The other day at work we were discussing music… specifically our favorite genre. The four of us who were discussing this all decided on the ’80s hair/glam bands as top notch.
The youngest in the group, who didn’t experience the ’80s as she was born in ’93, even agreed! She said, and I loosely quote her, “In ’80s music they said it like it is; not like all this emo stuff today.”
She’s right… Today’s “rock” music, performed by these newer bands, is pretty crappy…
For today, I’m gonna go with a band that was a bit less popular in the late ’80s; but one of my favorites ever!
Faster Pussycat! Been listening to them most of this week; damn near forgot how awesome they were!
Most people know Faster Pussycat because of this song…
… Prolly their best “mainstream” song ever!
Now get ready! This next tune is my all time favorite Faster Pussycat tune. It was never released as a single… This is one of those ones where they say it like it is, Chelsea!
Here’s an excerpt:
I got a psychopathic love
That fits like a glove
My baby bucks like a bronco
When I start to shove
Get your, get your, get your feet up to your ears
Let me slam it home and take me to Rome
And watch me disappear
Here’s a WARNING… Lead singer Taime Downe… read his name again and tell me it doesn’t crack you up (born Gustave Molvik) … hasn’t aged well from the first video, shot in 1989, and the following video from last October.

Good stuff there!
Happy Friday night, folks!
