Music: Danger Danger
Danger Danger is an American Hair Metal band based in Queens, New York. The band was formed in 1987 by vocalist Mike Pont, bassist Bruno Ravel, and drummer Steve West, though Pont later left and was replaced by Ted Poley. Their first album was simply known as Danger Danger and produced hits "Bang Bang" and "Naughty Naughty" (and no, not all of their songs are repeated words like the band's name).The album Cockroach went through some legal issues; it was was recorded in 1993, after which Ted Poley was fired. Naturally, Poley was not happy, so he ended up suing. The album eventually did get released in 2001 with two discs, one with vocals by Poley and one recorded by replacement vocalist Paul Laine.In 2004, Laine left and Poley returned, with the album Revolve being his first Danger Danger Album since Cockroach.On the subject of Ted Poley, he has done some solo work and has contributed to the soundtracks for the Sonic the Hedgehog series, with "Escape from the City" (recorded with Tony Harnell) being one of the more popular ones (Poley worked on a remix in Sonic Generations, though Harnell did not return).Compare to Hardline, a similar sounding band that came out during the tail end of the Glam scene and also had a member providing music for Sonic
Danger Danger provides examples of:
- All Men Are Perverts: Well, at least the song "Boys will be Boys" seems to think so.
- Anti-Love Song: "Killin' Love."
- Bowdlerise: "F.U.$" was likely given that title because it would have probably been harder to distribute a song called "Fuck You Money."
- Cluster F-Bomb: Present in "F.U.$."
- Hard Rock: Some of their work falls under this.
- Heavy Meta: "Rock America"
- Intercourse with You: "Naughty Naughty." A lot of their songs actually.
- Lyrical Dissonance: "F.U.$.". It sounds like a typical 80s love ballad, but the lyrics are about wanting to have enough money that it would be basically a middle finger to everyone else.
- Mohs Scale of Rock and Metal Hardness: Usually around 4-6.
- Money Song: "F.U. $" of course.
- Take That: Ted sings of being as rich as Donald Trump with better hair in "F.U.$." (Of course, Ted definitely has a lot of hair◊.)
