Blaze of Glory Introduction
The movie (Young Guns II) hasn't really stood the test of time (although it's now kinda fun to watch Kiefer Sutherland bringing the heat a full generation before anyone dreamed up 24's Jack Bauer). But the song remains a fan favorite, the perfect anthem for anybody who's ever wanted to be an outlaw, or a rock star… or both.
