80's Guilt #03: Winger "Seventeen" (1989)

We don't hate musical proficiency... We just hate when it's used for evil instead of good. While we'd love to call "Seventeen" evil, there are far too many "so bad they're good" moments...

  • Amazing lyrics lmao
  • The straight-up pop-metal chorus is catchier than that credit it receives and better than anything Kiss has ever written.
  • As Kip Winger has pointed out, the hidden prog-metal elements are intensely complex. Youtube comments have been quick to point out that he doesn't actually play in the video, while those who know better can probably tell his bass-fills are anything but novice.
  • Whatever, fuck this... We just love Stewart. That's why "Seventeen" is #3.
