Retronaut Favorites: Faster Pussycat

Published on 18 August 2021 at 10:45

My earliest memory of Faster Pussycat is playing “Bathroom Wall” on Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks The ‘80s.

As I got older, I remember talking about them with my dad, and he would always mention how he really liked their second album, “Wake Me When It’s Over”.

I finally gave “Wake Me When It’s Over” a listen during my first year of college, and I remembered loving it, and I was astounded at how great it was.

I also recall hearing “Nonstop To Nowhere” on a Concrete Corner tape. It was during a night when I was going through cassettes, and I remember really enjoying that song, eve though it’s a little different than their earlier catalog.

I love Faster Pussycat and I always feel like they’re really misread. I say this because everyone knows them for “Bathroom Wall”, which is a great tune, but there’s so much more to them than that song and “Wake Me When It’s Over” proves that. It has so many great songs and it’s so underrated.

There’s always more to a band than a hit song. It doesn’t mean you have to hate the hit, but be open minded to hearing a band’s catalog because it’s worth it to give stuff a listen. You’re never obligated to love everything, but learn to give things a chance, and then form an opinion.
