Mirror Mirror From the second and IMO best album when they were still a NWOBHM band. Never understood why this song wasn't a single.

    Among the fans around I hear Prisoner mentioned a lot. And the amount of bitching from fans on forums that IM are not doing 7th Son of a 7th Son on the current tour is pretty large. I get what your saying however. In any case none of them were well known songs outside of the fan base. And I mentioned Paschendale as like I said I love it and Dance of Death is pretty much regard by a large percentage of the fan base and metal community to be crap. I disagree with that sentiment but it's out there. In any case

    UP THE IRONS!:D

    Well, one thing is true: Iron Maiden owns. "Dream of Mirrors", however, I would say is probably the most underrated Maiden song. So much awesomeness.

    Most of my favorite songs are the deeper tracks. Most of my favorite Blink-182 songs's are (Voyeur, Romeo and Rebecca, and Dumpweed to name a few), Green Day's "J.A.R." remains one of my favorite songs, and normally I'd mention my favorite deep track as "Something About You" by Boston, but it's pretty well known now around these parts (but still not to the public in general).
