Tuff Darts - All For The Love Of Rock 'N' Roll

Breaking away from the cover scene for a moment today we have some Tuff Darts.
Tuff Darts were an American Punk Rock Band. The band reached their greatest fame in the 1970s with such songs as (Your Love Is Like) Nuclear Waste and their biggest hit single, All For The Love of Rock and Roll. The band appeared at popular New York City clubs like Max's Kansas City and CBGB and had only released one album, 1978's Tuff Darts!, produced by Bob Clearmountain and Tony Bongiovi, released by Sire Records; before breaking up a short time later.

Having played in bands since the early 80's, i know a little about what these guys are talking about. when they sing "i don't care about the money, i aint seen none." Truer words were never spoken. So it IS all for the love of Rock and Roll!!!

This is from the Live at CBGB's album on Atlantic records of all labels and from 1976. And imho this is just a GREAT Rock and Roll song from oft overlooked band. And even thouh this has its punk pub rock leanings, this is a Rock and Roll song. I suspect that a few of these guy had mustaches and were playing cover songs of Freebird a few years earlier but they got it right with this one!

It IS All For The Love Of Rock 'N' Roll i do what i do and have been doing for a very long time!

Sounds more like KISS than 70's punk to me
