Sometimes you just need to rock out…and thankfully, the new Guitar Hero Live still allows for that… I probably wouldn’t have come across this song without Guitar Hero Live, but I’m glad I did.  While not always a fan of their style of music, this song…

I’m not sure how many times I heard this song on the radio before I started singing along with it, but I do recall turning back and singing it at my sons while sitting at a red light.  It was at that point that I needed to figure out who sung it. After…
