Sweet: Jawbreaking Bubblegum

Sweet don't get the respect that they deserve. Was it the early "bubblegum" hits, the "glam" look that they helped shape, or the overuse of cheesy synth hooks that contributed to this lack of respect? I don't know, really. Whatever the case, they were talented musicians, had good songs, and didn't take themselves at all seriously. That makes good rock and their influence can be heard and seen from KISS to Crue--a good or bad thing, depending on your tastes.
First video: "Turn It Down".
Second video (in full glam mode): "Hellraiser".
