Wikipedia describes Pretty Boy Floyd‘s early days as follows:
“After rehearsing and playing a few shows on the sunset strip, Pretty Boy Floyd got their big break at MCA Records. Their debut album named Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz was released in 1989 and produced by producer Howard Benson.
Two singles, and accompanying promotional videos were released from the album; “Rock and Roll (Is Gonna Set the Night on Fire)” and “I Wanna Be With You”, which gained rotation on MTV. They were also having success in Europe at the time, by being the cover subject of hard rock magazine Kerrang! on December 16, 1989.
Pretty Boy Floyd became embroiled in a dispute over the copyright of their band name, with a Canadian band also called Pretty Boy Floyd. The Canadian group released their debut Bullets and Lipstik the same year, but after a negotiated settlement agreed to surrender use of the name.
Their music featured on two movie soundtracks, first the demo version of “48 Hours” was included on the 1989 The Karate Kid, Part III film. Two years later the previously unreleased “Slam Dunk” was released on the Ellen Barkin movie Switch soundtrack. However, by that time MCA Records had dropped the band.”
