In the mid-’70’s, “drag rock” (rock played by men dressed in women’s clothes) was a subculture of glam-rock, and one of the key bands in those days was The New York Dolls. The frontman for the Dolls was singer David Johansen, and several years after the band fell apart, he re-emerged as Buster Poindexter. His songs combined jazz, lounge, calypso and novelty songs, and he appeared regularly on Saturday Night Live in the late ’80’s and early ’90’s. “Hot Hot Hot,” according to Buster, is “the bane of [his] existence,” because of the song’s popularity in Karaoke bars, weddings, and commercials (though I doubt he minds the money he’s making in royalties). The song reached #45 on the Hot 100 and #11 on the Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1987-88.
