what song is Brandon playing in his car
7 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

what is the name of that hard rock song Brandon is playing when he is showing off his new stereo system.

i've seen two different episodes where there are two different songs. they must have overdubbed a different song for some reason.

the song i wanna know is the hard rock song. it sounds like a woman is singing and it is very catchy.

overall, i liked this episode. they put in a lot of good songs and Dylan's relationship with his father is furthered more toward it's catatrophic ending. and brenda finally gives in to kelly and Dylan's new found relationship.
