Rockin' Funnies: Dog Police (1984)

Here's a one-hit wonder that really went to the dogs.

"Dog Police", by the band of the same name, was a winner on MTV's Basement Tapes, but that's not where I first came across this clip. Instead, it was on Night Flight on USA Network. The chorus is a ripoff of the theme from the Spidey Super Stories segment on the original Electric Company, a fact that seems to have escaped the notice of most music critics. If you're of a certain age like me, and you'd remember both "Dog Police" and Spidey Super Stories, well, I think you'd get the idea..........
