“Hot Legs” – Rod Stewart

Rod Stewart pissed away all of the good will he established in the early 1970s (“Every Picture Tells a Story” is still one of the greatest albums of all time) with increasingly tacky and tasteless (and sadly, more commercially successful) material. “Hot Legs” from 1977 is arguably Rod at his most tacky and tasteless … but this is still a damn good raunchy hard rock song. With the exception of “Pour Some Sugar on Me,” if there was ever song tailor-made for strip clubs, I don’t know what is.

I really love the primitive, early music-video aesthetics at play here in the video, by the way.
