They just don't make stripped down rock and roll like this any more.

I first heard The Godz in 1978. Bought the album. Thought they would be big...so much for my musical predictions. Whenever I feel old I put this on, crank it up, and I feel 18 again.

Now we're stoned to the bone and we're hot and sweaty
Look at us
We're everything your parents ever warned you about
They think we're all junkies
But everybody's some kind of junkie
There's money junkies, booze junkies, dope junkies, sex junkies
And there's one thing they don't understand
All of us, you and I, we're Godz
And Godz are rock and roll junkies
Now every night we get into a different town
Every night we get high, every night we rock and roll
Every night we go crazy and we know we're killing ourselves
But it feels so good
They try to tell us that rock and roll is dead
But Godz rock and roll ain't dead
Rock and roll is why we're all here
Rock and roll is why we got long hair and get high
Rock and roll is why we dress the way we do
Rock and roll is why we move the way we do
Rock and roll has turned us into something that they can't stand
But rock and roll has created us
Rock and roll has made us machines
We can't see straight
We can't think straight
We can't hear straight
We can't feel nothing, got no heart or soul
But we're Godz
And someday there'll be thousands of us
Thousands of Godz, thousands of machines
More of us than there is of them
They can't stop the Godz rock and roll machine

Ugh. Sounds like some of the cheesy 80's Glam rock.

Were they popular? I was born in '78 but been into vinyl my whole life, not sure I've ever seen that record. Definitely not something I would have bought based on the cover though.

That album was released the year you were born. If you ever went to see Bob Seger, Mark Chatfield from The Godz was his guitar player off and on for decades. The Godz weren't trying to be Devo or Flock of Seagulls.

They sounded like what they looked like...
