Transcript of the Show
The first song of the show always sets the tone and tonight the theme. Can guess what this episode of Hard, Heavy & Hair is all about?
Mötley Crüe – Girls, Girls, Girls
I don’t need to tell you that was Motley Crue with “Girls, Girls, Girls,” and it is the perfect song to open this particular 2-hour show of the sexiest hard rock, heavy metal, and hair bands. This is the Hard, Heavy & Hair Show with Pariah Burke. I’m your horny hard rockin’, heavy drinking, hairball of a hedonistic host Pariah Burke.
Last week was the Strong Ladies Night Happy Hour episode of Hard, Heavy & Hair celebrating strong women and rejoicing at the indictment of Harvey Weinstein who victimized so many women–allegedly.
The night the show aired in my city, I had a little listening part with my friends. If you’re a fan of the show, you probably already surmised that I spend a lot of time in strip clubs, and that many of my friends, and most of the women I date, are strippers, though a few prefer to be called exotic dancers or gentlemen’s entertainers. No offense intended, Aurora and Jasmeen, if you’re listening.
So, I’m having this little listening party get together, and a few of my friends in that profession asked me about the Ladies Night show. They told me they liked how I focused on songs that were not only BY strong women, but usually had themes and lyrics about BEING a strong woman. That’s me. I joke around, and I obviously like having sex with women (sorry fellas, I’m totally straight, but I get flattered by the fan mail regardless)… Anyway, you’ve heard me on the air actually entertaining women in my studio during the show, sometimes more than one, and you’ve heard me tell some wild but all completely true tales. What you SHOULD pick up on in all my stories is that I respect and value women greatly. That’s why exotic dancers like me; I treat them like people. We have fun in their clubs, at the stage and in the VIP room, but I also separate the job from the woman doing the job, AND I respect the job and the woman. That’s also why it’s easy for me to date strippers; I don’t get jealous of their jobs.
Knowing all this about me, these friends of mine asked me why I’ve never done an on-air tribute to them and their profession. I’ve played requests by my stripper friends and girlfriends plenty of times on the show, and I’ve played songs *I’VE* picked for them, songs that related to something private to us, like an inside joke or something we were talking about. I’ve also gone the other way; I’ve played on Hard, Heavy & Hair songs I first discovered soundtracking pole dances in strip clubs. As you might expect, being in the profession I am and spending so much time with dancers and at the clubs, I tend to get to know the club DJs, too. We trade music recommendations.
But, still, I’ve never done an on-air tribute specifically to exotic dancers, entertainers at gentlemen’s clubs, strippers. I promised my friends I’d rectify that at my earliest opportunity. You’re about to hear that tribute.
This show is dedicated to the hard working women who make their livings peeling off their clothes.
In fact, every song you’ll hear over the next two hours, including the Cover Song of the Week about which I’ll begin dropping hints shortly, is chosen this week NOT by me, but by my friends. Every Hard, Heavy & Hairy song you’ll hear is one my friends or theirs strip to.
This is the Hard, Heavy & Hair Stripper Appreciation show, a show comprising only Songs to Strip To as Chosen by professional Strippers.
“Girls, Girls, Girls” started the show, but the pole position song is a modern stripper anthem. Here’s My Darkest Days featuring Zakk Wild and Chad Kroger with “Porn Star Dancing” to kick off a four-way of the most iconic songs to strip to.
My Darkest Days – Porn Star Dancing
GodSmack – Voodoo
Warrant – Cherry Pie
You’re listening to Hard, Heavy & Hair with me, Pariah Burke. This show is all songs to strip to, a playlist chosen entirely by professional strippers. It’s all the sexiest, nastiest hard rock, metal, and hair band music for bouncing booty, moon waltzing, and spinning.
You just heard Aldo Nova and “Fantasy” from back in ’82. Before that was the most stripped to song in the history of rock, “Cherry Pie” by Warrant. Ahead of that was GodSmack’s “Voodoo,” a song even GodSmack’s Sully Erna recognized as one of the most popular strip club songs of all time.
Coming up is hits and deep cuts by Def Leppard, Hellyeah, Nine Inch Nails, Winger, Enuff Z’Nuff, Kix, Heaven’s Edge, Type O Negative, Seether, Breaking Benjamin, and many more. There’s also a cover song that directly connects Michael Jackson, Billy Idol, and Ratt.
Another cover coming up is the Cover Song of the Week, a mystery I drop hints about throughout the show while you try to guess the song, the artist that originally recorded it, and the artist covering that song this week. Here’s your first hint:
The original song contains actual and intentional back masking, the process of playing a spoken or sung section in reverse to obscure the lyrics. If you were to reverse the backmasked part of the song, you would hear “Hello! How are you? I’m fine, ‘Cuz I know that the lord is coming soon… Coming, coming soon!” which is opposition to the alleged main use of back masking to include messages supposedly promoting or glorifying Satan.
More Cover Song of the Week clues later.
That song connecting Michael Jackson, Billy Idol, and Ratt is coming up in 8 minutes.
