Hank's daughter's band on Californication has great taste

"I got something to say, I raped your mother today".  Classic track.  "Last Caress" by Misfits.  I first heard it via Metallica.  Then it was in season four of Californication when Hank's daughter's band, Queens of Dogtown, played it in Marcy's living room.  Cool!  Then they did an acoustic version of "I Remember You" by Skid Row at a gig.  Skid Row!  Do kids today know who Skid Row is?  They did "Would?" by Alice In Chains, too.

Here's the original Misfits version of "Last Caress"

And the Metallica version

And the Queens of Dogtown version

And Queens of Dogtown doing "I Remember You"

And "Would?"

And if you're interested, the singer character on Californication - Pearl - is Zoë Kravitz.  Yeah, that Kravitz, and she sings for a band called Elevator Fight who sound really good.

While I'm at it, why don't I just put in the original Skid Row version of "I Remember You".  That Canadian boy can scream!

And Alice In Chains' "Would?"

Wow.  Who knew what a wormhole I'd end up going down with this post.
