Download: Garage, Glam, Punk, or Metal?
So if the Stones or Stooges or Alice Cooper or Dolls or Aerosmith or Kiss or Sex Pistols or Boomtown Rats or GN'R or D Generation came out in 2005, would people consider them garage, glam, punk, metal, or what? Bob Geldof's probably too busy to think about it this month, but NYC's Sex Slaves (who put hot girls making out and hot girls with tops off in photo booths and hot girls wearing Love It to Death gatefold eye makeup inside their CD booklets) might know. Though judging from this inspirational verse from "We're Going Out Tonight," they probably have more important things to worry about as well: "When I was 18 it was all I did/I'm not a kid anymore/But my girlfriend is."
