Stiv Bators, Dead Boys & Lords of the New Church

Stiv Bators of the Dead Boys (who later went on to become Lords of the New Church) played a very significant roll in the early American Punk music scene and later in his/ their career, blurred the lines of glam-punk & Batcave Goth-Rock (that is, Goth-Rock before mall stores like Hot Topic helped to homogenize a whole lifestyle & genre of music for many of us).

A long, long time ago, the Lords of the New Church covered Madonna's 'Like A Virgin'. To add insult to injury, the guys chose an album cover that would make even the strongest of stomachs churn. Dig Stiv Bators, in all his tea-bagging glory. Call me silly, but I don't think Stiv was actually a 'virgin' at the time of this photo shoot...more research will need to be done.