Tesla’s lead singer Jeff Keith used to be a strip club DJ. You might think he did that BEFORE making it big with Tesla, but that’s not the case. In 1996 Tesla broke up. It was then that Jeff Keith, the lead singer of a band that sold 14 million albums in the US alone, starting spinning pole and lap dance songs. None of Tesla’s songs made the list of best songs to strip to, but a band Tesla frequently tours with created one of the most popular songs to strip to ever! Here’s the remix version of “Pour Some Sugar On Me” by Def Leppard followed by Nine Inch Nails, Hellyeah, and Shaman’s Harvest.
Def Leppard – Pour Some Sugar On Me (Remix)
Hellyeah – Pole Rider
Shaman’s Harvest – Dirty Diana
Nine Inch Nails – Closer
“Closer” by Nine Inch Nails there on the Hard, Heavy & Hair tribute to strippers, an entire show of songs perfect for peeling off your close to. All songs have been chosen by my friends who make their livings taking off their clothes at places like Stars Cabaret and Mary’s Club in Portland, Oregon, Mario’s Showplace in Webster, Massachusetts, and Molly Brown’s in Daytona Beach.
I spent many a night at the rail and in the champagne room asking dancers their favorite hard rock, metal, and hair band songs to dance to. Then a group of close friends who are strippers helped me refine the lengthy list into the show you’re now hearing, the Hard, Heavy & Hair Songs to Strip To show.
Before Nine Inch Nails you heard Shaman’s Harvest covering Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana.” It’s a song I first heard in a strip club, with a buxom, dark-skinned beauty named Lisa-Marie did broomsticks and tear drops on the pole. The original Michael Jackson version of “Dirty Diana” features Billy Idol’s guitarist, Steve Stevens, playing the heavy, dirty guitar. The song also connects to sleaze rockers Ratt by virtue of the actress who played Diana in Jackson’s music video. The actress was Lisa Dean, who also appeared in the video for Ratt’s “Round and Round.”
The appropros Hellyeah song “Pole Rider” was before “Dirty Diana”.
Remember, gentlemen: If you’re sippin’ you better be tippin’.
Now please welcome to stage 1 the up tempo rocker “Can’t Get Enuff” from Winger’s debut album. Rob Zombie, Enuff Z’Nuff, and Breaking Benjamin get ready. You’re up soon.
Winger – Can’t Get Enuff
Enuff Z’Nuff – In the Groove
Breaking Benjamin – Topless
Rob Zombie – Pussy Liquor
Oh, yeah. Can’t you just see the hips swaying to the beat of Rob Zombie’s “Pussy Liquor”? A strong, sassy lady striding confidently across the stage right at you, then sliding down your chest until she’s in your lap. That song was added to the playlist by my curvaceous friend going by the stage name Brooklynn.
Breaking Benjamin was before that at the suggestion of a gracefully moving lady calling herself Treason. That was the song “Topless”, which followed the bluesy, sexy “In the Groove” from Enuff Z’nuff, which itself followed Winger telling us he “Can’t Get Enuff.” As you heard, you COULD get enough, thanks to a request by the Creole beauty Devereaux.
Strippers all over America and Canada know I can always be counted on for private dances but ESPECIALLY for stage love, making sure that, if I’m in the club, they’re never left wondering if anyone appreciates their stage work or dancing to an empty rail. Dancers hate it when you sit in the back and watch without tipping, guys. Similarly, I want dancers everywhere to know you can also always count on me for a little on-air appreciation. That’s where this show came from.
If you’re a stripper, an exotic dancer, or whatever other title you apply to your work, reach out and say hi. You can reach me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, all by searching for Pariah Rocks, or just visit PariahRocks.com to email me or find links to all my social profiles. Let me know if you liked what I played on this week’s show, if you like the show in general, and if there’s any other music I can play for you. If you’re feeling brave, tell me at what club you dance. Maybe I can come by sometime and say hi in person.
Let’s take a short break for the one song in tonight’s show not directly chosen by exotic dancers.
Indie & Unsigned is a regular segment in which I play for you a song by an up and coming Hard, Heavy, or hairy artist who either hasn’t signed with a label yet, or who is with a small, independent label. This week’s Indie & Unsigned is checking in with an old friend of the show, Lynchburg, Virginia-based Last Nights Villain. Here’s their latest, a song called “From You”.
LNV – From You
LNV, Last Nights Villain, with “From You” in the Indie & Unsigned segment of the show. LNV is going to go far. Mark my words., and remember you heard them first right here on Hard, Heavy & Hair with me, Pariah Burke.

You’re listening to Hard, Heavy & Hair with me, Pariah Burke. This show’s entire playlist is by request, songs my friends and theirs use on stage. It’s all music to strip to.
Even the Cover Song of the Week was chosen by a stripper, by a woman who has meant a lot of me over the years, a woman named… Well, if you’re a regular at Portland area strip clubs you’ll know her as Danger. Here’s your next hint to help you guess the Cover Song of the Week before we get to it.
