“Runaway” from the New W.A.S.P. Song
What separated W.A.S.P. from their fellow 1980s Los Angelenos was that they were fucking scary. That might seem crazy by modern standards, but it’s absolutely true! They didn’t want you to talk dirty to them — they wanted to fuck you like a beast. Big difference.
Which is why their new single, “Last Runaway,” is so goddamned disappointing. This sounds like an okay-version of a song which might have appeared on an early-90s Bon Jovi album. And I love early-90s Bon Jovi — I sincerely do! — but that’s not what I’m looking for in my W.A.S.P. Pardon the pun, but: I want W.A.S.P. to sting. This sounds like W.A.S.P. might actually stand for “White Anglo-Saxon Protestants.”
