You are invited in this poll to determine together the most loved and the most memorable tunes created by Saxon.

Debuting in 1979, their last studio release so far is Thunderbolt (2018).

The poll will be in two rounds.

So, no matter how many albums of theirs you know, for the first round nominate up to 15 songs you think should be included in the band's Hall of Fame.
(no need to rank them, post them chronologically or alphabetically)

The 10-15 tracks with most mentions will go ahead in the second round.

Note: Please, add in brackets next to the song name the album it comes from.

Hope as many as possible participants are going to join this initiative.
The nomination round will be open for about 5 days.

No interest in Saxon?

Too much work to do in this format?

Yes, not just interesting, but absolutely fascinating. As a registered user in a forum called "Classic Rock", and as someone who ran a DJ service as a sideline for 24 years: No, never heard of them. Apparently they are heavy metal, but never cracked the Billboard album charts here in the US. I'm sure those here in the states who are into heavy metal were aware of them, but they didn't get any airplay on the classic rock stations during their heyday in the 80's.
