Album Review

After Nirvana changed the landscape of rock music in 1991, countless hard rock bands found themselves with a dwindling fan base and no label support. But what makes Faster Pussycat different from the Bang Tangos and Kik Tracees of the world is that they were hitting a creative peak right as the hard rock backlash began. Although it wasn't exactly amazing, Whipped was a confident, strong effort from a band that was much better than the stereotyped genre they were lumped in with. The juvenile sexist anthems were catchier and more clever than anything they had delivered before (check out "Big Dictionary"), while they found themselves traveling down a few new musical paths.

After the group's split, singer...
