Back in middle school, young and mostly innocent as I was, I just thought the song was cool because of the hook-y guitar work and slick sound (since that was kind of what I was into at the time). I still think the song has held up well over the years, even after arriving at a position to actually, you know, understand the lyrics the way a 12-13 year-old normally doesn’t.
Jani Lane, the singer, died last week, and while I was never a huge Warrant fan the song was a staple for big-hairband-listening life in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Grab your whipped cream, and enjoy a slice of pie in his memory.
