Action Needs an Audience

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Tom Linton sings lead instead of Jim Adkins on this song. He explained to TheyWillRockYou.com how he ended up as the main vocalist on this track: "How it happened was, towards the end, when all the songs were almost finished and there was just the music for 'Action Needs An Audience' just sitting there, Jim (Adkins) was working on another song. Someone had the idea that I should try and write lyrics for it, so I did, and it ended up making the record!"
