[ Video ] The Hooters: 500 Miles

The Hooters is one of the big mysteries among the numerous 80s bands. They never relied on campy synthesizers, nor rainbow-colored costumes. They produced melodious songs with a traditional usage of slide guitars, as clearly heard in this song. But they still went down. The Hooters poses a serious challenge to the “Fashion killed the 80s stars” theory. Was making a single out of a cover version of a well-known song a sign of death? Watch out, Hollywood.
