    General CommentGreat first single from their new album Revelations. Sure, it doesn't sound as strong as their other first singles, "Cochise" and "Be Yourself" (I believe this was the first single), but awesome nonetheless. It definetely sounds different than their other stuff. Namely the bluesy singing during the chorus. Can't wait for the new album to come out. Damn, I have to wait until September! This is a good year for rock, with Pearl Jam's new album, Tool's new album, Chili Pepper's new album, and now this (I know that I'm going to like the album; the first single is proof of that; and I saw a "Sound of a Gun" video, and it was great).

    That said, I think the song is talking about, well, rock. Rock has been proclaimed dead for several years now ('The original fire has died and gone') but there are still legions of rock fans, and, like I said before, this year is a good one for rock. (The riot inside moves on) Of course, I'm not analyzing the verses, so I'm probably wrong, but that's my input. Rock on!!
