This is a record I was so excited to find on Record Store Day. I grew up in the Chicago area and when I was a kid just getting into pop and rock music Steve Dahl was at his height. I actually started listening a couple years after this record, but I do remember some of the media coverage of his "Disco Sucks" campaign. One song I remember by Steve Dahl was "Crew Cut Hero", which was a parody of Foreigner's "Jukebox Hero." General James Lee Dozier was kidnapped by terrorists in 1981 and this song was in reference to that. Dahl also had another song about serial killer John Wayne Gacy called "Another Kid in the Crawl." Pretty dark stuff, but as a dumb kids we thought it was funny. Check out the YouTube clips below.
