Musical Interlude: Glamour Boys (1988)

Living Colour may have been meant to be a metal band, a rare breed at that, being an African-American metal group, but they crossed over to pop metal with "Glamour Boys", the 4th single from their 1988 CD, "Vivid".

The video is a commentary of a sort, as the "glamour boys" are actors wearing mannequin head masks. In one scene on a subway train, singer Corey Glover pokes his head out from behind an issue of the British comic book, 2000 A. D. Monthly. Like, who knew?
