What’s Wrong With Being Sexy?

    Well, if you choose to listen to the lyrics of songs by a band whose very name is slang for a gentleman’s equipment, then I think you shouldn’t expect anything else…

    Fair point. I wasn’t aware of that slang usage back in the early 80s when I first heard the albums….

    I remember my girl friends reaction to the come and get it album cover,check out the snakes mouth. How they got away with that, I have no idea,

    However, they were brilliant live in the late 70s and early 80s before he discovered hair metal
