I just saw this performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. My instant reaction to the song’s bold statement that “This Is What Rock ‘n Roll Looks Like” was to turn to the collective wisdom of the Rock Town Hall for analysis.

Is this what rock ‘n roll looks like? Please put forth only your positive vibes!

    Positive vibes, hmmm?

    It’s a lovely morning outside. The sun is shining and I’ve just finished a yummy bowl of apple-cinnamon oatmeal. The video inspires me to listen to some early Tubes.

    I’m glad David Letterman is still on the air. He’s kinda funny.

  3. She has a lot of employees, which helps the economy.

  4. The guitar player is using an Orange amp. I’m really glad they are reissuing Orange amps because they are cool.

  5. Also, this performance restores my faith in the American Dream because it demonstrates that you don’t need things like talent or class or even a remotely interesting idea to make it big. Nope, if you want the brass ring, you just need one thing: moxie. (a crap load of luck and some T&A wouldn’t hurt your chances either)

    The title of the song is This Is What Rock & Roll Looks Like, but they don’t say the ‘is.’ This What Rock & Roll Looks Like really saves time, which is so important in today’s busy world.

    And I really like the honesty of not claiming that this is what rock & roll sounds like.

    Plus they made Dave laugh.

    I’m happy to see those pole dancing classes have been helpful. And providing employment to highly-trained artists (musicians and dancers!) during this economy is very altruistic.

    And Mike and Carol will be delighted when the kids bring home the silver platter!

  9. Unless Patty’s Prancing Poodles nudges them out for first, yet again.

  10. “This Is What Rock & Roll Looks Like” if your only exposure to Rock and Roll is Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Good to see these video game characters come to life.

    Naming your band after a synonym for toilet saves everybody a lot of mental energy.

  12. It’s nice that the lead singer kept her natural, ethnic nose. It’s cute.

    great dye jobs!

    I can’t decide if she’s cuter on the blonde side or the brunette side.

    I was very happy I wasn’t watching Meat Loaf around the 1:40 mark.

  16. Without going back and rewatching that performance I’m pretty sure I know EXACTLY the frame you have in mind! Very funny – and nice.

  17. Funny! I’m glad the drummer was able to diagnose the singer as polyp-free from where he was sitting.

  18. I can hear their manager in my head, “It’s like Marilyn Manson. With girls. For kids.”

    It could be worse, they might’ve been on Leno.

    Thank you for that mental image.

  21. trigmogigmo

    They are using the classic 4-2-4 power rock band soccer formation. 4 dancers, 2 backup singers, 4 musicians. And the goalie/singer makes 11.

  22. I’d rather watch her with the sound off than watch Ke$ha with the sound off.
