As part of my ongoing efforts to educate the masses about an archaic musical genre that nobody really liked in the first place, I’ll be highlighting some of the forgotten classics (i.e. all of them) of the hair metal era. Anybody who had harboured any lingering respect for me up to this point will soon see the error of his ways.

George Lynch formed Lynch Mob after the original line-up of Dokken disintegrated in 1989.

Their one and only hit album, Wicked Sensation, was released in 1990. Singer Oni Logan left soon afterward, and the band flagged badly as grunge trounced hair metal in everything but the style stakes. The band endured a volatile ’90s, breaking up and reforming regularly, though 1998 proved a particular low point as they attempted to capitalise upon the popularity of rap-rock with Smoke This – think Tommy Lee’s Methods of Mayhem but way, way shitter.

‘Wicked Sensation’ is the opening track, the title track and the best track on their debut album. Vocalist Oni Logan isn’t particularly distinctive a singer, but Lynch found him nigh-on-impossible to replace, and it’s not hard to work out why on this impossibly catchy pop-metal number.

N.B. Lynch Mob are now available for keggers and pool parties.
