Mike Score of A Flock Of Seagulls isn’t the only guy with a bird’s nest hair doo in 1980′s music lore. Brian Setzer and Stray Cats had plenty of interesting outfits and hair styles along with some of the decade’s very memorable music.

Influenced very heavily by Bill Haley and His Comets, Stray Cats burst into the New York City music scene in a big way in the late 1970′s and early 80′s.

They were courted by several record labels in the summer of 1980.

Their self-titled debut album in 1981 provided two huge songs: “Stray Cat Strut” and “Rock This Town”
