Dead Milkmen – Instant Club Hit (You’ll Dance To Anything) – Cassette
The most entertaining and ridiculous thing the band ever did takes deserved center stage — “Instant Club Hit (You’ll Dance to Anything).” Consisting of drum machine fills, intentionally basic basslines and Rodney Anonymous’ instantly recognizable sneer, it’s a hilarious, all-too-knowing rip on ’80s new wave / dance culture. With lines like “Oh, baby, look at you, don’t you look like Siouxsie Sioux” and “‘I met Andy Warhol at a really chic party/Blow it out your hair, dude, cuz you work at Hardee’s!” it’s hilarity personified (and bizarrely enough won them an appearance on an MTV dance show, where they encouraged a bout of stage diving). Nothing equals that song’s sublime satire, but the Milkmen still stir things up with a touch more fire and sass than before.
