After listening to both Fly By Night and Bastille Day again earlier today, I remembered how awesome these two songs are and how similar. Who wins?

Once again, I must choose not to decide...it's so difficult.

Let the wonders of the wor-orld claim their bloody prize!

Anthem, though one's a 9.96 and the other a 9.95.

Bastille Day is the only one that's the best song on the album though.

Anthem....

Could you even imagine Rush playing this on R40?

It would be epic.

No, I can't imagine it, mainly because Ged is never gonna get those screams right with his voice nowadays. If they just played the instruments it would be cool though.

Easily a tie...both tunes are great!  Remember... Anthem was the tune that Neil first worked on with the boys!

Anthem for both.  But it must be noted that the live Bastille far exceeds the studio version.
