They could do a song called "ZRH" -- the three letter code for the airport in Zurich, Switzerland -- similar to Rush's "YYZ."

The could cover Black Sabbath's "Zero the Hero."

"Zephyr" or "Zodiac" would be an ok song title.

Maybe "Zest for Life."

Under "Q," words like "quandary," "quagmire," "quake" or "quaint" could have some potential.

Zenith would be a cool song title

Q is a difficult one, but they have written a song called “Lord Nafaryus” so would “Quest for...” really out of left field?

Well, they've come relatively close to play Quest for Fire by Iron Maiden, since MP would have preferred to cover the Piece of Mind album, but opted for The Number of the Beast since it was more popular.

if you include the "The"s in the song titles, you can also add the letters K and X to that last. Also G depending on whether you consider Goodnight Kiss a standalone song.

I think a song starting with Question(s) would be the way to go.  As for Z.... how about an instrumental called "Zeal"?

Well, now that everyone's talking about that "10th song" of the new album, I remembered one very particular factoid about DT, and that is that they don't have a single album with 10 songs, which is a pretty average quantity of songs..

The WDADU tour and TA tour are the only two DT album-supporting tours that don’t have any pro shot footage (that we know of).
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

Mike Mangini is the only member of the band who received a box of Cuban cigars from management for Christmas last year.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

But he was a member of the band regardless of the fact that they went by a different name at the time.  :P
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

I'm with ToT on this one.  He did specify DT members, twice.  And one could also argue that because it was a different lineup, with a different name, that it was in fact a different band, even if it was mostly the same.

But every major DT anniversary (20 and 30 years) has been celebrated considering 1985 as the starting point, and that’s when Majesty was created. It’s not like they disbanded and formed a new band with a different name, they were forced to change their name due to legal issues with other band.

Their first “full” lineup had Petrucci, Myung, Portnoy, Moore and Collins, which is almost the same as the first “DT” lineup, just with a different vocalist.

Also, they recorded WDaDU under the Majesty name, and only changed it in the months before it got released. Same band, different name.

However, I also don't really count Chris Collins, just because he only did demos with the band and never performed on an album. Kind of like how Dave Mustaine was not inducted into the RnRHoF with Metallica for the same reasons.

So I see both arguments, kind of.

I know he wasn't, but for me Paul Di'Anno is Iron Maiden's first singer. And James is the second DT singer for me.

True, but Collins never performed on any official band releases, so he can be excluded for the same reason that most folks would exclude Jeff Jones as a former member of Rush and Ron McGovney as a former member of Metallica.  Also, and while this isn't anything official, one of the 5/8 references that came up when 8VA was released was that the band had five current members and 8 total members (including both current and former members).  That wouldn't have worked if you included Collins.

He was listed as a former member of the band on The Score so Far... documentary, though.

Youngest brother Randy Jackson later joined the group and with the return of Jermaine Jackson, they released Victory, the only album with all six Jackson brothers.

It's actually a pretty good album.  It's like The Jackson Five updated for the 80's.

That tour was HUGE.  Allowed the whole family to capitalize on the success of Thriller.
