Agree very much with sentence 1. Not so much sentence 2.
We get it, you’re trying to topple Heston and Hoy from the bad taste mountain
Nope, I'm really not that sad. Just stating an opinion that I don't like a certain song. On the subject though, Heston seems to have a decent taste in music, Hoy I need to know more about.
Let me tell you about Warrant's underrated post-grunge period...
The mountain's all yours.
I only mean post-grunge in terms of it coming out after the grunge explosion, not the "post-grunge" genre, but Warrant's 1992 album Dog Eat Dog is criminally underrated. A continued stylistic evolution from their party boy Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich glam metal days through the more stylistically diverse yet hugely commercial Cherry Pie, Dog Eat Dog sees the band tackling climate change ("April 2031"), fame ("Andy Warhol Was Right"), and other more serious topics. The stand outs are the brutal "Inside Out", the sweet "Sad Theresa", and the epic "Quicksand." The singles "Machine Gun" and "Hole In My Wall" never did much for me and it seemed like them trying too hard to hang with the heavier grunge and metal that was becoming en vogue. Skip those and bask in some of those glorious Joey Allen pinch harmonics on like every solo. Steven Sweet's always phenomenal drumming also shines.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Can't judge if I haven't heard it to be fair. Dog Eat Dog on the list for work tomorrow, will give an honest listen and opinion.

Oh god, I wasn't serious. I mean I am, but I'm not seriously recommending you listen to Warrant's third album and try to take it seriously.

There's stuff I like and am happy to embrace, but would not try to get anyone else into. This falls into that category.

I'll genuinely listen to anything from George Formby to George Ezra, give me your best 3 from the album, I'll listen to it all though.

Charlie Don't Surf is an exceptional song. Street Parade is a very good song - but not on the same level.
Agree very much with sentence 1. Not so much sentence 2.
We get it, you’re trying to topple Heston and Hoy from the bad taste mountain

I gave it a fresh listen and it's one of those tracks I've probably underappreciated. It's really pretty good. The chorus is good, but the production is a bit lacking.

It was after listening to the Japan live boots that I really appreciated how great a song it is.
