I never noticed Firehouse has two videos for their hit "Don't Treat Me Bad" until last night. For Christmas, Heather gave Eric a guitar book filled with music for all the songs we love. One of those songs is "Don't Treat Me Bad." He was having trouble with the rhythm so I popped the song up on YouTube. That's when I saw the two versions of the video.
Metal Mania typically only features the video with the girl going nuts, destroying all of guitarist Bill Leverty's stuff. Here's that version.
The other video reminds me of Whitesnake. It's very dark and takes place in an alley. Things (naturally) catch fire and a beautiful woman (naturally) is the antagonist. Watch for yourself.
So, what's the deal? This was during the time that labels would still spend a little money on signed bands to ensure success, so perhaps Epic executives thought two videos would equal twice the album sales. Whatever the case, it seems a little superfluous to me.
