    Should someone do an updated version of this song? I'd love to see an AC/DC version. Heck. If Motörhead was still around (disbanded after the lead singer died) they would be cool too.

    Your thoughts on who would be good at doing a remake of this "classic"?

    Interesting. But I mean a new modern twist of the song. That still sounds like the 80's version.

    Best example I can use is the music Danial Bryan uses which is kinda like a rock version of "Flight of the Valkyries" by Vagner originally.

    Rammstein has done a couple songs in English, would be an interesting group to take over. Even a German version would be cool too. But I dunno.

    I have no idea.

    Stan Bush himself did a couple of new versions of the song for Fall of Cybertron, which might be closer to what you're looking for.

    He's done several versions. I'm pretty sure the latest one was featured briefly in the Bumblebee movie.

    First one still kinda sounds like it's from the 80's imo. But the second sounds more like the 90's. Lol.

    It's not a bad cover.

    ...never has an competent yet largely forgettable musician coasted further or longer on an entirely mediocre piece of music than Stan Bush has on The Touch.

    I like to hear the original members of Van Halen cover the Touch

    Edit: Van Hagar might be alright too

    Adam Levine would be a good choice to remake the classic. Maybe he can sing it in the next movie.

    I wish Rush had done this before Neil Peart passed.
