To be totally honest, I wasn't wowed in any way by Danger Danger's debut record. However, some songs like "Bang Bang," "Naughty Naughty," and "Don't Walk Away" were so good that I definitely wanted to see what their sophomore record "Screw It" sounded like. While the debut didn't wow me in any one area, this album cemented me as a Danger Danger fan.
Danger Danger honestly had every element needed to be a successful hair-metal band back in the '80s. These guys had the look down to an art form, they were talented musicians, and they wrote super catchy (although often cheesy) pop-metal songs. For some unknown reason though, they just never were able to crack the big time and reach the heights of bands like Warrant and Poison. This, however, didn't stop Danger Danger from releasing one of the strongest, and maybe silliest pop-metal albums of the early 1990s. A majority of the songs on "Screw It" are so good that if you modeled what 80's hair-metal was supposed to sound like, it would be these songs. However, like so often, you must have some good with the bad; and there are some pretty awful filler songs on the album as well. Songs like "Crazy Nights," "Slipped Her The Big One" and "Everybody Wants Some" are stand-outs, and easily the best D2 could offer, tracks like "Horny S.O.B." and "Yeah, You Want It" are horrific to say the least.
While D2 never achieved huge amounts of success back in the day, this album is still a favorite among pop-metals fans all these years later. I recommend the record to anyone who likes the scene and still wishes their rock music had a bit of spandex, hairspray and cheese factor involved with it.
