This song was mentioned as a clue to an "epic" song I posted not too long ago.

I knew I knew the song, just couldn't place it. It's one I always skip :D If Gabba doesn't want it, I'll answer.

It's one of those I disliked at one point and skip out of habit. I need to go back and listen to it again.

I didn't have time to work up a riff, so I'm going w/ a bass riff I already knew.

This band started as a heavy metal band in the 80's, but ended up being one of the core groups of the genre that killed hair metal. Their original stage look was to cross-dress w/ an S&M angle, hence their name.

I really don't know this band well, but I hear the riff in the song "Nutshell." Also fits the last clue. :lol:

Just listened to that one yesterday at work. I'll give others a chance to answer. I wouldn't be able to post anything until tomorrow anyway.
