Pornograffitti was the album that put Boston’s Extreme on the musical map. The band’s version of funky pop metal reached the Billboard top 10 and spawned two top 5 singles. “Decadence Dance”, “Get The Funk Out” (with it’s play on words, “this party’s over, so get the funk out”) and “Pornograffitti” are the rocking numbers on the disc. “Li’l Jack Horny” is a word play on nursery rhymes for adults only.

However, it was the unforgettable ballads “Hole Hearted” (#4) and the smash hit “More Than Words” (#1) that pushed Pornograffitti over the two million sales mark. Extreme was very good, and this album displayed them at their peak — one can only hope that they reunite one day. Pornograffitti easily receives two thumbs up!
