Panda has just solved a riddle that has plagued me since childhood

Once, when I was a boy, I saw a video on MTV. I didn't really like it or hate it, but for some reason I watched the whole thing. Anyway, my dad came in and made some funny comments about how bad it sucked. I never knew who the band was, but i always remembered the tune and chorus of the song....I was probably like 8 years old. I've always though of this mythical tune as the ultimate worst in horrible 80's Brit Rock. I kind of built it up in my head over the years to the point where I wondered if I imagined the whole thing.




So today, Panda says something about "dudes who look like Slade but could beat you up"

So I say " Who the fuck is Slade? But knowing Panda, I bet this is gonna be funny. I'm gonna Google it."

So I did.

And there it was. The video. THEEEE VIDEO!!! The whole thing. I knew what it was before I even clicked on it.

Thank you, Doug, Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Fuckin' Slade, man. It was Slade this whole time.

So why did Dad say it sucked? I disagree.

I think it was just the whole thing. The overblown ridiculousness of it all, plus the guys horrible gear, stupid hats and puffy orange hair. He kind of hates/finds humor in anything excessively Euro.

Coops, He won't remember, but he'd think it's funny that I do. I always repeat back stuff he said when I was a kid. Maybe I'll just send it and be like 'Dad, please watch this video and share your thoughts."

Oh shit, I remember that song. Fuck, you just reminded me I actually have that 45 somewhere, that shit is getting played at last call next time I'm out. That was probably their last hit here.

Thing is, Slade actually RULES.

(ignore that this video reminds me of that part in Labyrinth where those weird rasta duds try to rip the (foxy, foxy) Jennifer Connelly's head off).

Also, see the awesomely (kinda bad) Slade movie "In Flame" from the early 70's.

We cranked "THem Kinda Monkeys Can't Sing" last night. Slade rules and Quiet Riot sucks for building an entire career on ripping off Slade!

Check out 'Miles out to Sea', that song rules all Slade songs.

Slade would have been way bigger if they didn't dress like Slade.

Isn't that a popular song? I bet I hear it twice a year at least.
