Something seems seriously wrong with this. I would personally find it extremely patronizing. That being said, the Japanese isn't really producing anything less embarrassing. Case in point...
If the 80's was good for anything it's cheesy love ballads and this one is epic. One thing I've learned is if you were in a soft-rock band in the 80's, a mullet and/or mustache was a requirement.

Yes, it's Max Headroom; the celebrity created out of the greatest technology the mid-80's had to offer!
I grew up in the '80's but I never remembered Max Headroom featured in a song. How that ever sounded like a good idea is beyond me.
I can tell by this song these guys were trying to mimic Pink Floyd, in hopes to grab even a sliver of their popularity. Sadly for them, Pink Floyd had talent and they don't; these guys are just annoying.
Yet another song I loved growing up. But something about this song has always bothered me. I eventually realized that there are only two chords and the song's structure is kindergarden:
Intro, Verse, Chorus, Verse, Chorus, an Interlude sandwiching a Guitar solo, Chorus and an outro finalizing w/ shave and a haircut.
Rock-n'-roll by the books. Even the lyrics are very systematic and I have little appreciation for that; it's a thing for novelty and children songs.
I'll give these guys one thing, however: I feel they are one of those bands that transformed music from the sound of the 80's (long hair bands, electric pop, etc) to the sound of the 90's (grunge, modern and moderate rock, etc). This would have given most anyone else a pass but Ugly Kid Joe was a pretty marginal band over all. But after saying all that, I still like this and a few other Ugly Kid Joe songs.
