The signature tune by the Las Vegas band is a staple rock song, and it's one that almost any music fan can immediately sing along to. Well, what if the line “It started out with a kiss” was swapped with “It started as a tax cut”? Yeah, we're not quite sure if that phrase has the same appeal as the original.
