“Hey Rita” – Local H

Now THIS is a power ballad, folks! If the drum and bass sound don’t blow your speakers, the ear-shredding Pixies-like guitar freakout during the latter part of the song certainly will. Yet … it’s still a ballad. Scott Lucas has one of the best gravelly “I’ve seen hell” rock voices, ranking up there with Paul Westerberg and Kurt Cobain. From the immensely awesome 2004 album “Whatever Happened to P.J. Soles?” The accompanying video is practically a black screen, but this song doesn’t need any visuals.
