Fletchanator's comment: Another one-album-and-gone band, Dirty Blonde were from LA and played the kind of music you'd expect from Sunset Strip in the late 80s and early 90s - sleazy rock in the style of LA Guns and Ratt, but also with a more melodic streak than either of those bands. Most of the songs are good, although why they decided to remake Jim Croce's Bad Bad Leroy Brown is anyone's guess - either way, the song stinks. The song Push Comes to Shove was featured on the first House of Hairspray podcast.
