All has come before

I just heard Faster Pussycat's "Ship Rolls In" for the first time in probably over 20 years. I used to like Faster Pussycat for some reason--perhaps there are other songs of theirs that hold up better. That song, however, is a blatant ripoff of the New York Dolls signature tune "Personality Crisis." I don't know how I never noticed before--I feel kind of like a dope: not only is the chord progression and event the melody almost EXACTLY the same, but the Dolls clearly were the fashion inspiration for the later band as well.









Then again...

That's a popular look for lots of bands. Guns 'n Roses nicked it from the New York Dolls, then the young Manic Street Preachers nicked it (with a sprinkling of Clash style) from them. Pouting and big hair are great.
