I keep scanning through the list and feeling like I have a handle on how 'butt rock' is being used in this context but then it keeps slipping away. Like okay: 'Black Betty', 'Mississippi Queen', 'Frankenstein'. I get it! But then 'Hold Your Head Up'? 'Enter Sandman'? I don't get it!

I heard 'Hocus Pocus' the other day for the first time in a while and, man, that is a hot fucken jam. A jam with some weird-ass yodeling and scatting tacked on here and there, but a jam nonetheless.

I didn't know that either!

I don't even care that the band was basically manufactured after 'Black Betty' dropped, that Ram Jam album can get it.

highway star and born in the usa are probably the best songs, but they aren't buttrock imo (space truckin' and glory days are much buttier songs by the respective artists).

radar love also feels weirdly out of place, not easy enough to sing along (tho it rocks hard).

black betty and tush are the buttiest, but i think i'm gonna have to go with black betty cause i still get amped when that song drops lol

You are spot-on with your butt rock replacements for Deep Purple and Bruce. I would suggest that 'Twilight Zone' is a much butt-ier choice than 'Radar Love'.

Conspicuously absent butt:

Black Sabbath, period

Maybe Cafferty - 'On the Dark Side'? Surely Mellencamp had something appropriately butt-y. .38 Special?

I mean yes, of course, there is good butt rock and lame butt rock but(t) in the interests of science we should set our prejudices aside in determining which songs fit. All I am saying is give butt a chance.

Sammo Hazuki's Tago Mago Cantina (Old Lunch), Friday, 7 February 2020 18:25 (seven months ago) link

why won't you just butt out of this

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Friday, 7 February 2020 18:27 (seven months ago) link

My friend and I tried to whittle down a definition, and what we concluded was it had to have a certain lack of ambition (ymmv). That is, it can't be funny on purpose ("Godzilla"), it can't have a clear unified artistic vision (AC/DC, Van Halen, ZZ Top), it just has to be butt-stupid blues-riff based rock. So, like, BTO's "Tacking Care of Business" is a yes, but in our opinion "Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" is a no, since it's got some cool chords in it. "Black Betty" is a no, because that thing is complicated as hell, and we didn't included stuff like Kiss, because Kiss is lame. Boogie always helps hit the buttock sweet spot, but our top picks were stuff like "Smoke On the Water" and for sure "Mississippi Queen" and "We're An American Band." Bad Company's "Feel like Makin' Love" deserves some, er, love, too. We considered stuff like Sabbath and specifically "Iron Man" as kind of honorary ur-butt rock.

Ok, this is wild. Just looked, and the Nazareth album featuring "Hair of the Dog" (it's called "Hair of the Dog") features some really surprising cover songs: in addition to "Love Hurts" (Everly Brothers), there's "Guilty" by Randy Newman and a song called "Beggars Day" written by Nils Lofgren, drawn from the sole Neil Young-free Crazy Horse record! Weird. (The bonus tracks on the expanded edition include covers of Joni Mitchell, Little Feat, Frank Zappa and Tomorrow, the band featuring Steve Howe before he joined Yes.)

Whereby premiering in February of the decade and announcing Yes, the Seventies are here and here is cowbell; and
Whereby forming as a musical combo on Long Island and probably only knowing Vicksburg from high school history class (as is true of myself); and
Whereby aforementioned cowbell being played by a guy named Corky; and
Whereby being and American combo, yet associated with Cream, the John the Baptists of buttrock; and
Whereby begging our pardons, as if we do not know what is meant, when there is no doubt; and
Whereby seeming like a much longer song, long overstaying its welcome, yet running only two-and-a-half minutes; I
Therefor, have settled on Mississippi Queen

Good results! Top 5 are all top butt-rockers in my book. Noting though that 4 of the 5 are blues-rock to some degree, and only one is flat out butt-rawk imo. I missed voting, but it woulda been Grand Funk.

“Black Betty” is too fast for the genre, rest of the top 5 is pretty much accurate. “Tush” clearly the winner in a perfect world.

What if it were called "Hit Me with Your Butt Shot?" Either way, the guitar solo in that one is waaaaaay too slick for butt rock.

ironically it's easier for a female singer to channel the sexual aggressiveness of cock rock than it is for her to channel the tedious male homosociality of butt rock. I respect Joan Jett and Pat Benatar's efforts to run with the butt boys, but I don't think either of them has produced a whole-ass butt rock staple that you can grunt along to at the bar with your shithead bros without feeling the need to unleash a string of "no homos" afterwards. sad case of a genre failing to live up to the inclusiveness of its name (everyone has a butt!) and growing even more male-dominated in its '00s post-grunge incarnation

applying the looser criteria of polyvalence to buttrock: you can include Born in the USA because there are plenty of people who hear it and think, "I was born in the USA! Yay! USA!" ... and hear "Slow Ride" and think "Slow Ride! Cars cruising! Yay! Slow Ride!" idk

There's definitely something to this- unintended butt-ness. Locomotive Breath is butt, because "Got him by the balls, YEAH!" even if it is Tull's only throughly buttrock moment.

Sorry to go way upthread, butt:

foreigner and Foghat et al feel so “American” that i think ppl are often shocked when they realize thats not the case

Butt iirc the thing about Foreigner was by having both American and Britishes members, the name would be true everywhere they went.

Natalie Wouldn't (Ye Mad Puffin), Friday, 21 February 2020 15:05 (seven months ago) link

Foreigner bridged '70s butt rock to '80s Mutt rock.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 21 February 2020 15:10 (seven months ago) link

I can buy "Hot Blooded" and "Jukebox Hero" as butt rock.

Much of the rest of Foreigner's output has a thorny/spiky/icy quality that I don't think associate with butt. "Cold as Ice," "Head Games," "Urgent" - synthy nervous songs rather than joyously dumb power-chord guitar songs. They are underlain by paranoia and attempted sophistication.

Put concisely: they are not keg-party singalongs. Note: Not all keg-party singalongs are butt rock, but all butt-rock songs are keg-party singalongs. It's sort of in the DNA of the genre.

My definition of butt rock definitely has to do with the intended audience and said intended audience's reaction, but it's very rooted in a specific time and a specific way of life. So for me, a true butt rock track must have engendered a certain kind of response from that specific audience at that specific place and time.

When a butt rock song comes on the stereo at a party in a wood-paneled basement, a butt rocker will either lift his beer in the air and say FUCKEN A or FUCK YEAH. Alternatively, he can keep his beer hand close to his chest and raise the other hand in a devil-horn gesture.

The arch-butt-rocker has a used El Camino or Firebird purchased with earnings from Trak Auto. He owns and wears a Confederate-flag headband. He lives in his parents' basement but it has a separate entrance so chicks can come in and out without being introduced to his parents. There may or may not be a black-light poster of a panther.

In this view butt rock is a musical genre that reflects a lifestyle, indeed a state of mind.

Natalie Wouldn't (Ye Mad Puffin), Friday, 21 February 2020 15:52 (seven months ago) link

> Does The Cult fit in here?

Rick Rubin kept the flame going didn't he? Buttrock's tangential legacy was bringing the wallop to early Def Jam, so much of which had a "FUCK YEAH" quality to it. He then spent the 90s attempting to elevate a lot of Foghat/Nazareth type bands of varying levels of self-awareness.

lol at Black Betty winning this -- clearly an example of the votes for songs based on ilxors' tastes in music as opposed to "voting for the most butt song" (the Nick Cave verson of Black Betty slays btw, first version I heard). Still, congrats to a significant portion of voters keeping it real by voting for actual butt jams like Slow Ride, American Band, and Butt to the Bone
