House of Pain by Faster Pussycat

Welcome back to Hair Metal Week at The Lost Soul of Rock & Roll. I ain't trying to fake it and I want you to know that the song of the day for November 8, 2012 is 'House of Pain' by Faster Pussycat. This song was released in 1989 and is featured on the album Wake Me When It's Over.

Did you know that the video for 'House of Pain' was directed by Michael Bay? I love hair metal videos, because they are completely outrageous. We have the black and white film with the flashbacks of the good ol' days with wife beater daddy. Did that mom in the video rent out the basement to Faster Pussycat to pay the bills when daddy bailed? The ending is unintentionally hilarious. The harmonica holding kid grows up to be a leather jacket wearing tough-guy and drops off the harmonica to his old man. The kid tries to walk out, but looks back at daddy one last time and the video ends. God, that was awful. Let us exit this 'House of Pain' and enter this House of Pain. Awwww yeah!
