What is FX's "Rescue Me" Theme song?

The lyrics I caught were "When we were young" and "Come on, come on".

Thanks!

Yep, that's the song, I just found the answer myself at the Shield forum on FX.

Thanks for looking it up!

As for "Under Pressure", remember when that was on Queen's Greatest Hits (from the 70s), then there was a contract dispute or some BS like that and they took that song off of the reissued Greatest Hits CD. That was their (Queens) best song, in my opinion (though Fat Bottomed Girls and We Will Rock You are a close 2nd and 3rd), Bohemian Rhapsody is way down the list.

Forgot about "Tie Your Mother Down", good album.

Queen was a huge band in the 70s, then there was some dispute with their recording label or something and you couldn't buy any of their recordings for most of the 80s. It wasn't that they weren't making anything new, you literally couldn't find their recordings in stores. Then they settled the dispute but most people had moved on (though Wayne's World helped bring them back into the spotlight with their kareoke version of Bohemian Rhapsody).

The Greatest Hits from the 70s had Under Pressure on it, when it was re-released after the recording dispute (ownership dispute?) was settled, Under Pressure wasn't on it. I didn't realize that they have re-issued the song under a different compilation.

You must not be too familiar with Queen's music if you think Under Pressure is their "best song". Eeeeeek.

I think Under Pressure is one of their better songs...but I am a huge Bowie fan, so I guess I am probably biased towards him.