The original song being given a harder rockin’ cover this week is allegedly the instigating song that caused Tipper Gore to initiate and co-found the hated PMRC, the Parents Music Resource Center, in 1985. The future Second Lady was allegedly outraged when she heard her 11-year-old daughter listening to the song, which was a popular single of the time. Mrs. Gore then started the PMRC to exert control over music deemed to have violent, drug-related, or sexual themes. And the song in question, the Cover Song of the Week, did indeed have overt sexual themes despite airing in heavy rotation on Top 40 stations of the time.
Ponder that while you get your girl money ready and take a seat the rail. You wanna see skin, they gotta see green. You gotta spend your girl money.
Kix – Girl Money
Joan Jett & the Blackhearts – I Wanna Be Your Dog
Heavens Edge – Skin to Skin
In This Moment – Adrenalize
Make sure you get a private dance. Get a stripper on your zipper… Gentlemen, this is pay-per-view, and pay-per-touch.
That lady isn’t shy, fellas. That was Fearless pirouetting through the franticly flashing lights to the energetic In This Moment hit “Adrenalize.” Before that, on stage 2, was Philadelphia melodic hard rockers Heavens Edge with “Skin to Skin,” something YOU can do in the VIP lounge. Just ask your favorite dancer for a private dance. You won’t be disappointed. You might even get her to dance for you to a replay of the song you heard before Heavens Edge, which was Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”
You’re listening to the Hard, Heavy & Hair special “Songs to Strip To, as Chosen By Real, Working Strippers”. This show is all songs to strip to, a playlist chosen entirely by professional strippers. It’s all the best hard rock, metal, and hair band music for pole, floor, AND lap work. So practice your aerials, pop that pussy, and clap those 6-inch acrylic heels!
How are you doing guessing the Cover Song of the Week? Ready for another clue? The band covering that song that allegedly inspired the outrage behind the PMRC is a Seattle group that started as a one-man project by a surviving member of Nirvana after Curt Cobain’s death. The act is no longer a one-man project, and has been going strong since 1994.
Keep guessing! The Cover Song of the Week and the answer to all the clues is coming up soon. Before then, you still have time for a lap dance. Gentlemen, you can grab a sexy lady for one-on-one time, or bring your girlfriend back with you and watch HER get the dancer’s ministrations and gyrations.
A private dance is only $40 per song or 3 for a $100, and that’s a bargain with Type-O Negative, Seether, and Theory of a Deadman soundtracking YOUR intimate experience with the most beautiful ladies in the city.
If you’re still out front at the stage, this next song is perfect for a lollipop pickup.
Theory of a Deadman – Bad Girlfriend
Seether – FMLYHM
Type O Negative – Black No. 1 (Little Miss Scared)
How about a round of applause for the Treason! Treason, boys and girls! The slim Goth beauty with moves so fluidly sensual it seems like her tattoos writhe around in different directions than her legs, especially during a song like “Black No 1” from Type-O Negative. Before that, the mistress of floor work, straight from the Cathouse in LA, Amber Jade with her requested Seether song, “FMLYHM”.
Have you guessed the Cover Song of the Week yet? I’ll give you one more hint. Charity suggested this song as the Cover Song of the Week because she, quote, really likes the imagery of the song, especially on lines like “I can’t tell you what she did to me but my body will never be the same.” and “I met her in a hotel lobby masturbating with a magazine.”
You MUST know the song now. So, here it is, this week’s Cover Song of the Week, “Darling Nikki” as covered by the Foo Fighters, followed immediately by the original version by Prince, from the legendary Purple Rain soundtrack. Both versions are perfect for floor and rail work, bending over with arched back and tracing your fingers up the back of your legs… all the way to the top… and then crawling seductively into guys’ laps for the chorus where YOU are the Nikki they watch–and feel–grind.
Foo Fighters – Darling Nikki
Prince – Darling Nikki
Grind to that song, ladies, and you’ll have the guys tripping over each other to get you back for a private.
Can you believe that song was in heavy rotation on Top 40 radio stations in the mid-80s? It was allegedly the final straw song that inspired Tipper Gore to gather up gal pals Susan Baker, Pam Howar, and Sally Nevius to found the PMRC in an attempt to label and restrict music. Fortunately, the PMRC failed, falling apart just a decade later after not having accomplished much. Even the Parental Advisory, Explicit Lyrics labels on music wasn’t really the PMRC’s doing. The Recording Industry Association of America voluntarily slapped the labels on albums with profanity and mature themes as a way to undercutting the PMRC before that organization could do any real damage.
We lost Prince too soon, of course. This month would have been his 60th birthday. If you’re a fan, Princes family is releasing a new album on September 21st. Called Prince & A Microphone 1983, the album will contain a 1983 home studio recording made on a cassette tape of Prince playing on his piano as well as other previously unreleased demos and variations of his most famous songs including Purple Rain.

This next song was a favorite on several of my friends’ lists. Here’s Buckcherry with “Crazy Bitch.”
Buckcherry – Crazy Bitch
Buckcherry there, a wicked dancing song you can use for ALL your moves and tricks, especially if you want to get fierce in his face.
