Oh, Poison, I’m pretty sure I owned the cassingle of this one, and even back in the day I thought this was a pretty silly song. Although, as you can imagine, I was pretty delighted with lyrics such as “like gasoline ya wanna pump me.” And it rocks pretty hard, no lie. AND I was lucky enough to record its “world premiere”.
After all this time, I was never completely clear what an unskinny bop actually was. I’d always assumed it had something to do with having sex with overweight women. “Unskinny” is actually a pretty polite way of saying overweight. Well, maybe not. It’s original, though. As one of the unskinny myself, I’m good with it.
Anyway, I never actually knew what it meant, so I thought now would be the time to get that question answered. But according to Wikipedia, it doesn’t mean anything. Disappointing, Poison. It’s like you guys are out for nothin’ but a good time or something.
