"Eat It" - Werid Al

How about this one.

You can't sing a line like that without wearing leather :lol:

A couple more hints: 1] The metal version of the song is in the Easy Songs Index (This is the one I first heard); 2] The original writer was Peter Green of Fleetwood Mac ( Although, I think his leather was more of a suede :lol: )

You got it Elecktrablue.

Yours sounds familiar, but I don't have a guess yet.

That's close enough for government work! The title is "Back Up Against The Wall" originally done by the Atlanta Rhythm Section in the 70's and then covered by Travis Tritt in the 90's! Your turn, Izzy! :D

Cool.

It was on the radio earlier this year. Like Januaryish or so. Good luck.
