This live record, though, may finally bring Fu Manchu the cred it deserves. Onstage, the group tears it up, transforming its songs into powerful, throb-along numbers. And Fu Manchu has great taste in covers: Its mind-roasting version of Blue Öyster Cult's "Godzilla" is a highlight here. Two discs may appear to be too much from a band that makes AC/DC seem experimental. But once Go for It . . . Live! starts cranking, it's easy to just go with the flow and let the riffs and rhythms wash over you like the Pacific surf.
