Ecstasy of Gold was one of the reasons I got into O&A. It was so different from most hacky "shock jock" radio. I knew these guys were better. Opie has too many radio biz tendencies. The song is awesome, it gets me hyped for the XM side of the show, and it wakes me up. They can have user made intros after that instead of the stupid rage shit that sounds just like every other hacky radio intro.
EoG will always have s special place in my heart. 10/4/04... I heard Metallica's "seek & destroy" when my fave radio show was supposed to start @ 6 a.m. which was then followed by EoG. I get chills whenever I hear it.
