"Up Around the Bend" as written by and John Fogerty....
There's a place up ahead and I'm goin'
Just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away, if you're goin'
Leave the sinkin' ship behind

Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get while the gettin's good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neons turn to wood

Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

You can ponder perpetual motion
Fix your mind on a crystal day
Always time for a good conversation
There's an ear for what you say

Come on the risin' wind
We're goin' up around the bend

    General CommentHanoi Rocks are the greatest glam band in existence.
    Not only did they spark the success and ultimately influence Guns 'n' Roses, but Michael Monroe, is like, what? 46 now? and he still manages to rock out ultra hard without selling out to the poser rock 'n' roll image (ala Motley Crue)
    Hanoi Rocks never got the chance to make it as big as they should have, and i blame Vince Neil.
    Nothing beats Hanoi Rocks.

    General CommentI'd say there more punky than glam, apart from their image, but yeah if Razzle didn't die they probably would've been big. They are one of Axl Rose's fav bands.

    General CommentI think Michael is 45, but anyway. I agree with that "I'd say more punky than glam".. Like Andy said that they're a rock band on the record and a punk band when they're playing live. I must agree with him!

    Hanoi Rocks is the best band in the world in my opinion, with The Beatles. And maybe Led Zeppelin.
