I wasn’t sure if I could get through a rock and roll A to Z Challenge without talking about Fat Bottomed Girls or the best damn fans in the land – females.
Why do you think most guys start bands? The money or fame? No. The music? Not always.
The correct answer is women. A lot of guys start bands to meet women.
Some chicks are offended by this song. I am not one of them. It’s about women who have a little more junk in the trunk. I can totally relate to that. Who doesn’t like songs that they can relate to?
Women my age have grown up in a time when it’s okay to have big butts. “Fat Bottomed Girls” is a precursor to “Baby Got Back.” I’m not sure what happened in the time between “Fat Bottomed Girls” and “Baby Got Back” that made it acceptable to have a big butt. It’s fine with me because now girdles are a thing of the past.
It’s not easy to make the rockin’ world go ’round. Fat Bottomed Girls still get the job done.
