It's always been my favourite, from the first listen. It's a pity it doesn't get a live outing every now and then.

I dont wanna appear boring but "Heroes" does it for me. Second choice would have been S B C.

I kinda love the way JJ never quite gets the intro right to Heroes every time..........now that would be boring!

Almost went for NMH - The title track is the obvious choice and I nearly fell into the trap.
I remember buying the album in 1978 and the feeling on the back of my neck as "I feel like a wog" literally explodes into life.

I would have been tempted by School Mam, but hearing Hugh do 'Wog' live recently has reminded how fantastic it is...so 'Wog' for me.

NMH is a fantastic piece of songwriting - they all come together really well.

I used to love the track No More Heroes when it was first released, but I am now sick to death of hearing it because it has been in the live set list for ever :oops:

I can never get bored of hearing Heroes - it has a certain urgency about it that is still as refreshing today as the first time I heard it. Hugh has been doing some amazing versions of this in his live set over the last couple of years.

I voted for Heroes. It is a timeless classic that contains everything great about The Stranglers. In my top 5.

It never used to be a favourite of mine but I cannot get enough of "Dead Ringer" - such a great, timeless song that would rip the balls off of anything in the charts these days.
