Working Class Hero and We Are The Champions are tied for me. Billie's voice in WCH is just...omg. It's amazing. :wub:. And I get goosebumps whenever I listen to WATC. It's such a powerful performance. I have to see them play it live before I die.

Id say it'd have to be My Generation, and I Fought The Law.

My Generation because of the guitar,bass and drum solos in it, followed by "Heineken, fuck that shit!"

And I Fought The Law is just awesome. :woot:
