    All Time High would be at the top of my list if they had lit a doobie and stuck it up a hen's ass and got it to scream int o the microphone instead of Rita Cooligde doing the vocals.

    I don't count the instrumental tracks when ranking the songs of the series. They feel more like part of the score to me. I mean, nobody ever thinks to rank the excellent instrumental FRWL title track when ranking songs of the series. Easier just to stick with the ones that have lyrics for me.

    (Will post my list soon!)
