Remember Nasty Savage? We don’t either, but they were a Florida thrash band signed to Metal Blade in the mid to late ’80s before breaking up and briefly reuniting about a decade ago. At any rate, back in 1984, they cut a low budget cable commercial for Flair Family Hair Care, the place where they got their hair done. In addition to the ad being cheesy even for 1984 production values, the best part of the ad may be the shot of them getting their hair styled – but behind some oblivious kid getting a haircut. We’re presuming that they got free hair care for their appearance, just the way Cinderella hopefully got free chili dogs. And it’s nice to see that the ‘Florida Metal Blade bands appearing in low budget commercials‘ trend continues to this day.

    From those of us that do remember,shame on you for being so negative on a story that even you stated, you know nothing about. Nasty Savage is one of the BEST bands that came out of Fl. & Rocked NUMEROUS other places AROUND THE WORLD.Though they’ve gone their own ways,we continue to enjoy them as much as day one & some of them STILL continue to be AWESOME performers!! As far as the commercial goes..DUDE!! It was the 80’s & a hometown business!! You can bet your bottom dollar they brought Flare Family Hair Care PLENTY of Business!! 
    That post just leaves a bad taste for your readers’,or former readers’ in some cases’.

    what a lame web zine, do your home work on the bands you post on your site, you don’t remember Nasty Savage cause you were still swimmin in your dad’s nut sack!

    I’m aware that the band have their fans. I’m not saying anything negative about them at all. I’m old enough to have been around when the band was, but am not/was not familiar with them. I’m not saying and didn’t say anything negative about the band. Even Ben, who posted the video, said it “seems cheesy” in retrospect. And it is. But it’s also rad, just like the Cinderella ad (a band I do remember because I’m from Philly).

    This guy lists Cee Lo Green, Muse, Jeff Buckley, Radiohead as his musical interests on Facebook. Nuff said!
