Spit (Or a rude word as the lyric really reads if you look between the lines) Tranquilzer (Rhymed with Cold Budweiser) Don't Mess With Me (a country stomp along, acoustic number) and Evil Twin (It wasn't me, it musta been...) are all great tracks to try and download if you want to discover Love/Hate at their best.

That said the whole record is worth having if you're inclined to this kind of rock and roll.
