Hardly the worst offender from the 80s. I never understood the backlash.

A co-worker of mine messaged me this video two or three years ago on Facebook, talking about it negatively affecting his career.

Wow!!! I actually liked that song back then, but to my knowledge never seen that terrible video. That's bad even by 80's cheese standards lol

Dude was crushing it until that video, which was a brick wall for his career. It didn't just negatively affect it; it brought it to a screeching halt for all time. Haha.

The homophobia was strong in the 80s. lol!

Yes it was, it is a terrible video but the album is pretty damn good, I have most of Billy Squier's solo discography, but it has been awhile since I have given any of his albums a fresh spin

I just have a greatest hits comp from him and that's pretty much all I need. That said, every song on it is great.

The video was terrible. There were other videos I thought sucked worse. The song is really good though.

His early albums are very good classic rock. Especially the “Don’t Say No” album. He had a strong Led Zeppelin influence.

I would like to get my hands on the two albums he did with piper.. It’s kind of hard to find good clean copies of the vinyl and the CD is outrageously priced
