For the letter "Z," I chose ZZ Top, one of the best classic rock bands. How could you not love, "Cheap Sunglasses," "Legs," "Sharp Dressed Man," "Give Me All Your Lovin'," "Rough Boy," "Got Me Under Pressure," "Tube Snake Boogie," "Tush," and "Pearl Necklace"?
|"Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp-dressed man."|
ZZ Top is known for its strong blues roots and humorous lyrical motifs, relying on double entredres and innuendo. (In other words their songs are about sex, but they're trying to cleverly disguise the lyrics as innocent!) The ultimate performers, ZZ Top even has a trademark look with their chest-length beards.
And who can forget their "Legs" music video with classic cars dispersing dolled-up chicks in sassy heels with sexy ankle socks? Or the "Sharp Dressed Man" music video?
ZZ Top was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004. They are the proud recipients of 11 gold records, and 7 platinum (13 multi-platinum) records.
Long live ZZ Top!
