Broke, Disgusted, and Can’t Be Trusted
Originally titled Asskicker, the 16-song album Broke, Disgusted, and Can’t Be Trusted ended up being their most cohesive (and loudest) album, staying in more familiar hard-rock/heavy-metal territory akin to Concrete Jungle. Their biggest gamble on this album, “Monsters,” also resulted in their biggest payoff; it wound up being the band’s most popular song. The song was unintentionally co-written by Bill Gow’s daughter Sarah; Gow heard Sarah singing the seemingly unintelligible lyrics to this song as she wandered around in his basement and liked them so much that he wrote them down and turned them into a demo. Volpe heard it and took it a step further.
Other standouts include “Asskicker,” an AC/DC knockoff that was originally meant to be a tribute to Stone Cold Steve Austin. It now serves as Anthony Volpe’s theme song. Volpe’s “Something to Live For” appeared on the album as well and served as a cross between Aerosmith and Elton John.
