Do You Know The Treatment?

Ever heard of The Treatment? They’re the band who will be opening for KISS and Mötley Crüe as part of The Tour this summer. If you haven’t checked them out yet, you really should.

The band describe their own music as ”classic rock,” but there are definitely some Glam influences. Their debut album This Might Hurt came out last year, and they recently premiered their latest video for the song ”Nothing To Lose But Our Minds.” I really enjoy both the song and the video. What do you think?

Even though they are young, they aren’t exactly beginners: they have already toured with Alice Cooper, Steel Panther and Thin Lizzy in Europe, besides their own headline tour and festival gigs. I saw them myself when they were opening for Steel Panther in Paris in March and they put up a great show. It's not often a band you've never heard of gets you hooked after only a few songs, but they did. I’m really excited to see them again this summer with KISS and Mötley Crüe.

Since I saw the new video, their album has been on constant repeat in my speakers and as I said - if you haven’t checked them out already - you definitely should! And if you do have a ticket for The Tour, be sure to be there on time. I assure you it will be worth it!

Similar in structure to "All The Young Dudes," but not a bad song overall.

I flagged that, too, BatLizard. Thing is, it's even closer to something else I can't quite put my finger on. Someone on here might flag it.

Thing is, it duzn't even matter because they are awesome! In fact, I just picked up their album on Ebay. Thanks for the tip, Kim!

Ladies and Gentlemen, THIS is Rock & Roll!

I also saw them open for Steel Panther (Copenhagen) and yeah, definitely worth checking out!

for some reasons..I started thinking about the Argent tune "God gave Rock n Roll to you"..upon hearing the start of the song...

First Green Day did it and now The Treatment. How can you just lift the chorus of "All The Young Dudes" and expect nobody will notice? Having said that, I really dig the tune and will check out the rest of the album...

Hmm..will check them out! Other good opening band for this tour would be Reckless Love, Crashdiet and Ghost

Not the first band to rip off "All the Young Dudes," although it's pretty blatant. Try Green Day's "21 Guns." Actually, ELO did a passable rip-off with "Telephone Line," only 4 years after the original.

Assuming that "All the Young Dudes" wasn't ripped off of something else.

I was thinking Telephone Line too. Still a decent song though.

Singer's voice reminds me of Joey Tempest a little bit. The song is somewhat like Europe's "Time Has Come"

That's it! They pulled a Cheap Trick!

When they don't have a big hook (like the killer riff of "Stiff Competition"), Cheap Trick's formula is to put 3 great songs in a blender and come out with something relatively fresh sounding.

These guys took the best parts of Mott's "All The Young Dudes", Argent's "God Gave Rock And Roll To You" and ELO's "Telephone Line", combining them into one song to create a masterpiece.

Genius!

p.s. good calls, Bob, M. and Gene! Not so much, Glamfly. I actually hear a little Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes.

Good tune. Yeah,it's (the opening) pretty much the exact chord progression from 'All The Young Dudes".But alas, there are 7 major chords to pull from in music. They've all been done a million times over,in every possible progression.Trick is to make it your own by mixing in little flourishes here and there and have fun with it. (Ala Cheap trick)

Lets face it.Rock started by ripping off the blues.....8-)
