For fans of the band, America's Least Wanted delivers the thrills.
It made a welcome change to the grunge misery which was starting to gain momentum at the time, even if it sounded like a song Warrant had rejected for being too cheesy. Harry Chapin was a proper one hit wonder. Nor did billions of people from around the world. Pretty Boy Floyd weren't even one hit wonders. Life Of Agony weren't named after a gangster.

Ugly Kid Joe singer Whitfield Crane ended up singing for the band Life Of Agony. No one actually remembers anything about Pretty Boy Floyd except Ugly Kid Joe were named after them.
