Brian J. Names That Band

Severian calls them:

I remember a situation like this from way back in the days, involving ballplayer Chuck Finley and the awesomely named model Tawny Kitaen, who was best known (and immortalized in a lyric by a goober band unfit to hold Whitesnake’s jockstrap) as the girl who “shook her ass on the hood of Whitesnake’s car.”

The band: Bowling for Soup. The song: “1985”.

The album: A Hangover You Don’t Deserve. Yes, I have it. And now I will probably listen to it.

I hadn’t planned to mention it until next year, but soon “1985” will be closer to the actual 1985 than the song’s release is today. But that’s next year.

I was going to say that the song was not the hit off of the album, but, yeah, I guess it was.

Man, 2004 was a crazy time. Or a normal time that seems crazy now. And research, which is the YouTube search for the video indicates that the band is still touring, and will be playing St. Louis next month. I will not make it.

Now, if anyone needs me, I’m going to listen to some Juna Serita as a palate cleanser.
