“Once Bitten, Twice Shy” – Ian Hunter

Yes, I’m glad Great White’s version was a big hit because Ian Hunter finally got the payday he so richly deserved. But the original from 1975 completely kicks Great White’s ass. Wait until 1:56 into this clip when the wall of guitars kicks in. It’s one of the most transcendent moments in rock history. The absolute GREATEST hard rock song in rock history, bar none. You gotta love a song where the piano is rocking as hard as the guitars.
