Metal Express Radio has been hitting the globe for ways to keep our listeners happy and this week we managed to wrangle in our first contest give-away of 2006 …

New Joe Satriani Contest!
Metal Express Radio and Sony Music are rolling out a new contest this week to celebrate the release of Joe’s new Super Colossal CD (coming in March). Sony Music is offering up 5 copies of the new CD.

 Joe was famous for including references to Marvel Comic’s alien superhero Silver Surfer in his music.

Name the Satriani albums that contained Silver Surfer references (i.e., dedicated tracks).

Email the correct answer to by 23:59:00 CET (5:59 p.m. EST) on March 10, 2006.  5 winners will be chosen at random from all correct entries received.
