12 Jan Flashback Jam Of The Moment: “Unskinny Bop” By Poison
The Flashback Jam Of The Moment is “Unskinny Bop” by Poison.
The song hit number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 back in 1990. It was the band’s second biggest hit, behind “Every Rose Has It’s Thorn” back in the late 80’s.
Although the rumor was that “Unskinny Bop” was about some Poison groupies that were a little on the thick side of things, Poison guitarist C.C. DeVille said the song had no real meaning. With lyrics such as “Like gas you want to pump me” it is hard to argue with C.C. on that one.

Diagnosis: The opening bass line and guitar is total early 90’s glam. Cheesy lyrics aside “Unskinny Bop” still holds up….
