It's one of the best songs on the box set. I was at the Borgata when it was played live. Combined with Jon's speech before it it was a very intense experience. As with so much - you can see it on the Borgata DVD but it doesn't come across with the intensity it did live. Give the song another chance - or two.

I am a huge fan of the entire box set. Sure there are a few I don't bother with but there is a very large pool to pick from and I enjoy most of them.

To each his own I guess, but to me the vocals/lyrics are extremely powerful.
"I used to live, but now I survive. I used to believe, now it's just one day at a time." Just gets me all the time. The solo's good as well.

Oh yea, one of my favorites on the box set and actually one of my favorite Bon Jovi songs.

I love the box set. Songs like Satellite and The One That Got Away are lyrical gems in my opionion. I also dig the groove of Too Much Of A Good Thing, it's actually got quite the country vibe going on.

The Fire Inside! LOVE that song. I'd sacrifice a finger to hear that live in a full band version!

I agree with all the songs that have been mentioned so far as standouts.

I have to add Nobody's Hero, although the arrangement is so simple is just stunning and one of the best songs on there imo...

I agree it does nothing for me. As for the boxset. its prob the best thing theyve released in this century. Its certainly the CDs I listen to the most out of all the recent albums

I love Last Chance Train and Miss Fourth Of July...and actually most of the songs on that boxset. And of course Last Man Standing and Thief Of Hearts. but i do like the HAND version of Last Man Standing better than the boxset version.
