Brooklyn Brats - They Lived to Rock




At least back in the mid-80's they did, when this five song picture disc was released. "No One Tells Me No" and "Wrong End of the Rainbow" still hold up after all these years. "We Live to Rock" not so much. "Can't Stand Your Love" and "Guess I Don't Mind" were filler back then and time hasn't done anything to change that fact. Still an important document of the time and place that was the Sunset Strip back in the 80's. Best part of the whole thing...their drummer's name was Dane Rage. I wonder if he went into gay porn after the band broke up, he already had the name for it.

Track List:
We Live to Rock
No One Tells Me No
Wrong End of the Rainbow
Can't Stand Your Love
Guess I Don't Mind

  1. That drummer, Dane Rage, was also the drummer in the original version of LONDON, which also had a bass player named Nikki Sixx. You must've heard of him.

  2. Ah yes, I remember London. And what about Vertigo? The band Nadir D'Priest was in before London, right?
