The land of rock doesn't seem to like rock. Pussies.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Heston could play the Zep card here with great effectiveness. But he won't.

This is true only if you're talking about Gene Simmons' stool. Which I can only assume you are, since the wrongness afoot has not yet collapsed this thread into a gravitational singularity.

I'd love a neutral platform on which to perform the ultimate Black Diamond vote.

If you're serious, don't have it as a poll but rather invite a proper debate about the two versions between yourself and someone arguing for the Replacements (RP?).

Been doing that on here for years. Some people just won't accept a polished professional rock performance over a second rate, pissed-up version that seems to have been thought out and executed in half an hour. The Replacements are cool though, therein lies the problem.

The discussion hasn't been that concentrated and aiming at persuasion. People have just been going with their basic preference. And in my case, your side has two obstacles: I don't like KISS and I do like the Replacements (albeit not a huge fan). But I'm willing to keep an open mind to a serious debate.

And when the pissed-up version thought out and executed in *less than* half an hour turns out superior anyway?. . .
