Heavy Street is known for its cheese factor, but I’d like to think we do have our limits on this site. I woke up Saturday morning, and Poison’s Behind The Music VH1 special was on. Man, was it cringe worthy shit. I lasted about 10 minutes before I had to change the channel.
Like any other metalhead, I like the odd Poison song or two. They normally get cranked in my car (with the windows rolled up of course). You know their are dudes out there wearing their Brutal Truth, and Entombed shirts who know the lyrics to “Talk Dirty To Me”, but will take that secret to their graves. So yeah, the odd Poison song here and there is ok, but most of it is just rancid cheese.
I do also admit to seeing the band live in 1989 in Calgary at the Saddledome. The only reason I went, was because Tesla was opening up, and I loved that band. “Modern Day Cowboy”?….damn straight!!! I stuck around for Poison, and did my first “meh” at the tender age of sixteen.
Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah!….if you wanna hear an annoying narrator talk about the band like they were such an integral part of the hard rock world. Or if you’re looking to delve more deeply into the complex relationship between Bret and CC, then this show will be right up your alley. All hail the bandanna, wig, and the most politically charged lyrics this side of Rage Against The Machine.
