Ugly Kid Joe
Ugly Kid Joe • Rock • Hair Metal
Sporting original hits like Neighbor and Everything About You, and a near chart topping version of Cats in the Cradle, Ugly Kid Joe gained a fair share of popularity in the early 90s.
Perhaps they don't belong here. They looked grunge, they sounded a bit more grunge, but they opened for plenty of hair metal bands.
So they stay.
The hit: Everything About You
Ugly Kid Joe wrote the anti-hero of glam tunes in Everything About You. Instead of wanting to get in good with the ladies, they openly (and deeply) expressed their distaste of whomever the song was about. Presumably ladies.
