Nitro - "Freight Train"

Here is a band that defies explanation. Michael Angelo Batio is one the fastest guitarists around and Jim Gillette has a range that is beyond belief. As song writers, Nitro is awful. However, I absolutely love the O.F.R. album and all of its excess. The solos, the screams, the shredding, it just grabs me and does not let go. Take a look at the video for "Freight Train" and tell me that this is not fun. I have a hard time taking it seriously, but it is a great tune.
