This guy? Dance Billy Dance, Prance Billy Prance, you can do it Billy, do it for the man Billy, oh Billy Billy Billy say it ain't so Billy. Trust me Billy I'm your manager, I'd wouldn't steer you in the wrong direction. Mark my words, it's gonna be a huge hit, a real career boost, would I lie to you?

No really this actually happened. Behold the end of a career.

I can still remember having conversations with friends back then about how much we hated the whole spandex thing, the makeup, the hair, all of it. It just didn't work for us, visually or musically. I couldn't even imagine wearing those types of outfits, we were jeans and t shirts type of people, denim jackets timberline boots and those wallets with chains. Not tough guys, but just regular guys that weren't playing games with masculinity and feminism, just guys.
The image and the music were a huge turnoff. The gawdawful ballads....especially about children, were turgid, over-produced and ridiculous when matched with the image.

Wow The Stains, that really sucked sweaty balls. It's almost as if they've never played their instruments before.
