If your like me, who thinks Extreme are a great band and think they rock, then JOIN THE CLUB!!!

They did awesome at the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert back in 1992. That medley was one of a kind, I have it on my iPod! :D

I love it the way they changed so swiftly to each song, so strong and the crowed was MAD!

I only have their Greatest Hits, but I'm planning on maybe getting all their albums. I hear they are BIG fans of Queen?! That's a plus!

Anyone knows why they have splitted up? When? They were such a good band.
My favourite songs from them are:

Decadence Dance
Rest In Peace
Get The Funk Out
More Than Words
Play With Me

:D

The singer's not my favourite. But the Love Of My Life/More Than Words medley kicks arse.

Heck, More Than Words just kicks arse anyway.

I've barely heard of them! I'm surprised at myself!

Heres something for people who don't know much about them....

http://www.nuno-bettencourt.com/Extreme.html

"April 20 - Extreme do a Queen medley, acoustic Love of My Life, and More Than Words for the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert For Life at Wembley Stadium. Brian May introduces them as real friends, and the only people on the planet who understood what Queen was about in front of 70 000 people and millions by satellite. They were reportedly the only band the audience screamed for more of. Gary also sings Hammer to Fall with Queen."

Now that's what I call ROCK N ROLL!!! xD

Ooooooooooooo I didn't know this happened:

""Song For Love" is released as a single in the UK, a cover of Queen's "Love of My Life" that includes Brian May, is on the b-side. Proceeds go to the Terrence Higgins Trust for AIDS. A video for the song, featuring live clips of the band is shown, but the band did not officially film it."

That's GREAT!

I'm not familiar with their work,other than 'More Than Words', which is a great song. And they gave a fantastic performance at the Tribute Concert. I also VERY much liked Def Leppard's performance;)

"Play With Me"

Ring around the rosie
Hopscotch, Monopoly
Red light, green light
G. I. Joes and Barbies
Hide and seek, kick the can
Cowboys and Indians
Wiffle ball, paper dolls
Hacky sack and hangman

Do you wanna play with me

Tag you're IT, cops and robbers
Jungle gym, chutes and ladders
Tic tac toe, Mister Rogers
Marco Polo, London bridges
Simon sez, steal the bacon
Time out, trick or treat
Electric company
Olly olly oxen free

Do you wanna play with me

[CHORUS:]
Do you, do you
Wanna, wanna
Play, play with me
Play with me
Do you, do you
Wanna, wanna
Play, play with me
Play with me

Spin the bottle, post office
Kiss and tell, dressin' up
Playin' doctor, peek-a-boo
Two hand touch, cooties
Little League, Looney Tunes
Scissors rock paper, Zoom
Kick ball, stick ball
Kill the guy with the ball

Do you wanna play with me

Buckin' up, recess
Jump rope, relieveo
See saw, sand box
Matchbox, Cheerios
ABC's, spelling bees
Sesame Street, hockey
Duck duck duck duck
Duck duck goose

[CHORUS]

Jack and Suzi
Sittin' in a tree
K-I-S-S-I-N-G
First comes love
Then comes marriage
Then comes Adam
In a baby carriage



Hahahahaha, this song is so amazing!!!!! :D

Sorry, I'll take "what"

Did they make a 4th album? Because III sucked so bad that I got rid of Pornograffiti and never bought the first one.

Nuno is a pretty good guitarist, though, when not improvising.

(Sorry, this is a Queen website, so expect higher standards!! What did you expect a David Hasselhoff thread or something?)

Yest they didmake 4'th album. It is called "Waiting for the punchline" and it's very unlike their previous LP's. It sounds "dirtier" i think. But it still Extreme and it's still great music ("III Sides..." is incredible). Sorry for my english.
