Mama Tried

I was too young to really be conscious of its significance, but was it considered subversive for Cheap Trick to be singing, "Mama's all right, Daddy's all right" back in 1978? My sense is that the prevailing ethos back then still maintained that your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock 'n' roll.

Maybe because they were rockin' rollin', rollin' numbers and had his Kiss records out - all of which were quite acceptable then. They must have been the "cool" parents! Sociopaths!

I dunno... To me, they just seem a little weird.
