#26. Hanoi Rocks – ‘Million Miles Away’

Pull out before you Finnish, please.

Ah. Glam. Hateable, ’80s glam. At least these guys were just a rock band dressed up like weird ’80s pirate strippers instead of a wannabe badass hyper-sexual, hyper-straight metal band dressed like gay bikers from Mad Max.

Also, Hanoi Rocks are only really famous because Motley Crue murdered their drummer or something. And to be honest, I’ve listened to a couple of their albums and bar a few songs I don’t think they’re much to write home about. The early stuff is basically just The Clash dressed like glam metal dudes and the later stuff is fairly standard mid-tempo rock for the time, but ‘Million Miles Away’, with all that sax, is a nice tune.
