Yes, good song. And this was a killer version.

Unfortunately, this was really the only good song they had. That's why, some 35 years after it was released, you still can't name another Living Colour song.

Vernon Reid was a shredder though.

Need more brothas in rock. Unfortunately, most of them choose the path of that low IQ retard rap "music".
Hell, in many ways, the brothas sorta invented rock music. Ask Marty McFly.

Invariably this Wednesday when I go to Chic Fil A, the woman will ask if the money I left on the counter is mine, and I'll smile and say, "No its yours". - B.P. in Houston

one of the really interesting things about Vernon Reid's playing is he completely goes away with economy picking for his solos, when he proves he can economy pick during the main riffs... it's an interesting stylistic choice, his wrist is only flexible when he wants it to be

edit: forgot to mention it reminded me of SRV never using his pinky
