This song immediately stands out, taking the concept of 'garage rock' to new horizons, as its characteristic blend is revealed with a more organic and vibrant essence, as if you were witnessing the band performing live, right through your headphones. This should not be confused with annoying distortions or unwanted saturations; on the contrary, Live Wire has simply done a masterful job balancing the sound of each instrument in the stereo field.

It mixes catchy melodies with the power and rawness of rock 'n' roll in its purest form, inviting you to dance and headbang at the same time (Do what you feel is best; this is exactly what this song is about).
